I stayed here while in the area for business. It was clean and comfortable! The large hotel was basically empty but I felt safe and secure. The employees were nice and breakfast was okay too. I would stay again!

Nice property, clean. Some rooms were being upgraded, which is ok due to it being their slow season. I'd guess there was only 3-4 rooms being used. On that note, they weren't very flexable on allowing for late check-out and wanting to close down breakfast early. My Grand daughter enjoyed the pool ( that's why we wanted a late check... More

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Convenient location. Great pillows, but bed wasn't what I am use to, not bad, just not what I am use to. Very clean beds though. Pool area was very nice and pool was clean. Wish they would have had a hot tub!!!

We loved our weekend getaway in Shipshewana. Our whirlpool suite was very clean, staff were very friendly and helpful. The hot breakfast was delicious. The local restaurants are wonderful Amish cooking. The shopping is fun for all ages. A quiet, laid back place to relax for the weekend. We can't wait to go back again!

We had a great stay at The Van Buren Hotel in Shipshewana. Our room was very spacious and very clean, which was much appreciated. Breakfast was good and plentiful, but wished there had been some fresh fruit as an option, even a banana or an apple. I would like to note, however, that the parking lot was extremely icy. My...

We have made reservations for 2015 and 2016 for room 125. We sincerely wish that we will have that room as reserved. We have had problems getting the room we reserved.
