“July 4th trip”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is a great hotel to stay at when visiting Shipshewana Indiana. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean. The price is not to bad since you get a free breakfast buffet served promptly. The hotel has a nice pool area that is open late for their guests to enjoy. I will defiantly being staying there again in the future.

Beautifully decorated, friendly staff, very clean, nice breakfast with several selections of hot and cold foods, comfortable beds. Close to shopping...be sure to check out the shops behind the Blue Gate Restaurant and Playhouse.

Room Tip: King on 1st floor corner

We like this hotel when we stay in this Amish area. The rooms are very clean and the staff is wonderful. The breakfast is more than enough with a variety of items to choose from. We always enjoy our stay here.

We just stayed for the 9th time at the Van Buren Hotel in Shipshewana, Indiana. It is a lovely property, very quiet and very clean. The breakfast every morning included in hotel stay is very good with a great assortment. My only request would be for some fresh fruit. All the employees are friendly and ready to assist in any request. The lady that cleaned out room left a note each day wishing us a good day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to spend time in Amish Country.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are very quiet.

As many others have stated the only thing average is the breakfast. Everything else is above average with nice and friendly staff, clean quite rooms and comfortable beds. They are a little on the soft side but that's they way I like them. Pool was very clean and everything in general was perfect! I would stay here again!

Room Tip: The elevator is in the center part of the building. Those who may have mobility issues may want to...

I'll be the first to admit I'm a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to renting hotel rooms . . .give me a clean room, comfy bed and I'm happy. But occasionally I'll splurge and though some might not think $100+ a night is a splurge, for me it is. Though it is a quick few minutes out of town, the quiet at night was heavenly and worth the short drive. The bedding was fresh and crisp, mattress comfy, room spotless, bathroom roomy, nice TV, hallways and building well maintained--I can't think of a single negative thing to report on this stay. The complimentary breakfast was by far one of the best I have had--the breakfast attendant was continually refilling and cleaning up. The room was large and had lots of tables. I noted that one reviewer mentioned that there was no fresh fruit or yogurt. While that is true, there were plenty of other options from scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, breads, bagels, pastries etc. and it all tasted fresh. Guess you can't please everyone. We drive through this area regularly on our way to visit family and often stop in Shipshewana to shop and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and recommend it to others. Good job Van Buren staff!! We will be back!
