We love staying at the Blue Gate Garden Inn. The staff is friendly and efficient. The room was clean, and the young women making omelettes was very good at her job! We love the ice cream parlor and the outside fire pit! This has been a wonderful new direction for this hotel!

Enjoyed the Tanya Tucker show. Should have been longer for the price of the tickets. People at a Event Center very nice. Hotel was wonderful. One of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. Very clean. Ice cream parlor was a fun place to go after the show. We will return!

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Gate Garden Inn for the first time very recently. We were favorably impressed. The room was spacious, not huge, but right for us. We used the pool and exercise room. The exercise room had more machines than I expected. It was quite good. The first time we used the pool, there were... More

We enjoyed everything about being here. The building is clean, well decorated, spacious and easy to get around. The staff is by far the friendliest you will find anywhere. Then there is the breakfast buffet (complimentary) that is amazing. It is all tended to and kept fresh. We had a chef prepared omelet that would best any restaurant. Best part... More

My husband surprised me with tickets to see Air Supply at the Shipshewana Event Center on January 30. From the time we checked into the hotel until we left February 1st the staff was very accommodating. The housekeeping was excellent, the breakfast buffet was delicious, and the front desk personnel were very friendly. We will definitely return again.

We stayed overnight to attend a concert next door at the Shipshewana Event Center. The room had two separate bedrooms, so it was perfect for sleeping. The bedding, pillows and mattresses were perfect. The property was very quiet. This is the place to stay, if you are... More
