    Another news article about The Doyle (from the local weekly Perry County Times/News-Sun/Duncannon Record) but I did learn a couple of things from this one: http://www.pennlive.com/perry-county...oyles_fam.html

    Good article, it was about Billville as much as the Doyle. If I ever won Megabucks, I'd buy the place and renovate it to it's former glory.

    If I ever win megabucks, I'd buy the place and preserve it in its present glory.

    I'm always amazed that people complain about The Doyle. It's not as though after about thirty seconds after checking in that you can't gauge the quality of the room. Or that guidebook or "trail news" didn't warn you. But The Doyle is an "experience" far past that of just a place to stay. I beleive those that only want to "be at one" with nature probably should look for trails other than the AT. The AT experience is so much more than hiking. Sure, many of my best memories are of the hike, but I don't value those memories I made in trail towns - Duncannon and The Doyle amongst them - any less. Were The Doyle to be razed (for a mini-wal-mart or an upgrade), I would miss it on my next hike through Duncannon.

    There is nothing wrong with the Doyle, good people, food is filling, and damn-it the folks are just too friendly to hiker trash! Ohhh I forgot you can get a beer!


    Whiners and complainers need to take a shower and stop stinking up the place.........................
    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    yes, I agree. Which is why you can't/shouldn't try to hike the trail for $1,500.

    Walmart won't build in the floodplain. So it's safe.

    I didn't stay here, but the food and service was AWESOME! After hearing about the evening before and spending time hanging out, I really wish I could have stayed a day or two!!!

    I never spent the night there but I've had lunch there twice while hiking.
    Last time I was waiting outside for them to open when a lady came out of the bank next door and gave me a ten dollar bill!

    Hey all, is The Doyle still open? I can't call and reach anyone (okok, it's only 1030am), mailbox is full, website doesn't work. Concerned I didn't check into this more than a week before we need to stay there! Has anyone had experience with the Stardust Motel north on 11/15? Incase the Doyle doesn't work out.

    There seems to be a time zone discrepancy in part of Duncannon, in that block "hiker midnight" does not translate to the same atomic Eastern Time as in the woods.

    Try calling back after noon and telling them the website doesn't work.

    Yeah, I got a hold of them. Forgot to mention the website. Still, glad to have a place to finally relax! Hope the bar is open when we get there

    Their presence on Facebook just woke up. I wonder if Vickey and Pat hired a social media manager. (Salary: one free beer per week??)
