Jeffersonville, Indiana
Reviewed 8 September 2016

Spacious, well maintained room. Full kitchen. Beds were comfortable. Convenient to Notre Dame and most places you would want to go in South Bend. Housekeeping was a little spotty but nothing that would be a deal breaker. Nice outdoor pool, Rec room with pool table. Good free hot/cold breakfast in the AM.

My wife and I intended to enjoy a weekend in South Bend with a stay at the Residence Inn, expecting a quality facility and great breakfast. Unfortunately, we were greatly disappointed with the non-functioning items in the facility and our room, damaged and worn out furniture and dirty dishes in the dishwasher upon arrival, shortage of silverware and cooking preparation...

This property was newly remodeled. the furniture, carpeting, flooring, fixtures - all of it new. The staff is friendly and accomodating. Not too far from campus - albeit in an out of the way area. Not a bad choice if you are looking for an out of the way place.

Where to start...... This property is more like a Section 8 Apartment complex. The scene right outside my door might as well be the front porch at a trailer park. A cooler, ashtray, couple camp chairs. I walk out in the morning and the occupants are out smoking. Thought there was a law in IN about this but maybe not...

Unlike any Residence Inn we've stayed in, this one is made up of separate buildings around a central core that contains a pool, play area, and basketball court. The room--a studio--was ingeniously designed and very comfortable--a spacious and even elegant kitchen, a small but serviceable bath, and a living area that exceeded that of most suites. Even the sofa bed...

Rooms are the old fashioned Residence Inn's that is to say the hotel is old. It is separate building pods and rooms are either on the ground floor or stairs to second floor. Some rooms have fire places. We had to park on a hill, making it difficult to get in and out of the car with baggage. We then...

I was very disappointed with the cleanliness of the facility. As a platinum member of Marriott I expect much more. There were spider webs and mold all around the exterior facades of the buildings. Including an exorbitant amount of dead leaves, which had definitely been there all year long (I stayed in August when all the leaves on the trees...

I travel on business regularly with Marriott and enjoy the space and relaxed atmosphere of Residence Inn properties. This property did not disappoint with generous evening cook outs and salad bar. Some updates planned including new outdoor seating area.

The rooms were nice but the service I received daily was terrible if I straightened my bedding in the morning it would not get made. The room was not clean to hotel standards my first night. I have stayed 93 nights and Marriotts this year and it was the worst I have ever been in.
