“Nice hotel, Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn East, it was recently renovated and is a large property (huge pool, basketball court, tennis court, restaurant). The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly- most importantly the beds were super comfortable!! Our room was spacious and the hotel was quiet. Great place to stay in the area at a reasonable price. It's close to a lot of restaurants and right off the highway, only 15 minutes from Hershey park area. Would definitely recommend it.

The staff here - from Mick and colleagues at the front desk to Jose in maintenance to Mary at the hotel bar to the general manager (apologies for forgetting his name) - simplified the stay for this business traveler during a very busy weekend. Although the walls could use a little soundproofing the stay was otherwise very good.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony have an edge over the others, whose windows don't open

My family and I went to Hershey Park this past weekend and our usual hotel was booked so we ended up at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East. We were pleasantly surprised! Our room was very spacious, and clean. The beds were super comfortable! The hotel has two beautiful pool (indoor and outdoor), and a nice fitness room with floor to ceiling windows looking out towards the pool. The front desk staff was courteous and responsive. And, the hotel was a short, easy ride to the park. I would stay here again!

Best service I've ever had at a hotel! From the front desk staff to the bartender's and restaurant staff. Clean rooms and always extra coffee when I requested it to be left in my room.
The food here is 5 star. An added bonus was the Packer/Chicago game in the pub.
Many great bartenders but Mary was the BEST!

The hotel staff is very friendly. Lobby area is nice.carpets in hallways and rooms are dirty. The base of the toilet in my room was very disgusting with old urine pooed at the base between tub and toilet. Cleaning seems to be very superficial. Housekeeping leaves doors open and rooms unattended while cleaning, so there are some security issues potentially.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the noted cleanliness issues in your review. We are disappointed to learn of your experience and will address it with the housekeeping department. This is not our normal high level standards of cleanliness, and is completely unacceptable. I will also remind the team to make sure they never leave a room unattended with the door open.

Your feedback is very important to us, and serves as a reminder; we must continue to focus on how each room is prepared before it’s ready for an arriving guest.

Thank you

I went to the lounge for a sandwich, Mary B. was the waitress. She made me feel at home and was very courtious. Her service and customer skills are to be commended. This is my second trip to the Harrisburg area on business, I will stay here for all future trips.

I was here for work for the entire week and it was a very pleasant stay. The staff was friendly and accomodating and they even upgraded my room for free! I would recommend this place to any coworkers/friends who will be in the area as it is convenient to everything!! If I am in the area again I will definitely be staying here.
