    Lancaster was just beautiful with the nice corn growing in the fields. The Budget Host Inn & Suites hotel location was only minutes away from the Farms, Sight & Sound Theater, and the many shopping outlets. Our room was spacious and the indoor pool and waterpark excellent for the kids. Very one we met was polite. Great visit to Lancaster.

    Awful place!

    from

    We arrived on August 4th after staying in a lovely hotel in New York. We unpacked all out things then looked at each other and said, "We can't stay here!" The toilet seat fastenings were broken and the bathroom floor was sticky! The door into the room was covered in dirty fingerprints, as was the casing of the hanging space. The TV remote control was broken. All over the door were fastened 'do's' and 'dont's' including one notice that said the room would be checked before we left to check that we had not taken anything! We have stayed in hotels throughout the USA, Europe, Asia and Africa and have never come across this before.

    I booked this hotel on a cousin's recommendation - she had stayed there 5 years ago but interestingly enough this hotel no longer features on the Lancaster official site. Thankfully we found another hotel, along the road,for our 3 night stay - it was clean and cosy. I hope I never have to set foot in such an awful hotel again!!

    from

    Lots of shopping on this street. Room was clean, but in terrible condition. Everyhing was very old and very worn. Appeared that nothing was updated for years! Bed was hard as a rock with matching pillows that were flat as a pancake. TV was small with some snow channels. Airconditioning loud and breezy. Not protected from hallway sound. They even ran out of the breakfast if you do not get to it early. Although we booked months inadvance for three nights, staff would not give us another room - or pillows! we paid the managers special (internet) - we did not find it special. Many comparably priced hotels in this area so will not stay here again.

    The worst

    from

    Our room was so dirty you had to where your shoes to keep from sticking to the floor. Mattress was extremely lumpy. Room smelled terrible like must and mold. The bathroom door and door knob where cruddy with dirt. They had one newspaper to be shared by everyone eating the "deluxe" continentel breakfast. I stayed here based on the previous reviews and maybe they had a better room. I sure hope so. I will never stay at another Howard Johnsons. If you decide to stay here check your room before you pay.

    Nice hotel; wish it had wi-fi internet, but overall good

    from

    Great hotel -- they are currently in the process of renovations, and the room we stayed in had nice new carpet. Big rooms (high ceilings!) and extra space for lots of suitcases. I wish this hotel had wireless internet access-- it is really hard to come by in Lancaster, PA hotel. Even just a wireless device in the lobby would really be of great value. It has a pool and breakfast, although breakfast is only served until 9:00 a.m. even on a Sunday morning. Another nice feature of this hotel is its size-- I asked for a quiet room away from other guests and got it. I don't know if it would fill up in the summer, but it February it certainly was nice. I wish all HVAC systems in each room would shut off when the desired temperature was achieved. This hotel, like many others, when you turn on the unit, the fan will run constantly, all night, so you have air blowing on you. It doesn't seem like it would cost too much to install a temperature guage, but too few hotels to do it.

    Overall, though, great hotel and I would stay there again.

    VERY pleased!

    from

    My husband and I stayed here the 19th of Dec. It wasn't fancy at all, but very clean, with a queen-size bed. Didn't have a refrigerator or microwave, but did have an iron/board, hair dryer, tv, heat/ac, as well as an in-room coffee maker. Nice clean bathroom and shower. Plenty of hot water and pressure. There was an indoor pool, but we didn't have time to use it. It also included a continental breakfast. Typical of thoses types, but even had a toaster, and some don't. It was great, especially for free! The room rate was VERY good. It was less than $38/night, including breakfast!!!!!!! We're definately staying there again!!!!!

    Hojo was great... will return

    from

    We stayed in June, 2004. Came in very late and very tired after a full day at Hershey Park. Took less than 5 minutes to check in to a friendly staff. The crib was waiting in the room, all set up. The room (2 double beds) was larger than most regular rooms of this type. We had lots of room with the crib as well. The breakfast was ok (juice, donuts, muffins, 2 cereals, oranges and apples).

    The staff was very nice, every request I made both before I got to the hotel and during our stay was graciously granted.

    The only thing that could improve would be the breakfast, but what do you expect for free????

    Great value

    from

    Had a lovely overnight stay at this property. I got a great deal of $36 for the night, which was certainly a great value. The room was clean and in order, everything was in working condition, coffee/condiments were stocked, comfortable bed, nice decor and quiet. I would consider staying here again, especially for this price.

    ... cows had docked tails but not all so I hope the docking the tails of dairy cows is not a regular practice.

    The farmers are getting their feed supplies ready for the winter and we saw many bales and rolls stacked up. We were in Amish country and saw a farmer cutting his crop using a horse to pull the hay mower. Passed a number of Amish people in their horse drawn buggies. It looks as though the women may use closed buggies while the men drive in open ones. Their farm houses ...

    The American National Park System has over 300 units which range from the famous major national parks to smaller national monuments and a large number of historic sites such as Civil War battlefields and presidential homes. There's one unit in southeastern Pennsylvania that shows up on the list and maps that I’ve long wondered about but heard nothing – Hopewell Furnace National Historic Park.

    I went to two such smorgasbords, Miller’s in Soudersburg and Shady Maple in Blue Ball. These aren’t just your standard dull American buffet restaurants but actually feature lots of unique Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine you won’t usually find elsewhere. Such as?

The beer recipes are actually very close to the originals created by George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Alexander Hamilton. Blake couldn’t stop in Philadelphia without a philly cheesesteak so with a little research we made it to the famous ...
