Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mlee22889 Terrible Breakfast
I travel a lot for work and the majority of my stays are with a Holiday Inn or affiliate. I must say this hotel by far had the worst breakfast (taste,quality,service) of any IHG Hotel I have ever stayed at. One morning there was about 10 expired milks in the cooler. The staffer working the breakfast mentioned "its only microwave food you're not going to get 5 star quality." Also the wallpaper in my bathroom was peeling off.

Clean room, but pillows need to be replaced with "soft" and "firm" types instead of the flat ones they have there now.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KathyK654 Excellent staff, very nice room, beds were very comfortable
We had a smoking room, which we requested, however, there was just the room air conditioner which circulated the same air, not fresh air from outside. Other than that, the room was very nice. All appliances worked and we didn't get disturbed by hallway noises.

Comfortable room, but the corners of room looked like it had been missed. A more thorough cleaning would help.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RS20 Cleanliness
The hotel staff was accommodating but the hotel's "deep" cleanliness and amenities were substandard. The bathroom did not have a fan, so the entire room absorbed the scent of the bathroom and ceiling above the shower had enormous amounts of mildew. The room was missing an alarm clock and the TV did not work properly. Between unplugging, resetting, and playing around with remote and TV buttons, the TV would eventually work. It was obvious the hotel had a surface renovation; however, it is in dire need for a full renovation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 4Peter Never Stay At This Hotel
We had booked our room and guaranteed it with a credit card. We encountered some difficulties and took longer than expected to drive to Harrisburg PA. When we arrived the night clerk had our folio out, ready to go. Since we were driving to move our son into his dorm, we had a number of items that we were not comfortable leaving overnight in the bed of a pickup. We hauled ourselves and luggage to room 305. The keycards did not register, so back down to the front desk. The cards were re-activated so we returned to room 305. No luck so we once again headed back down to the front desk. At this time the night clerk discovered that our room had been re-booked. No problem, he just changed our reservation to room 517. Once again we boarded the elevator and hauled ourselves and our luggage up to room 517. This time we could not gain entry because the security bar was on the door. Back down to the front desk. Back upstairs again to room 517 where the clerk broke the security bar off the door so that it would open. From time of entry to this hotel to successfully gaining access to our now unsecured room took 45 minutes.
Up at 7;30 to grab a fast breakfast, find a manager to complain and then continue the drive to school. The breakfast bar had been almost cleaned out of food, the tables were littered wth garbage and no one appeared to be on duty. Okay, maybe we grab a black coffee and a bagel and pull off the road later for breakfast. Time to find the manager. No luck. No manager on site, but Tiffany comes in around lunch time. "No you can not leave a message for her to contact you, but here is her number if you care to call."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SiTam Nice room, but only one elevator.
Our double bed room was nice, spacious, and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was satisfying for the whole family. Only con was the dining area for breakfast was too small. It got crowded very fast and people were all over the place. However, the staff rectified the situation by opening up the conference room for additional seating. Lastly, this hotel only has one elevator and it's rather small and slow. Once we waited 20 minutes for a lift. Otherwise our experience was adequate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by samiam07 Almost Perfect...but Not Quite
The price i paid was excellent. However, the bathtub did not drain. by the time i was finished showering, i was standing in 6 inches of bath water. same with the sink. plus, the room had a very damp and musty odor. that was in great contrast to the lobby which smelled excellent and looked beautiful. the a/c worked great. had somewhat of an issue getting the wifi to work but once it did, it worked fine. the room was beautiful, however, i'd like to make a suggestion...an anti-room would make the room even better. when you have more than one person trying to get ready...having a room outside the bathroom where someone could finish getting ready would be awesome; for hair drying, make-up application, etc. Also, extra electric plugs. in this day and age where everyone has cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc., there just weren't enough places to plug things in. plus, if someone wants to bring a dvd player for whatever reason, those plugs are not accessible on the television. not all of us want to pay between 10 and 13 bucks to rent a movie.

I've been staying in this hotel for almost a year now. As a contractor, I travel a lot and whenever I'm in Harrisburg, I always stay in this hotel. The value for the money is great and the hotel staff are very nice specially Venessa and Brandy of the front desk.

The hotel was very nice and comfortable. The staff was very friendly but I had an incident when my spouse called my room and both of us could here the front desk talking, and we were not able to talk to each other due to our not being connected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LJ2013 Nice hotel, annoying man at desk
This is a nice hotel. We stayed in it while visiting hershey. It was easy to get back and forth from it to hershey and the price was much lower than closer places. My only complaint with the room is the size of the bathroom. It was tiny and difficult to maneuver.
The reason I dd not like this hotel was the incredibly annoying man working the desk both weekend mornings. He was there during breakfast and was very loud and obnoxious. Breakfast on Monday was a pleasant experience without him. Others eating on the weekend mornings also omplained.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BethWad Horrible Stay This Time
I have stayed at this property numerous times over the last three years & this was by far the worst.
My television didn't work & it took 3 calls & 2 hours before maintenance arrived, just to be told the TV was shot. The door didn't close without being slammed & to ad to this I am an eliteember with IHC & personally seen people walking in given better rates at AAA which I had as well. Then I was told that my rate is higher on my 2nd night (10 difference) & that she would keep me at the same as my compensation for not having a television for 14 hrs.
I don't feel the situation was handeled properly & not sure that I will ever return to this location after the way I was treated on my last stay!

Again, the staff makes you feel right at home, knows your name and couldn't be more helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sandi26 Front Desk was great
We went with two other families to Hershey for a few days and Brittany and Scottie were just fantastic at the front desk. My opinion of the person who set up/refilled the breakfast is less than favorable because her attitude needs a little adjustment but otherwise the facility itself, the rooms, and pool were very clean. I would only recommend that this facility adds another washer and dryer since so many families come through in the summer and to wait for a washer/dryer all night while on vacation when there are accidents is truly an inconvenience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NCpreacher nice room - but a bit pricey!
Stayed at H.I.E. while visiting family. Spent almost 2x the cost as another H.I.E. in WV on way up for basically same amenities. Bed WAS great - but not sure it was worth the upcost. Great location & nice staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dnbsomers I have some concerns with this hotel
My first concern is that the smoke alarm on the 3rd floor was covered with a plastic bag. This is not safe.
My second concern/observation was when we were checking out, the person behind the counted keep backing away from the counter, when asked questions, his responses were to quiet to be heard. I had to request that he repeat himself several times.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor37 Confusion on checkout
Even though I prepaid for two rooms, my in-laws received a bill the morning of our checkout. The front desk couldn't figure it out and there was no manager on site until the afternoon, well after most people would have checked out. Had to leave and resolve by phone later that day.

Great workout room. Did 8 miles on the treadmill and it worked like a champ. Room was clean, neat, and comfortable. Staff was friendly and nice. I did not get to experience breakfast because of an early flight, but free cookies were a bonus.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by happymom95 Very disappointed.
We stayed at several Holiday Inn Expresses on our recent trip and this is the only one to which we would absolutely not return. We had serious security concerns -- at one point we returned to the hotel and multiple doors, including ours, were wide open and no cleaning crew was visible. Further, we were not informed the second night of our stay would be $50 higher and have not been able to have the matter resolved, or even addressed after multiple calls to the general manager. I have not received any response to my phone calls or emails. Very, very disappointing.
