My office manager and I stayed here for a governmental conference. We had a great rate. The parking was a little hard to find, but that was the only (very minor) issue I had. This is not a cookie-cutter experience of modern corporate lodging. This is a step back in time, but still a step up from everyday antiseptic dullness.... More

I stayed here for two nights because I was in York for a wedding. Now, God only knows why people would travel to York for fun, but if you do so, this hotel is probably the best one in the town. However, I found it to be a little pricey for being in York, Pennsylvania--and we got a discounted rate... More

We stayed at the Yorktowne for three nights while vacationing in the area. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of downtown York. Our rooms were spacious, tastfully decorated and clean. The service staff were helpful and kind. The restored historic lobby is a perfect place for an after dinner drink. I found nothing at all to complain about... More

The Yorktowne is an okay historical hotel. It reminded me of a bed breakfast with the decor and the personal staff touch. However, it is in desperate need of a renovation. It does not have any of your modern convenience that other historical hotels have. I stayed in the junior suite. It was a fairly large and clean. However, the... More

We traveled to York, PA for a combination business/leisure trip. The Yorktowne is an elegant, old style downtown hotel. The lobby is beautiful and the rooms were very large and well kept. I bid on the room there thru priceline and was able to secure a pretty good price, making it on whole, a great value.

My wife and I had a planned day trip to York and decided to stay for the night. We stayed at the Yorktowne in a Junior Suite. We had a great room on the 8th floor. It was beautifully decorated and the staff was helpful. We also had dinner in the Commonwealth room. The restaurant reminded us of a classic... More

Very nice old hotel in downtown York. A good value compared to the Lancaster Area. Room size is large. Rooms were comfortable. Staff was nice. Only real complaint that bed and tv were in separate rooms. I recommend the hotel especially if you get a deal on Priceline.

This is how my room stay started, a huge cockroach (not a roach-I know the difference between the two) in my bathtub. I was very surprised because the lobby is beautiful. When I initially walked into my room I was satisfied with what I saw. I didn't notice any fowl odors or major cleanliness issues. Once I checked the bathroom... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed. The staff was very nice and helpful. The parking garage can present a problem for dual wheel full-size pickup trucks but the young men did a great job accommodating us. The restaurant (Commonwealth Room) was outstanding although quite expensive. The cafe was very nice and reasonably priced. I... More

The positives . . . valet parking was $5 and very convenient. Our room (as far as I know, it was a standard room) was very spacious with a sofa and large desk area. The room had a lot more character than a typical chain hotel. The negatives . . . the front desk area smelled of cigarette smoke (coming... More
