“Nice property located just outside of Harrisburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Stopped overnight on a two day road trip. Have stayed here before and liked the property, so chose to stay again. Nice lobby with very friendly staff. Had a king bed room. Walking in, the bathroom is first, with the head of the bed backing up to the wall where the shower is located. Near the foot of the bed is a sofa, desk, tv. The layout is very convenient, since I sleep while hubby watches tv, and it can be turned so as to minimize light. There is a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Ask for a room on the side away from the highway. There is a pool, but did not use it. No free breakfast available, but you can purchase breakfast. Many restaurants just down the road, but nothing walkable. Can be hard to locate if heading south on route 15.

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side, away from the main road.

We stayed here for 2 nights during a visit to Roundtop Mountain Resort. The hotel was very clean, nice lobby with a fireplace, and in a great location if you are skiing (although off the beaten path). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was great for the kids too.

Only suggestion (can't really say complaint) is that breakfast was not up to par with other Courtyards we've stayed at. And it also seemed expensive, especially since it is usually free. But there is a microwave and fridge, so we ate in our room the second morning.

Thank you SJgirlNJ for your feedback about the hotel. Glad to hear that you had an awesome time at the hotel while visiting with one of our partners, Ski Roundtop.

I know that there is sometimes confusion over which brands that offer a complimentary breakfast and which ones do not. Courtyard unfortunately does not offer a complimentary breakfast however we do offer packages that include breakfast.

Again, thank you for choosing to stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Harrisburg West / Mechanicsburg. Look forward to seeing you again on a future trip to the area.

We stayed here over the weekend while visiting one of the local ski resorts. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The staff was really friendly and helpful and even recommended places where we could order food. I was a little apprehensive about booking this hotel because some of the reviews mentioned the traffic noise. To be honest we didn't even notice and our room faced the highway. I would definitely stay here again!

This may have been the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. Great job. Room was nice and spacious. The woman that checked me in was very friendly. There is a McDonalds and a Unimart convenience store about a 1/4 of a mile away. I did not have the breakfast but did enjoy the free coffee in the lobby. Would stay here again for sure.

The reception is usually quick and the staff is attentive - often making sure everything is okay with the room and also accommodating additional requests. I would recommend this location - nice and clean at a good price plus it is close and easily accessible

We've stayed at a couple of places in the area and this one is by far the truest to it star rating. We booked with other "3 star" hotels in the area that were no where near a 3 star rating! The rooms here are clean (odorless), the rugs aren't stained, the bathrooms are in great condition and the customer service is wonderful. I would recommend this hotel and this hotel ONLY, to any friends or family ever staying in this area.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend swim meet at nearby Cumberland Valley High School. It was immaculate! We travel for many overnight and weekend meets during the year and truly, we had the most comfortable night's sleep ever! Beds and pillows were exceptionally comfortable and we could not get over how quiet it was. The ventilation system is incredibly quiet. One side of the hotel does face the highway but I requested the opposite side and experienced no road noise. There is not a lot near the hotel so I would not recommend it as a place to "sight see" but it is awesome if you have a destination purpose nearby. We will always stay here when our travels take us back to Cumberland Valley for a swim meet!

Room Tip: Back side of hotel away from the highway noise.
