Recent guest reviews

Hotel was very clean and in a great location. We had a huge uhaul truck with us and we felt very safe leaving it over night. Everything is close by, restaurants, shopping, gas stations, highways, etc.. they have a great breakfast buffet, so worth it! Beds were very comfortable and room was super clean. I would definitely stay here again and I will recommend it to my family and friends when they come to visit us from out of town.

The hotel is little off from family attractions in the area but still close enough with not a long drive. We're able to get a suite that was huge and accommodated family of 5 easily. the rooms are getting old. nothing serious but renovation needs to get into process. Breakfast was OK and the pool was nice.

Stayed here over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The bed and piillow were extremely comfortable and the breakfast offered something for everyone. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful (Thank you, Devin!). Lots of restaurants in the area.

Had a great stay at this hotel. Location is great with tons of restaurants nearby. Room was clean and comfortable (except the beds crackled!!) Fridge is room was a half fridge, large enough to accommodate some groceries and beverages! Shower had good pressure although the sink was a bit awkward and a little too high. The amenities were very nice (Bath & Body Works) There was a variety of hot and cold items for breakfast with yoghurt and fresh fruit. Dining area was relaxed and comfortable and coffee and tea was available all day/night in the lounge. Coffee was pretty good :) They have a huge parking lot and patio area out back by the pool. Staff was great (Devin was awesome and very helpful! Kudos to him!) Thank you to staff and management.

We stayed here while traveling through on the Memorial Day weekend holiday. Overall a good stay and just far outside of Harrisburg enough that it's not too pricey and close enough that you can still do whatever you want in Harrisburg. Quite a few positives. Location was quite convenient, both to major roadways and to things like food and gas. Room was clean and well-maintained; bathroom was tidy and all the faucets worked; Internet was reasonably fast and reliable. No noise issues and front desk staff were quite polite. Downsides were that the mattresses on the beds were older and way too soft. The breakfast food was lackluster. And bizarrely, the main entrance to the hotel is actually in the back, but the sign telling you this is only visible once you've actually started toward the back

The room was clean and comfortable and pet friendly.Staff was great and the food was very good.They serve pancakes, sausage,eggs,muffins,cinnamon rolls cereal fruit etc.Coffee and tea is 24 hours and the tv has all the basic channel and HBO.I would recommend this hotel

We were heading south on Route 81, and I wanted to get on the other side of Harrisburg to spend the night; thus, avoiding have the early morning traffic going into Harrisburg. We got off exit 61 and found this holiday in express. we got a great rate, and the room was very comfortable. We definitely want to put this on our must spend the night hotel list when we're traveling through the area.

When our other hotel (Park Inn Raddison) was too awful to actually to stay in...we went up the road to this very cozy hotel. Lelaine who was on the desk at night, was simply lovely and helpful every step of the way...she and the other staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast was a huge disappointment, stale bagels, eggs that looked like pancakes...we opted for English muffin and and coffee,nothing else looked good. That said, the room was comfortable, good bathroom and all very clean. Would stay again.

We needed a hotel to stay at for one night to attend my daughters graduation. Based on the close proximity to the college I chose the Holiday Inn Express. The front desk people were very nice and helpful, even when I called several times to ask questions. The lobby area was very clean and well maintained. Our room was a two queen size bed with tv, microwave, and small fridge. It was very clean and well maintained. Bathroom was roomy and clean. Looked like it was recently updated. Free wifi, and a fitness room as well on premises. Breakfast is served everyday from 7-10 am. Very nice array of breakfast foods. We were very pleased with our stay here and plan on booking again when we come down in the summer. It is located on the Carlisle Pike and there is quite a bit of traffic at times, and there are many stores and restaurants nearby as well. The only thing this hotel does not have is a bar area, but that was not a big deal to us. The rates for the hotel are very reasonable as well. I would recommend this hotel as our overnight stay was very nice.

I travel 200+ days a year. The hotel was clean and comfortable. What makes this location stand out is the employees. From the front desk to housekeeping I don't think I've met a more outgoing, personable staff. Always friendly and smiling. Such a pleasure to come back to our room and be met with a smile. Truly home away from home.
