Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tashie46 A great place to stay and shop 'till you drop
My family has stayed here several times and we have concluded that if you want to shop the Rockvale Outlets, go to the American Music Theater or the Sight and Sound Millennium theater, then this is place for you. The rooms are spacious, the staff very friendly and the free breakfast has something for everyone.

We had a king suite for a week (grandson born nearby & we live in NM). Everything was perfect, bed & pillows were comfortable, clean room & friendly staff in both front office & cleaning crew.
Only complaint was chartered buses full of people & kids were there Friday & Saturday nights and they (esp. their kids) were loud & the breakfast area was over run with A LOT of people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shihab57 We love it
Let’s start from the outside, the building looks neat and simple. The location is one of a kind between two outlets malls (My wife loves it!?!). The lobby and front desk is roomy but not for big group. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The housekeeping is very active. The buffet lady is super and the breakfast has many varieties that suit most of tastes (we love it). Tea and coffee are available 24 hours. The room is spacious and more than enough for two persons. Fully equipped with LCD, small fridge, microwave, iron and ironing table (NO closet for cloth???? doesn't matter). The atmosphere is generally quite. My room was swimming pool view and has access to it. We enjoyed fresh air when the weather permitted. Taking the room fair in consideration we would give it 5/5. Sure we will be back soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LovesPaul Great service and convenience
The staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient, and the location was very convenient. The food and drink was tasty, varied and plentiful. We had a wonderful time and we offer the following constructive comments:
It would be better if we didn't need to crawl under the desk to connect the laptop.
It would be helpful to be able to turn on the bathroom light without also turning on a rather noisy fan.
The number of rewards points required appears to be higher than for seemingly comparable Holiday Inn Express properties.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindina901 Great place to stay
We recently stayed four nights and found this hotel and staff to be one of the best experiences during our many visits to Lancaster. It's also a plus being right in the middle of a shopping outlet with several familiar restaurants close enough to walk. We will definitely stay there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Train2Rose Noisy Bath Fan, Bed as hard as a rock, no electrical outlets!
After having stayed at other Holiday Inn Express locations, we expected much better than we received! The room appeared to be built as inexpensively as possible. It had insufficient lighting, not enough electrical outlets to charge two phones and power one CPAP machine! The heat did not have a wall thermostat and the bathroom light and fan were on one switch. The fan was extremely noisy. There was a huge difference between 68 degrees on heat and 68 degrees on air conditioning?! Lastly, the bed was as hard as a rock, not comfortable at all. The breakfast room was too small for a sizable crowd, without a waffle or pancake machine. Our overall impression was poor!
We are disappointed with what Holiday Inn Express provided!

As an IHG member check in was fast and room was ready. I usually stay at Holiday Inn Express when I travel and Lancaster is one of the best in the chain. Clean rooms and close to everything you want and need to do. We will be back soon.

I checked in to this HIX and it was as I expected as I have been here before except,
I am a Platinum Elite member was greeted as Gold. Now typically who cares except it means more points. I didn't think to much of it at the time but checked in again today same thing. Only this time I wasn't greeted at all. Are they trying to save points ?
Last visit there was a bunch of hair on the shower wall and it was not mine, bathroom mirror dirty. I am not sure that I will be back at this HIX again. It is better for me for my work, but I think I would rather travel a bit further.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LTCB Great Location
This is great location for shopping at Rockvale Outlets and staying the night for concerts at the American Music Theater(AMT).
The only drawback is that there is no easy walkway/steps to the sidewalks leading to the AMT if it is raining or there is snow on the ground. It is a long walk around on the road thru parking lots to the AMT and restaurants. Still better than any other hotel/motel in the area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maridee NO HELP FROM FRONT DESK
There was a girls field hockey team taking over the hotel the night we stayed. Lots of running up and down the hall, congregating in the hall, doors slamming, etc. When I called the front desk and asked to change rooms I was told I couldn't and that the girls would get quiet at 10 PM. (It was 7:30 when I called) I asked if that meant the girls would be allowed to run wild until then. He didn't answer my question but repeated they had to be in their rooms at 10 PM. They did quiet down about 10:05 after a deep, loud voice yelled down the hall to get in their rooms. The next morning at 5:55 they started up again. I again called to ask for help but was told by the night manager it was 6 AM (really??? I had a clock and already knew the time on a Sunday morning). She told me she had already discounted my stay and that she didn't know why I was placed in the room I was in - which indicated to me there were other rooms available the night before. I checked the bill to see that 12% was taken from the bill. Not sure why 12% when I was TOTALLY dissatisfied with the service and disrespect.

Very good experience with staff and room. Breakfast was great with biscuits & gravy as good as any plus cereal, milk, yogurt, coffee, etc. Would stay there again, but rate is a little high for comparable properties in other areas of the country, particularly for the winter months.

The room was very nice. The hotel was very quiet. The breakfast was great and the front desk workers were very friendly. The only thing they need to do better is to get new bath towels. The fibers are gone and they were like sandpaper!!!! But overall it was a great hotel and we are planning to stay again in the near future!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BDH1 Not a good place anymore
This hotel no longer meets normal HI Express standards. Facilities in run down condition, need updating badly.
Front desk staff not at all attentive to guest needs or basic services. Housekeeping staff especially poor.
Many other choices in this area, I chose to leave early this trip and would not recommend this hotel at all.

We would definitely stay at your hotel again. Everyone as was very friendly and very helpful. My only issue which wasn't the fault of the people at the hotel was when I was looking @ your hotel on-line the quote I got was a less than what I was given when I called and made the actual reservation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler1224 Honest hotel staff
I have stayed here before on numerous occasions. The staff have always been helpful & accommodating. On this last visit my niece accidentally left behind her new i-phone in the room during check out. Once we realized we turned around & headed back to the hotel. We arrived to find that the room had already been cleaned but the housekeeper had sealed her phone in a plastic bag & placed in their lost & found. We were so relieved that the housekeeper was honest & turned the phone in. Thank you Holiday Inn & thank you to your loyal staff !!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by psycho No problems except for breakfast
This was the 3rd try to stay at the motel and go to the AMT for the Christmas show. There were no problems except for breakfast. When we came down to eat, the dinning area was full with people standing in line to eat. There were people sitting at tables not eating and talking so we went down the street to Bob Evan's for breakfast. We stayed here a few years ago with no problems. We plan to come back in April for a show at the AMT and plan to stay at the holiday Express...Ps: The two times we had plan to come and stay, there were weather problems..SNOW.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VirginiaGal Theft of personal belongings
I accidentally left my Kindle Fire tablet, bottlel of Amaretta and curling iron in the room when I checked out. I called as soon as I got home and realized what had happened. I was told that nothing was turned in. As the cleaning staff was in the hall doing the rooms, they should have turned my items in to the front desk but they did not do this.
I have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express hotels and have never had this happen. Anytime that I have forgotten something it has always been turned in and sent back to me.
I am very disappointed in this Holiday Inn Express and will not recommend this particular one to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lmate Clean Room
I stayed on Nov 30th. The Hotel is located within the Rockvale Outlet which is an excellent option if you plan to shop. It is centrally located and close to all the other amenities in Lancaster. The American Music Theatre is across the street. When you drive out to Route 30, there are tons of places to eat, shop and play.
The lobby is a comfortable place with a large TV, electric Fireplace and a Computer/Business area.
I wasn't offered a goody bag as others were but no big deal.
The Breakfast room is an open area off the lobby. Coffee, Tea and Hot Chocolate are available for free. You can even get some cookies at the front desk.
The room I reserved was standard with 2 Queen Beds. I was pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was and clean. There is a microwave, Fridge and a coffee pot (including coffee) in the room.
The bedding was very clean looking and comfortable. There is even a choice of Hard or Soft Pillows on each bed.
One thing I noticed was the bathroom seemed smaller than Ive seen in most hotels. But it had everything you would need. The towels were well stocked. A few complimentary toiletries were a nice touch, and plenty of paper products.
There is a complimentary buffet breakfast in the morning that was quite substantial. Nice selection of breads, muffins and cereals. Also yogurts and fruit. There was some hot food like sausage and eggs. Eggs were premade little omelets but pretty good, and sausage was delicious. And of course Coffee, tea, juice, etc.
My one complaint about the breakfast are the hours - 6 to 9. It would have been more convenient if it ended later.
All in all it was a good experience. There is no room service, or many amenities on the premises.That's one reason I felt the room rate was a little high even with an advanced reservation. But as I mentioned, it was conveniently located, very clean and comfortable.
Each floor does have a beverage and snack machine with good selections. I didn't get a chance to check out the Indoor pool, but it is there. I will consider staying again if I get a good deal on a room rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bandicoot Good location
This hotel is in a great location close to the Rockvale Outlet shops. There was nothing that was really bad about the hotel. Our airconditioner was a bit on the noisy side but apart from that the room was comfortable and clean. It is also in a good location to go and visit the Amish local area. We would be quite happy to stay here again in the future.
