My sister and I stayed at the Van Buren and were not disappointed. The room had 2 queen beds, was very clean and fresh smelling. The bathroom was also bigger than expected. Our room had a refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, iron, etc. The breakfast was tasty and filling. It was a nice place to return to after a day of... More

We stayed two nights. The room, lobby and surrounding area were spotless. The buffet breakfast included was very good. The TV was a little on the small side but the air conditioner worked great and the beds were soft but comfortable. The pool area was clean with a patio with picnic table which we took advantage of. Overall, a very... More

Very nice hotel. Clean and comfortable room. This hotel had a very nice staff that was very helpful. Good breakfast with lots of choices. Just a little north so you have to drive back to town but plenty of parking downtown so doesn't matter that it is out of town.

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

A great hotel property with a excellent location, in the heart of a beautiful Amish community and countryside. The staff greeted us warmly, the room was very comfortable, spacious, and clean, with a newly updated bathroom. We asked for an upper floor room and the accommodations were made as requested. The breakfast provided was standard hotel fare, BUT prepared very... More

We have stayed at the Van Buren several times and have found it always comfortable. The buffet breakfast is ample and the staff is always personable. This visit we did run into one problem. 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
