The facilities were great. Some cabooses were modernized more than others but overall we loved it and will stay again.

Unique Fire pit was a total disappointment - more like a construction burn pile

Very neat experience for my two train fanatics. As long as they are pleased, then I’m pleased, and that’s all that matters to me.

Newly renovated and very friendly

This is the third time we have stayed here and the first with the new owners. Our caboose was beautifully renovated and very cozy in the cold temperatures. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our kids loved the experience. We took a buggy ride, saw the train go by and visited local attractions. We definitely want to stay again and experience more of Lancaster! Casey Jones restaurant was great too!

A unique experience.

Very different and fun. Really nice staff and had everything you would expect in this price range at a motel. Great location to enjoy all the Amish attractions. Very nice for families. Ate in the dining car. Good breakfast and very accommodating

Trip with Grandchildren

Pros: the quiet & peacefulness
Cons: add steak to the restaurant menu
Location: take a train ride, or perhaps a buggy ride, tour a farm, as there is so much to do in this area.
Just a really neat experience we got to share with our grandchildren & their parents. Our rooms were very cozy & beds comfortable. Check in was a breeze and lady that checked us in was very helpful

nice hotel close to attractions

Pros: staff was great
Cons: We did not have anywhere to hang our clothes. A couple wall hooks would have been appreciated
Location: Lots to do nearby
The hotel staff was excellent as was the food at the caboose dining room. We liked that so many attractions were close.

Fun experience for young kids

We recently stayed with our 2 young children. The room was very outdated, despite recent renovation info on the hotel home page, and in need of a serious dusting and thorough cleaning. However, there was plenty of space inside and the experience was great for the kids.
