Great spot! Micah was incredibly accommodating--I needed tickets sent to the address prior to my arrival, and Micah made it happen. Highly recommend!

On my return trip home, I was ever so grateful I had booked this room again at Don's. It is clean and comfortable. Parking is easy, access is easy, and the place is very interesting with posters, pictures, and paraphernalia. I'd definitely recommend it!

A very interesting place to stay! Every place you look there is something interesting! I very much enjoyed corresponding with Micah, who is a wealth of information. He set me on the right path to dinner, and a great stroll through an old South Bend neighborhood. Loved the soft and cushy towels in the bathroom and the stand-up fan! Thank you for a great night's sleep and am looking forward to staying here again on my return trip.
