Nice family style motel in a beautiful setting

Posted Sep 11, 2017
Pros: Location, scenery and quiet. Nice gazebo and deck that overlooked the farm fields. We watched Hot Air Balloons in the distance.
Cons: Some of the exterior could be spruced up.
Location: Good Food, Shopping, Covered Bridges, Strasburg Railroad and Farm Markets.
Very relaxing in a beautiful farmland setting. Amish restaurant across the parking lot. I see why folks come here to vacation. The Amish were friendly to us and waved from their buggies.

Not worth the price

Posted Sep 5, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness of room and bathroom
Cons: Customer service and having at least a continental breakfast. They do provide coffee or tea in room.
Location: We came in for the Sight and Sound theatre and there are other Amish stores in the area.
The room was very clean but for the price we expected at least a continental breakfast and somewhere in a review saw that but not on their website. We turned on the heater to get the chill out of the air and it smelled so bad thought we were going to choke. We were going to say something to the front desk upon check out but their was a sign up be back in 5 minutes-that was about 8:30 am. Saw the lady but she ducked out of sight. Needless to say we won't be going back here.

Rich - please accept our sincere apologies that you did not have an overall enjoyable stay. I apologize for the smell of the heater, they haven't been used for months and it does seem the first time they are turned on they do that. We didn't anticipate the coolness or we may have turned it on ahead of time. We do typically do this in the cooler months, but it is hard to figure when it is warm during the day and cool at night. Sorry to hear your experience with the morning staff wasn't as it should be. I will address this.

Economical but disappointing

Posted Aug 29, 2017
The motel was very clean, but our room smelled funny and was dark and depressing. The paint was chipped and needed repainting. The bathroom was remodeled and nice. The motel would be fine for an economical family trip but not a getaway weekend.

Old time motel in the country.

Posted Aug 28, 2017
Updated but rooms are dark and small. Clean and comfortable bed, Cows and horses across the road. Field and playground out the back with beautiful views of the countryside. Have to check in by 6:00.

Great location

Posted Aug 25, 2017
Our stay was so much more enjoyable due to the wonderful location of this hotel. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The hotel was centrally located but off the major traffic roads. The farmlands in the back were beautiful and the grounds had a gazebo with a picnic table and grill. There is a nice little playground next to the gazebo. A bench in the front is the best place to sit and watch the Amish buggies drive by. The restaraunt is a short parking lot walk away with wonderful friendly people and good food. We will definitely stay here again if we come back.

Country views

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Cons: rugs and air condition unit
Everything was fine. Loved the views of the farmlands in the evening and early morning. No security lights in the distance so plenty of star gazing. The rugs in the rooms could use an update as well as one of the air condition units. It was not doing a good job of cooling or removing the humidity in the room. But it had been a very hot day.
