Hampton Inn Harrisburg East (Hershey Area)

Reviewed July 31, 2013

I have stayed at Hampton hotels for years and are rarely disappointed. This particular property had a clean, comfortable room and all the amenities you'd expect from a mid-tier hotel. Check-in was easy and problem free. Hotel is about 20 minutes away from Hershey Park which is not bad. Breakfast is good with a wide variety of hot and cold food but it gets very crowded especially waiting for the waffle machine on a weekend. Other than that I had no complaints and would recommend this hotel.

Dear John D,

Thank you for choosing our Hampton while visiting the Harrisburg area. So pleased to hear that overall you were satisfied with your stay and thank you for the compliments to our property. In regards to breakfast being crowded at times, it does have its times as I believe the make your own waffles is a favorite for every guest.

Beds are old and soft and too small. Very disappointed that Queen size is not offered at all; my son had to sleep on a cot b/c the full size beds were too small to fit him and my husband. Overall, the room is way too small for 4 people and drawer space is extremely sparse. Box spring on one bed was ripped and mattresses on both beds kept moving off box spring. Friends in another room had the same problems. I would not recommend this hotel even though I always try to stay at Hampton Inns. I will not return. I won't go to the Hampton Inn at Hershey as you charge a premium for location; I stay here b/c of price and I am not willing to raise my price point.

We stayed at this hotel during a trip to Hershey Park. It was filled to capacity as some sort of sports tournament was happening the weekend we were there. It was surprisingly quiet. They were out of roll-away cots, but it was so clean our son volunteered to sleep on the floor in his sleeping bag. The rooms looked newly redecorated, impeccably clean, and the beds were comfy! The bathroom was also very nice and had a nice shower. It has a nice location close to many restaurants and shops. We saw the outdoor heated pool and passed as it was not warm out, but we saw 2 kids having fun in the water. The free breakfast was good with quite a variety to suit everyone. The check-in and check out were also a breeze.

Very Good Hilton Property. Staff was very nice and helpful. About Nine Miles from Hershey Park. Close but not that Close. Staff had directions preprinted which were very helpful. Breakfast was very good and the Room was clean and appeared recently updated.

Our experience at your hotel "Harrisburg Penn" was probably the best since we have discovered the Hampton Inns back in 2007. Everything was perfect from the moment we stepped in the lobby. Great service, great room - overall a very comforting experience especially after a 12 hr drive that day.

A friend recommended staying here while going to Hershey Park for the One Direction concert Fourth of July weekend. It was SO close to park and not crowded at all. FREE breakfast for the kids and I. Even though the hotel was small it was VERY clean and cozy. Outdoor pool was clean and although there are signs "no lifeguard on duty" there was a girl who were telling the kids "the rules"
