Granny's Motel Frackville

Recent guest reviews

Nothing fancy at all, but clean room, shower. We had been driving and just needed to crash for a while, so didn't care for any amenities. Asked where I could get a coffee, and owner made a pot, so that was plus. Oh, gotta check out the spooky statue of "granny". Scary looking kid holding a headless doll!

For starters, 'Granny's Motel and Restaurant' is no longer a restaurant, and just goes as 'Granny's Motel.' Please, do not come here looking for glamour or luxury. However, if the cheapest price is what you are looking for, and hot water and a bed are enough for you, this is not a horrific way to spend $45 dollars. Though we were in a smoke free room, the smell of cigarettes is still there. There are small holes in the wall plugged up with tissue paper. Those things aside, however, there's hot water if you wait a couple minutes, and plenty of it. There's cable television, large, clean beds (bring extra bedding if you're there during colder months, there's only sheets and a thin comforter,) fast wifi, though you need to ask for the password. The rooms are old, and you can tell, but they are clean. The attendances were helpful and friendly. There are no refunds here. There's no continental breakfast. There is a fridge in the room. Some other reviews mentioned bugs-- I saw none.

We had stayed at Granny;s Motel some years ago---- clearly under different ownership--- and had fond memories of our stay, including a lovely restaurant . We had wonderful meals and a comfortable night. Not so this trip! Some of the furniture probably was fro the previous, charming era, but overall the stay was worse than disappointing. When we entered our "non Smoking " room, there was a strong smell of smoke. The switch did not work on the lamp in the corner. The security lock on the door was broken . There was one bar of soap--- from a motel on the Jersey SHore. SLOW hot water--- wasn;r sure I would have a hot shower. HUGE holes in the driveway. Not at all sure that the towels were fresh---not necessarily used, but not clean, either. We won't be back....

Our family was on our way back from Hersheypark. We needed gas and decided to get off in Frackville. We saw from a distance a statue of "granny" with her grandchild. We needed to go back and take a picture next to it. Her grandchild was holding a doll with no head. That was creepy in itself. But once we saw the owner we decided to get the hell out of that place. Thus expirience shocked us severely for life. DO NOT STAY HERE. It was defiently a memory we will not forget.

Okay where to start... My cousin and I were taking a Pennsylvania road trip and said oh man we have to stay there! So we made a point of heading near granny's as the day got later only problem was we didn't know what a dump the place was! It was pitch black by the time we arrived we took one look at the place and got totally sketched out but unfortunately its the only place near there to stay that wasn't ridiculously over priced. The hotel owners speak little to no English. The rooms were disgusting.. We laughed the entire time because it literally couldn't have gotten any worse. And something about our neighbors in the motel made us sleep with every lock on the door engaged and the couch against the door just for good measure. Not a place for families spend the extra money! Also, no continental breakfast.

We booked rooms for family from out of town to stay here while they visited us for a week. This place turned out to be a dump. It doesn't appear to have been cleaned in years & did I mention BED BUGS! Members of our family got bitten by these bugs. The owners wouldn't do anything for them & don't seem to care how dirty this place is. Next time family comes in they will be staying somewhere different. If you need a place to stay, go somewhere else!

Worst motel I've ever been in. Had to get bed bug spray. Dirty. Only good thing was the hot water and shower. Seen bugs, my friend got bit several times. Could not get any refund back.could be renovated, but I guess the owners just don't care

Our room was clean, and we had goose down pillows! The room could be dated to the late 90's but it was excellent for the price! Furniture was worn, surely felt "lived in" but was comfortable. I slept wonderfully. I love tiny details and antiques. Nice paintings, little lace over the curtains. Private bathroom n shower was clean, new countertop. I bet it was real nice back in the day. Only complaint would be the old towels. We were cozy, had a safe place to sleep, and didn't cost much. Also, shampoo is not provided, but I carry my own anyway. Bars of soap are provided. I enjoyed our short stay. I would give 5 stars for comfort! Soft, clean bedding and wow goose down pillows!

Skip this hotel all together. At one time it was very nice, as was the restaurant and popular in the area since then whoever took it over ran it to the ground, there was a meth lab in there I read in the papers not too long ago.. How do u not know this as an owner??? No housekeeping 👍

This used to be a good place to stay when "granny" owned it but the last time I stayed here it was terrible. The new owners have closed the restaurant and run the motel into the ground. I definitely will not stay here again.
