Comfort Inn Riverfront
Ranked #30 of 51 Hotels in Harrisburg
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks while our newborn was in the NICU of the local hospital. The staff of this hotel is friendly and accommodating every request or problem was addressed immediately. The rooms are clean and updated. It sits directly on the waterfront with a pretty view. Plenty of safe parking with an attached restaurant. Within walking distance to many activities downtown.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled with family

Thank you for taking the time to write a response when I know you are very busy with your newborn baby! Hopefully you are all doing well! The Comfort Inn Riverfront is a perfect location for anyone visiting the Harrisburg area. Located within walking distance to the Pinnacle Hospital. We are also a great location for visiting City Island, Whittaker Center and the Capital.
We have many great restaurants near by and a beautiful view of the Susquehanna River! The team at the Comfort Inn Riverfront is committed to providing truly exceptional service for all of our guests. Clean rooms, a great hot breakfast that includes waffles, eggs sausage and with a super cup of coffee among many other items! As well as 2 of the friendliest breakfast hostesses on the east coast! Come see us again in the springtime! The flowering cherry trees are truly a sight to see!

My wife and I stayed here in December 2013 to attend a concert at the Forum in Harrisburg Pa. Check in was very smooth and the gentleman who checked us in was very polite and helpful. The room was very clean and nice, the shower worked great, we had a comfortable bed and nice light dimming curtains which provided a great nights sleep. The continental breakfast was adequate and the coffee was good. There is a decent Indian restaurant in the hotel complex called passage to India, a little pricey for what you get ,but it was good food. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others .

Our room was large and had a comfortable king bed. The room was clean, breakfast was tasty, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Parking is free and ample. The river is just behind the hotel, and there is a nice trail that goes for quite a distance in both directions. Many historic buildings, the restored train station, and state capitol are a short walk away.

My husband and I spent the night December 21 for a company holiday party. We had a very pleasant and painless check in process. Our room was clean all the way around. Although we had a room facing a main road, we could not hear the noise. The mattress and pillows were rather firm for my liking (but that is my preference). Breakfast the next morning was nice as well. We would definitely stay again. I had no idea this hotel was pet friendly, the room did not have any indication of that, and we did not hear any pets either :)

This was the best hotel stop of our trip back and forth to New England. It was clean, the lobby was clean and someone was always there. It's right across from the riverfront and a really nice walk. Also very nice for walking poochy. The lady that took care of the breakfast was the sweetest person in the world...always making sure you had what you needed, she even carried my coffee back down the hall to my room because I had my hands full.

So we had a nice clean room, excellent breakfast, excellent service, pet friendly room for $115 and a $25 pet fee. I am not even sure they always charge the pet fee. I have a feeling our little Shih Tsu barked while we were out to eat and somebody complained. I would have too. We should have put her in her crate.

We stayed here for one night on our journey from New York to Virginia. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The view of the river was great, I wished we were there for longer. The members of staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good, with a good selection of food and plenty of space for the guests. I have had a lot of bad experiences with Choice hotels, but this was one of their better hotels. The Indian restaurant next door was excellent - definitely worth a visit.
