Better hotel rooms out there for the same price range. Staff was very nice but the rooms are very outdated. It's fine for a quick over night stopping point but not a place for a luxurious weekend. As I said before, the staff is really nice but other than that I would find something else!

We stayed here during our Hershey Park visit. We had a suite on the top floor. I really liked that the bedroom had its own door. The sofa was not a pull bedwhich would have been nice. The kids had to sleep on a blow up air bed that I brought so all was well. Staff was friendly and accommodating.... More

Visited the Econo Lodge Harrisburg for one night. We went to Hershey Park for two days and stayed here because it was soooo cheap. But, you get what you pay for. The toilet was loose, toilet seat didn't fit, front desk staff was inattentive. They were all on their cell phones in the office, I had to knock on the... More

If you want to spend more than $80 a night for a room with a pile of french fries on the floor next to the bed, sasquatch-size black hairs on the towels, and murky stains as visible as daylight all over the sheets, then definitely book your stay here! Honestly, the only way you could make this work is to... More

The man at the counter was not pleased that I got such a good rate via TripAdvisor. I was given the room next to elevator. It had unpleasant surprises. There wasn't even a toilet paper holder. Go somewhere else.

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

Rooms acceptable very few tenants ,tornado warnings and staff unable to comfort my roommate who was terrified. Language barrier a big problem. I totally believe in the service industry English is necessary.. Did have a huge bug on my pillow

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.
