“Farm Aid 2012”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was the designated hotel for concert volunteers. What a great choice. Very nice rooms complete with microwave and fridge and VERY comfortable beds with luxurious bedding. Hotel staff friendly and accomodating. Nice bar/ restaurant area in the beautiful lobby with good food, not too pricey. Coffee always available and station well stocked. Rooms very clean, nice flat screen TV, free wifi and 2 computers for use in the business center. Great hotel, would stay again.

Stayed here when we went to the Camping Expo @ Hershey Park. Great location!! We arrived on a Friday evening, (1st time visit). Very close to the mall, plenty of restaurants. We ate @ the hotel to try something different and it was really good. I was surprised for being Hotel Food. Someone next to us got the dessert, would not recommend that looked average. We had a King room, everyone was friendly, fresh cookies @ check in. Pool open until 10pm, Laundry available, did not use it. Right off I-83 Would stay here again!!

Room Tip: Beds were comfy!!

We had a party of six adults spanning 3 generations. We had two connecting rooms on the 4th floor. Hotel is close to I83 and near several restaurants. Clean, quiet, and well lit parking lot. Definitely a place I'll stay again.

Stayed here during a trip to Hersheypark. Located about 15-20 mins away from the park. Easy to get to.

The hotel had friendly staff who welcomed us when we checked in at 1130 PM. The lobby was clean. We parked out back by the pool and had easy access to the elevator. The hotel pool looked nice but we did not use it.

Out double bed room was decent in size. The bathroom was good sized. The furniture in the room was worn and dated. Needs to be replaced. The sheets also looked worn out and were thinning in some places. Also, when you make a reservation for 4 people, why would they only provide 3 bath towels? At that late hour of night we did not bother to wait for an extra towel. Only 3 of 4 of us showered before bed. We asked for the extra towel in the morning - took about 20 mins. The fridge in the room is a great perk but it makes a lot of noise.

The carpets in the hallway were wet - not people walked up from the pool wet but the entire carpet was wet. Did not ask for an explanation.

We did not have the breakfast for $12.95/person.

If I come to this area again, I will consider an alternate hotel.

Room Tip: Aside from the Hilton nonrefundable 7 day in advance purchase rate, the AAA rate was very good and c...

Dear Dewey.Nikhu,

Thank you for telling us of your experience, at our Hilton Garden Inn Harrisburg East, while visiting Hershey Park this past season.
As the new General Manager our whole team is focused on providing a positive 4 or 5 star experience, not just a 3 star. We do have attractive rate discounts and packages on line. I draw your attention though, to our Bed & Breakfast packages on line which would save a lot more. Our standard is to have four towels in every room. When you make reservations you can even request more, and they will be in your room upon arrival. I regret that we shorted you a towel and the furniture had scratches or dents in your room. We are only 6 years old but we have a preventive maintenance program going forward that addresses those physical issues. The wet carpet was from an adjacent guest room overflow. I regret it was not vacuumed before your experience.

I truly hope you will visit us on your next Hershey Park trip. Please email me, as I would like to personally make your next reservation and to insure our normal 4-5 star experience.

Kind regards,
Bill Duffy

This hotel was OK but subpar in my realm of experience with Hilton Garden Inns. My cohort and I smelled "fresh-baked" cookies as soon as we checked in, but the ones on the counter seemed old and cold and not there "all the time." The "cooked" breakfast was not worth the $13 it cost and the wait staff seemed disoriented and disinterested, as in no "Good morning" but "Do you know what you want ?" !!??? We went to the local diner for breakfast next morning. The evening lady bartender was nice enough though and we sat outside on the patio since the weather was nice.

Been to a lot of Hilton Garden Inn's and this one didn't disappoint with some exceptions to lack of detail during breakfast. The good: great location for pleasure (in Harrisburg and only 15 min from Hershey attractions), comfortable, clean, and accommodating. I can't give this 5 stars though because for breakfast, too many missed details. There was only 2 other tables the waitress was waiting on. We gave the waitress our order who was writing it down. To make a long story short, she forgot my OJ, my bacon, and my wife's request for no cheese in her omelette. Its just too many missed items especially after she was writing it down too. I wasn't really annoyed by it because since I'm a Hilton Gold member, breakfast is free. But if I was paying the $12.95 per person, then yeah I would've been annoyed.
