Front desk was very helpful at booking and check-in was quick. Bedding & towels are great, especially at this price point. Mattresses themselves were a bit sunken in - but not too bad. Location was so convenient to Riverfront Park & City Island Park, as well as walking to restaurants and the Capitol. Breakfast was good, but get there by... More

Carpets were very dirty, mattresses were very bad......dips everywhere. The ladies at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate and nice to have. The pool area was very dirty and had the same coffee spots for two days until we cleaned them ourselves. The pool area was outside of the restaurant area and both the restaurant... More

This is an absolutely gorgeous choice for a stay in Harrisburg, it looks new, but I know it's not. But it was my first time there, and I was overly impressed. One big plus was the second floor hallway was carpeted wall to wall, and you could not hear people walking by--the corridor looked to be half a block long,... More

Pros - Nice location on the river with historic train bridge over river that is beautiful and not loud. It is in a historic city area. Those that expect (and prefer) suburban chain locations - this isn't for you. Those who prefer a unique and urban feel will be happy. If your room is facing the river you do have... More

We stayed in this hotel one night, it was a pleasant stay. At arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant front desk manager. (Ehab) Our room was on the second floor as requested, side view of river. The room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The next morning was very busy in the breakfast area. It was well... More

THE GOOD - Staff was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were nice. Showers were awesome, almost like a massage. THE BAD - The beds slanted to the middle - great for 1 person per bed , but not so good for 2. Carpets need cleaned in a bad way. You have to go outside to get... More

We are a family of 4. The stay was very nice, but we are used to a little nice atmosphere when traveling. There were no problems, but depending on how you arrive at the hotel you might feel a little nervous about the location. Very clean, quiet and continental breakfast were ok. Standard eggs, sausage, muffins cereal. My wife was... More

As a single mom of 3 (14, 12, & 9) I did not feel safe outside the hotel at night. But the pool was nice and the staff were wonderful. Breakfast was good, rooms were clean. One thing we did that we all enjoyed was take our breakfast out to the river and enjoy the morning views. I think for... More
