The hotel was very nice. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The amenities in the room are miniature and will accommodate one person but I am sure you could ask for more shampoo and lotion if needed. The beds are soft and the pillows are alternate down. Very nice. The towels are a bit... More

The breakfast provided was standard hotel fare, BUT prepared very... More

We had very little water pressure and the water had a slight offensive odor. First time! Other than that, it is always a favorite of ours.... More

We had a very comfortable 2 night stay at the Van Buren Hotel. Staff was very helpful in us finding a place to eat at such a late hour which is hard to find when staying in Shipshewana. We loved sitting out on one of the many patios drinking wine and watching the sunset. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean.... More
