Average middle of the line budget hotel. Room was clean but in desperate need of a update. No flat screen tv, old wall paper, dingy lighting. For the price u can't complain to much. I have stayed at far worse hotels.

We went in halves with our friends for a 2-night stay while we were in town for the huge RV show. 2 couples in a room with 2 Queen beds (room 204). The room was decent size and had a fridge, micro and large tv. The negatives: of the 2 guys behind the counter at check in, one was wearing...

Traveling from Chicago to Philadelphia requires me to charge my Tesla every 250 miles. Seeing my next Supercharge pit stop is at Harrisburg, I checked out the hotel nearby. There is Fairfield Inn by Marriott or Econo Lodge. With about $30 difference, I decided to save a few bucks and choose Econo Lodge. The old saying goes "you get what...

Wow! In not a good way! Upon arriving we were greeted with a yell from the office, with three hellos back and forth until they came out. Once the attendant came to the desk he got lost in his cellphone before he fully checked us in. The room was dingy with a broke dead bolt on the door, soapy scum...

This was probably the smallest hotel I have ever stayed at, but the rooms were VERY roomy, clean and new. The price was great too. The staff was also kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again

I stayed at this place a few times when it was a Motel 6. However I quit staying there because despite claiming to be pet friendly, I could seldom stay there for the Harrisburg dog show without being hassled about my dogs (who are very well behaved, small, and quiet, and in all my 15 yrs of dog showing have...

Stayed here overnight before a meeting. The front desk clerk was friendly and efficient. The room was very clean, but we had an issue with a phone that wouldn't stop flashing, and the front desk clerk came up and switched out the phone. Then, one of the light bulbs over the bed wouldn't work. We switched the bulb from the...

Room was clean and rather spacious. There is only one ice machine and vending machine which is all on one floor. The hotel seemed new but you can tell they are using used equipment. All in all it was not a bad stay. If your on a budget then this is the place to go while in Harrisburg or Hershey.

Unexpectedly had to look for a place last minute. Staff was really nice and accommodated us. Arrived on a Thursday night and rented a room on 4th floor. We were unsure if we would also stay at hotel on Friday night, but since our room was already pre-reserved for Friday night the staff held a different room for us to...

Stayed here with my service dog, which I had small issues with, but just the staff questioning that she was a service dog. Hotels really need to brush up on the ADA act. The room was clean-ish, but everything seemed old and worn. There is a bar adjacent to the hotel, which I didn't have much of a problem with,...
