“Pet Friendly and Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

This was a nice place - I had a suite as I was traveling with my cat. The room was clean, free internet, decent TV selection, great breakfast selection. Quiet (my room was in the back). I would stay here again.

While my boyfriend is on job assignment I came to visit. The hotel is clean and inviting, the staff is super friendly. Visiting over the holiday weekend to go to Hershey park I expected it to be busy. I am fascinated at how many people come with their children for sports and let them run amok and create general havoc. We felt especially bad for the housekeeping staff as they were cleaning up the rooms from the out of control sports children and their (lack of parental control). The staff took this in stride and their outdoor pool was opened this weekend. Beautiful pool area, standard chairs and tables with brilliant blue umbrellas. I honestly cannot complain about anything. Thanks for a hassle free stay;)

While I understand the other reviewers points of view here is the real deal. We stayed 1 night over Memorial day weekend and went to Hershey park. That was enough. The King Suite is HUGE, but there is no separator, its one giant room. There is no privacy. It has a kitchen, large fridge, sink in a wet bar type setup but no plates, glasses nothing to make the space useful.

The carpeting is abysmal, dirty and dated. Not nearly enough lights in the room for a room this large and you couldn't open the drapes on the first floor for obvious reasons. The bathroom door couldn't open all the way because of the way the curved shower rod was installed. The hallways and the entire place accept for the front facade needs to be overhauled.

For one night it was fine but we couldn't get out of the room fast enough for fear of some sort of virus or disease. Low and behold two days later my 2 yr old has puss coming out of her eyes.

The breakfast was chaos, no one to keep the peace, no guide lines to help keep things flowing. The lady assigned to fill up what was consumed is handicapped with a crutch, this made things very hard on her trying to fight through a bunch of self absorbed knuckleheads who could barely work the waffle iron, FYI it's a waffle iron not a toaster.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor but there is no elevator so you have to drag luggage up the stairs.

I stayed here for 2 nights last week and thought this was a great hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. There was a mini fridge and microwave. The breakfast was pretty typical for a hotel's hot breakfast, but I have no complaints about it except there is no elevator to get to the second floor. I will be back if if need to stay in that area again!

We don't usually stop in PA on our way to Florida but due to the horrible traffic on Rt. 81 we gave up and pulled into the Comfort Inn. Two wonderful girls at the front desk treated us to homemade cupcakes when we told them of our horrific ride (traffic was at a standstill most of the time). They gave us a great room rate and we got adjoining rooms, one king, one w/2 queens. Kids really enjoyed the rooms and their ability to go back and forth. Breakfast the next morning was more than adequate even though the juice dispenser was broken.

I traveled to Harrisburg in March for a large dog show. Wasn't sure what to expect, but this hotel did a great job. I was greeted at the desk by Stephanie who was friendly and professional. They had exactly the type of room I asked for. More important they had made the extra effort to make my dog feel welcome, with a special yard area. They even moved their free breakfast start time up to accommodate those of us who had to be at the show site early.
I couldn't have been more pleased and if I ever go back to the area, this will be the hotel I choose.

Stayed here while visiting the are for business. All the staff was courteous and helpful. Shawn helped me load a heavy and bulky shipping container into my rental car and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The breakfast was good and plentiful. Worthy place to stay
