Reviewed April 14, 2014

Truck Parking. Small frig and microwave are available for a fee to keep budgets in line. The hotel was clean. I loved the staff. The hospitality was incredibly friendly from the housekeeping staff, to the front desk, to the shuttle drivers and general manager. I never had a minute in 10 days where I wished I had stayed somewhere else. And I love your hot tub! I felt like I was staying with extended family throughout the entire visit. It was nice to feel wanted. There were several conferences cycling through throughout the week so there was always new people to socialize with at the pool and hot tub. Plus the hotel shuttle and public transportation bus gives the opportunity to meander and explore. Thank You for a great stay

Room Tip: choosing a room that faces the pool and gardens rather than the parking lot are better.

My family and I stayed here and we're very pleased with not only the spacious and clean rooms but the amazing staff and amenities! Really nice place to stay if you are coming to the Hershey a Harrisburg area. And the pool looks awesome, but unfortunately we were not here when it was open. Makes me want to come back for sure!

From my check-in to check out, the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East staff made my stay a breeze! The front desk staff was more than accommodating for my family and I. The hotel staff was so knowledgeable about surrounding restaurants and area attractions. My spacious queen room was immaculate and housekeeping even left extra shower bottles for us upon request!

We have been attending a yearly conference hosted by this Hotel for 15+ years.
Each year that we return, we think that things could not be done any better then they were
the last time, BUT to our surprise, they always are !
We are always greeted by our names as we enter and staff seem genuinely happy to see us again ( as we are them!).
The high employee retention rate is testament to the type of company that this is to work for.
Cleanliness, attention to detail , prompt and efficient reply to guest requests , excellent food & drink and amenities are just a few of the things that make this hotel a " first class operation".
Management are always visible & interact with both guests & employees in a very respectful and friendly way.
Whether staying overnight or for a longer period of time, this hotel is "first rate".
We are always sad when our conference is over, but leave always looking forward to our next visit.

This is our 15th season in a row using the Holiday Inn East and without a doubt the best one yet. We introduced close to 2,000 guests to the property and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive regarding the rooms, food quality, and staff service level each weekend there. We are already re-booked for next year!
