“Drive a little Save a lot!”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Just 10 minutes west of Downtown Harrisburg, PA. We planned our first trip to the Horse World Expo held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and were looking for a hotel. I am very thorough, and very cheap. We planned to spend so much time at the Expo, the hotel would only be for sleeping. I searched the internet for all the least expensive options. It ended down to this and a small private motel in Hershey. This won hands down I got the government rate which is only a few bucks cheaper than the regular discount rate.

The room was simply great. A brand new hotel! My daughter commented it was the first place we have stayed that had no smell. That is smell as in good or bad. Simply no odor at all.

The most important thing I have to say is the breakfast is really nice. People familiar with Holiday Inn Express hotels may know this but the pictures of the Breakfast area are very poor. It has a cereal bar with juices. Plenty of coffee. For the two days we were there they offered two different choices. First was sausage biscuits and gravy and bacon. And scrambled eggs. The second day there were cute little cheese omelets. I tried to be healthy and had oatmeal and yogurt.

My wife used the exercise area and with the exception of a broken item it was nice. I wish we'd had time to take a swim. Unfortunately events like this try to draw all the cash out of you. Once you spend the day walking around the expo they have a weekend evening show so you leave just in time to go to sleep.

Our room was basically an efficiency. we could have lived there for weeks. two comfortable beds with a sink, microwave fridge. there was an easy chair and a desk.

can't really say a bad thing about it.

I would guess this was built to serve the small Technology park nearby. It seemed that most of the people staying there were going to the expo like us.

Room Tip: This place is brand new so I really doubt it has a bad room. Ours was right next to the elevator an...

Close to the Highway and easy to find. A good value. Dine out venues were a bit sparse and not close. Complimentary Breakfast was good enough to get me to lunch. I would stay again.

Recent weekend visit (Jan 2012) with family in Harrisburg and was quite impressed with this hotel. I'm a neat freak and the rooms were very clean and well appointed with a large seating area separated from the bed by a small partition. Underground parking was nice in the frigid weather, breakfast options were plentiful, and the hotel was super-quiet. Didn't hear anything even though there was a wedding that weekend. Pull-out sofa was used for my daughter and, unlike other hotels, you could still walk thru the room with the sofa bed pulled out. As large as the whole room is, the bedroom area felt a little cramped - the king sized bed was pushed almost right up against the window and air/heat and you had to almost sit on the bed to open the closet. The reason I mention this is because the air/heat cycles constantly - no matter whether we turned it higher/lower or OFF (which we tried to do), it would start blowing air into the room (and right on the bed that is almost touching the unit) approx every 5-10 mins. We had family members in 2 other rooms and they had the same complaint - noise from the constant cycling kept awakening them thru the nite. Temp was difficult to adjust - the air that blew on you while sleeping was either hot or cold.

Despite the problems/noise with the HVAC unit, I would stay here again. The value for the price (less than $90/night) was amazing - high quality rooms at a low price.

We arrived late for a wedding the next day, the woman was very friendly, and I forgot a razor and shaving creme, and she had it right away. The rooms were great and the free breakfast was awesome...and a real breakfast! Much better than normal free ones.
Seriously, stay here.

Even though we are basically in the middle of nowhere here, visiting family, this hotel has made for an awesome stay! It feels very new. The rooms are very clean and BIG with a seating area separated from the beds by a half wall. Crisp white bedding, supremely comfortable beds (though very very high! if you have mobility issues, you might need a step stool!) with both firm and soft pillows. Small pool with warm water, great for kids. Excellent free breakfast with pancakes, eggs, cinnamon rolls (sub standard coffee but what do you expect). Friendly & helpful staff. Big shower with an awesome shower head and yummy smelling shampoo and lotion. Never would have expected this in Mechanicsburg but this hotel can hold its own in any large city. Very pleasantly surprised.

Stayed at this hotel on Christmas Day. Front desk clerk went out of his way to find eating establishments that would be open. Hotel was clean and quiet, beds comfortable. Standard breakfast included. Underground parking garage an amazing amenity that provided extra security and shelter from elements. This is a brand new hotel. Easy access to highway.
