A few pros but this place needs a lot of work

Reviewed 29 november, 2021

I understand there may be a shortage of staff but things were a mess. The first room we were in 304 had a phone missing all the buttons to call the front desk, housekeeping, etc. when we got back from dinner the room smelled very badly of human waste. They quickly moved us to a new room which was very nice, however, in our second room, only one outlet in the bathroom worked, and the room safe was locked. Our dinner buffet was really too cold to eat. The chicken was rock hard and the cod was icy cold. The salad dressing was so watered down it poured like water. The desserts were good. Decaf coffee was like brown water. Breakfast buffet was ice cold. Bacon not cooked enough by about 5 minutes. The sweet rolls were still frozen when they were put out. I would not op for their buffets unless you like cold food. The lobby is beautiful. Nicely decorated for Christmas. The day we left the smell of human waste permeated entire first floor. It was gagging. This place needs a lot of work. I would never come back.

Incrediblly Good

Was welcomed as a rewards member. Upgraded to a room the likes of which I've never seen before (two queens in main room, and a MB with a King); and I've stayed in many hotels working 32 years in the airline business. Great experience on check out. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. We didn't even notice the heat going on and off. The pool was so clear, we weren't even sure there was water in it at first. Overall, a fantastic stay and no question about where to stay next time.

Disaster / Bad business!

Reviewed 9 november, 2021

This message is directed to the manager Peter Chiccarine who made the call to shut down the bar early after we had booked dozens of rooms again this year fir our annual horse sale. We are horsemen who travel from all over the globe to assemble in Harrisburg each year for our annual yearling horse sale. Over $40 million invested in a 4 day span to buy young horses and support regional breeding programs and agriculture. Our organizers have a set of “recommended” hotels which we stay at. For years we have made the best western premier our home away from home, however the last few years we have noticed that the bar area has fluctuating closing times. Most of us are at the sale from 9am to 5pm. We rush back to the hotel, wash up, and head to dinner. After dinner we assemble at the bar inside the hotel for drinks and catch up on our industry. This year Peter “made the call” to shut down the bar at 11pm. I arrived after dinner and to my surprise the bar was closing. Let me start with the hotel. It is far from a 4 or 5 star, however the luxury of having a place to meet owners, trainers, breeders, makes it enjoyable. Removing this part of the experience really does no good for the hotel. More than several horsemen, owners and breeders were upset about this decision. We have options, and I can assure you this decision was a negative one within our community. I did try to speak with the food & beverage manager (woman). I even explained that the night before my bar tab was $1500 in 45 minutes. There was little remorse from the decision. In fact, she flat out didn’t care. I can assure you this will be our last year. If you have a conference, find another spot with cleaner rooms, working AC/Heat, and pre set times die their facilities.

Will Definitely Be Back

This was a stop over from Maine to Florida. The hotel is very pet friendly. The hotel met all our expectations and more. We will definitely make it a twice a year stop in our travels. The restaurant/bar/lounge was great. Food was delicious and portions were large while the price was very reasonable. Room was spacious and clean. Bed was perfect after a long day of driving.
