"Better options are available"
Booked this (non-refundable) on hotels.com as room pics looked nice and appeared to be a very good deal. Come to find out those that knew better than I had packed the other hotels in the area while nobody was at the Waterford. TV and countertops were brand new in our room - nice! But the carpeting was bad - bedding had a hole ripped in the sheet. The hallway carpeting appeared to be "original" from the 1960s. The bathroom fan was also caked with blank gunk in the ceiling. Breakfast was free - but that's all I can say about it - not very good at all - even the coffee was watery. Staff was very nice and it appears they are trying to upgrade this place - maybe it will be good by next year but I just can't recommend this place with all the other new places right in the same area.

"our room needed updating"
Service is good here with hotel and restaurant staff. Food is very decent. Mattress seemed very old and was uncomfortable. A/c had unique occilating noise about once every two minutes, enough to wake us up throughout the night. Horrible night sleep. Shower was very old and needed to be updated. Came with continental breakfast that was very nice.

"Great place to stay"
We were in town for a funeral. They let us have a late check out because the funeral was at 11 am. CLEAN rooms. Comfortable beds. Sunday brunch had more food than Monday but was still plenty. Great coffee, A+++. Friendly staff. Easy access to I-80/I-90. Close to lots of resturants. WiFi was fast enough for my emails and Facebook. We are retired Air Force and have stayed in many hotels. This is top on our list.

"Staff was friendly and professional, but..."
Staff was friendly and professional. Parking was easy. Kitchenette was very nice. But the Waterford Estates Lodge is basically a deteriorating, rambling motel that has been partially enclosed. Pools were cold, murky, and very green. Breakfast was barely edible (we chose not to eat the free breakfast 2 of 3 days of our stay because it was that bad). Air condition unit was loud and bathrooms were in bad need or updating.

"Worth a return trip!"
I booked online with a "pay at check-in" option. Because of that, I was expecting a less-than-charming hotel with few amenities (even though it says wi-fi and breakfast are available, that doesn't mean you'll get them!) but what I found was a hidden gem! The room was clean and spacious; with tons of cabinets and drawers! The staff was friendly and helpful. Even though the hotel seemed full, it wasn't noisy, despite being only a short distance from Notre Dame (and the other colleges) because you have to sign a Noise Clause. Brilliant!

We were in town for a wedding at Notre Dame . We had a 5 hour wait between the ceremony and the reception. We were able to relax pool side or take a nap in our room for a while at 3:00, although the option of an early check in would have been ideal. Hotel staff was friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

"So-so hotel...just stay out of bar."
the hotel was older and not well maintained (wasn't bad just appeared understaffed in maint.). went to bar and ordered a shot of Makers Mark whiskey and it was mostly water and almost no whiskey...I ordered it straight and didn't need a chaser...for $8.00, my fiance's vodka and cranberry was also mostly water and very little vodka. Complimentary breakfast was very good, hotel accepts pets but doesn't seem to enforce barking rules after 10:00pm was kept up both nights by yapping dogs down hall. price was good but I probably will pay more for closer hotel to my destination next time.

"A value room at a value price"
Our trip to South Bend was a quick get out of the city type trip so when looking for a hotel we were more concerned with cost than overall quality. The Waterford is run down, but it appears that they are updating or fixing up quite a few rooms. Our room was good sized, had a comfortable bed, and clean sheets. It also had serious signs of water damage to the walls, soda bottle lids from a previous guest, and an odd neighbor who kept his room door ajar. For the price we paid and what we were looking for the Waterford Estates hit the mark. For extended stays or trips where you might spend more time in the room I would look elsewhere.

"Great family place"
I would have given a five down the list, but there were two issues that made a difference to our stay. My room had two beds and one of them felt like you could sink into it and could not sleep comfortably. Must of had been very old. The other bed was great so we took turns with the kids sharing the good bed. Great staff, nearby dining and restaurants, two swimming pools, free contintal buffet. The kids loved it. The other issue we had was that the inside pool was salty and had too much chlorine. My eyes hurt for a full day after swimming in it. The out side pool was changed during our stay and that one was lots of fun.

The room was large enough, clean, staff were friendly and helpful, gave us a discount because we couldn't take a shower, the hot water handle broke off about 11:00 pm. In the morning we told them and got the discount. It's clean, and price is right.

"Nice room, but not great amenities"
The room was very nice, and the clerk was gracious and let me check in early. It was disappointing that the hot tub was broken. Not only did my companion and I miss the opportunity to enjoy it, but it also gave the hotel a seedy feel. The pool hours were quite limiting, considering check-in/check-out times, so I didn't get to use either pool. Since there's no lifeguard on duty, I don't understand why they aren't available in the mornings or past 10 p.m. The lobby was decent, and the pub area where breakfast is held was nice. However, the parking lot in the back where I parked was dirty and felt like an alley. My other complaint is the breakfast. There were very limited options for anyone with food restrictions like me (no gluten). At least you had yogurt, and a few pieces of fruit (not anything that could be added to the yogurt, though--only apples and oranges). The coffee was worse than instant and basically flavorless. Overall, though, it served my needs and the bed was very comfortable. It was nice to have a refrigerator in the room, too. We had no idea how to use the fancy sound system, but would have investigated it if there were more time. Nice place for $100 + tax.

The room was average, but very quiet, which I liked, but the overall hotel was very tired and run down looking it could really benefit from a face lift of some kind. In addition, the hotel staff, while professional and efficient were not really friendly at all.

They are currently going through some renovations but the facilities are still well kept. Theresa who works at the front desk and the one night at the in house restaurant was very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good. Mostly a bar menu, and some good sandwiches. The breakfast is a continental breakfast with hard boiled eggs bagels and such. I would stay there again.

Great place just up from the University of Notre Dame. With some small upgrades this would be an even better hotel. Hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. Beds were super comfy and as someone with a bad back that is the deal sealer for me. Overall look and feel of hotel was good. Sadly the carpet was pretty gross in our room, definitely needs to be replaced or cleaned really well. Overall the room was good & quiet. Fit our needs for a one night stay. Would recommend & would stay here again.

"Nice rooms, quiet location"
Hotel exterior was a little dated but our room was pleasant and in good working order. First day a screw holding the toilet seat broke, it was fixed by the time we returned from dinner. On our last night they had a main water line break. It was fixed in about 2 hours with only minor inconvenience to us, they were prepared to give us another room but it was fixed before we even thought about moving. I don't think there is an elevator, so if you have trouble with stairs or have extra luggage request a first floor room.

"Pretty disappointing stay !"
Our room was good but they put us on the 2nd floor & there is no elevator & we had a lot of luggage & clothes to carry up. Then, our room was the very last room as far as you could go ! ! They did offer us a rm on the 1st floor but we would of had to take it all back down & all of those stairs ! We always look forward to getting in the hot tub & of course it was broke down & the pool outside didn't even have any water in it ! The breakfast was so so. All in all we would never stay here again. The biggest complaint is that when I made the reservation 7 wks b4 we even arrived, they put it right on our credit card ! ! Not very cool !

The hotel does a hold on your credit card in the amount of your whole stay (3 days) plus $50 over for a deposit. They will not take cash, you have to use your card. I learned the hard way.

"Nice enough, but need new mattresses"
We stayed here during the off season-school was not in session-so there was nobody there. It was very strange. There wasn't much available-restaurant was closed, hot tub was drained and no ice in the ice machine. Still, the room was clean and lovely, but the mattress was old and created a crevasse in the middle. They really need to replace the mattresses. The Bose sound system in the room was a big plus.
