“Better late than never!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

My husband and I spent 6 days at the Weathervane Motor Court (Oct. 7th - 12th) and we had such a pleasant time there. The owners were very friendly and helpful the whole time.
Our cleaning crew was right on the ball.........when was the last time your bed had sheets changed DAILY ---- We did! I must say also that the room was very clean and even smelled clean. The continental breakfast had many choices from bagels to doughnuts to several cereals
juices and coffee. (All Fresh)
We had not been to the Lancaster area for 15 years and will definately go back......at the Weathervane of course!

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are equal....but we stayed in room 8.

We stayed here based on reviews and information posted on motels website. Motel website states the motel is newly renovated and upgraded in 2012. We had booked for 2 nights but a
family situation came up and we were unable to stay the second night, which I am thankful we
couldn't stay. Thankfully, the motel staff, credited our credit card back for the second night. We booked a room with 2 queen beds and also non smoking. The mattresses, I believe are new as stated, also the TV, fridge and microwave was new, but that's all that was new or renovated in our room. The commode was old & cracked, the lid was broke. The room was wallpapered, not freshly painted, nor did our room have new carpet as the manager posted in a reply dated March 14, 2012. The wallpaper has been pieced different places. The door knob and door to the bathroom, I feel is the original from when motel was built, actually most everything in our room had to be from when motel was originally built. The carpet was worn terrible. Old linoleum on bathroom floor. Dirt in all the cracks around the walls. The sink and bathtub were clean, but commode was old and worn out, needs to definitely be replaced. We brought an old pair of bedroom slippers along and we were glad we did. Would not even think of walking in our bare feet on the floor. The light switch in the bathroom had a short and was sizzling when turned on.
If our room would have been as motel website represented it, it would have been an enjoyable stay. I posted some pictures I took of carpet and wall base. Would definitely not stay here again.

We have stayed here in the past, at that time it was an ok hotel. Now 2 years later we stayed again and it was wonderful. They have refurbished and up dated the rooms. We had new TV, fridge, and microwave. The location was perfect for whatever you want to do in Lancaster. Perfect for shopping (outlets across street). The distance from everything was convenient. We actually stayed 2 nights at another hotel. We had decided to stay 2more nights we definitely were not staying at the Classic Inn again; so we tried here again. Very good choice. Park right at your door.

My church had a trip to see Jonah at the Millinium Theater. A few of us wanted to stay overnight and could not find any place to accomodate us. I went on Hotels.com and came across Weathervane Motor Court and was able to reserve the rooms we needed. When we arrived we all were very pleased at the nice landscape and clean rooms. Nick and his family were very helpful. Our group makes a trip once a year to the Theater and on our next trip those of us they stay will reserve our rooms at Weathervane Motor Court.

We came across the Weathervane about 5 years ago when we had our kids to the Day Out With Thomas at the Strasburg Railroad and our hotel accomadations at the Paul Revere Best Western got lost. We did not know what to do but luckily we had a AAA book of PA and Md .The Weathervane was listed in the book and was just about the only place in Lancaster with a vacancy. So with 2 toddlers at the time my husband and I decided to try the Weathervane. We have been coming back ever since . Nick and his family are extremely nice and helpful. They have upgraded the rooms and remodeled the rooms in the last five years. My kids love the gazebo in the summer. They go to the breakfast room and grab a donut or a bowl of cereal and some juice and sit in the gazebo for breakfast. Grant it it is a simple breakfast but it tides my family over because we always make sure we eat at Shady Maple Smorgasboard so you do not want to stuff yourself. The rooms are always clean and Nick always makes sure we have enough towels,ask us if everything is okay with the room and reminds us of breakfast. My kids look forward to staying here everytime we visit Lancaster. We have even stayed the night here before camping at MillBridge Village Campresort so we could have more time in Lancaster. You won't go wrong staying at the Weathervane . The price fits our budget and now is a family tradtion to stay here at least 2--3 times a year. Also the rooms have a frig and microwave which comes in handy with 3 kids.They also have have new beds which are heavenly and flat screen t.v.s

Room Tip: The rooms in the middle are probably the quietest. The ones along side the road you will here minima...

This is the first time that my family has stayed at the Weathervane. We found about this place on the internet when couldn't get a place elsewhere. It was a hidden gem of a place to stay at. Stayed in a room with the new beds and they were great to sleep on. Very close to the outlets and places to eat. Everyone there was so nice and friendly. A very nice continental breakfast. Would stay there again.
