Better than expected.
What fun to stay in a caboose. My husband is a train nut and could not have been happier. The rooms were outfitted with everything including small microwave and cube refrigerator. There was an adjacent restaurant that was in train cars and very good. We wished that we had planned more than a one night stay.

Just do it! You won’t regret it!
Great motel. The kids LOVED it. Amazingly comfortable accommodations in a small space. If you want to know what tiny home loving is like, here is your chance!

Caboose Motel
We loved theme of the motel since all of our grandchildren love trains. The bathroom had no shelving to put anything on and was very tiny, but Im sure it was limited in size because it was a train car. The double bed mattress was uneven in regards to the back was higher than the front which was a bit uncomfortable for the person sleeping in the back feeling like they were constantly sliding forward. The staff was absolutely wonderful and made us feel special

Our friends recommended staying here for our trip with them. We knew we would be arriving later than check in (we spent the day at Hershey) so I called that morning and gave our name and our friends name to the guy who answered the phone. For some reason by the time we got there to check in they had already given our friends caboose away and only had the farm house left for them. Which left 4 kids completely devastated. We had been talking about this stay for weeks and the kids were sooo excited about it, only to get there and be told they couldn’t stay in a train car. The only one they had left was a couple car, which wouldn’t work for any of us because we had small kids who couldn’t be left alone. I know things happen sometimes, but, this situation to me really bothered us because I was told that morning that everything would be ready to go and we were both fine. We drove an hour out of the way to stay here just for this experience.
