“Wish most places were like this”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

We came here for a weekend in Hershey. It was close by to so many places. The staff was so friendly. It was very unusual to call every time for information and have the staff sound like they were actually happy to talk to you. The best part is we got the Penthouse Suite. It was so affordable and the place was updated and spotlessly clean. It was so nice! The free breakfast always had a plethora of selection with a hot breakfast as well. The food was surprisingly good, like they really tried, compared to other hotels. Its sad most places arent like this one!

Good clean suite for 5 adults along with friendly, helpful staff meant for a relaxing overnight stay on our way home from Atlantic City. Nice outdoor pool too.

Think we may need to head back to explore Harrisburg again.

We come on a annual basis. House rooms are uprgraded compared to 2 years ago. Very clean and newer interior. We stay because of the spacious size with kitchen and breakfast. And no bed bugs. Read up on other hotels before booking.

Larger building indoor pool is under construction. Yes, the hot spa is cemented, probably for safety due to the hot temperatures outside during this season.

It may be in a quiet location, but Target, Friendly's, and Chili's is only 2 minutes away throught the back streets. You can always find some coupon online for these restaurants or buy something back for the kitchen. They are very busy, so be patient with the room cleaning.

They do give a little note with your check in key warning about car break in - travellers hot spot for thieves- don't leave visible valuables.

Pretty close to Hershey Park. The hotel is a little older, but kept up very nicely. Our room had very high cielings and loft style bedroom and bath on the second floor. The kitchen was very big for a hotel, we almost felt like we were staying in an apartment rather than a hotel. Everyone was very nice, especially Donna who set up the breakfast buffet. There were lots of children/famlies but we weren't disturbed by noise at all. Try to get down for breakfast before 9:00 when it gets very crowded.

My family of 4 has stayed at the Residence Inn Harrisburg/Hershey 2 times within the past 3 months & would gladly go back again. There are many reasons why the Residence Inn almost feels like home. Some of them are: full kitchens (stocked with most equipment), separate bedroom/livingroom (for some rooms), Paul Mitchell shampoo/conditioner, comfy beds, flat screen tvs, pets are allowed, laundry facitilies, complimentary breakfast & free wifi (in the one section).

The only reason I gave the Residence Inn a 4 out of 5 is because it isn't located in an asethetically pleasing area (very industrial, right off Rt 322 [although you cannot hear the noise from the highway]) & because they filled in the hot tub (which did not make my husband very happy).

.. they have closed and cemented over their heated spas! Something about the handicap access lift not being adequate for one person to operate by themselves so rather than fix or replace them they just closed the spas period! Too bad because it was one of my favorite things to do after a day of being behind the wheel. Funny thing is the website still boasts heated spas, but I see any here now.

Thank you for taking the time to review my hotel on TripAdvisor. I am so sorry you have been mislead by the picture of the spa on our website. It has been removed as of 06/11/12. Both indoor and outdoor spa's have been closed due to new ADA regulations. I am so sorry this was an inconvenience during your stay and I do hope you continue to stay with us in the future. Thank you!

My husband's job has us traveling for most of the year; therefore, hotels are our primary residence. We stayed at the Residence in Harrisburg in 2004 for almost one year. During our stay the staff became like family and treated us likewise. Dawnna Huling and her assistant Kim could not do enough to make our stay so enjoyable. The meals are delicious and the hospitality is tremendous. Once again, we are in the area for an extended period of time and didn't think twice where we wanted to stay. And as always we were greeted with the same cheeful hospitality; therefore, this is the only one for us.

Room Tip: If your looking for a caring, hospitable staff with a high standard for cleanliness and comfort this...
