MainStay Suites of Lancaster County
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Mountville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2005

Well the first thing we said when we pulled up to the MainStay Suites was "it looks nice!" And it does- the hotel looks very nice, inside and out.
We chose this hotel because it was virtually the only hotel in all of Lancaster County that would fit 6 in one room...all of us couldn't fit anywhere else.
The lobby was very elegant and welcoming and so was the receptionist at check-in (and check-out).

The amount of space in our room was incredible! The two beds were on one side, and the couch was on the other, and they seemed to be miles apart! Without a doubt the largest room we ever stayed in. We had two Queen beds, i think the rate was around $160 a night. (We only stayed one night).

Yes, the pool is small, but it wasn't crowded during our visit so we virtually had it to ourselves for the time being (very nice!)

For it's cleanliness, hospitality, and proximity to attractions such as Dutch Wonderland (about 10 mins away) and Hershey (about 25-30 mins away) I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this region.

We took a two-night trip to Lancaster, and decided on this place, as many places in Lancaster are getting old and dirty. For a price of around $135 per night, it is nice. Situated near, but not right on, the highway which can be used to get to Lancaster, (The hotel was a couple of miles away) it was well positioned. The Sleep Inn next door hosts a pool, although I did not see in so cannot rate it, and the exterior is pleasant. There is not much of a check in desk though, and it was more like a motel office, but it was more spacious and had a breakfast room. The elevator and halls were clean enough, and the room, although a faint smell was there, was big enough and generally clean. The bathroom floor was sticky and an open shampoo bottle was found. The breakfast balanced the small disappointment out. Free waffles! Not pre-made. The batter is there, and waffle-cookers are provided, though only two, to make your own. (This should be popular with the kids.) And even better for the kids, a thick, sweet, strawberry topping was provided. This hotel all in all, turned out to be nice, and once again, one of the better ones in/near Lancaster.

We've stayed at the Mainstay Suites several times on our Hershey/Dutchwonderland trips. Its a great place for the price. The staff is very friendly and informative. The rooms are large. Our room consisted of 1 queen bed and a pullout sofa bed which sleeps 2. There was enough room for the pack 'n' play near the sofa. The kitchen area had a microwave, full size fridge (a BIG plus!) and stove, complete with dishes, pots and utensils. The room was clean. The only drawbacks that we've experienced was that one time we had "soiled" pillows (but management came and delivered another one immediately) and another time the mattress on the sofa was "soiled" (which we covered with extra sheets). Since the supply closet is just down the hall we were able to get extra sheets and towels as need.
I am staying at the Mainstay on our next trip and have recommended it to friends.

My family stayed at this hotel this past week during our trip to Dutch Wonderland and Hershey. I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice, clean hotel with very efficient suites. We were able to cook (no ovens) and the refridgerator is full sized. The drive to Dutch Wonderland was only 15 minutes and Hershey was about 1/2 hour. This place was quiet and the pools were clean. They served a very impressive continental breakfast, with 2 self-serve belgian waffle makers (with premade mix), toast, bagels, juice, etc. along with dining area. They were friendly and helpful with directions and dining suggestions.

Drawbacks: (1) this is a long term stay place. No daily "room service". By request they will make beds and remove trash. Otherwise, they have a self-serve supply closet. Good cleaning is once a week. (2) The indoor pool is at the Sleep Inn next door. (3) No inhouse movies, limited TV, no VCR's.

None of the above was a major issue for us. I would highly recommend this hotel for a family of up to 4.
