CLEAN, SIMPLE ROOMS FOR THE BUDGET-MINDED TRAVELER

Lancaster’s Hotel is located in downtown McCarthy, and caters to the budget traveler.  We are not a hostel so there are no shared duties, no kitchen area, and the no-frills style rooms are spartan.  The simple rooms are newly renovated.  Most rooms have bunk, twin or double beds or a combination of bed types.

Lancaster’s offers clean, comfortable, private rooms for 1 to 4 persons. Lancaster’s is a very popular hotel with back-country hikers and has only 10 rooms. Designed for the budget traveler with access to a reading room and single-person-use shared bathrooms and shower rooms. Lancaster’s can also store unneeded baggage for you while you visit the spectacular backcountry destinations of this World Heritage Site.

Lancaster’s is open from June 1st to September 10th each year.

THE HISTORY OF LANCASTER’S BACKPACKER HOTEL

Lancaster’s is located in the Jim Edwards historic home and is named after another former tenant, Slim Lancaster – two of McCarthy’s long line of well-known characters.  The restoration of Lancaster’s began in 2002 and opened in spring 2003. Upgrades were performed in May 2009.  The final upgrade to an improved no-frills budgetel will be completed in late 2010.

AMENITIES INCLUDED WITH YOUR ROOM
