I stayed for one night as a dry run for four nights I have booked for October. The motel is 17 minutes from Maple Grove Raceway with very reasonable rates, especially around the race dates. It is a very old school motel, but nicely kept. I stayed in room #20, which was very clean with a comfortable layout and a... More

Stayed at the Amish Penn Motel last week after reading a review on TripAdvisor that said it was good. Well, I have to say, we were very let down. Review said it was old but kept very well. Upon driving up the motel looks wonderful. Opening the door, the room was small and dark but was clean. The carpet, although... More

Read other reviews and thought I would try this. It's just a simple model for overnight sleep, nothing fancy, just a room with a bathroom which I would mind. The thing is it's not quite clean, didn't want to sleep in the bed, saw some hair! My last day, I flipped the sheets and boys saw lots of hair and... More

My wife and i just finished a vacation in the Poconos. We had to leave the resort but wanted to drag out our trip one extra day down in Lancaster county. Since I had spent a fortune on the resort I wanted the cheapest room possible for our one night extension. I pulled up some hotels in Denver and Morgantown... More

My wife and I have been staying at The Penn Amish Motel for almost 20 years and have NEVER had a bad experience with Bob and Purni the owners, or with any of the accommodations. We love being a few minutes walk from Renningers when the outdoor market opens in the wee hours of the morning on Sundays.We never felt... More

This is a simple little motel, nothing fancy but was a great place to stay. The rooms had a microwave and a refrigerator, also offered free wifi. Owners are very friendly. The locations was perfect, located close to the green dragon flea market, and just a short drive to other locations in Lancaster, such as Bird in Hand, and Lititzs.This... More

You want Amish Country go to Holmes County, OH!!!!! Just stayed for three nights and found the place to be clean, nice firm mattress, renovated bathroom and recently replaced carpet. Ok,... More

Sure it is cheap, but you really don't even get what you pay for. The sheets and towels were not really clean and the room felt unclean. Though it's cheap, the basics still needs to be in place to charge a fee. Note, this is far from Amish country.

If you are traveling to the Pennsylvania Dutch country, the Penn Amish is a great place to stay. It is not a fancy place, doesn't have the amenities of the big chains, but the rates are reasonable, clean comfortable rooms. The staff is Pa. Dutch oriented. Which means that they are friendly, very accommodating, knowledgeable about the area, glad to... More

This was a great inexpensive place to stay. It is what it is nothing fancy. We were traveling with 6 youths and we rented the family room for them - 3 double beds - perfect! The total bill was about $150 for 2 rooms, I've paid that for 1 room. I will return if I'm in the same circumstance again!
