I'm about to start planning a trip that will include Eastern Pennsylvania, possibly Philadelphia, Lancaster, Gettysburg and Hershey. I have never been to this area before and would like a little help. I realize Philadelphia is a city and will look at it differently, so my question is more about the other locales.
I'm looking for advice that will help me sift through all the data and opinions regarding choosing places to stay. I mostly want to know which complaints are common so I can give them proper weight in the decision process.
I know Las Vegas VERY well. So I can read TR's or reviews and know which complaints to ignore. The most common LV hotel complaints (besides the price of things) are: No coffee makers in room, there is a fee for internet use, and you have to pay around $25 to use the gym. I'm not trying to minimize these complaints, but the reviewers don't realize these items are common to all LV hotels. So they should be non-factors in choosing a hotel. These reveiwers often let these complaints color their opinions of the hotel. But I know this so I can take this into account when reading their review.
So what I'm asking is if there are any common complaints about lodging in your area that I should consider the norm rather than the exception when reading reviews?
I hope this make sense, and appreciate any help or advice.
