We recently returned from a short trip to Berlin where we we met my wife's two brothers and their wives for a brief reunion. One brother and wife had been out of the country for a couple of years and this was our first chance to get together. The Inn was exactly as I envisioned it from the reviews on TripAdvisor. The rooms were clean, reasonably appointed, roomy and more than adequate for our stay. The lobby offered a perfect gathering place for us to snack (including the coffee and cookies provided), talk and laugh (my wife brought a silly word game over which we laughed enough to likely scare the other guests away). The lobby offered plenty of seating, a decent view and a warm fireplace. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The included breakfast was quite good - fairly standard expanded continental fare, but all fresh and plentiful. If I have a complaint (and I don't think it qualifies as that), it would be the arrangement for breakfast was a bit crowded. I am not sure how it could be avoided, but maybe a separate table in the lobby area or some other solution could be found to relieve some of the congestion. The hotel seemed to have a fair number of rooms filled, but it certainly was not a peak time - I would guess that would really add to the breakfast snarl. However, that is a very minor issue and the 24 hour availability of coffee more than made up for it. This is not a four star resort, but it is certainly serviceable, convenient to the local Amish attractions and more than fairly priced - especially at this time of year when the second day rate was half the first. Really a true bargain. I think in this case the rating for families is for mature families - I did not see any activities for young children and expect that once the novelty of the horse drawn transportation passing by wears off, little ones would be a bit bored. Overall a great choice for our group's purpose.
