Long story short, this hotel is "pet friendly" as long as you remain in your room at all times to ensure your pet remains totally silent. Otherwise you will get a call telling you to return to the hotel.

To me this just sounds like they wanted to check the pet friendly box. They make no effort to accommodate guests with pets.

On a side not, the beds were C+ at best and the in room tvs do not allow you to plug in ROKU devices for some reason.

Certainly a serviceable hotel in a decent location, but I would not book again.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with future visitors of the Harrisburg area. We are diligent in our efforts to accommodate our guests, including those whom travel with pets. While we understand pets are considered family by many, our ultimate goal is to provide comfortable accommodations for all.

We certainly do not expect pets to be silent; however, should a pet cause a disturbance for another guest, we will notify the owner in an effort to limit the impact to others enjoying the hotel.

We truly value the feedback provided by our guests, as it provides us with invaluable insight into areas of opportunity. I am confident our team will leverage your feedback in an effort to support our goal of exceeding our guests’ expectations. We wish you and your family continued safe travels and an enjoyable and safe Independence Day.

Best Regards,

Peter J. Chiccarine, CHA
General Manager | the Central Hotel

I just took a very large group to this hotel and we all absolutely loved it! The rooms are large and the suite offers a separate bedroom. We especially loved the free popcorn and ice cream in the lobby during happy hour. Pool was large and clean and plenty of fresh towels. The pub had a huge menu and the staff were friendly. The hotel has a ‘quiet’ policy at 10 pm- slept like a baby! Drive to Hershey Park took about 20 mins. Will absolutely be back again!

Here for a conference. Room was nice with more amenities than expected. Food was much better than anticipated. Had buffet meals and all were good but dinner was excellent with tender beef, tasty ham, and chicken and fish choices. Appetizers were very good - scallops, meatballs, and cheese plates with veggies. Irish pub had great ala carte food. Probably the nicest Best Western I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.

I stayed here with my husband, two small children, and family dog recently on a vacation to Hershey Park. Hotel is very clean, staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and parking is plentiful. They’re located about 15min or so from Hershey Park and we found it to be just the right distance. Indoor pool was a great bonus as well as the game room. Hotel doesn’t offer a free breakfast, but attached restaurant does service breakfast buffet style (with discount for hotel guests) and a la carte options.

The room was extremely clean. The food at the restaurant was really good. My son LOVED the pool which was really clean. The bed wasn't bad. Location was close to Hershey Park approximately 15-20 minutes away. Overall Great Stay!
