I rely heavily on social media reviews when booking vacations and it seems that the Red Lion has mastered the art of manipulating their reviews and ratings. I booked this hotel based on what seemed like a beautiful outdoor pool (we never got there) and the fact that it is rated the #3 hotel in Harrisburg based on reviews on... More

We just got back from there from a 3 day trip to Hershey. Our room was nice!!! Has a lot of room and a nice balcony to look out over the out door pool. The pools need some major cleaning. The inside pool and hot tub need some work. The inside pool the ceiling was falling down and smelled like... More

We stayed here on a stop back to New England. We took the #3 rating on Trip Advisor as a good sign. Maybe we have different standards. The positive: The staff was great, knowledgeable, friendly and VERY helpful. The hotel itself looks great from the outside, convenient from the road etc. The negative: the first room had mold on the... More

I'm torn between leaving a bad review based on some of the issues we encountered and leaving a good review based on the staff. I'll try to land somewhere in the middle and leave an honest review. The good: * This is the self-proclaimed "friendliest hotel in the country" and they don't disappoint on that aspect. Everyone we encountered, from... More

This was a great hotel for the price. it is very close to a lot of attractions and the staff is very friendly. The Restaurant Seasons along with the bar have reasonable prices and the food is good. The pools are very clean and there's even tennis and a basketball court. The only complaint I have is the door locks... More

Friendly staff to greet you at check in. Was there for a conference. Formerly a Holiday Inn which I stayed in approximately six years ago. Many traits of the old Holiday Inn still exist, eight foot ceilings, long hallways, noisy a/c units. Food was average and catering staff was helpful. Hotel really needs a "facelift".
