We stayed in this hotel last month, it is spooky since the hotel is huge but the occupancy is really low, I counted six cars outside, very quiet lobby and hotel. The rooms are very ill maintained and filthy, need to be exterminated. The staff is very friendly it was late when I checked in and the front desk lady... More

Photos are deceptive. This place is in a TIME WARP and management does not care. This was THE MOST SCARY and REPULSIVE experience I have ever had a motel. I was charged $200.00 to cancel a room that was not fit for an animal to stay in. The door latch would not secure the door. The mattresses on the beds... More

They should actually pay you to stay here. This is the most disgusting dirty hotel I have EVER stayed in. Pretty awful the state allows a place like this to operate. The rooms can not have been cleaned in at least a month. I found multiple insects in my room and the entire building reeks of mold.

Needed to do business in Carlisle and lived in Carlisle when hotel was the Embers and wasn't too bad. Now-it is awful. Nothing works to include the security locks, ice machines, hot tub. sauna, etc. Room was ok for size. Nothing was very clean. Needs serious renovation and updating. Would never recommend this to anyone.

Went to the car show and checked into this hotel. The lobby, and subsequently, the room smelled of mold. They said there was wireless internet....NOT. Had to walk to the lobby (half mile) to hook up, but when I got back to the room, no internet. The stink was horrid. No ice. The ice machine had cobwebs and cigarette packs... More

Reserved a block of rooms for guests that were coming in for an event. When I reserved, I specifically asked about the bar and how late it remained open, I was told at least midnight. . Our plan was to leave the party at 9 and go back to the hotel and visit with friends/family in the bar. They assured... More

The hotel decor is vintage and hasn't been updated in somtime and isn't so bad that it should deserve such a lousy rating on that basis. I stayed at the hotel two times on the recomedation of co-workers that were staying or had stayed there before. My stays were only a day apart and on the first night I thought... More

The best news I heard during my two night stay for the PA State Chess Tournament is that we will will not be staying in this dump next year. Atrocious place. No wifi and judging from other reviews never works. Sheets like tissue paper, worn with a blood stain on one. Less than one roll of toilet paper for two... More
