“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 16 June 2010

This is the second time staying at this hotel, very clean room. Even though check-in wasn't til 4PM, I showed up ate 12:30 and they had my room ready. I would defiantly recommended this hotel for families with young children for Thomas( like I was) or for Dutch wonderland witch is right across the street.
Positives: free WiFI (not listed on website) only wired listed on web.I was surprised
Negatives: not enough tables in breakfast area, noisy from Hi way if you stay in the front of the hotel (request a room in the rear)

My family and I stayed at this hotel for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. It is conveniently located to all the area attractions and just steps away from Dutch Wonderland. We were able to walk there. The lobby is quite homey, welcoming, and decorated in a country style to reflect the area. The front staff was friendly and check in and check out was quite easy. We had a one bedroom suite which was clean and again homey feeling. The bedroom and bathroom were both a great size. The bed was comfortable and roomy. My daughter who is an avid reader really liked the fact that she could borrow books to read from the lobby. The continental breakfast was also great. It had a big selection which included many healthy choices. The staff there was also very friendly. We will be returning next year when we visit Dutch Wonderland again.

We stayed at this hotel on a special pay for 2 nights get 1 free . The suites,with a separate seating area , were very comfortable. They had a large indoor pool (that we were unable to use due to minor surgery the previous week). The continenttal breakfast was fine.
The hotel was in the area of the outlet malls, American Music Theater,Dutch Wonderland and a short drive from Sight and Sound Theater.

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.
