This hotel was quiet and clean. The staff was very helpful and respectful. The breakfast was great, kept us full for a long time. They serve eggs, sausage, potatoes, cereal, juice, Belgium waffles, bagels, toast and more. There were also fresh cookies at the front counter. The pool was fine. You can sit outside off the pool in a peaceful... More

The front desk attendants were very friendly and attentive. The room was clean, bedding was soft, 3 pillows on the bed. Shower pressure was low the first night but did improve the next few nights. Service attendants were friendly and respectful. Breakfast was ok but a slow process. Loved sitting outside on the porch watching the horse and buggies go... More

Motel was clean, people were friendly, and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was a nightmare as all hot food was grouped together and that is where the crowd congregated to get their breakfast. Service to refill empty food servers were slow. All in all, the place was good. I would stay here again.

This is my third stay here and it never disappoints. Clean friendly and good breakfast. Will be back AGAIN!!!! Its close to everything yet far enough away for a peaceful nights rest. The pool is always clean and refreshing after a long day of walking at the flea market.!

We were only there one night but it was nice, clean and quiet. I wish the breakfast had been better but overall good place to stay. Free internet, too. Farther away from town but still an easy access.

Hotel located on north side of small community with excellent view of rural area. Very peaceful and relaxing, and offered a restful setting away from home. Free breakfast was plentiful and well laid out. Staff assured that dining area offerings were promptly replentished and tables were kept clean and organized.

Our room was clean but we woke up in the middle of the night to a strong smoky smell coming out of our a/c. We couldn't change rooms as they were booked solid. We unplugged the a/c and slept with the windows open. Operations manager was short with us and said the a/c was out of her control. She only... More

VanBuren7780, Guest Relations Manager at The Van Buren Hotel at Shipshewana, responded to this review

We do apologize for the inconvenience during your stay here at The Van Buren Hotel in Shipshewana. Upon calling the front desk and stating you had a “smoky smell” in your room, our front desk attendant immediately came down to your room, inspected the unit and unplugged it for you. She then explained we were indeed booked solid and therefore,... More

The hotel is perfectly located just a hop, skip, and a jump from right down town. From outside our window facing the south our view was a cute little pond. We could also see the local Amish passing by in their cute horse drawn buggies. The staff was more than pleasant!! We were greeted at check in by a very... More

This hotel was friendly, clean, well appointed and reasonably priced. The staff was helpful and works continually for the visitors. The rooms are clean with nice décor and a large bathroom. Breakfast was good and the area very clean. The hotel grounds are well kept. The location was convenient to various venues. A disappointment in the area was the inability... More

This was one of the cleanist hotels I have stayed at in a long time. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. The price was much more reasonable than others in the area. Convenient location to everything.
