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

The hotel room was clean and smelled clean! The room was well appointed and I felt comfortable sleeping here. WE stayed two nights. No noise keeping you up at night, i.e. thin walls. The front desk was very accommodating especially Ehab! He gave a wonderful recommendation for dinner at the Passage to India restaurant!! Fantastic food!

Let me start by saying that the staff of this hotel are indeed nice. However, one cannot put lipstick on a pig. The hotel is in need of a good cleaning and remodeling. We arrived at the hotel after a long day at Hershey Park and had that terrible oh no moment...when you realize that you have booked a stay... More
