This place is REALLY great for all ages; there were families, couples and seniors quietly enjoying the grounds. We just returned from a great one-night stay here in Strasburg PA on the way back to upstate NY and we did NOT want to leave, but had to get back home after a long trip to VA. We will be returning to this Clarion on our next visit to Amish country. We always chose Strasburg or Intercourse/Bird-in-Hand to avoid Lancaster PA main drag rt30 and crowds. This hotel is unique layout and beautiful setting. The standard two-bed rooms are nice but basic; we slept well on the beds/pillows in the quiet hush of Amish country. (Only downsides: Small older fridge made odd noises all night, coffee cups dirty; rooms were very clean, but we found two black socks not ours under bed!! and we had to kill a spider on pillow and two moths upon arrival, but this is in the country like where we live in NY farmland, and the bugs probably come in from the door which opens right to the outside or the slight gap under door, not opening into a hallway.No fly issues like in other Amish farm rooms. The views of gliding Hot Air Balloons and Amish farms was lovely. We were glad to get last-minute AAA rate reservations for two comfortable main floor rooms approved for pets. We were in the 1-story gold-paint and building nearest the quiet pharmacy and shops next door, with a beautiful Amish buggy and horse hitched to the post for a few hours outside our windows. We followed the locals (a policeman and Amish teens) into the excellent pizza parlor for great Italian food and salad picnic ( a compliment from us as NYers). The pool was very nice, really clean, hubby and teen daughter went early before 10 am for quiet before the cute little kids arrived. if check-out was 12 not 11, I would have had time for pool. The pool looked nice the evening before, but we were too tired form long drive, lots of adorable tiny kids running with excitement towards the pool with parents trying to tire them out before 8pm. The grounds are lovely and sitting in gazebos in the heatwave was nice. No time for their quaint, fancy restaurant, but it was busy...the free breakfast was great, took back to family to warm up in room microwave (great small waffle, syrup and eggs). Felt very safe here, very peaceful. Heard the Strausburg train whistle in distance; nice memories of our rides when kids were young. This hotel is basic but a quaint country place, which is why we go to Amish country to avoid the large places.
I really appreciated having the nice pedestal sink inside the toilet/shower area as well as a sink/mirror outside the bathroom at the closet area near door. The shower/tub was very small, but ok. The front desk lady was so kind and pleasant when getting the call that the toilet stopped up at 12:30am with just paper thankfully, as clear water went over the top...we threw towels down, called lobby, hubby walked outside over to main lobby in pj's for a plunger which she got from the shed...brought her the wet towels in a bag for fresh towels and returned the plunger.(***Tip: Remind the kids to use only a little paper and flush in between as toilet was older kind. Also, ask for a ground floor room building if you don't want stairs or have a lot of luggage or a pet. Being able to parking right outside the various buildings was important to us as well.)
