Quality Inn Riverfront
Ranked #30 of 51 Hotels in Harrisburg
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Pros -
Nice location on the river with historic train bridge over river that is beautiful and not loud. It is in a historic city area. Those that expect (and prefer) suburban chain locations - this isn't for you. Those who prefer a unique and urban feel will be happy. If your room is facing the river you do have a beautiful view.
Staff very nice all around. Pool area clean. Rooms were clean and the A/C worked extremely well. Shower head very high - important for us tall people. Breakfast pretty good. It's included so don't expect Sunday brunch at the Ritz. 24 hour coffee which was better than most small hotel coffee. Two firm and two soft pillows on each Queen bed - nice touch.
Nice fridge and microwave were appreciated.
No problems with complimentary wifi.
We heard very good things about the associated restaurant.
Cons -
As seems to be the theme - hall carpets are noticeably soiled
Two floors - no elevator to second floor. You will be carrying your gear up steps.
Halls very warm in summer.
Seemed to be pretty thin walls. We could hear neighbors in the morning.
Rooms on the small side - but it is an older property.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor if you don't want to schlep your gear up the stairs.

We stayed in this hotel one night, it was a pleasant stay. At arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant front desk manager. (Ehab) Our room was on the second floor as requested, side view of river. The room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The next morning was very busy in the breakfast area. It was well stocked at all times by breakfast manager Bev. This hotel is located on the riverfront, near to city centre. A short walking time (15 Mins) and you will arrive in city centre where you will find a busy vibrant area for dining or cocktails.

Room Tip: Second floor facing river

Nice hotel and reasonable price.Me and my family stayed here.Our room faced parking lot but it was quiet as well as the hotel itself on the first floor. We walked around it everyday. Downtown and places to eat or drink in walking distance.Park behind the hotel good for kids also has a bbq grill.The swimming pool is right next by the hotel main entrance and the indian restaurant.Cookies in main lobby daily, the kids enjoyed.Also the river is right here and benches available in the river park for sitting enjoying the water, people also fish there.Hospital a minute away and mini malls about 6 mins away in lemoyne pa also super walmart 11 mins away.The staff are nice and friendly. House keeping cleans everyday and are friendly.Nice neighborhood and quiet.

THE GOOD - Staff was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were nice. Showers were awesome, almost like a massage.
THE BAD - The beds slanted to the middle - great for 1 person per bed , but not so good for 2.
Carpets need cleaned in a bad way. You have to go outside to get to the pool. It is across an alley from the check-in area. Parking was at a premium. With 2 or 3 busloads in the parking lot, there was almost no room for any cars.
THE UGLY - After dark there were people hanging out, drinking and breaking beer bottles near the hotel. Also, to get to the hotel you have to navigate 4-5 one way streets. One of these lets you out onto a heavily traveled road with speeding cars. Good Luck!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 1st floor near to the check-in. This puts you close to the work-out room a...

We are a family of 4. The stay was very nice, but we are used to a little nice atmosphere when traveling. There were no problems, but depending on how you arrive at the hotel you might feel a little nervous about the location. Very clean, quiet and continental breakfast were ok. Standard eggs, sausage, muffins cereal. My wife was a little nervous about the environment , but we are very spoiled. Everyone we met were very friendly . would stay again.

Room Tip: ask for a ground floor, NO Elevators if that matters to you.

As a single mom of 3 (14, 12, & 9) I did not feel safe outside the hotel at night. But the pool was nice and the staff were wonderful. Breakfast was good, rooms were clean. One thing we did that we all enjoyed was take our breakfast out to the river and enjoy the morning views. I think for the price, the hotel was what you expect. Only complaint is the location was a little on the trashy side. I just kept my kids close and we were fine. And I can't say enough good about the staff and their willingness to help.
