We have been traveling to a few colleges for Daughter this fall. She participates in an over night stay and attends a class on campus. Most of the time someone travels with me but this visit was a Sunday night so I was traveling by myself. Since it was going to be a quiet night of cable tv and magazines I splurged on a whirlpool room for this stay for $20 more than a king room.
Upon arriving to the most empty hotel I was told by the front desk that I had been upgraded. What is an upgrade on a whirlpool room? The presidential suite.
Me, myself and I enjoying a bathroom bigger than my bedroom at home.
The large whirlpool tub was in the bathroom. I also had two sinks, a large counter top, large shower and the toilet was in a small separate closed area.
On the way to pick up some Steak and Shake I called Husband to report on the room upgrade. It was amusing to me that I had this great upgrade and no one to enjoy it with.
Just inside the entry was a mini fridge, wet bar area and a microwave.
Then a large living room with a couch, coffee table, chairs and a desk.
The coffee table made an impromptu dining area while I enjoyed my garlic sliders and cable tv. I love their shakes and I had a decent coupon for my meal but I still felt a little silly carrying the bag of burgers into the suite. It did not take me long to remember why we do not have cable tv, hundreds of channels and nothing to watch.
The large bedroom housed a king bed and second tv through the door on the side of the living room. I heard no noise as I slept in the huge king bed even though I faced the street.
As you can imagine I had an excellent stay at the Mishawaka Country Inn and Suites. The whirlpool tub was very comfortable while I caught up on some of my travel magazines. The tile surround held my strawberry shake as I relaxed in the hot water after my dinner. Relaxation and quiet!
This hotel is in a great area for shopping and dining. The hotel is about five miles from Notre Dame University and half a mile from the University mall. They have a small pool and ample free breakfast in the morning.
The rate for a whirlpool room is $116 a night plus tax, you can have the Presidential Suite for $134. For the extra $18 I would book the suite for space even if you are traveling with a family.
