My husband and I stayed here on January 14, 2012. We were attending the PA Farm Show and this hotel is about a 20 minute drive away. I have stayed at Sleep Inns before but this is the nicest one I have visited. It is still very new; the lady at the front desk told us in April 2010 they celebrated their first year. The rooms are large, comfortable and immaculate. The furniture is a dark brown, looks like Danish modern, and the walls are painted a sage green color and white, with some black and white pictures. The halls are darker colors but warm. It is a very modern looking hotel. The key card was interesting--instead of putting your card in a slot, you touched it to the door and the door unlocked. I liked that. There was a large flat screen TV attached to the wall. Everything worked fine; I found the beds comfortable and the room quiet. We were on the 4th floor (the top floor) and did not hear anyone around us. The front desk staff was friendly. We did not interact with anyone else so can't comment on the other staff. There are cookies available when you check in, although when we got there in the evening, there were only a few left and not the kind I liked, so I passed on the cookies. My husband ate one though and said it was good. Breakfast was the usual fare for hotels of this caliber--waffles, juice, coffee, instant cereal, fruit, danish and they did have some sort of eggs and sausage, but I will admit, this did not look very good (the eggs were round and flat and the sausage just didn't look well done), so I passed on that, but the waffle and cereal were OK, and my husband enjoyed the danish and fruit. It is convenient to a Bob Evans and a diner, so if you want a good meal, you will not have far to drive (but you have to drive, little too far to walk and no sidewalk). The room had the assorted toiletries and hair dryer and ironing board in the closet. The alarm clock on the nightstand had a night light on it, which was kind of nice so if you had to get up in the middle of the night, you would be able to see a little something, although (this may sound strange), the lighting by each nightstand (we had two queen beds) were different--they were not the usual style lamps and the reflection of them from the night light on the ceiling looked like two alien heads on the ceiling...strange. Young kids might not like that. Overall, it was a nice place to stay and we got a decent night's sleep. The only reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is the price. I really think that $75 (this was the AARP price and also AAA price) is just too high for that area, because there are many motels and hotels in the surrounding area, and most of them were lower in price. We did choose this because we were pleased with Sleep Inn in the past (see my review on the one in Frederick, MD) and it had good reviews on Trip Advisor so I knew it would be clean and neat and safe, and these days, you always want an immaculate room--and no bugs! Believe me, this place was clean! So, perhaps a few dollars more is worth it, plus we did save about $15 more on eating breakfast there because we did not have to eat out, yet, I would like to see the price lowered for this lodging to make it more competitive with surrounding hotels. I would definitely stay there again, but then again, might seek out a little lower cost lodging in the future when we return to Harrisburg.
