The Van Buren hotel is a lovely hotel. It is clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the usual but good and plentiful. Check in was easy and the front desk clerk was very helpful. I had booked the wrong type of room and she changed if with no problem and even refunded me the difference in price. The pool was...

Stayed here when we made our semi-annual Amish butter, meat and cheese run to Yoders. As usual, very accommodating. From checking in to checking out everything was great. All staff was friendly and made you feel welcome. All facilities we used are clean. Would recommend them to anyone.

Our stay was very nice! The room was very accessible and the staff was nice. The only issues were we had to have our keys reprogram a couple of times. We also had issues accessing the breakfast being that we are both in wheelchairs but we managed. We would stay there again in the future.

We stopped here late at night to sleep, and got up to leave early. Staff was friendly, room was clean, their free breakfast had many choices and plenty of room for everyone to sit and enjoy it.

From the minute we checked in until the minute we checked out this hotel was perfect. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the salt water pool was amazing. There was a large variety of breakfast available and all of it was delicious. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby, just make sure your done early as nearly everything closes at 5.

Booked four rooms for nine ladies. We were greeted warmly at 11:00 pm by a lovely host and warm fire. Rooms are on one level and easy to get to from inside the hotel and by side doors as well. Beds were amazingly comfy and cozy. No complaints about that! The bathroom was large and the shower was wonderful. They...

This hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff are warm and welcoming. The furnishings are traditional. It's fun to look outdoors and watch the buggies go by. They sent us to the Blue Gate for an Amish dinner that was delicious.
