We spent one night here on our way from Philadelphia to Washington DC. The hotel is on actual land though built to look like a steamboat. We booked a room on the Sun Deck, which is for adults only - no kids allowed.
Check in was painless and the staff were friendly. We asked about some local tourist attractions, (in particular quilt stores) but they were not able to answer any of our questions.
The rooms are lovely and spacious as well as exceptionally clean. The only downside to the hotel is the entire place reeked of cinnamon - which unfortunately I can't strand the smell of. I understand wanting to get into the "fall" atmosphere but they really need to lay off the scent.
The hotel is located on a main intersection, but we couldn't hear any traffic noise from our room.
We used the laundry facilities while we were there and my husband used the pool, but I didn't. We did have breakfast in the hotel restaurant the next morning. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced.
I'm marking the hotel down on sleep quality as the cinnamon effected me so much I spent half the night sneezing and wheezing.
All in all we had a good stay and I would recommend the hotel if you are planning a visit to Amish Country.
