We spent three nights at the Van Buren Hotel in mid September 2015. The location is just outside the town of Shipshewana in a quiet country setting. The facility is very clean and attractive. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the breakfast and peaceful atmosphere. Rooms in the back have a nice view. The rates were reasonable....

Very, very clean room. Friendly staff. Quick check-in. Good breakfast. Will absolutely stay there again. Only draw back was we wanted a first floor room, but it was unavailable(we didn't call ahead unfortunately). They even had fresh cookies each night at the front desk.

Everything was very clean and homey. Front desk checked with us to make sure everything was okay. Breakfast was tasty with a good variety and was kept very clean by the attendant. Rooms were large and included refrigerators, microwaves and coffee maker. The bathrooms were large and had plenty of towels.

Room was clean. Front desk was nice and the follow up phone call to make sure room was acceptable was nice. Close to all the activities we wanted to take in. Buffet breakfast was just ok. We went at 8:30 and the room was packed and a lot of the items were missing. I suppose we were there at the...

This is the 10th year we have spent 3 days at The Van Buren Hotel. As usual it was very clean and restful. The breakfast is good with a great selection. It is quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable.

Booked through a discount sight pleasantly surprised to find a clean very nice hotel. We checked in a few hours early and the gal at the front desk ran to check our room, offered reading material while we waited. The room is large, clean and super comfortable. Great location for the town too. Will stay here again.

The room was much larger than expected. I liked the layout, in comparison to most hotels we stay at, which usually just has a giant room with a bed in it. This had a little sitting area then the bathroom and then the sleeping area. The room had a mini refrigerator and microwave which isn't always offered at other hotels....

The hotel is very close to the flea market and the room was well maintained. The reason for the Poor rating was the check-in clerk and the breakfast attendent were very rude and unfriendly. My family and I come down every year and take turns staying at the different hotels, but we won't be back to this on.

We chose this hotel as a stopping point on our way to visit family. We had 5 people and were able to get a rollaway so we could all be in one room. It was clean and quiet. The property is well taken care off. Staff is friendly. We arrived late and the lady at the desk was very helpful...
