Not much to like. Checked in at 10:30 after a long drive. Keys did not work but the maid let us into the room. Replace the keys at front desk, they wouldn't work either. Returned to the front desk again. Employee followed to the room and couldn't get the key to work either. Let us in with the master key. We elected to stay in the room since it was now after 11:00 PM. Went into the room and found towel rack pulled out of the wall. Went to breakfast found that all of the appliances were plugged into a single extension cord causing the breakers to trip when two customers tried to us the appliance. (this wiring cannot be in compliance with local electric code)

We were impressed with the hotel staff. Every one we interacted with was friendly and efficient! Breakfast tropical fruit mix was fresh and delicious! We will go back to Lancaster Arts Hotel if we are in the area. Also, The Fridge restaurant next door has delicious pizza and salad and a huge selection of beer, also wine.
