Recent guest reviews

All the Fixtures were very dated and it seemed like something right out of the 60's or 70's, the bath tub was quite small and the hotel staff didn't seem very friendly and wasn't able to multi task I End up waiting on them for a long time during check in while they where chit chatting with another guest, witch seems rather needless, I mean Ok I have nothing against small talk and entertaining your guests but they seems very disengaged and it seems very inappropriate when short staffed. Oh the tv was an old CRT too and half the channels didn't work, it was ok for the price I guess but still seems way over priced for what you get

Not worth the price they are charging. the rooms looks old and smelly....

Clean room, great restaurant across the street. The a/c worked well,but was a little loud and the TV needs to be updated. Well worth the price.

The beds are harder than rocks but the rooms are super clean and tidy, also TV is old CRT that needs degaussed heavily.

Nice and clean room. Beds were comfortable. Would stay again.

We stayed 1 night. The room was clean but the a/c and the bathroom fan were very noisy. Very slim pickings on the continental breakfast.

It was ok for a night, but not more. We were traveling with our 2-year old daughter and when we came into the room it had a very strange smell. The floor around the fridge was totally wet. I told it the desk clerk. The manager just said, that it does not matter and I should only place a towel on the carpet. Good idea with a two year old girl in the same room!!We booked the room with complimentary continental breakfast, because when you are traveling with children you cannot travel without something to eat in the morning. Funny was, that you only get toast on weekends.(we were there on a tuesday. The muffin was disgusting, it tasted like soap. So the only thing to eat were some plain cereals with milk!! We will never come back! When we book with complimentary continental breakfast, we are expecting at least some toast with butter or jam.....it was ridiculous! But the hotel is placed very good. From the hotel you can discover the Armish-region very well.

The hotel was clean and good price to stay. Glad that I stayed at the hotel.

Clean room, Courteous staff, very affordable. Nothing fancy but a great value and great location. Some wifi issues but no other complaints!

We wanted to have a better room because they were under renovations. The person at the front desk decided they would cancel our reservation. We tried to talk to the manager. The person Was rather rude. Our advise: Go somewhere else. At the end that is what we díd. Luckily we found a better hotel. We paíd a little more but it Was worth the price.

Good value, comfy beds. Right along main road, The beds were very comfortable and the price was value range

Rooms have not been updated in quite some time and man at front desk was not very welcoming. Pool was best part of whole experience.

We arrived at 2am from NC. The greeting was curt, rude, and basically I was annoying him because he had to get out of bed to check us in. The next day, on July 4th, we returned to the hotel after 11pm, because we were out late visiting family in the area and attending fireworks late. We found our room had not been cleaned. A "do not disturb" sign was hung on the door and a card saying "sorry, you had your sign up"... well, we NEVER put that sign up and I wanted that room cleaned! So we go to the office to get clean towels to shower (their idea of clean left a lot to be desired as well, old yellow stains on the towels were pretty gross). Well, we are told NO, we cannot have clean towels until morning~!?!? Are you serious? YES, they were serious. This is the WORST treatment I have EVER received at a hotel. Do these people not understand they are in the hospitality business? I guess where they come from, they don't care about basic hospitality! I went to Wal-mart the next day and bought beach towels so I would have my own clean towels. Will never stay here again. Would NEVER recommend this place even to my worst enemies because I just don't treat people like that. The next night, we saw people walking from the office with towels they had just received from the office (we asked them!). I guess they decided to keep some towels in the office after our tirade. Too little, too late!!

Checked in on Friday evening and stayed until Sunday morning. Basically only needed somewhere to spend the evenings. My sister and I just needed to getaway and had come for the shopping. Only complaint really was with the housekeeping done on Saturday... The only thing could tell that was done was that we were provided with clean towels. The ashtray was not emptied, the toothpaste was not replenished (not a big deal since we had brought our own) and no new cups were left. The location was great. Everything we had wanted to do was within a few miles. Would definitely stay here again if ever back in the area.

Was not happy to find out I had to pay an additional $20 for a porta-crib. Felt it should have been included in the cost of the room - after all I paid for 5 people which included an 11 month old.Beds were comfortable but rooms need a little tender loving care and refurbishing. Nice to have 3 double beds in a spacious room. Would have been great if we had a microwave to heat baby's food.

staff not friendly at all. We really appreciated the 3 double beds in our room. I have never stayed anywhere with 3 beds in one room. It was perfect for a girls getaway weekend.

My family went to the Day Out With Thomas at Strasburg RR, and stayed 2 nites in this motel. We had stayed there last year,and this year, more of the family went and we had two connecting rooms. The location was perfect, everything was perfect, and we'll be back again next year..

We stayed overnight because my son gets car sick. The room was very clean and was perfect for us. Location to Thomas the Train at Strasburg Railway was ideal and the restaurant across the street was also very good for breakfast. We would reccommend this hotel to our friends and family.

Great to explore Amish country with our friends and their children from England. We did shopping, Hershey Park, Amish buggy ride and sampling great Pennsylvania Dutch food.

We stayed here for a simple night's sleep and the pool. It had both. The air was not that powerful in the room and the attendant was definitely not a friendly type, which bothers me. Other than that, it was a motel and it served its purpose.
