We stayed in the two room suite for $209... spacious and clean with pullout in the LR and a king bed in the separate bedroom. Facility is almost brand new and squeaky clean with nice indoor pool, morning breakfast buffet and snack shop. Great location in Lancaster just off Rt 30. We've also stayed in a standard 2 queen room which is smaller, but nice as well.

This beats an outdated place like Willow Valley by a mile... you just can't beat the new hotel properties nowadays for cleanliness and modern amenities.

We stayed here last year for Memorial Day weekend and loved it.
Appeared new, friendly staff, clean room, nice size room with nintendo (extra charge). Children 4 and 6 enjoyed the indoor pool. Great breakfast buffet true meaning of deluxe. Coffee and small refrigerator in room great for the kids milk. We arranged to have the admission tickets to Dutch Wonderland and the railroad already at the front desk. We also got a free dinner voucher to Miller's restaurant. Everything was so great we want to go again this year. Families with young children should consider it.

  • Liked — Everything
  • Disliked — Would have liked an outdoor pool.

This was our second stay at the Courtyard in Lancaster. It is very clean and relatively new. Our room was standard, 2 queens and a pull out couch, refrigerator and bath. All were clean.

The hotel provided us with a complimentary drink from the bar. We also bought some snacks at the the snack area. My husband forgot a toothbrush and the hotel provided one for him on request.

Breakfast was very good. There is a large dining area w/Sat. morning cartoons on a large flat screen for the kids, which was nice for my son. You can order eggs any style or a belgian waffle. Also an assortment of cereals, meat and fruits and juices and coffee/tea for 10 dollars and our son ate for free.

My only complaint was the floor was noisy, (could be b/c we were close to the elevator.) I found the heater to be noisy this time but not during our last stay. I am a very light sleeper so these things tend to bother me.

We would stay here again because clean trumps quiet for me. We would just stay away from the elevator next time.

Oh, my son and husband used the pool and hot tub too. And they enjoyed it.

  • Liked — Cleanliness, proximity to Railroad museum
  • Disliked — A little noisy

We stayed at the Courtyard while at a swimmeet at F & M. The hotel has only been open a year and is very clean. The rooms are nice, we had a 2 double bed room with a pull-out couch. There is a fridge which is great for keeping water & Gatorade cold! The lobby is very welcoming with comfortable chairs, sofas and a gas fire. One night we had a drink at the bar, another we ordered pizza and drank our own wine.
Didn't eat breakfast there as we had to leave too early. It is a pretty standard Courtyard level Marriott but accomodation in Lancaster is not that great so this is a good option. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We just spent a night at Courtyard Lancaster. We have been traveling to Lancaster for years to visit family. We have tried most of the better hotels in the area (except for the new Lancaster Arts Hotel) and the Courtyard is one of the best so far. It is a new hotel and everything was in great shape. The room was spacious with 2 comfortable queen beds and a sitting area in the room. The bathroom was very nice. The breakfast buffet had made-to order eggs and fresh made waffles. There was a small indoor pool and an adequate fitness center.

Generally, I prefer to stay at a higher end hotel but for Lancaster this was very nice. I plan to stay there again.

It was enjoyable to have a good night's sleep after shopping at the outlets all day. The hotel was clean, staff was personable, and the trip to and from the outlets and resturants was easy and quick. I will stay here again.

  • Liked — The bed was comfortable
  • Disliked — No where to eat on site
  • Tips/Secrets — You can get directions on the Marriott site.

We stayed at this Marriott Courtyard on Hospitality Drive, Lancaster, PA this past week-end. We were visiting the area. The hotel is new and very clean. The staff was friendly. Our room was okay, clean, but the arrangement of the furniture in the room made it almost impossible to lay in bed and watch television. It was as if they were trying to fit too much in this small room. The mattress was very hard. I had opted to stay at the Marriott over the Holiday Inn which is right next door because of the usually comfortable mattress but not this time. Very surprised since this was a new hotel. That night we heard kids running up and down the hallways and out in the parking lot. After 30 minutes I called to complained and was told that it was a group of boys just returning from a hockey game and security was sent in to control it. The hotel personnel seemed very frustrated. The breakfast in the hotel was okay. I asked for over easy eggs but they turned out to be almost raw and were cold. The price of the room was $159.84 and they charged my card $190. I called and they said opps, and fixed it. Very pricey for what we got and off season. I don't mind paying a lot for a room as long as I get a good nights rest and am comfortable both of which did not happen.
