I stayed for 1 night and hopefully will stay again should my daughter choose to go to school here. The breakfast chooses were multiple will some great healthy choices. I used the fitness room.

HIE is located in a convenient location to Elizabethtown and the staff are friendly and courteous however the rooms are a bid drab and the carpet is filthy.

Staff was very pleasant and helpful, room was clean and comfortable although small. Nice big TV, comfortable king bed. Free wifi. Thought it was a little pricey at approx. $150 per night (it's just a regular hotel room), but if you are visiting the College there is a discount (the discount is only available through the hotel, not through central...

Given the older age of this hotel, the rates being charged are too high. It appears there are very few competitors in the immediate proximity which would explain how the management gets away with sky high rates for an outdated hotel. Musty smell, old furniture, awkward room layout, tiny bathroom, simply not up to IHG/HIE standards. Sheets had strange red...

I stayed at this establishment last night, and was awakened by the sound of a woman screaming at a man as she walked down the hallway. She was clearly heavily intoxicated, and kept screaming that she was the General Manager and that he needed to leaver "her hotel". The behavior that she expressed last night wouldn't be tolerated by a...

I always look to see if hotels have pools, especially when I take my granddaughters. I don't know how this slipped by. We arrived late and left early as wanted to go to a hotel that had a pool. This hotel had the average holiday inn breakfast, nothing wonderful. It was OK.

Came here for a wedding and Hershey Park Fun. The room was clean but had a damp smell to it.
