“Outstanding Staff”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed last weekend for PSU's Parents' and Families' Weekend, and we were pleased with the hotel. Very clean and conveniently located. Hot tub was a warm tub on Friday night, but it was fixed on Saturday. My comment with regard to the value is skewed because the rates were hiked for the special event weekend - we paid $300/night for a regular room. Free breakfast is nice (but limited), but I simply had to write a review because of the very positive experience with the staff. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming - my 12-year-old daughter even commented on how nice the staff was. They won her over with the free lollipops at the check-in desk. The hotel is walking distance to Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, and Texas Roadhouse. We'll stay again.

Arrived late at night. Left early in the morning. Everything was fine. Convenient to the highway. A reasonably priced selection for those visiting Penn State. About ten minutes to the campus. Nice breakfast.

I have stayed at several Springhill Suites in many different cities and as I said in my summary, it was average. The Harrisburg property was much nicer. The staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. Sound dampening between rooms could be better as I listened to Monday night football from the room next door and didn't need a wake up call as my neighbor's was enough for me.

Liked the location, close to a Wegmans and more...seems strange but every time I come to PA, I've got to go to Wegmans for a craft beer or exotic fruit.

Hello Fenian5,

Thank you for taking the time to fill out your review. Please feel free to call our front desk staff any time there is an issue with noise; they are available 24/7 to help our guests have a pleasant stay. If you are looking for another location for craft beer, Otto’s Brewery has their beer for sale and it’s just passed the Wegmans. There is also the local beer distributor Pletchers which is about a mile from our property. If you would like directions to these locations please feel free to ask the Front Desk during your next visit.

Thank you,

This hotel is nice and was clean. Complimentary breakfast was very good however we found the hot tub (whirlpool) to be extremely hot where your skin turned Red in under a minute of being in it. We asked at the front desk if the temperature could be turned down a few degrees and when the maintenance man came to check it he said it was set at "Marriott" standard regulated temperature and refused to turn it down. Of course my family plus 4 other guests using the pool/hot tub could not even sit on the sides with our feet dangling in as the steam coming off made breathing difficult. We had stayed at the Holiday Inn the previous weekend which was excellent however it did not have any pool/hot tub facilities so we were extremely disappointed to not be able to use the hot tub at this other, much more expensive hotel. I sent a formal complaint to Marriott and they have come back saying it is standard policy to keep their hot tubs at this high temperature so now I know and will not be staying at any other Marriott hotels in future. Also being a Suites hotel our room was not much bigger than the hotel room we stayed at the Holiday Inn and the beds weren't as comfortable as Holiday Inn.

I do not understand the #1 rating of this hotel. The employees are the only good thing about this hotel. Check in was pleasant the employees were great. Then I actually saw the room. I checked the bed, and there were yellow stains on it. We went downstairs and got another room. I went upstairs to check it, and it was worse than the first room. The room was dark, one light above the bed was burnt out another had spider webs in it. The bathtub was dirty, and then we checked the hotel bed. It had very large yellow stains on it. It was really nasty. I went downstairs and told them I wanted to check out. The employees offered to try another room but two nasty rooms at a hotel was enough. I will never stay here again.

We were visiting Penn State and chose this hotel because of its proximity to the university. It was very close to campus and there were plenty of restaurants nearby as well. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fine. We had a king suite with a sofa bed (the double bed rooms were sold out) and with the sofa bed open, it was a bit tight for the 3 of us, but we managed. Having the extra sink in the living area helped when the bathroom was occupied.

The best thing about this stay was the front desk staff. The two young women at the front desk were friendly and helpful. They gave us clear directions to a restaurant where we were meeting friends. Late at night, when we were preparing for bed, my daughter realized she would be cold on the sofa bed, so we called for an extra blanket. The front desk manager appeared with one within 5 minutes.
