Lori at the front desk was awesome. She was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. She helped us located an AT&T store and a great place to eat. We definitely will go back. Lancaster is such a clean town, everything you want is within a mile, the mall is within walking distance.

It's been years since I stayed at a Holiday Inn. The choice by us was this or a Baymont Inn. Three of us stayed in a "suite" (2 queen beds and a sitting area with a fold down couch) The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and it was fairly quiet. Breakfast and free parking and WiFi was included... More

Could not have been better considering Lancaster is a small town. Pleasantly surprised by the staff and cleanliness. Had some confusion with the booking as I booked and my wife duplicated it but the staff promptly sorted it out. If you go to L-caster stay there.

The workout facilities were in excellent condition. I was so disappointed that I failed to pack a swimsuit because the pool was clean and well maintained. Mornings began with a delicious... More
