This hotel was so disgusting that we could not sleep there. We left and moved to another hotel. I will NEVER try a Red Carpet again!

Room Tip: Try another hotel.

When we walked into the room, we were hit with an overwhelming smell of carpet cleaner. We learned soon that the carpet was soaking wet by the door. The bathrooms were not cleaned. There were spider webs all along the baseboard with mosquitoes and flies that had been eaten--they'd been there a long time. There was garbage beneath my bed. The remote to the TV didn't match the TV, and so it didn't work. The toilet would refill every 30 minutes, as it was leaking. The mirror still had toothpaste spots from the previous occupants. The shower curtain was disgusting, with mildew and brown stuff all over it. The sink faucet hot water valve wouldn't shut off, and there was a bright rust stain leading down into the drain from the dripping water--it had obviously been dripping for a long time. The sheets were ripped, and the bed was like cardboard. The floors beneath the beds had not been vacuumed. At least we didn't get bed bugs. Don't go here if you're used to cleanliness. I was hoping the bad reviews below were exaggerated, but they were spot-on. I didn't expect a stay at the Hilton, but this was really a disgusting place and not worth any amount of money. Avoid--run away.

Room Tip: Not clean - look elsewhere

Great staff, peaceful environment!! The hotel was great value for money. The service was very friendly, it's in a location central to eating/drinking, shopping and a reasonable walk to the main sights. The rooms were clean, with comfy beds, free WiFi --Zak from Brooklyn, NY

I stay here in Sept for Groom Expo every year. It's cheap, very close, and not gross. Good Tv channels, clean shower, nice people. Breakfast sucked, and bring your own pillow. I haven't used the pool or anything, but for a night's sleep, it's a good value.

I held back on commenting because the people were nice, but I also left my iPhone plug there and called twice about, telling them I would mail the postage, it's been 2 months and I've never received it. . . about the hotel, I wanted a non-smoking room and got a smoking room, so they put me in another room for the first night. EVERYTHING feels so full of germs and dirt, totally disgusting, it was lucky I had my clorox wipes with me. It was really creepy to sleep, at even the bed sheets didn't appear to be clean. Not worth the cheap rate!!

While the staff were very nice, this property can be summed up in one word: filthy. While it is not uncommon to come across lodging that is in need of renovation, as this one is, it is rare to find a property where touching a sink faucet or doorknob is a serious health risk.

There were two rooms available when we arrived & everything else in the area was booked. The first room was musty & dirty. The other room, where we slept after much deliberation (the other option was sleeping in the car or driving another hour in the middle of the night), was filthy.

There was not only hair in the sink & shower but it appeared that none of the surfaces in the room, including windows, carpet, TV, remote, door handles, etc. had not been cleaned in months. Maybe longer. This is no exaggeration.

Luckily, we had a large bottle of Purell & a soapy hand towel, which was used to clean all of the common surfaces, as well as the sink, shower, bathroom floor, & toilet. The sheets appeared clean & there were no bugs (unless you count a dead spider on one of the pillows).

Our room was on the second floor above the office with a large shared patio overlooking the pool. We stayed out there until the sleeping pills kicked in, as just being in the room made us itchy. Luckily, the hornets nest in the ceiling of the patio was very small & didn't cause any problems. We'll return in a month or two to see how big the nest gets.

Pool was clean & had enough chlorine in it to feel safe. There was the romantic scent of a backed-up sewer in the air outside of the hotel all evening & during the day, too. Yikes!

Avoid this motel if possible.

I had expected this motel to be a nightmare experience, but after staying here for 1 night, I liked this place, I continued to stay at this place for few more days. This place is close to Hershey and the price for stay is cheaper, though the room are not absolutely clean, but the place has good privacy and is close to MacDonald, Subway, Sheetz and there is a chinese restaurant too. The people are nice and the stay at this place is a good value for money.
