Depressed hotel in depressed town

I'm sure 50 years ago, the Yorktowne Hotel was a beautiful getaway. However, the once-fine establishment needs a lot of work. Carpets, walls, bathtub were stained. Everything needs to be updated. For the price, I thought it was definitely not worth it. Location was not great - no coffee shops, restaurants within walking distance that I could find.

Missing Privacy

The hotel is very old! It really needs some updating. The huge windows in the room had beautiful drapes, however, there were no sheers, and the drapes did not close. Yes, everyone can see in and it got very bright at 5:00 AM. The bathroom door did not close either. Simple fixes would really help this hotel,

Good for a night or two.

I stayed at this hotel for night and I wasn't super impressed but it was a nice hotel never the less. The bed was super comfortable and everything was clean but a little out date. It was little weird that they had a hdtv but no hd channels channels. Overall it was nice hotel.

Struggling Hotel

The mattress was MUCH too firm. The pillows were MUCH TOO firm. The bed was VERY UNcomfotable. There was Alcohol available [they lost their license] Like thedowntown city of York, the hotel is in a VERY difficult situation. It was a LOVELY hotel several years ago when we last stayed there!

Great location to Strand Theater, two blocks away.

This is a beautiful, old hotel whose heyday was decades ago, but despite that, the owners try to keep it up with pretty ambience and decor. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious with 2 queen beds and a sofa/sitting area splitting the room in half. The hotel main dining room was very quiet at 7 PM on a Saturday night, (only two tables filled,) which tells you the locals are dining elsewhere.

Book it if you want to attend an event at the Strand Theater nearby, and don't want to drive back to a hotel late at night.

disappointing

Our previous stay at the Yorktowne was wonderful. This time however, we stayed in the stepchild's room. The wallpaper was separating at the seams. The carpet was old and needed to be cleaned. The layout of the room was odd. It was a disappointing contrast to our previous stay.

Very nice people

The staff was great, but Valet parker crashed my car causing 2,000 dollars in damage. The hotel paid for everything, but it was a hassel.
