Review: Avid Hotels (IHG Property)- Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Avid HotelsA few weeks back, the Michael W Travels family took a visit to Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

During our visit, we spent a night on a train at the Red Caboose Motel in Ronks, PA. We almost spent both nights there but we were glad that we didn’t.

For the second night, we decided to try a relatively new IHG brand called Avid Hotels. The property, located in Lancaster, PA was in a good location and available at a pretty reasonable price.When we drove up, we thought the hotel had a very nice style. It’s somewhat cookie-cutter while also standing out due to the red accents on the building.

Upon entering the large, open lobby we were greeted and checked-in pretty quickly.The hallways is lined with a well designed carpet.The room wasn’t huge but it was laid out well and had some nice features, utilizing the space very well.Here is a view from the far side of the room.Our room had two queen beds which were comfortable but maybe a bit softer than I prefer.The kids made good use of the TV during our limited time hanging around in the room. I took advantage of the desk area to write a post for my site!There’s a small refrigerator in the room. This piece of furniture also had an ironing board, place to leave your things/ open your bag on or even sit if needed.The bathroom was very clean. The soap bottles were attached to the walls both in the shower and by the sink.

My one wish would be to have a handheld shower head rather than the attached kind. I assume most hotels do this to minimize the risk of breakage and need for repair.Other Amenities:

Breakfast was grab and go style due to COVID-19. The kids enjoyed the boxed cereal and I was a bit surprised by how solid the egg & cheese sandwich was (I had no expectation that it would be good).

There’s also a small pool which we didn’t use and a nice but small fitness center.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, our stay at Avid Hotels was very good. We all enjoyed the comfortable room and the price was right. The paid price of the room with tax was $89.63. Rather than pay the money, I decided to book a reward stay for 12,500 points.

This might not be the best redemption but we rarely use IHG points. I was happy to save around $90 for this little road trip!

Avid Hotels is located at 2151 Lincoln Highway East Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

  1. It feels like we’re going back to the 90’s in terms of style, between the loud accent colors on the building, and the hallway carpet reminds me of “that” green/purple fountain drink cup that was ubiquitous at the time.
