Country Hearth Inn closing

Please note that the Country Hearth Inn at 30 Keller Avenue in Lancaster (near the Amtrak station) will be closing 2/15/2012. How sad =:(

JK-the hotel, in my opinion, should have closed a long time ago. It is run down and has had a lot of police incidents in recent years, most notably a shooting at Rookies (the hotel's bar). It was named one of America's dirtiest hotels by this web site several years in a row when it was still a Days Inn. Just thought that others would be glad to hear that this eyesore will close tomorrow.

That property should just be demolished, IMO. What an eyesore! If it's not knocked down, some other sub-par motel company will move in and the situation won't be any better.

The hotel is closing for good (today) and will be fenced off. It is possible that the hotel will be replaced by a parking garage for the adjacent Amtrak station.

sac, I honestly thought it had closed quite a while ago. Every time I drove by there were always only a handful of cars there; I assumed they were just renting rooms to transients but the lobby area never had any cars and looked empty.

This hotel's time had passed a long time ago. There are several other old lodging properties in Lancaster that may have been in their prime years ago, but need to meet the same fate as this one. It's high time to weed out these eyesores.

Lynne, it doesn't sound as if you will lay down in front of the bulldozers!

I think many would agree with you, at least about this property...there may even be a cheering crowd on hand.

The fire department found a great use for it!

Will the bulldozers then head to The Brunswick next?
