This is a very clean, modern, comfortable hotel with a nice coffee/tea/fruit-infused water/cookie bar near reception. My friend and I were given a room facing the pool, which made me nervous, but all was quiet when I needed it to be. I'd guess the drive from the hotel to downtown Harrisburg is around 10 minutes.

We travel to the southern US every year with our children for their Spring Break, and this is now the second time we have stayed at this particular Best Western nestled in the city of Harrisburg, PA. When we travel it's two families of 5, and we are typically arriving early evening after a 16 hour ride in the van.... More

The staff at this hotel were awesome. Went above and beyond the call of duty. Unfortunately they were trying to clean up a low-quality experience. The ceiling in my bathroom was leaking water from the toilet above (eww). They moved me to a new room. The ceiling fan in the new bathroom was dangling. Not reassuring. I arranged for a... More

I stay at this hotel somewhat frequently because I work in Harrisburg and commute about 2 hours to home--if weather is bad, or days are too long, I always opt to stay here. My experience has always been great. The rooms are clean and spacious, and I always sleep well here, which is hard to do in a hotel. Recently,... More

My family and I recently attended the Mid Atlantic Hearing Expo hed at the Best Western PREMIER in Harrisburg, PA. Most Best Western Hotels that I have visited have had the appearance of economy hotels. This property had a much more luxurious feel. The lobby was very nicely decorated. The guest rooms were very comfortable and also nicely decorated. The... More

This was the biggest Best Western I have ever stayed at. The hotel lobby is very nice. I did not get a chance to use the fitness center. the only problem I has was when I ordered room service and the menu was not up todate. I did not know this until after I placed my order and they called... More

This hotel was the nicest hotel I have stayed in so far for work. It was very simple to find. We were starving when we arrived so the Irish Pub was perfect. The food was not the greatest but the environment was very welcoming. I loved the giant snow flakes hanging from the ceiling as we walked into the hotel.... More
