My husband, son and I were in Lancaster for the weekend. I usually spend around $100 a night, and I prefer to spend it at the Hampton Inn. Unfortunately, three weeks before our trip it seemed every place was booked except for the undesirable Days Inn and Econo-lodges. Westfield Inn looked respectable, and it was only a few miles from the Landis Valley Farm Museum, so that was a plus. It was also in our usual price range. When we arrived to check in on a Saturday evening after dark, there was a man loitering at the entrance. It turned out he was pan handling and approached my husband for money. Our room was on the second floor. I asked about the elevator, but there is no elevator to the second floor so you have to haul your luggage and sleepy toddler up a flight of stairs. It seemed the hotel was almost deserted, and we were the only people on the entire second floor. The bed was hard, the pillows completely deflated, and we didn't have enough bath towels for the number of people in our room. The entire hotel has an outdated dark green/mauve color scheme which highlights the dinged up walls, worn out stairs, and older amenities. Half the lights in the room didn't work. The room was clean enough, though. We slept quietly as there was no one on our floor and the huge hotel didn't have a lot of guests. There is a complimentary breakfast that is extremely basic- juice, coffee, cold cereal, bagels, and doughnuts. If you wanted a better breakfast, there is a Bob Evans across the street, and a Sheetz just up the road with excellent coffee and lots of to-go options.
I wouldn't stay here again, and if I had to do it over, I would either be cautious to book my hotel at least a month in advance so I would have better choices, or else spend an extra $50-100 and go someplace nice.
Avoid the second floor unless it is part of your fitness plan to haul your luggage and kids up a fli...
