Went for a medical conference.dining room decent. hallways smell like mold. Room door is made of plywood quality (like in your home inside doors). Did not feel protected. The golf course was pretty and the front desk people were very nice. The cleaning people came into our room even when we had the do not disturb sign on the door.

Visited the host resort for a conference. While it has a very large conference room, thus good for meetings, the place overall is an eyesore with little to offer. If you haven't been, the host resort is a hulking monster on route 30. It does not at all blend into the serene Lancaster countryside. However it has plenty of parking... More

My wife and I had a terrific stay at the Lancaster Host Resort. They have a great staff. Danielle and Yvette were super friendly and very accommodating. They truly made us feel welcome. The room was very clean. Spotless. We LOVED the breakfast buffet. This was an excellent choice for us. The next time we visit Lancaster County, we will... More

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

We took a chance on a Groupon offer for this hotel in Feb 2015. 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

Because of this, check in was very easy!!!...The hotel itself was huge, it... 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!
