We just stayed here for a family wedding and were very disappointed in the rooms. There was a terrible smell and our clothes felt damp after hanging in the room for awhile (we had several rooms). It was apparent that the air conditioner and ventilation was not working properly. I inquired at the front desk and they seemed surprised that... More

Stayed here for three nights recently while on vacation. The location is about twenty minutes from Hershey and about 15 minutes from Lancaster. There is nothing around the hotel so if you need anything there is a small town about three miles away. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel was very clean. Room was clean but not much...

We stayed last weekend as it was close to a wedding venue we attended. The first thing I liked was we were way past the cutoff date for reduced rates for the block of rooms for the wedding but they still honored the rate. We checked in early....no problem. Rooms were really nice. We had a first floor room with... More

Stayed while seeing our daughter perform at the Dutch Apple theatre in Lancaster area. Room was nice except for the very small toilet/tub area. The nightlight was in the sink area and did shine in your face at night. Clean. Mattress was very comfortable!

The main part of the room had enough light around the edge of the room. Three lamps were on the switch by the door; including the two bedside lamps. The light in the bathroom was over the doorway. Very little light reach the shower stall. The vanity is in the main room. The room was clean and housekeeping did a... More

We stay here when visiting our daughter at Etown. It's close to campus and rooms are celan. The rooms were on small size, but staff was nice and courteous. There are not a lot of options in immediate area and does the job for a night or two.

The location was my favorite part of the stay. Hotel is in a rural setting but only a minute from the highway. Hotel was clean but the room smelled a little off, maybe a former smoking room? Our window was cracked and fixed with packaging tape. Breakfast was good, staff was pleasant. Decent hotel but a little overpriced.
