“Successful Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

Just got the reviews back from the May 14th weekend and it's looks like another successful weekend getaway at the Holiday Inn East. Aside from promoting very large groups there in the winter, we also run a few smaller trips each year where groups can just getaway and enjoy the fine amenities and excellent services the property has to offer. They love it. And be sure to order crab cakes when you are there. They're the best outside of Baltimore!

Gross. Found an old sandwich under the bed. Afraid to walk barefoot on the filthy carpet. They promised to assign rooms nearby to all of the guests in our wedding group, but we were scattered all over this ridiculously rambling hotel. Ceilings are low, walls are dirty, and the rooms, though large, are poorly configured. We didn't have a safe in our room, and there were no safe deposit boxes available, so they dropped a safe in our closet. Only problem was, the safe weighed about 10 pounds and wasn't bolted in. Safe? Really? Banquet food at the on-site wedding was inedible. Choose someplace else for your event.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback regarding your recent experience at our hotel. On behalf of the entire team at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East, I would like to apologize for your overall impression of our property. I can assure you that we are committed to providing each guest with the highest level of service and value. We sincerely regret we fell short of our goal in this instance. We cannot change the physical layout of our property, but I will make it an absolute priority to be more involved with the room assignments for wedding blocks in the future, and will discuss the cleanliness concerns with the appropriate department. Your willingness to share your experience with us is genuinely appreciated and will go a long way towards a wonderful experience at our hotel, which is our ultimate goal.

If you are not a swimmer, then don't ask for a room with a view of the pool; however, it is beautiful to look at.

We live in the area and we have been to many good restaurants. If you are looking for quality and quantity in a Sunday Buffet Brunch, as well as value and variety, this is one dining experience not to be missed. This event is held in the ballroom, not the regular dining room. Enjoy made-to-order omelets, fresh waffles, and carved meat selections like prime rib, ham and turkey. Seafood abounds at another food station that includes peel 'n eat shrimp, mussels, oysters, and steamed clams. Wander inside and choose from sumptuous foods such as Eggs Benedict, sausage, bacon, cheese assortments, more entrees like chicken parmesan, potato varieties, rice, salads, vegetables and sliced fresh fruits. If you love desserts, you will enjoy their dessert station complete with varieties of cakes, pies, and even puffed pastries. If ice cream is your choice, they offer at least three different flavors of hand dipped ice cream complete with your choice of sauces and toppings. Drinks included juice, iced tea, milk or coffee. Wait staff is attentive. Price: Under $20. Reservations are suggested.
