This Lodge has External Doors which we prefer. This is common with Motels built about 70 years ago. We are Non-Smokers and had issues getting into without being exposed to smoke. However our Biggest problem was that after we checked out, the Manager Tanu, billed us an additional $50 and claimed that we smoked in our non-smoking room. This was... More

I had a rather last minute out of town job interview come up so my hotel choices were limited since this area is so close to Harrisburg. I booked 2 nights at this hotel. The room was reasonably clean but upon check-in I found what I hope was a cricket in the bathroom. (Feasible since all rooms are ground floor).... More

Nothing outstanding or bad. It's located in a small road so at first, I wasn't to sure if I was driving in the right direction. Didn't get to try the breakfast since we woke up late. Not too bad as a pit stop on a road trip.

If your goal is to find a decent place to sleep at a good price, then the Econo Lodge is a good pick. Rooms are clean and have been recently updated, but breakfasts are somewhat undesirable. (Cold strong coffee, store-bought day-old donuts, bagels, and water-downed orange juice)

We read the reviews before booking our stay for the Corvette events at Carlisle this Aug. 22nd to the 24th, 2014, thinking that the change in management would have improved the conditions of the place.

This has to be the most disgusting motel I have ever stayed in my life. Please do not be fooled by the pictures. The rooms look nothing like the pictures.

I don't expect a lot from this chain other than a clean room and decent bedding. Our room here was clean and the bedding was very comfortable. But it was lacking in what is the norm in even most Econo Lodges. There was no hair dryer in our room. It did have newer carpet and drapes, but the bed was... More
