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 The hotel is very outdated, especially the carpet but seemed relatively clean.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. 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
