We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Harrisburg East quite by accident during our recent visit to Hersheypark and Chocolate World.
Our main purpose was to relax and sleep so we were looking for something affordable that accepted pets. After a dozen or so calls in the Chocolate World parking lot (with no reservation) we found this little gem. They only had a non-smoking room with a King bed and a sofa bed. When we arrived they first gave us a King Bed with no sofa bed. This was quickly corrected.
We paid $94 per night (during peak Summer season on a weekend night) with our AAA savings and the PA Room-Saver booklets that you can find at the PA Rest stops.
The King bed worked perfectly for three of us and the sofa bed was fine for our 2 older kids. The beds were very comfortable.
The TV was very dated (19" tube tv) and had a big green spot on the right side but the furniture is very modern to fit a flat screen TV (as shown in their brochure). I'm sure they will be replacing these TVs soon.
The bathroom was VERY modern clean and decorated.
This was the best "contintental" breakfast that I had in a long time with cheesy omelets, sausage, bacon, variety of toasts, yogurts, fruits, etc. Checkout could have been a bit better as I had to actually go to the office. Also there is only 1 elevator in this hotel which caused delays. I took the stairs most of the times.
This hotel is a short 15-20 minute drive to Hersheypark.
