        very nice hotel closely related to notre dame university

        We were gone all day, returning late in the evening. As such, I spent the most time in the pub having breakfast. I thought the breakfast was very good. They served real eggs. The staff was very polite and attentive to my needs. I did not have the opportunity to use the pools or the fitness room. The fitness room was well equiped. This is a good hotel for the price. Debbie at the front desk was very agreeable to change our room for us to another location closer to the front of the hotel.

        The rooms were clean. The beds were very comfortable. I did not like the dark brown stains on our carpeting.

        Reservations were quick and easy. All staff were most friendly and helpful. Room was quite comfortable, well equipped and very clean. My wife and I liked the experience so much we stayed extra days to enjoy trouble-free lodging. The food served in the dining room was nicely prepared and served and the ambiance was most inviting. We would, and have, recommended the Waterford Estates Lodge to family and friends.

        Even though our stay was only one night we really enjoyed the spacious rooms. We were thrilled to see all the luxury items in the room (fridge, microwave, television, and even a door to the back parking lot!) One of the guests in our group described the bed as "a cloud of children's laughter". I know it sounds ridiculous but the beds and pillows were so comfortable that we fell asleep immediately after laying down.

        Room was great. A good breakfast was included. Price was very good.

        Hot tub did not seem to be working. It looked pretty nasty, but shortly after seeing it, it was covered up, so must have been down for repairs.

        Nice large room, nice facilities, and a very good price.

        I read the previous reviews before booking. While there were several negative comments, overall the comments were positive. The rate was also quite good since it was not a Notre Dame home game weekend. After staying at the hotel, I am glad I booked it. We were there only one night, but the room was nicely appointed and modern. The room was clean and well kept too. It was a comfortable night's stay. The restaurant staff was very accommodating and the food was good and tasteful, although limited selection. I would definitely stay here again.

        Nothing really. If I had to pick one thing, it would be the limtied selection on the breakfast buffet. But the food was good, so it is hard to complain.

        The facility is well-maintained and clean. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. The dining area provided excellent food at a reasonable price. Overall, the Waterford Estates is a very good choice in terms of comfort, ease of access, and cost.

        The pillows are too large--need a choice for those who prefer a thinner, softer pillow--not a major issue give all of the positives.

        The proximity to Notre Dame attracted me to this hotel.

        The bathroom was not clean, had some mold issues, the ceiling was opened up near the shower head indicating there had been some water issues. The shower head was at about 5' high, making standing under it impossible. They put the bath towels out of sight, under the sink in the vanity - but they didn't tell me to look there so I took a shower and dried off with a hand towel and two washcloths. It was really expensive, considering these items.

        The breakfast was the best. Location was great - convenient to what we wanted to do. The staff were really helpful. The price was a great value.

        No ice machine available.The paint was peeling on the exterior roof soffits.
