3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

nice hotel and staff. clean and good for families. Restaurant was nice but staff did not know how to run a business, 1 hour wait for breakfast. not prepared for big groups, food on tables, lobby manager had to help, 3 people in kitchen and slow service.

We booked last minute because we decided to make our visit to Hershey Park a 2 day trip. It was a little out of the way but not too bad. Room was clean and bed was comfy. I would recommend this hotel. The breakfast was decent as well. We bought the breakfast plan with the room from the website and it was well worth it. Even at the $7 that they were charging, the breakfast would have been worth it.

We booked a room on the "quiet side" with a king bed for 2 nights. The bed was positioned several inches from the wall on one side, making it very difficult to get in on that side. The space on that side, which held a tiny nightstand holding the clock/radio, was so limited that an average man's foot could not fit to access the bed or clock from the side of the bed.. We were aware that a full breakfast was not included in the price of the room, but we were disappointed to have to pay $6.95 for a poor quality continental breakfast. (Very stale little cinnamon bun). The tip we left the first night for housekeeping was taken, but the person left behind an empty water bottle, tissues, and old newspapers. The used, empty body wash bottle and cap were left in the shower, along with a sliver of soap. The air conditioner cycled so loudly complete with gurgling water that we were awakened throughout the night. The room was warm, we were unable to get the temp below 70 degrees. The odd bed configuration made it impossible to view a portion of the TV from the bed. There was no closet in the small room, and the screen was blocked by the cabinet.There was a love seat in the room which was scruffy, and in the day light revealed dirty arms. This was our first time traveling to this area, and now know there are many other hotels in the area. We paid $300. for 2 nights, plus breakfast fees. The room was #105.

Had to fly to Mechanicsburg on short notice for a funeral. Selected this hotel as a part of a "vacation package." Before I write my comments, the major criticisms are no fault to this specific operation and staff. One can easily see it is a hotel that is managed by a set of extremely high standards, The location is not desirable. The hotel is close to a busy four lane, but more importantly, you have to go down a road past some warehouses to get to it. I know from experience, this road quickly floods after any major rain. It was late when we got there. The gentleman behind the desk was excellent in every way. Other than these comments, it is your typical Courtyard by Marriott. The rooms are always well equipped, modern and ultra clean. Gotta love the standard Marriott Speakman shower. Honestly, I don't like the layout of the rooms. They are narrow, somewhat cramped and the tv is never at a good location for one to watch from the bed. All in all, a short but very acceptable stay.

Left my glasses they called immediately and mailed them back

I stayed 1 night. The room was ready and clean. everything worked. I'd stay there again. It was kind of hard to find.

My husband and I stayed for one night while we visited a friend at camp hill. The staff was wonderful, the room was beautiful and extremely clean (I am very paranoid about hotel rooms and could not have been happier with the condition of our room) the pool and hot tub were lovely and the hotel is very close to restaurants and local malls. Also (should a visit to a loved one at camp hill be the reason for your stay as well) the hotel was only minutes from the prison and very easy to navigate. Will definitely stay again!

Good room, nice large breakfast offerings with omlette bar. Hotel was quiet on a weekend in early December. I was there on business and several family members visited. The hotel was decorated for the holidays. very nice.

We have stayed at a number of Courtyard by Marriott Hotels and this was as good as any that we have stayed at. The service could not have been more warm and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. The value was excellent/

Hotel rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was decent in the morning. We woudl stay there again and thought it was a good value.

Although the price was right and the hotel was nice. i was disappointed to learn that we only got breakfast for two people even though there were three of us booked.

We only stayed one night but it worked well for our purposes.

This Hotel does not Have a FREE breakfast included in the price of your stay it coast you $10.99 per person. (after talking to the manager he did give me a complementry one)

The rooms were large, clean and well equipped with frig, microwave, and coffee pot. The location was close to restaurants and the expressway. The included breakfast was the best we have ever had!

Very accommodating

If you are looking for a place to stop near the highways going east, this hotel was more reasonably priced than many other options in the area, the room was comfortable and the breakfast was better than the usual continental breakfasts and had some limited service which made it feel like a real upgrade. It did not take us much off our route towards new york, but was a lot better than Carlisle. It is a smoke free property

We had a beautiful room that included free breakfast for two. It was close to restaurants and the college campus we were visiting.

Nice

We came to Penn. on a weekend getaway @ Hershey Park!! [...] had the best deal online!! We loved the Hotel, it was very clean and the staff was Great!! They were very friendly, even my three year old son made a comment "that was a nice lady". We will def. be staying here again!!

Courtyard was conveniently located, extremely clean, and staffed with very friendly people. I'm glad to have chosen this location.
