Red Roof Inn Lancaster - Strasburg
Ranked #33 of 40 Hotels in Lancaster
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Priceline rates this as a 2 star hotel and I was really disappointed when I bid and got this hotel. I saw that they were renovating, so I had some hope that it would be ok.

We arrived when it was dark, but we could tell what we were in for. The parking lot was cluttered with old furniture, construction materials, etc. Checked in and was given room 132. I asked if it was one the renovated rooms and was told it was. We couldn't find the room so, desk staff showed us where it was. It had a masking tape number beside the door.

The carpet in the room and the wood tile had been renovated. The counter on the sink was new. The microwave and mini fridge looked brand new. The flat screen TV was an off brand and was small. The bedding and bed were definitely not new. The mattress was hard. The bedding had holes through it and looked old and worn. The shower had a new shower head.

Woke up the next morning to sunlight pouring in the blinds. No curtains and cheap blinds means we were wide awake at 6:45 am. As we were leaving I noticed the carpet in the building looked new. The hallways smelled like smoke, even though no smoking signs were posted. Stopped at the desk and told them about brightness in room and they left a sheet in the room for us to hang up over the window.

There was no phone in the room. Wi if worked great after we got the password. No one was at the front desk until 8 am in the mornings. Smelled coffee, but didn't see any "limited breakfast."

All in all, you get what you pay for and I learned never to go below 2 1/2 stars on Priceline. The best things about the hotel was the friendly and courteous staff and the location,

Very Close to shopping center and Theater.
Property is renovating, New rooms are excellent and beautiful! I stayed here for a week end and it was lovely, and great experience in Lancaster. The room was clean and updated with granite counter tops and flat screen TV's.
Great customer service. Loved it!
Will definitely stay again!

This room was one of the very cleanest I have ever experienced. It is under construction. So the parking lot was a mess. Excellent service.

I would definitely take the time to come out to lancaster again and visit this inn and all of its surrounding attractions. Came to the sight and sound show, it's only three traffic lights away. Rooms were extremely spacious!!!! We loved the shower and amenities. They also have a swimming pool which will open in season. We stayed in room 132.

Ok so we spent a night here because we wanted to hit the Lancaster outlet centers, and finding a cheap room was a good way to get the shopping mission started early in the next day. Well.

We got what the check in clerk described as refurbished. And it might've been... kinda. The fixtures and floor in the bathroom were new. The hotel room walls were recently painted (it was kind of a weird industrial indoor stucco). There was a new tv, a small flat-screen no-name brand like you'd find at Walmart on Black Friday for $88. And there was a new hair dryer that barely blew out any air. I guess that was the refurbishment.

The bed/mattress were so old that Methusalah might have slept on it. The dresser was banged up, cracked and broken (to the point that one of the three drawers was inoperable). There was NO closet or wardrobe of any kind, not even a hook. So there was nowhere at all to hang even a single item of clothing or a jacket. The A/C unit was sloppily installed into the wall, in a cut-out that was not quite straight. There was no trash can, in the room or bathroom. There was an old dirty clock radio on the shabby nightstand. The towels in the bathroom were threadbare, 1/2 the size of a normal bath towel, and one of them had mystery stains all over it. There was no wifi as advertised, at least not in our room. There was no free breakfast as advertised, although I did see a box of mini-muffins in the lobby when I checked out. It was there the night before when we checked in, too. We left and went to IHOP.

I'm struggling for any positives. Um, the front desk people seemed pleasant enough. And the location is very close to the outlet shops. There.

Davey The Managing Director is a super sweet nice guy. Very professional and honest. The Travel Lodge is undergoing renovations, and the new room upgrades are very nice.
I had a new room#114. Internet Access password protected, Fridge, Microwave, Coffee Maker, Hair Dryer. The room is quite on par with a Hampton Inn Room. But for A LOT LESS MONEY.

I Praise and thank The LORD Jesus for the great time he provided.

Room Tip: Pray to GOD Jesus Christ First. The true light of life will guide your way.......ALWAYS.

Dear James A,

We have had a special bond and moment here at the Travelodge Lancaster/ Strasburg. As you came to visit Lancaster to go to Sight and Sound theatres, you created an unforgettable journey. We the Lancaster Team realized that we are slowly creeping to the top hotels in the Lancaster Market. We understand that there are many items that need to be done to the property still. However, to present you with a brand new room and first class service is our first approach. We want to pardon all guests that visit this site as it is still undergoing final stages of renovations.

Best
Dave
