When I arrived at the Blue Gate Garden Inn, the lobby was filled with 4-7 children running up and down the stairs, shrieking. The crashing sounds of air hockey from the nearby arcade added to the cacophony. I requested a room far from the lobby...and got one four doors down. In the room, I could hear the chaos; and also...

We enjoyed the attention to a family friendly atmosphere, the comforts of home with the added living area options, and the Amish touches from the farm. We would recommend, but more importantly, we would return again.

This was my third time staying at Blue Gate and like before it was wonderful. Love how clean and neat and tidy it is around the faculties and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Because we stayed here several extended family members did too and they say they will be staying here again if in the area.

We had a great time. The room was very nice, clean and just perfect for our needs! There was plenty to do for my granddaughter. The pool was incredible! And...we slept very well! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was way beyond our expectations! The price was most reasonable. We'll go back!!! Thank you for having us!

We purchased the package which included dinner, hotel accommodations, concert tickets, and a wonderful breakfast buffet the following morning. There were 10 women in our group. We all were very pleased with everything. The room was amazing for us to hang out and relax in between shopping and dinner/concert.

“The room was large and nice. There were 2 beds, a queen and a King size bed. The rooms were clean and fresh. A small fridge and microwave was in the room.. Very comfortable bed. We will definitely stay again in this wonderful hotel. ”

“Thea only frustrating thing was even though there is a kitchenette, there wasn't any plates or silverware available in the room. Paper plates & plastic silverware would have been good. ”
