Excellent location for a trip to Ohio Amish country. Many shops and a few restaurants within walking distance. Room was clean, but a bit “musty” smelling. Plenty of parking on site. We didn’t take advantage of the free breakfast, however the coffee was hot, fresh and available all day. Staff was friendly, and accommodating. No daily room service, but replenishments were delivered to the room daily, as needed.

I reserved a room and upon arrival around 5:00 pm 8/2 Monday, had to go down the road to another facility they own to register/get room card/ towels/ Upon checking room over found WET carpets and POOP in the toilet. I contacted the other facility where I registered they gave me a room at that facility. Offered me an apology of "Sorry". . NOT ONCE did an owner or manager contact me about the incident after three attempts of me contacting them. Very GROSS to say the least. I would not recommend this for lodging.

We stayed one night in this clean and quiet motel. It is within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. We didn't eat the continental breakfast but it definitely smelled great! The two employees that we interacted with were very friendly.

I tend to buy large bulky items while I’m in Berlin. I wanted to stay somewhere I could shop and run my stuff back to my room. Perfect little place for me. We got there early and they let us check in. Very sweet kind staff. Hotel is only 2 stories. It’s right by everything. The room itself is a typical older style room but we were happy with it. We had a refrigerator and free breakfast. The breakfast was grab and eat because of COVID and they didn’t have ice for the same reason. We called in a takeout order for dinner at the cash only Boyd’s and Wurthmann Restaurant and walked around the corner to pick it up...We couldn’t have been more pleased. I already booked another night for a December shopping trip.

Staff very sweet. Quick and easy check-in. Room large, and decorated with traditional Amish furniture/decor. The location was excellent, as it’s located in the square, in the middle of town, and within walking distance of all shopping. Breakfast is currently limited due to COVID.
