My husband and I just needed a place to stay over for 1 night before we headed home and I got a great price for this motel. It looks pretty simple from the outside but it was a great room. We had all that we needed even if we had stayed for several days and it was super clean. We...

Stayed here when going to the play at Blue Gate (great!) and shopping in the area. This is much like a Knight's Inn. Bed OK, A/C works great, shower made whistling sound, towels very thin. Musty odor (all rooms non-smoking). Breakfast sub-par, with tepid microwaved biscuits with gravy (you can make a waffle or have cereal or decent mini-muffins). Coffee...

I was very disappointed since the reviews seemed to indicate this was a nice place. First thing i noticed when I walked into the room was a very thin door linking my room to my neighbor. I should walked out then. The main door had sunlight shining through the bottom of it. The toilet threatened to fall over and wouldn't...

We were so pleased with the entire stay. The room was very clean, included a refrigerator and microwave. The sheets were crisp and reminded me of being a kid when mom hung the sheets outside and have that wonderful smell. The staff was friendly and we were close to town. I highly recommend staying here.

very clean and roomy. Some local channels on the TV had no sound so was limited on what we could watch. Quiet and convenient with parking right at the door. Beds very comfortable with two queen size in the room.

This motel offers clean rooms, a good breakfast and friendly service. It's an older style, single story motel, you can park right outside you door. The best thing is it's pet friendly:). There is a nice campground right beside the motel, which works well for walking your pet. I would stay here again!

First time staying at this motel. It was clean and comfortable, with parking right outside your door. Reasonably priced with free wi-fi and continental breakfast. We choose this motel because it has some pet friendly rooms. We will probably stay here again in the future.

This hotel is older, but it was very clean. The location is great and I certainly felt safe in the area. The tv was modern but only had a few channels. There is an area where they serve breakfast, but we got up too late to make it there before going to the flea market. Therefore, I don't know what...

We traveled to Shipshewanna on June 7, 2016, and spent two nights at Der Ruhe Blatz Motel. My sister-in-law and I were given rooms next to each other. We had all the amenities we needed in our rooms. There was a complimentary breakfast in the morning featuring cold and hot foods. Each evening coffee, tea, cappuchino, and hot chocolate were...
