My family and I stayed here because I was touring the University of Notre Dame. It was nice and quiet. It is on the edge of campus, so it's location is ideal. The Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a close stay to Notre Dame.

Tracy P, Front Office Manager at Ivy Court Inn & Suites, responded to this review

Stayed mid-week during the school year. The hotel is on the edge of campus and a short walk to everywhere on campus. The hotel is split between two small buildings with three floors each. My room on the third floor was spacious and comfortable. Nice hot breakfast and free wifi.

Our second stay here for Notre Dame sporting events and it's still impresses us each time. The staff and managers are amazing, and they always go out of the way to make your stay the best it can be. The staff also makes great suggestions on where to go and what to do and see.

Overall a nice place. It is a little run down, however. Our room had a broken toilet on check in but the front desk moved us easily to a different room. Good location to Notre Dame. Staff very friendly.

We had a lovely room, and the service was fine, very helpful. The buffet was supposed to be a highlight of the area. Mostly it is an unexceptional buffet, but they do make real eggs over soft, and that was a treat in a long line of hotel scrambled eggs. Real biscuits as well.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The ladies working the breakfast area are great with making guests a different type of egg other then scrambled. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to you staying next time your in the area. More

I couldn’t ask for anything more at this hotel. I was given a friendly welcome at the front desk and the service remained friendly and helpful throughout my stay.

Thank you for all the kind words and the feedback from your visit.

Big, beautiful room with a large, good bed. The breakfast is much better than when I stayed here 15 years ago! And another good thing: You could rent a bike. The ND campus is like a big park where it is nice to bike.

THE place to stay for Notre Dame games. Close by, walking distance, but, far enough away that one can go to sleep at night. Ridiculous pricing--for game weekends--but, all the places in the area do the same thing. One of the best in the area.
