We have typically stayed at this location every year while visiting Lancaster.
The property is in the middle of the outlet action with restaurants close buy.
The room was well a room. Furniture and fixtures are becoming quite dated. Cleanliness was about what you would expect from the brand. The one major inconvenience with the room was the bathroom. The toilet needed several flushes just to get rid of waste. There is a fridge and microwave in the room however the fridge acted more of a freezer with no apparent way of controlling the temperature.
The kids enjoyed the pool but commented that more shade would be welcomed.
Breakfast on the first day, Saturday was a challenge. It was very busy and the attendant was having a challenge in keeping up. The pancake maker was out of order and appeared to have been that way for at least a week. The second day where the hotel was less busy was a little better, however supplies appeared to have been diminished.
The real disappointment this trip was the staff. My interaction with all of the staff, from the front desk, to housekeeping to the breakfast attendant were all less than great. All of the staff appeared to be unhappy with their roles. After 30 plus years in the service industry this responsibility must be that of management.
Will we stay here again? Probably.
Do I feel that you get value for what you pay? Not so much.
Special call out to James who was doing his best however you could tell he was overwhelmed.
