“NOT THE FANCIEST, BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

If you are Lancaster this a very central hotel. Very nice pool area and game room. The rooms are average and not the cleanest I've stayed at. They do offer breakfast included with the price. Eggs, waffles or French Toast. You are 10 minutes from sight and sound theater, bird in hand and intercourse pa.

Do not bother. Terrible staff, bad food. Unclean rooms. Maids even hate the manager.
Woman in charge of restaurant thinks she is doing u a favor working there. The only thing that is good is the location.
In the service there were better accommodations in Iraq then this hotel. I am amazed this place passes the health code inspections. Also that it remains in business is quite shocking.

I've been staying here since I was a kid and never really had a bad experience. It's definitely not the most modern hotel, but location is great. My kids also love the pools, game room, and playground. Breakfast is also pretty good.

Room Tip: Stay away from country view; you'll end up with flies in your room and it's noisy.

Better then average hotel with a GREAT swimming area. Indoor and outdoor pool, nice hot tub seats about 6 - 8 people. Great for couples. Cable, fridge, pool table ping pong ball. Plenty of parking. Nice location, next to Dutch Wonderland. Restaurant on site. Not dirty but lived in. If you ant top $$ hotel don't bother but if you enjoy life and little things don't bother you place to stay.
This is an old hotel.Staff seem very nice, hands on help if not busy. No elevator.do have a Jacuzzi room but have to ask for it. Summer time plenty to offer, tennis, volley ball shuffle board beside 2 pools, tanning beds , sauna. not a GREAT hotel that is expensive but a real nice one for working class joe. They also have a bar / lounge for late night drinks.

Room Tip: No elevator so ask for 1st floor also take outside view next to pool instead of parking lot view.

I must say I was a little nervous about staying here, however I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff were great and vert helpful. The rooms are older however they are clean. I did pull back the blankets on my bed but found no stains or bugs. YAH!!!. The wifif was very fast and the tv had a lot of channels to pick from. So please give this little old hotel a try. It is worth that for sure.

After reading several negative reviews about this hotel I was apprehensive about not staying there. However, when we got there my husband and I were pleasantly surprised the room is old old furniture it's an older hotel but the room was very clean. The hotel customer service was wonderful can't really ask for much more for a weekend getaway very inexpensive paid $300 for two nights for two people this price included a free dinner for both of us at the hotel,free breakfast buffet for both nights, and a tour of the Amish Village. Can't ask for much more. If your expecting luxury then no this wouldn't be the hotel for you but if you're just looking for a quick weekend getaway for couples or even for families the hotel does offer an indoor pool and it's just fine, In my opinion that is.

My family visited during peak season . The location was great. Close to attractions and shopping. The motel needs a lot of up dates. The door lock was broken on our room and we had to wait for someone to fix our door before we were able to get in. The breakfast was really good . It was fresh and the wait staff was very nice. there are so many newer places to stay that I don't think we will stay there again.
