“much better than i thought”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

When i was searching for a hotel for the new years, i was surprised to see a comfort inn that looked so great! we celebrated new years here/hershey world. It is about a 5 minute drive away, and you can get tickets from the giant supermarket for hershey world. The continental hot breakfast was much more than expected, eggs, biscuits w/gravy, sausages, bacon, waffles maker, bagels, toast, muffins, fruit, cereal, etc The rooms were nicely arranged and clean! the thing that i didnt care for was this is a pet friendly hotel, which i didnt realize, so you can be neighbors with a barking dog.. Also for some reason it was extremely dry in our room, especially at night! so bad that i went and bought a humidifier! you needed the heat because it was so cold, but it was a blow heater and that may have been the reason why. Other than than that it was a pleasant experience.

Very convenient location. EZ highway access to go Downtown, Hershey Park, Farm Show etc. Best return on your spending.- Seems like, this hotel just upgraded, and values are added. To me, its a best available product in this area, for good night stay

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

On December 26 we were traveling from Rockville Md to our home in Vestal, NY when the weather got so bad that we could not continue. Snow everywhere and occasional freezing rain made it prudent for use to postpone our trip home and stay at the nearest motel.

We were right by the Comfort Inn, so decided to stay there.

The room was clean, large, with in-room internet. Lots of hot water for a shower to warm us up, and very comfortable beds. The young lady at the front desk was helpful and efficient as she checked in a bunch of us travelers who decided to not-continue due to the storm.

Breakfast was typical "motel breakfast"; however, the scrambled eggs were a tasty delight that exceeded my expectations for prepared food.

I am downgrading the hotel by one star since the tub drain was partially clogged causing the tub to fill up as we took our showers. They need to have their maintenance people check little things like this....not an earthshaking issue, but, an annoyance.

I was really pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I hadn't been to a Comfort Inn in quite a while and booked this at the last minute, when we had to get into town a day early due to a pending snowstorm. Very clean and well appointed, friendly staff. For the price I paid for rooms, it was an excellent value. If it wasn't quite so far from the attractions at Hershey, I would probably return. If you're going to Harrisburg though, I think it would be a good choice.

This place was very clean and the people were very nice. We ended up getting a suite since we booked early, so we had a great weekend in our suite that had a office in it. Both of those rooms were good sized and were clean when we came in. They both had flat screne TV's and it was great for watching football after an evening at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane. The one thing that we disliked was that they didn't have ABCFamily and the TV didn't have many channels except for local news channels and main news channels and ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNEWS, but hey we weren't there long enough to spend a good bit of time watching TV so it wasn't too bad. All and all the place is perfect and we will be back. Oh, one more thing they have free WiFi with high speed internet.

The room was very nice, big and comfortable. The negative thing was that during hurricane sandy the light went off and they didn't have torches for the guests. They should have bought them for all the rooms.

We went to Hershey this weekend for an event, and stayed at the Comfort Inn in Harrisburg, which was about ten miles from Hershey. The hotel was nice and the room was very clean. I had requested two rooms side by side on my reservation through the internet, and I called the hotel to check on this two days before we left. I asked for the first floor for my two rooms, and one of mine was a king and the other was two queens. Nicole said she didn't have these rooms available side by side, so she gave me a king suite for the same price, and the other room was two doors away. This was so kind of her and I wanted to mention her name, as she was so sweet when talking to her on the phone. Our room was great. The king bedroom area was larger than most, and then we had a separate room with a tv, sofa, end and coffee tables and a computer table and chair. What a nice treat it was. The breakfast was very good, fresh, and nicely laid out. Parking was close to the exit doors, and many restaurants were in the area. A nice place to stay, but the bathrooms were somewhat small. Would definitely stay here again.
