Checked in on a Friday. Was greeted warmly and was helped by a very nice lady to get on the internet. Friday went well. Saturday morning at breakfast they ran out of gravy for the biscuits so no gravy for Saturday or Sunday. On Sunday besides no gravy they had also ran out of sausage patties. My husband and I...

This was our second year staying here and we really enjoy it, we stayed two nights this time. It's only a few minutes drive to downtown Shipshewana, it's a great quiet location. The staff is always friendly and helpful with info on shopping, food and general conversation when they're not busy. The room was exceptionally clean and the bed was...

We only stayed one night but it was very clean, staff was nice, and comfortable. The breakfast was good and they kept it replenished but very crowded. Too many people in a small space. But I got a table and got to eat so I can't complain too much. I would definitely stay here again, I am mostly looking for...

We spent such an enjoyable night in Shipshewana at the Van Buren Hotel. The weather is warming up, but it's not quite the busy season. We had a very nice young lady check us in.

We stayed here on an anniversary trip for two. We were absolutely please. Quick check-in. Cookies at the front desk. Clean room. We had a Jacuzzi room with a large two person tub. More than enough room for even two larger people. Slept wonderfully and the pillows and linens contributed to that. USB type charging station on the night stand....

Very clean, super comfortable bed. We have stayed here before and will stay again, breakfast was great, but no one seemed to be keeping things refilled and some stuff was almost gone. The desk had to be notified as no one was watching, so management needs some one to keep up on this.

We stayed overnight here to celebrate my mom's birthday. We did the same stay two years ago. We had four rooms and all of the family felt it was an excellent stay. Extremely clean, quiet, and comfortable. We wouldn't stay any other place in the area other than The Van Buren.
