Hotel is fairly nice older full service hotel. The pool was great. The room was nice and spacious. On the third and final night we found ants near the refrigerator area... Near a semi opened package of cereal. Also bathroom door would not close completely. Front desk seemed concerned when we checked out. Decent value for area.

Check in was smooth and easy. David, front desk, was especially friendly and knowledgeable. There were no questions he could not answer, and he knew me by name, first and last, the next time I walked by the front desk. The room was large and very clean and well stocked with supplies. I had no reason to contact the front... More

BW is an upscale hotel that makes a stay lovely. We needed a suite and it was perfect as was the price. I would say it was a perfect place to stay for a family. The cost was far less than 2 separate rooms. The indoor pool would be a bonus for a rainy day with the kids.

Recently stayed at this hotel for the ITC (International Thunderbird Club) Convention September 6th to the 11th, 2016. Upon check in was told we would be in Room 147. It was a very clean room. Stayed in this room the first night and the noise of the traffic kept me awake from 3AM. In the morning went to desk and... More

Overall a very nice hotel. My HS reunion was being held here so staying here was very convenient. I found the staff to be very cordial and efficient. We had a buffet dinner for our Saturday event. The buffet was excellent. I was expecting the usual of "ok" but it was way beyond that. The rooms are very nice and... More

The young lady at the front desk was very sweet and quickly checked us in. Upgraded our room without hesitation. The room was clean and had extra towels!! O'Riley's Irish Pub was very good. The bartender offered recommendations on the dark beer selection and was spot on. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here with family while attending the local RV Show and it has been an excellent experience. We decided on here because my brother and dad have several small dogs we were traveling with. Very dog friendly! Everyone had dogs so even if yours bark a bit no one seems to mind, we all just laughed and talked about... More

It was a great stay from beginning to end. The front desk won the heart of my daughter with a Hershey bar upon check in. All the staff were extremely helpful with any question or request.

I reserved at this hotel in early September 2016 because of what it offered. Though a bit farther away from the airport, the price was definitely reasonable. Why I decided on this hotel was that it offered a free shuttle to and from the airport and it would allow my car to remain on the premises until my return in... More

Super large heated indoor pool, excellent Irish Pub, strongly recommend the pot roast. Fantastic beer selection. Comfortable lobby to conduct private business. Although the usual free BW breakfast was missing, the property offers a super buffet with a wide selection of breakfast offerings. If you are considering Hershey or Harrisburg this is the hotel for maximum comfort. The surrounding area... More
