Nothing special, but the cost is low and the rooms are clean. No amenities at all. If that works for you, it is half the cost of chain hotels in this area. Second time we have stayed here. No issues, just keep in mind that it is an old facility, designed for the 1950's traveler.

I've stayed at this motel many times in the past as I often go to Elizabethtown. The place is very good value for the price. The rooms are clean, nice, and the the beds usually fairly comfortable. However, the bed in the room I had this last time (#34) was awful. It was extremely hard and uncomfortable. I normally prefer... More

This was a perfect stop over. We just needed 1 night and stopped in without reservation. We asked for a room at the end hoping it would be quieter and it was. Reasonable price and very clean in all areas. I would stay again and appreciated the previous posts about he cleanliness. It was the reason we chose it.

The room was very clean BUT the mattresse was very very hard my back was hurting after the first night and then for the next few nights they need new mattresses and they also need some kind of service for the TV if you have kids there is nothing for them to watch !!!

The motel is old but was very clean. We had an issue with flies but think it's because the door might have been left open while being cleaned. The bed was very comfortable. The price was good. Many of the neighboring motels/hotels were triple the price. Since we only needed a place to sleep this place was adequate.

I review based on common features found in all motels to be fair to all. The room, while Spartan, was scrupulously clean (yay). There was a small fridge and microwave. Furnishings were sparse - a desk and chair as well as a bed and 1 nightstand.. No sitting chair or table. The bed, while clean, was creaky. Every time I... More

Just wanted to say what a great stay we had this past weekend. The room was so clean. We arrived a little early, and we appreciate you rushing to get our room ready, so we didn't have to leave. We will definitely come back and stay next time we go to Lancaster to go Antique shopping. Thanks so much!! My... More

This is the second trip to the area for me, stayed here both times. In the summer season, things book up fast and the prices are pretty high in name brand hotels. This is a great alternative, very retro and very affordable. The rooms are basic but clean, the staff is competent and flexible. No frills, but a good stay.... More

This little motel was great. I just needed a place to crash while in Hershey for a festival. My room looked recently updated and was extremely clean. Micro and fridge in room was nice. Bathroom looked remodeled as well. Check in and check out ladies were great as well. The only thing that annoyed me was check out is 11am.... More
