I would not hesitate to stay here again next time I am in the Lancaster area. The rate was reasonable, $43.29 with tax when I used a coupon. The previous night, I paid more than twice that at Budget Host for much worse service. There was free coffee at all hours and the staff were all courteous. My only complaint... More

My husband traveled to Lancaster for work and checked into this hotel. He said it didn't seem very clean but still needed a place to stay so was going to take his chances. After the first night he woke up with a swollen eye from something. Sure enough he found bugs in his bed! He told the desk who claimed... More

I read the older reviews that were not so great, but STILL thought, well...maybe they made some improvements so I called about booking a room. Whomever answered appeared to be very upset that they were at work that day. I tried to get past her attitude by asking her about the room and help with potentially booking a room online... More

No continental breakfast, as they promised. When we complained to the hostess, a young girl, she said it isn't her fault. She was so mean and careless about the situation. Others customers complained about the bad service and even one said that when the cleaning people went to her room, they took her phone charger. I strongly DON'T RECOMMEND THIS... More

We arrived for an early Memorial Day weekend of shopping and meeting up with friends. It was warm and we soon found out both rooms lacked air conditioning. The clerk said the place was fully booked but in any case most of the rooms had the same problem. Fortunately, it got cold + the window opened, so no big deal... More

Woke up with bedbug bites all over! Asked clerk for another room and they said they had complaints from other guests, so another room wouldn't make a difference (meaning their entire hotel is infested!) There was some kind of bug in the ice bucket, there was mold all around the seal of the refrigerator. The desk clerk was unable to... More

So it is no secret that these places are cheap for a reason. I don't know what it is about the SAME motel just a few blocks away being the same, but different at the same time. At this location, it is easier access to the "complimentary pool" at the neighboring Howard Johnson i believe. This place was no better... More

We needed a hotel to stay at coming back from Philly and it was already 3 am, so we went with the cheapest one in the roomsaver magazine. Didn't start off too bad, ugly room, dirty walls, but whatever we just needed a place to sleep. Got up this morning, and went to take a shower, an inch of dust... More
