“What a dump!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Don't believe the friends and family reviews this place is a dump. I don't mind an older hotel but this place has not been maintained. The sign out front says clean and cozy rooms ... Wrong on both counts. The place is in such bad shape I can't believe the board of health let's it stay open. There are holes in the walls that aren't patched cracks in the tile, tub sinks and walls in the bathroom. The light over the sink is bare bulbs screwed into a rusty fixture. The only thing that I can say positive is that the beds were pretty comfortable. The problem though is that the bedding is old and gross. Don't stay here I don't care how cheap it is you're better sleeping in the car.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

Kind of outdated motel. We loved the way of parking in front of our room, but the rooms were very outdated, although management tried their best. The bed was too old I think. Breakfast was almost non existant. We took a coffee and left. Wifi only available while sitting on a particular spot on the bench in front of the room. Oh well...It was cheap...and we booked this place because most other motels/hotels were already booked when we arrived in this region.

Older motel, but clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly and accommodating . We would stay again, next time we go to Lancaster. Only bad thing was the continental breakfast wasn't available until 8:00 am on Sundays, and we were leaving early to beat the traffic.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We have stayed at this motel for years. We come to an annual sporting event that the time varies, but is usually in late Summer early Fall. We have seen three different owners since we've been coming and these are, by far, the most accommodating. They are friendly, helpful, and always on site. Yes this isn't the most up to date facility, but for us it works quite well. It's clean and serves the purpose for our visit. We just need someplace to shower and spend the night so amenities aren't a priority. Our room did have a small refrigerator (very handy) and microwave. A small continental breakfast is served and was a good way to start our morning. It's conveniently located in town with several restaurants nearby.

I did not make a reservation and was looking for a place to sleep. The price was a bit high for a small space that was very out dated. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. I assume the "staff" was the owner.

We didn't actually stay at this motel. We booked in for one night and paid with credit card upfront. We did request to see the room which was basic but this is okay with us provided it is clean. On getting ready for bed we turned our sheets back to find numerous hairs and crumbs present. We informed the manager who came to look and agreed that they were dirty and offered us a different room or new sheets. We had totally lost confidence in the motel, explained that it was not personal but we couldn't trust the cleanliness. We were then told to leave but we would not get a refund. We paved and asked if we could again discuss our position. We were extremely reasonable but now the manager stated that the sheets were clean and she had changed them herself. She actually went on to say that we could have put them their ourselves. It was about 8pm, we had only just booked in, we had no alternative accommodation and the only thing we would have gained would have been our own money back. I requested the address of the owners so that I could write to them but this was also refused. I was appalled by how we were treated and would certainly not recommend this motel. We managed to find another motel and they told us they had heard similar stories.
