This is a great hotel to stay at when visiting Shipshewana Indiana. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean. The price is not to bad since you get a free breakfast buffet served promptly. The hotel has a nice pool area that is open late for their guests to enjoy. I will defiantly... More

Beautifully decorated, friendly staff, very clean, nice breakfast with several selections of hot and cold foods, comfortable beds. Close to shopping...be sure to check out the shops behind the Blue Gate Restaurant and Playhouse.

We like this hotel when we stay in this Amish area. The rooms are very clean and the staff is wonderful. The breakfast is more than enough with a variety of items to choose from. We always enjoy our stay here.

We just stayed for the 9th time at the Van Buren Hotel in Shipshewana, Indiana. It is a lovely property, very quiet and very clean. The breakfast every morning included in hotel stay is very good with a great assortment. My only request would be for some fresh fruit. All the employees are friendly and ready to assist in any...

As many others have stated the only thing average is the breakfast. Everything else is above average with nice and friendly staff, clean quite rooms and comfortable beds. They are a little on the soft side but that's they way I like them. Pool was very clean and everything in general was perfect! I would stay here again!

I'll be the first to admit I'm a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to renting hotel rooms . . .give me a clean room, comfy bed and I'm happy. But occasionally I'll splurge and though some might not think $100+ a night is a splurge, for me it is. Though it is a quick few minutes out of... More

Stayed here to visit Shipshewana. Clean and right in Shipshewana. The breakfast was OK, but nothing special as you would expect real Amish pastries here. The food was typical hotel type with bad orange juice, the machine needs adjusting. The staff was friendly and helpful.

My party of 4 stayed at the Van Buren Hotel last week (2 rooms). Everything was great with the stay except for the free breakfast. In the past 14 years when we've stayed there they had fresh fruit (bananas, apples, etc). They also had small yogurt cups. Many days all I feel like is a yogurt or banana. Apparently that... More

We stayed one night on May 17, 2014. We paid $122.08 which included tax. The price was high in my opinion but there are limited hotel choices in this small town. The hotel is very clean and well decorated. Our room was beautiful as well as being spotless. They offer a free breakfast which includes the usual items including waffles.... More
