My family bought a Groupon to stay at the Lancaster Host Resort for a quick overnight trip up to Dutch Wonderland from Baltimore. The location is conveniently located across the street from Dutch Wonderland (walking distance), close to many restaurants and an outlet mall, and a quick drive from downtown Lancaster and a bunch of other attractions. The hotel's location is prime!
Inside the hotel (lobby, common rooms), I agree with a lot of the reviews I've read that it is dated. However the staff there keeps it pretty clean, so that is okay in my book. The rooms were in okay condition. Nothing great, but again, kept clean. We didn't watch much television at all, but when we did, it was a little fuzzy. I'm not sure if that is because it was an old TV or because of the cable feed. Others have mentioned chipped porcelain in the tubs and sinks and yes there are some chips, but it was only cosmetic. Everything functioned just fine, so that's not a big deal.
The beds were comfy enough and the A/C did its job on a hot, muggy night, so my family and I got a good night sleep.
They have a real nice indoor childrens play area, similar to what you see at the malls, with a bunch of camping / outdoor related sculptures that kids can climb around on. My daughter loved being in that room. This is huge if you are traveling with small children and happen to have some inclement weather.
None of the ice machines that I attempted to use worked, but the front office was happy to supply you with ice upon request, even going so far as to deliver it to your room. So I had no issue with the ice machines being down.
The staff here was super nice. From the folks in the restaurant, to the people at the front desk, everyone was super nice and accommodating. Sure the furnishings weren't the latest and greatest, but cleanliness and customer service means a lot in my book, and the hotel did a nice job with this.
Bottom line, for the price we paid to stay the night ($69 through Groupon, which included the breakfast buffet), we couldn't be happier.
