Good Clean Hotel

Very good, except that after making the booking online for what I thought were 4 adults, I found at the hotel that it was for only 2, and they increased the cost by $20.

Clean,nice location,great price.

The only negative is check in not till 3:00 P.M. Everything was the cleanest I have seen in a hotel. The breakfast was good clean counters and tables were clean. They needed fruit on the breakfast bar. I would go back for sure.

A Very Enjoyable Stay

We recently spent three nights at the Van Buren in Shipshewana. We stayed in a king suite. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The morning breakfasts were varied and filling. Our room was always well prepared and clean. It was quite novel to wake up to the clip-clop of the Amish horse and buggies as they made their way into the village. Shipshewana is very busy for a small village on Tuesdays and Wednesdays due to the highly popular flea market. The Van Buren was on the outer edge of the village and away from all the hustle and bustle traffic on those days. Don't miss a trip to the Blue Gate Restaurant for a delcious meal. I would highly recommend the hotel.

...Good Stuff!

As I said in the title...after reading other reviews and so many positive comments the comments turned out to be really true. I am very picky about the cleanliness of my room and it was just about perfect! Staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the only thing I wish is that it were within walking distance of the shops in town. But, it is within a mile or so of the shops and the flea market, and we found no problem with parking.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Recommend the Das Dutchman Essenhaus in Middlebury for dinner. Great buffet! Not impressed with Blue Gate Restaurant's food. At Blue Gate Restaurant...one piece of the bread in my sandwich was prepared with the "heel" of the loaf of bread. Ordered plain buttered noodles and was brought noodles with diced chicken on top.

Very clean

This was probably the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. Friendly staff and a great location. The breakfast wasn't the greatest, but everything else was great.

Clean, friendly, good location. The air conditioning was located in bedroom and it was noisy and blew air on me all night- not good. Otherwise a positive experience.

Best Secret of Shipshewana!

We had a wonderful experience at the Van Buren Hotel except for my snoring which aggravated my roommate! We were both very surprised to see the enormous and delicious breakfast which was not listed on the web site, nor was the swimming pool. Highly recommend this location and accomodations!

Great value

The hotel was a great find. The in-room refrigerator and microwave were enclosed in cabinetry that made the room feel like a resting place instead of an efficiency apartment.
