Outstanding customer service. Everyone greeted us warmly upon our arrival and went out of their way to accommodate us. Can’t say enough about the staff at the Avid. The hotel is also immaculate and the decor is beautiful and modern. Great location too!

I absolutely loved this hotel. It was the perfect location, right across from Wawa & dunkin and a 2 min drive from the Tanger outlets and Dutch wonderland. Our king room was absolutely beautiful. The staff was very friendly. There was also tons of parking available. I highly recommend this hotel !

I went on a tour bus with 52 other people. It was without a doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Not the fanciest but for the price the best. The hotel is very modern looking. The employees were so friendly from the manager to the housekeeping staff. A special shout out to the Breakfast Manager who really went out of her way to make sure the breakfast bar was well stocked. The hotel was clean, the beds comfortable and the hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The 2 managers came out to our bus to welcome us when we arrived. This was the first time this has ever happened. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Staff was friendly, hotel and rooms were very clean. Their beds were extremely comfortable. Convenient to everything! Tanger outlets, Rockvale outlets, downtown Lancaster was a short drive, kitchen Kettle was a short drive, many restaurants close by. The hotel has a snack store open 24 hours, and free coffee, tea and hot chocolate 24 hours. Includes free breakfast. Hot breakfast sandwich, premade omelette, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, bagels, toast, yogurts and fruits. Great location, great stay.

The team at AVID work very hard to ensure you have the best stay possible! While the breakfast is grab and go it’s the highest quality I’ve gotten at most hotels that offer yucky eggs and whimper bacon. Fresh fruit and yogurt, great individually packed cereal, amazing coffee, hot coco, and teas. Hot breakfast sandwiches too. All for a great price!

We stayed here because of Avid’s proximity to Dutch Wonderland amusement park. The staff was very friendly and very customer oriented. The hotel and room was also very clean. My kids really loved the salt water pool as well. Overall, this was very good hotel. We will definitely come back.

Dear 76charlesk Thank you for the 5 star rating and sharing your comments with fellow travelers. It is so nice to hear when guests are pleasantly surprised with our grab and go breakfast. If guests are expecting a full hot breakfast, that is not what we offer or advertise. Our breakfast is a Continental Breakfast with 2 hot breakfast items. Simple quick for the on the go traveler. We look forward to your return visit.

Bathroom was dirty. Hair everywhere. Long hair. My wife and I both have short hair. The room very small. Too small for two people. TV didn’t work. Call the front desk, she “oh good push in the cable in the back of the tv. The tv didn’t show all the channels. The whole place smell like eggs. I shower leaked water all over the floor. The toilet water was yellow. I guess it was a child friendly place because there was yelling kids everywhere. I was only there for one night so we dealt with it. However, ever again.

Thank you for staying at the Avid Hotel Lancaster. We apologize that we did not meet and exceed your expectations, although the color of the city water and the smell of the neighboring farm is out of the hotels control, the others housekeeping issues are something that we do control and we apologize that you had that experience. We hope to have the opportunity to make it up to you on a future stay with us.

Loved our stay. A better experience than others I’ve had for much more $$. You can tell it was built relatively recently. Yes, the room was on the smaller side (I would call it a charmingly efficient use of space) but it felt fresh, well lit, and streamlined. Yes, others here have complained about the absence of a closet, but there are, count ‘em, nine hooks on the walls. You won’t forget to pack your things in a musty closet. The breakfast was lovely, but what I really appreciated was that nearly everything was individually wrapped. No eggs and sandwiches lying in a communal tray waiting to be contaminated by sneezes and inappropriate touching. See photos and captions for more. Interactions with the super nice front desk staff was an absolute pleasure. Shout out to Trei the manager, who managed to make the check in 411 sound welcoming and unscripted and obviously has the gift of hospitality. And Avery, who sympathetically took in my pleading about my teenage son - who must shower before hitting the road after the last bball tourney game - and magically made a late checkout happen despite a full house. All the love and thank you soooo much!!!
