"False Advertising"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Picked the hotel because I thought it was "new" as it was advertised as opening in November, 2013 many times. However, it may have opened in November of 2013 but it is not "new." It is being renovated. Although my stay was just fine as far as accommodations, comfy bed, big room, etc., it was not the shiny new place I expected. In addition, there were some other disappointing factors in my stay! First, the hotel really needed some more renovations to be considered "new" and the A/C was so antiquated, it was hard to find a happy medium between meat locker cold and tropically hot. Second, I was fooled again by semantics and should have clarified before booking! Just so you know, folks, apparently a "Lancaster Style" breakfast is the same as a continental breakfast. In other words, not really a breakfast but a snack! In addition, the hotel's $15/night parking fee is a real bummer especially since, on the weekend, the lady at the desk said I could park in the street as long as I move my car by 8:00 AM. False! Went out at 7:35AM and had a ticket on the window. Thankfully, the ticket was only for $20. So I was only out $5 additional for that night. I don't think I would have been as unhappy with the hotel if I had just known the truth. I felt like I was a little set up!

"Hidden Costs."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Hotel Lancaster is a nice hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. And, on the face of it, affordable. But beware hidden costs. Parking is not free. You need to park in the garage. @ $20 per day. Then, breakfast is very very continental. Unlike other chains which are now serving full size hot breakfasts. No laundry facilities on site. If you are staying for a sports event, wash in the sink and hope it dries. Nearest laundromat was about three blocks away and some of the outside street folks are kind of sketchy looking. No pool or workout room (although long time staff said that the former hotel had these). The incidentals start adding up and at the end of the time you'll be spending what it costs to stay at other locations.
