Econo Lodge Harrisburg
Ranked #35 of 51 Hotels in Harrisburg
Reviewed November 12, 2013

This was a modest Econo Lodge with a big plus; it was very easy to find from the highway. We arrived around 9 PM and after checking in, we found several places to eat dinner. In spite of being so close to the highway, it was quiet and we had a good night's rest in comfortable beds. We didn't sample the free continental breakfast. The desk attendant in the morning was very helpful; the previous evening's attendant was not long on charm. But, all in all, the property filled our needs for a one-night stay.

Room Tip: I called to get our reservation.

Lobby looked dirty, staff couldn't care less about your stay, found weird bugs in room. Sheets seemed okay, but the room was riddled with dust. I left my flip-flops on the entire time. Moreover, this particular location attracted a very young crowd, that were often loud at times.

I would not recommend this if you like clean, fresh rooms. The lobby and the hallways were not cooled and smelled dirty. I asked the attendant if the room was clean (we'd had a previous bad experience with an Econolodge in Savannah, GA) and, of course, he said "yes!!". So, we asked for a key so that we could examine the room before we committed. At first glance, it seemed the room was clean so, we chose to stay. Upon actually getting ourselves set, we found that the tile in the bath was clean but, there was absolute filth around the hinges on the shower door... We needed to use the electrical outlet behind the nightstand so, pulled it out to find that it had most likely never been cleaned back there. I checked the bedclothes carefully for signs of bedbugs... hopefully, there were none. We chose to skip the bath, sleep quickly and move on. Not recommended at all.

Overall this was a decent lodge.Free continental breakfast included. Even though it's close to the highway, there was no noise heard from the speeding cars.Room was pretty decent. The staff members were helpful and friendly.

We stayed here for one night. When we arrived the lobby looked disgusting, there is so much build up of who knows what on the walls. There were also weird bugs crawling on the walls. We had two rooms. One of the rooms had obvious cobwebs on the front of the dressers and the bathroom was disgusting. The room I stayed in, the bathroom was disgusting as well, there is so much build up in the tracks of the shower doors, the shower looked as if had not been cleaned, I actually stood on a towel to shower, the toilet smelled like a urinal, the walls in the room were disgusting as well. Also, as I was lying in bed I was very nervous about the sanitariness of the sheets, I look and the blanket had a brown/red dried substance all over it. I understand that not all hotels are "nice" but that does not mean they need to be dirty. You do get what you pay for here, I would never stay here again or recommend this to anyone. This place is disgusting, thankfully we were only there a night.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms!

Nothing terribly outstanding but for the money and location, this does the job. Stayed here with family while passing through for the night. Clean room, great breakfast with outstanding service both at the front desk and at the breakfast bar. Easily stay there again if I needed a room.

Overall was pretty good. Bed was comfortable, room was quiet, clean and although small, not too small. No bathtub but shower was real big and easy to use. Breakfast was standard. I'd stay again. Staff was friendly and very customer satisfaction oriented.
