Lancaster or Harrisburg area motels

We are planning a trip there the end of Sept. What are some nice places to stay? A place that doesn't cost over 100.00 a room, but is very clean and well kept. Our kids are spending one day at Hershey park so any hotels in this area are okay as long as they aren't dumps. Where would it be best to buy crafts, Lancaster or another area? We want to get out into the country to do some sight seeing so is it possible to buy crafts at their homes? How far is it to Gettsburg from Lancaster? Our plans are to take a guided tour, but wonder if they take you in buses or do they drive around with you and tell you the facts in your vehicle? Also, what is the best way to get to this area from Niagara Falls?

Check out the Gettysburg (that's how it's spelled) and Lancaster Forums. A lot of great info there for you.

Directions....well, you want to end up coming down I 81 since it's a great highway with Lancaster off it, and Gettysburg and Harrisburg along it. It also has wonderful mountain views all around....amazing.

You might also google to see if there are any events on the island in the Susquehanna River which runs along Harrisburg. There's a bridge to the island and events held there....wonderful mansions along the river too.
