Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stillsmellthemold Stay anyplace else
This is a very old, outdated facility. It has not been well cared for nor have there been updates that were done professionally. Every aspect of the facilities sleeping rooms is horrid.
The staff tries very hard but they are no match for the years of neglect and penny pinching that has transpired. Tear it don and start over please.

This is an older Holiday Inn Express that has been upgraded. The staff was very pleasant and always helpful. My room was clean and everything worked. The lighting and the fan in the bathroom needs to be considerably brighter and not as noisy. Also, the lighting in the room needs to be upgraded. I did get plenty of exercise by going up and down the steps to the 5th floor because the single elevator is the second slowest I have ever seen at a hotel. However, I would stay here again because of the staff and location.

Great experience, other than the water temperature not being hot enough for a hot shower. Other guests complained of this over breakfast as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Widener2017 Friendly staff and very accomodating...
I'm a Widener University School of Law student taking classes for four weeks/3 days a week and thought I'd try the Holiday Inn for the first week, and pending the outcome, perhaps I'd book for the following three weeks.. Long story short, I was very pleased with my accommodations and the staff is very pleasant... Needless to say, I booked the following three weeks...

The customer service from Shanell was fantastic. I love the usb/outlet on the nightstand, one should be added to every hotel room!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JAKDesigns Dogs in any room, 1 elevator, disinterested staff
Really disappointed in this holiday inn express. Staff was cold and unhelpful when I voiced my concerns about pets being in any room and 5th floor (yeah, right, dogs are holding it in while they wait for the one slow elevator). And the room stank of febreeze - to cover up dog urine? Did not get offered points when we checked in. Just an unpleasant stay overall.

We had a great stay. When I went to check out there was a discrepancy in the bill . Shanell looked at my reservation and corrected the problem right then, even apologizing that it took a couple of minutes to do it. She was friendly and took care of things. The hotel was nice and we had a great time. Thanks for being so attentive to our needs. A special shoutout to Shanell for being so professional and positive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lila1012 Old Building Previously a Comfort Inn with lots of smoke odor.
If you can't stand the smell of the stench left by cigarettes, do not go to this hotel.
We had to look at 3 rooms before taking the last one, because it was so late at night, and we were exhausted. The road noise is awful.

The breakfast items were good, except for the eggs. I have stayed at another Holiday Express and their eggs were bad also. Have someone scramble real ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dc5506 Outstanding!!!
I can't say enough good things. I was completely satisfied!! My Mother, Daughters and I were met with smiling faces, a clean room, soft beds. The only complaint came from my youngest daughter. The pool was outside, and since our stay was in April, she couldn't use it. :) The breakfast was WONDERFUL!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sparty 33 Great location and great staff.
I enjoyed my stay here. The staff could have used some increased support ( additional staff ) there were times when they were overwhelmed by people checking in. But, they were great in dealing with it. I liked this property and will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trainersteven Location Puts this Place to the TOP
First the Negatives, Hotel is being renovated so does not look the best on ground floor (for now) lots of highway traffic noise out front but it dies down around 11:30pm. Elevator is slow and they only have 1, when they have conference meetings parking is limited if the hotel is full. I did not receive anything as a Elite Member so I guess they don't offer things here.
Now for the POSITIVES!
Location, you have MANY places to eat from, even within walking distance.
Rooms are Extremely nice large (found some dirt & hair but not to bad# if you are a light sleeper like me request the backside of the hotel it will be much quiter for you. HVAC worked well and quiet #that's hard to find now days)
Staff was helpful, curteous and presented themselves well to guests.
The hotel is easy to get and out of.
USA today was delivered to my room each day something again several hotels are getting away from but I enjoy having it at my door each day.
TV has LOTS of channels offered, nice sound & clean picture
This will probably be my new Holiday Inn home when doing business in Harrisburg
I typically spend 200+ nights a year out of town and its hard to find hotels like this, once they finish with the renovations it will only get better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hornets Adequate hotel for price
Best part of stay was reasonably good breakfast and friendly front desk staff. Worst part was ignorant miserable early morning kitchen staff. I even said "Good morning to you too" after one of the women from kitchen staff was mumbling something about how ridiculous something was under her breath as she quickly stormed through the breakfast area. Parking was not very adequate (not enough spots) for guests as weather was bad and I had to park all the way around the building.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zeus1 super helpful staff
This was my first stay at a Holiday Inn Express. I came up for a funeral and thought I would try it out. From the time I walked into the front door I felt the care that the staff gives it guests. When I asked for directions the staff on duty were so helpful pointing me in the right direction. The breakfast bar had such a large selection of items to choose from and the selection of coffee got me going. I would definitely recommend this hotel as one of the best I've stayed in.

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.
