    Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites Lancaster

    Gorgeous, comfortable hotel


    We spent two nights at the Country Inn and Suites in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Our party included Mom and Dad, two children age 7 and 11 and Grandma. The suites were pretty and furnished with quality pieces that were in great condition. This was a true two room suite, with the living area and sofa bed in the front room, the bathroom and kitchennette area next, and the two queen bedroom (with door) in the back. There was plenty of room for everybody.

    Our room had a refrigerator, microwave, food storage cabinet, two large tv's, a sofa and two upholestered chairs, double sinks, and a desk/table with chairs.

    The cost was $179.00 per night plus 10.00 for the extra adult.

    There is a large indoor pool and jacuzzi, and an outdoor playground. Lovely continental breakfast including eggs, fruits, yogurt and bakery products. They also had a children's play room with books and small tables and an adult lounge for playing games or just relaxing. The hotel is completely non-smoking, however there is a smoking lounge in the lower level.

    This is one of the nicest places we have stayed in a long time. It is right in the middle of Lancaster, near the outlets and many dutch restaurants. My only complaint would be the advertised distance to Hershey Park. We thought the park was twenty minutes away. However it takes 45-60 minutes one-way to get to the park and it is about 35 miles away. If you are planning on spending most of your trip in Hershey, and especially if you have small children, it may be more convenient to find a hotel closer to the park.

    Also, I think the hotel could skip the smoking lounge altogether. It smelled so bad I don't think even a smoker would want to go in there.

    All in all a great experience.

    Very nice and clean


    Stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Oct.'04. It really clean, but agree with the review that said it's noisy if you face the highway. Asked to be switched to the other side and they were accomadating for a slight increase, but worth the quiet. Had a seperate bedroom with 2 beds and a sleeper sofa. The breakfast was small, but enough to start the day. Had initially booked a room at the Hawthorn Inn and Suites on Lincoln highway. Talk about noisy. You have all of the highways surrounding this place. It was awful and told management the same. Was refunded my money and off we went to Country Inn. Would never stay ay Hawthorne Inn, they shouold pay people to stay their. Would stay again at country Inn & Suites.



    We just stayed here lastnite - we moved from a horrible hotel (Continental Inn on Rt 30) to this hotel. What a huge difference for only $17. more per nite.

    It is super clean, super pretty, super nice staff - interior corridors..spacious rooms, clean rooms, personal thermostat - secure doors, nice bathroom, 2 sinks plus one sink outside of bathroom, nice high counter area to prepare meals , fridge, nice counter area to apply makeup , with seating area, - brand new looking all the way around - this hotel

    was wonderful and i highly recommend it!

    Convenient to all attractions, shopping, etc!

    AAA discounts available and if u have a TGIF's card u'll get points!!

    Good, but not great


    We just returned from a two night stay at the Coutry Inn and Suites (not to be confused with the Country Inn of Lancaster). The location is both good and bad: It is across the street (literally) from Dutch Wonderland. But, Dutch Wonderland sits on the main road (Route 30) in Lancaster. Our front facing one-bedroom suite was VERY noisy at bedtime. On the positive side, the kids loved looking out the window and seeing the castle each day (Disney, it's not -- but still fun for small kids).

    The room was small for a suite -- and poorly laid out as compared to, say, Doubletree Suites. For example, the bathroom (loud flush!) is in the living room area -- which made it tough to go potty while the kids were asleep in the later evening hours.

    Everything was clean and service was friendly (although no one seemed to know good places to eat in the area). The bathroom is smallish for a suite -- but, there were two sinks (unfortunately, both are inside the commode area). The pool was good enough - but, the surface around the pool could have been a bit cleaner.

    In sum, we would indeed recommend this hotel for families traveling with children in the Lancaster area -- but, we cannot give it a rave review.

    A side note: We thought Dutch Wonderland and Hershey's Chocolate Factory made for a perfect short getaway with our young kids (2 and 5). Both Miller's and Shady Maple were very good smorgasboards. And, finally, we liked the buggy ride at Plain & Fancy -- but, it was shorter than they let on. Coupons abound at the PA welcome center just over the border on Route 78. Ask at the desk.

    Great for families!


    We stayed at the Country Inn this week with our two young children. The staff were extremely friendly. We reserved a one bedroom suite, which offered a living room with sofa bed for the kids (with their own tv), a microwave and fridge, bathroom, and separate bedroom with a queen bed and second tv. Plenty of space and VERY clean. The deluxe continental breakfast downstairs offered enough variety for the whole family (but I did wish they had sausage!). The hotel is right across the street from Dutch Wonderland. Busy four-lane highway, but walkable as long as you hold tight to the kids. There is a a restaurant next door as well. Very nice stay- we'll definitely return!

    PS: I can't comment on the pool- we didn't have time to use it!

    Centrally Located - Great for the Kosher Consumer


    We stayed here at the end of June 2004 with 3 kids. We reserved a queen suite which gave us two rooms (with a door in between), one with a pull out couch and one with two queen beds (and 2 tvs). It also had a microwave and fridge which was extremely helpful. It was very spacious, and great for a family at a very reasonable price.

    The hotel staff was courteous and friendly, and truly made you feel as if you were in an old time country inn, even though it is modern. The hotel has a very nice continental breakfast. If you keep Kosher, ask the staff for the breakfast notebook, and they will give you the labels for every breakfast item. There are many things to choose from. There was an indoor pool which was full of young children and families at 9 PM since Wonderland closes at 8:30. The water was cold (heated) but the kids loved it.

    The hotel is convenient to everything. Dutch Wonderland amusement park, the Lancaster Museum and Minature Golf is across the street and walkable. There is a traffic light to cross but you are walking on a sidewalk next to a very busy road, a bit scary but nice not to have to drive. You can literally run back to the hotel in 2 minutes if you forgot something. Wonderland is a perfect place for kids under 11, and is very family friendly. All rides are appropriate and fun for as young as 3 and many were family rides which everyone could enjoy. OUr 4 year old really loved it! Wonderland has a Central PA Kosher stand which provides a wide assortment of Kosher food for lunch and dinner- yummy hotdogs, chicken, wraps and fries for the family. The hotel is a short drive to a lot of shopping outlets, and to the Amish country. The Strasburg Train is only 15 minutes away, and definitely worth the trip.

    We would strongly recommend the Country Inn by Carlson as the place to stay when you visit Lancaster. It is an affordable, family friendly place.

    A Great Place To Stay!


    We stayed at this facility for Father's Day Weekend this year. The hotel was incredibly clean, the staff was exceptionally nice and if you are planning to visit Dutch Wonderland - the location couldn't be better. We highly recommend this facility and plan on staying there again next year!

    Loved this hotel!!!!


    My toddler son and I stayed at this hotel this past weekend, over Mother's Day. It is directly across the street from Dutch Wonderland...what an excellent location!!! There is a crosswalk to the amusement park, so it's an easy walk!

    The hotel itself is very nice! The lobby has a giant fireplace and the porch has rockers! Very quaint! Checkin was smooth and easy and we received our room on the fourth floor. There is also a breakfast room off the lobby for the continental breakfast. They also offer a free library to read books.

    Our room was very very large!!! There were two queen beds, tv and dresser, desk with two chairs, large lounge chair, refridgerator, microwave and large counter. The bathroom is small, but there is an extra sink outside the bathroom. Beds were comfortable, room was very clean and nicely decorated.

    The pool is pretty large for an indoor pool. The spa was also quite large and relaxing. They do have towels down at the pool for your use. Pool was open from 8am to 10:30pm.

    Overall, we had a great experience at this hotel!!!!

    Beautiful & clean


    This hotel is beautiful. It had nice clean rooms. The staff were friendly and the indoor poor was wonderful. It is a great location if your going to Dutch Wonderland and the outlets. I will stay here again!!

    Good Location and Good Quality!


    Great location if you are going to Dutch Wonderland. New hotel, nice large pool.

    ... have a phone box across the road, that amused me. As teenagers they can go and sow their wild oats before they decide if they want to stay Amish and if so get baptised into the church and adopt the lifestyle. So is not unusual to see young ones out having a good time!! They are also not averse to asking for a lift in your car if it suits them. Funny people.

    We left Sussex bright and early on Sunday morning to pick up Chris and Clark and were treated to a sky full of balloons launching on the final day of the annual hot air balloon fiesta - truly a sign of what was to come! As we drove through New Brunswick en route to Ste. Hyacinthe near Montreal we made short stops in Hartland to enjoy the world's longest covered bridge then on to Grand Falls to check out the falls and gorge which we ...

A teenage girl guiding a team of horse with a large trailer full of maze. Had some homemade ice cream very yummy. Well folks you are not going to believe this the the dairy farm has a drive through window where the locals get milk, butter, cream etc quite a weird thing to see on an Amish farm. We explore the country kettle centre in the town ...
