Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EGRguy Great Location, if only I could have slept.
I've stayed at a few Holiday Inn Express properties, and this one was mostly like the rest: The breakfast was outstanding, the staff accommodating and the location accessible. What disappointed me was the king sized bed's support. It felt like a thin piece of foam on a cardboard box.
I only stayed one night, and didn't realize "putting up with it" for one night would make me sore for days afterwards. I honestly think the floor or bathtub would have been better options. Also the pillows were the size of throw pillows, with their terms of "soft" and "firm" subjective if not downright falsehoods.
I will not be staying at the HIE in South Bend during my next trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MidwestTour Enormous Suite for Family of Six
We have four young boys so it is often difficult to find motels with one room large enough to accommodate us. This one had a suite available and what made it especially nice is that there were two distinct bedrooms in addition to the pull out couch in the living area so we could have some privacy. The bed are incredibly comfortable and there were TVs in every room. The boys enjoyed the 24 hr oatmeal and tea/coffee/hot chocolate service in the lobby after being on the road for 6 hours. The breakfast is filling and there are healthier choices available like yogurt and hard boiled eggs. We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend so the hotel was quiet which may be unusual with the universities so close by. It was close to the Interstate making for easy on/off for our long road trip.
The couch cushions sagged a bit and the chairs surrounding the table were too big for the space but otherwise everything was pleasant and comfortable.

I've been to HIE in other cities and having tried them before wasn't disappointed with the quality of my stay. Breakfast was a bit lack luster but edible. Rooms were nicely appointed as usual.
