The Shipshewana Flea Market is just one reason so many guests flock to this Howe hotel, but there's so much more to explore. Notre Dame draws a big crowd, especially for football games and special events. The Michiana Events Center regularly hosts world-class shows. The local military school, Howe School, is another reason this Howe hotel is committed to being a family-friendly, comfortable destination. The biggest outdoor flea market, Shipshewana, is only nine miles from the hotel. We're just north of I80/90 and are located on a major route between Chicago and New York. The pool at this Howe hotel is sublime and the perfect place to relax after a day of bargain hunting. We also work closely with the Amish community to make your stay special. Staff members at this Howe hotel are happy to book an Amish buggy tour with dinner at the Amish House. If something outdoors sounds tempting, the region is known for fantastic canoeing, hunting and fishing. The surrounding wildlife areas make it easy to get away from it all. Warmth and hospitality in clean, comfortable rooms is our priority. Many guests choose this Howe hotel because of stellar online reviews, but they keep returning for the personal service. Touches like our complimentary breakfast spread are standard here. Enjoy a variety of breakfast favorites like sizzling hot eggs and waffles, pastries, fresh fruits, cereals, yogurt, chilled juices and 100% Arabica coffee. We're also happy to host business travelers at our Howe hotel. Employees of Abbott Ross Laboratories, RV Industries, and Cheese Factory are regular guests here. We take pride in providing every guest with a home away from home. Our service is unbeatable. Whether you're in town to relax, take care of business or start an adventure, you deserve some pampering.

    « LOVE THE HOSPITALITY »

    I stayed here based on reviews and now, I am happy I did! Great management and staff made me feel welcome just like old-fashioned hospitality! Enjoyed the view from my window. Very soundproof even though near Toll Road Loved it!

    « Very clean, comfy and convenient location »

    Our party of 4 stayed at this location for a trip to the Shipshewana Flea Market. Since we had not been there in the past, we decided to stay a few miles outside of that town expecting loads of traffic and people in Shipshewana itself. The location of this hotel was an easy 20 minute drive through Amish neighborhoods. Access to the high way was convenient.

    « Nice and new. »

    Nice folks. Nice new facility. Very nice pool and exercise facility. Really the best place around the area. Slim pickin's in this area. rooms are clean and adequate. Right off the highway and just about a mile south of the Michigan state line.

    « Quiet, excellent breakfast »

    This says it all: Would I stay here again? Absolutely! Pros: Friendly staff. Quiet. Excellent, clean, furnishings. Excellent lighting in the room. Plenty of outlets in the room. Nice desk and chairs in the room. Excellent wi-fi signal strength. Looks new; no "worn" or "tired" appearance. First-rate breakfast, with french toast, waffles, Canadian bacon, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, bagels, buttermilk biscuits, several juices, sausage gravy, plus an active person who is constantly updating the food items. Cons: Location can be easily missed, with no sign at the entrance from the road.

    « Amazing Hotel »

    This hotel is absolutely amazing, I stayed at the hotel for work purposes/ family reunion. The hotel staff are amazing. I had the suite, and it offered everything I needed for my stay and to visit my family. The only thing that was missing was a hot tub.

    « Waiting for RV repair »

    Probably one of the nicer places in the area to stay. Our first night the room wasn't as clean as it could have been. The 2nd night they raised the rate $10. They still provided a $9 discount because we were having our RV repaired locally.

    « Great value, convenient location. »

    Excellent rates for a quality room. Breakfast had several low-carb options for the guest watching their waisteline. My family of six stayed in a suite for under $150. It was well furnished and provided plenty of space. Located right next to the toll road...easy-on and easy off!

    « Business Stay »

    Hotel is always clean, neat & very friend staff. The Hotel is easy to access off the Toll Road or Highway. Breakfast has a good variety. However, they could offer other healthy food & beverages. Food quality is very good & very well set up. My stays are for business purposes.

    « Family Trip »

    Grace, the manager, was wonderful. There was a bit of confusion when I checked in simply because my sister-in-law and I share the same name. But Grace was wonderful in working it out. Since several family members traveled for a funeral, Grace was terrific in putting all of our rooms next to each other on the third floor. We appreciated that very much. Room was very, very comfortable. Housekeeping was terrific. I asked for additional coffee and it was there. Just an overall wonderful hotel! For future trips, we will be staying there. Stayed: January 2018, traveled with family ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????

    « Pleasant Last Minute Surprise »

    It was 11:30PM, and I was traveling from my home of the last decade (Madison, WI) to my new home and career (Bethlehem, PA). I had realized at about 8PM that I was not going to make it all the way to the far eastern end of PA that night. I started calling the hotels for the frequent sleeper programs of which I am a member to no avail. At around 10PM, I started just taking exits and stopping at all the local hotels. After an hour and a half, I chanced upon the Best Western in Howe. The night clerk was congenial and accommodating. I was signed up for the discount club and in my room in less than 20 minutes. The room was clean, the coffee station was well-provisioned, and the bathroom had plenty of hot water in the morning. I did not hear anything until my alarm, and left well-rested with a pain-free back. This place is not a destination, but a way-station. It fulfills this function perfectly. When I travel in the other direction to visit family, I will be returning to the Howe, IN Best Western. My thanks to the staff.

    « Another Great Stay »

    We have stayed at the Best Western, Howe many times when we are in the area visiting relatives. Once again it was top notch (smoke free property, very clean and comfortable). Employees friendly and helpful. I spilled some water on the floor near the elevator and the desk clerk was very prompt in mopping it up when I asked for assistance. My husband and I have never considered staying elsewhere as we have never been disappointed with Best Western. Please keep up the great services that you provide at the Howe, Best Western!

    « Stuck on Christmas »

    It's Christmas Eve and we're on our way to the Naval Base to adopt my daughter for the day. 4 hrs away from home and 3 hrs from the Base. We blew out 2 new tires going through the storm. We waited over 3 hrs for a tow with a toddler. We were towed to The Best Western Plus. We were waiting to eat to get into Chicago so needless to say we were sooo hungry. The front desk clerk was amazing. She was sooo friendly and kind. She brought us fruit, yogurt and muffins. Fantastic service! Although we didn't make it to see my daughter, my kids and I were safe at this hotel.

    « Decent stay »

    It was very clean and the staff was friendly. It was also quiet. The breakfast was pretty typical for a hotel of this level but I appreciate that it has salsa, peppers, cheese, choice of boldness of coffee. My only complaint is that the beds were not comfortable. We were a little stiff when we woke up. But otherwise a good stay.

    « BW has really improved »

    BW has really improved their image over the past 25 years or so. You have come a long way. We used to look for BW when just looking for the best price, now we look for BW when we want clean/neat at a value price. So many Motels have gone the other way, Clean/neat to best price.

    « Lower end of Best Western properties, but fine »

    Business in Northern Indiana brought me here. I'm not picky and I grew up in this area and know the caliber of hotels around Howe. I went for the convenience, definitely a lower-end property. A friendly beetle (roach?) spent some time with me as I worked from the hotel room for one day, until I caught him and threw him outside. This place is probably comparable to all the others at the Howe turnpike exit.

    We stayed for one night. Check in was super fast. The room was ver nice, comfortable beds, great bathroom with very large countertop for your items. Coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator in the room. Nice pool area and fitness center. They even offer a fitness pack with yoga mat, stretch bands, etc. very friendly staff, no matter who you come in contact with. Good breakfast, with a variety of choices. The waffles are a bit hidden, so some people didn't notice they were available, but they had a nice variety of toppings. Would definitely recommend!

    « Small Gem in Howe »

    This hotel is a gem. The maintenance is top notch and obvious. Grace manages a hard working team. The breakfast is simple, clean, and tasty. I travel 120 nights in a year, I always look forward to coming back.

    « Basic stay at an average Best Western »

    We were here for a wedding. I think the price is a bit high for the location (in the middle of nowhere) and what had happened. We lost power most of the first day in the hotel. Our room was completely out of power. It eventually was fixed, but it made things difficult.

    « Best Hotel in Howe, Indiana »

    Always a clean, comfortable stay at this Best Western. The staff is excellent. Housekeepers and front desk staff are all friendly, helpful & courteous. The interior has been recently updated with an inviting lobby & dining area. WiFi, pool, computers & exercise room included.

    « Nice place close to sons school »

    My son is a student at Howe and this BW was only a mile from the school so it was perfect in that aspect. The check in was fast and friendly. We were on the first floor of the 2 story hotel. Our room was spacious with a king bed sleeper sofa mini fridge and microwave. There is a pool but we didn't have time to use it. The morning breakfast had quite a few choices which was nice with picky kids. Close to the freeway and shopping nearby.

    « Great place »

    We booked this hotel for a girl's outing to Shipshewana and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel and room. The desk staff were beyond helpful in every way. We selected this hotel for the hot breakfast (vs other continental offerings in the area) and it did not disappoint. There is even a Kuerig machine in the room. Highly recommend this location.

    « Just passing through »

    We were just beginning a two week road trip. I booked here strictly do to location. It was an easy access on and off Interstate, unfortunately it was right next door to a sheady looking motel. This is the first time While I have stayed in a Best Western before, this was my first stay in a BW Plus. I am not sure what the Plus means, but if this is typical, it should be BW Minus. When I first walked in the smell of chlorine from the poll overwhelmed you. The person checking me in was just "going through the motions". He didn't act like he wanted to be there. The room itself was OK, nothing fancy but what you would expect for this class hotel. Once settled I turned on the TV. That was all I could do turn it on and off. Couldn't change channels. As it was late and I had settled in, I didn't want to change rooms so I turn it off. Breakfast was OK. What you would expect for that class hotel. When I checked out I told then about the problem with the TV, their reply was "OK I guess I can have someone look at it". No apology or anything.

    « Nice location and hotel »

    Was a little tricky at first trying to figure out exactly how to get to the hotel parking lot as you have to go through another hotel's parking lot to get to it. Nice décor, comfortable bed, nice clean pool area, friendly staff and overall good quality and reasonable price.

    « Love This Hotel »

    Shipshewana, Indiana is such a great place to visit. We wanted to go to the play at the Blue Gate Theatre "Homegame" and also visit the shops and nearby attractions. We chose the "Best Western Plus at Howe because it was right near the Interstate 80/90 and only 12 miles from the middle of downtown Shipshewana. The drive from the hotel is so peaceful and passes by Amish homes and also as you travel you share the road with Amish buggies. The hotel although near the Interstate is very quiet. The rooms are very clean; comfortable beds; lots of pillows and also extras like Microwave and fridge in the room. The breakfast in the morning is really good. You would not be disappointed in a stay at this hotel.

    The room was spacious and clean with two queen beds which were very comfortable. The bathroom was tile floor with granite vanity top, shower supplies and nice shower head. The room had big screen TV., Microwave, fridge, closet with steel hangers and an iron. Quiet incremental heat cool unit, chair, desk and night table with alarm clock. Breakfast consisted of Juice, Coffee, Hot and Cold Cereal, Waffles, Bread, Hot Scrambled Eggs ( Best Ever), Sausage Patty, French Toast. All very good. Great location off Hyw 80.

    « Perfect! »

    I wish all of our hotel stays were as awesome as this stay in Howe's Best Western! It looked like a new hotel, but I was surprised it was built in 2004. So very well maintained! Clean! Good breakfast selection, clean room, liked the refrig in our room, and Internet worked! Great stay!

    « Well worth the money! »

    Nice hotel. Comfy beds, clean, and good breakfast. We didn't get a chance to try out the pool but it looked nice. The breakfast is good. Make sure you peek around the corner! We didn't know there was more breakfast on the other side of the wall until we were done.

    « OK for area »

    The hotel is nice enough for the area, where only lower end properties are available. The room was clean and the minimal amenities were supplied. The free breakfast was served only until 9:30 on a Sunday, an earlier time than I usually experience at other hotels. It was very crowded at 9 AM and food was running out, so suggest going early. There was an odd, unpleasant odor throughout the lobby, halls and room. The elevator doors were timed to close almost immediately so be areful when exiting and entering! More than once, I was surprised. My husband uses a cane and moves slowly but this is the only hotel elevator that caused an issue in our 10 nights away.

    « Appreciated the tub. »

    This is my 2nd Best Western stay in two years. Each time I have SO appreciated the AquaGlass Corp tub that is 60" x 24" overall and about 22" wide. For an elder, this means I can take a tub bath and get out of the tub. The floor of the tub is so wide, I can bend my legs, get up on my knees and pull myself up by the bar provided.

    « nice comfortable hotel »

    easy access right off route 80. Very reasonable rate, nice bedding & a great shower. The breakfast was very satisfying. They had a huge lot so parking our Ford 150 with our 12 foot motorcycle trailer was not a problem. Would stay here again.

    « Best Western + is the BEST! »

    I have chosen to make Best Western+ the hotel to stay in each time I visit my elderly mother in a nursing home near by. The staff is always so friendly, day or night! It is convenient to get to and there are shopping centers and restaurants very near.

    « Very pleasant »

    Very nice hotel. We stayed in a 2 room suite and it was very comfortable and roomy. It was quiet while we were there and the pool was clean and refreshing. Staff were very courteous and quickly provided for needs when asked. The location is easy and within 15-20 minutes of many area attractions.

    5
    « No suggestions for improvement! »

    This is the best Best Western I have ever stayed in. The location is great - right off the highway. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast has both variety and quality, unlike another Best Western I stayed at on this same trip (the bread seemed to have been made with sawdust there), and the breakfast room feels more like a restaurant than a cafeteria. The room was attractive and clean, and the price was reasonable. If you want a quiet room, ask to be in the back of the hotel which abuts a field (no parking). Further up State Road 9 are gas stations, shopping, and restaurants including Culver's (a treat for those of us from the east). I have stayed in this hotel before and I plan on staying there again when I drive to the Midwest and beyond.

    « Gluten Free Breakfast Bagels and Muffins »

    We were driving cross country and just needed an affordable place to sleep. Nothing else. This hotel first got my attention with no negative comments on TripAdvisor. So the price was right, right on our route, so we reserved and stopped. This is not a fancy hotel, but serves the traveler well. The rooms were clean. The beds while not luxurious were clean. But the thing that got my attention was the breakfast. They actually had Udi's Gluten Free Bagels and muffins. Several other Gluten Free options available like yogurt. That made this better than any luxurious 5 Star for me. Good job BW+ in Howe.

    « Best Western - Howe Indiana »

    This hotel is an excellent choice for the business traveler or for a family getaway. Great staff and clean rooms. The hotel is adjacent to the Indiana Toll Road making it easy to find. It is located in the heart of Indiana Amish country. This area provides many great family attractions.

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    The hotel was nice & clean for the most part. My only issue with cleanliness was the bathtub. It looked as if they did not clean it for at least several days, if not longer. It had a small amount of red mold in it below the shelves where the water runs off of the shelves during a shower, (the shelves that hold the soap and shampoo bottle). Other than that I had no other issues. I would stay there again.

    « Pretty good »

    Overall this place is pretty good. The continental breakfast seemed to have a lot of options and was yummy. Bathroom was nice and on the bigger side. The bed for some reason had to be one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept on at a hotel. There is a pool decent size indoor, but no hottub.

    « Stayed for one night »

    Driving south on M66 my GPS told me I had arrived but we almost missed the entrance, believing it was the entrance for a motel next door. It is actually a shared entrance and has a missable Best Western sign when you're looking at a more bold yellow sign for the neighbouring property. We arrived pretty early in the afternoon and checked-in while our RV was in for service work nearby. The receptionist was polite and attentive, advising us the room wasn't quite ready (but like I mentioned - we did get there early so no concerns from me on this). Instead, we opted to head off for a while and do some shopping. Again, on the return, I almost missed the BW entrance. The parking lot was pretty empty so I had no problem parking a full sized F350 dually. The room was clean and cool - a welcome from the heat and humidity of outside. It was spacious and we had a king bed, flat screen TV with cable, fridge and microwave. Tea & coffee making facilities were also in the room as were ironing facilities. The wall paper was starting to peel away at the top near the window and at the seams. The bathroom is spacious but a poor repair to the wall paper made this look shabby. Stains in the paper above the toilet didn't improve the look either. The shower/bath was itself clean and equipped with shampoo, conditioner, soap and moisturizer. Several times I came out to find the fire doors on the second floor stairs had been propped open - a code violation where I come from. Hopefully, this wasn't done by staff There is a pleasant indoor heated pool that was pretty quiet and provided a relaxing unwind before retiring for the night. Wi-Fi is included in the cost of the room as is breakfast served from 0600 - 0930. This consists of cereal, ham, omelette and sausage gravy. Toast, muffins, self cooked waffles, fruit and yoghurt. Juice, coffee and tea is also provided. Overall, a pretty good selection. Although this hotel is located close to the Interstate traffic noise was not audible - partly because of the soundproofing but also due to the AC and that I was toward the rear of the property. For a one night stay this room was Ok and we'd stay again if in the area.

    I was on the road for eight days by the time I got here. Everything was good, from the breakfast to the cleanliness of the room. The service was pleasant and interacted with me. One thing that was dangerous for me is the rocky parking field that kicked rocks onto the driveway. Being on a motorcycle that is no fun. They should sweep them off.

    The hotel was in a great location and it was clean and comfortable. Even though there was a trainee at the front desk, his trainer was aware and helped right away when the new hire stumbled. Both were personable and friendly. The staff suggested a local eatery for dinner, which I greatly enjoyed. Despite the proximity to the expressway, the room was very quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

    « An OK Place to Overnight Along I-80/90, But Nothing Memorable »

    This is an ok property right along Interstate 80/90, which is nice, but no restaurants close by. You have to drive up into Sturgis, MI for a limited offering of sit-down options. Rooms were clean with good mattress. No excessive traffic noise. Very limited tv station line-up. Staff assigned a second floor room when obviously there is first floor availability. In ways like this they don't seek to accommodate you with anything special. All in all, an ok place to overnight, but nothing memorable about it.

    Our stay was nice. A few issues but nothing major. No coffee in one room, vending machines empty on all floors. Breakfast should last until 10. Overall the room was clean and the staff was friendly. Wish there had been a hot tub.

    « Clean, quiet and convenient »

    My son and I stayed here one night. It was very clean, quiet, room was cute and updated, very easy access from I80, decent hot breakfast for a hotel and night staff was pleasant. Parking lot was shared with a somewhat downtrodden hotel but not a deterrent. Absolutely would stay here again. A plus - the beds were extremely comfortable. I am picky about my beds due to aches and pains and I would happily pick out this bed for my own house. Do be aware Indiana is currently constructing on I80, and about half the off ramps were closed. So where ever you stay this spring/summer make sure that ramp is actually open. Otherwise ramps are spread out 15-20 miles and it could be a huge pain to have to go out of your way.

    We were celebrating my 70th birthday and decided to spend sometime in the Shipshewana, Indiana area. We chose this hotel because it was only roughly 9 miles from the downtown. Very clean hotel with great staff. Although located near the Interstate 80/90 we had a very quiet night rest with no traffic noise. Hotel has a pool and complimentary breakfast. You won't be disappointed in a stay at this hotel.l

    I have stayed in Howe before at a competitor and tried to again but they were sold out so I decided to try this interesting property nearby. I am SO happy that I chose this option. Plenty of parking, easy check-in, free upgrade to Suite plus an outstanding breakfast all contributed to my complete satisfaction.

    We went to Colon MI for a visit to the local magic shops and had a great time. We were 30 minutes from Howe and decided to stay there. The staff was friendly, helpful, even looking up a restaurant for us and the room was clean and well taken care of, even the hallways smelled nice. In the morning, breakfast was a nice variety of things to choose from. When we return to the area next year, we will stay there again.

    « Nice and Quiet Location »

    Arrived at this location for an overnight over Labor Day after visiting Shipshewana, Indiana. This was a great location if you want to escape the crowd and noise that visit Shipshewana Amish area. Although this location was built in 2003 they have new updates since we visited last in the spring of 2010. The carpeting seems newer and the rooms have had the furniture and bathroom fixtures updated since our last visit. The breakfast area was relatively small for the size of the property and the breakfast hours for the free continental breakfast was open from 6am to 9:30am for those of you who are later risers. Checkout time was 12 noon which was later then typical for most hotels we have visited in the past. We were able to go into the indoor pool which was a nice size but we expected the water temperature to be a little warmer then it was for an indoor pool. Overall I would recommend this property for a night or two stay while visiting this area.

    « Hard to get to, but worth the find! »

    Tucked back next to a motel, off I-80/90 @Sturgis/Howe, this seemingly new hotel sits. Odd having to weave through a neighboring motel's parking lot to arrive there, but a clean, quiet room awaits. And that's really all that matters for us. A very generous breakfast was offereded. Although we don't use the pool when we travel, a lot of people were! Remodeling was going on, but did not interfere with guests. VERY NICE Front Desk! :-)

    « I thought we were in Michigan! »

    The Best Western Plus in Howe, IN, right across the border from Sturgis MI is a decent place for an overnight stay. I think it might be a bit overpriced, but we only had the option of a suite, which included a hot tub, separate from the bathroom, in the same area with the bed, desk, etc. The room included the aforementioned hot tub, microwave, refrigerator and desk. The bath included a hair dryer and a coffee maker. We had a king-sized bed, Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

    « Fine. Large room. Clean enough. Okay breakfast. »

    Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did not think this was a five-star experience. It was a very good experience, just not five star. The front desk clerk was terrific. We arrived late and she had a line ahead of us but was fairly quick. The front desk area was small but clean. This is a modest hotel. The bathroom door was hollow and the lighting cheap. Some of the wallpaper was beginning to peel. But the room was very large. We got a suite and there was a door in between the bedroom and the sitting area. The sitting area was especially large. The room was clean, no nonsense, functional. Impressively, our room wrapped around the elevator shaft but we did not hear anything all night. Breakfast options were few but fairly standard ? cereal, Instant oatmeal, premade sausages, omelettes, juice machine. There was a small selection of gluten-free food ? a prepackaged blueberry muffin, bread and cereal. Tables in the breakfast area were small. All staff we interacted with were very nice.

    We stay at this hotel whenever we go to the Shipshewana Flea Market. The services are excellent, and we are only about 20 minutes away from the flea market. The best part is that the price is about 2/3rd's of what we would pay for a motel in Shipshewana itself.

    We had a great time while staying in the motel. I took advantage of the free computer and internet service, since we found the wifi to be very slow and cumbersome.

    « Budget motel that is very good »

    We could not go where we usually book an inn, but found this a few miles away from our usual exit at Elkhart. This inn is much better than where we used to stay. It was quieter. The bed and pillows were more comfortable. The breakfast was as good or better. (Definitely the coffee was MUCH better.) The down side was fewer restaurants nearby, but Sturgis , Mi was only 5 minutes north and had restaurants open late. It was a little more expensive than the other place, but worth it.

    After keeping our choices limited to cost, and dealing with subpar rooms, this was a refreshing change. For just a bit more than we had been paying during this trip, we had comfortable sleeping for 2 adults and 3 children and access to an indoor pool. The breakfast, which was rated on Expedia as above average, was not impressive, but also not enough to rate this hotel as anything less than excellent.

    We were pleased with our entire stay of 6 days. The room was clean and spacious. Enjoyed a hot breakfast everyday with good variety. Breakfast was always ready earlier than the listed time of 6. We were surprised that we never heard any noise from the hall or other rooms even though the hotel was very full most nights of our stay. Internet was fast. The staff was helpful and pleasant. We will stay there again when we get in the area.

    This hotel was a perfect starting point for various southern Michigan and northern Indiana ventures. The room was very clean, nothing extravagant, but well suited for a couple or family looking to travel. The staff was helpful/informed on the area's activities. We went for a polish festival and ended up with a bunch of other things to occupy our time. This was the only hotel with 4+ reviews and it was worth the extra money. The only downside was that the pool was very small, but if you're in the area then it's most likely you have something other to do than lounge around the pool.

    We stayed one night on a roadtrip along the turnpike and found this hotel to be a great value. While the surrounding area was a little shady, it seemed safe overall and the inside of the hotel and price made up for the exterior. The rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable and newish.

    We were driving to Canton,Ohio from Wisconsin. The wife made me stop driving in the middle of the night. I was going to drive straight thru. Guess who won that argument???? So we stopped at 4:45 am and thought we would sleep for 3-4 hours and shower and go. I thought maybe they would give us some kind of a deal. I have triple A, I am a member of thier hotel rewards chain, and still paid full price. Wasn't about the money but just thought a deal should have been given. So we slept and showers and we're back on the road 4 hours later. Room was clean and the bed was super comfy. Had they given me a deal I would have rated this place 5 stars.

    Pleasant and quiet stay but the entrance to this fine hotel is a negative. Having to drive through the parking lot of the"less than desirable" hotel next to this hotel makes you second guess yourself if you should stay. This is the only entrance and or exit available.
