We were passing through Harrisburg in transit, so tried our luck on Priceline and landed here. I likely wouldn't have chosen it otherwise. The neighborhood was a little sketchy. We arrived late (11ish), parked on the street overnight and I was relieved in the AM that our packed-to-the-brim car didn't have a broken window and and empty hatchback. Our room looked onto a very depressing apartment building and construction site.
The rooms are relatively attractive -- I think the entire Holiday Inn chain is upgrading interiors. Beds comfortable, good wifi, ample outlets. Bathrooms are just OK -- nice fixtures and countertops, but limited counter space and storage. Towels soft. Amenities so-so.
Front desk staff very friendly at check in and departure. One frustrating note: the hotel's request that I pay an upcharge of $50 for a room with two doubles rather than a queen -- even though the posted rate for either room was identical. The desk staff said it was Priceline policy, Priceline denied it. Who knows?
