“Best bang for your buck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I commute a long distance to work, and from time to time need to stay closer to my employer than home. This location is perfect in conjunction with local destinations in Harrisburg and Hershey, is situated next to a Micro-Brewery, as well as 10 minutes away from my employer. They have an outstanding value for a room in the middle of the week, which is a welcome respite from my long drive in the evenings. All told, this place is clean, convenient, well-priced, in a prime location and offers a quality breakfast.

The front desk was not very friendly. The hotel needed to be cleaned better. The bathroom in our room was not very clean and there were bugs crawling on the floor. The back to the toilet was not on the toilet and it "ran" all night. There was a large crowd of teenage kids running up and down the hallway at all hours of the night. The coffee was very poor. I would not stay here again.

Tammy at the front desk was very kind and helpful.
She made the first impression of the motel really good.
The room was clean, bed sheets were snow white.
TV, microwave and refrigerater were all in excellent condition.
I'll definitely revisit in the future.
