The stay was delightful. The hotel had everything we needed except a pool. That was under construction and won’t open for several more weeks. The included breakfast was amazing. It was like a Holiday Inn Express on steroids. Omelets made to order, biscuits and gravy, sausage, waffles with blueberry or strawberry toppings. Cold cereal, baked oatmeal, fruit, toast, juices, coffee,... More

This is the fourth time I have stayed at the Blue Gate Garden Inn in the past year. My girlfriend was in two of the shows at the Blue Gate Theater and every time I would come visit her, I would stay at the Blue Gate Garden Inn. It's a beautiful building and is kept cleaner than most hotels. The... More

We stayed two nights (7/2/14 and 7/3/14) and did the dinner/play/carriage ride/bakery basket package. It was one of the most enjoyable times we have ever had. The included breakfast was really good. Our room had plenty of room, a king size bed and a refrigerator that kept our water/pop ice cold, which is unusual for hotel refrigerators.. We will be... More

The hotel is a great location! Very clean and the included breakfast was great as well, so many wonderful things close by... More

The associates working at this motel are very friendly. In addition they provide a very nice breakfast in which they will make omelets as you wait. You can also have waffles or a variety of fresh baked breads with your favorite spread. The new Pool and Whirlpool area is under construction and will not be finished till the fall of... More

We stayed at the Blue Garden Inn, Shipshewana Indiana over the 4th of July weekend and were very happy with the hotel. The room was nicely decorated with the Amish "blue" and the bedspreads were beautiful quits. The room was larger than your normal room and was very clean. The free breakfast was better than most and there was a... More

Nothing to complain about. Convenient, well situated, good parking and friendly front desk staff. The room was spot on, no surprises, no disappointments. Breakfast is included and since the hotel is run by the same folks who own the best restaurant in town, it was as good as I hoped it would be. Buffet style with all the usual fare.... More

We stayed at the Blue Gate June 24th and 25th in a 2-queen room. Small but clean and comfortable; it had all we need. A really nice breakfast is included and there is a lot of variety. There is an ice cream shop 5-10pm with quality ice cream and a bistro feel. Coffee and hot tea are available in the... More
