The hotel stay was alright. Pretty standard, nothing special, but also what we had expected for the price. Bed was not very comfortable. They were doing construction which was a tad inconvenient and caused some noise. My only complaint was that
there was a fairly large spider web and spider in the corner of the bathroom- suggesting that the room probably was not cleaned very recently or thoroughly :\
When we checked in were informed that there would be no running water for up to 24 hours and that the hotel had an infestation of stink bugs; we cancelled our room and moved to another hotel where we had no problems; we did not see the actual rooms.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
there were two competent restaurants within a quarter mile
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was clean, we had plenty of towels and everything worked.
The beds were a little hard but we slept well. There was a very clean pool and staff was wonderful. We recommend this hotel to anyone visiting in
the Harrisburg/Hershey area who wants to save money.

We ate at a diner called John's Diner. The food was wonderful, very reasonable and had huge portions.
The beeding and room was clean. The location was near Harrisburg Downtown which was perfect. The staff was nice as well.
The only bad part was they did not have an ironing board or iron or hairdryer. My friend had to give them his state I.D. as
collateral in order for him to borrow an iron and ironing board. I guess they did that because many people steal from them. I wish they could have been considerate enough to bring up the iron and board to our room. Our room was located on the second floor. My friend had to go to the main office, drag that stuff to the second floor to our room, and then drag that stuff back down stairs so he can get his I.D. back... I wish they could have at least brought it up to our room.
An other issue was that the sink did not have enough water pressure and was not putting out cold water. It was almost dripping with both faucets on all the way. This needs to be fixed.
Other than those two annoying problems, everything else was fine.
This hotel is right off the highway and in a bit of shady area for first impressions. The first room we were given had a really noisy ac unit, the sink and floors were permanently stained some brown color, the tv had no cable jack in the back,
only one bed was made, the other bed had some scabs still under the sheets and blood on the pillow, and to top it off the garbage can from outside left a horrible smell in the room.
Brought up the issues to the front desk and he was really nice about the whole issue and gave us another room. The room was better but was on the first floor andsince none of the doors at this place are set correctly, there are large gaps for bugs to come in--which they did. Since they have signs in the lobby specifically saying they can't do anything about the bug problem, we killed 6 bugs in an hour and decided to go to sleep.
Waking up the next morning was just as bad because both my wife and I had back pains afterwards from sleeping on the rock solid mattress. The shower has extremely low pessure and took about 10 minutes to even heat up.
I would not reccomend this to anyone, there are much nicer looking hotels just down the street so spring for the extra $20, because this place is not worth a second look.
