10.0 Excellent

Cons:Great hotel in the heart of Shipshewana. Comfortable room, great staff and free full breakfast.

6.0 Okay
Pros:The breakfast was amazing and so helpful feeding a large family since there aren't many other food options around! The breakfast made up for our disappointment in the room.

Cons:I felt the beds were clean but the floors hadn't been vacuumed, and the bathroom was dirty. I found a toe nail on the floor between the beds, and dried urine and a white powder on the toilet, and dirty bathtub. If it wasn't so late for us at check in with young kids, we would have complained for a new room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros:My fiance and I stayed here for a couple days for her birthday. It was a Tuesday and Wednesday so that we could go to the shipshewana flea market and auction. This hotel made that experience so much more convenient and comfortable. It was very clean, our room had a refrigerator and a microwave, the in house ice cream/pizza shop was great, the pool is huge for a hotel, the hot tub was nice, the staff were all very polite and friendly, and our room included free breakfast each morning at their in-house buffet, which was a great start to our mornings. Overall, we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Cons:We really had to dig to find something negative to say, but at the breakfast buffet they only let you have one omelette, they need more chairs around their fire pit on their beautiful patio, and the a/c unit in our room could have been a little colder. That's all we could think of.

8.0 Great
Pros:The hotel was exactly what we were looking for - clean, comfortable, quiet. Breakfast was good.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:From staff to comfort it was the kind of stay you always hope for. Thanks!

Cons:For anyone coming in on a Sunday there is nothing open for supper. There was no "heads up" to that fact so the guest could plan accordingly. Maybe an expanded menu in the ice creamery could help.
