Good Location and good for the money!

Location was great. It is right next to Texas Roadhouse and Golden Corral. It is close to Lancaster 's attractions. Can not be beat for the price and things were clean etc. Room could have been more attractive if they had different bedspreads. There was even an elevator. The breakfast was not very good--had those tiny muffins and no bagels.

red roof lancaster pa

the room was comfortable enough but the complimentary breakfast has a lot to be desired. if there are medical issues don't bother too many carb i.e. waffles, toast, muffins on Friday. Saturday the eggs were very dry and with bariatric surgery they would not go down. oatmeal would be a nice addition. and some skim milk. also the bathroom seems to have a slight mold problem and the door knob kept falling off if u r alone bring ur phone in with u

Consumer beware

I would never recommend this hotel. We immediately smelled a moldy, musty,dirty odor upon entering the room. There was mold on the ceiling over the bed, the sofabed was so filthy with dust and pet hair that I wouldn't even lay my clean clothes on it. The "fitness center" turned out to be a room they had stripped of furniture and bathroom fixtures, and outside the lobby it appeared that a fire extinguisher had been ripped from its plastic casing on the wall. There is so much competition from other hotels in Lancaster, I was extremely disappointed that they wouldn't keep this place up to standards.

A little noisy

The hotel was average, however the staff were very accommodating which improved the average rating. Since the hotel was on a main road and shared a driveway with a Steakhouse, it tended to be on the noisy side until after Midnight. Best to ask for a back room.

EXCELLENT -- Great Price, Clean, and Friendly

I highly recommend the Red Roof Lancaster as a place to stay while visiting the Lancaster area. The entire place was clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, there was even complimentary continental breakfast. The room had a TV, small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and a small safe. The price was extremely reasonable. I definitely would go back there on our next visit. You can spend more by staying somewhere else and probably get a few more luxuries, buy all we wanted was a place to rest at the end of the day and sleep. It was perfect … My recommendation to them is CHANGE NOTHING!

Don't expect comfort here!

This was one of the worst places we have ever stayed, crowded, cramped room which was supposed to be handicap accessible, could barely fit wheelchair between foot of bed and desk/tv stand. The most uncomfortable beds ever, thin, dingy looking sheets. Rooms desparately need to be cleaned. There were peanuts and a cigarette lighter under the bed in what was supposed to be a non-smoking room. Even though we had pre-paid for three nights, left after two, which was more than enough.
