Also, when we arrived around 10 pm, we had to wait about 20 minutes to be checked in. After driving for 4 hours with two children in the car, that is the not the type of... More

My family stayed here for a night. The staffs are very nice and friendly. Lobby is very bright. Cafe also is great. The best is the swimming pools (Indoor and outdoor). My daughter loves it. Only thing is the hotel is relative old and some point remodeling is recommended.

We stayed three nights for a book signing event. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was cleaned everyday. :) My family enjoyed both pools, the arcade and the playground. Had a great stay here.

It is located within minutes of the airport (shuttle service avail.), the Harrisburg East Mall, and a short drive to downtown Harrisburg, City Island, Hershey Park, and the Hollywood Casino. First thing first, the staff is... More

There are few times in life where our expectations are exceeded. This experience exceeded our expectations. Randy, the General Manager, (nicest guy ever!!!) could not have been more accommodating. We came for a weekend trip to Hershey, and are so happy we choose this hotel. He got us the room we needed and tended to our every need. He took... More
