While passing through Harrisburg we needed a clean, safe room just to overnight. This place fit the bill perfectly. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower satisfactory. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast is the standard pastry/cereal/juice/coffee setup so we passed on it. What impressed me is that there was a billing error that the hotel... More

I accidentally scheduled my reservation for the wrong date. As a result, I would have ended up getting charged a no-show fee. I came in the next night and only at that time did I realize the mistake. Neil and Lilly were really nice about it. They said they would keep the no-show fee on from the previous night, but... More

The hotel was in a great location. There is very little Parking. We ended up parking next to the dumpster The room could have been cleaner and there was only 2 lumpy pillows per bed. The breakfast left something to be desired. It was adequate for sleeping and showering

This hotel is a great, MUCH less expensive alternative to the hotels in Hershey, and it's only 15 minutes away. We arrived after a 2-hour drive from Laurel, MD and a 9-hour day at Hersheypark to find an easy, courteous check-in, a clean, quiet, spacious room and a great night's sleep. With a AAA discount, it was only $80/night, vs.... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. We arrived around midnight and the person checking us in gave us the online price without us requesting it. He was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The lobby is not much to look at - hardly a lobby at all - made me concerned about what the rooms might be like.... More

We stayed here on July 4th. The location was perfect for where I had to be and was near to restaurants and shopping. It was nice and quiet and I liked the touchless amenities. They offered a free continental breakfast, as well. During the early evening hours the touchless bathroom light was priceless. At 2 am when I used the... More

I'm not sure if I specified a non smoking room, but ours smelled like stale cigarette smoke. We bought febreeze and air fresheners for the room. The light over the sink wouldn't brighten. You could see what you were doing, but it wasn't bright enough for any type of make up application. The light and vent cover in the bathroom... More

The room was extremely worn out, with holes in the bedspread and curtains, worn out linens, and a BAD odor. The young man at the desk was very nice, and was kind enough to explain that there was a mandatory requirement for a credit card because if you left the room dirty they would charge you, or if you took...

This is a reasonably priced hotel clean quiet and the desk staff are very friendly. I am a truck driver and this hotel is across the street from pilot so if your a driver in need of rest or time out of your truck this is a good place

Well worth the money. It was cheap and clean. No problems and it is in a nice location close to all the hershey attractions. We will be regulars here. Newly remodeled also. The staff were accommodating to our needs and everything was wonderful.
