ADA Accessible Units

As required by law for owner-occupied properties that have more than 5 units*, properties with 6 units or more should provide a unit that is reserved for customers with disabilities. The property should clearly identify these units and describe the accessible features in sufficient detail to reasonably permit individuals with disabilities to assess independently whether the given unit meets his or her accessibility needs. When selecting an ADA designated unit, if you do not have accessibility or other disability needs, please click cancel and select another unit unless it is the last unit available. If you do not meet the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for this unit and it is not the last unit available, Olde Square Inn reserves the right to change your reservation to another unit without your permission to accommodate customers with qualifying disabilities.

*According to federal law as found on https://www.ada.gov/taman3.html, places of lodging with 5 or less units and have the owner living on the property are exempt from having to have an ADA unit for those with disabilities.

Great place to stay! Had a great time. Nancy welcomed us with opened arms. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had dinner at Bube’s after we arrived it was a short walk and even around midnight seemed safe walking. The next morning Nancy made us the most wonderful breakfast. The French toast bake was out of this world. We will stay again if in the area. Thank you!

Lovely experience We had a wonderful experience at the Old Square Inn. From the moment we arrived, Nancy made us feel right at home. The accommodations were lovely and the breakfast was out of this world. We will be coming back for years to come. Thank you Nancy!!
Great Birthday Weekend Getaway Charming Inn, room was very cozy and comfortable. Nancy is so wonderful and she serves up a gourmet breakfast to die for.

Cozy pre-Valentine couple getaway My hubby and I enjoyed our stay 10/10! Nancy was the most gracious hostess, and her cooking was top notch! She is very knowledgeable about Mount Joy and surrounding towns, and it helped us find great shopping and eating. Everything was so clean and neatly decorated. We splurged and added a custom charcuterie and wine upon arrival. The mix of treats was so perfect and it was enough to snack on for 2 days. We will be back during warmer months. Thank you!!

Wonderful Getaway! We loved our stay at the Olde Square Inn. We were there for New Year's Eve. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, we even has a small tree in our room! Nancy, the innkeeper was so welcoming and helpful with any questions we had and made us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived. We also enjoyed a delicious made from scratch breakfast and she even sent us with brownies to go that were probably the best brownies I've ever had! it's evident that Nancy loves what she does and she does it very well! I would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to return.

Meeting the parents! We stayed in the cottage in the back of the property. It was so charming and comfortable and all the comforts of home. We didn't have breakfast, had other plans, but it sounded so yummy. very convient to town. The only recommendation I would make is for softer pillows.

Great B & B in a quaint little town! Nancy was very friendly and made us feel like friends. Our room was beautiful and clean. Breakfast each morning was delicious, Nancy even accommodated a a dietary need. Nancy recommended many restaurants in the area, which we chose the Catacomb under the ground, such a cool place.

Weekend Getaway Stayed with my wife, and another couple went with us. The place was extremely neat and clean. Nancy was a great hostess, and we asked for suggestions on some things. Nancy was spot on with her recommendations. the breakfasts that we received on Saturday, and Sunday was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Olde Square Inn, and the next time we are in the area it will surely be our place to stay. Great Time
Highly recommend - What a wonderful stay! As with any B&B, things start and end with the innkeeper. Nancy is a wonderful host, amazing cook, and opens her lovely home to guests. Breakfasts are worth getting started for, there are several work areas for us “work from everywhere” folks. The rooms were clean & comfortable. If your business takes to Mount Joy or the Lancaster area, staying at the Olde Square Inn will be a highlight of your trip.
