Not the cleanest hotel

This hotel is out dated & in need of renovations. The first room we were put in was filthy! The toilets were dirty. There was gross stuff on they shear curtains. The air/heating system is old. You are stuck with whatever it is set for that time of year. There's a switch for the fan and it sounds like a Mack truck coming through your room constantly. The staff was friendly & switched our room to a cleaner one. I will never stay here again though

Annual Summer Family Vacation Spot

Stayed at the Host from August 10 through 18,2013. We have been staying at this hotel for the past eight years. We find the rates reasonable and the rooms are comfortable. There is a breakfast buffet that we find great value as kids under twelve eat free. We love the pooside rooms. The hotel has a great outdoor pool and also an indoor one. It has a kid zone play area and a game room. We love that kid movies are shown by the outdoor pool during the summer. There are also kid activities like smore making that my kids just love. The hotel is perfectly located just opposite Dutch Wonderland. It is only minutes from Tanger Outlets and Rockvale Outlets. It is also central to all the other activities that Lancaster has to provide such as The Strasburg Railroad and Cherry Crest Farm. We enjoyed our stay once again and look forward to staying there again next summer.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Dutch Wonderland is just down the hill from the Host. So close that you could actually walk there but the Lincoln Highway is a very busy road so I would recommend driving. Buying the two day flex tickets is recommended to save you money on tickets because if you have the time and your kids are like mine one day at Dutch Wonderland will not be enough!!

Management, please take care of this place!

This hotel has so many amenities to offer in such a great location with superb staff which is why it's such a shame that the rooms and grounds are in very poor condition. The bones of this hotel are great, it has a beautiful lobby, several restaurants, awesome pools, mini golf, tennis and b-ball courts, kids game room and the list goes on BUT all of it looks and smells like no one has cared for this property in a very long time so it really takes away from what could be a 4-5 star hotel. Landscaping, new carpets and paint (this would most likely get rid of the horrible smell), bed linens, flat screens and bathroom upgrades would make this place an actual resort, as the name implies. In it's current condition, it really is just the Lancaster Host Hotel. Please management, take care of this place!

The pool was great! But that was about all.

Hotel looked very good at first appearance, but after we where away from the lobby that changed. The air conditioning did not work. Temp outside was 90+, so the room was very warm with not circulation. My husband went down the street and bought a fan. The towls were very thin and very well used. The ceiling in the hallways were wll water stained and nasty looking. The location was great. And the kids loved the pool. Very large, so you never felt crowded. Front desk very nice. I would recommend this hotel because of the location and the outdoor pool.

Pool Closed ... Didn't Know It

We love the Lancaster Host Hotel because it has the indoor / outdoor pools, the kid's room and arcade, and they allow pets. We booked it for the weekend after Christmas because the rates were reasonable (when they usually aren't) and we wanted to use the indoor pool. They informed us when we got there that the indoor pool was closed for renovations, which was the reason we choose this hotel so our young daughter could swim. It is always very disappointing to me that the hotels represented through your web site can't seem to relay this important information to your web site so that costumers know what they are getting into. There is also a $25 pet fee that you don't know about when you reserve through your web site. Isn't there a way to show this also so that you don't show up at a hotel and find out there's an extra fee, or that the pool is closed, or other unpleasant surprises? Otherwise, we had a great stay there.

Good, basic, old hotel

The room was clean. It really needs renovation and a lot of new paint but it was fine for our overnight stay. I think if we were going back, I would stay somewhere else. There were several entry areas that smelled really bad. We enjoyed playing ping pong and shuffle board by the pool but the pool itself really needed some paint! So did the tennis courts but the golf course was gorgeous! Walking distance to Dutch Wonderland and Tanger outlets.

Good for the price.

Spent two nights here and while the hotel could benefit from some TLC, it is a good value for the price we paid. The room and linens were clean and we did enjoy some time around the outdoor pool. I would probably stay here again. For the $100 a night we spent it was not bad considering some negative reviews.

This hotel is a short drive to historic Lancaster City. Visit the Central Market located in a great historic building near Penn Square.
