Our regular Inn next door was closed so we thought we'd try this out. We are snowbirds looking for clean, convenient, best value to stay overnight on our way south. This IS NOT THE PLACE. Very dated, towels are 'grey', linen and carpeting are...yuk and they charged us a $15 pet fee (although they advertise $10)...and the continental breakfast??? Walk... More

Very confusing. This hotel is near a popular destination, the Carlisle Fairgrounds, but the condition and services at the hotel indicates nobody every comes around so why bother cleaning up? Seriously, I have stayed at cleaner and nicer places after getting lost in the backwoods where nobody goes voluntarily! I have stayed at other hotels in this chain and this... More

If you're looking for a throwback to the beginnings of road travel, this place is nostalgic. Almost everything about this place is old except for the smart TV. Run down looking. Room door opens to parking lot, which I preferred in this case because I was traveling in my Corvette. No food on premises but John's Diner (formerly a Bob... More

Room was clean and well appointed. Bed was especially comfortable. Convenient location off the 81 but rt 11 is a major truck route so there is lots of traffic and noise. Fortunately, this motel is set back from the road so you can get a quiet room. We would use this motel again.

Check in was one of the fastest I've ever experienced. When I went to the room I parked my motorcycle right in front so I could keep an eye on it. The place felt safe and the room was clean, couldn't have asked for more

It's in a great location right off the expressway. The staff members are friendly. This motel is simply worn out like many in Carlisle. I would advise that you shop around and book a room with a higher rating in the area.

This is an average off the interstate (81) motel about 20 minutes south of Harrisburg. As a lower priced hotel,($59) it attracts allot of truck drivers, but they weren't noisy, and there weren't people hanging out in the parking lot, even though it was a warm night. The room was big enough, and clean, with a fridge and microwave. It... More
