The staff was very nice and helpful. However when we returned to the Inn at night, the woman sitting at the front desk did not look up to see who was there and only looked up when I said hello. Security issue! The room needed upgrading how ever it was clean. The door to the room looked as if it was kicked in and the safey lock was non existence. The walls were patched with different colors than the original wall color. The sheetrock and celing tile above the shower was obviously water damaged. One of the pillow cases had a pink stain on it and another pillow's seam was open causing the stuffing to fall on the floor. Bed was comfortable and the air conditioner worked quite well.

Our initial room had garbage on the floor, specifically chicken bones from the previous guest. The fridge did not work. Staff made excuses rather than genuine expression of apology. Moved to another room and found broken glass on the floor by the bed. Same staff reaction with lame apology from a different staff member. Did not come immediately to clean up but waited for normal maid service time. Continental breakfast consisted of Little Debbie snacks. I was not impressed.

Dirty room, chicken bones on the floor in the first room and the fridge didn't work. They moved us to a different room and there was broken glass on the floor. Smells of cigarettes.

Disappointment

Pros: Clean, quiet, comfortable air temp, located for shopping.
Cons: At least water pressure needed to take a decent shower. And a clock and tissues.
Location: Rockvale and Tanger outlets. Dutch wonderland. Amish country.
Although clean, quiet and air temperature easy to control, the lack of common amenities is lacking, No tissues, no clock, no coffee maker (although coffee was available in lobby in am). Water pressure so terrible I only was able to take a shower 2 times out of 10 days, and that was with water barely coming out of shower head and went hot and cold every minute. Old tv with only 12 stations. Remote did not work properly. Cover on bed "crinkled" with every move. Sheets changed only once. No elevator for 2nd floor. There was plenty of parking available. And a WaWa across the street if you wanted good coffee and maybe donuts. If you need an inexpensive place to stay and aren't and aren't fussy, it will do.
