I am a tour operator in South Bend, Indiana offering group travel by motor coach. We were en route to Atlantic City and spent our first night - July 14, 2014 - at this hotel. I can't begin to explain what a wonderful experience this was for this group of travelers. Even yet, they still talk about the outstanding service,... More

Convenient location and excellent service. We hurried back one day as they advertised an ice cream social from 3-6PM. We arrived at 5:45 and they had shut down - staff... More

The staff were very nice. The hotel looks pretty and is not far from Hershey Park. I like that they have tea and coffee available 24/7. However, the shower had mold and mildew, the corners and behind doors and furniture and under bed were very dirty. Overall, not too happy. Glad I brought Lysol.

The hotel is modern, nicely decorated and very clean. The beds and pillows are super comfy. The room was nice and spacious. The staff was exceptional! We had such a great experience, we are booking a weekend getaway there again. I absolutely recommend the Best Western Primier in Harrisburg!
