Dear Travelers: Please note that the reviews that are so negative from 2006 NO LONGER APPLY! The owners have upgraded this hotel so much, it is quite lovely for the money nowdays. In fact, if you are traveling to very nearby Messiah College or even to D.T. Harrisburg, it is not far at all. The rooms are now quite modern, except perhaps the somewhat noisy fan in the bathroom, which we do not mind. The price to stay there if you are related in anyway with Messiah College is a wonderful savings. I must add that the price per night listed on many travel sites is significantly higher than when we just call the hotel directly! The owners are very sweet and helpful, and even the free breakfast has been upgraded. One other nice thing is that your car is quite secure, because the hotel is at the end of a nice quiet road parallel to the highway. That means that no one even bothers to come to the end of the lane unless they are also staying at the Econolodge. With a large mini-fridge, coffeemaker, etc., you just cannot beat the price anywhere in that locale for the number of amenities that are offered.
Nope, it's not the Taj Mahal, but is well worth your while to check out the Econolodge in Mechanicsburg if you are on a budget but
want a NICE, clean place near shopping malls, B.J.s and a lovely Cracker Barrel restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends, because it simply is MUCH NICER NOW than what the outdated reviews state. That is why we stayed there in Jan. and have already booked two more nights for March, 2009! In fact, I bet we stay there quite happily at least 8+ nights a year! Joyce and Bob Stotts, Newark, NY
