Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Lancaster (Amish Country)
Ranked #6 of 39 Hotels in Lancaster
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 May 2011

I recently stayed in the Country Inn and Suites during the month of May all because of the special they had going on (book any room before Memorial Day and get a $30 Amazon giftcard and TGIF's valuable coupon)

The hotel is very homey but also very well taken care of. The lobby is cute with the Amish dolls, paintings, and I especially loved the Amish inspired game room with the quilts, antiques, and fake fireplace.

Breakfast in the morning was great! They had mini donuts, bagels, breads, 3 waffle makers, kellog's cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, canned fruit, and beverages. Some specials were biscuits, sausages, fried eggs, and gravy. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that there were coffee/tea 24/7 and it was always being re-filled :)

I got a suite which had a pullout couch and two twin beds. The twin beds were kind of small for 2 people....but it could work. I enjoyed the two sinks and the door between the living space and the twin beds. The refrigerator was handy since we bought baked goods, and milk :)

Pros:
Location
Value
Ammeneties

Cons:
A/C was VERY loud but definetely worked!
The swimming pool room was SO hot, if you didn't swim it felt like a sauna.

We've stayed here previously so I knew that the regular rooms faced Route 30. But the last time, the white noise from the AC/Heat blocked out the road noise. We weren't so lucky this time since the AC/Heat kept turning on and off, as did the refrigerator (so it was a somewhat noisy, sleepless night). But...if you're staying in a suite, you won't have this issue (since they're not on Route 30), and the rooms are nicely decorated. Staff was nice as well and the breakfast looked popular (although we headed to Shady Maple).

This was an unexpected 5 days stay. The staff was very helpful, accommodating and very understanding. The one bedroom suite with a door between the bedroom and sitting room was great. We were able to resolve issues that needed to be addressed while the other person was sleeping. We did not take advantage of the indoor pool, but we saw children in the pool and they looked like they were enjoying it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing highway can be noisy

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in the Amish country. We had a one bedroom suite. The room was very clean, the bed was comfy. They serve free breakfast every morning which tends to get very crowded. Fortunatly there are microwaves/ mini frig in all the rooms so you can bring your food back to your room if there are no seats left downstairs.. They have cereal, fruit ,yogurt, pastry, make your own waffel and some type of egg ( hard boiled when I was there).
They have a very nice indoor pool and large hot tub in the basement level of the hotel. you can take the elevator right down to the pool ( no need to walk across the loby in your bathingsuit!).
My words of advice to you are this: Try to check in early, we got in at 5pm and all the rooms that face the back of the hotel ( a nice golf course) were gone. Our room faced Lincoln Highway and was noisy all night long. I am generally not bothered by noise but this was really loud even with the AC on. Many trucks use this route and frequently use their airbrakes even at 3am! I think the hotel should switch the layout of the rooms that face the highway. The living area shoudl be at the front facing the window and the bedroom should be moved to the interior area closest to the hallway. At least this would give you a quite nights sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel.

We stayed here 2 nights while visitng colleges in the area. Very nice heated pool and large jacuzzi. Good complimentary breakfast. Staff very helpful with directions, menus, etc Close to outlet shopping. Rooms were very clean with a nice shower (good water pressure). Good closet space. Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite-which was separate with a door. Very good rates (Saturday $90, Sunday $80) for advance purchase (non-ruendable) for a 1 bedroom suite.

Room Tip: Get advance purchase rate on their website
