This is the worst place I have ever been, the room was dirty, party in the parking lot at midnight. Water and drain problems and bugs on the wall never again will I make this mistake. This place is in need of a good cleaning and get rid of the trash you have hanging around there.

Do not even consider this hotel. We requested a non-smoking room which was useless because the whole place reeks of smoke. We stayed 3 nights and could not shower 2 of the days because the shower would not work. We were told that it was poor water pressure because " too many people were taking showers" . This was not...

Lets start off by saying that i only view hotels as a place to sleep for the night and go. I read the reviews and thought it couldn't be that bad. Let me say that I am a smoker. I always request a nonsmoking room because I travel with kids and do not smoke around them. This room/hotel even bothered... More

We went for the weekend and we did not expect much. We were just looking for a room. We got there, no one was at the desk for about 10 minutes. We noticed a stack of state issued Ids laying around.

The hotel isn't a new or luxury hotel. The Economy Inn in Lancaster PA is a basic, good, honest, inexpensive, and friendly hotel to stay in the Lancaster area. When the front desk person said there would be hot coffee up front 24 hours a day he wasn't lying. No matter when, there was coffee when we wanted it. The... More

Ok, so let me start by saying, when we travel we don't expect the Ritz for the prices we are willing to pay. But we do expect a clean room, friendly service, and a neutral smelling motel. I booked on price line, even though I read the reviews, and just thought this would be like all the other times we... More
