Was pleasantly delighted to find out that we had a complimentary room upgrade upon arrival. Surprising the moms with this trip was great, but this upgrade really added to the experience. Love the hotel and wonderful breakfast!

Hotel was very nice. Clean, room was large. Breakfast was beyond excellent. The staff was very helpful! Shipshewana closes down after 5:00 and the hotel had lots of things to do! They had air hockey and ping pong tables. Also had a pizza and ice cream parlor. We were very impressed! Will definitely stay here next trip!

We stayed at the Blue Gate Garden Inn, because it was next door to the event center. We had tickets to see Kris Kristofferson, and wanted to stay close by. We stayed in a patio suite, which had a sitting room, and small kitchenette with a mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. The room had a private patio with table...

When we arrived we didn't have the reservation I thought I had reserved. The young lady at the desk worked with us to get the correct room. We wanted ground floor patio room.. It did not disappoint us. We throughly enjoyed sitting in the rockers after a long day and enjoying the breeze. In the evening the patios are in...

Very nice place to stay. You have porches with rocking chairs, greenery in the form of flowers, grassy areas. Easy walking distance to most shops. Clean rooms every day. Ample space. Would stay again.

Enjoyed our stay the only problem we had was. We wanted to go swimming and went in the pool room. It had a high smell of chlorine and when we walked out of the room I could still feel it in my nose and lungs.

Very clean friendly Inn. Love the huge complimentary breakfast buffet. We love the option of getting ice cream or pizza and sitting outside by the firepit, all without having to leave the Inn. Huge outdoor backyard seating area

We stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and really enjoyed it. The hotel was clean and close to all the attractions. This time was different...we were surprised at how musty the room smelled and how dirty it was. We decided not to stay and moved on to another hotel. To their credit, the staff members were very pleasant. We...
