Weekend Getaway

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Gate. We liked the fact they served coffee and hot tea in the lobby all during the day. We had a mini fridge and microwave in our room. The breakfast was very yummy especially the omlets. We didn't go down to the ice cream bar because we had so many sweets during the day, but next we will have to try it out. The only thing that we would have liked was microwave popcorn in the vending machines :) We would stay here again!!

The best experience

This hotel was top notch. We noticed the hominess and cleanliness the minute we stepped thru the door. The people at the desk were polite and informative. On to the beautiful spacious room, complete with fridge and microwave. The pool and hot tub were a plus and the buffet breakfast were beyond belief. I will stay at this hotel every time I visit Shipshewana (usually once a year).

Convenient to everything.

We liked everything about this place. The breakfast is more of a buffet than continental. If you subtract the cost of eating breakfast out the room rates are very reasonable. Will be a 5 once the pool is finished.

Weekend Getaway

The hotel was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. There was no pool or hot tub though, which would have been nice to use. That area of the hotel was being remodeled.

amish getaway

We had to change our room because of loud noise that woke us up at 5:30 in the morning. Some type of exhaust fan on the outside of building. Can you tell me why I paid more money thru your wedsite than was on my receipt from the hotel? Will I get reimburced ? I sure hope so.
