I had a recommendation for this hotel/motel and was seriously disappointed for the price. The place nickels and dimes you to death with $5.00 charge for Wi-fi and .25 for ice. When they told me I had room #120 they said it was "nice". Well if nice means grandma's faded pink chairs and the tiniest TV for a hotel known to man I guess that means nice. I suppose they tried by putting pink sheets on the beds and it looked like they tried to update the bathroom. The flowing waterfall/fountain outside was the only redeeming thing about this place. When I asked the owner where I could find a local spot for a good salad they had no idea and recommended Pizza Hut & Panera. ugh

Rooms are clean, furniture is older, as said in another review pillows are not the best but the staff is friendly and pets are welcome. I had no problem being it was clean and comfortable.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel 3 or 4 times. At first I thought the rooms were ok even though they could have been a little better "kept", but for the price they were adequote. However, the last time we stayed there, we were there for 4 days and 3 nights and our room was NEVER cleaned even though I called every day to remind them. By the time we got back, we were told each night that the cleaning staff was gone and that I had to go down to the lobby myself to get clean towels. When I checked out I asked to speak to the manager and I thought that seeing as we'd been there so many times in the past couple of months he would at least offer some kind of compensation (a free night in a clean room on our next visit would have been nice), all he said was that "he was on it". Basically I could tell he wasn't going to do anything. He told me he hoped it wouldn't "deter me" from coming back, but you can be sure I will NEVER go back there. I'd rather pay the $15 or $20 more a night to stay somewhere that will guarantee me a clean room (like the Hampton Inn).

Seriously disappointed , in response to the recent review please allow me to state the following facts. We are a small property and try to treat our costomers well , the housekeeping staff only works so many hours a day. When people leave their do not disturb sigh out all day , we honor their wishes.

Price was good. Room furniture very old. New pillows and comforters needed for beds, VERY CLUMPY OR OLD pillows Sink has scum around the handle. . Mold was on ceiling above shower. Maids need to do a better job cleaning. But for the price what do you expect

I stayed at this family owned motel while traveling through Pennsylvania on vacation. The location is convenient to the sights and factory tours I was going to in York and is right off of I-83. It is an older property, but the room was clean and nicely decorated. There was a good selection of cable TV channels and there was also a DVD player which was a surprise. There was a slightly musty smell when I entered the room, but this became less noticeable while I was in the room and wasn't a problem. The bathroom was small, but clean and the shower had good pressure. The only problem was road noise since the rear windows of the rooms face the I-83 highway and you can hear the traffic going by at all hours. This might bother you if you are a light sleeper, but it didn't really bother me too much. There is a diner in the same parking lot as the motel which is convenient, but I didn't try it so I can't comment on the food. I would stay at this motel again.
