Homewood Suites Harrisburg East-Hershey Area
Ranked #1 of 51 Hotels in Harrisburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2010

I travel to Harrisburg monthly for work and usually stay at the Hilton, but it was booked solid this time. I read the reviews of the Homewood Suites and decided to give it a try. Most hotels in the area are outside the downtown area, but they're pretty easy to find. Room was clean and well appointed, plenty of towels, a fully stocked kitchenette (complete with a pack of cookies and bottle of water on the counter), comfortable bed and sofa. The radio part of the clock radio didn't work and the TVs are older models instead of the flat screen LCDs found in many hotels today, but other than that, no complaints at all.

Stayed at the loctionfor 4 nights in a King Studio Room. I can not begin to say how wonderful this stay was. From check-in to check-out I could not find one thing wrong.
The King Studio room was large enough for 2 adults and 2 13 year old boys.
Room was immaculate, bedding was comfortable, more then enough pillows and blankets. The teenagers slept on the pull out couch and said it was fine. Bathroom was spotless, more then enough towels. The bathroom does not have a tub but a very large shower area.
Breakfast was wonderful. At least two hot choices daily along with fruit, yogart, muffins, bread, juices. Coffee was good and available all day. They also provide Mon-Thurs between the hours of 5 and 7pm a light dinner. We only had one night, but this impressed my husband who travels alot for business. Wine and beer are also complimentray at this time. Areas where the food was located was clean and replenished as soon as something was empty.
Previous reviews mention the pool area as small. I can honestly say that we did not feel that. There is no outdoor pool and it was not missed. Pool towels replenish all the time. The thing that impresses me the most is that the pool and hot tub area are open from 6am to Midnight! Early morning swim for me was very quite. Workout room is small but has anything that you need for a good work out. Enjoyed all facilites on premises.
Business center had 2 computers, printers and equiped with paper, pens, staplers..again husband was very impressed for this free service.
Any employee at this location that we ran into or interacted with, were friendly, always smiling and willing to help.
There was a DVD player in our room and the TV also had input plug for video game if you choice to bring it. We had PS3 and it hooked up great and the boys were also able to play on line.
The managers and employees should be very proud of their hotel!

I had a reservation for a one night stay at this hotel. When my kids and I arrived, I was informed that 5 families had not vacated their rooms.and they were unable to get in contact with the people still occupying the rooms. The hotel was completely booked and they apologized profusely that they would be unable to give us a room. What they did however was put us in a room at the Hilton Garden Inn, which is located just across the street, at no charge to us. They also extended the offer of their dinner and breakfast at their location. The dinner that night was swedish meatballs and salad, it was quite good. Unfortunately, I can not tell you what the inside of their rooms looked like but the hotel in general looked very nice. What I can tell you is that they seemed to be very customer service oriented. I will be looking to stay at more Hilton properties in the future.

I guess the hotel was really booked because we got an accessible suite that we did not ask for. The bars in the closet were too low to hang our clothes. I asked to change rooms and was told there was nothing else available. The sheets were quite worn, and the duvet was very rough to the touch and did not seem overly clean. There was what appeared to be mold in our shower and the room smelled musty. We did not eat dinner because nothing offered was appropriate fof someone with diabetes and food allergies. Breakfast was a little better, but not much. I carry food with me, but could not heat it up because the microwave in our our room was missing its turntable, so we didn't use it The sofabed was very uncomfortable and the noise level from the hall and the upstairs neighbors was very high. All in all, not a very good night's sleep. I realize we got one of the last rooms and oiur experience may have been better in another room, but we would not be inclined to try this hotel again. The experience did not jusify the price.

Stayed for one night, if back in area will use this as base and travel to other areas. Staff so kind and helpful. Room spacious and spotless. Best kitchen for any extended hotel I've used. Large, safe and clean laundry area. Children enjoyed pool and basketball. We paid $155 but that included breakfast and dinner for a family of four. Food staff are so sweet and helpful. Dinner includes red and white wine along with standard choices. Safe neighborhood, plenty of shopping nearby. Much better than staying in Hershey.

This hotel is fantastic. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and friendly. The rooms were spotless and breakfast was tasty. The pool was great and the courtyard was a great place for my children to play basketball or practise their putting. We stayed here and travelled to Hershey and it was approximately a 20 minute drive.

Felt very welcome in this hotel, with comfortable room which "forced" us to feel relaxed. Pool was fine, and we managed to sunbathe outside in the garden area. Didn't make use of the "free" spaghetti with meatsauce that was on offer as an evening meal, but nice touch.
