My daughter was stranded at Harrisburg airport due to weather (tornadoes!). I called this property from my hometown, I did not know what to do. I was in a panic trying to get my daughter out of the airport somewhere safe. I am a BW rewards member so called this property directly. Stephen answered the phone and immediately calmed my... More

Spacious and comfortable rooms equipped with a fridge and microwave. Great WiFi. O'Reilly's Irish Pub and Restaurant served some nice brews and an excellent BBQ pulled pork dish, their breakfast was also quite good {nice to have discounts for the restaurant for being a hotel customer].

You made my business trip pleasurable and relaxing. I could concentrate on the business at hand and know that if I had any requests related to my night's stay, you would handle it and handle well. Thanks so much for your thoughtful customer service, care and attentiveness. I enjoyed staying at your hotel and will come again.

OK I guess after traveling for business and staying in 4 and 5 star hotels (in ancient times) I became a hotel snob. I never considered a Best Western and in my mind ranked them with very low quality places to stay. We were 6 people and a small young dog traveling from Maine to North Carolina in two cars... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel, located a short distance off of I – 81 in Harrisburg. After several and hours in the car with our kids, we checked into this hotel, mainly because of the restaurant/bar attached, and the indoor heated pool. The Irish pub had delicious food, and a pretty impressive draft beer selection that my husband... More

We stayed as a family of 4, the room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel amenities we used included the pool, game room, and restaurant, O'Reilly's Tap Room and Kitchen. The pool and game rooms were clean and quiet. We had the breakfast buffet at O'Reilly's and it was amazing! They had something for everybody. We attended a Harrisburg... More

Easter Brunch was amazing! The food, presentation and service were awesome. Everything was fresh, and there was a wide selection of food and the staff was quick to refill items. The seafood station was huge with plenty of choices. We will be back for Mother's Day!
