Excellent location specially if you are not going to venture far from Harrisburg. You are within walking distance of every Downtown attraction. Even in the winter cold is fairly easy to walk. Clean hotel, friendly staff and good breakfast. Don't blame the hotel staff for the taxi cabs. I would stay again without hesitation.

I had a great stay at the Riverfront Comfort Inn. We were in Hershey for the PIAA wrestling championships. The room was very clean and they had just rolled out all new pillows, sheets and bedding including new mattresses. I slept like a baby. The bathroom and shower were very clean. Each morning we enjoyed the buffet breakfast including a... More

This is a typical Comfort Inn, in our experience. We chose it based on location and were able to use points for a free night. The room was reasonably sized but with no extra space and the only upholstered chair was positioned next to the dresser that held the TV so not suitable for viewing. We did find the pillows... More

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Comfort Inn Riverfront! Yes, we are a pet friendly hotel, just busier then normal with dogs as the American Kennel Club had a big show here over the last few days at the Farm Show!

I stayed at the Riverfront Comfort Inn in November the night before the Harrisburg Marathon and had a good stay. The room was clean and the service at the desk was good. Good bang for your buck. I'd stay there again.

Initially hesitant to stay as the hotel is a good deal older than most of the other options in town, and in our experience this often leads to disappointing stays. Not the case with this stay, which is why I chose to write this review, as I rarely take the time unless it's to warn others to stay away. Upon... More

The hotel accommodations were much better than I expected. I was at the Horse Expo and just wanted a clean bed and a good night's sleep, but instead I was pampered by the luxury, lots of extra towels and four fluffy pillows on each bed, with a note that I had a choice of firm or soft. Everything was spotless!... More

We were extremely pleased with this hotel because the front desk was very friendly and accomodating. As Choice Privileges member, we asked for a river view and they gave it to us even though the hotel was almost fully booked due to a convention at the Expo Center.
