The Homewood Suites is located in the Rossmoyne Business Center and is a short drive from Harrisburg. It is within driving distance of shopping, food and fuel.

Pros:
The Homewood Suites offers great value for the money. The rooms are spacious and have an apartment-like feel. The kitchen is well equipped, living area comfortable and computer friendly, sleeping area comfortable, and bath separate from the sink and mirror. The suite was built with considerable attention to detail, it is very accommodating, and the combination of service and hotel design is outstanding. They offer a delicious breakfast, manager’s reception (Mon – Thurs), fresh baked cookies in the evening, and hot beverages available 24/7. All this and a terrific staff makes you feel at home.

Cons:
None.

I would highly recommend the Homewood Suites to anyone staying in the Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg area; especially if they are planning the trip Monday through Thursday.

We stayed at this location as well as the Homewood Suites East Hershey location on a weekend trip from Aug. 22-24. This property was the 2nd best of two-- although its still a nice place.

Pros-
-The lobby and common areas are really lovely. The outdoor pool also looked quite nice although we didn't swim.
-Nice breakfast selection, included in rate of stay
-Large 1-bedroom suite
-Faily quiet, for being totally full

Cons-
-Rooms are large, but dated (at least the room we were in --262). Not as modern as the Homewood Suites East
-So-so as far as being clean.
-Cracked tile in the bathroom and a little mold.

Not bad- just not as nice as the other!

We have stayed at Homewood Suites before at various locations across the country and have always enjoyed them. As such, we were excited about staying in the one that was purportedly the best in the nation. We were sorely disappointed. We stayed from Saturday, August 16 - Tuesday, August 19, and after completing all facets of the check-in on Saturday afternoon, the front desk representative handed me our room keys and says, "Oh, by the way, we had someone extend their stay, so we had to move you to a smoking room but we fumigated it. I hope that's alright." Actually, no it's not; my wife has asthma and allergies, and we'd prefer not to expose our kids to the odor. When I inquired about my options, I was told that I had no option. It was either accept the smoking room or go to a different hotel. Needless to say, the fumigation (i.e. spraying of Lysol) didn't do anything for the smoke infested room. And, it appeared that the towels had not even been changed out because they reeked of smoke. Then, when we opened the sofa bed to put our 2 and 4 year old boys to sleep, we found a beer bottle cap in the bed sheets. Disgusting. Further, the carpet was filthy and did not appear to have been vacuumed in quite some time, as the bottom of my white socks were black and, worse yet, there were tiny bits of red candy stuck to them. Finally, when my work conference extended later than usual, we actually inquired about staying another day, whereupon I was told that they were overbooked so that was not an option. When I replied that someone else's extension of a stay bumped me into a smoking room and I was not accommodated, the receptionist simply replied, "Sorry, there's nothing I can do." Considering this room was $200+ per night, I expected much better, and quite frankly, I would not recommend this hotel and would not stay here again.

On the plus side, I would note that the breakfasts were very nice and the M-F hospitality beverages and food were well done. Nonetheless, that's not enough to justify the overriding negative experience we suffered.

Three moms and six kids stayed in the 2br suite for one night on the Hershey package. Wonderfully accommodating, friendly and professional staff. Great room, with plenty of space. Very clean and comfortable. Nice pool. Good hot dinner and breakfast. Great deal! A perfect place to stay while visiting Hershey Park.

I have stayed in the Homewood Suites in Mechanicsburg before, and my stay last month was not a disappointment. Quite simply, this is an excellent hotel, clean, comfortable, convenient, with a great breakfast and large rooms. The staff was friendly and the Hershey chocolate in the room was a nice touch! I especially enjoyed the half hour television presentation about Mechanicsburg which was on a continuous loop.

This hotel was great for our family of four children 18month, 10 year old - 12 year old and 14 year old. The breakfast and dinner makes it a GREAT value! The rooms are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The pool area isnt the largest but is sufficient and very pleasant. A little garden walk though gave my 18month old lots of adventure...They even had a basketball court but with all girls...not a lot of interest their. The rooms are like mini apartments. We visited Hershey Attractions/Outlets for three consecutive days and while the location is a bit away - about 30 minutes...the hotel comfort and free meals with beer and wine at dinner makes up for location.
