I have to say I had hoped previous reviews were wrong.....when I made reservation several months ago I was so excited to have gotten Notre Dame football tickets that I did not review hotel carefully as I would have normally done....very sad place...I feel SO very sad for wonderful kind young women that work here. They do Their best to...

Let me preface this by saying I can find good in just about everything. People make fun of me because I can find some humor in about every situation. It was a real challenge at the Econolodge in South Bend Indiana. So we came in for a Notre Dame game. I live in Dallas and travel quite a bit. I've...

They've already abandoned the building on the south side of their parking lot, why not give up on the main building and let something new be built on this property. Worst room I've ever been in anywhere ever. Filthy in every regard. Old and in poor repair. And, it's less then a mile from Notre Dame. What an embarrassment for...

Broken "secured" doors, door key didn't work, bathroom not clean,, soap left in shower, pubic hair in shower, staff incompetent. Worst hotel I've stayed. I will never stay there again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It wasn't worth it. I felt unsafe and the room was dirty.There was pubic hair in the shower/tub. Pretty sure they didn't wash the shower,which made me wonder if they...

I have to admit - my first impression of this Econo Lodge was not great. First it is a motel not a hotel; all rooms have an exterior door that you park in front of. Half the property is abandoned and padlocked. The exterior is obviously not cared for. The room was musty but clean. However, everything worked and there...

dirty, shower curtain rod broken. It was a real dump the room was dirty , lots of broken things in the room . The front desk was no help. I would not stay ever again in this motel but it was late so we did not want to look for another motel.

Over the past 3 years, I've traveled over 250 nights. The 2 night here were the worst. There was no Wi-fi. There was no breakfast either day (website says Free continental breakfast). The room smelt of cigarette smoke (website says Smoke free). My room phone could not even call the Front Desk. The few channels on the television that did...

The hotel experience was bad from beginning to end. We arrived after midnight and the front desk staff person did not know where our room was located within the hotel. After some searching, we found it on the outside, facing the parking lot ... nowhere near where we directed. The room was filthy, with stains on the bed sheets and...

I would have stayed here. From the outside it looked clean and well lit, the lobby was nice too. The lady who was behind the counter tried to get me a room , and said the computer was down. Then she went into the back room, and tried on another computer. No dice. Then she called "Dave". He didn't have...

Moldy carpet, terribly dirty air vents, I ended up getting a horrible infection and still am sick one week later It is now econolodge and the people were nice but the rooms nasty.I have been on two sets of antibiotics.
