Affordable Lancaster base with family fun water park
Families minding their wallets will appreciate the Lancaster Budget Host Inn with its indoor pool and Caribbean Water Park.

Wouldn't stay here again.

When we arrived our room was uncomfortably warm (August). The air conditioner did not work at all in the room. The phone cord was out of the phone and the line was broken out of the phone. I told the front dest and they stated that they would notify someone. Well, we ended up staying all night in that room waiting for "someone" to show up. The next morning I tried to call the front desk, no answer. I called 3 or 4 times and let the phone ring 20 times minimum. When they finally answered I told them that I couldn't spend another night in that room, and nobody ever came to address the issues. They moved us to another room. No problems in that room. We stayed here for 4 nights. I just wish that they were more upfront and moved us during our first night instead of making me think that they would fix the problems. Every morning they ran out of eggs and waffles by 8am. You have to get to breakfast really early, they skimp on food. The quality of the breakfast was ok at best (when there was food). This seemed to be a common complaint with the other guests as well. The pool walls were slimy, my kids both slipped when trying to get into the pool. I almost slipped as well (not because of the water, because of the slimy surface). I probably won't stay here again. I would rather spend the extra money for better service and quality. It was pretty run down, not what I expected. If the customer service had been better I might have been able to overlook the other stuff. I was here with my wife and two children.

Downhill

Several years ago the hotel was clean and well run. Just walking across the floor made my socks black. There was mildew in the shower. Could not get on the internet. Was not worth the $109 we spent at all. The staff were friendly enough.

Cool water park dirty hotel

Room has black mold in both the room and bathroom. Told staff and when she looked she made cleaning staff come with her along with tile cleaner. She tried to tell us that it was a water stain. She then offered to have cleaning staff clean it with tile cleaner. The kids did enjoy the water park.

Nicely Renovated Hotel !!!

Our 3rd visit stay at this hotel was just perfect. The lobby looked new and the free hot breakfast was well stocked and had a lot of choice. The indoor pool and indoor waterpark was well enjoyed by our kids. Our room looked well cleaned and had modern furniture. Over all the hotel was clean and staff friendly. Only set back was our rooms were very far from the indoor pool. Other wise a great trip to Lancaster.

Wouldn't recommend to a friend or an enemy!

My husband & I checked in on a Friday for our anniversary weekend. Noticed the pillows were very flat, so I called office asking for more, the girl told me she had to check into it! An hour later I went down to the office & was treated like I had already gotten pillows & was trying to steal more! I didn't sleep all night, the bed was so hard! Hubby said it would be more comfortable sleeping on the sidewalk! Next day I noticed lots of spider webs in hallway & the wall paper in our room was bubbling & peeling off! Second night we had party guests across the hall, at 12:15 I called office to complain, heard them come down & were knocking on door, but I don't think anyone answered the door! At 2am I called again & told the guy I was packing up & would be coming down to the office to get my money back! (At this point he acted like he couldn't understand english suddenly!) As I was packing he called & said he talked to the party guests & they promised to be quiet & said if they didn't he would move our room but not give us money back! Told him if I was moving anywhere at 2 am I was leaving & calling BBB! Things finally quieted down! They obviously don't care about guests!

Better than expected

We knew it is a budget motel and did not have much expectation. But our stay was quite comfortable, and it was better than we expected. We booked 2 adjacent rooms, and the rooms were quite spacious. The location is close to everything.
