Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nanj99 Very nice stay here
I found the staff accommodating, the breakfast varied and tasty and the room clean and comfortable. It is located in a very convenient area to downtown as well as all surrounding sights.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LorTed A Putrid And Persistent Odor
If it wasn't for the "liquid manure" odor coming from a nearby farm that succombed the room we stayed in, it would have been fine. The persistent odor was sensed throughout the room, and there wasn't another one available. As patient as we were, it was quietly upsetting. The rooms need an electronic deodorizer to combat the manure smells from outside, being Amish farm country. We feel the mangement should have been more considerate- at least by granting us a discount or more bonus points as a consolation. We may not stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orenda Not as accessible as required
We reserved an wheelchair accessible room but the room was quite small and the bathroom inaccessible. The shower was OUT.
There was no curb cut to allow access at the closest point to our room as directed by the check in attendant.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DLG1 No Answer at the Front Desk
Called several times after my departure to check on an item I left in the room. I got no answer most of the time I called and when I did get through I would be put on hold for at least 5 minutes and someone always told me that they would check with Housekeeping ang call be back one way or another. They never did...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Overall service lacking !
Contrary to numerous stays at HIE's, this particular experience was certainly not one of the good ones.
While we were a little early for check-in, I was told my room was near ready. I was told to leave my cell number and they would call. Never happened.
With second check at desk, I was told the room wasn't ready, but they'd check on getting me a different room.
After 45 minutes, I was given a room (Now going on 4PM).
I was not recognized as a Priority Club Member, nor was I asked. I did not receive any benefits after I said I was Priority Club.
The outside pool was not clean.

WE ARE FROM FLORIDA AND WHENEVER WE VISIT LANCASTER, THIS HOLIDAY INN IS OUR CHOICE. WE HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED.
ANGIE FROM FRONT DESK WAS SO ATTENTIVE AND VERY EASY TO SPEAK WITH.
THE ATTENDANT AT THE BREAKFAST BUFFET DID AN EXCELLENT JOB OF KEEPING FOOD REPLENISHED. SHE EVEN ALERTED US THAT SHE WOULD BE CLOSING SOON AND ANYONE WAS WELCOMED TO GET MORE FOOD BEFORE SHUT DOWN. VERY CONSIDERATE.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KenJ4950 Comfortable bed and clean room.
Disappointed on arrival. We were set up for a king bed and was initially given 2 queens. My reservation stated 1 King Bed. No "Goodie Bag" at check in. We were given 2 bottle of water. We stayed here a month ago and got a "goodie bag", although they said one would be in each room and they were not. We had to go back to the desk to get them.
This is not a good recognition for Priority Club Members.
We tried our key for the outside door on the second day, and it had been deactivated (both keys), so we had to walk to the front desk to get it re-keyed.
We have stayed here several times over several years with our friends and had good service. If this had been my first time, I'm not so sure the review would be as good as the one I'm giving now.
It's very convenient to the outlets and other attractions. They give you an appetizer at the Texas Roadhouse which is a nice perk. I really enjoyed the bacon on the first day for breakfast. I didn't care as much for the ham on the 2nd morning of our stay. Overall, it is a good breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MountainChick Nothing special - Clean rooms, service was good,
Nothing special to report about this hotel. A little over priced compared to other hotels that offer the same amenities. It was clean, service was ok, but toilets were slow to flush in the am. Could have stayed at other hotels, just as nice, but cheaper (other travelers in my group insisted on staying at Holiday Inn).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bugged777 No. no...no
I had booked this hotel for two nights and was to get bonus points on my stay. I was paying a premium price...I expected a decent stay. When I got to the hotel there was no parking except in the back which was not well lit. I entered the hotel and the smell was the first thing I noticed. It smelled mildewy and not fresh, although it appeared to have been recently updated. When I got to my room, it smelled of a heavy dose of air freshener covering up pet and smoke. I saw a huge centipede on the wall in the hall coming in. I stayed in my room, didn't complain, but I couldn't help thinking of the centipede. When I walked to the lobby for breakfast in the morning, there was a maintenance guy taking care of another huge centipede. I overheard him say to the housekeeper that "these bugs are all over" and that he "had seen them in every room" and that they "couldn't control them". I told this to the front desk and checked out and went to a hotel down the street. I was not given any credit for my first night's stay. Paid the full premium price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by teacher24 Friendly staff
Our only disappoinmtent was that the breakfast was served until 9am each day. This was very early and didn't allow us to sleep in a little during our weekend away. While the food offered at the breakfast was great, we wished it was offered until at least 10am.....9am seems very early to end breakfast especially on the weekend.

This Holiday Inn Express is the perfect location when visiting the Lancaster Outlets or the local entertainment venues. When we had a question the front desk clerk immediately resolved my question. The free breakfast is a great convenience and is tasty also. Try it--you'll like it!

This hotel is one of the nicest mid priced hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff was very friendly and the room and common areas were beautiful and clean even though they apologized for dust due to remodeling (which we never saw by the way). The hotel is conveniently located close to the outlet malls and several nice restaurants. It was also convenient to many of the area's other attractions. We will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends in the future.

This was our second stay at this hotel and we would definitely come back when we next visit Lancaster. It's centrally located to countless shopping and dining choices and within a short drive you can be in the heart of all the charming rural areas. Very good value compared to other nearby hotels, very clean and comfortable.

When arrived to our room, their is a sign indicating it was a non-smoking room but as soon as we walked in it smelled of cigarette smoke. When I called the front desk the front desk person told me they were sold out and they had special fitration system they could use to ventilate the room. We had gone out for dinner but it was stillt he same. Everything else was perfect.

Bed was very comfortable. Everything was perfectly clean. We were met with a goodies bag since we are Priority Club members and the staff was pleasant and helpful - even printed a Google map for us for the next place we wanted to go. Hotel was perfectly located for the things we were there to see.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by duncan84 Recognition of Platinum Priority Club Member
When we arrived the only employee present was franrtically trying to get one of two computers "up and running" so he could proceed with check-ins. There were three couples ahead of us already waiting. When we finally got our turn he seemed very distracted and made no mention of our platinum status nor offered us a complimentary upgrade. There was an entire shelf with sacks already prepared with bottled water and snacks (for platinums perhaps?) but no mention to us. We stayed three nights and never were recognized. We were on a 6 night business/pleasure trip and were not recognized one time. This was a first for us--normally (in the Midwest, at least) we are offered an upgrade. Maybe the East coast is different, huh?

Been staying at this place since the 80's when it was brand spanking new...not Holiday Inn back then Stayed there about five times in late 80's and early 90's. Then about six years ago started going back to Lancaster yearly and been staying here now Holiday Inn Express. Great place ! Very convenient to outlet shopping, Amish sights. etc. Puts you right in the middle of everything.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by josephMM uncomfortable bed, deteriorating interior, but clean
Greatly overpriced, bed was very uncomfortable, the interior was substandard with too much poor quality caulking around loose joints in bathroom, pictures removed from walls, but the staff was friendly and the room was clean.
I feel that this was the worse Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed in, and it was the most overpriced. It reminded me of one of those poor quality places. If this is what overaged Holiday Inn Express is going to look like in the future, we will probably be staying elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vtwmm Excellent Customer Service
Excellent customer service. When we checked in, the clerk behind the desk was busy checking in a guest, with a phone that was ringing off the hook. The clerk was very professional with everyone, and did not get stressed out. We had booked an extra day, arriving early, and he took care of our room so that we would not have to switch rooms. Our added bonus was when we asked about how long it would take to get to Gettysburg and Hershey, he took the time to provide us with maps and distances to each place and back to the hotel. A positive experience overall, and we will be back.
