I have been staying at the Bird-in-Hand Family Inn for many years. I've watched it grow from a small family-owned motel to a huge complex. The accommodations are always good; the rooms are clean and in good working order. The property itself is very nice with a large swimming pool, mini-golf course, petting zoo, and a next-door restaurant with excellent food. The property is also right next door to a large Farmer's Market (within walking distance) and nearby to many of the Pennsylvania Dutch attractions of Lancaster County. The staff is very nice and always seems to be smiling and friendly.
Negatives: several negatives keep this from being an excellent review. First of all, and most annoying in this age, the W-Fi signal is unreliable and spotty at best. One would think with all the upgrades that have been made to this property, a good Wi-Fi signal throughout the property would be a priority. Second, I have always found the mattresses hard and difficult to sleep on. I never really feel rested after a night's sleep. Third, the heating systems. At least in the rooms that I have stayed, they are annoyingly loud and seemingly unreliable at best.
I wish that I could give this property an excellent rating; I would like to. Unfortunately with the negatives listed above, the best I can do is "very good".
