It is a lovely hotel but depending where you stay in the hotel it can be noisy if you are in a room facing the highway and some patrons were very loud and woke us up (which isn't the hotels fault). The housekeeping did not clean inside the toilet for a stay over but otherwise, the room we had was very nice and very clean and provided a lot of good quality amenities. The hotel gave us a very good discount for the outdoor event we've attended. I would stay there again but only if it isn't facing the highway.

You can not express the wonderful experience we had at this hotel. The staff is amazing at thid hotel. Walking into hotel the magnificent detail of the craftmanship and the decor was simply beautiful. It was so easy to check in. The room was quiet and had every comfort of home. We stayed 16 days. So impressed with how clean everything was kept. The house keeping was excellent. Room was always well stocked. During my stay it snowed and ice several times. Parking lot and doorway we always cleared. Really they took extra care for our safety. Hotel restarant was impressive. The decor was heavy wood and stain glass beautiful. Food and drinks were great and reasonable priced. Would highly recommend this hotel. We be staying here everytime I'm in town. Have 25 friends, clients and other exhibitors that will be booking rooms for next years outdoor show.

Room Tip: Every room is well layed out

This was the best hotel/motel experience I have had in the past 20 years! Very caring staff, great food in the Irish pub, extremely comfortable beds (especially for a person with prior back surgery); all contributed to a superb stay. I never expected this level of quality and service from a Best Western.

stayed here in my recent visit PA. I went to the outdoor show and the hotel provided shuttle service to and from all day long. staff was accommodating and friendly. the only one issue we had was after the concert we were left waiting for a good 45 min as the shuttle kept missing his exit but over all it was a good experience. bed were comfortable and the rooms were clean.

We enjoyed the total experience. The onsite restaurant had great food and was a good value. Cleanliness was excellent. They provided a shuttle service to Sportsman Show so we didn't have to fight the traffic.

Just like the latest reviews. We also stayed here to attend the outdoor show. The staff, rooms, hotel, everything was just great. Very relaxing and quite especially after being on your feet all day walking the outdoor show. The shuttle drivers are just as friendly. O'Reilly's is a great place for a couple drinks and great food. Stayed 2 nights, parked the car and didn't even think about it until we checked out to go home, there was no need. Fantastic stay all around. If the Great American Outdoor show is in Harrisburg PA next year, I know where I'll be staying.

Our room was big, clean ,very comfortable and over looking a beautiful pool. The best part was the staff they made us feel welcome. Special thanks to Tracy who gave us the first floor pool side room. Many thanks to Bob at the hotel restaurant who provided an excellent customer service.
A heartfelt thank you to Mauriscio who was absolutely wonderful and helpful in giving us information regarding the activities and attractions in near by towns including the Shoofly Pies'''''
He was friendly, personable and he went an extra mile for us we are greatly appreciated. Overall
the staff were just fantastic. We want to come back to this good hotel very soon.

Room Tip: Get a room next to the pool
