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.

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.

Affordable Hotel with Waterpark Package Getaway

On our way back form Ocean City, we spent the night in Lancaster and at this hotel. We got their waterpark package which included 4 passes to the Caribbean Indoor Waterpark. The room was fantastic. ... flat screen tv and two bathroom, with microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator... The indoor heated pool was nice but the waterpark was great ! This will now be our winter getaway place, much more affordable than Great Wolf Lodge.

Budget Host Inn Dutch Country Lancaster

The Inn's pictures on the website shows only front of building and looks nice but form side pictures you can see it is not what you expected if we would see the whole building pictures. Staff is rude, doesn't speak good English. We requested crib on reservation but we needed to pay extra $20 and nobody told us about it, plus it was not a crib, it was single bed which didn't work for our 2 years old child. Front desk didn't explain about payment. The room was ok but with very old pillows and we found a bug climbing our laggage. I didn't feel conffortbale to stay there and would never come again for this price. Was cheap type of motel...

Breakfast is light but right between Dunkin Donuts and Mcdonald. Good if you have kids, some fun, water park only during weekend. WiFi ok.

Just enough

Room was clean and surprisingly large. The continental breakfast was very limited-- coffee and a sweet prepackaged roll. My teen children enjoyed the pool and this inn was super well-located. Perfect for a one night stay.
