Our experience at this hotel was a nice one. The amenities were good: Game room, bar, indoor pool and the staff was very friendly. Our room was nice, however the whole hotel needs an upgrade decorum wise to bring it into the year 2012

Gordon Ramsay - Here's a Kitchen Nightmare for you!!!

Our family of 6 stayed in 2 rooms at this hotel while visiting Hershey Park. The rooms were clean although not updated at all. We decided to eat at the "Great American Grill". They were also hosting a wedding rehearsal dinner. When we got there - they had only 2 menus for 6 of us to share. When we finally ordered - they burnt my step son's ribs and had to start over. When the meal finally arrived, my medium done stead was shoe leather. We had them redo my steak and 30 minutes later - everyone else was done. By time my steak came out - I was no longer hungry. My husband complained to the manager who told us the chef was overwhelmed with the Wedding Party and some others had called off and left them short staffed. She had only been with them a mere 10 days. As the manager walked away from our table, the woman at the next table stopped over and told my husband "Kudos" for him saying something as the service at the restaurant that night was horrible. They didn't charge us for our meal and gave us free breakfast passes for the next day (that's a whole other story!). Overall - we will not stay there again!

Hershey Park Visit

The staff was friendly and responsive. The sleeping area/bedding was very clean. However the bathroom was full of mold. and the tub seemed to have the enamel scrubbed off, the floor of the tub was all stained. There was no light over the tub. The bathroom fan didn't suck moisture out at all. So if you have 5 people taking a shower in the morning, the whole place steams up. Our air conditioning didn't work the first night. I called the front desk the next day and they immediately sent up a maintenance tech and fixed the problem. Very limited cable channels. no mini fridge/microwave. The most upsetting feature was that one side of the hallway is smoking rooms and the other side is not...causing the hallways to stink of cigarette smoke. The smell was even in our non smoking room. They should really change it so that smokers are all together. Our room did have functioning windows, but there was a horrible sewage smell outside. We ate breakfast there twice. It was great!It's close to the park and right off the interstate but the dirty bathroom and cigarette smoke are deal breakers for me. We won't be back.

Holiday Innn Harrisburg, PA

Room 307 was set up with the internet connection on the night stand and not on the desk. Bathroom sink was chipped and stained. TV remote was broken and tapped together. At every hotel that I can recall and I do stay in a few, coffee has always been available to hotel guests at all times, but not at this one.

Has an old feel

My room was not ready when I arrived. I was offered another though. Pool area felt old, and musky. Indoor pool closes at 10pm, which was slightly disappointing. Breakfast buffet was good, nothing extraordinary. They are in the process of renovating rooms, but only 10% is currently completed. Overall a fair hotel, nothing wonderful, but not horrible.

Nice hotel but rooms need work

We stayed at the Holiday Inn to go to Hersheypark. We were only there for one night and we got a great rate. We had two rooms. The one wasn't even cleaned and we had to request a new room. The other was supposedly cleaned but the bathroom was pretty nasty. The ceiling had work done that was never completed. There was mold spots on the tile and ceiling as well. There were also hairs everywhere which is nasty. The beds were pretty uncomfortable.
