The hotel was clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly. My only complaint was the restaurant. We repeatedly had meals come that were not what we ordered. The food was good. It was a business function and everything was well done and orderly.

Wonderful value for a Saturday night and the bar/lounge was great! Great service from the male bartenders. The music, the atmosphere, the food (we had bangers and mash with green beans) were all wonderful! We will be back again soon

As far as I knew there was plenty of free parking. They had a few lots.

How far to Carlisle fair grounds
It’s about a half hour from the hotel. Use I-83 North to I-81 South to Exit 52. Use US Route 11 South for about 6 miles. You’ll see signs for the fairgrounds when you get closer to the downtown area of Carlisle
