“Great price and nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

Very clean and affordable hotel right on Riverwalk, close to downtown attractions. Outstanding service at the breakfast, and very friendly hotel staff, too. A bit confusing to enter the hotel parking lot, though.

Room Tip: If you want to be able to see the River, ask for a room with two beds on the second floor. The Rive...

The lobby, with it's cozy seating and chandelier, is deceptively elegant. The walls in my room were in poor condition with many scuffs, dried drips of who knows what, and even a couple unrepaired holes. The beds were old spring mattresses with no back support. If elevator access is important to you, that's not an option here. The hotel itself is in a nondescript part of town (although there is a nice view of the river behind the hotel). If I weren't looking for a Choice Hotel like Comfort Inn, I wouldn't have chosen this area for lodging. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly but I wouldn't choose to stay here again.

We are Elite members of Choice hotels so we stay at quite e few of their hotels. The room was clean and nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable. The hallway had some funky smell, it could use some new carpeting. The staff was very polite.

Great location! Next to a river and several picturesque bridges. (Not heavily trafficked). Ehab, the front desk guy was superb! It is so nice to meet 'People who give a darn!'. Really good Indian Restaurant 30 steps away!

Comfortable room. Nothing huge, but comfortable. I had to use the Inn as a resting point after leaving the Appalachian Trail due to being sick. It's a comfortable walk from downtown.

There is an Indian Restaurant on the property that looked pretty nice. It appeared to have a full service bar which is always a plus. In my condition, I didn't want to risk the spices, so I didn't try it unfortunately.

If you need a cheap option that's close to downtown and not gross then I would recommend the Comfort Inn. One very important point that should be noted: they do NOT have a shuttle to the airport. That's probably my biggest complaint.

My wife and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Riverfront on Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend.

We were a bit nervous because we usually try to stay in higher caliber places, but this Inn really was a great value. The room was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. The shower was new and really nice. The inn was along the river which is a great place to take a walk. The included breakfast was crowded but had a very solid selection.

We were on the first floor which meant we had a very close view of the parking lot and the highway...try to get a second floor river view room. Our main critique was the lack of things to do in Harrisburg itself. We needed to drive to Hershey which was 20 minutes away for pretty much everything.
