4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Well worth the money. It was cheap and clean. No problems and it is in a nice location close to all the hershey attractions. We will be regulars here. Newly remodeled also. The staff were accommodating to our needs and everything was wonderful.

If you are looking for a room to stay in a nice safe and clean motel - this is the place for you. It was half the cost of any other place and was cleaner than I have ever seen a hotel before. The room we were in had recently been renovated and the colors and fixtures in the bathroom were brand new. There is no pool, fitness room or even shampoo in the bath but we don't use those when traveling anyway. The man at the desk was great - rushed right out to help my husband find a place to park our rig (we were towing a trailer) and couldn't have been nicer. They do have juice and coffee in the morning but Waffle house/McDonalds are both within walking distance. It is my new favorite Harrisburg hotel

Room Tip: Half the price of any other reasonably priced hotel - really - exactly half!

On a trip from VA to upstate NY my date and I stayed here...

The man at the Front desk was WONDERFUL... meant to check his name so I could give him props on here, but then didn't... (sorry!)....

Everything was very clean, and seemed well maintained, although well worn... sheets were a bit thread-bare and there was no fitted sheet on bed... bottom sheet was a top sheet folded over... But mattress was comfy, as were the pillows, and the towels were surprisingly plush and soft.

This Motel 6 was much nicer than other Motel 6's I've stayed in... despite the threadbare sheets and slightly rusting bathroom fixtures, everything was very clean, the staff was incredibly friendly, and I would stay here again without a doubt!!! A great deal for the price!! Very affordable!

Room Tip: Smoking rooms avail on 3rd floor. Great if you're a smoker (which I am)... but I would recommend...

We needed a place to stay in the middle of a long road trip. All the area hotels were either fully booked or very expensive. It was midnight and we just needed a place to sleep for a few hours. Boy did we get lucky with this one. We were given a king suite which had a separate living area, bedroom, spotless bathroom, 2 TVs, and great free wifi for $84.

Always a little leary I carefully checked the bed linens. Spotless.
Our entire room was very clean.

Staff at the front desk were friendly. Hot coffee was available in the morning.
What more could we ask for!

Me and my children 2 adults two kids stayed here to visit Hershey Park The distance to parks from the hotel and all major food chains amusement is great. The front desk man was nice and helped when we asked questions. The Room on the other hand was not good the 1st room had dog hair it was a horrible smell like mold and the fire alarm detector was under the bed , We advised the front desk and they changed the room prompt but at the same time told me this would be the last room ???? like i was playing skip to my lou with rooms the next room was ok but the comforters were ripped the ac cut of ofton it was just not good quality. The price was good but there was not breakfast either just coffee and orange juice its best to stay somewhere else

I recently spent one night here. It's very convenient to get on/off of the highway. The front desk staff was great. I checked in at 3am and without asking they put me down for a late checkout so i could get a decent nights rest. This place isn't fancy but it is clean (the carpets like most hotels could use a cleaning). The bed wasn't anything special but was comfortable and the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The room was showing its age (some rusting around the fixtures in the bathroom). I would try to avoid a room on the 3rd floor if you don't like the smell of smoke. While i believe that the hotel is smoke-free the 3rd floor smelt of old smoke. The room also smelt musty.

Room Tip: avoid the 3rd floor if you don't like the smell of old smoke

Updated, clean, quiet, comfy beds with soft sheets. Microwave and fridge in the room were clean. We checked in very late, the attendant was friendly and cheerful. We were 2 female travelers and felt safe. Not fancy but the price is right and if all you need is a good night's sleep, this place will do very well.
