Excellent4.0 / 5
Great family stay!
We were very impressed with our recent stay here! The motel and restaurant staff were all very friendly and informative! The location is great - very close to the Strasburg train activities and a short drive to Lancaster. There were also plenty of activities on site, including a playground, amish buggy rides, petting zoo, arcade, movies, gift shop and restaurant. We could tell that the rooms have been recently updated and the heat worked well during a very cold weekend. We can't wait to visit again in the spring!

Sleep In A Train
Sleeping in a train is very different from your traditional motel/hotel room. If you rent a half caboose, they are small but comfy. There are full cabooses for families or suites. Some caboose windows do not open if you want fresh air. There is no pool but onsite there are: buggy rides, eat on a real train, ice cream caboose, game room, large deck with kiddy rides and a piano that plays by itself, picnic tables and bbqs, area to watch the Strasburg Rail Railroad pass the motel, feed the animals, vending machines and free ice, park next to your caboose, an old silo where you can walk to the top and watch the beautiful views, nightly free movies ( in the summer they are outdoors, in the winter the movies are in the barn and it's cold). The area is very safe and is surrounded by real Amish farmlands. Amish buggies pass the motel all throughout the day and night. You can walk the grounds any time of the day and feel safe.

Poor1.0 / 5
The room was tiny. The first room had an electric heater that needed to be plugged in and the controls were not easy to see. The second room had a heater in the wall that was extremely noisy and was either too hot or too cold. There were no drawers to put clothes in. there were several hooks and a shelf. We would never go back

Unique accommodations! Kids loved sleeping in the old train and having the train tracks right in front of the motel!

Charming But Poor Customer Service
This motel has charm and my little one loved sleeping in a train. I had to give it two stars because we were not given the room that we booked. We booked a room for 6 but were given a room for 5. One of my children had to sleep on an uncomfortable cot in my mother's room. When we discovered the error we were told there was nothing the property could do and had to return to the front desk 2 times in order to get refunded the price difference between the room we were given and the room we booked. I felt good customer service would have immediately refunded us without us having to basically beg. We were also made to feel that it was somehow our fault because we "should have called to confirm the number of people in the room." This was our 21st completed booking through and the first time we have ever had this issue. The room was clean, but a bit drafty. However, I did not expect to be in the lap of luxury as I understood these are converted cabooses and train cars. The petting zoo animals appear well cared for. The bonfire pit is a concern as it is barrier free and located directly next to the playground. There were several burned out mattresses here. We did not eat at the restaurant so I cannot comment on that. I know this property has recently been taken over by new owners, so perhaps some hospitality/management training and additional training for the staff in customer service is warranted as I feel our situation was handled poorly.
