Stayed here a couple of days while going to Hershey Park. About 15 minutes away from park. The staff was nice and the bed was comfortable. Free breakfast was good. Free Wi-Fi as well. The area is nice and quiet. Would stay here again.

The outside is a little industrial looking but the interior is nice. The Check in clerk was friendly and cheerfully honored a coupon I received at the Pennsylvania welcome center. The rooms are clean and it even had a clean refrigerator and microwave. I spent the day at Hershey Park on the 7th and got back to the room at... More

Our destination was Hershey Park - which is on the other side of Harrisburg from where the Mechanicsburg Comfort Inn is located. It was about a 20 minute drive each way back-and-forth for 3 days in a row for us. Hotels in Hershey or closer were 3-4 times more expensive, so if you are fine with the driving, consider this...

I booked this room this room because I planned a trip to Hershey Park for my kids. I saw that it received 4 stars so I didn't hesitate. However, when I arrived that day, it was a complete turn off! 1. The hotel was outdated and smelled like a basement 2. The smoking rooms were on the same floor as... More

Yes, we still have a few smoking rooms left in our hotel and sometimes I wish I did not. If we would have had a non-smoking room available at the time you booked the reservation online, it would have been listed. And we would have been able to move you arrived. I do not know who you booked your reservation... More

I would stay here again. It is clean enough. The breakfast is nice with many choices. The man working the breakfast buffet was really diligent. Hard working and kept the place clean. I'd give him a raise. My pet peeve with hotels is the check in. This time, I walk up and there are employees smoking outside the front door,... More

Older property, unattractive, small, frayed around the edges, not well physically maintained. Poorly located, not identifiable, hidden behind a McDonalds, difficult ingress and egress. Our room: Floor lamp behind chair not plugged in. Coffee maker on desk not plugged in. Desk chair torn. Mattress so soft and saggy, I thought I'd hit the floor when I laid down. Only 2... More

Room was showing a little wear and tear, but was clean and pleasant. Renovations are in process. Breakfast was adequate and the large breakfast area was perfect for the large group with which we were traveling.

Location is good. Facility is nice. However, housekeeping needs improvement. Coffee maker had not been cleaned when we checked in and was not cleaned any day during our 3 night stay. Coffee and cups were not replenished. Front desk clerk was apologetic when made aware but nothing more. Guests attending the nearby car shows in Carlisle will be disappointed that... More
