“Nice stay after long day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I stayed here after a very long day at Hershey Park. Check in was pleasant and smooth. Lobby area was clean and nice looking. Room was a very nice room. Had the king with the sofa pull out. Bed was comfortable and my fellow travelors had no complaints about the sofa bed. Called for an extra blanket and they service was prompt and polite. Ate breakfast at the pub attached. The buffet was decent and the staff was super nice. Would stay here anytime in the future if I'm in the area.

Very nice service- the staff (Steve and Yvonne) were extremely helpful, because there was a mixup with my reservation through Orbitz and I had let it cancel out...they managed to restore it. All employees were pleasant and friendly. Kids eat free at breakfast and dinner, both of which are quite good- breakfast is a buffet and dinner is "Irish Pub" food, but with some nice items and well executed. (Beer list is also extensive.) The maid service was also excellent, also. Overall the hotel was clean, pleasant, and user-friendly. The indoor pool was appealing. Everything was great! The only reason I took away one star and the only problem I had with the place is the fact that it is situated right next to a highway, so therefore noisy. We were on the second floor, and although I had requested a quiet room, I found that highway noise woke me up at night. Still, I managed to sleep rather well and didn't find the need to try and switch rooms mid-stay. Bring ear plugs! Still, we got a great deal on a hotel, let alone one that turned out to be so wonderful! Thanks to the hotel for such a great time!

Room Tip: Higher floors mean less noise, I imagine

I stayed here with my two boys for a 4 day 3 night family Services Retreat. Check in was very easy now finding your room in what I call a maze of a hotel isn't as easy!! After getting lost we found it easier to walk down the stairs and walk outside to get to the lobby and back to our room!!! Pool was very clean maybe a little to much chlorine but clean and plenty of seating for parents!!! Kitchen Staff was amazing very kid friendly and polite for the 4 days there we had all meals provided and not once where we disappointed with the food!!! Rooms are modern and clean bed aren't as comfy as my own but got a good nights sleep each night!!! Wifi sucks when not in room or in the lobby area!!! Overall great stay and will stay again!!!!

Room Tip: Near a Stairwell on parking lot side

Recently we stayed at the Best Western Prmier in Harrisburg,Pa. for a Lax Tournament. My son left his retainor behind and when I called they had it for us. Wow, I did not expect that and we received it in the mail within a few days! Awesome!
The rooms were a nice size and very clean but best of all there is an Irish Pub which was just what we needed after a long day of lacrosse!

We were very pleased with the overall expierence! We have 4 kids and they ate free at the restaurant which had resonable prices and very good food! The breakfast buffet was very good something for all. We all enjoyed the pool and I really have nothing bad to say. Staff was very helpful and friendly and rooms were very spacious and clean! We will go back the next time we are near there.

Very surprised with the new look and feel.
Better room than the gotel we just came from in Quebec for twice the price.

Be sure to ask for parking lot side. We stayed on highway side and semi trucks air brake all night. :(.

Stayed here after visiting Hersheypark. Felt nauseous and sick from a bad last ride at the park and my boyfriend went to the front desk to find me some ginger ale...the woman at the front desk (Bridget I think?) Said she would look for some and call our room. 10 minites later, a knock at our door...she had gone to the bar attached to the hotel and brought me 2 cups of ginger ale, a cup of ice, and saltines up to our room free of charge! The nicest thing any hotel staff member has done for me. She was very sweet. Such a welcoming and nice place to stay.
