Pros: Clean and modern facility, friendly and helpful staff
Cons: Neighborhood dicey at night, self parking fee confusion
My young son and I stayed here over a weekend visiting the Strasburg Railroad. I reserved this hotel via Priceline and was very pleased with the results. Upon check in, they did not have any rooms with two double beds, but the very kind woman at the desk upgraded us to an executive room free of charge (which hotels NEVER do when you book via Priceline). The room was very nice – granite surfaces, huge windows, very comfy beds, HDTV.
We arrived late at night and as we neared the hotel, I noticed that the neighborhood was not the greatest. I made sure I took ALL of my valuables and double checked my car was locked when I left the self parking.
One note about the self parking – make sure you get your parking ticket validated at the front desk. I paid my self parking fees at the kiosk in the garage because that’s what I was told to do by the garage. When I checked out, I noticed that a self parking fee had been billed to my room. I pointed this out when I saw this to the front desk and they immediately removed the charge on my bill.
Despite these small issues, I would stay at this hotel again if I am in the area.
