“Clean and fairly priced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Very clean room with no frills...bring your own shampoo and soap because they are minimally supplied. There was a small refrigerator and a microwave in the room which was a nice convenience if you need it. The highway is VERY busy and noisy, so you'd do best to request a room in the back building. Having said that though, the location is within miles of every attraction. The coffee at the continental breakfast was only thing worth taking advantage of. If you are looking for an inexpensive, clean place to stay for the night, this is it.

Room Tip: Request a room in the back building as the ones in the front are noisy because of the busy highway.

My mother and I recently stayed at this hotel, and we were VERY pleased. We looked at nearly every hotel in the area; we found them all extremely over priced, except this one. We could not have asked for a more perfect stay. We had two queen-sized beds, refrigerator, microwave, sofa--everything. It was wonderful. The room was very spacious, and the hotel was quiet. Our room was VERY clean, unlike the nightmare of a room we had at a neighboring hotel. Cleanest room in which we have ever stayed. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. If we ever head back to Lancaster again, this is DEFINITELY where we'll stay! We've been telling everyone else to stay here as well. Excellent stay. Very peaceful.

Easy location to find surrounded by higher class hotels and lots of restaurants. The hotel is small - both building and room - nothing elaborate - very simple hotel - small, clean, safe, quiet. The man in the reception area was very friendly and gracious. Easy to walk to other places along Lincoln Highway.

Room Tip: Had room in the back end so was not bothered by car lights coming in and out of the lot. Probably m...

This Motel is small, but the people who run it are very nice. The motel is super clean, and updated. The staff who I also believe own the place were very accommodating. They checked us in quickly and even let us know that the Motel has a deal with the Ramada right down the street. Anyone that stays here can use the Ramada pool at their convenience. I will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are very quiet and road noise is minimal.

$60 including taxes. This place looks simple from the outside and it is, but this place is better than all the places down the road which are either dumpy or pricey ($100-$150/nt.). Rooms here are clean, spacious. Fridge, microwave and good tv reception. Strong wifi.

Only quibble was lack of soap and shampoo in the bathroom....had some in my kit, though.....

US Highway 30 is the main road into the commercial section of Lancaster, as well as being part of the main thoroughfare between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. This road has innumerable choices for lodging, eating, shopping, and family entertainment; as well as a large conference center. As such, the area is crowded with both visitors and vehicles, and is not a place for either quiet or strolling. However, if you need a good price for basic lodging near this area, this motel is hard to beat. In particular, if (like us) you are attending a conference at the adjacent center, you can save money and hassle by staying here.

Our Room 26 was quite large; and included full bath, phone (free local calls), radio-alarm, AC, mini-fridge, microwave, and TV with 84 channels. It was clean and well-maintained, with minimal toiletries. Free amenities include parking, wi-fi (ask for the network code), and morning coffee & juice. The "continental breakfast" the place mentions is skimpy at best, so just take the money you saved and buy breakfast elsewhere. There is no pool or much of a lobby. Staff was friendly and professional. Smoking is prohibited in all indoor areas of the hotel.

The location right on this major road is a plus and a minus. Places you might want to go to -- outlet malls, theaters, Dutch Wonderland -- are close, as are innumerable places to shop and eat. But highway noise, including trucks, will be heard at all hours; and the road is NOT one you'd want to cross on foot.

There is only one entrance to this motel, and it can be missed if you are driving as fast as most drivers on US Highway 30. Be sure to slow down and signal your turn before entering. In addition, the parking area has several places where a large turning radius would be problematic. However, it can turn out that being a guest here will result in your getting a better parking space at the adjacent conference center than those who park there!

If all you need is a roof over your head while you enjoy Lancaster, this place is highly recommended.

We chose this hotel based on the price and also from a recommendation by a friend. The room was very clean and comfortable. The free wi-fi was an added bonus! We would definitely stay here again.
