Lodging on the Square
Ranked #5 of 10 Berlin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2017

Room was conveniently located facing main street with an excellent view of many shops, however I was very disappointed that the town went totally dead after 5 p.m. All the stores close and nowhere to shop in the evening. Room was clean and somewhat roomy but no privacy around the sink area in the bathroom, Breakfast had a very limited selection of items. The motel is ideality located in the main part of town for shopping in the daytime hours only.

Good Morning, it's great hearing what you thought of our inn during your recent stay. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts here on TripAdvisor. Some of the shops along Berlin's Main Street are open later than 5pm, especially during the summer and fall months. Some examples are Sol's in Berlin, they're open till 7pm, MainStreet Fudge & Popcorn are open till 8pm, restaurants like Boyd & Wurthmann and the Farmstead are open till 8pm. There are also businesses throughout the area that are open till 8pm, like Carlisle Gifts and Der Dutchman Restaurant of Walnut Creek, Dutch Valley Gifts & the Coop, Dutch Valley Meats & Dutch Valley Restaurant & Bakery of Sugarcreek. There's also the Amish Country Theater and the Ohio Star Theater that have shows that guests can enjoy, in the evenings. So, if a day of shopping is planned according to business hours a fulfilling day of shopping fun and activities can be had by all the guests. In addition to the Amish Country things that I mentioned there are also normal things like live music playing in various locations, operas, shows, festivals, fairs, movie theaters and even one of the last existing drive in theaters, there is so much more that can be suggested after 5pm. This is an amazing area if you come in and want to thoroughly enjoy your time visiting us. We've actually got many compliments on our hot breakfast which features scrambled eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits as well as make your own waffles, along with the basics of cereal, oatmeal, fruit and yogurt, etc., and is included in our fabulously affordable rates, so we apologize if you felt it was limited. There are many restaurants in the area that feature Amish Country All You Care to Eat Breakfast Buffets which range in price from $10-$15, we are happy to suggest some great places for our guests that prefer a larger selection for breakfast. In closing our area is considered the largest Amish settlement in the world and we are known for family values. The people in this area like to be home with their families in the evenings and on Sundays. Ironically, that is the reason most people come and visit this area and it's the same reason some people complain when they come here. Thank you for visiting us and have a wonderful week.

This hotel was right in downtown Berlin. You can walk to shops and restaurants. The room was clean. Saw previous reviews that they used to have cookies and popcorn available in the past. Now it is one cookie per person upon check in and if you want microwavable popcorn available for 50 cents. Breakfast was a little disappointing. They had scrambled eggs but no sausage or patties. They had biscuits and gravy and waffles. The rest is mostly continental breakfast with fruits, yogurt, donut holes, cereal and sliced bread.

We have stayed here before and it is very clean and convenient to all the shops. We usually stay at Zinks but they were full. The only difference is we missed the cookies and popcorn in the evenings. I do have one complaint and that was the bed. It was very soft and uncomfortable. If they get a new one it would be a great place!

Room Tip: The room we had was in the front on first floor. Traffic noise was heavy early but very quiet after...

Lodging on the Square is an excellent place to stay in Berlin. It is in the middle of the town and close to all the shopping and restaurants. The staff is friendly and accommodated our requests. The breakfast was good for motel fare. We would defiantly stay there again.
