“Great find...good value!”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

The service was great, rooms large and clean, spacious lobby area. Good fitness center, with free pass to Gold's gym. Great bar area, pool, and whirlpool. Overall a great find...no free breakfast though. However there is a good breakfast buffet for $9.95. Parking and internet both free!

Spent the Labor Day Weekend in Lancaster with my family. We booked the trip last minute and were pleased with the accomodations and hotel. The location allows for easy access to Rte 30 and is just far enough of way from the crowds that you don't feel like you are in the center of traffic.

My parents enjoyed the buffet breakfast but felt the food was on the cool side. They were down early on Sunday morning and were able to enjoy the paper outside in the gazebo. We stayed two nights and found the rooms spacious and clean. My only complaint is the pillows were extremely thin and we needed to request additional pillows for our second night stay. Otherwise, a nice location with some nice amenities: small pool area, lobby restaurant and bar, and complimentary computers.

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry our pillows were not what you expected. We have replaced the pillows, for a better guest experience.

This was our second stay at the Courtyard. Our son is a freshman at F&M and we dropped him off right before Hurricane Irene. What a stressful weekend it would’ve been if not for the staff at the Courtyard being so pleasant and hospitable we felt right at home and relaxed.

After a long day being up since 5am, driving for hours and moving our son into school the last thing we needed was a long check-in. Chris the GM checked us in and made it so smooth that I don’t even remember handing over my credit card. I’ve read that this property had won many awards from the Marriott Corporation which is not a surprise because Chris is really a hands on manager. During our stay I saw him walking around the property making sure everything was alright, picking up debris and greeting people.
The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Similar to our first visit we got a good nights sleep. Consistency – what we had expected.

The breakfast buffet was excellent. Genie was our server and she made sure we got everything we needed. Our coffee mugs were always topped off and the dirty plates were taken away. All this with a warm smile!

Thanks to the staff at Courtyard at Lancaster for a relaxing stay. We will be back!

I came to Lancaster on a last minute getaway to do some bike riding. I chose the Courtyard based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is right off Route 30, about 10 minutes from downtown with easy access in all directions.

The front desk people could not have been more pleasant and check-in took less than a minute. I've never stayed in a Courtyard before, and the room had the look of a thoughtful pre-fab design, using every bit of space efficiently and giving the room the illusion of being larger than it is. I had two queen beds and the room still had space for a comfortable chair in the corner, which was great for me because I don't like watching TV in bed. Also plenty of room for my bike and gear.

The room could use just a little more light overall. The desk space is kind of unusual, with a pullout table on wheels jutting out a few inches from the desk. I found this to be handy on several occasions. Plenty of outlets. Wireless Internet worked easily but wasn't particularly fast. There's an ethernet jack but no cable in the room. The TV is a good size flatscreen with a decent channel selection.

There's a small space with a refrigerator down low, a very small microwave middle and coffee pot and ice bucket on top. It's kind of cramped and awkward but functional.

The beds were comfortable. Pretty good modular closet and dresser space with an iron and board. The bathroom was well set up but the shower head sprayed water from where it screwed into the pipe. I've seen this problem with surprising frequency in hotels, but this one was aimed directly at the towel rack, soaking the towel closest to the shower. Fortunately, the bathroom was very well provided with towels.

In the lobby there's a bar and place for breakfast. I did not partake. There's a little snack/sundries stand adjacent to the front desk so it was manned 24 hours. I'm surprised other hotels don't do the same kind of thing. There's a reasonably well equipped fitness room and a laundry room. The indoor pool is small and a bit murky. There's a spa too but the space is kind of unpleasant. There's an outdoor sitting area adjacent which seemed nice.

Overall I was satisfied with the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
