We value our guests’ comments, and have utilized your feedback, as well as the observations of other guests, to install new Wi-Fi access points throughout the hotel to ensure all of our guests are able to quickly, and easily connect to our hi-speed internet service. As of July 15, 2013, I am pleased to report that our internet access points have all been upgraded, and are providing reliable, quick internet service to our guests.

This hotel was a great value. The staff was super friendly. The facility was clean and well lit. The rooms, we had a double queen, were clean, comfortable, quiet a/c, mini fridge, micro, large tv. The room, more specifically the door, could use to be replaced as it looked as if someone recently hit it hard. Geographically, the location was perfect for Hershey Park or Gettysburg.

This hotel is lovely. Friendly staff. Clean Rooms. Great food and outstanding service. They went out of their way to make sure that I had everything I needed to make my stay successful. They accomodated our special group and treated us with the utmost respect and dignity.

My husband and I took my daughter and a friend to a concert at Hershey park in July. When we arrived the staff was very friendly. The lobby was beautiful! Our room was a double queen and very clean which I greatly appreciated! Had to ask housekeeping for another towel and they loaded us up on towels, wash cloths and soap! They were great! Had problems with the Wi-Fi going in and out but not a real problem. The fan in the bathroom was broken and the battery to operate the safe didn't work. When my husband notified the staff they comped us 2 free breakfasts in their restaurant. The hairdryer didn't work but called down and they brought a new one right up! Staff here was top notch! Overall our stay was very pleasant and would stay there again.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Staff is both friendly and professional and helpful. Very nicely decorated, and clean. Rooms were immaculate, bedding is comfortable, up to date wifi and tv, restaurant on site had good food. Direct quick route to Hershey Park and offers $12.00 off admission tickets.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and I was very impressed with all the staff we came into contact with. It didn’t matter if it was the front desk, housekeeping, custodian, or restaurant staff everyone was amazing. We stayed 4 days and I’m glad we ended up at this hotel. One special moment was when we returned from a day out to find our room all nice and clean. On my kids bed was there new stuffed animals they had received the day before at Hershey Park. The housekeepers went the extra mile and displayed them so nicely. It really made the kids day to come back and see that. Thank you so much for your hospitality and we will definitely keep this hotel in mind for future stays when we come to Harrisburg!

This was the first hotel we stayed at of our trip to PA. After a long drive we were blown away by lobby, it was very pretty and then we got the room and we were so surprised first by the size of the room, it was huge! and second there was a jacuzzi tub right in the room.

The price of the room was great, and if we hadnt had a strict itinerary we would have loved to stay longer!
