“One of the nicer Holiday Inns in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

I stayed here for a business event and was pleased at what I saw. The exercise room is a bit lacking but they have room to add more equipment and hopefully will do so. It's a bit of a hike from spot to spot, but then that makes up for the exercise room. It is close to some really great restaurants which is a real plus for those who prefer not to eat in a hotel.

Room Tip: It's pretty spread out so take your pick.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay with us. We are looking to add more equipment in our exercise room, but have yet to finalize the capital purchase. Our convenient location to various restaurants does provide an alternative should you decide to dine out.

We appreciate your business and hope to have the opportunity to accommodate you again in the future.

I've stayed at this property several times and have enjoyed it. I have two small children and they have a lot of fun in the pool. The Service was excellent and the lady that checked me in was very helpful.

We were upgraded to a gorgeous two room suite, that even thou it was winter still had a great view of the outside. My family and i use this hotel to get away once every few months.--


Also the Children Eat Free in the Resturant is great too!-- AKW

Room Tip: Ask if they have an upgrade available-- it doesnt hurt to ask!

As others noted, this is a huge hotel, is it but older and starting to show its age. The staff does an excellent job of keeping it up, but it is starting to look a little scruffy, at least on the wing I was staying on. Still, it is more than fine for a stop- over going in or out of the airport, or on an overnight road trip. There is a huge pool and large playground which will be a winner with kids trapped in the car all day, and a decent sized indoor pool for colder months. I had dinner in the lobby bar and the chicken sandwich was excellent, but the wine choices were definitely bottom shelf. This is an old style road warrior Holiday Inn, but the staff makes it inviting and I will definitely stay here again.

I loved that the rooms were so clean and the fromt desk supervisor Corrine Davis was so nice. She made sure that my stay there was very comfortable. I will always use Holiday Day Inn again!

We stayed here before flying out of Harrisburg International. It was conveniently located (try the Capitol Diner down the road for breakfast) and quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Be prepared to walk a long distance to get to your room; the hotel is large and very spread out. Only complaint is that some t.v. stations were not available as indicated.

Thank you for providing us with feedback regarding your recent stay. On December 21st, we started our upgrade to HDTV throughout the entire hotel and experienced the loss of some channels during the initial phase of the upgrade. The technicians have since resolved the problem and we now have all our channels up and running in HD. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and hope to have you back as our guest in the future.

Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us.

Well, Unfortunately I got stuck in Harrisburg, but all of the staff of this great hotel, made my stay wery nice. Always smiling which will cheer any grump, even if they don't want to.
Restaurant filled with tasty food and again professional staff.
And of course bartender ( Mary B.) was just a treasure. Because of her I drove back extra 80 miles today to stay here at Harrisburg holiday Inn. My first visit was the bar where believe it or not was Mary again and she put my favorite drink front of me....she remembered what I like...
This is what I call a great stay!
