This hotel is older, but it was very clean. The location is great and I certainly felt safe in the area. The tv was modern but only had a few channels. There is an area where they serve breakfast, but we got up too late to make it there before going to the flea market. Therefore, I don't know what...

We traveled to Shipshewanna on June 7, 2016, and spent two nights at Der Ruhe Blatz Motel. My sister-in-law and I were given rooms next to each other. We had all the amenities we needed in our rooms. There was a complimentary breakfast in the morning featuring cold and hot foods. Each evening coffee, tea, cappuchino, and hot chocolate were...

Newly remodeled, sparkling clean, small motel. Quiet, with all the amenities (wifi, mini fridge, microwave, in-room coffee maker, porch seating, free breakfast). Close to downtown shopping and dining. Truly quiet, family run.Great bargain.

Room was comfy and clean, nice beds, plenty of room,plus you can park right at your door! The best part was sitting outside on the benches watching the horse and buggies go by (clip, clop). Enjoyed it much better than sitting in a room on the third floor watching TV. It was more expensive than the chain hotels. Motel breakfast...

Was unaware that the doors to the rooms were outside, traveling alone as a woman, it made me nervous, very sparse with the furniture, just a wooden chair to sit on, room was almost too clean, smelled of harsh chemicals....then went to take a shower and reached up for the shampoo and there was black hair on it....needless to say,...

The rooms were very clean and smell great. The cost was very inexpensive and it is close to downtown. It has friendly staff and always there if you need something. It is nice to have a hotel where you can see and hear the horses going down the street.

This is the second time we have stayed here, the first was quite a few years ago. It is clean, comfortable, and very inexpensive. There is a continental breakfast with great coffee and waffles if you like. The beds are comfy, the water is hot in the shower, a microwave, mini fridge, and this place is CLEAN. There really is...

The rooms are plain and very clean. Basic hotel and priced accordingly. Love the fact they allow pets. They have microwaves and frig in rooms. The low rating is mainly due to the owner. Very unfriendly and surly and we didnt even have an issue or complaint. He just doesnt seem to welcome the business. the breakfast they offer is...

Stayed the first weekend in October. Just an overnight stay. Very clean, which was appreciated! Just outside of town so the location was more than convenient. Rooms are pretty quiet and there is enough parking to park right outside of your room. The only downfall was the mattress was not the most comfortable.

The rooms were super clean. They hadn't just been gone over and sprayed to smell clean. The lighting was bad. The over head light was not significant to work by. You had to use the bedside light which kept the person in bed awake. There were not enough electrical outlets, they had a power strip on one outlet. There was...
