We do like our Hampton Inns because they are usually very close to the highway exit. This was the case with this Inn in North Harrisburg. We could see it off in the distance in the night sky, but getting to it was another story entirely. When we were following directions into a quiet residential neighborhood, we were sure we were lost and turned around. We drove straight at the hotel through a gas station parking lot, but that took us to a dead end at a field. I stopped at the gas station to ask directions. The clerk laughed and told us to go back through the residential road and go up hill and turn left. Sure enough, there was the HI, next to another hotel and an office park. That must have been one interesting zoning meeting to get all of that built up there! The hotel is VERY close to the highway. The on ramp almost touches one corner of the parking lot. The desk manager was happy to get us a room, one of the last remaining, and we went up to the 4th floor.We did have an odd numbered room and it was very loud. A few times during the night I thought a truck was coming into our room. I would definitely request an even numbered room if you want to sleep peacefully. The breakfast room is incredibly large and was fully stocked at 7 AM. The large group of guests all had plenty of room and food to choose from, and the cheerful staff kept everything stocked and cleaned. By 7:30 we were finding our way back to the highway, with the help of daylight and we were heading for home. This is a very good hotel that just needs better signage and some noise cancelling glass in the rooms. Have fun!
Get a room with an even number for less noise!

Thank you for staying with us at the Hampton Inn and Suites Harrisburg North. We appreciate your comments as it offers us insight on the service and accommodations that we provide. Our location is conveniently located off of I-81 but you do travel through a residential neighborhood to get to our corporate/business park where we are located. We are glad that our staff kept the breakfast area stocked and clean with such a full house. We would welcome the opportunity for you to stay with us again when traveling through the area.
