I request a first floor room close to the outside door and was very pleased as we not only were close to the general door way, but we also had our own private door to go outside to our car. The young lady at the front desk was very pleasant both on the day we checked in but also just... More

I wasn't sure about this but we gave it a shot! The rooms were very clean (who cares if they're a bit outdated? really, we're not here to admire the decorating!) and the beds were large and - most importantly - comfortable! Like surprisingly comfortable. Staff was helpful and nice. There's some road noise but we use white noise so... More

Room was clean but very small. Adequate for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't stay for more than that due to the room size. Bed was clean and comfortable. Shower was adequate. Continental breakfast was typical .... cereal, yogurt, toast, pastry, juice, coffee, and fruit.

The room was very clean and roomy. The bed huge. The bathroom a little small enough room for one person at a time but clean. My room had a love seat and table. I would stay again. Oh also quiet.

This was a last minute find, a gem. We were in a bind after we left a horrible Days Inn in Harrisburg, PA. Pleasantly surprised upon finding the location. The outside very nice &'presentable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room smelled and looked clean and pleasant. Very roomy in comparison to other rooms of similar hotels we've stayed in... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2015

An early morning doctor appointment and messy weather forecast convinced me to book a room and drive down the night before. Booked this hotel based on decent online reviews and $65 total price with tax. On the positive, the hotel is clean and conveniently located, the bed was comfortable (even though it didn't look it at first), wifi is fast... More
