My family of 6 made a visit to the Inn on April 5th. The only thing enjoyed was the water park. If not for the park for the kids, I would not have been interested in staying. Linens were not clean and neither was the bathroom. There was a small fridge inside the room, but with the amount of frost... More

I'm sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations on your last stay with us. We certainly would have liked to have the chance to correct any items you had a concern with during your stay, rather than hearing about them after your check out. We strive very hard to make each guests stay as pleasant as possible.... More

My son is diagnosed with very severe food allergies and has had anaphylaxic reactions to contact allergens. We don't travel since we have learned the level of sensitivity. With reservation and the thought that this isn't going to be possible, I contacted the manager, Ryan, a couple weeks prior to our planned visit to ask about accommodations to help prevent,... More

Upon arriving at the room we were confused to see there were only two queen beds in the room. Our reservation was for a family of 5 in a room that said it would accommodate 5. When I asked the manager for a roll away bed for our 5th family member, she refused saying the hotel was booked. I pushed... More

We really wanted to go the indoor water park so we decided to stay at the Budget Host since you have to stay at 1 of 3 hotels, just to be able to go to the indoor water park. The room was clean, no problems there. The water park was fun. If your used to Great Wolf Lodge and paying... More

Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay with us. I'm glad to hear that you and your family had a great time at the Caribbean Indoor Water Park.

We live in Harrisburg and travel to this hotel each year to enjoy their Caribbean Indoor Waterpark. This trip was amazingly great for us. 1st as we walked into the lobby to get checked in we notice the new paint, new check in desk and the new lobby furniture. It was very modern and fresh looking.

We visited our relatives in Harrisburg, Pa. from Ohio. They surprised us by taking us to Lancaster to this hotel and indoor waterpark. We had a nice two bedroom suite and passes to the indoor waterpark. It was snowing outside but inside the waterpark the temperature was excellent. The hotel was clean and had a nice full continental hot breakfast... More

We stayed here a few days before Christmas so that we could take the kids to the indoor waterpark as part of their present. The hotel does not blow you away with décor, but it is a Budget Inn, and the rooms were large and clean which is most important to me. The bathroom lacked counter space but the bathroom... More
