Great stay! We actually cancelled our stay at a different hotel and wound up at Best Western who had outstanding customer service, amenities, food and so much more! Thank you Best Western for reviving our business trip with great grace and business!

Very Nice Hotel for the price. We highly recommend this hotel. The distance to Hershey Park was not bad at all. We were here at Christmas time and the hotel decorations were beautiful. We will stay here again if we are passing through this area.

Clean, close to major highways, near several locations for take out food if travelling with pets. Pet friendly with room for them outside. Has excellent restaurant on site with a good lounge. Nice lobby to sit and enjoy conversations with other friends .

I stayed here for 2 nights for a friend's wedding held nearby. I had a room facing the center lobby. I came in around 10:30 PM, there was a very loud party going on in one of the banquet rooms. This despite abundant signage advertising a quiet time starting at 10PM. I called the front desk and they said it... More

We were thrilled with this hotel - we had to make a last-minute cancellation elsewhere, and when we called this location, we expected to pay $130+ since it was summertime and the peak of tourist season. However, we were offered a rate of $107. The room was clean, and had all the necessities. The beds were older and not terribly... More

We spent one night at the Best Western Premier Central in Harrisburg in early December, as a part of a quick trip to relatively nearby Hershey Park. We chose the hotel based on reviews and their availability of new "family suites," which comprise two bedrooms. We were two adults and two teenagers, and the set up was wonderful. The hotel... More

This is the 2nd time I stayed at this property. The lobby area is always very clean & welcoming. The rooms were also clean. For the price & location to Hershey attractions you can't go wrong. Great indoor pool & game room for the kids. The bar has a wide variety of beers & the food was good too. Would... More

Love this hotel. Clean, comfy, convenient, yada yada... but for one, small thing... Not sure if all rooms are like this. I stayed in 362. When you turn the light, by the door on, it turns on the electric for the lights by the bed, and for the plug, which is the plug that is for the clock radio, where... More

Got two room at $50 a night on Priceline. I was impressed at the value for the money. Clean updated rooms and easy to access from Hershey Park (Less than 15 minutes away). Only complaint was that the room was next to the pool and the noise from the pool could be heard as my children were trying to sleep.... More
