“Clean, polite staff but walls are paper thin”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Hotel was clean and comfortable, check in staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast included hot waffles, cereals, oatmeal, toast, two juice options and apples. Walls of hotel rooms are paper thin, and any little noise from the neighboring room will be heard loud and clear in the room on either side. Up until 1:30a listening to noisy room next to ours, however when I complained to front desk via phone; issue was addressed quickly.

when I arrived at the hotel, they had a room already reserved for me and waiting the staff was kind and knowing that I am not from that area was always helpful with suggestions on places to eat and different things needed when living on the road as I do. you could not ask for any more kind or professional ladies than Best Western has at this location

We go to Howe, Ind. every year for an Amish Expo. We always stay at this Best Western for location, value and overall experience. The Staff is wonderful, and we always feel welcome. The breakfast is just so so, but not much worse then any other continental breakfast.

The hotel was clean. Looked new. Rooms were comfortable, nice bed and pillows. Couch bed was not in an area that could view the television though. Breakfast was just OK. Minimal selection of foods. Staff was friendly as well.

When visiting Shipshewana, Indiana, accommodations were unavailable, therefore, we traveled to Sturgis, Michigan, for the night. The room was clean, however, you could see "dust" where the wall meets the floor! The shower was exceptional, but the water was "hard." The morning breakfast was of good hot and cold varieties with even the offering of French Toast.

Room Tip: Entrance to the hotel, off of the highway, was confusing and difficult to find... especially at nigh...

This hotel is a great place to spend the night if you are traveling across the northern US. It is comfortable, extremely clean and has a caring staff. The rooms seemed to be more spacious than at comparable hotels. The indoor pool area was very nice and provides a respite from a long day of travel.

Nice staff. Currently upgrading amenities so some of the rooms were not available. They upgraded me to a King Jacuzzi suite. Breakfast is decent. Some hot food. Quiet place to stay. Convenient location for Shipshewana and Sturgis hospital right off of the Indiana Turnpike.
