I was totally happy with this hotel. My wife and I planned a one night getaway and found this hotel off the beaten track. Our room had a view of the river. Absolutely break taking. Breakfast was included and it was good. The price was very reasonable. Do you like Indian food? Passage to India restaurant is right next door...

This motel is in a very convenient location and right on the river in downtown Harrisburg. Room was nicely decorated and quite comfortable. The TV had lots of channels to pick from. Would definitely stay here again

The motel is basic, but as I said, you get what you pay for. The staff could perhaps be a little friendlier, or they just need a bit of motivation! We had a room with a view of the river which was nice. Walking into town is about 10-15 minutes. The bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom was adequate...

Thank you for your response. I am always disappointed when I read that anyone on my team did not make a positive impression on our guests. We read all of these reviews and certainly will figure out a way to make sure that we become more motivated and friendly! Thank you

We had a second story river side room. Our room had a very nice view of the river. Guy at front desk was very nice and very helpful. Breakfast was free and very good. State capitol is only a 5 minute drive and highly recommend it. City park was also something neat to check out. Would def stay again.

I love the fact that I could have my dog with me...and there's a nice walking path right next to the river right outside of the hotel. A girl named Shay was at the front desk and was very helpful & pleasant! The room could use an upgrade but all in all it wasn't bad...I would definitely stay here again...

This is a lovely location right next to the river, yet with plenty of parking and just off the interstate. Friendly reception and nice room with all the facilities like fridge, microwave etc. Possibly the public areas are due for a freshen up would be my only criticism. Reasonable complementary breakfast in a nice room (but give the hot items...

More of a motel than a hotel, in serious need of an upgrade. Decor is down at heel and parts don't feel really clean, including the room, which to be honest smelt a bit. Location is within walking distance of city centre but nothing in the immediate vicinity of any interest. Didn't brave the bar or restaurant having looked at...

Motel is close to Capital but doesn't offer much else. Needs update and is difficult to find. Room was very worn and generally in poor shape for the money. Shay at front desk was great and was the best part of the stay.

Thank you for your response. Our sleeping rooms are very nice and all of the bedding and pillows are new. One of the best things about our hotel is being so close to the water. This does however during different seasons attract different insects. I can assure you that we are on maintenance plan with Orkin to prevent any type...
