    Showing its age did not have the room we reserved. Got two double beds instead of king.

    The staff was very nice. The hotel was fine. You got what you paid for. Stayed only one night and that was perfect.

  • Family with children

    Very kid friendly.. Ground floor rooms with a back door to the pool. Indoor pool ffor the not so nice days. Helpful friendly staff. Great location in the middle of town. This was the second year in a row we stayed at this hotel and are hoping to return again next year. Great stay and good vacation.

    They upgraded us to a suite so that we could have a king bed rather than 2 doubles. The front desk staff was very pleasant.

    While we did get upgraded to a suite, it was still an old, run-down suite like most of the other rooms in the hotel. For about $15-$20 more per night, I would think you could get a nicer, cleaner, more updated experience at another nearby hotel.

    All the outlet mall that were located near it. Also all the great Amish food.Be sure to go to the Bird-in-Hand restaurant located in the town of Bird-in-Hand.

    Could have used a grab bar to help get out of the tub and we re not old people!

    I like that the hotel is near Dutch wonderland since that was the reason we came to Lancaster it was a plus. The front desk was pleasant and tried to please. The continental breakfast was good and saved us time and money.

    I didn't like that housekeeping only gave us 3 towels to start when we had four people in the room. Also after the room was cleaned the housekeeper came in at another time to place new towels in the room. Also didn't like the way the breakfast was supervised. Had to find someone to bring milk for cereal one morning. And food wasn't stocked up fast enough for the guests.

    The outdoor pool was closed. The indoor pool was dirty. The breakfast is a disaster. The entire hotel is shabby. The staff don't seem to care. Knock it down, rebuid and restaff.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The outdoor pool was huge. Right across street from Dutch Wonderland was convenient. The breakfast was good and convenient and the breakfast room was a good size.

    A bit run down, but clean and decent.

    Swimmingpool and possibility outside seating on balcony or terras.

    Very poor accessebility for wheelchair. The whole hotelequipment was on the very edge of decline. For example: 3 of the 10 light bulbs where not working any more. Not clean, poor breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    There wasn't anything I liked about Ramada Lancaster. I was suppose to be able to check in by 4pm. I showed up to check in at 415pm, the room wasn't ready for another hour. I got into the room, this room was disgusting. The door to the roof was wide open, there wasn't any towels for me to shower. Just disgusting. I will never recommend this hotel let alone stay there.

  • Older travelers

    The heated floor in the bathroom was great. The hotel has potential but needs a lot of upgrades all the doors to the terraces were locked and could not be used, for someone who occasionally smokes looks for terraces and a none smoking room for which I thought I booked, I was never notified that the terraces were off limits, the elevator is an antique and T.V.'s need to be updated. Pool area did not look to pleasing so we never unpacked our bathing suits. Restaurant/bar was barely opened. They advertise room service there wasn't any. Great hotel just needs some tender loving care.

    not a thang we got there andthe first room we were in was no haet we were there for 10 min for i called down stairs to tell them there was no heat and cold air was coming out of the vents. a man came to the room we by then found the thermostat and it was set on cool at 60 so we moved it to 70 and it was 1200 pm at this time so we got to bed and at 4:45 it was only 64 degrees and cold air still blowing so i went down stairs to desk and the lady Bee was very nice to move us to another room. as we moved in thenext room there was no refridgerater for we asked to have one for medical reasons so she said she would have one in the room when someone came in to move one there. We left for our shopping trip and to enjoy the day and we didnt get back to the room till 9:30 pm and when we got to the room there was a refridgerater with mold all in side and bath romm was dirty was very unhappy so called down stairs they said they would bring another up and they did and that had mold all on the door. so we went down stairs to talk to the desk man chris which i know wasnt his fault but some one really needs to clean this place up and he refunded one night that we hadnt even stayed yet but charged us for the freezing night we had on thursday and for friday night that we gould not stay because of the mold and so we had to find somewhere else to go at 10:30 at night will not give anybody anythang good about this place and as far as handicaps this is not a place to be all stairs no ramps for wheel chairs at all!!!!!!

    Location

    The ramada inn is in bad shape. It needs updated. The showers and bed are really bad. The place is very run down. I will not stay again at the ramada inn. We had a room for us and a friend. We both had a bad stay and felt the same way about the place. Will not be back.
