This is a great older property. Very well maintained You want have all the things that a new property will have. Did not see any free snacks or fruit available.

The pool is definitely a plus, the check in time should of been a little less long of the wait especially since the hotel barley had anyone in it, hotel rooms were spacious, 20 minute drive to Hershey park

The hotel looks run down and falling apart the room I had smelled like wet rug . There was no fridge or microwave in the room which is a first for me and the cot they bought to the room was disgraceful , it was like laying down on metal coils . NEVER AGAIN

The staff was friendly. The room we stayed in was very outdated and u saw the mold on the air conditioner unit and smelled it. No refrigerator in room or safe... paid $173 for the night and thought breakfast was included, and it wasn’t. No coffee maker in room... the pool however and grounds were beautiful. My kids enjoyed that and the jungle gym. Would stay here again, but would like a balcony room that is more up to date

I liked the pools. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. I was disappointed because i booked a pool side patio room and was given a room next to the parking lot. They did end up moving us to a room with a balcony but i would have liked the room i booked with the patio.

Property has seen better days. Pretty shabby. Worn carpet, peeling wallpaper, badly painted. The staff, however, was very nice.

20 minutes from Hershey Park. Outdoor pool is big and clean. Staff members are helpful and accommodating. Breakfast buffet is 11.99 per person, not worth it- should be included with stay. No coffee machine in room. Would stay here again

This hotel was set up perfectly for a family. Lots of kids, pool, ping pong tables. Rooms were large and hile a little warn, it appears the hotel is currently upgrading. Location was 15 minutes from hershey. There were restaurants close. It was a great price and great location.

Like I said it’s all about the kids they loved the pool and it was convenient close to Hershey Park I’ll be back thank you the staff at red lion was excellent

Nice hotel close to restaurants, clean rooms and friendly staff. Our only complaint is wished there was a coffee pot in the room and menus for the restaurant and other ones that would deliver.

Front desk slow and loathesome! Restaurant staff excellent

Purpose of my stay location prefect ease to airport and access to my room

Love the outdoor pool and playground!! The bar is a nice feature. Welcoming entrance area.

My family enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The kids enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools.

Staff was nice, pool was nice, food was ok, hotel needs a renovation!!! My friend forgot something in room and staff "has not found it" it was not a small item (bag of laundry)

The hotel was nice the staff was friendly and for the price there's a ton of cool amenities. My only downside was the room didn't have a refrigerator or microwave so we had no where to store the left over food the kids didn't eat nor microwave anything.

The Red Lion gave us accessibility to Hershey, Downtown Harrisburg and the airport. A large room and helpful staff. Location convenient but heavy traffic.

Property has seen better days. Pretty shabby. Worn carpet, peeling wallpaper, badly painted. The staff, however, was very nice.

Dear Dennis, We are sorry to learn our accommodations underwhelmed you - #regret. We have replaced carpets in our guest rooms and 90% of our hallways. We will be finishing the balance of the hallways during the week of December 15th. We will walk the property and repair the peeling wall vinyl. We appreciate your business and kind words regarding our staff. Kindest regards, Randall J. Stuart, CHA, CHME General Manager
