Had the pleasure of staying at this hotel this past weekend. Very clean room and I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The morning breakfast was good and the staff was very fast to replenish what was missing. I will definitely return here when visiting Harrisburg.

Stayed one night during a roadtrip. We arrived late, called ahead to confirm our reservation and all was good, no problems during checking in or out. The room decor was a little outdated, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Didn't hear any noise from other rooms or outside. The breakfast is okay, they had stuff like...

Good Day, Thank you for providing feedback on your "comfortable" stay. It appears you had a pleasurable visit with us. Our facility is a bit outdated however it has the classic look of most full service facilities in this area. One good thing about a classic hotel is that you won't hear noise from other guest rooms. They do not...

Good Day, We appreciate your constructive criticism of our facility. It is quite evident that we fell short on meeting your expectations. I strongly believe you caught us on an off night when other variables created some unfortunate scenarios for our valued guests. The central heating unit that supplies the whole facility was down for a short period of time....

We stayed in a two-queen bed room. The room was small and had a closet area by the door instead of a closet, like a 1970's-era motor hotel. But the room was clean, and the beds and linens were comfortable. The HVAC system was very quiet, and I had to listen closely just to hear it. The indoor pool is...

We stayed for an event being held at the Pa Farm Show. The room was clean and comfortable. Had a small snafu with dirty bed linens but it was quickly fixed. Breakfast was goid, fresh & hot. The only downfall was the amount of noise from the pool if your room was poolside.
