“A nicer motel 6”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

As far as motel 6s go, this one is one of the nicer ones. I really liked how the room was decorated, nice colors and furniture, hardwood floors. Also, this is probably one of the cheapest hotels in the area and it is pet friendly.

But it is a motel 6, not too many complaints really. It's a room to sleep in for the night. There's a small pool. Our television had a dead line down the center and some kind of weird spots. Wifi was extra. Everybody was friendly, some of the other clientele were not.. Lol.

Booked room based on other recent reviews, not disappointed. The new laminate floors are great--no carpet stains. Of high importance is that the bathroom fan works, unlike many other economical properties.

One disappointment is the broken mattress springs in the one bed...you sit and you sink and it makes crunching noises, at least the other half of that bed is firm and not crunchy.

Fine enough for one adult and two teens after a day at Hershey Park.

Check in was a breeze and front desk was friendly and professional. Room was ready and looked great. The new "IKEA" look is fantastic. Only issue we had was I found ants the following morning in the room, but front desk took care of it as soon as I mentioned it. The hotel is only about 30 min from hershey attractions and easy access to the highways. I would definitely stay there again even though the rooms were a little small for two double beds (one was resting up against window and air conditioner, but stil an Excellent value

The price was great and it was the only one available in the Harrisburg / Hershey area, though we booked it one month in advance. Prior years' reviews were mixed but it was a very good basic stay; we would probably stay agan. The rooms have been redone, fresh paint and bedding, new window and shower curtains; all very clean and in good shape. We were promised a queen but were placed in a handicap room (tho' not needed) with a double bed. It had a large shower stall, no problem, but the bathroom door didn't open all the way because @ 6 inches of the bed blocked it. Oh, well, it was tolerable for a great rate.
Though most rooms were non-smoking there were a lot of smokers hanging outside of their rooms, didn't like that part.
The motel was sold out and a lot of guests were there for the One Direction concert (including us). So....more noise than I'd like from @ midnight to 2, cars arriving and excited girls chatting. Walls were thin. One concern was that the hotel staff, though very nice, could not handle the volume, long time to check in, and the rooms were due to be ready at 2 but we couldn't get in before 4:15. They said the prior night's concert guests didn't leave on time. We had our dog so had to drive around to find dog friendly places in 95 degrees -- thank you Bass Pro Shops!

Room Tip: There are three floors; assk for a higher floor in the back, a little less car noise. We didn't...

I stayed in a refurbished room. It was excellent. Everything was clean, convenient, and good quality. Best of all was the attitude of the people at the front desk. They were very nice to deal with. The biggest negative was their computer attempted to charge me for wifi access. The people at the desk corrected this and were gracious about doing so. The differences I find with the big bucks places were the courtesy of the staff at this Motel 6, and the plain lobby compared to places that charge 10 times as much.

I have stayed at this Motel 6 a few times over the past 4 years, and it's never been better! All of the rooms are being remodeled everything completely brand new, the same low prices... Staff is always professional and very helpful, especially Martin, Raj and William. Even with all of the construction going on, I have no complaints!

This Motel 6 is better than others I've stayed at around the country. It is a super-value if you just need a place to sleep. Be sure to bring your own shampoo as none i provided. Plan to use your data plan as there is a charge for wifi access.
Good restaurants nearby, and quick access to Harrisburg, and the airport.
NOTE: Motel Rooms are in the process of being renovated as of April, 2013.
