“nice, basic”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

My boyfriend and I were in town to visit bass pro shop. Hotel is plain, basic, but clean which is my biggest must. Hotel advertised breakfast, but they do not actually serve it. That was my only complaint.

Staff was very friendly. Pool room had the heaters on during a 90+ day, felt like a sauna. Couldnt connect to the wifi, ended up with a cold shower, and parking is nonexistent when the hotel is full. Other than all that, everything was ok. About expected for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for something on the hotel side facing away from the truck stop.

First night 3/29; $41.39 (TH) + $44.99 (FR, SA) = $131.37, plus 11% tax; Micro-fridge, Free WIFI though I didn't try it. Parking lot didn't have enough spaces if all rooms were booked, but there were empty spaces when I was there. I've had good luck with Motel 6 and this one was clean, spacious, and new. Didn't like the higher weekend rate but it wasn't a killer increase. It was an easy 3.34 miles drive on interstate to Keystone Conference at Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel, so I definitely saved money not staying at Sheraton.

In general this is a nice, clean new hotel. Unfortunately (for me), my non-smoking room smelled like a smoker had lived there for about a month. Since I checked in so late at night, I didn't bother switching rooms as I just wanted to turn down for the night. Otherwise it seems like a nice hotel. Reception was cordial as well.

Stayed at this Motel 6 for one night while traveling through PA with my dog. This was one of the nicest "budget" motels that I have ever stayed in. The king sized bed was extremely comfortable. The room was nicely appointed with microwave, refrigerator, etc. and very clean. The area was very nice and safe! Not much area to walk the dog on the motel property, but plenty of grass in the immediate vicinity. Would definitely stay here again.

Best Motel 6 ever. I frequently travel between Michigan and Maine with 2 dogs and often stay at Motel 6 because 1) I'm just traveling from one place to another, not on holiday; 2) Motel 6 pet friendly everywhere.

Hands down this is the BEST Motel 6 I've ever stayed in. New, squeaky clean and in a nice area. No safety concerns, which can be kind of iffy with some Motel 6 sites. Highly recommend. But be sure to check addresses. Lots of Motel 6 properties in/around Harrisburg.

We stayed here last night after finding a coupon in the PA welcome center coupon book. We were looking for something halfway between Rochester, NY and Richmond, Va and with a price like $55, you can't be beat! Front desk guy was friendly, hotel was clean, beds were clean and comfy enough, bathrooms tidy and the shower was hot. My husband used the fitness room and said the machines seemed old and rickety but what are you going to do? It's Motel 6 people, not the Ritz- Carlton. The only downside was the 4th floor hallway smelled slightly of stale smoke as did the room but as soon as we opened the window, it seemed to air it out- and i am EXTREMELY sensitive to smoke. There are microwaves and mini fridges in the room, and they had coffee brewing in the lobby (although we didn't take advantage of it.) I would definitely stay here again.
