“Good choice in Lancaster”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

great location -- right in the middle of everything, which has its pros and cons. Half the rooms face busy Route 30, and if noise bothers you, this may be an issue. We booked online, and asked for a room facing the back (TA advice), but apparently, that request wasn't recorded. There were several group busloads when we were there, and therefore, the breakfast (and the cookies) were devoured before we came. We didn't try the pool or jacuzzi, but they looked perfectly fine. Room decor was very nice -- with "Amish" quilts, etc. Bed was comfy, but pillows less so (like so many chain hotels). All in all, Country Inn & Suites is one of the better chains, the price is reasonable, and despite the above comments, we would recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed her for 1 night in April 2012. It is right across from Dutch Wonderland. It is very clean. We had a microwave & frig in the room. We used the heated indoor pool and the hot tub...both were nice. There were free cookies & coffe & tea in the lobby. The free breakfast consisted of: eggs, sausage, cereal, oatmeal, homemade waffles, yogurt, pastries, bagels, juices, milk & hot drinks. Quality of food was good and they continuously kept it filled. We would stay here again.

We stayed here on a recent overnight trip to Lancaster and were thrilled with a 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite for a very reasonable rate. The front desk is very friendly and the breakfast is plentiful. The decor is a little dated, but the rooms were clean. The only downside was the noisy air-conditioner which we couldn't keep on long because it kept the kids from sleeping. We would definitely choose to stay at the Country Inn & Suites in Lancaster again.

Everything about our stay was excellent. Only negative was minor (bathroom didn't seem to have exhaust fan). Front desk staff especially the overnight shift woman was helpful and cheerful. Kids enjoyed indoor heated pool and hot breakfast. Will definitely stay here again when we come back for Dutch Wonderland (just across the street) if we can get bedroom suite again!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last night since we were attending a concert at The American Music Theater (located nearby). This hotel is actually located right across the street from Dutch Wonderland. This hotel is quiet spacious and very clean. Although I was not very happy with the room. It is quite dated. The mattress' and pillows were extremely soft and lumpy. Didn't make for a good nights sleep. The carpet was also worn out. When you enter the hotel lobby you are greeted with warm coffee and cookies. And a book shelf with plenty of books to read. The breakfast in the morning wasn't very well stocked with many tables not cleaned.The food needs improvement. If they would just update the rooms it would be a nice place to stay and it is very nicely located to all the amish sites. So overall, I'm not sure that I would stay here again.

I attend a yearly convention in Lancaster and have stayed at many different hotels. This one by far was the nicest and cleanest one I have stayed at to date. We arrived early and were allowed to check in. We were offered freshly baked cookies at our check-in which was a nice treat. I found the staff to be very friendly, from the cheerful man who was in charge of the breakfast to the staff behind the desk. Everyone was pleasant and smiling.

Our room was very quite nice. There were 2 queen size beds, a sitting area with a small sofa and easy chair, a desk, microwave and small refrigerator. Although it is right off of Route 30 the room was quite quiet. After staying in some pretty substandard places around Lancaster I think I have finally found one that I will return to!

Everytime I make a trip out to Lancaster, I can't wait to arrive at this hotel :) Everything about it is amazing, from the endless ammounts of coffee/tea and cookies, from the huge size of the rooms.

I always get the suite and really enjoy the 3 beds and the closed door between the rooms for those people who like to stay up late and watch tv, while the others can go right to sleep. The mini fridge really works out well when you buy whoppie pies - they won't go bad, but check the cold settings - I had a water bottle turn to ice!

The wi-fi is super fast and the breakfast buffet is above expectations with fried eggs and sausages and biscuits with gravy :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the highway, but the golf course in the back - it's nice an...
