“Great hotel for Hershey Park visitors; worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We needed a place to stay the night after a day at Hershey Park. The hotels in Hershey were ridiculously overpriced. We looked around for hotels in nearby towns. I'm so glad we did! We found this hotel for a good bit less than the hotels in Hershey. It was worth the drive. Residence Inn is one of my favorites in the Marriott chain. The vibe at Residence Inn is very down to earth without sacrificing Marriott's high level of service. Our room was a beautiful King room with a pull out couch. The standard kitchenette is always a nice feature in these rooms. I just wished we had more people with us to enjoy the trip.

The hotel was very quiet. I had a wonderful night's sleep after an exhausting day at Hershey Park.

The complimentary breakfast was wonderful. Loads of options. The staff was attentive and kept the food trays stocked.

Great stay. Great staff. No complaints (other than I wish that I had more people to share the experience with).

Useful information: 1) A mile from Route 81 and a mile from the PA Turnpike; 2) A double is about $150 per night plus tax; 3) All rooms are suites with kitchen and living room.

Marriott Residence Inn is a consistent brand that offers spacious clean suites and a good breakfast, The hotel is 4 miles north of Carlisle and close to the major highways. Rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. I stayed here in 2009, as well.

Minor annoyance: it took three phone calls to get a confirmation emailed to me. The price is steep for this location. Similar hotels in like areas are in the $109-$129 range.

I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. The staff is outstanding and extremely responsive. The rooms are large, well-designed, climate-controlled, and clean. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of storage space. The kitchen with full-size refrigerators in some rooms is a plus. They even reduced my rate (significantly) from the one I originally booked without me asking. When I had to leave suddenly for a family emergency at 10:00 pm, the front desk clerk did not charge for the night. Wow!!! If you come to stay in Carlisle, definitely choose this hotel.

You have to look for this hotel, but it is worth finding. We lucked out with free taco bar for happy hour and since I managed to have a broken leg, it worked out great. the dollar wine was a hit also.
Breakfast was a hit also. Room and bed was nice. No complaints.

I just checked out after three days of non-stop graduation events, including two lunches in their breakfast/lounge area. Everyone was SOOOOO accommodating - cleaning the grill for us to use, giving us plates when we ran out and the best was Seth going into the kitchen to search for more hamburger buns because we ran short. I was so pleasantly surprised by their desire to help us out, to go above and beyond what is "required" of a hotel. Seth and Emily (and really everybody) deserves big kudos!
I've stayed here once before and the rooms were nice, always clean and fresh and larger than most - having a kitchenette makes a big difference for a long weekend with lots of guests. One morning my room was cleaned while I was at breakfast (they noticed I was downstairs and got it cleaned up).
It's quiet (as long as our group isn't there), it's lovely, and the staff are some of the best I've ever seen at any hotel - ever.
Highly, highly, highly recommend.

Room Tip: It was nice having a little suite. It's a bit more expensive but I thought worth it. If you h...

Have stayed at Residence Inns across the country, this one did not disappoint. Great staff, clean rooms and nice extras like evening cookies and dinner features. Room was clean and well appointed. It was a bit pricier than other hotels but well worth it. For this price I expect great service and accommodations and they deliver it. I will stay here again.

If you have young children who go to bed early, this hotel is a dream come true! We stayed in a queen suite, and were able to put our toddlers to bed in a separate bedroom, while enjoying some wine in the living room after a long day of travel. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, with modern furnishings, the beds are comfortable, and they have Paul Mitchell toiletries. We thought the hotel was a great value, and we'll definitely be back!
