ECONO LODGE, WORMSLEYSBURG (PA181) | Rating: **1/2
860, North Front Street, Wormsleysburg, PA. Ph: (717) 763-7686
Stay: Two nights (August 29 and 30, 2012). Rate: $59.95 (average/night incl. tax). Room: 400.
LOCATION: Across the Susquehanna River from downtown Harrisburg. Fine if you have a vehicle, otherwise be prepared to do lots of walking or booking of taxis. The 'F' bus runs right past the hotel, but it only operates early morning and late afternoon. A bar is attached to the hotel, and hosts live bands on weekends. My trip did not coincide with weekend activities there so I don't know how loud the music gets or how rowdy the drinkers might become. During my stay at the hotel the bar was whisper quiet. Next door to the hotel you will find the Yankee Doodle Diner, a real throwback to the diners of the past. I ate there several times and found the meals cheap and the staff friendly.
FACILITIES: the hotel is showing signs of age, and could do do with a makeover. I was in room 400, close to reception. The room was more than adequate for one or two people, and everything worked as intended. The air con was loud, cold, and didn't seem to respond to adjustments in temperature - apart from off and on - but it did work. The WiFi reception was ok but had a tendency to drop out. The free breakfast barely qualified as complimentary. It consisted of lukewarm coffee, small muffins, cheap bread and jelly. Maybe the owners have given up and assumed that visitors would use the diner next door, just as I did.
RECOMMENDED: For traveling salesmen and workers on the road between jobs.
