Lodging on the Square
Ranked #6 of 11 Berlin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2010

Lodging on the square is a nice no frills place in Amish country.You can walk out your door and be right in the middle of things. But no worry of to much noise, Amish country closes at 5 PM sharp(except for the restaurants). So you want to make sure your hotel has a good TV, Or you have plenty to read. The sister hotel Zinks Inn, Is a Little more up scale, And only about 1/2Mile away, And has a nice free breakfast. I have stayed in both these hotels so often that I have gotten free night stays(stay 10 get one free) These are about the best in there price range, The people that run them could not be nicer or more helpful PS. lodging has no view-Zinks inn does- in some rooms

Greetings, I too share a love for Amish country, it's so wonderful that you shared so much information with our friends here on tripadvisor. We do have a few things open after 5pm, all of the Dutchman Hospitality property shops are open till 8pm, that includes the Carlisle Gifts of Walnut Creek as well as Dutch Valley Gifts & the Coop, Sol's in Berlin is usually open till 7pm during tourist season so you can just walk across the street to visit them. We also have had shows here in Amish Country for the last few years, the Amish Country Theater and the Ohio Star Theater. So there are plenty of things to do after 5pm now. The Farm at Walnut Creek is open till dusk during the season. Just ask and we are happy to point you in the right direction. We also love that you shared a great review of both our Lodging on the Square location as well as our Zinck's Inn location. We love to see such great feedback. Thank you again, have a wonderful year and we hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here with my small grandchildren. Could not let them down on the carpet without their shoes on. That carpet should have been cleaned before anyone stayed in that room. Tried to get a cleaner room but was informed they were all booked up and nothing else available. No choice but to stay the night in that mess or drive over a 100 miles back home. I felt sorry for the young girl that had to listen to my complaints because I could tell she was used to hearing the same ones from other guests. Will not be staying with them again!

Good Afternoon, thank you for sharing your thoughts on your stay with us. We appreciate hearing from all of our guests, so that we can make sure that we're the best we can be. I apologize for any inconveniences that you experienced while staying with us. We have replaced the carpeting, so there is no longer an issue with the carpeting when staying with us at Lodging. We do hope you decide to give us another chance to check out the improvements we've made throughout the hotel. Or you are of course welcome to try our two other properties in Berlin, Zinck's Inn and the Carriage House. Thank you again, have a wonderful day and we hope to see you again soon.

Occasionally we like to get away from everything - but in today's on-demand age you really can't afford to be truly off the grid, so when we decided to take a trip to Amish Country, we knew we wanted a place that would leave us feeling connected. Lodging on the Square provided us with the perfect solution. Located in the heart of Berlin (read, Amish Country), we found ourselves literally within walking distance of about twenty different Amish stores. The friendly staff welcomed us with a reception of sorts, featuring some locally made Amish cookies. Then it was an exterior (motel style) stairwell to our comfortably spacious room, complete with mini fridge, cable TV and free wifi. The continental breakfast in the morning was pretty standard, although they did have a couple lesser utilized items like hard boiled eggs and made to order waffles. The price we paid may have been a little higher than what we have paid for at comparable properties, but the location and friendly staff were enough to bridge the gap!

My mom, my sisters and I decided to take our first girls get away and we chose the Amish Country and had a lovely time. We stayed at Zinck's Lodging on the Square and the location was perfect! It was right in the middle of Main Street so we would shop for a bit, then take our purchased back to our room and head out again. Our room was very clean except the carpet. It was really gross actually. We didn't dare walk in our socks, let alone barefoot. two of us had slippers, and the other two just used their sandles to walk around the room. Also, when I made the reservation I let them know there would be four of us, however all the amenties, including sets of towels and pillows, was only enough for two people. We rang the front desk and the other items were brought quickly. Customer service was excellent on our first day, but the second day you could tell that young lady just did not want to be there. Continental breakfast was really good and we enjoyed the nightly snacks, especiall y the Amish cookies! Great place to stay if you just need a place to lay your head at night, but make sure to bring your slippers!

Considering the large room, whirlpool, and breakfast, combined with the economical price, this hotel offered the greatest value for any place I ever stayed. It has a great location with a phenomenal view, just minutes from the places we needed to go but not in an area that is completely overrun with tourists like downtown Berlin can be. The rooms were extremely clean and spacious. The hotel desk staff was courteous, and there was a decent selection of foods for breakfast to please everyone. The only sore spot (literally) was that the bed was so hard I actually hurt my hip by sleeping on my side one night...ouch. But overall I enjoyed my stay here and would likely come back again.

We have been staying at Zink's for about 10 years and keep returning, which tells you something. It is the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in, the food is WONDERFUL (and that really doesn't even begin to actually describe how good it is) and super helpful staff. This last visit there were vacancies, somethng unheard of in the Amish country, but economy is playing a factor everywhere and it didn't seem to faze the people at Zink's. We have also stayed on the square and the carriage house, both are nice, but still we prefer the Inn.
I always refer friends here.

The Best.... We stay here everytime we visit the Amish Country, which happens to be 2-3 times a year. We've traveled for years, been all over U.S, Mexico, Carribbean, Europe, etc., and other than the Marriott or Hilton, this is the best!!!! Cleanliness is the #! issue for us at any hotel and this place is spotless!! The breakfast is to-die for also.
