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...

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...

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...
