“Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Dining at the Holiday Inn restaurant while staying here was peaceful, enjoyable and we got our food fast. The food was good and the waitress that served us (Ariel S) was extremely friendly and treats all customers very well and gets them whatever they need. I will definitely be eating here and staying here again next time I come to Pennsylvania for Hershey Park.

Attended a baseball tournament in Hershey and one of the Mom's selected this hotel to stay. Usually the Airport Hotels are basic however we were pleasantly surprised with the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East. We stayed in a suite which was huge and the AC was ice cold. The Hotel offered many different activities which our children took advantage of such as the tennis courts, playground both indoor and outdoor pools. The adults hung by the pool and used the convenience drink store right off the pool. The staff was outstanding especially Chad in reservations. There was an on-site bar/restaurant and it was close to many other restaurants and Hershey Park. I would definitely return, GREAT STAY!!

I picked this hotel because of the great reviews and was thrilled that the rate here was considerably less than what we would have paid to stay in Hershey. It certainly is convenient enough to the Park that it is worth the drive for the less expensive price but our rooms were very disappointing. The carpets badly needed cleaning or replacement and the bathrooms weren't the cleanest. We were so disappointed that we found another hotel for the second night of our stay in the area. Perhaps they are in the process of updating rooms and our hall and rooms have not yet been done but our experience did not match the reviews I read prior to our stay.

Dear Liketotravel33,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent experience with us. We are sorry to hear you had a less than pleasant stay with us, and as a result, decided to check-out a day early – my sincere apologies. Your disappointment is humbling, and serves as a wakeup call to our entire team about the importance of following through on our daily room inspections more diligently. I will review these correctable items noted in your review with the housekeeping department to ensure we improve immediately.

Since I was unable to speak with you prior to departure, I sent you a private message through TripAdvisor in an effort to obtain additional information about the location of your room.

Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience we caused you and your family, and hope to offer you a more pleasant stay in the future.

Sincerely,

Randall J. Stuart, CHA, CHME

This hotel is very close to Hershey Park, which is perfect. I stayed in the presidential suit and it was amazing! All of the amenities that this hotel offers is great: big pool and huge hot tub, indoor heated pool, volleyball and basketball courts and a nice outdoor deck next to the pool. All of the staff were very nice and helpful! I really recommend staying at this place.

We have been coming to this hotel for about 20 years. I bring my family for a week each August. This year was worth a review. Upon checking in, the manager greeted us and joked with us. He was very welcoming. The girl helping us check in was also great. She upgraded our room and switched things around so we could be with our other family members. Compared to other years, I noticed the grounds look much better. The pools are cleaner and the hot tub has finally been updated. We love coming to this hotel, it's like a second home. It is a great location and offers many amenities. I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: It never hurts to ask if an upgraded room is available.
