“Would be excellent if the room had HD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Harrisburg. The rooms are very nice, the staff is both friendly and helpful and the food very good.....especially the breakfast. If the room had HD programming I would have given it an "excellent."

This was a peaceful stay, quiet rooms, comfortable beds. Very nice accommodations. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Restaurant staff waited on us quickly, food was good. Full hot breakfast made to order. We were very happy and would definitely stay here again if required to be in Harrisburg

My experience in this hotel was great. It is quit and location is good. The surrounding area has great eating establishments and relax outside with a cup of coffee. Cons - traffic on the near major interstate. If you are heading on business 20-30 minutes away, I suggest leaving the hotel approximately 15 minutes earlier than you originated plan. The gym is a little small but good to get in a good workout. Otherwise, it is a good hotel.

Room Tip: Plan your road trip to get to your location on good time; traffic on the major interstates can get p...

Dear Laus Deo,

A big Thanks for your business and Trip Advisor post. We are so happy that your stay was enjoyable. We just finished our lobby improvements in September and in March are replacing all LCD Tv's with new HD 42 " TV's with HD content. Certainly at times traffic can add to travel time. I must say though my 8 miles to work in Harrisburg daily at rush hour is at most 20-25 minutes verses the 45-60 minutes in Pittsburgh I used to travel.

We hope to see you when you travel back East!!

The service at the front desk was very friendly and efficient; the hotel lobby very pleasant and homey. The beds were definitely a 'cut above', although mine wouldn't get quite soft enough, but slept well. The only complaint was the infernally slow drain in the lavatory.

This hotel has 24 hour airport shuttle service as well as lets you leave your car there while vacationing. It is only a 15 minute ride to the airport. The room was clean and the staff was nice. We would stay here again.

Dear Dawn L,

We appreciate your business and the Trip Advisor post. Our hotel does have a good location just 15 minutes from the airport, Harrisburg and the Hershey attractions. We do accommodate many "park & rides" to the airport with our free shuttle for hotel guests.
Please come back on your next fly -out!!

My family stayed here for 1 night. The hotel gives a lot for a reasonable amount of money. It is only 15 minutes from Hershey Park which wasn't a problem for us. The room was clean, a decent size, the check in staff was very friendly. I have had issues with other hotel chains, but Hilton has always stood behind there product so I continue to give them my business. I will definitely be staying in this hotel again. It even has a bar and limited room service for a nice price. A good deal all around.

Dear Barbara V,

A big Thanks for your business and Trip Advisor post. We are so happy that your stay was enjoyable at our Hilton Garden Inn Harrisburg East. We do attract many loyal guests due the ease and short drive to Hershey attractions. Keep in mind one can also “hub & spoke” to the Lancaster & Gettysburg attractions as well with excellent highway access and a 50 minute drive.
Our restaurant is a cut above the stereotyped hotel encounter. We make sure our selection and price point is also appealing to families and children. We even make Pizza from scratch and have a children’s menu. Steaks, pasta, salads and sandwiches round out our offering. Our chef is working on new items for this coming season.
We hope to see you back!!

I stayed at this hotel about a month ago. I just have not had the time to write my review. There was a mouse in my room! I spoke to someone at the front desk then Bill (the manager) came out. He was very rude with a condescending tone. I was very upset and a bit panicked and I felt like he was making fun of me. I was so upset...even more upset than when I saw the mouse. Thankfully the girl at the front desk her name is jashnia was very nice and understanding and managed to calm me down a bit. They did refund my room but I will never stay here again.

Dear Travoltanation,

We certainly regret and apologize for the experience you described. As the person who spoke with you, I also regret that you perceived my personal response as anything less than genuine. It was intended to show concern and apply the appropriate response for the value of your room. We provided a full refund.
We take all guest comments seriously and immediately respond to any life safety or health concerns. Two managers and our pest control company found no evidence of any presence in your room. We do have routine-repetitive pest control program contracted with an experienced and licensed vendor that keeps our hotel free of these outside pests.

Let’s move forward and look at our experience as a misunderstanding and I invite you for a return visit. Our hotel has many great team members such as Jeshanah and several excellent customer experiences posted to this site. We hope to see you in the future.

Warm regards,
