I recently stayed at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Lancaster, PA, with three children (ages 12, 13 and 14). Our simple, one-night stay found us rested and content afterward, and that doesn't always happen when traveling ... especially with teens or young children. If a hotel can keep toddlers or teens happy and moving along, I'm booking a night there again.
The Lancaster Fairfield Inn provided a comfortable night's stay under what appeared to be fully-booked conditions. We heard no noise throughout our stay, even with many families with children of all ages. The most chaos we experienced occurred in the breakfast room the morning of our departure, due to a large number of guests breakfasting at the same time. Even with crowded space, respectfulness and courtesy reined among other guests.
The Fairfield Inn Lancaster sits in a convenient location in a business park neighboring other hotels and a Chili's restaurant. Within a few minutes of easy travel, the Tanger Outlets and a strip of chain restaurants offering everything from fast food to family sit-down meals stand ready to serve you.
We had tickets to a musical at Sight & Sound Theater, indicated by Mapquest as 11 miles from the Fairfield Inn. We encountered no heavy traffic, even at dinner hour, and made our way to the theater in a short time with no delays.
The staff at this Fairfield Inn, especially those at the front desk, appeared genuinely friendly and helpful. The children with me felt at ease to handle the check-out procedure and to ask questions -- and with most self-conscious teens, these interpersonal relations cause withdrawal. Not so with the accommodating personalities of the staff here.
Our room was clean and nicely cooled for our arrival, with enough linen for four people. We enjoyed a very comfortable night's stay, and have suggested this location for the coordinator of our church tour group for next year's overnight visit to Sight & Sound theater.
Lastly, yes, they have a pool. Outdoor and with a moderate heat level, the pool satisfied the swimmers in my group, and we made as much use of the pool in our limited stay as possible. Towels provided, and convenient entryway from the back corner of the lobby made it an easy find, as well as a simple return to our room, rather than having to wend through back hallways to a concealed location. The deep end of the pool measures 5 feet, with a shallow end of 3'4". No diving, which is a good rule for any public pool, for the safety of everyone present. Swim at your own risk, as the hotel does not provide a lifeguard.
We will definitely reserve a room at this location again. Worth the price, and a it makes a terrific location for side trips throughout Lancaster County.
