“Like the sign says out front-"Comfortable, Friendly, Clean"”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We just returned from our stay at the Weathervane. This is a lovely motel. The rooms are immaculate - so clean. This is a family owned place and they are the most wonderful people. They have made so many upgrades to the rooms and the grounds outside. The beds are very comfortable, flat screen tv's, granite countertops, beautiful outdoor sitting areas, and a very nice breakfast in the morning. You will definitely feel comfortable and welcomed here. The family goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant.
It is centrally located to shopping and restaurants on Rt. 30, but it's very quiet and peaceful.
Thanks so much, Nick and family. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon!

I thought the price was a bit high for what we got, but it is clean, spacious, and in a great location - dab smack in the middle of Amish Country - which is why you are here, right? cute character on the outside but nothing fancy on the inside. If I were anywhere else, the rate would be about 15.00 cheaper. The staff was very nice. We had a good sleep. The breakfast was nothing special at all - donuts, bagels, and the like. We had no complaints - but, again, it is a bit pricey for such average accomodations. I would stay here again for sure if I wanted to come back to this area.

I just returned this past weekend with my wife and grand daughter. This place is a FAMILY OWNED and OPERATED property. You feel welcomed from the moment you arrive to the time you check out. This place is small which is good because they are able to keep the place very clean both inside ond outside. The rooms are CLEAN and well taken care of. The beds are comfortable and for me that is the most important part of the room, with new TVs and free internet if you have a tablet or I pad. Close to everything in Lancaster. just off route 30 on 896, across road from Rockville center, and down the road from Dutch Wonderland, Tangers, Sights and Sounds.

Room Tip: All rooms are on ground level. If you are going and need a place for comfort and conviences, this is...

Traveled with family for a two night stay in Lancaster, and have to say it was so cozy and peaceful, and clean, Can't honestly believe how cheap the price was for such a lovely place and free breakfast! When planning our trip, I researched the reviews of places to stay and I was satisfied enough to book this place and was sure glad I did. Let's face it, if you are sightseeing and would love a nice clean place to rest your head, then this is the place...If you are looking for a pool, fitness center, or other amenities then this is not the place for you. We parked infront of our room, our room was 35 which is located right off the traffic of the busy Route 30/ 896 and we did not hear any noise at all. Breakfast is a nice variety of ceareals cold/hot coffee,tea, juices, bagels, toast, cream cheese, jellies, fruit, etc...Enough to get you started and fill you till lunch time. This is a family run business and I will go back again, the family went through great lengths to do major renovations and upgrades to the property and it has paid off for them, the grounds are beautiful as well.

Was not fancy, but had everything we needed. The staff was wonderful; they went above and beyond whatever our requests were. I had left much needed medication, and when it arrived by mail, they immediately called our room, then was so careful in making sure it went to the proper person! So quiet and peaceful, yet right off the main route 30 . Loved it!

Room Tip: No swimming pool, or fitness center, we only needed a place to rest and our belongings safe!

I stayed at the Weathervane this past week for 2 nites. Checked in Wednesday and checked out Friday. Came with my sister & brother-in-law. We wanted a quick getaway, to do some relaxing, shopping, & to see the show at Sights & Sounds Theatre. My sister did a ton of research on tripadvisor on hotels in the area. After reading all the wonderful reviews, and seeing the price, she chose Weathervane. Well, where should I start? EVERYTHING was wonderful. I mean, first of all - the price for 3 people was unbelievable! We got there, and Charlie checked us in - friendly and welcoming. Your parking space is right in front of your door. The room was spacious and SPOTLESS CLEAN! Fresh smelling, & the Air conditioner was awesome! Rooms look freshly painted - very pretty colors. Bathroom - very clean (that's always something I look at!) Small fridge and microwave in room. The grounds of the motel are impeccable - flowers, gazebos (that light up at night) lounge chairs, picnic tables and benches.
The next day we went for the free continental breakfast - we were very satisfied considering it was free - coffee, tea, orange & apple juice, fruit, oatmeal, dry cereal, assorted bagels, danish and donuts. We thought the variety was fine - with all the awesome restaurants & smorgasbords in the area, who needs a bigger breakfast - it was enough to get our day started! We met Nick - the owner and his wife - SUCH A GREAT FAMILY! You can see how much they care about keeping their hotel beautiful, clean and running well, and making their guests comfortable and happy. We chatted with them awhile on our 2nd day after breakfast - very friendly and welcoming! Also speaking of comfy - the beds and pillows were very comfy - also something important to me when I stay in a hotel. Finally - the convenience of this motel could not be beat - Rockvale Outlets right across the street, and everything else on the two connecting roads where the Weathervane is located. WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO COMING BACK AGAIN, AND RECOMMEND THIS MOTEL TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR AN INEXPENSIVE, BUT CLEAN, FRIENDLY COMFY PLACE to stay after seeing all the Lancaster sights!!! LOVED IT!

Room Tip: Just an FYI - if you are looking for amenities such as a pool or fitness center - they don't hav...

You will not be disappointed when you stay at the Weathervane Motel. Nick and his family work hard to make your stay with them pleasant. Weathervane provides a very reasonable value and is very close to most of the places of interest. Shopping, site seeing, and eateries are just around the corner. The rooms are very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the continental breakfast is good. Coffee, cereal, juices, donuts. Major stores are located just a mile or two west on route 30. Of all the motels I have stayed at you will not receive any where near the hospitality you receive here at the Weathervane. This was our third stay with Nick and the family and we will return again soon. Thank you Nick, Shradhdha, and family.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are less noisy.
