My husband, Portuguese Water Dog and I stayed there in September for 3 nights. Julia at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming to ALL of us. Greeted our dog with a doggie bag of bones and disposable plastic bags in a cute holder. Traveling with a dog I expected we would be put in a smelly old room. I was pleasantly surprised - this room was in a stand alone building on the first floor and while it could use some remodeling, it was clean and smelled nice - not like a chemical masking of odors. The hotel itself sits on lots of land so there were plenty of places for us to walk our dog, cute gazebos to sit in, benches, nice landscaping and beautiful views of cornfields/Amish buggies. Facilities included a nice fitness center with TV and sauna, outdoor heated circular pool with nice seating, restaurant on site. Breakfast was included and served in a nice sun room. It offered: waffle maker, eggs, sausage and biscuits, yogurt, fresh whole fruit, cereals, breads, juice, coffee. The attendant was very friendly and kept things stocked and clean. So as not to upset the dog or the maid (!) the front desk was very accommodating working with us to send the maid when we and the dog were out of the room. Less than 5 minutes from the Sight and Sound Theater where we saw "Noah" complete with live animals. Less than 10 minutes from Rockvale and Tanger shopping outlets. Hotel is walking distance to a small/new shopping complex with a pharmacy and pizza shop - Strasburg pizza. We ate there one night. The pizza was good and we were also treated to having the girl at the counter actually wait on us - brought us the pizza, plates, checked on us, brought us a box and cleaned up after us...very unusual to find in a take out kind of pizza place. Had an awful lunch at the Kentucky Fried Chicken/Long John Silver restaurant. Typical fast food which is what we expected but we did not expect to have the restaurant staff yelling at each other in Spanish, laughing loudly dancing around all while ignoring the very messy/unclean dining room area. Ate at Millers for the all you can eat. Food was good and the place was kept spotless - seemed there was an attendant for each serving station keeping it clean and stocked. And lastly, we had a lovely lunch at the Iron Horse Inn which allowed us to eat with our dog on the covered outside seating. They were very dog friendly and the food was upscale lunch food...e.g. used fresh mozzarella, fresh herbs, etc. but reasonably priced. Lastly, not to miss if you have a dog - go to the dog park by Franklin and Marshall college in Lancaster. Heard a local woman won the park in a contest. Outstanding - one side for smaller dogs, other for larger and all fenced in. All astro turfed with drinking fountains for the dogs, water park, bridge, complete with tennis balls/Frisbees and nice chairs for the owners to sit in the shade on a beautiful deck to watch the dogs. A must see even if you don't have a dog! Many of the college students missing theirs come over just to play with them. And of course our dog absolutely loved it so we went twice.
