The price was right and we were tired. It was late and cold and so we stayed the night. The place was pretty empty and because there were renovations going on we were on a far side of the motel. They had better be planning some renovation for the room we slept in. Certainly hope that the carpet has not been there since 1960 but it sure smelled like it. We found that the position of the ( really noisy! ) airconditioner in relation to the bed resulted in the air blowing directly on us. I took out the dresser drawers to build a barrier so that we would not be in a draft all night. The white noise from the A/C created enough noise to lull us to sleep. The indoor pool looked impressive but it was freezing outside so we skipped that pleasure. The "hot breakfast" was somewhat better than expected and so we skipped the pleasure of Dunkin Donuts which was right across the parking lot.

Room Tip: Try to get a room closer to the management area

This was our second stay here so we knew it was not 5 stars. When I made the reservation they told me the room I wanted was being renovated from Monday to Thursday which was ok since we checked in on Friday . The wallpaper was peeled next to the bed , painted chipped on door jam between the rooms and a wire tired to under the pullout mattress to hold it together. I actually went across the street to Kmart and bought an air mattress for the 6 yr old so she would not have to sleep on it for fear of it collapsing on her. The location can't be beat and the waterpark is still only 12 dollars a person.

enjoyed every moment I was here, great staff and location. Miss Chantel was very helpful.I was here shopping with my fiance and Chantel recommended us many locations to shop and places to eat. The location was perfect, dead in the middle of everything and we didn't have to travel far.

This motel is definitely not one of the nicer places we've stayed, and at first seemed a bit disappointing. But after staying a night, changed my mind. This motel has the important things- an extremely soft, comfy bed and pillows, nice shower, warmth and a great water park and pool! Our room was so nice and warm, so cozy and comfy, it was wonderful. The indoor water park is fantastic- fun for the kids, yet relaxing for the adults because of the smaller size- I could watch both of my kids from in the hot tub! The waterpark changing/shower area is top notch. You can bring food or have food delivered and eat upstairs, what a great deal. The motel could use some work, or some free coffee, things like that... but as far as comfort and coziness, I give it a thumbs up!

Checked in earlier this week with my grandmother for leisure and Christmas shopping. The room could use a lot of remodeling but like it said in the title the service is what I paid for, The manager and front desk agent were excellent and really could not have gotten a service like that anywhere else. Dalia checked me in with an enormous smile and greeted us as if we were VIP's. The manager Channel helped us with luggage and told us where to go to save money and gave us a coupon to rockvale outlets. I save a lot of money and completed my shopping. Thanks a lot girls, keep up the good work.

We stayed at the Lancaster, pa budiet host inn and it was a fantastic visit. From walking in the front door to checking out the next day the customer service was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful when we was asking questions about local places to eat. We had a great breakfast. The rooms are very clean. The beds are so comfortable with really wonderful pillows not flat over used ones. The pool is beautiful . We was treated like family and we would highly recommend a stay here. And if you enjoy waterparks, they have waterside too. The location is great. Thank you so much for a wonderful, restful, relaxing night stay.
