Reviewed April 9, 2013

This hotel was a real WOW. We expected a lower quality but when we entered the lobby and the room we were delighted that we had chosen this hotel for our overnight stay. The hotel is very new and the decor of the room was very impressive, sutle and warm - our first stop on a long trip and it really set our standards high for any hotel that we stayed at afterwards. Well situated right off the Interstate 81. A must for all travellers who do not want to go inside the cities so that they can get up and go the next morning without facing all the city traffic.

Room Tip: It was quiet and we could not ask for anything more than that.

After driving over 9 hours on our way back to Canada from Myrtle Beach, we found this new
Holiday Inn Express to be wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed the clean room which was nicely decorated.
Only drawback was the tiny vanity and wash basin area.
Overall, very relaxing afer a long drive.
Many thanks to Management.

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.
