This was my first time in York so staying at a classic downtown hotel was a great experience. While the hotel is definitely showing its age (rooms, fitness equipment and TV's are dated) the rooms were good size, very clean, quiet, and the hotel staff were friendly, helpful and really put in the extra effort to make your stay enjoyable...

We just returned from our second time at the Yorktown Hotel. Though delightful with its antique decor and old fashioned charm, the place needs updating and a good cleaning! The staff was very accommodating, helpful and pleasant. However, that couldn't make up for the problems with our room. There was a "closet" with a miniature toilet and a dripping shower.... More

Had never stayed right downtown before; this was a 3-day seminar and this was the host hotel, so this is where you're staying to attend. GPS puts you right to the front door, no place to park there, follow the signage up and around and back down and alley and to the other side, and then just an unload zone... More

Having stayed in other vintage in-city hotels we were somewhat apprehensive at first, but the conference we were attending was headquartered here so we went ahead and booked it. What a surprise! Our room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable and the staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. I already knew my vehicle would not fit... More

Great hotel in historic York, PA. Excellent staff, friendly and attentative. Rooms are large and comfortable. Excellent hotel to hold an event with. Thomas and the cattering staff could not be beat! Food was very good and the service even better.

Having read other tripadvisor reviews we were hesitant to book this hotel and shouldn't have. In its day it may have been a great place to stay, after it was restored it might have been, and while it's well managed the owners need to either refurbish it or close it. For starters the TV in our room was a color... More

What a shame that this hotel cannot look like the management pictures. It is old and in need of repairs in every aspect. Went there this past weekend for a conference. First thing noticed was the musty smell in the lobby. Elevators old, hall carpeting dirty and the halls smelled. The room not at all like the pictures, small smelly,... More

I stayed here for approximately 30 minutes. While it took me forever to find the "parking garage", aka the city garage across the street, i then went inside. The place is falling apart piece by piece if you just look around. Then the front desk staff was decently nice. They sent me up to my room and then I turned... More

Was apprehensive based on previous reviews, but an overall good experience when attending a wine tasting recently. The lobby was elegant if not a little worn in spots on closer inspection. The hotel is outdated but clean with a helpful staff. Kind of like staying at Grandma's - outdated but clean & comfortable. Our room had a bedroom and sitting... More

Came to the Hotel with a large dance group. What a beautiful historic hotel! Parking was a little confusing but when we finally reached our destination we were greeted by Gena. Even thou we were slightly annoyed she assured us we would enjoy our stay and we did! She made us feel very welcomed. She gave us recommendations on places... More
