    Not highly rated

    platinumelite

    Travel quite often, mainly for work.. This stay was a last-minute getaway with my husband. The hotel was completely full to the point that no parking was available on the hotel grounds. There are no ice machines located in this hotel and the ice machine in the in-room freezer did not function. Entered the room to find a note attached to the thermostat saying "Do not adjust the thermostat". There were kids running up and down the halls until all hours of the night. The mattress was covered in a plastic fitted sheet-type thing, so any part of your body that touched it became ridiculously hot.. One of the only times I can recall that I was NOT greeted as a Priority Club member at check-in, nor offered a choice of welcome points. The only reason I gave this a 4/5 value rating is based on the fact that I used rewards points for this stay.

    Hotel is Nice, Staff Needs to Try Harder

    By

    July 19, 2016

    The hotel facility was as expected for a Staybridge, consistent, with everything that you would expect.

    When I checked in, I was given a room that had one wall against the elevator. I knew that this would be too noisy for me and the front desk happily changed my room to one further from the elevator with one phone call.

    The first thing that I noticed in my new room was that one of the ceiling lights in the kitchen area did not work. As I turned on lights in the room to brighten it up, I found that the floor lamp did not work either. I like it bright in my room so this was a disappointment. The ceiling lamp was controlled by a switch next to the door and is one that you would automatically turn on when entering the room.

    When I went to prep the coffee maker for morning, I found that the kitchen sink was very slow to drain, even when I turned on the garbage disposal.

    Outside under the gazebo, the pavers were sticky from spilled beverages and of course all the dirt stuck to that. Although the staff seemed to clean up the trash left by guests every day, nothing was done to the sticky floor or the big pile of grease / cooking debris that was under the grill. The area was pretty nasty. A few inches off the sidewalk coming from the rear parking lot to the dining area, there were two piles of dog poop that remained for the three nights I stayed here. Same on the pet owner for not cleaning up after their pet but I would think that the hotel staff would have addressed it.

    When I showered, I noticed that my feet would always track in a lot of dirt and dust balls that I picked up from just a few steps from the foot of the bed to the shower. When the water washed over my feet, you could see everything that stuck to them from the carpet as it rinsed down the drain. On the far side of the bed by the air conditioner, it looked like it was seldom ever vacuumed, the dirt was very visible and there was even some loose change on the floor there.

    I found the issues disappointing but tolerable enough to not call the front desk. I travel all the time and I find it very inconvenient to work hotel maintenance into the schedule. By the time I check in, I just want to get to bed and not wait for a sink to be unplugged and bulbs to be replaced. All of these things should have been caught by housekeeping.

    Breakfast on Thursday was good with cheese omelets but Friday’s scrambled eggs were overcooked and not so good.

    I guess I might consider staring here next week when I return for work but I will be looking into other properties first. I was not offered a room upgrade as a Spire member.

    Could Be Great

    The hotel is nice and in a good location for Notre Dame. The breakfast everyday was outstanding along with the pool. The room was nice except for the issues that should have been addressed before we were in the room. The shower would not drain, the sheets on the pull out bed were dirty along with no pillows. On top of that there was only one worker so it took forever to get assistance because she was busy. The hotel itself though is very nice and with a few changes could be one of the best in South Bend.
