I stayed at the Best Western Howe a few years ago and liked it. This time I had a less enjoyable experience.
The room is clean and makes a good first impression when you walk through the door. Unfortunately, that good feeling wore off for me when it came time to turn out the lights. The wall are thin and I heard the TVs in the rooms on either side of me. Also, I heard a number of bangs as people walked around in those rooms, as well as in the corridor. Since I was on the top floor, I know the footsteps weren't coming from above. I did not sleep well.
The breakfast area is too small to seat more than a few people, and there isn't much choice in what to eat.
The tap water suffers from the same sulfurous odor that seems to affect every hotel in northeastern Indiana. (I've stayed at many of them.)
The Holiday Inn Express on the other side of the Toll Road is a possible alternative. I'm pretty sure it wasn't there in 2005 when I last stayed in Howe. Another alternative is the Hampton Inn in Sturgis, Michigan, which is only about a block away on the other side of the state line.
