The New Lantern Motel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Allegany
Reviewed January 1, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for the a couple of nights and it was great. Very nice owners and you can tell they care about their business. We travel a lot and this is one of the cleanest, quietest, and most comfortable places we have stayed. The updates were done very well. I hope to stay there again.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled as a couple

The New Lantern Motel certainly lives up to its motto, "Affordable, Comfortable, Relaxing." Jeff, Owner, and Anne, Manager, provide a spacious, clean, and pet friendly accomodation at a very reasonable price. They provide a warm friendly atmosphere when being away from home. It is truly large in value. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay, I had a group of 7 people on short notice. I found The New Lantern Motel had 3 rooms that would accommodate our group. All the rooms had new large flat panel tv's, new mattress, the carpets were freshly shampooed, there was fresh sealer and lines on the parking lot, refrigerator in the rooms and other niceties.
The owner was on premises, the manager and maintenance people were also on the premises. We saw them all in the evening, even in the rain, and we saw them again at 7 am when we got up to leave.
We stayed two days, for the price we could not be happier.

We were more than happy to come to the rescue when you and your group were in a pinch to find a place to stay, Richard. It's wonderful to know you were so impressed on all counts! I'll be sure to pass along your praises to the rest of the team. I hope you'll think of staying with us again if you're ever back in the area!

All the best,

We found this gem while searching Trip Advisor for lower cost options during SBU Family Weekend. We were pleasantly surprised! Our room was completely renovated from the walls out. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The management stayed on site and were always available if needed. One small pet peeve was the morning coffee left a bit to be desired but there are plenty of places nearby. We will definitely stay here again.

Most excellent stay!.. Heard about this through the Chamber of Commerce Great Valley area.. was hesitant, but so glad we chose to stay at this new renovated motel. Ann, staff member and Jeff the owner were more than awesome. Treated us with utmost service and well taken care of. Had a small glitch in room, but was very compensated for the glitch on sunday morning.. truly best place to stay... even if you are traveling through that area...Stop IN... check this place our for the night.. you'll not be disappointed!.... Thanks Ann, good man Charlie brown and Jeff for all your graciousness and hospitality!...

Room Tip: all rooms are most excellent.. and glove tested.. so I heard.. lol

I found the New Lantern Motel via a Google search. I was first impressed by how clean their website is (no ads). I made a reservation the day before traveling through the area and had a very comfortable stay. The newly renovated room (incl. bathroom!) was clean and cozy. The bed was so comfortable, I didn't want to get up! I won't hesitate to stay there again.
