The place is falling apart. Pros: nice staff at check out, not too dirty. Cons: terrible noise, very bad water pressure. Rooms are in need of serious renovations, especially the bathroom. Horrible breakfast buffet. Just not worth the $160.

As a family we have been coming to this hotel for years and as usual when we travel to Lancaster we booked again. Booking process is simple and rooms were ready upon our arrival but much to our surprise, they were less then expected. Our bathroom was not cleaned, there was urine dried on the floor, and the tub and... More

There were many goods and just as many disappointments when staying at "The Host". So I am going to break everything down from making the reservation to our departure: RESERVATION PROCESS 1 out of 5 stars I would honestly give a 0 out of 5 but I'm staying with the trip advisor rating system. It took multiple attempts to call... More

I will start by saying that the staff were all helpful and very nice, knowledgeable about the area. we were told that there were only 2 guests rooms occupied for the time that we were there. That not only was amazing, but creepy because it is... More

Stains on walls, toilets, and sink! Paint is peeling from tub in huge pieces. I asked for another room and they were accommodating but the next room was freezing and not much better. Not worth a dime!

We are completing renovations to our guest room bathroom areas as time and funding allow, unfortunately this may not happen as quickly as we would like. It... More

My wife and I went to see a friend perform at the comedy club in the hotel (he was very funny). The service was awful, the food was terrible and they are evidently saving money by not heating the place.
