This motel is the best near Shipshewana. Over the years we have tried a few but we have stayed here for the last 9 or 10 years. There is not one bad thing I can say. The people who work there are always over and above what you'd expect. The breakfast is great.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus in Howe for two nights for a school reunion. They were very helpful in reserving a block of rooms at a great price. The rooms were very nice, clean, with the best sleeping beds in a motel I've ever had.

Arrived at this location for an overnight over Labor Day after visiting Shipshewana, Indiana. This was a great location if you want to escape the crowd and noise that visit Shipshewana Amish area. Although this location was built in 2003 they have new updates since we visited last in the spring of 2010. The carpeting seems newer and the rooms... More

Tucked back next to a motel, off I-80/90 @Sturgis/Howe, this seemingly new hotel sits. Odd having to weave through a neighboring motel's parking lot to arrive there, but a clean, quiet room awaits. And that's really all that matters for us. A very generous breakfast was offereded. Although we don't use the pool when we travel, a lot of people... More

The Best Western Plus in Howe, IN, right across the border from Sturgis MI is a decent place for an overnight stay. I think it might be a bit overpriced, but we only had the option of a suite, which included a hot tub, separate from the bathroom, in the same area with the bed, desk, etc. The room included...

Comfortable and clean beds. Great easy chair to lounge. Large, clean bathroom. Pleasant staff. Fresh food at breakfast. Entrance to the hotel and its parking lot can easily be missed as it is shared with a motor lodge.

The hotel was clean, comfortable and staff very nice. Great place to stay if going to the Flea Market/auction in Shipshewana, IN (about 10 miles or less from flea mkt). Limited places to eat in Shipshewana but many more options close to the hotel.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did not think this was a five-star experience. It was a very good experience, just not five star. The front desk clerk was terrific. We arrived late and she had a line ahead of us but was fairly quick. The front desk area was small but clean. This is a modest hotel. The... More

Our loved one is in a nursing care facility in a nearby community. We live in California and have chosen BW because it gives us an opportunity to be able to relax, get a good night's rest and choices for meals nearby. All this within 5 miles of the nursing home. Very conveniently located and great staff!
