For starters, 'Granny's Motel and Restaurant' is no longer a restaurant, and just goes as 'Granny's Motel.' Please, do not come here looking for glamour or luxury. However, if the cheapest price is what you are looking for, and hot water and a bed are enough for you, this is not a horrific way to spend $45 dollars. Though we...

We had stayed at Granny;s Motel some years ago---- clearly under different ownership--- and had fond memories of our stay, including a lovely restaurant . We had wonderful meals and a comfortable night. Not so this trip! Some of the furniture probably was fro the previous, charming era, but overall the stay was worse than disappointing. When we entered our...

Our family was on our way back from Hersheypark. We needed gas and decided to get off in Frackville. We saw from a distance a statue of "granny" with her grandchild. We needed to go back and take a picture next to it. Her grandchild was holding a doll with no head. That was creepy in itself. But once we...

We booked rooms for family from out of town to stay here while they visited us for a week. This place turned out to be a dump. It doesn't appear to have been cleaned in years & did I mention BED BUGS! Members of our family got bitten by these bugs. The owners wouldn't do anything for them & don't...

Worst motel I've ever been in. Had to get bed bug spray. Dirty. Only good thing was the hot water and shower. Seen bugs, my friend got bit several times. Could not get any refund back.could be renovated, but I guess the owners just don't care

Our room was clean, and we had goose down pillows! The room could be dated to the late 90's but it was excellent for the price! Furniture was worn, surely felt "lived in" but was comfortable. I slept wonderfully. I love tiny details and antiques. Nice paintings, little lace over the curtains. Private bathroom n shower was clean, new countertop....

Skip this hotel all together. At one time it was very nice, as was the restaurant and popular in the area since then whoever took it over ran it to the ground, there was a meth lab in there I read in the papers not too long ago.. How do u not know this as an owner??? No housekeeping 👍

This used to be a good place to stay when "granny" owned it but the last time I stayed here it was terrible. The new owners have closed the restaurant and run the motel into the ground. I definitely will not stay here again.

This had to be the worst motel we ever stayed in....very dingy, shabby and dirty. The outside needed paint and sprucing - was very rundown...the inside was horrible, dark and depressing. The bathroom vanity was coming apart, there was a large patch on the bathroom ceiling, the carpet was dirty, the bathroom hadn't been cleaned and the towels were paper...
