Reviewed May 15, 2014

No belles and whistles, just a very enjoyable place to stay. Romms are a little dated, but they were clean and restful. Plenty of restaurants in area (Lancaster,PA), and plenty of shopping. Very quiet and relaxable. Would return. Friendly staff.

Room Tip: Looking for a quick place, this is it.

We have stayed here several times over the years. This time was very disappointing. Rooms were not kept very clean. Beds were very uncomfortable. Water pressure in shower was very little. Wish I could give a better review.

I have stayed here my last 5 trips to Lancaster. The service has always been wonderful. The location is just far enough from Route 30 that you're not bothered by the traffic and yet still right in the middle of all attractions. There's a continental breakfast available. Simple, no frills. If you spend a lot of time in the room, this probably wouldn't be for you. But if you're like me and looking for a bed and shower before you go off exploring, it's perfect!

Room Tip: If you have any kind of walking problems, be sure to request a first floor room. There is no elevato...

We checked into this motel based on the 8+ rating on Booking.com. After four weeks of overnight stays in motels, we more or less knew what to expect of a 2-star establishment - ie a basic, no frills, roof-over-the-head-and-bed-only type of place.

The gentleman at reception was wonderful and we were made to feel very welcome. Checking-in was quick and efficient and without hassles. Fantastic, after a long day driving!

Its location relative to tourist attractions, outlet shopping, restaurants and Walmart is tremendous and convenient. There is complimentary WiFi and the cost excluding taxes of $69 per night is reasonable enough (but please read my qualification below).

As the name suggests, the motel is indeed Olde (read - Old) but Amish it is not. So do not expect any Amish character or ambience.

The room was generally clean but the carpet was beyond its use-by date and it shows. You can literally see stains. There was no coffee and tea available in the room, nor was there writing material (it turned out we needed this).

Unfortunately we had a room directly over the Inn's entry and every time the door was used, the door bell went 'DONG!' loudly. It was an absolute nuisance particularly when it started going early in the morning.

With the above said, and given our recent experiences with motels, the single issue which perturbed us the most is the room rate. It is similar to Days Inns (not that all Days Inns are good) but the quality and guest benefits are more like Motel 6s which cost $50 to $60 per night excluding taxes.

Would we come back? Probably but only if the room rate reflects the condition of the facilities.

This is a 2 star motel. The expectation is a clean room, very few amenities and priced low because of the lack of amenities. My rating is based on those criteria.
Facility – 2 story. The second floor is accessed via stairs and an indoor hallway. No elevator. The first floor is a typical motel with direct access from your car parked in front of the door. If you have mobility issues, make sure that you are on the first floor.
Room – Large, clean, no odors,2 queen beds, table & 2 chairs, 4 drawer dresser, microwave, small refrigerator with ice box, clock radio, hair dryer, alcove with clothes hangers, new flat panel TV with lots of channels. The soundproofing in the room is superb. It was totally quiet all night long. The furniture is dated but in good shape.
Beds - good mattress (medium firmness), pillows OK
WiFi – strong signal, decent speed
Bathroom – clean, toiletries, everything worked fine, endless hot water
Heat/AC – wall unit with thermostat. This can be an issue if you are a light sleeper.
Breakfast – breads, donuts, fruit, cereal, coffee & tea. If you want a hot breakfast, there are plenty of good choices in the immediate area.
Location - close to modern shopping, outlets and traditional PA Dutch attractions.
I don’t understand some of the bad reviews. I stayed in room 37 and it was spotless. I find it hard to believe that the other rooms could be so different. I ignored the negative reviews after I looked at the booking.com rating of “very good” with 221 reviews. This is an excellent value for the area. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the motel, this would not be the best choice. If you are just sleeping here, it’s a great choice.

Room was on the cheaper side but you get what you pay for. Walked in the room and it reeked of mold and cigarette smoke. (Even though non smoking room was what I reserved) this was the worst hotel I've ever been in I actually ended up canceling my reservations (which they did refund fully) and went and spent the night at a different hotel down the road. Would not recommended going to!

Normally stay in brand name motels but everything seemed to be booked when we arrived so choice this one. The rooms are big and clean, cept for a little spot on carpet. The price was good. The room had a fridge and microwave as well as flat screen TV. The little table and standing lamp need tightening tho. Sink water runs VERY slow but shower worked and ran great.
Wish they would have had coffee in the room.
