Today we went for our main day at Hershey Park after breakfast at the hotel (WAFFLES!!!). We stayed at the park going on various rides til about 4:30 when we went back to the hotel and Zac, Tyler and I sat sensibly in the pool without playing "it"... Back in the room we watched Batman before ...
After yet another glorious lay in we left the motel and drove over to our hotel in Hershey. We straight away new we were in chocolate territory due the pictures of dancing chocolate bars and the smell of artificial chocolate filling the halls. It turned out we could have a park preview for the end of the day so after a quick dinner we entered the over commercialized park and managed to get on 3 good rides! The park also has WiFi so queues will be incredibly ...
Lovely hotel, Country Inn. We met a local couple of people who were surprised that we were staying in Wyomissing, Reading - 'what on earth has brought you to Wyomissing of all places?'
Russell was keen to catch up on the Amish Community near Lancaster PA, which we found very interesting. They have kept their tradition of no electricity, everything hand made and they wear clothing that dates back to ...

Just goes to show you that one is never to old to learn something new everyday. That is one thing I have learned since I have been on this trip. Now I have got to remember what I have learned to be able to pass it on. One thing that I learned is there are differences in the Amish. One is much stricter.The Amish are the ones that are strict and the Mennonites are somewhat more like the rest of the world. For ...

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.
Loved the Tosh
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!
Don't waste your time or money
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.
