“Nice Motel”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

I was skeptical after reading some mixed reviews on the Carriage House Inn, but took a chance. We rented the three-room (2 bedrooms with a sitting room) "suite" since we have two small children and like a place to sit after they go to bed. The only surprise was that the room was right off the office/breakfast area (and I mean RIGHT THERE), which I might have wanted to know in advance. Otherwise, most all other rooms are typical motel-style, all in a row accessible from the outside/parking lot. One nice surprise was that there was a mini-fridge and microwave--great for travel with young ones. But that aside, the staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean and mattresses and sheets brand new (don't know what the July 2012 reviewer was talking about). I mean, it's a motel, not a 5-star hotel, so if your expectation is that you'll stay in a place with slightly outdated furniture, but which is otherwise safe, friendly and clean, stay there--it's affordable and convenient. The Carriage House Inn is across the street from one restaurant and a very, very short drive to all the railroad museums and attractions. (I don't believe any of the local hotels are walkable to these places.) I would stay here again in a heartbeat and encourage others to as well.

Returning vistor, have been coming here a long time. It's a simple room, good price, excellent location- very close to Railroad, Cherry Crest farms and other local attractions. Great place to just sleep if that's all you are looking for. Staff is very friendly and accomodating.

Went to this motel on vacation for the first time. This is an older style, nice rural motel with friendly staff. Not a huge selection for continental breakfast. Affordable, quiet, clean motel in good location.Close to all attractions including Strasburg and Sight and Sound Theater.

Booked here from believing the Inn's own description of it's rooms and reviews on here stating cleanliness. The Carriage Inn info on amishcountryinns states it's an "upscale country" Inn and that "all rooms were recently remodeled". Not true, unless a possible fresh coat of paint is the equivalent of a remodel. When we registered in the office I was excited to see it was very nice and clean, thinking our room would surely be as pleasant. Wrong. I think the remodel refers to their office only. Disappointed when we were in our room. Dark, not clean, and by no means certainly not remodeled! Our sheets did not cover the beds so we saw the filthy, torn, worn, stained and just old, old,old and disgusting mattresses. My kids actually asked if they could just sleep in the truck for the night. The rug wasn't vacuumed prior to us entering, there were chips and crumbs on the floor in plain sight and on a love seat. Also piles of pet hair accumulated along walls, where a vacuum hose would be needed, but you would think they would still clean it.Our coffee pot was never cleaned. The fridge did not work, probably b/c the outlets did not hold a plug @ all. Not "upscale country" @ all, no decor what so ever. We are simple and just wanted a clean stay, but the mattresses really grossed us out along w/the sheets-bedding. It was obvious they hadn't been washed prior to us, they were off white/dingy. Yup, they are "pet friendly'"as we saw a couple of fleas in the room! No updates in the room what-so-ever as they describe. Don't care about an old bathroom, but old mattresses should be updated for sure! Oh, no smoke detectors or sprinklers in rooms either. People were nice and friendly, but we were grossed out w/the very old,ripped dirty mattresses and cleanliness of the room as a whole. Disappointed. Just wanted to do this review for families out there that look for decent, clean and comfortable places to stay w/their kids. We love "no frills" and it's in a beautiful area, but won't stay here again, just not clean. Disappointed

While arriving to Lancaster area late in the evening, we were having a hard time finding a vacancy and were referred to this inn by a nearby Best Western. Location of the inn is quite good, right in the town of Strasburg, close to the railroad and the Antique market. The inn is older and seems failry typical for a motor inn, although it is pet friendly and has a spacious open space for the pets. The room was generally clean, but the carpets were older and I detected a bit of an odor which didn't seem to bother others in our group. The bathrooms were clean. The mattresses as well as furnishings are fairly old and updating them as well as changing the carpeting would really give this otherwise pleasant inn an edge. I must note that the fornt desk staff was most welcoming, warm and friendly and truly made us feel comfortable and at home. That alone goes a loooooooooooong way in my book!!!

We along with 2 other couples were visiting the area for a week in May 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and comfortable and also pet friendly. They have a nice grassy area in the back of the office which is ideal for the pets to romp and play. We love the location too; close to all the major attractions. It's definitely worth staying here and we will continue to be repeat customers along with our pets.

Stayed here with my boyfriend and my parents. Great customer service, would stay here again in a heartbeat. Stayed one night tobe closer to a mud sale, clean room friendly staff. Only one little complaint, the outlets were very loose and my cell phone didn't charge because it fell out of the outlet in the middle of the night.

Room Tip: Love that the online reservation feature allows you to choose your exact room
