Thanks for the review and I apologize if your truck roof was ht by a pipe. We have clearly marked signage of 5'8" at both entrances and low clearance. The pipes are actually closer to 6'. Again our apologies.

We stayed on the east side of building with good view of St. Joseph river. I wasn’t impressed with the garage packing fee. As a hotel guest, I expected at least a discount. $15 a night was irritating.

our apologies for the garage parking fee. We are in line with the other downtown garage facility parking. There is a great deal of overhead required to maintain a garage for the comfort of parking out of the weather We thank you for your business.

The hotel was within a quick walk to several places to eat and the Morris Theater where we attended a show.

Nice but a little Noisy

Pros: The view overlooking the St. Joseph River and the comfortable beds, as well as a great Fitness Center.
Cons: At a $159 starting price, I would think the hotel could provide a "free breakfast". Even though the beds were comfortable they seemed small.
Hotel staff was friendly and courteous. Our room was clean and comfortable, but a tad small. I thought being up on the 8th floor would be quiet and peaceful, however, we felt as if we were sitting at a rock concert with the bands playing on the river at the Century Center. The Fitness Center was amazing as was the pool and whirlpool. We didn't do breakfast at the hotel, since there are so many excellent places to eat in South Bend. We did have a wonderful view overlooking the St. Joseph River though. The price through Travelocity was the only true reason we stayed. There is no way we would have paid $159 for one night especially with no free breakfast in the morning. At the price we paid I'd give it a 4 out of 5 stars. If we had been charged the usual full amount it might have made 3 stars...

Great location and view.

Pros: The facility is very accommodating.
Cons: Water pressure in our room was a bit low.
Location: Was there for a family reunion so did not look for things to do.
Beautiful facility, room was clean and the view was awesome. The restaurant was also good and staff was very friendly.

Hotel was perfect for a quiet night and excellent service.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I needed to book two nights in South Bend to attend a trial. I wanted something quiet and peaceful. My room was exactly as I expected: great bed (Queen) no noise, not even when other travelors opened or closed their doors. And, the best part is that I was there on a Nortre Dame homegame weekend! Hotel was booked, but you would never know that unless you ventured ourside your room.

My co-worker and I picked this hotel based on reputation and previous experience. It was clean. Easy to get to. We had a great view of the river. We thought we got a great room and a good deal.
