“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

I'm pretty picky, but this hotel was clean and beautiful. I needed late night directions to Target for diaper emergency and staff was very helpful. Also, its in a great location - close to shopping and restaurants. The beds are over-rated though...

Dear beachlovers616,

Thanks for telling us of your good experience, at our Hilton Garden Inn Harrisburg East, recently. I will pass along your comments to our Team who really appreciate knowing their focus on guest satisfaction is noticed. Hilton Garden bedding has controls for hardness or a softer sleep experience.
On your next trip to our hotel please ask me, as I would like personally like to thank you for your business and share Pittsburgh stories, as I am from there also!

Warm regards,

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Stayed at this hotel with my family of 4 on the way to a Penn State Football Game in October 2012. Great location about 1/2 way between Phila and State College. Getting a room for less than $300 in State College is almost impossible. So I find this to be a very good alternative. Thje hotel room was clean, very friendly hotel staff with comfortable beds. The room was quite spacious (we ended up with a handicapped room which provided a lot of additional space). The room was very quiet/no street noise at all. Very convenient to Route 322 --- on the way to PSU. Although I didn't go there, it's located within about 1 mile from the Bass Pro Shop super store- which from the outside looked more like a mall then a store. Will definitely stay again on my next trip to PSU.

We stayed here because our usual Hampton inn was booked. Price was comparable and rooms were clean. breakfast was good and location was just as good. We usually come to the area once a month and we decided to book here again in November.

We usually stay at Hamptons but it has been a little more expensive than the Hilton Garden Inn in Harrisburg. This was our second or third time at this hotel and it was again mostly a positive experience. Check in was quick and easy and our room was waiting for us as requested.

The rooms are updated and seem very clean. Bathrooms are also very clean which is so important.
The next morning we ate breakfast for the first time here and it was pretty good as well. Order a hot breakfast then serve yourself from the cold bar. Could be a little cheaper but it is still cheaper than the closest Hampton, even after paying for breakfast.
Only problem with the hotel was that the AC unit made a lot of noise when it kicked on at night so we shut it off and just ran the fan so it did get a little too warm for us. Upon checkout, the staff was very apologetic and offered us a gift card for a local store because we were not totally satisfied so hats off to her.Will definitely go back next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: As always, ask for a room on an upper floor away from elevators. They seem to always be the quietest...

This was the designated hotel for concert volunteers. What a great choice. Very nice rooms complete with microwave and fridge and VERY comfortable beds with luxurious bedding. Hotel staff friendly and accomodating. Nice bar/ restaurant area in the beautiful lobby with good food, not too pricey. Coffee always available and station well stocked. Rooms very clean, nice flat screen TV, free wifi and 2 computers for use in the business center. Great hotel, would stay again.

Stayed here when we went to the Camping Expo @ Hershey Park. Great location!! We arrived on a Friday evening, (1st time visit). Very close to the mall, plenty of restaurants. We ate @ the hotel to try something different and it was really good. I was surprised for being Hotel Food. Someone next to us got the dessert, would not recommend that looked average. We had a King room, everyone was friendly, fresh cookies @ check in. Pool open until 10pm, Laundry available, did not use it. Right off I-83 Would stay here again!!

Room Tip: Beds were comfy!!

We had a party of six adults spanning 3 generations. We had two connecting rooms on the 4th floor. Hotel is close to I83 and near several restaurants. Clean, quiet, and well lit parking lot. Definitely a place I'll stay again.
