This hotel is typical for this price point. The room is small but the bathroom is redone with decent fixtures. The sheets and bedding are new. There is a large parking lot up top that can accommodate large RVs. The hotel is pet friendly with a sur charge. There is a large field behind the hotel for walking dogs.

The room was small, but clean. The shower took a while for the water to get to the right temperature, but it did eventually get there. Breakfast consisted of fresh make-them-yourself waffles, plus several kinds of bread. There was a warming tray with French toast sticks; I don't know if that changes from day to day. Also apple and orange... More

We ended up here on our road trip as we were too tired to carry on. They did accept our dogs at an extra charge of $10 each. The room was very out of date and extremely smelly. I suppose it was clean but because of the smell it just put me off!! Would not stay here again knowing that... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Usually a cheaper hotel off the highway is dirty and a little scary, but the room was a decent size, the mattress wasn't great but wasn't awful either and the bathroom was rather large. Everyone was friendly and there was a complimentary breakfast the next morning.

Our review is positively biased because we chose to stop here because we wanted to get off I-81 in a freezing rain storm--we were so relieved to find a safe haven! The desk lady was pleasant and accepted the coupon from the Travel Information office, which was for less than $50. We asked for a non-smoking room away from the... More

Convenient and close to highway. Has Microwave, refrigerator, iron and board. Room was adequate with shower. Have stayed here a number of years when passing through. Seems to have gotten better over the years. Still accommodates smoking downstairs but the total upstairs is non-smoking. We used to stay here because it was pet friendly but we stay here now because... More

Not horrible, we've stayed in worse. Our first choice didn't have any rooms left (we're traveling with our dog), so we had no choice. The room was clean, first on our list! Small, but adequate for an overnight stay. Had a microwave, fridge, and room safe. Nothing glamorous.

This hotel is right near the interstate and close to Harrisburg. The check-in was simple, clerk was nice. The room was clean, and had a microwave and a fridge in it. The bed was comfy and the shower worked. The room was sort of dark (poor lighting) and breakfast was over by 9 am so we missed it. Breakfast should... More

Friendly staff at the counter. Hotel was clean and comfortable for a couple of nights. I didn't try the breakfast so I can't comment on that. Rooms were adequate and quiet. I would stay here again when in Hershey.
