Be mindful there are two La Quintas in Harrisburg so put the address in the GPS...I made the mistake Of typing La Qunita Harrisburg Pennsylvania into my GPS which took us to the other older hotel. I obviously made the mistake so Im not blaming the hotel just a friendly suggestion. I was told people mix the two all the time.
The front desk evening lady was very nice and helpful 100% professional! The lobby was nice esp. For such a cheaper line of hotels. I noticed people cleaning constantly during the day and it seems it would take constant upkeep to ma rain all the glass and metal.
The breakfast area which stocked hot chocolate, tea, and coffee almost 24/7 which was a nice touch since we went to Hershey Christmas Candylane. It was nice to save on expensive park hot chocolate knowing we could get it a oh hotel. This is one of those things that doesn't cost the hotel much and makes you want to come back.
The breakfast was standard. I would say Holiday Inn express has a much better breakfast but there rooms were twice the cost so that's not exactly a "free" breakfast. I would say adding scrambled eggs would be inexpensive and would really raise the bar as much of what is offered are carbs and no protein. The waffles were very good.
The rooms were modern and super clean. My only concern was that there were no comforters or heavier blankets which in winter was disappointing.
The laundry room although advertised as a feature was not available...which was disappointing as I spilled milk on my jacket and had to just buy a new jacket or smell all weekend. This is something they need to expedite as they have many people traveling with children... laundry facilities are something I look for.
The pool was warm and clean...not too much chlorine like at other hotels in the area. However the jacuzzi was broken many people tried turning it on and other then the filter nothing was coming on. I understand these break however we were there almost a month ago and I see this is still in issue in more recent reviews. If you need a full functioning jacuzzi after a long car ride this place is not for you.
This place is like 10 minutes literally down the street from Hershey! That was awesome!
Overall the high point were location and font desk staff...style of room...the low points...crappy jacuzzi, no warm comforters, no laundry room.... I would go back if the price was right...the potential for a favorite hotel is there just need to be more detail orientated :-D
