I have lived at the mar main for several years. I enjoy that it's close to downtown & just a short distance to notre dame. Don't get me wrong everywhere has issues however the staff does try their best to fix… Full Review ▶

I lived at The Marmain apartments for 7 years. I recently got married, moved out and bought a home. If I hadn't lived there as long as I did with the affordable rent and the utilities included I would not have… Full Review ▶

Pros: - This place is old and has a lot of charm. If you personalize your apartment, you can really make it feel like home. - While some people may look off or creepy, the tenants don't create problems or drama… Full Review ▶

The office staff is abysmal. The on-site property manager is certifiably crazy. The property is falling apart (the roof blew off the building, for example). Their maintenance staff is beyond overworked since the whole building is collapsing. You won't see a… Full Review ▶

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! I have lived at the Mar-Main Apartments for several years, and can not imagine another location that would be as convenient to downtown South Bend, and to other places of interest, as this one is. My budget doesn't… Full Review ▶

I don't know how there are this many positive reviews about the Marmain. Yes, it is a charming old building, but here are the reasons I am glad I left: -Maintenance is a crapshoot. If your problem is easy, they might… Full Review ▶

I have lived at the MarMain Arms Apartments twice: from 1983-1991 and again since 2012. I consider it the finest apartment complex in South Bend, by virtue of its location (just north of the central business district downtown), the quality of… Full Review ▶

I really did have to laugh out loud when I read on the MarMain website that they are within walking distance of Notre Dame. If you want to walk about 3 miles through some of the worst neighborhoods in South Bend.… Full Review ▶

Here was my experience at Mar Main: I moved in to a studio apartment in October 2007 and at first, Mar Main was a dream for me. Most of the residents in the building were older folks who had lived there… Full Review ▶

There never is heat in the apartments. If you call about it the office people will say either - they will put you on the list (the sucker list), or no one else has complained about no heat. When I said… Full Review ▶

This apartment is affordable and you cannot hear other tenants however, the building is a smoke pit. People chain smoke in the hallways as well as in their apartments and my apartment was one big cloud of smoke. I left my… Full Review ▶

Overall we have liked living here. After one or two years, the different problems that arise from the old building are not that bad, but six years may be pushing it.

Pros:
-Can barely hear other tenants (including from apt above) through… Full Review ▶

Mar-Main has a lot of charm. The building is more than 80 years old but is in surprisingly good shape, and although some of the fixtures are older they look nice and maintenance is very quick to respond to problems. There's… Full Review ▶
