First off I have to say thanks to Nick who waited up for us...we kept the poor man waiting until midnight! He even called becasue we got lost and were later than we had hoped.
He was very nice and check in was a breeze.

When I first called to make this reservation at the last minute I called and spoke to Shrada and she could not have been any nicer, not to mention, she gave us a great rate as well.
When we arrived we couldn't believe how nice the room was. It was impeccably clean and comfortable. Spotless. The beds were cozy and the carpet was soft and plush and CLEAN.
The windows all have candles in them which added extra charm and gave it a very cozy feeling.
In the morning light, the view was fabulous, with an Amish farm in the back. The grounds are also perfectly maincured. Not a paper, cigarette or leave to be seen. Picnic tables and tables with little umbrellas for nicer weather. This is one of the cleanest places I have been at.
The rooms are updated as I said and are perfect for what your nned are. The motel is directly behind the WAWA and diagonally across form Rockvale so if your looking for Spotless, cozy accomodations, look no further. You can not beat the deal here.
The fresh bagels and cereal, juice and coffee are perfect in the morning and pastries.
(all included).
It is very apparent that the owners take pride in their property and maintain it with much deserved pride. God Bless them!
ALso, we have stayed in many places here and will definitely be back next visit.
You can not beat the room, breakfast and comfort for the price we paid!!!!

Also friends of ours that ALWAYS stay around the corner at a different motel on Route 30(not as clean or updated and no continental breakfast and rate is a bit higher!) have now decided to stay here next time based on our experience and the rate, rooms, etc....
They were disappointed that they didn't stay here the night we did...but they will book here in the future.

I just wanted to say that the internet pictures of this place do it no justice. Its much nicer, cozier, charming than it looks, so PLEASE, give it a try. You WON'T be disappointed....
OH, great shower too! And, they also have security cameras all over the property...what else could you ask for....SAFETY

Thanks again to Nick and Shrada(hope I spelled them right) for everything and you can rest assure, you will receive a reservation from me again in the future.
I truly loved this place and can't wait to return. I have already recommended this place to others.
Keep up the good work.

A great little motel in Lancaster, pa. Price is right and the people that run it are real nice. Cont. breakfast included and the rooms were spic and span clean. Have stayed here 2 times and each time was nice. Not a high class place but what you would be looking for, price and quality.

Older type motor inn, rooms well kept (the only small criticism would only be a couple corners of wallpaper curling a bit--just like home!). Exterior very attractive with picnic tables in the center courtyard (no pool). Rooms were clean, comfortable, and the beds slept well. Rooms included a small refrigerator and microwave. Morning breakfast items included donuts, bagels, jelly, 2 type of dry cereal, milk, juice, cofee...all that's needed for a light breakfast. Owners very friendly, and attentive to our every need....his children were well behaved and quite courteous. Would definitely stay here again and $58/night for family on a budget was outstanding!

The weathervane motor court is a 31 room motel located near busy rt 30 in the heart of
Lancaster PA. Even though it is situated near a busy highway, once inside your room the noise seems to fade. The rooms are very clean and everything in working order. The beds are very comfortable,great shower with plenty of hot water. This property is very convenient to all restaurants, shopping and Amish attractions which this area is known for. The value here is excellent!!!. The owners of this motor inn could not have been nicer
This is a place I will return to...Oh by the way ...they have working wifi service in the rooms

Have stayed here each summer while visiting Lancaster for the past 2 years....it's reasonable with prices, clean rooms, of which the bathroom was very clean...The staff are friendly and helpful if needed, the usual free continental breakfast.
It's located just about at the intersection of route 30 and 896 which makes it convenient to all shopping, restaurants etc. The Wa Wa gas station is located on the corner...you can walk there from your room to get snacks etc...there is a huge cornfield in back of Weathervane.
They do not have a pool, so if that is what you would like, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for an average motel to hang your hat, but clean , try the Weathervane.

  • Liked — it's location, the clean room, rates
  • Disliked — there was nothing I did not like....it's a decent place to stay. No complaints
