“Good room, good but tough location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Located right next to an elevated roadway, this hotel is less noisy than you would at first imagine. However, getting into and out of the parking lot onto pretty busy Route 462 can be just a little challenging.

The room was a small suite in that it has a couch and a bit more walking space than a regular room. There's a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room as well, plenty of room to iron a shirt. The one night stay found me waking up needing to stretch my back, but that's only a little unusual for me in a hotel bed. Plenty of towels, hot water, all the usual stuff. Needed a login for the WiFi.

The difference was the breakfast. It's free, meaning it's included in the price of the room, but it was either bad or bad timing for me. Whether I wanted a plate, an item of the hot breakfast items, or a drink, it was missing when I went for it with no sign of anyone paying attention to replenish the item. My eggs, sausage, and potatoes had to go in the same bowl after waiting (watched the movie on the TV a bit) for five minutes for anyone to show up with a plate to use. I went up for a second helping just to see how it would taste separated on a plate and there was no sausage and that never got refilled for the rest of my visit to the breakfast area about halfway though their time period for breakfast. Then - a little whining on the logistics - you arrive at the drink dispenser with hands full with a bowl, silverware, and another item and there is no place to set any of it down to grab a cup to get a drink.

I would return the next time I'm in Lancaster and hope for either better timing or someone else working the breakfast bar.

Room Tip: Try to get on the side away from Route 30.

We ended up staying at Hawthorn Suites via a reservation on Hotwire. This is a comfortable hotel with rooms a bit smaller than what you would find at other "suites" offerings. The largest beds are Queen size, but the rooms have a nice couch and sitting chair, so they are comfortable.
The fitness center had all of the machinery needed for working out. The breakfast buffet was lovingly served by a warm and friendly staff. As these included buffets go, they had a good balance of carbs and protein. Unfortunately, water in the Lancaster, PA area is not anything to write home for, so be prepared. Suggest you bring or buy bottled water. This location is located somewhat close to the entrance ramp for Rte. 30. We were concerned about the noise, but the walls are well-insulated. This hotel is a true road warrior choice, as it is strategically well positioned. The staff is very, very nice and cannot do enough to help. That always goes a long way with us.

Room Tip: Sleep on the opposite side of the entrance ramp for Rte. 30.
