Sept.12 : Well here we go again, more rain ahead of us. Don't know if it meant anything or not, but as we were leaving Newark this morning, we saw this old, old really old man building a very very large wooden boat, while animals of all kind were standing around as if waiting to board....hmmm wonder if his name was Noah....YIKES!!!
Any-who, we …
... with quite a few food delicacy tours. First stop is Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery. When we pulled into the parking lot, all of us couldn't quite believe how small the shop is, at least from outside. The building was built in 1861, with the charm from old time. The tour was very informative. We learned how to make pretzel/tie the pretzel knot. Every step of the pretzel making has a special meaning.

Our journey back home was as entertaining and relaxing as our one coming here. We passed the time by playing verbal games, and decking cards in the back seats of the van. Charades, memory, and 20 questions were some of the fun games we ...
Left Downingtown at 7:30 in the morning . Kids were ready by 6 am and were super excited on seeing the 12 seater. Lots of space for 8 of us and plenty of room for the luggage.

Historical Traveler Reviews Lancaster Red Roof Inn
Very loud traffic
The noise from traffic is very loud. We left after one night and changed hotels. Carpet needed cleaning very badly. Found hair in bathroom.
Was not clean
When my sister and I stayed at this hotel, we were very disappointed. The room we had was not clean. Overall, the room was dungy, and it was a disheartening experience. The was hair on the fold-out sofa bed (it looked a lot like dog hair) and the shampoo/lotions in the bathroom were partially used. While the staff was cordial and agreed with our complaints -- I showed the manager the condition of our room, we will never stay at this establishment again.
I stayed here for just a quick overnight stay. It was OK. They are going for kind of a Country Inn feel here. My only real complaint is that the cleanliness wasn't up to par. My room had kind of a "grimy" feel to it...and the bathroom plenty of stray hairs. The hallways, stairways, and elevators were filty - as if they had never been cleaned.
Hey, you get what you pay for......
Yes, I agree with your viewpoints on MacIntosh Inn, Lancaster, PA
I stayed there for the last Thomas the Tank program at the Strasburg Railroad in September 2004. I am staying there again for the first Thomas the Tank program in June 2005. I think the AAA rating is three stars. The price is a few dollars more than the Motel 6 in Gordonsville, PA.
So, DUH ... I am staying at a three star hotel for the cost of a Motel 6? It's a no brainer. Very nice setting, below the roar of traffic of Route 30, nice rooms and nice staff.
MacIntosh Inn, here I come !
it was a great room for the price. The front desk were very nice. I'd stay here again when returning to the area.
Cute inn by Dutch Wonderland
We stayed overnite at the MacIntosh Inn in Lancaster, PA on April 15, 2005. The rooms were very nice and clean. The staff was VERY helpful in assisting us with directions to a nearby gym and also with bringing additional pillows, towels, washcloths, etc to our room.
I would stay there again if I was again in the Lancaster area.
This is by far the best hotel in Lancaster. It is like a 5 star hotel for a 3 star price! They accept all discounts, but I would pay any price to stay here. First, the staff is the best in town. Second, the room. It is the nicest room, luxury in fact. It even has a refrigerator! I would never stay anywhere else. I always went in the winter, so I don't know how the pool is, but it seems nice. Easy on-off access from anywhere in the Lancaster area. You park right near your room or near the stairs to go upstairs. I feel very safe there. The housekeepers are very nice, and give you anything you need to make your stay the best. This hotel is just a few seconds from everything. For example, Dutch Wonderland, ALL OUTLETS, WAL*MART (if you need something), and every restaurant imaginable. The continental breakfast is great. They have a great selection of bagels, muffins, danish, juices, coffees/teas, and a very well sized room to be comforable in. Again, you need to stay at this hotel. You will NEVER be unpleased.
Friendly Staff, Nice Rooms.
This hotel wasn't deluxe or anything, but pretty nice for the money. The staff was incredibly friendly and did their best to help us with anything we needed. The rooms were clean and nice.
Stayed here overnight for a little 'getaway' about a month or so ago and I thought it was very nice and VERY CLEAN! Only thing I can complain about is the shower! And that's onlt because of the water pressure and the odd shower heads! Big deal! We survived! The room was very nice and 'cute'. I WILL be back! thanks!
I stayed at this hotel directly next door to Dutch Wonderland during a day trip with my family. Fortunately we did not stay overnight but rented a room for the day just to have somewhere to relax throughout the day while at Dutch Wonderland. The room was okay but definitely needed some remodeling. The bathroom could have been cleaned a little better than it was and the pool was behind the hotel. You had to walk down a fairly long sidewalk just to get to the pool. Once inside the pool area, I was completely disappointed and disgusted. The pool was fairly clean but looked like it may not have been chlorinated in months as well as the bathrooms inside the pool area. The area around the pool that you have to walk on was dirty and needed a good scrub. My only advice, if you plan to stay at this hotel and use the pool, is bring a pair of flip-flops to walk around in maybe even water shoes to wear into the pool.
