Get the best of both worlds during your next Northern Indiana getaway when you stay at The Oliver Inn. Our bed and breakfast is the best place to stay in South Bend, Indiana. It’s easy to explore nearby attractions like the University of Notre Dame, or simply relax and enjoy the company of your travel companions at the Inn. 

Why The Oliver Inn Is the Best Place to Stay in South Bend, Indiana

Proximity to Popular Attractions

Our Inn is a great place to stay if you plan to visit the University of Notre Dame. Whether it’s a visit to the university for parents’ weekend or a Notre Dame football weekend, it’s easy to access campus (and Fighting Irish spirit!) from the Inn. Notre Dame Stadium is 3.5 miles from the Oliver Inn, which is close enough to easily commute to campus while still being far enough away to enjoy a quiet night at the Inn. During football season, many of our guests take advantage of local rideshare services and shuttles, or drive to park in designated gameday parking lots. 

One of our area’s biggest attractions in the offseason is downtown South Bend. Chalked full of first-class bars, restaurants, and entertainment, there’s always something to do in and around Main Street! We recommend dinner and a show at the Morris Performing Arts Center for the ultimate night on the town in South Bend. 

Comfortable Accommodations

When you’re here, you’re family. Too often, hotels purchase the most inexpensive options when it comes to mattresses, linens, and other products that impact your comfort. We want all of our guests to feel like they’re staying at a relative’s home! 

That’s why all of our accommodations feature top-of-the-line mattresses and sheets for optimal comfort, as well as charming decor that you simply can’t find at commercial lodging options! During your stay, enjoy convenient amenities like free high-speed WiFi, ambient sound machines, comfortable robes, luxury bath products, and more.

Custom Enhancements 

What occasion brings you to South Bend? Whether it’s a romantic getaway or class reunion at the University of Notre Dame, we offer specials and packages to take your trip to the next level! 

One of the most popular enhancements among guests is the LaSalle Grill Dinner Package. This package includes one night’s stay in a queen suite with a jetted tub and a gift certificate toward dinner at LaSalle Grill, which is one of our favorite South Bend restaurants. Add a second night to your reservation Monday through Thursday and enjoy 20 percent off of the additional night’s stay! Certain restrictions apply.
