We stayed overnight here to celebrate my mom's birthday. We did the same stay two years ago. We had four rooms and all of the family felt it was an excellent stay. Extremely clean, quiet, and comfortable. We wouldn't stay any other place in the area other than The Van Buren.

Quite, comfortable, friendly, clean,everything you would want to get a good nights sleep. What more could you want. You might want bike the Pumpkinvine Trail, very scenic, lots of farms with lots of horses. Stop in at E&S sales for some great grocery bargains.

Pulling in to this fantastic getaway the hotel was very inviting. The addition to the front entrance was a blessing as it was snowing when we arrived. When we walked in we were greeted by a large beautiful Christmas tree and an oh so sweet desk clerk. We were quickly checked in and in our room to rest after a...

This was my second stay at the Van Buren and I highly recommend it. I appreciate the fact that they don't allow pets in the room so I don't have to listen the dogs barking or walk into a room that smells like a dog's been in there. The rooms are extremely clean, roomy and very quiet. Breakfast is your...

On the positives: A bit less expensive than some other options in the area, friendly staff, quiet and clean during our stay, and the general no pet policy is helpful for those of us with allergies. Not as great: The breakfast is average and the exercise room is spartan (one treadmill, one bike, one hand weight for the entire place).

Our stays all started with a very friendly greeting. The rooms were very clean and roomy. The hotel was located close to all of the shopping and a lot of the restaraunts.They have a great breakfast in the morning with a great selection to choose from. Check out was easy and fast. We will continue to stay on future trips.

I stayed here for one night and my room was at the very end of the hallway so it was very quiet. The bed was comfortable and the shower had fantastic water pressure which was a nice surprise. The internet was really slow. I liked that the mini refrigerator worked really well and so did the microwave. The breakfast was...

Great place to stay ,clean ,friendly, new and great breakfast. Make sure you open the windows at night to hear the clip clip of the Amish horses. Very soothing. The hotel is conveniently located to the town. Cost of a stay here is very fair. Parking and general area very safe.indoor pool is spotless

The Van Buren was a great place to stay. We were able to get a two room suite at a very reasonable rate. The room included a small kitchen-like area complete with sink, coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator in between a nice sitting area (sofa, chair, table and 2 chairs) and the bedroom. The wi-fi connection was fine, though we...

I was disappointed by the breakfast. It was very blah. I ended up going out to breakfast the next morning. It is a good location, just a short drive to town. The hotel rooms are average. They need to have more of the luggage carts.
