We have stayed here a number of times. Always clean and convenient. The rooms are wonderful. We love the pool and work out rooms. The continental breakfast is so filling...one of the best. More like a full breakfast. You won't leave hungry. This location is great for shopping and visiting attractions.

The hotel room is large with a living space and bedroom. The staff is friendly and the location is good, within walking distance from Dutch Wonderland. However, the room had an odor similar to body odor. We had room spray and used it to help make the room smell better. They offer a free breakfast, but the breakfast area is very small and after waiting for a seat for 15 minutes, we left. Overall, the hotel was average, but I prefer Fulton Steamboat Inn or Best Western Eden Resort when visiting this area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face Lincoln Highway

We were here for a swim meet at FandM for three days. We arrived after 11pm and were greeted warmly by the gentleman at the desk. Our 1bedroom suite was located in the rear of the building and quiet-it was clean, warm and cozy. The beds were very very comfortable! Everything was great-breakfast, coffee, cookies, pool-the only negative was the fitness room. There were only four pieces of equipment and only the treadmill worked-ugh !
This place is in the middle of everything and a great value. If the fitness room were improved we would be more likely to return

We found this hotel on the Internet and compared to other hotels in the area it seemed inexpensive, which was of some concern, however the reviews were very good. We stayed for two nights. From the moment we entered the lobby, we were met by friendly staff. Our room was one of the biggest we have encountered on this particular holiday in America. It came with a separate lounge room, and a bedroom. All rooms were clean and tidy, with a safe included. We were on the second floor facing a busy highway, but heard very little traffic noise. Breakfast was more than adequate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and highly recommend it to anyone else.

Warm homey atmosphere as you walk through the door.
Nice room, refrigerator, microwave, two sink bathroom.
Staff was very helpful when we had to leave a couple of days earlier then our reservation called for due to a medical emergency.
We will definitely stay here when we return to the Lancaster area.
The amusement park across the street was closed for the season. I think it being closed was a plus for us.

Very oriented to families in every way.

Considering this is a chain, we were delighted: many "extra" touches like non-stop coffee self-service, a fireplace (artificial but still cozy), free newspapers, a lending library for up-to-teenaged readers, and plenty of towels by the indoor pool, which had a much nicer view than many similar places. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The free breakfast is relatively wide in range, but lacking in anything to get me really impressed (no fresh eggs or local baked goods). On the other hand, kids enjoy making their own waffles.

Slight drawbacks: very noisy road on one side, beds softer than average, pool only about 4 feet deep at maximum.

If I were trying to save money, I would probably choose another place - in the immediate area there are plenty of cheaper but probably reliable alternatives, and some really excellent breakfast restaurants that would be much better than this hotel's free breakfast. But our whole family really appreciated this place, so for a short-to-medium stay I would come again.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper: don't stay here unless they promise you a room facing away from the...

The Country Inn & suites was just what we were looking for! It's in a great location - very convenient to many places. The room we had was spacious and exceptionally clean, with comfy beds, so we were able to sleep well! There's an indoor pool and workout area, plus they provide a free breakfast - with enough choices to please everyone!

If you're looking for a nice place to stay in for a getaway - without breaking the bank, then I highly recommend The Country Inn & Suites! The Inn is also an excellent place to stay in if you're traveling with children, as they have rooms with extra beds and space!
