Woke up with bedbug bites all over! Asked clerk for another room and they said they had complaints from other guests, so another room wouldn't make a difference (meaning their entire hotel is infested!) There was some kind of bug in the ice bucket, there was mold all around the seal of the refrigerator. The desk clerk was unable to...

So it is no secret that these places are cheap for a reason. I don't know what it is about the SAME motel just a few blocks away being the same, but different at the same time. At this location, it is easier access to the "complimentary pool" at the neighboring Howard Johnson i believe. This place was no better...

We needed a hotel to stay at coming back from Philly and it was already 3 am, so we went with the cheapest one in the roomsaver magazine. Didn't start off too bad, ugly room, dirty walls, but whatever we just needed a place to sleep. Got up this morning, and went to take a shower, an inch of dust...

I might be saying what everyone else is saying in here! We showed up at 11:30 on a friday evening, After a long drive of 2 hours we were hoping we could get in and go to bed. We paid 80 which in hotel prices is reasonable, though I think this room was probably worth 50 most 60. Was non-smoking...

We stayed in Lancaster to go to see Thomas at the Strasburg RR. We stayed for 2 nights. The first room we were in smelled like mold/mildew. When we complained to the front desk, we were given a can of air freshener. Well, the smell was coming from the carpet and walls, not the air! We could barely breathe in...

My father travels a great deal and booked a non-smoking room at the EconoLodge in Lancaster PA for me. I checked into the EconoLodge and was assigned a smoking room. We did not realize the mistake until we got to the room. I went back and ask for another room. The gentleman at the desk was very rude. He told...

I know only 2 persons who would ever stay at this hotel. It stuck very bad. The room, 1st floor, middle, facing hwy needs an overhaul. Maybe had too many cats urinating on the carpet? Should be condemned by the health dept.
