“Good Value!”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

We booked here thru an hotels.com because the reviews were good and the price was great. Our first choice was a large chain motel nearby that also had great rates but was already booked.

The location is close to all shopping and within good driving distance to most area sites & attractions. One night we went to Strasburg Creamery (MUST do!!) and it only took like (8) minutes to drive there from the motel. Anyway, the pro's are that our room was clean, slightly dated but everything was in good working order. The sink and vanity were updated with solid surface and framed mirror; the tub and toilet are separate. The continental breakfast was a pleasant surprise (we knew they offered "breakfast" but were impressed with what they offered). A nice selection of fresh bagels, danish, cereal, orange juice, fresh coffee & teas. (Ask for cream cheese if it's not out) The only thing missing is a counter of some kind to place your plate on while eating if you don't want to carry your food back to your room of sit outside on the many benches or gazebo. The beds are a little on the firm side but it may depend on what room you're in.

The staff is friendly and eager to help; we checked in late and it wasn't a problem. The owner encouraged us to call direct next time instead of going thru hotels.com, we would still get a great rate. One other thing: while watching TV be sure that there isn't anything obstructing (like a handbag or other object) the sightline between the cable controler and the remote. We didn't realize this and thought our remote was malfunctioning. Other than that, you should have a very nice stay at a very nice price!

Room Tip: the breakfast is served in what was probably a guest room at one time. Ask not to be next to the bre...

I stayed at the Weathervane with a group of 9 University students. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Most importantly, they were very clean. The interior appears reasonably new and well-maintained. The continental breakfast was fine - a good variety of donuts, bagels, cereals. A couple of table and chairs in the breakfast room would have been nice, but we sat outside at the picnic tables. Free internet is included!

It was good for the cost. It's well located if you want to be in Amish country and the staff was helpful, like bringing us toilet paper bc there was none and more towels and the rooms are large. However, it's very old school. It's clean but has those old gross blankets and no toiletries whatsoever. Luckily, we bring all of that on our own. There were good refrigerators in the rooms as well, no adjoining rooms though, and no laundry facilities. Parking is very convenient to your room.

price and location was really good for the area, however no handicap adaptions in the bathrooms which my mother really needed. Because of that, I would need to choose another place in the future. Staff were friendly, but amenities consisted of tiny bars of soap that were good for one use only, and no shampoo. Of the two beds in the room, was mattress had been replaced, but the other was very soft with no support.

I love this place. Country like older motel, can park outside the door. Nice yard with Gazebo and picnic tables. Clean rooms with new TV's, microwave and frig. Beds comfortable. Quiet at night. Close to everything. If you are looking for a fancy motel, this is not your place. If you want to kick back, relax and feel at home...stay here. The staff is awesome and the fresh pastries in the morning are great!

We have stayed here multiple times in the past 3 years, after it was recommended by friends. My wife and I visit the area often and enjoy the large, clean rooms which have been updated with large screen TVs. Every room has a fridge and microwave. Several have kitchenettes. We have been part of larger family groups several times and the owners always go out of their way to make everyone feel at home. The Continental Breakfast has something for everyone and gives a good start to the day. We enjoy sitting outside, especially in the evening and enjoying the peaceful amish area. This is a great location if you are shopping at the outlets or visiting the various sites in Lancaster County. Located near the intersection of Rt 896 and Rt 30, close to everything, yet still quiet and peaceful. If you want good clean lodging, in a great location at a reasonable price, this is the place.
