Location is great ... quiet and safe, plenty of free parking; adjacent to Bass Pro Shop, a mall and plenty of restaurants; short drive to National Civil War Museum, capital complex and a few other historic sites in Harrisburg. Hotel is very clean; staff are friendly and very customer service oriented. We had a room with a very comfortable king size bed and a quiet location on the 5th floor. We enjoyed a very relaxing three day vacation in Harrisburg and this hotel was a big part of our enjoying our visit. Thanks Hilton Garden staff!

OK so I've given it five stars and on a value basis it certainly deserves them. No, it is not a five star hotel but I think it would be difficult to beat for the money. Big, clean rooms, friendly staff, and plenty of facilities. The location is not exactly inspiring or central but it's safe and pleasant. It was thanks to the Tripadvisor reviews that I booked this place and I was not disappointed.

Stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn from Sept 2-5 using Hilton Honors points. Check-in was easy. Rooms were your standard hotel room. Nice TV, looked like it was 27-32". Two queen beds that you were able to adjust the stiffness. Nice sized bathroom. All clean. Indoor pool went up to 4ft which was great for my young kids who were learning how to swim. Outdoor pool went up to 5ft, but I had to get the bugs out of the pool that accumulated overnight.

Booked the hotel to enjoy a day at Hershey Park. It's located about 15 minutes from the park. The rate was high at $161 (AAA) but that was the average rate all around Hershey for a Saturday night. The (accessible) room well kept with two queens and the bathroom was large. Good AC, TV, and lighting. The beds could be adjusted for firmness but not a big difference in range. One odd thing was when I called the hotel directly to check rates, was told the AAA rate wasn't available. Booked online and got the AAA rate and when I checked in, received a $10 voucher for the pantry or restaurant. Basically, just crashed overnight, so didn't try the pool or restaurant, but the hotel is well maintained.

We stayed here last weekend, and I cannot say enough good things about the hotel or the staff. I was a little concerned about the noise, as I'd read the other reviews and heard about the summer weekends. Not only was the hotel immaculate, but we had a room right across from the entrance to the pool/gym on the first floor and didn't hear a thing. The second night we returned to the hotel, they even had classical music playing in the hallway! The front desk was staff interacted with us as if they were old friends, and we had the same experience with the waitstaff and hostess in the restaurant. It was the PERFECT weekend. Thank you so much!

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn recently and found the hotel to be very clean and a modern facility. We were greeted by the front desk staff and check in was swift and effortless. Our room was clean and spacious. The room was well equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker, and a microwave.
Our plans included a trip to Hershey Park, and the staff assisted in guiding us to a local Giant Food Store for discount tickets ($10 discount on each ticket). The front desk staff had written directions to the nearest Giant Food store. They also had written directions to and FROM Hershey park.
We capped off each evening with a dip in each of the three pools. While our favorite was the outdoor pool, the indoor heated spa pool sure felt good after a long day. We ate breakfast at the on site restaurant each day and went away satisfied and ready for the day ahead.
All staff was courteous and to the point. While you would expect the front desk staff to be concerned about your stay, I was surprised by the friendliness of the service staff. We were greeted with smiles and hello's from the service staff while they went about their work. It was clear that the entire hotel staff was quality oriented.

Harrisburg is a small city, so staying "outside" of Harrisburg at this hotel did not present any additional hassels for visiting the city; in fact - it was a straight-shot, five to ten minute drive to town (cabs were easy as well). This hotel is very clean and very comfortable. The price was fair. Service was not bad, fairly accomodating and mostly friendly. Had been here once prior on business and everything was consistent from that visit to this one.
