      Having fun till dinner time

      from

      We were very happy with the room although we would have appreciated an elevator. Nice lobby and two nice pools. BUT we made the mistake of eating dinner there. It was just AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. We were the only couple in the dining room (which was quite attractive) and I soon saw why. The meal was really inedible. They deducted one meal from the bill, but we could not eat either meal. What a shame, a pretty place, good location; but we will never go back

      Memorial Day Weekend, not a good time to visit this hotel

      from

      I have spent the last four Memorial Day Holidays at this hotel, keep in mind this is a big weekend for a national dance competition, so therefore dancers are everywhere they tend to be up at late hours running the halls. The lobby is well kept as well as the grounds, it is in a central location for all shopping at the outlets, however the rooms could use some renovations. The poolside rooms are a bit larger than the others, it is worth the extra money for poolside. The food is a bit pricy for the quality. Overall this is an ok hotel for the price, however there are several others in the area better priced. I do assume at a different time of year without the dance competition, it would be a nice place. The pools are great and if weather permits, the outside pool has a nice flair to it. Great place for golf, with its PGA course.

      Great experience

      from

      We spent Fri, Nov. 21 & Sat, Nov. 22 at the Lancaster Host. The day we were leaving to go to Lancaster, i read the reviews. I was really nervous about going there, but i knew everything else was booked. Well i am happy to tell you that i was pleased with everything. The staff was extremely helpful. The lobby was beautiful and they have a very comfortable place to relax by the fireplace. The pool & hot tub were great. The room was very nice. We did not have any meals there, but the menu looked great. It was very conveniently located. The price for the weekend was very reasonable. I would definitely stay there again.

      This place is a DUMP

      from

      I have to give the hotel this the lobby is absolutely beautiful. The rooms on the other hand look nothing like the pictures online at all. You pay for a 4 star place and get a room that looks like a room at the local "no tell motel" we got the room and never even unloaded the car. Checked out immediately. The place was a dump. Iron burns all over the floor and the room smelled like something died in it. Found an Econologde about a mile or so down the road that looked like the Plaza compared to this place. My advice stay away very far away.

      Horrible experience

      from

      I stayed at the hotel in Sept 2003. I found the hotel on the internet and it looked great; however when I arrived there it was a different picture. Walking to my room was like walking three blocks, even though I requested a room closer do to the fact that I had a disabled individual with me. The room was horrible. The carpet was filthy and the bathroom was just as bad (the fixtures fell off when I turned the water on). I was just really disappointed being as though this was supposed to be a weekend get away for my love ones b-day. Great location , but that's about it.

      No elevators

      from

      We stayed at the Lancaster Host in June 2003 and would recommend it. We ate twice in the bar area and enjoyed each meal. The price was good and the buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room which was nice. The location is excellent. The only problems we ran into were directions, if you ask someone at the desk how to get there, not very good. Very nice people, but not good with directions. We did picked up a map in the lobby and that was very helpful. Also, there are no elevators to get to the floor of your room, only stairs. And you must request a bellperson or carry your own bags. Didn't see a bellperson the whole time we were there. Nice golf course at hotel. We took the Amtrak from Lancaster to Philly for the day. I would recommend that also. We drove to Gettysburg and bought the tape and took the self guided tour. Very nice. Also, if you like horse racing. There is a track about 45 minutes away just past Hershey Park. Penn National. We had lunch in the restaurant at Hershey in the candy store area. No very good. There is so much to do in this area if you just look. It's not just shopping and golfing.

      Recommend the Host

      from

      Went with a large group of people to the Host. Everyone had a great time. Food not so good though...

      The rooms could use a facelift....

      from

      We stayed at this hotel in July 2003. Although, the amenities were great i.e. tennis, golf, swimming, basketball etc., the rooms needed renovating. The rooms were not a good value for the dollars spent at this hotel. However, great location--right in the center of Dutch Wonderland, outlet stores and restaurants.

      This was fabulous. Clean rooms and reasonable rates. Near shopping and restaurants. Unbelievably luxurious for the price!

      from

      This is a fabulous hotel. Nice people. Clean rooms. Reasonable rates.

      Two swimming pools. Near restaurants and shopping. What else could you want? Absolutely fantastic. Best hotel that I've stayed at in years.

      Food

      from

      I spent the week-end of 6/13/03 & 6/13/03 at your hotel and the food was Terrible. A hotel of this size should certainly have a better chef than you presently have.

      ... hike, neither of us had worn hiking boots or brought trekking poles. But we found a couple of sticks to act as poles and made it across and headed up to near the base of the waterfall. It was a chilly morning and there was ice around the waterfall, making the waterfall that much more scenic. It’s my understanding that this is a popular waterfall and swimming hole in the warmer ...

      It had not been a very good night. Neither of us could get any sleep. A big trailer had parked right next to us in the Wal-Mart and it spent the whole night idling. At around 2am, Chris got up and actually moved our Westy farther from it but the damage was done and our night was shot. The Wal-Marts are really well lit but usually they close the parking lot lights after the store closes. ...

      Well, we're living here in Allentown....well not really, we are really in Bethlehem, a small, pretty town 4 miles away that Billy Joel did not write a song about. The town nearly died too when the Bethlehem Steel Company went belly up. The company even owned the Bethlehem historic hotel we are staying in. It closed for 2 years until a local consortium revived it. Would you believe, the next town is called Nazareth so ...
