“Great Quiet Friendly Place”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We stayed there for Corvettes at Carlisle in August. This was our first time at this hotel and all I can say is that we rebooked for next year before we left. It was in the ideal location for all things that happen in Carlisle, was 100% clean, and you can't beat the free breakfast in the morning. There is also a small "bar" inside for a cold beer or drink. Excellent hotel and we're looking forward to next year's stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem to be good. We were on the street side and it was very quiet.

On route from Canada to Myrtle Beach we stayed at this Days Inn. It is close to Hershey but the price was much lower! Sarah at the front desk was very friendly. She took our room saver coupon with no difficulty. The room was spotless! Continental breakfast was very good! If your looking for a place to sleep on route this is the perfect spot! We decided to stay there again on the way home. All in all two great nights, in two spotless rooms! Would definetly stay here again on route! The nice thing is that it's right off the interstate! :)

The reviews I read about good management here are accurate. This place was the friendliest and cleanest motel in which we've stayed this year, if not for 'all time.' We paid exactly the same for a Days Inn in which we are tonight, and it's way below average. The only improvement I'd add to these Carlisle fairly small rooms is 1 or 2 luggage racks so we 'old folks' don't have to bend over our travel bags or keep moving them from bed to chair.

The hotel is right off the interstate and offers good value. The room was average to large size with good furniture: side table, a couple of chairs and a coffee table, and a good work desk with an office chair. Good lighting. Coffee maker and fridge in the room. Under-window heating unit worked well and put out a lot of heat when desired. The bed comfy with average linen and plenty of pillows. The bathroom smallish with average plumbing and a good exhaust fan. Towels of medium quality. Small bottles of shampoo etc as well as coffee for the coffee maker. Room and bathroom were clean. The hotel has a small bar. Breakfast with cereals, breads, waffles, and boiled eggs as well as juice, coffee and such. The internet is free and of decent speed (about 2 to 4 Mbps). The staff friendly and helpful.

At last room 109 was musty and moldy smelling. I thought maybe after I turned the AC on that it would be better. But as the night went it was worse. I have no ide why I continued to stay in this room. I ended up getting sick from allergies probably from the mold.

The Breakfast was real good, dining area was very nice. They have a small lounge in the hotel (very samll) but very cheerful attendants.

Room Tip: Hope they have fixed whatever made room 109 smell like mildew!

stopped here because we had a coupon from the rest area (which I recommend you get! It's cheaper than any other rate). while it was clean, it was very noisy (maybe thin walls?). It does have interior access only, which is a plus. There is a free breakfast which is mostly assorted breads and pastries. There is a waffle maker, but it was out of order the day we were there. There is also cold cereal and boiled eggs and sausage patties. Coffee service is available 24 hours a day. I didn't feel especially safe in the room itself as it still uses the old fashioned chain across the door (which I haven't seen in years). The bathrooms were clean.

I'd recommend this hotel for a quick stop-over but wouldn't stay here for any extended period of days.

Thank you for your feedback on our hotel. We pride ourselves on a clean and comfortable place to stay. I am sorry that you did not notice that we have two waffle irons and while one had new plates ordered the other iron was in working order. I know that safety is a concern but in addition to the chain there is a lockbolt on the door with a securtiy window. Please be assured that your comfort is most important to us. Thank you again for taking the time to review the hotel.

While I did not stay at this hotel, I spoke with my 89 year old dad and sister last night (Sept 5) when they were traveling on the PA Turnpike west of Carlisle. My family was driving home to Delaware, after stopping in Pittsburgh to see relatives, and found themselves at a complete standstill on the turnpike because of an accident. Having waiting for traffic to move for literally hours, they were tired as it was late in the evening. While speaking with them on the phone about staying overnight to get a fresh start in the morning, I checked tripadvisor, finding this Days Inn.

I contacted the Days Inn, speaking with the night clerk, and explained the situation. The night clerk permitted me to hold a room for my family's arrival, saying she'd take good care of them...which she did! In speaking with my sister after their stay, she said the staff could not do more for them. Additionally, the entire hotel was exceptionally clean, the beds very comfortable, the bath very clean, and every member of the staff was overwhelmingly friendly. The provided breakfast was the standard breakfast, however, everything was fresh and delicious.

My family had nothing but good things to say about their stay, stating further that if they every need a hotel in Carisle PA again, this Days Inn will be their choice.

Thank you, Days Inn, for everything!
