This is a great mid point pit stop from Boston to NC. Great value very pet friendly (outside entrances for easy in and out w dogs). Great value. Lovely lobby nice very decorated for Christmas. And a "pseudo" irish bar for eats and drinks. What's not to love!

This is the 5th or 6th year that we have stayed at this hotel, and it is exceptional. When you walk into the lobby, the tone is set for the entire experience. Fruit water available 24 hours a day, coffee, excellent hot buffet breakfast, Beds super comfortable, very clean, and I am looking forward to being there next year.

We always enjoy our stay at the Harrisburg, PA Best Western. The staff has the best Customer Service of any hotel I've stayed. The hotel is showing a few signs of age, but overall, it is a great value with staff that is very attentive to every issue and makes sure your expectations have been met or exceeded.

The staff was great, the pub for dinner was not. The room was not thoroughly cleaned from the toilets to the pillows. Floor not vacuumed and slow draining tub. Very disappointed and will not stay again. To say that we were disappointed is an understatement. I've stayed at other Best Westerns and they were significantly better than this one.

The hotel lobby is absolutely beautiful. You can not go wrong with the Irish pub as this is my second stay here and have yet to have a bad entree or drink. This is my second time staying here for a corporate event. Last year was wonderful. I had a room with a balcony and the bed was plush and...

From the exterior, the hotel looks like a basic exit ramp hotel. When you approach the lobby, the twinkling lights and rich wood accents let you know you may have made a good choice. Family rooms are huge, beds comfy and quality amenities are offered.

The Best Western Premier in Harrisburg boasts clean and spacious rooms with a very courteous and gracious staff. This venue really exceeded my expectations for a Best Western. I wish I could have stayed longer, actually.

Quiet even with a soccer team and another group in house. Calvin was a tremendous help to a fellow conference attendee whose car battery died. Teresa a banquet staff member was so nice going...

Hotel was very nice, comfy beds, and quiet on the seconds floor. It was clean and nice. Bathroom was small and the shower faucet was very hard to twist. Shower had great pressure. The pub had good food and drinks, but the service was not so good. Slow and forgot garnishes on drinks and seemed like he didn't really know...
