Our stay at the Homewood Suites in East Harrisburg had it all---beauty, comfort, location...location...location---all at an affordable price. Whenever we travel, my husband and I look to see if this hotel chain is nearby. It is terrific!

This time we were taking our 4 year old grandson to Hershey and the Amish country, and staying here made all of it accessible. We were impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Jonathan, at the front desk, checked us in quickly, and we were on our way to our suite in minutes. This is an amazing hotel for families. There is an indoor swimming pool, but they also have a beautifully landscaped and well maintained outside recreation area. My husband and grandson, who was ready for some exercise after 4 hours in the car, took advantage of the free sports by playing basketball and tapping a few balls at the putting green. There was no time for shuffleboard because dinner was being served in the dining area of the lobby. Yes, a complimentary meal is provided Monday-Thursday. We were to discover that breakfast and these dinners were wonderful. Our grandson, notoriously picky, did pass on the meatball subs, pasta, and salad, but Lois and the other person who maintained the food stations, dashed back into the kitchen and brought out a peanut butter sandwich and chips for the little one. When they saw our plight, they offered this without being asked. Always so helpful....everyone in the hotel seemed to be that way. Amazingly, our grandson managed to have room for dessert, chocolate cake! :-) If we had wanted, we could have walked across the side street to a super ice cream parlor. If we showed our hotel key card, we received a discount. There was a restaurant across the street as well.

Down the block was a Bass Pro. The hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, and the draw of both Hershey and the Amish country. We even went to an old-fashioned bowling alley and arcade that was 15 minutes away. I didn't know anyone still had duck pins, but they were perfect for our grandson, who is not old enough to handle the large balls.

Our room was amazing. We had two bedrooms and two baths, in addition to a sitting area and kitchen. There were three televisions! All was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The Homewood Suites are truly a home away from home!

As always, I looked at the Trip Advisor prior to booking a hotel for our family vacation. We have been going to Hershey Park for 4 years now and have stayed at several different hotels, including the Hotel Hershey. We are a family of four with two boys. The Homewood Suites was by far, the best family-oriented hotel we have stayed in while in Hershey. They had a good breakfast buffet, basketball court,a large indoor heated pool and fitness room... all of which we loved. We booked a 2 bed room suite, which was very spacious. It was like home away from home. The rooms were clean and the staff was warm and friendly. We had no trouble checking in and the hotel had discounted tickets for Hershey Park. The hotel was not crowded and very quiet. Eating was also convenient. There were several restaurants and an icecream parlor directly across from the hotel. All and all, we had a lovely time and will definitely come back again on our next visit. Thank you, Homewood Suites!

Our whole experience at the hotel was excellent.

Check in process was quick and easy, staff was very friendly.

Our room was gorgeous and very clean. High ceilings, full kitchen, spacious shower.

Pool was crowded but nice. Unfortunately did not get to experience the reception buffets, maybe next time.

We stayed at this hotel on our way North for Easter and then, on our way South 5 days later. We were a party of 3: 2 adults and 1 child that is 2 1/2 years old.

We arrived to see our name framed on the desk stating that we were the "Guests of the Day" which meant we received a complimentary bottle of water. Check-in was fast and very friendly. The room was clean - not huge but ok for our needs. My daughter spilled half of the water on the floor and wiped the floor with one of the white towels - surprisingly, the towel showed no dirt at all.

These rooms have a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, stove with 2 burners, utensils, coffeemaker, pots and pans, toaster and disposal. Our first room was on the second floor and was very quiet.

The pack-N-play bed for our daughter arrived with a housekeeper who didn't know how to put it together. She also didn't know where to get
bedding for it as well. Luckily, I brought my own sheet, blanket and pillow.

Food was good at the reception but they do not clean the tables during each meal session so if you arrive late, you will get stuck with really gross tables and the floors were smeared with food. They
REALLY need to work on that. The breakfast was not as good as the night reception but it was ok. One hot dish, cereal, oatmeal, fruit. There are places to eat right next door (Ruby Tuesday, Hollee's cafe)
and the Bass Pro Shops up the street has a great aquarium for kids to
check out.

This property also has a heated pool, a room they call a fitness center which only has 3 machines, a putting green, basketball hoop and shuffleboard court.

When we came back through on our return visit home, we got a room on the first floor which was really worn. There was a ring in the shower
from someone else's shampoo bottle - I think that was unacceptable so
we didn't use the tub.

Overall, this is an ok hotel, clean enough, no bugs just a little worn here and there. The staff was friendly and we would return to this hotel in the future.

Recent 1 night stay with family was great. Having recently stayed at a Residence Inn (btw, very nice), the first thing that stood out was the size of the suite. The bedroom w/ 2 queens was actually larger than some regular rooms that I have stayed in. The living area with desk, pullout sofa & reading chair/ottoman (very comfy) was also very spacious. The kitchen was very narrow, don't try 2 people in that area at the same time. But it had full array of appliances.

The dinner & breakfasts were good, everything fully stocked and something to please everyone. Friendly ladies were always around keeping an eye out & making sure everything was tidy & clean. The eating area/lobby was well designed and nice decor, more plush than I would expect for extended stay facility.

Indoor pool was a little on the cool side; kids jumped in & then quickly retreated to the hot tub which seemed the correct temp. Pool area quite expansive for an indoor, bet its nice during warmer months when the courtyard can also be enjoyed.

Staff at front desk very pleasant and friendly, spoke to us several times as we went in and out.

Pros: Size of room, newness & cleanliness of facility and friendly staff. Neat ice cream shop/pizza across parking lot.
Cons: Only 1 lamp in bedroom-difficult to see in corners. Beds were okay, but pillows were fuller/stiffer than I prefer. (I did not ask if they had any alternatives such as down- next time I will.)
Minor issue, did not interfere in overall stay.

Very pleasant experience, highly recommended.

I've stayed at many Homewood's and found this one in Hershey to be superb! It has the feel of a resort more than an extended stay hotel.

The hotel is new and is desgined to perfection. The lobby and rooms are decorated beautifully and the neds are comfortable.
The breakfast and dinner is outstanding and they always have many warm cookies avaialble after dinner!!!!

Our family found this Homewood to be best of all Homewood's we've stayed. It was also walking distance to the Harrisburg Mall and nice restaurants. Only a ten minute drive from Hersheypark too.

Wonderful hotel with great service and accommodations!

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip during mid-August 2006. The property was extremely clean throughout and the rooms were well appointed. The cost is a little on the high side, I paid $189/night.

The breakfast and the evening manager's reception was exceptional, as well as the staff. I'd stay here again, and could recommend to others to do the same.
