Fairfield Inn & Suites Harrisburg Hershey
Ranked #26 of 50 Hotels in Harrisburg
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We recently stayed @ this Fairfield Inn for a local Youth Hockey Tournament in Hershey. We travel extensively with this sport and typically stay at reasonably priced, NICE hotels since these trips are a great chance for the adults and players alike to enjoy comfortable accommodations & a sport we love!

I am AMAZED that the Marriott corporation would even attach their name to this DUMP!

The beds are so awful, you will think that you have been "relegated" to the worst possible pull-out sofa-bed as you feel every SINGLE spring throughout the night. This Fairfield Inn has DOUBLE beds, impossible to accommodate 2 people, while the curtains were stained, with burn marks in the carpet. This is FAR more like a roadside "motel" than a Marriott property.

Another Tripadvisor review alerted us to the area's "drive-by begger" approaching folks in the parking lot with a convoluted tale of needing $$ for a flat tire. Sure enough, the 1st night we were there, along he came with tales of his broken down horse trailer on the highway, pleading for our help. Creepy. Oh and BTW, mini-vans (that's what he drove) do NOT pull horse trailers!!!

There HAS to be nicer places to stay in this area. After a 6-7 hour drive and $100.00/night, a decent, comfortable bed is the LEAST we could expect. We will NOT be back. EVER.

We go to Hershey at least once a year. We have stayed at the courtyard before and loved it but decided to switch to the Fairfield this time. I was very disappointed the springs were popping out of the bed, the air unit was loud and our toilet got clogged and we needed to call to have it plunged. The area was not that nice. I would never stay there again. I love marriotts and realize they all are NOT the same quality

We were exhausted and needed a place to stay at 1:00am. We felt fortunate that this inn had a room. The desk clerk was friendly and welcoming, but did not know how to apply Marriott reward points. The moment we entered our first floor room, we were struck by a funky, unpleasant smell. We could not identify the odor. Otherwise the room was clean, and the bed was comfy. if we hadn't been so tired, we would have asked for a different room. In the am we were told that room required 20,000 points. We previously stayed at a much nicer Marriott property that was only 7500 points.

We stayed here because we were going to a wedding not too far away. On the plus side, the rooms were basically clean and had the basics necessary. On the downside, the entire ground floor smelled of chlorine and other residue related to the pool - it smelled forever damp. They did offer a free breakfast although we never made it, and they were strictly enforcing the timelines for serving, even though it was all pre-prepared stuff. The hotel was very close the Harrisburg airport, which was convenient on our last morning. It was also within 15 miles of Hershey World (as in the Chocolate) - see separate review. Opposite this hotel is a McDonalds if you're desperate, but there are loads of "chain" food choices here, as well as Empire Asian, a chinese/thai restaurant with surprisingly good food. An Irish pub on the East side of the freeway was good too. Overall, I wouldn't head here unless you're looking for a fairly cheap hotel in this particular location.

This hotel for me was average, the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. We could only get a refridgerator if we got a king size bed and a sofa sleeper. I would stay somewhere else if I was in Hershey because most hotels have a refridgerator in the rooms. And we got there at 1pm we could not get our room until after 3pm

As soon as we walked in, we noticed that the hotel did not smell well. When we asked the front desk about it, they did not notice it. Even our room did not smell well. We bought Air Wick to spray in our room and that helped.

My husband and I were passing through on our way home to Virginia from New England. We were fortunate they had a vacancy at the last minute. We stayed for one night arriving around 9 pm. The person at the desk was helpful and booked us into a quiet, immaculate room with all of the amenities. Breakfast bar had the basics you would expect with good OJ, hot coffee, hardcooked eggs, good cereal and bread choices. Would stay there again, for sure.
