Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Lancaster (Amish Country)
Ranked #6 of 39 Hotels in Lancaster
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 January 2010

Totally agreeing with other reviewers regarding the cleanliness, we found the very large rooms to be comfortable. Some of the furniture needed a bit of TLC, chipped paint and scuff marks.Though centrally located, noise proved to be an issue as the hotel is right on the highway. We were told that all of the two queen bedded rooms face the front so there is additional noise and ,like another reviewer,I concur that the heating unit was a bit noisy.
I enjoyed my run in the fitness room.
Staff could not have been nicer or more helpful.
Breakfast was an eye opener(no pun intended) when a guest arrived barefoot and wearing pajama bottoms. It was apparent he was comfortable coming down for his morning coffee.The hot choices included tasty sausage patties and hot, disc shaped omelets, both seemed to be cooked elsewhere and reheated. Cereals,good coffee,tea, hot chocolate, breakfast pastries, juices,fruit and hardboiled eggs rounded out the buffet.
Working a busy scheduleand not having much time to go to the movies, we were really impressed with the collection of DVDs the hotel offers to guests. Rooms are equipped with DVD players and we browsed a well thought out rated menu of movies.
Overall, it proved to be a very enjoyable stay.

What a great find and off the GPS at that. Right where you want to be to get around Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Very reasonably priced, we were surprised!
Very accommodating when we decided to stay two more days. We did change rooms, but since there were three of us, this was not a big deal. Same type of room a little different set up. Breakfast was good (and hot) every day. Next door to a good restaurant, if you wanted more.
This place is across the street from Dutch Wonderland and in between two outlet malls. Still, it was a very nice stay mid-week in October.

Lovely hotel - located across street from Dutch Wonderland. Lovely, clean, spacious, well appointed guestrooms. Feel of hotel is very cozy/homey when you arrive. Breakfast buffet is included in rate - VERY nice.
Staff is very gracious and accommodating. A special mention of "Kelly" at the Front Desk who was just wonderful to our family.
We are making a return trip in December to Lancaster County and will stay here again.

I have been to lancaster many times and decided to stay this time at Country inn and Suites mainly because it is located directly across the street from dutch wonderland which is why we went in the first place.

I was very impressed by the hotel as was my wife. Firstly, the staff are all very friendly starting from check in. Never had an attitude and always a smile. The room we had was a one bedroom suite. It was dated but kept clean and was decent size. The hotel had a fantastic indoor pool and whirlpool that the kids enjoyed and a separate room off the lobby for free internet usage.

The breakfast in the morning is free. The coffee was great and the remainder was typical of a deluxe continental breakfast and so that was a bonus. Overall i think our stay was great there and the location is perfect even to the outlets. My rate was $143/night for the one bedroom suite which i thought was good for what you get out of it. Would recommend this hotel. Last year i stayed at the marriott courtyard. While this hotel is nice it is out of the way and somewhat remote.

We traveled with another family and requested rooms that were near each other. The hotel obliged our request and put us on the 4th floor right next to each other. However, when we entered our room, we immediately smelled fresh smoke (this is a non-smoking property). Without any hassle, they moved us to the other side of our friend's room, giving us a complimentary bump to a one-bedroom suite in the process. We certainly couldn't ask for more than that! Despite previous reviews, we did not notice any loud noise from staying on the highway-side of the hotel. The room was large and very clean. There was a DVD Player hooked up to the main TV (in the family room) and we thought that was a great feature. The free continental breakfast was fine and had something for everyone. I was able to get a wireless connection for my laptop without any problem. Dutch Wonderland was a quick walk right across the highway. This hotel is a perfect location if you have young children and you need to come back to the room for a nap, etc. The pool was kid-friendly (only gets about 4 feet deep) and for once we found a jacuzzi that wasn't too hot and didn't prohibit children. We'll definitely stay here again the next time we visit Dutch Wonderland.

Just came back from Lancaster after staying at this hotel. I have been to Lancaster many times but this was the first time at the Country Inn. We had a regular room with two Queen beds. The room was very clean and up to date. Room included a minifridge and microwave. The bathroom was very clean and has a bath/shower and sink. Whats nice about the room is that just outside the bathroom their is another sink and mirror. This was great when someone was using the main bathroom. The hotel pool is indoors along with the whirlpool. The pool is not that large but good for kids. The pool goes from 3 1/2 feet to 4 feet at the deepest end. The Continental breakfast was sufficient and included boiled eggs and egg patties. This hotel is located right acroos the street from Dutch Wonderland. It is also a very short walk from the Tanger outlet Center. On the negative side the Fitnees center had no resistance equipment but good cardio equipment. Also I could not connect to the free internet on my notebook. When I complained to the front desk they gave me a help line number to call but I did not have the time or patience to call. They had a computer room with two desktops attached to printers that can also be used and they worked. Would definitley recommend this place.
