“Quite noisy location right next to highway”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We booked this hotel due to all the positive reviews I found on Tripadvisor. When we stayed there, we were a little disappointed, however. I had asked for a room facing the rear of the building because other reviewers had suggested this, but instead we got a room facing the front with all the noise coming from the highway which is used especially by trucks. As the road slopes slightly down, their engine brakes are quite loud. And there is traffic all night long! Besides, we could hear a loud noise on and off coming from some kind of air-conditioning outside. All in all, we had a very hard time sleeping.
The hotel is very conveniently located for Tanger Outlets where you can find quite a few bargains. Other attractions are the Amish. In the vicinity, there are a few places where you can book bus tours or look at Amish houses and farms.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the rear of the building and INSIST on it!

We got the suite and it was well worth the money. We could close the door while our son rested and visit with our relatives in the other room. It has sofa , chair ,tv,etc.
This hotel has a very nice indoor pool.
The check in girl was very nice.
The breakfast was good.
The room was clean.
We were happy with this hotel.
It is not too far from sight and sound theater.

We went to the country inn and suites June 14-15. I was very happy with my stay, the room was huge. It could easily fit 6, but it was me, my husband, and 2 girls ( aged 4 and 6). There was a room with 2 double beds plus another room with a pull out couch, tv, microwave, and mini fridge. There was another tv in the bedroom as well. The room was super clean and the bathroom had double sinks. In addition to this there's a free breakfast which was very nice with waffles, eggs, sausage, potatoes, a variety of cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, mixed fruit, apples, bananas, and a bread section with bagels, bread, muffins, etc. it was very nice, there were plenty of tables but it was crowded and we managed to get the last one. Our stay there was great, we used the indoor pool the first evening we were there. It was very clean and not too chloriney. There were also towels available which is always great and it's opened until 10:30 which is a great bonus especially if you have older kids. Best of all it's centrally located and right on the main road. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return.

This was our third time staying at Country Inn & Suites and it's still top notch. Bedrooms were clean and well maintained, many, many breakfast options, free cookies and coffee in the lounge and the kids loved the indoor swimming pool. Great location right across the street from Dutch Wonderland. Check out at 9:50 and you're in the park at 10:00...couldn't be easier!

Just finished up five days at this hotel. We stayed in room 420 which had 2 queens, a great country look, was really large (you could easily fit a roll away bed inside), beautiful bathroom, with very firm mattresses (which I really liked. My wife not so much). The continental breakfast consisted of about seven different cereals, daily homemade crumb cake, bagels and breads, hard boiled eggs, juices, teas (a LOT of different flavors). Had a pretty large pool and Jacuzzi. But for me the greatest selling point...it was pure quietness at night!!! I don't remember hearing a door slam/open, people in the hallway on the weekends. We were almost the only ones on our wing during the weekdays. Shower head made a squealing noise but other than that...a great room and time.

Room Tip: A LOT of the rooms on the 1st and 2nd floors have a sliding glass door that leads to a small deck wi...

One of the few hotel we will stay in while traveling in Lancaster Pa. Always clean, courteous staff, and easy to book. I usually book online, and the last time I requested a first floor room in the back of the hotel. This hotel is on a busy highway so to get away from the truck noise I requested this. When we checked in, we were informed that we had been upgraded to a suite at no extra charge because they wanted to honor my request and this was how they did it. We were very pleasantly surprised. I would recommend this hotel chain to anyone. It's one of our favorites.
