“Seems like our home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

This was our second stay at the Travelers Rest Motel this year. It just seems to put us in relax mode while there. Spent a good deal of time lounging in the front lawn and once again the breakfast w/Linda was most enjoyable. We attended the Banquet in a Cornfield that was offered by the owners, John and Myrna Smucker at their farm outside of Bird-in-Hand. This was so much fun. We rode to the farm on hay wagons , through a cornfield, and when we arrived a great bar-b-que was waiting for us. Those Smuckers really know the hospitality business. Great time was had by all.

Room Tip: We prefer rooms on opposite end from office, good exercise to walk for breakfast

Pretty good for a motor court motel. The room was clean, and had a flatscreen TV. The breakfast was yummy (oatmeal and fixin's, you-make-waffles, plus all the usual lineup). The comp Amish bus ride was wonderful, full of information about the Amish and stops at local Amish farm stands. At one, you could buy homemade ice cream for $1.50 a cone. At another, homemade soft pretzels and rootbeer. Lots of shopping ops. We used the pool at the Bird-in-Hand motel, and that was clean, although not enough shade. The motel is close to anything you might want to go to, but quiet enough to hear the clop-clopping of horses hooves.

Well situated, this old style motel was just fine for the one night we were there. Clean, comfortable, low price, convenient to all attractions. We had zero issues. Pleasant staff, decent breakfast. Weather was lousy, but the hotel warm and dry.

Travelers Rest Motel brings back fond memories for those of us old enough to remember old-fashioned motor court motels. This motel is top-notch in virtually all respects. Travelers Rest is conveniently located in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country on the Old Philadelphia Pike in Intercourse, PA.

My wife and I initially booked a one-night stay on the Internet for $94 per night. The rate included a delicious breakfast. We enjoyed our stay in Lancaster County so much that we extended for an additional night. Management graciously honored our previously discounted rate (about $10 off the rack rate.)

SERVICE:

The service at Travelers Rest can best be described as warm and genuine. From the front desk to the cleaning staff, no request is too big or small. Whether it's accommodating a request to freeze ice packs or keeping the breakfast bar fresh and hot, the staff is always on the mark. There is also a complimentary bus tour of various nearby Amish farms and shops. The tour is well-worth the time. My only criticism would be the intermittent WIFI service. My recommendation would be to get a room close to the motel office if Internet is a necessity.

VALUE:

Overall, Travelers Rest provides good value for the money compared to the cost of other accommodations in Lancaster County. Rooms seem to be priced just right as the motel remains full... even during weekdays.

SLEEP QUALITY:

The quality of sleep we enjoyed at Travelers Rest was outstanding. We stayed in both twin standard and king-sized bedrooms. The beds are comfortable and lull the weary traveler into deep and pleasant sleep. Even though the motel is situated on State Hwy 340, the noise from the highway is barely noticeable inside the rooms.

CLEANLINESS:

Travelers Rest Motel is one of the most immaculate accommodations I have ever stayed in. I defy anyone to find a spec of dust, dirt or mildew anywhere. The linens are clean and fresh. Curtains, furnishings and fixtures are kept spic and span.

LOCATION:

One could not ask for a better location than Travelers Rest Motel. Located on Old Philadelphia Pike in the heart of Lancaster County, all major PA Dutch attractions are no more than a 15-minute drive from the motel.

ROOMS:

The rooms are right-sized for a couple on vacation. The units are well-appointed and the furniture is in excellent condition. The rooms are immaculate and well-maintained... as is the remainder of the hotel. Each room includes cable TV, a telephone, hair-dryer, coffee service and a refrigerator. I was also pleased to see a throwback to a simpler time... an installed bottle opener on the entrance to the bathroom. A combination tub/shower is installed in each bathroom along with a shampoo dispenser so hair can be washed without losing the tiny shampoo bottle. In some of the rooms, activating the shower may be a little tricky for some. Just follow the directions on the faucet and pull the spout.

RESTAURANT/BREAKFAST ROOM:

The only meal served is a daily complimentary breakfast from 7:00 am - 10:00 am. The food is fresh and the serving trays are kept full. Both my wife and I enjoyed the fresh fruit, cereal, toasted bread, bagels, muffins, biscuits, waffles and sausage gravy. A stockpile of cream cheese, butter, jelly and peanut butter is maintained to top of your favorite bread, muffin or bagel. Fresh coffee is available throughout the day. The breakfast is good... and should last even the hungriest traveler through lunch time.

Based upon our recent experience at Travelers Rest Motel, my wife and I highly recommend this gem of a motel in the heart of Amish country.

Room Tip: Internet is spotty at best. If you require good Internet connectivity, I recommend getting a room ne...

We have used the Travelers many times and always have been very pleased with the service. The continental breakfast is always great and plenty of it . The rooms are always spotless. The bus tour is always informative. You have the use of the pool at the Bird-in-Hand. It is within walking distance to many of the stores and The Kettle Village Shopping area.

Room Tip: Rooms near the office aren't as quiet. Choose the north or east side.

My wife & I had a wonderful stay at the Traveler's Rest recently. It was our first time here & we loved it. The room was spacious & clean, nicely decorated & close to all nearby attractions, main roads etc in Intercourse. Very safe area in the heart of the Amish country farmlands. The continental breakfast was very good & the eating room was super clean. This was one of the nicest places that we have stayed in & we have been going to Amish country for at least 25 years. Upon leaving, we forgot a suitcase & they mailed it to us in a few days with everything intact, including some valuable items in there. Wonderful staff. We will return. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: All the rooms were convenient to the office & breakfast room.
