I was traveling in the area, and I did not want to spend that much money on one night. My expectations were not that high, but the staff was really friendly, and the room was terrific. The night was peaceful, the beds were comfy. I had a nice, free breakfast at this motel, and enjoyed their service as well. This... More

I had to work out of town and I was driving by and spotted the Relax Inn. It didn't look so bad from the outside plus it was right off Memorial Drive, which is near the mall (don't let the location fool you). It was $50 plus tax for the night. I didn't have high expectations (ex: swimming pool, Internet,... More

Get out and dont get near it. It is filthy, out dated and evidence of bugs.We stayed here a few yr ago but since our relatives who live in Lancaster told us it was a well known for drug activity and had some Meth labs and purse thieves busted there, we opted to stay at the Holiday Express. We peaked... More

Maid service very spotty. They might clean your room and might not. Rooms need painted (paint doesn't cost that much guys)....looker like it hadn't been painted in years. Maids might want to look at the walls in the bathroom cause there are boogers stuck to the walls....yuck. last thing there needs to be some sort of light by the beds.... More

We called for a room close to our campsite we were headed to in the morning! The hotel staff was not that polite and didnt even know the rates when I called in. When I got there the towels were not clean and the fridge and microwave were just in a pile on the floor. The top lock was not... More

Bed bugs and roaches. We had change rooms 3 times because of the lack of cleanliness. We have traveled around the world and have NEVER seen a hotel like this. Do NOT stay here!!! We got stuck here due to last minute travel plans.

It's called the "Relapse Inn" by locals for a reason. Not a nice place to stay in at all. It's a place for junkies and hard partiers. Definitely don't being your kids to this place. If you are in the Lancaster area, stay at Shaw's, a historic bed and breakfast, or in one of the nicer chain hotels near the... More
