The Lancaster Motel, Established 1955

Host An Event

The Lancaster Motel is the best in-town option for groups! Here is a basic rundown of our spaces, what we can host or have hosted in the past.

Our Spaces
We’re on Route 2 in the center of Lancaster. Our building has two wings of rooms connected to the motel lobby, centered between them. You do have to go outside to get to the lobby from your room. You do NOT have to go outside to get to the event spaces once you’re inside the lobby.

- We currently offer queen and double beds. 4 Standard Queen rooms (single Queen bed for 2 people) and 7 Deluxe Queen rooms (two queen beds for up to 4 people) and 11 Deluxe Double rooms (2 double beds for up to 4 people). We have 1 Efficiency w/kitchenette (2 Queen beds and a pullout sofa) and 1 Extended Stay w/private entrance. That's a total of 24 rooms. Given all that, we are currently able to sleep up to about 90 depending on bed occupancy. Also, a couple of rooms do have futon beds and we can throw in a cot here and there depending on the situation.

- In addition to the rooms, we have a large open lobby great for sitting and people watching or playing some retro games. We offer our Retro Room (up to 50) and Banquet Room (up to 150) for private gatherings.

General Groups

If you have a group and are expecting to need more than 5 rooms, please contact us directly at (603) 788-4921. Depending on the dates, we can likely place your rooms together and perhaps offer a discount on the stay. Please understand that we need to place these group-buys on ONE invoice to qualify for a discount. In general, we cannot offer discounts on weekend stays.


If you would like to host a company or social event and want exclusive use of the hotel or if you’ll want to set up tents, please contact us directly at (603) 788-4921 and ask for the event planner.

Wedding Groups

We’re getting lots of requests for wedding room blocks or buyouts, especially for the Summer. We understand weddings are tough to plan, so we thought sharing our policies in advance would smooth out your experience somewhat. So here’s the scoop…

To GUARANTEE rooms for your wedding group, we require a full property buyout. Meaning, if you would like to guarantee rooms for guests of your wedding, you will be responsible for filling all 24 rooms on the property for the stay.

If you prefer NOT to guarantee rooms: Obviously, folks who are in town for your wedding are more than welcome to stay with us anyway and can book any available rooms at the going rate online or by phone or email.

Buyout Policy

Payments will need to be made on one invoice and the organizer will be responsible for any damages and expenses from the group. A 20% deposit will be collected at the time of the booking with the remainder due 4 weeks before check-in. We also have an 8-week cancellation policy: if you cancel your event more than 8 weeks before the event, we will give you a full refund.

If less than 8 weeks but more than 4 weeks, we will keep the 20% deposit. If less than 4 weeks before the event, we have a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the original invoice. If any events will be hosted on the property, tents put up, etc., we will also need to speak about costs and liability/event insurance.

This makes it easier for everyone on both sides. It also insures that wedding guests are not being disturbed by other guests on the property and vice versa. We hope you find these policies reasonable. If not, we’ll do what we can to make an adjustment if at all possible. We’re looking forward to having you here!
