Myself and my husband stayed at this hotel in October for an event going on in the area. We both were pleasantly surprised at how friendly the staff were as well as how clean this place was. The front desk agent that checked us in was very comical and friendly his name started with a V. During the entire stay...

Very nice staff, check in and out was quick and easy. Rooms were very clean. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family. Ask for a room on the south side. Its a great view overlooking the city.

This was our first time here and it was warm and welcoming. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms clean and spacious although the bathrooms are a bit small. The best part is they treat you like they have known you all their lives instead of a customer. If you want a down home family feel in a city setting definitely...

I am not sure when, but this hotel has certainly gone through a renovation in 2015 because many of these reviews are outdated. The lobby is very inviting and cozy, especially at this time of year. The staff was very nice and helpful. They can add parking to your room for just $10 and you can come and go as...

The hotel has friendly staff, clean rooms, and a great location. We parked our car and walked everywhere. Our room was very clean and had a great view of the city. The only thing missing is a pool. Will definitely stay here again.

I had not stayed at the Hotel Lancaster before, but am very glad that I found it. It's newly renovated, the room service was efficient, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There's a large municipal parking garage right next door that offers discounted parking ($10 per day) to hotel guests. The location is excellent for walking downtown Lancaster, which...

Stayed here recently based on a friends recommendation because we were traveling with our pet. The front desk staff as well as the manager in the office behind them were extremely helpful, friendly and had great senses of humor. They had plenty of suggestions for us of things to do in the area. Upon checking in our dog was even...

Great place to stay for the price. Bed comfy. Close to venues. Parking is only $10.00 per day when you get ticket stamped. Front Desk personnel the greatest. Breakfast OK but very crowded. In fitness room would have like the option to turn on TV sound but room was very clean. May I say again...Front Desk check in the greatest.

The staff are very polite and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was more of a quick start breakfast which was exactly what I needed and was more than enough for me. I will definitely stay here again if I go back to that area.
