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.
