Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff was great, the pub for dinner was not. The room was not thoroughly cleaned from the toilets to the pillows. Floor not vacuumed and slow draining tub. Very disappointed and will not stay again. To say that we were disappointed is an understatement. I've stayed at other Best Westerns and they were significantly better than this one.

The hotel lobby is absolutely beautiful. You can not go wrong with the Irish pub as this is my second stay here and have yet to have a bad entree or drink. This is my second time staying here for a corporate event. Last year was wonderful. I had a room with a balcony and the bed was plush and... More

From the exterior, the hotel looks like a basic exit ramp hotel. When you approach the lobby, the twinkling lights and rich wood accents let you know you may have made a good choice. Family rooms are huge, beds comfy and quality amenities are offered.

The Best Western Premier in Harrisburg boasts clean and spacious rooms with a very courteous and gracious staff. This venue really exceeded my expectations for a Best Western. I wish I could have stayed longer, actually.

Spent 3 days here for a conference and one overnight as I live nearby. The staff was fantastic. Food was good. Room was clean and comfortable. Quiet even with a soccer team and another group in house. Calvin was a tremendous help to a fellow conference attendee whose car battery died. Teresa a banquet staff member was so nice going...

Hotel was very nice, comfy beds, and quiet on the seconds floor. It was clean and nice. Bathroom was small and the shower faucet was very hard to twist. Shower had great pressure. The pub had good food and drinks, but the service was not so good. Slow and forgot garnishes on drinks and seemed like he didn't really know... More

Love staying in this hotel when I am in the Harrisburg area. They do a wonderful job in catering and ballroom staff and waiters...The sleeping rooms are nice as well. Might need some updates slowly as wear and tear...

This BW Premier property does it very well. Near the capitol city, but easily accessible from the highway. Plenty of parking on site for regular stays or conferences. Several exterior entrances make access to rooms more convenient. Hotel and rooms appear to recently renovated, a King + sofa room had a large shower, taking the entire tub area. Rooms are... More

I stayed at this property because I was having a medical procedure done and it was close to the doctor's office. This way, my wife could drop me off, and then return to the hotel rather than wait in the waiting area. I had stayed here several years ago and the place was showing its age then. Apparently, they completely... More

I have stayed here a number of times and each time was really good. The restaurant has good appetizers. Not a bad place to go. The location didn't have much going on but enough around to get to things. The staff were extremely nice and helpful.
