... imagine that Christmas time here becomes a pilgrims paradise. The only 'Stars' here in Bethlehem are the large one on the Main Street, and several others on buildings and an illuminated one above the town, although lots of real stars have stayed at this hotel, including Bob Dylan, Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, James Taylor and many others. We had a great brunch at the hotel. It attracts guests from miles around every ...
Shortish drive today but heavy traffic and long delay for (60 minutes) while they paved a roundabout through which highways go in all directions, obviously they have not heard of 'night roadworks'. Lancaster is quite pretty but seems more residential in the downtown area than commercial or retail. The Farmers Market is good with lots of Amish stallholders using modern technology to take your money. The amish stallholders are very adept ...
Yesterday we left our RV at the KOA and drove 90 miles to Atlantic City for one night. We got a comp room because we are Total Rewards Members and we left there with more money than we brought so it was a fun trip. Ahhh, large beds and a regular shower.
If you build it they will come. If you plant it, it will grow. The Amish planted the fields and the crops were going. It was breath taking to smell fresh air each morning. Our stay in Lancaster and the Budget Host Inn & Suites was just excellent. The hotel was clean and close to everything. The Caribbean Indoor Waterpark was attached ...
We went from the Revolutionary War yesterday to the Civil War today. We took a bus tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield. It was a great 2 hours that took us through this 3 days of the war in great detail. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about this particular battle.

Historical Traveler Reviews Willow Valley Inn & Suites Lancaster
We LOVED it!!!!
We stayed in a King room with a jacuzzi tub. There was a pull-out couch that the kids slept on. The bathroom was very spacious. The room had a view of Palm Court and was in the same building as the indoor water playground. We are a family of four and we absolutely loved Willow Valley. From the delicious food to the wonderful duck pond and gorgeous grounds there was so much that will bring us back there again.
Great for kids
I don't have anything bad to say. The indoor pools for the kids were awesome. I've never seen anything like this before. My three year old doesn't like the water but had no problem with this layout. It seemed to have something for all ages as far as the pools were concerned. I didn't eat here so I have no comment. The place was very nice, clean and seemed to be well staffed. When compared to other locations in the area, it's five star. Yes, it is off the beaten path but you're only 20min at the most from anything in the Lancaster area to include Strausburg. I will call this place homebase in future visits to the region.
My wife and I always look forward to our 2 or 3 day get-a-ways with our 2 small children. We were excited about the positive reviews of the Willow Valley Resort in Lancaster, and we were VERY dissapointed in the "resort".
Loved the Willow Valley
My job sent me to the Willow VAlley for a conference. It was absouletly wonderful. My 12 year old son loved the resort and all its offering and we went in April!! He was never bored since they have a wonderful pool and gym area. The food was excellent and the staff was wonderful. This is the best place I have ever been in Lancaster. Even if you don't stay, go there for their buffet. Also, they have a wedding chapel on the grounds!!
An Absolute Must Stay Hotel
Our first stay at this hotel. It was the best in Lancaster especially with children. We loved everything about it. The indoor water playground is a major attraction in Lancaster. The hotel offers everything you can possibly ask for. You and the kids will have a great time. You don't have to leave the hotel for anything. Good luck in getting your children out of the water playground!!!
Third time hopefully a charm!
I have stayed at Willow Valley for the last 2 years and am going back this August. I love it there. The food,staff and grounds are lovely. My kids will definitely love the new water playground.
Lots to offer!
Excellent experience! I have been going for years with our Church Ladies Group as a yearly retreat. Then with my spouse and two children as a family vacation. They do keep their coupon packages coming to help with pricing. My drawback now is that my children are now considered as adults in Willow Valley's pricing plan and the summer pricing per person has gotten too expensive per night when there are other places a lot less expensive. I miss the overall experience of Willow Valley though, because they have so much to offer.
We stayed at Willow Valley for a recent weekend, with several other families, with small children. We had a wonderful stay. Our room was very nice, with a small refrigerator in the room, and laundry (not coin-operated-free) and microwave available in the building. The facilities are beautiful, particularly the atrium pool area. They had not yet opened the indoor water playground, but that will be a big attraction. There was a nice playground area. They also had scheduled children's activities. There is an on-site bake shop, with lots of tempting goodies. All the facilities were obviously renovated, and very clean. Large fitnesss center, nice game rooms. Because it is a Mennonite owned resort, there is no alcohol served on the premises. This is a very nice family resort, and I would stay again.
Loved Willow Valley and American Theater
Willow Valley Resort is a a lovely area of Lancaster. Only minutes away from Strassburg Railroad, Sight and Sound and the American Theatre. This particular weekend we saw One Voice, gospel music concert. It was fantastic. After the concert we had dinner at Willow Valley and it was a delicious smorgasborg. My husband and I highly recommend a trip to Lancaster County. The resort is presently adding a water slide. Can't wait to take my grandchildren.
Willow Valley "Class Act"
Having stayed at Willow Valley on average 2 weekends a year, for over 15 years, I am quite confident in my recommendation. The facilities are more than a cut above average and clean, "polished", staff is professional and friendly, and the food absolutely terrific!My only area of complaint is on the increasing cost of staying there.....However if the adage of "getting what you pay for" is applied , I would have to say that Willow Valley delivers.....
