We chose this hotel based primarily on the price. Location was also a factor. As for the hotel, its pretty basic. Didn't spend much time in room outside of sleeping. Bedding had an old appearance. Paint off the wall in bathroom, toilet paper sitting on toilet because roller was broke. Cleanliness was questionable. The continental breakfast nook was small and... More

Not that this review will mean anything to the owner/manager of this motel but my review is to help the hard-working traveler. My son and I stayed 5 nights as we were on a budget. I guess we got what we paid for. This hotel needs updating, improvements and overall sprucing up. The hotel elevator was acting up, the breakfast... More

I had stayed at this hotel before and it is a good bargain. It's right off the exit, and there are good restaurants nearby. The hotel is very outdated, especially the carpet but seemed relatively clean. The displeasing thing was at my last stay it rained very hard and was awakened at 3:30AM by the loud sound of dripping. The... More

My husband and I were traveling for business and after trying to find a vacancy one exit up at 2am, we stopped here and were just thankful for a place to lay our heads. When we walked into the room, it was very clean and included a mini fridge and microwave. The beds were not necessarily plush, but comfortable. Water... More

The room was clean and everything about the room worked fine... but the internet was barely functional on all servers. It would stay connected for about five minutes at a clip and then would reset and you'd have to restart, which is not practical when you're here on business. Chose the hotel for its location near my destination for the... More

We stayed for one night and found this hotel to be better than expected. We walked in without reservations (we had checked on-line to be sure they had rooms) and were checked in without and delay. The clerk was friendly and professional. Since it was just a one-night stay, we didn't really explore the hotel but found the rooms to... More

We relocated from NY and needed an affordable place to stay while we waited for our new home to be ready. For under $400 for a week, I was not expecting much. The staff here are very diverse and speak many languages, be patient and kind, and they'll be very patient and kind in return. I get a kind good... More

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
