A resort? Really?

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 14, 2011

The worst! I stayed June 9-12, 2011 and while I enjoyed the people, the hotel took away from the experience. The infrastructure is literally falling apart. Repairs with duct tape, or not fixed at all, but just put up a sign, that's as good as fixing things. The housekeeping staff is noisy, the lack of elevators between the multiple floors, gee, I don't know how this place stays open, when this poorly arranged for the handicapped. The sheets barely cover the beds, the floors are dirty looking.
The air conditioning barely works, and the food service is slow & the buffet is average at best, although the fruit is obviously aged as it is very brown.

Unique Quality: Nice view of their golf course, although they start cutting grass very early.

Probably the worst value hotel I ever stayed at.

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

I had no idea any hotel charging high prices could be this bad.
The "Host," after they ignored two e-mail requests for info on how to get there from Harrisburg Airport.
We phoned a fortnight before leaving and they promised to pick us up in the hotel bus -"just phone the day before you leave."
We did this, giving the flight number, but on arrival at the airport there was nobody there. We stooged around for an hour, then called, to be told they would not be picking us up as it was not their policy.
The room stank. It had been used by a smoker and also smelled musty. The hotel looked seedy: wall tiles were falling off in the bathroom, worn carpet was patched with tape, access was difficult, with stairs everywhere and no elevators. Conference organisers note: access to this place is very difficult with cases, or anything else heavy .We were amazed to find that despite paying $109 a night plus taxes there was not so much as a free donut in the morning.
Coffee in the rooms was the worst ever. The beds seemed to be made of concrete slabs.
There was no fridge - we were told we could have one for $25 extra. Wow! Also, no microwave. These are standard fittings in all modern hotels, but to the Host they are extras or just absent.
My laptop has no wireless, so I could not use the very limited wireless facility in the lobby- available nowhere else in this dive.
Asked for a lead to borrow to connect my laptop in our room, I was advised to buy one from a local store. This was typical of the couldn't care less attitude at Lancaster Host.
The ice machine didn't work in our corridor and phone calls, everything was extra at this place, a sad excuse for an hotel.
On the last day a fellow guest was almost in tears as the Host had gone back on their promise to give her a lift to the Lancaster train station. She had no cash left, no credit card on her and was trying to get home to Canada.
If our experiences, from September 5 to 10 2006 at this ghastly fleapit are to be avoided by you, our strong advice is to book elsewhere.

Unique Quality: Extremely dated, poorly trrained staff, loads of stairs and no elevators.What a package. Oh, there is no frree breakfast or free anything else much, apart from disgusting coffee. The prices are very high for a fifth rate fleapit.

Directions: Why would anyone want directions to this place? The way out is what most guests were looking for.
