This is a great choice when visiting Shipshewana. The hotel is very clean and tastefully decorated. The small counter with sink, refrigerator and microwave in the king room is very nice. Breakfast is included and it's great - lots of options, plenty of seating, and enough staff to offer assistance and keep everything clean. The indoor pool area was still... More

This Inn was very charming. The room was beautiful and very clean. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. If that's not enough, the breakfast is to die for. If you walk away hungry, it's your own fault. This is must try Inn.

The breakfast was very good & they even made you an omelet if you wanted one. Waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, etc. Very nice stay. Will stay... More

Nice place with clean rooms and helpful staff. The breakfast buffet suits everyone and is good. The only improvement would be to add bacon. Sausage was the only meat selection with ham only offered for omelets. Nice place too stay just remember this is in the country surrounded by farms with the expected mild outside smell of cow/horse manure but... More

Supposedly, this hotel is a newer hotel, opened earlier this year. The staff at the front desk barely answer your questions about where to find places to go in the small area of Shipshewana. The fitness room has really poor quality machines, half of which are broken. The pool was closed. The room was okay, although it was not the... More

I loved staying at the Blue Gate Inn. It is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are lovely and large. The breakfast buffet was well above average. They even had an omelet station. Had a great nights sleep. Very quiet room.

Only downfall was we were in the handicap accessible room on the first floor & the beds were so hard I felt like I slept on the floor all... More
