Heritage Hotel – Lancaster
What We Love
- A simple, comfortable stay at a hotel just minutes away from Lancaster’s historic downtown
- The award-winning treehouse-inspired restaurant, with over 30 taps
- The Lancaster location, near Amish attractions and shopping
- The recent remodeling of the property’s guestrooms
If you’d like to visit Amish country, while holding on to the modern
conveniences yourself, Heritage Hotel – Lancaster can help. This
Pennsylvania escape keeps it modern, offering a treehouse-inspired
restaurant with three bars and fare like buffalo-chicken dip, plus a
fitness room that stocks the current exercise equipment. Connect to the
Wi-Fi, available in common spaces and rooms, or lay back and
channel-surf on your very own flat-screen TV.
As the name
suggests, the hotel is also in Lancaster, which is known for its Amish
population and culture; it only takes a few minutes to step from the
hotel’s 21st century to the rural 19th, thanks to the proximity to PA
Route 30. There are more regional pleasures in town, like antiques shops
and hot-air-balloon tours, but it’s also a breeze to set out exploring
Amish traditions. Sign up for a buggy ride, visit a farm, or shop for
handicrafts at Kitchen Kettle Village – when you stay at Heritage,
exploring Dutch Country’s as easy as shoofly pie.

newly remodeled guestrooms at Heritage Hotel are unfussy and

How to Get There
We generally have occasion to book a room for 3-nights every June at the Heritage Hotel. I have probably stayed there, for leisure, 3 or 4 times. Rooms are clean and the new beds are very comfortable. There's a coffee maker, very good water pressure, microwave, mini fridge, and hairdryer in each room. The only thing I miss is the room not having a mini safe. The staff are more than accommodating. The front desk are amazing. Shout out to Lamar and Brittany! They helped me out with dividing a room charge and went the extra mile. Loxley's was a nice place to eat (really good French Onion Soup). The hotel itself is centrally located to many business (supermarket, fast food options, Wine & Spirits store, churches, etc.). I look forward to my next visit.
Room was clean and bed comfortable. Had 2 queen beds. Shower was hot and water pressure very good. Had refrigerator and microwave. The one negative is getting a wake up call. We have stayed there twice in the last 7 months and on both occasions did not have the wake up call as asked for. As a matter of fact there was no wake up call
When I go to a hotel, my evaluation, expectation and impression begins at the front door. If you are like me, don't do it here., The front of the building pales in comparison to what you will find when you get to the front desk. Everything is clean and welcoming. It doesn't stop there either. The rooms are well appointed, updated and comfortable. There is a Robin Hood theme here and it is carried over to the restaurant too. I liked it!
Change of plans caused us to arrive in the area a day early, so needing a hotel we found this one. Upon first arrival I thought we found our new favorite hotel that we would always book when visiting the area, which we do pretty often, The hotel was very nice and our room was clean. The Loxley's Bar was very nice however what changed our minds that we will not book here again is that it is so noisy, we got very little rest or sleep, as soon as you would fall asleep doors were being slammed, people yelling and it sounded like a party was going on right outside our door ALL night.
Ugh. Rooms are dingy. Hallways are dimly lit. Desk clerk was unhelpful and rude. Noisy. About the only thing good I can find to say about this hotel is that if you come to see the dinner theater, your room will be very conveniently located right next door.
