This motel is a nice value. Breakfast is included in the price and a bonus is that if you have a small dog/pet, for $10.00 extra per night, they can stay as well. The rooms are outdated, but clean and they do not have King beds, only Queen size. Would recommend.

The room was very clean and the decor and furniture was really great. It is in a great position for exploring the area. We were unlucky to have a loud snorer in the next room so didn't sleep well. Also breakfast could have been a little better according to other reviews. There was only cereal and toast ,with a few... More

We initially looked at Der Ruhe Blatz based on the price and then we looked at other reviews. We were surprised to see that this hotel gets such good reviews for being so cheap. We booked the room and we were happy to see that it was as good as everyone else says it is. Just know that if you... More

We've stayed at this motel several times and have never had a bad experience. The rooms are filled with beautiful Amish made furniture. The beds are exceptionally comfortable. We like that you can park in front of your room. There's an ample comp b'fast served in their lobby area. Seating is limited to 12-14 but we had no problems finding... More
