Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

Our family stayed at the motel last night. We really liked this facility. Clean and comfortable. Rooms are your basic motor lodge style with parking at your door. Front desk staff was super nice and even signed me up for the VIP program and gave me a loaf of pumpkin bread. It was nice sitting out on the front lawn before sunrise and listening to the farm across the road waking up. Hope to be back real soon!

Don't expect anything fancy, but if you're okay staying at a clean place with knowledgeable and polite staff, stay here. Clearly the staff takes care of the property well because our room was very clean, included a little refrigerator and the basic toiletries. Since we are big eco-conscious people, we liked the fact that they had shampoo in a shower dispenser instead of wasting all of those tiny traveler shampoo bottles. Beds were comfortable, nice pillows and the Amish quilt was a nice touch. PLUS it wasn't one of those gross comforter tops that a lot of motels have. This place is located on a major road which is close to Amish activities and we appreciated the lawn chairs at the front of the property where you can sit and watch the pretty scenery or any passing Amish people on their buggies. Our only complaint was that the curtains in our room didn't exactly close all the way. :/
If you want a nice stay without the high price, you will be satisfied. We will definitely book here again next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: You park right in front of your room, so they all seem pretty safe.

Great place just to kick back and relax. This is my most favorite destination for some real R&R. The area is very peaceful and my family always enjoy the pool, which is kept very clean. Believe me when I tell you that I've been many places for vacations with all the running around trying to meet schedules and time frames. This is the place you go to for a relaxing vacation. The area sites are many and it is within a short distance from some good old home cooking. Try it.

This is a small family owned motel , nothing fancy, but has everything you need & is very clean.
The rooms are nice with a good size refrigerator for all your goodies you buy, the bathroom is small but clean, lots of towels & towels in your room for swimming in their nice little pool.

They have chairs out front to sit & watch the traffic & amish buggies go by, which is nice & relaxing.

The package deal includes an amish tour & it was great. The guide Nancy was very informative & funny. They stop at several amish businesses to shop & look around, all were nice,

Package deal also includes breakfast & dinner buffets at the Bird in Hand restaurant & the meals were very good.

If you want a nice little motel with all you really need & is clean, this is a great place.

We arrived to the motel very late for our check-in. Thankfully, I called early to tell them this would happen and they left the key for us, since there's no one in the office that late (though they do have a way to reach someone). This is a no-frills motel, but it was very comfortable & we would stay here again.

The bed was comfy, there are a ton of channels on the tv and the AC worked great especially considering how hot & humid it was!

Beware of the bathroom soap - it's the kind that doesn't rinse off very easily. And they have a shampoo dispenser, not travel size bottles, so you should definitely consider bringing your own toiletries.

The lady at the front desk in the morning (I think her name was Donna or Debbie?) was super nice!

We were very impressed by how well the rooms stood the test of time. I believe I read somewhere that they had been renovated in 2005 (not sure if that's true). They were very clean and clearly well-taken care of.

If you want an experience from the past that measures up to present standards, then this little motel near Lancaster will fill the bill. Room was nothing fancy, but met all of our expectations. The bed was better than most you will find in the big chains. Be sure to sit in the chairs out front and watch the world pass you by, including the local Amish.
