After a long day of driving, we decided to stay in Washington, PA and chose the DAYS INN as it was posted in the Hotel Travel Coupon Book. It was a good location and a good price -- $40.00 plus tax.
The room was clean and spacious, with a mini-fridge and micowave. Also high speed wireless internet is available for a fee.
The Days Inn has 104 guest rooms, outdoor swimming pool & guest laundry, complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, free local calls and a variety of restaurants nearby.
We stayed at the Columbian for one night in August to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. At the time, a Sunday night, we were the only guests there, it was nice to have this beautiful old inn all to ourselves. We stayed in the Bishop room, decorated in a romantic style with a four poster bed and a fireplace. Karen, our hostess was very helpful and sweet, not to mention a fantastic cook. Our breakfast, served on the outside patio, was just delightful.
This lovely brick faced B&B, has wonderful wrap around porches, a back patio with coy pond and waterfall and lovely indor common spaces. The whole place seems to be designed for relaxing and enjoying time with your special someone.
This hotel was not that fancy but overall it was clean. I see since we have been there they have been remodeling so maybe now it could be very nice.
The price was good and we found the playground on site to be an added bonus for the kids for something different to do.
The community is very polite - there was a nice little shopping mall nearby with a dollar store and grocery store.
Playground on site.
Philadelphia's Hotel Windsor is located right in the middle of things. About 10 blocks walk from either the Museum District, or the Historical area, depending on which direction you go. The room was spacious with 2 double beds, a kichen and 2 walk in closets. Seemed like a good place to stay if you neede to be in Philadelphia on business for awhile, or just simply if you have a LOT of luggage.
It did the job for us, though we only utilized the kitchen for the sake of making tea and coffee in the morning.
The only complaint was that Lou found the bed to be on a slant, with his feet higher than his head. Not the best nights sleep we ever had.
The best thing about this hotel was the rooftop pool. Unfortunately it was not open yet, have to wait for summer for that. We were still able to go to the roof and check out the city views at night. Just beautiful!
The couple of times we went up to do some hiking a beautiful Rickett's Glen State Park, we stayed at this cute little place just down the road on RT118. The owners are very kind and helpful and will make your stay a pleasant one!
The hotel has approximately 8 rooms. When we went in May we were the only ones staying here.
There is only one room that has it's own bathroom with shower, this one is a little more expensive (about $10 more) and is spacious with a queen sized bed. Otherwise the other rooms either have a half bath or have a shared bathroom in the hallway. (with the half bath you have to use the hallway bathroom to shower) All are very reasonably priced about $40-$50 a night.
They do not serve breakfast, however. You will have to travel a little ways to get to a diner. we are quite familiar with the area and went to a place in Dushore that we go to when we are camping nearby.
The Rickett's Glen Hotel is primarily known for it's restaurant, the food is excellent! There is also a bar here, but not to worry, even though it's open until 2, you don't hear a thing in your room.
I loved standing on the back porch at night to hear the perfect sound of nothing but frogs on the nearby lake, and waking up early to watch the sunrise over Beaver Pond.
I began staying with at Westwynd Inn when I traveled to Hershey for business. In all, I spent about a month at the here. During that time, I became close friends of the owners, Frank and Carolyn Troxell. They have converted their home, with the help of a beautiful addition, into a 7-bedroom bed and breakfast. Carolyn is an amazing cook; so make sure to make time for breakfast each morning. The room are all unique, with their own bathroom and gas fireplace. There are three common rooms in the inn. The grounds are amazing. They have a barn where they board horses. Guest are welcome to wander about on the grounds. In the distance, you can see the famous Hershey Hotel. On a beautiful summer day, you will have a hard time remembering a place so peaceful and filled with beauty.
The grounds, the comfort and the friendly atmosphere of the inn kept me coming back. This is an especially wonderful place for a female traveling alone on business. Also, Carolyn has treats out all day long, so after a long day at Hershey Park, you can come "home" to fresh cooked goodies!
We stayed in the Log Cabin Motel while were went out to western PA to visit Fallingwater. I had seen it on the internet and was dying to stay there. the decor is Log cabin like (who would have guessed) with some very interesting furniture made from natural twigs, branches and logs. Some of the rooms have hot tubs, ours did :) It was a very cozy place to stay. the only downside is there is no breakfast available. We had to drive a little ways to find a diner.
The decor is it's biggest selling point.
It is also located right next to Living Treasures animal Park. In fact the LT gift shop is where the "front desk" is located.
You can get a discount if you have an AAA card.
A beautiful log-cabin style b&b in Lebanon, PA. Friendly hosts, beautiful location, huge bedroom, and great breakfasts.
Room also had a fireplace and Jacuzzi tub
Located in Akron PA, isnt far from the Lancaster Oulets.....across the street is the Akron Resturant. Great rates goes for about 52$ a night for a 2 bed room.
Television,In reach of alot of places....Lancaster Outlets.....Akron resturant
The Red Caboose Motel in Strasburg is made up of real refurbished railroad caboose cars. Great prices and great fun. The folks that run the place are friendly and very helpful.
Room with single double bed (half caboose) ran $62/night (includes taxes)
The Strasburg Railroad trains run right by the motel and the National Toy Train Museum is right behind it. Amish buggy rides start right on the property. The restaurant is made up of two real railroad dining cars. Within walking distance of the Strasburg Railroad, home of a real working steam engine railroad with rides and restaurants and, of course, toy stores.
This part of Fayette County has a strange blend of very ritzy resorts and almost run-down motels. If you're not too fussy you'll find what you need. One of the nicer places is The Summit Inn Resort, in Farmington, although it's a little more costly than others.
The lodge has a heated indoor pool, sauna and I believe there was a workout room. They offer full service meals, or four and seven course dinners by reservation..we got the seven course meals.. wow! You wake up still full and then you have your breakfast reservations to look foward too! =) Hunger is not a problem here! There are rooms, cottages, and suites. We had a suite, good choice! The suites' have king-sized beds, fireside whirlpool tubs and large private bath (with his and her sinks!) The suites dont have t.v.s' but if your not hiking because of the weather or whatever, you can go to the great room and read one of the many books they have available to you. Or swim, or workout, or play a game or go antiquing.
We have stayed at several properties;
Pocono Gardens Lodge 1994-1998
(this place use to be our favorite spot for winter getaways, but since then we have been getting negative feedback on it lately).
Fernwood Resort - not one of our favorites, the villas were nice, but it was too far from other resort activities
Shawnee resort - we loved our villa, it was a nice quiet setting, however, this resort is so spread out, you definitely need a car to enjoy it..
Splitrock resort and Mount Laurel resort - We visited these resorts on a really bad day, the weather was awful, but from what we could see, Splitrock may be worth a 2nd visit on a better day, but we definitely did not like Mount Laurel Resort...
For Pennsylvania, I think I liked the one in Allentown better. The rooms were bigger and you could get more on the telly. In Carlisle, the room was plenty comfortable, but so small you had to leave it to change your mind.
Nice comfortable rooms for a low price.
THE AIMISH WOWNT LET YOU STAY WITH THEM THAY ARE A CLOSED COMUNITY! BUT THERE ARE MANY HOTELS EXC. IN THE AREA.
I STAYED IN A RENTED APPARTMENT SO IT WAS 800$ PER MONTH, BUT IT WAS SHAIRD BETWEEN 4 PEOPLE SO IT WAS O.K.!
