We saw the photos posted of cracked wall paper and stained bathtubs and were a little worried, but our worries ended the minute we walked in and saw the brass railings, carpeted stairs, and huge old fashioned lobby featuring chandeliers, a baby grand, bookshelves, and nooks defined by settees and comfortable chairs. The hotel was downtown in an historic district... More

When we got into the room we found that there was a visitor dead in our bath. A cockroach we reported it at reception and the reaction was disappointing. The receptionist said "he won't be please at having to clean it up" meaning the person taking the bags to the room. (We were delighted with the visitor) No apology or... More

I chose the Yorktowne because of the proximity to a business meeting in downtown York. The hotel was charming - you could tell it had once been a pretty swanky place. I was quite surprised to get an actual metal key for the guest room. The room I had was clean, but there were stains on the carpet and sofa.... More

I have stayed in this hotel 4 times. I really like it, BUT I think I need to say this. This time I feel I must say something. When I went in the bathroom I once again had to tighten the toilet seat down. Additionally, the light above the sink was burned out. I told the desk in the morning.... More

Stayed here for one night. Musty smelling lobby (can see how grand it would have been in the past) Long corridors, reminiscent of The Shining. Bedroom was awful, stained carpets, stained sofa, torn non shutting curtains, peeling wallpaper, alarm clock and TV from the 80s. Bathroom was the same, cracked basin, questionable looking bath and shower. Overall tired and outdated.... More

If you want a room that is out of the ordinary and has that look of well preserved history this is your place. Rates are competitive with local motels and the experience is unforgettable. Your within blocks of the city market, baseball stadium, many pubs and restaurants as well as local revolutionary historic sites located just blocks away. Two restaurants... More

I was one of the few in my group who opted to drive in and out for conference. The others stayed overnight. I had originally thought it was a shame that I could not manage the overnight. After listening to my colleagues horror stories about their night at this hotel, I was grateful I had passed. The food was good.... More

This historic hotel was the place to stay for Presidents and celebrities for many of its past 90 years. Everyone from Sinatra to Nixon stayed here, It has the feel of a grand old hotel, and some nice features. The rooms were very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The problem was that the touches one would expect in an... More

I checked in at 9 pm and was checking out 7 am the next day. The room was large and the bed was really comfortable - the good. See Adam P review to add to my review. It had the smallest bathroom - the sink was in another room - and the lowest toilet seat every. Anyway, the next morning... More

Historic - yes. That means a place much in need of a near total rehab to fix things such as: peeling wallpaper and plaster in the room, stains on the shabby carpet, disgusting looking stains on the bathroom ceiling, scuffed doors, tired furniture, stairs from the street, etc.. The pillows are very hard and the bedding and towels are below... More
