Not many choices in E-Town to stay. This place is clean, and comfortable. Nice staff. Would stay again when in E-Town. Offered free breakfast but did not take advantage of it. Typical business travel type of hotel.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback on your stay. We would be happy to have you back when you are in the Elizabethtown area. When you do come this way again we highly recommend the cinnamon rolls from our breakfast, even if you take it to go. Have a great day.

Stayed at this place and really thought it exemplified what you expect from a place such as this. Rooms very clean and comfortable. WIFI everywhere, coffee 24/7, very friendly staff.

This is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting Elizabethtown College- they sometimes have deals - so be sure to call the hotel directly. The staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is hearty- with lots of options. Only downside is it can be pricey - especially if it is homecoming weekend. For the budget traveler consider looking...

The front desk staff were not unfriendly nor very warm. My wife and I were given a room adjacent to the highway where trucks made an overwhelming noise. Even as club members the room rate was probably the highest in the area. We though we had a one bedroom suite but the room turned out to be a king suite...

This hotel is just like the other HIE's we have stayed at in Pennsylvania. Very friendly and helpful staff, a clean and well appointed hotel, plenty of parking and a very good breakfast. The bed is quite comfortable and the air handling in the room is very quiet. We certainly will stay here again.

While the price is high given the location, the staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. The included breakfast was sufficient and check in/out was quick and painless. I liked the fact that breakfast was open for an extended amount of time.

The place is ok but quite expensive. This is because there is little competition in the area. There is an old motel near by. The staff was fine. Breakfast was basically the same that you get in the $90-$100 range places. The parking lot is not easy to navigate if you have mobility problems. The hotel must have a lot...
