Comfort Inn Riverfront

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is located very close to the downtown area, and on the river. The rooms are good, beds are comfy and rooms have microwaves and refrigerators. The wifi in my room didn't work at all, despite a fairly strong signal. I ended up booking a different hotel the following week, as I burned up all of the data on my cell phone to compensate. I also had a family emergency prior to arrival, so I called to let them know that I would be arriving the following day. They could not have cared less, and charged me a no-show fee at full price for the night. Way to be compassionate Comfort Inn...

The noise from the hallways to outside, you can hear everything! Could hear people's conversations as if they were standing in our room, the washing machine down the hall, and the noise outside as well. Not very well insulated to reduce any sound whatsoever. The bathroom door had stuff splashed on the back door that looked as if it had been there for awhile. Bed was comfortable but the noise kept us up all night.

As a vendor at the Farm Show, I needed a hotel room close by. Comfort Inn was only minutes away. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The first night I set the heat for 64 degrees but it ended up being 74 degrees, too hot for good sleeping. The second night I turned it to cool instead and slept better. The breakfast had a variety of choices; unfortunately, there wasn't any whole milk or half and half for my coffee--just sweetened artificial cream or reduced milk. Minor but disappointing. The woman at the reception desk was friendly. I would stay here again.

Staying at this hotel for 6 years in a row. The only reason I am staying there - proximity to relatives' house. During this and last year stays lost a night of sleep due to late parties held by local alcoholics attracted by the low room price. Had to call office many times and deal with police.

stayed there last year at same time, found article of clothing in dresser drawer. I was moved to another room. this time all was fine, no problems. Good breakfast quick.

Business overnight. Quick check-in, reasonable pet fee, riverfront room, walking distance to restaurants and green way, quick check out. Don't let the exterior fool you. This is a great place to stay, for one night or a week. Will definitely return when I Harrisburg.

We were delighted with the Comfort Inn Riverfront. The bed was comfortable, the room very clean. The room was small but it was just the two of us and was just right. The bathroom and shower were great. We'll go back!

The stay was good. The bed room was great. The only thing missing is a nice bathroom Vent / Fan to allow steam to be released.

Nice clean hotel, the comfort and noise depend on the room in which you are staying they are not all the same. The front desk person can be super nice, other times not so much. We go there because of the quality/price.

Clean, comfortable room near major hwys. The only problem was my GPS pick up a different location based upon the address that was given. After I called the motel, they gave me another address that got me to the correct location.

Our shower was so broken it was unusable. No one came to fix it, and we could not get a price break because of the problem. Downtown Harrisburg is easily accessible on foot from this location.

The hotel had the location we wanted by the river. Our room was on the noisy side with traffic and parking lot noise. People seem to forget there are other guests trying to sleep. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was comfy. Breakfast was popular and coffee and tea were always available in the lobby and in our room. We walked to the Capitol and restaurants. We could have walked to City Island easily. Overall a good experience.

A little pricey, but very nice. Clean, comfortable, professional, great staff, great location for a busy capitol city. Easy drive to find and easy drive to depart the city.

The room was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious and the lady working at the breakfast area was good at her job. I will stay here again in the future.

Nice place to stay and very friendly staff. Highly recomended place

I had a great experience at this hotel, the staff was very friendly and the room was very cute.We only stayed one night, so we didn't ask for much. But what we wanted, we got. Down the street was a little bit of a sketchy area, but that is nothing they can control. If I drive the opposite way- nothing but an amazing view and a beautiful little town. P.S the breakfast was amazing!

We have stayed here a few times and have always enjoyed our stay, room is always clean, friendly staff, nice breakfast, thanks again!

I had a great time, it was located in a very nice area.

Everything was fine for what we needed. Had a good nights sleep.

Room was Too HOT!! It was difficult to sleep on first floor near the front desk and it was horrible everyone walking by were making noise in the hallway starting from 6am to 9am. Free Breakfast couldn't find a seat and had to take the food to the room. Too many guests trying to get breakfast. The pool was okay but not enough umbrellas with chairs to lounge. The price was fair. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
