Verified Reviews of Van Buren Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Not all amenities were available."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
They advertise a full family restaurant however there is none. Pool was closed but no mention of it when booking room(s). I won a free night at the hotel while I was there. Tried to use it when checking out but manager had to approve it and he was not available. Not even there, however he would be later that day. I wasn't waiting. Now to avail myself of the free night, I'm going to have to come back sometime before 12 30 2020. 6 hour round trip for me. They advertise free cookies but none were available. Breakfast food was not very good and no variety. Rooms were comfortable, clean and a little bigger than most others. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.

"A jewell just up the road!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Van Buren is a very nice hotel. Our group stayed there while visiting Shipshewana. The manager was very accommodating for our group pricing. Adam made the checked in process very smooth and quick. Other staff members were always pleasant and friendly. The breakfast bar was well stocked. Our rooms were very nice and clean. We could not be more pleased. Make the trek a few blocks off the main area and stay at the Van Buren!
