My son and I had to stay in the area for soccer tournaments and our friends reserved this room for us. The room was clean, the people very nice and the value was excellent. Two weeks later when we had to go back to Lancaster, we chose to stay in the same place becasue we liked it so much. We even got the same rooms!!

We stayed there on Christmas Eve while visiting Pennsylvania Dutch Country. We chose it because of the TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. I had called a week before to ask a question, and when the owner returned my message, he could not have been more friendly or helpful. We met the wonderful family who own this great place when we checked in. The rooms are clean, functional and with a bigger TV than the expensive name hotel we stayed at in the Philadelphia are when we left. Also, the Weathervane is PERFECTLY located with plenty of good eating and tourist choices within a few minutes driving. We would not think of staying anywhere else.

I'm a frequent visitor to the Lancaster area, this is the first time staying here. Stayed for 2 nights. Room was slightly worn looking, I don't think it was recently upgraded - it might have been painted - the rug looked old. Everything was very clean, nice TV, microwave and fridge. There was a hairdryer by the sink. If you're looking for a lot of amenities then don't look here. If you want a nice clean room near the shopping outlets at a great price then this is the place, The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had a breakfast and coffee room but I didn't check it out. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: I was in a smoking room tucked in a corner of the motel, not bad, but I think the check-in side migh...

The Inn is clean and comfortable, with reasonable and competitive rates. The owner is constantly making improvements to the rooms to make your stay even better then the last time you were there. The staff and management are very friendly, honest, and willing to go the extra mile to make your stay the very best that it can be. They also have a continental style breakfast which is more than adequate to meet your morning needs. Ice is also available in the coffee room, and you have access to cable TV and WiFi for your computer needs. Weathervane is a must stay for your Lancaster Vacation.

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.
