“Great hotel, despite the location, and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

The only downside of this hotel is the location (some on this site have described it as being in the middle of nowhere, which, as someone unfamiliar with Harrisburg, I`d have to agree with). The service was great, we were upgraded to a jacuzzi suite at check in, the lobby and room were decorated nicely, and the room was spacious and clean. If you are driving, this is definitely a hotel to consider. I`d recommend it to anyone going to or through the Harrisburg area.

If this is the way Holiday Inn Express is going to update its rooms, business travels will love the design. The work area is tailored for laptop users, with a serviceable office chair, and an additional small laptop table. Complete with microwave and refrigerator. At first, I thought this was a new hotel, but clearly, it is not and the makeover has been tastefully done.

This property appears to be brand new. The room was styled in a contemporary theme with lots of lights (loved the ones above the headboards for reading late at night without disturbing others in the room). The beds were comfortable, and having a sink outside of the bathroom (as well as a fridge) was especially convenient. Although it is situated across from a truck stop, the room was very quiet - no outside noise evident. As for places to eat, I didn't feel this was a problem. We headed back one exit on the interstate (less than 10 minutes and we actually took the local Allentown Road instead of I-81) to eat at Red Robin. There were several options in the same general area, as well. Staying here was a good choice on our part and I would definitely book here again.

We stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to Hershey park. The hotel and room was great. Very comfortable beds and nicely decorated. Also, the rooms are large so there was plenty of space for two adults and two toddlers to run around. I would stay here again. Hershey park was about a 10-15 minute drive down the road.

I agree that this is an updated version of the Holiday Inn Express chain with comfortable beds, quiet and clean rooms and the usual breakfast offerings. The only issue we had was that, after driving all day, we had to get back in our car and drive for 15 minutes to get to any restaurants that serve anything other than pancakes. This seems like a strange location for a Holiday Inn, with a truck stop and trucking companies the only businesses nearby.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our Hotel. We are happy that you enjoyed our beds and newly renovated rooms. I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our location in regard to restaurant accommodation. There is a new family restaurant that has opened up only 1 mile from our Hotel. This restaurant does offer a wide variety of items. I do apologize if this was not communicated to you. We do hope to see you again soon!

This hotel looked brand new to us but we have no idea if it is. The location was really nice, not in the city but not far and very quiet and serene. The rooms are large and well furnished with ample lights over the bed and finally a hotel with bedside outlets so we could plug up both of our phones. There was a lot of counter space and a pull out table to eat on and two arm chairs, the tv was high up on the wall so lying in bed and watching tv was nicer. The fridge was great it was roomy and had a separate freezer. It is better than your average HIE. The pool was very nice but freezing and the hot tub was hot but the jets were not working properly at the time. We used the laundry room and the wash was fine but the dryer broke and we couldn't dry, hope they fixed those two minor problems, this hotel gets an A+ from us.

Stayed here for two night last week. I was impressed with how clean and well taken care of the hotel was. Rooms are large and modern. Decent amount of choices for breakfast (though I was hoping for a pancake machine but they didn't have one) Hotel has a large business center, pool and fitness center. A+ service and accommodations!
