How have I not seen this property before!!! I have been to York MANY times! The owner of this property could not have been friendlier, personable, and more hospitable. The lobby looks like a boutique hotel! Well done! The thing that matters to me MOST is a place being clean...this place has been updated and is immaculate. I have stayed at 2 other places within walking distance of The Lighthouse that were sub par, to be kind. Ok so this place is slightly around the corner from the beach (eyes roll) its still literally a micro walk to Long Sands (burn an extra calorie or 2)....stay here!!!!

I really appreciated the staff upon check in. We had an airport nightmare out of BOS, which push our arrival time at the hotel past 11:30pm and the gentlemen who helped me check in was more than kind to me and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome even at that late hour. I would stay there again for sure.
