"Fine hotel for anyone"
Outside appearance lacks a little but the room was very clean and the price was excellentGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing fancy; just the basics at half the price"
I hate to pay a lot of money for a place to sleep, which was all I needed. The room was clean. There was a coffee maker, (but no coffee). There was a TV, (older style). and the towels made really good back scratchers. The Motel shared the building with a "Saloon and Dance Hall" which initially caused some concern, but our room was quiet and safe. The […] money we saved staying there allowed us to upgrade our resturant choice. Plus it was conveniently located between to points of interest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Extremely quiet considering that it is less than a hundred feet from the railroad. Great location and good price.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is filthy dirty. I would not recommend anyone to stay here. We were traveling to Hershey, PA for a weekend with our two small children. The hotel has poor security. Anyone off the street can access all the rooms on the second level. There is a bar that is connected to the hotel. We traveled and arrived to the hotel at night. While standing […] in the lobby waiting to check in, all I could hear was the music from the bar next door. The neighborhood that the hotel is located in is questionable. We did not feel safe driving through. The lighting on the outside is also very poor. After walking into our room, I refused to stay. We found another hotel that was brand new for practically the same price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 minutes from downtown"
Over priced but great locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"stayed on sunday April, 29th 2012"
Room had a bad odor. There was no lighting in the back of the motel. I felt unsafe. The carpeting was in poor condition. The motel is run down and definitely not what I would expect for the capital city area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Much better options for the price."
This was the first stay at an Econolodge and our last. Slow service. The breakfast was a joke. A muffin and bad coffee is the best they could doGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to stay"
I was delighted to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is what it is."
If you're traveling north or south through PA on 15 and need a place to stay in Harrisburg that's not far off 15 this is fine. There's a basic diner next door that's convenient to eat in or order carry out for your room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Econo Lodge in Pa."
The location of the Motel is very near to a train track and it was very noisey could not sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Econo Lodge in Wormleysburg--Dont stay here!"
This hotel has a very bad smell, from the lobby, to the hall ways, to the hotel room. It is very nasty. I requested a non smoking room & my room smelled like people smoke in it everyday. It was not clean, there were hairs all over the bathroom. The sheets had a brownish tint to them, as well as holes. It was very uncomfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok room not to clean. Rugs stained. No food for breakfast. Went down at 9:00 am. Eployee took a big plate in office. There was 3 small muffins and 1 peiece of white bread. That was it. We went out to eat breakfast. Not impressedGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Worst hotel I ever encountered"
10/17/14 Ronit4 Israel
Dirty room, dirty bathroom, bed linen with holes and stains, gritty carpet over uneven floor. "Continental breakfast" = coffee without milk, 4 miserable-looking mini muffins, orange water instead of orange juice. Worst place ever. Showered at home for an hour to get rid of the yucky feeling of staying in such a room. Got room as "free night" from Choice Hotel, otherwise would have cost $90+tax. Felt ripped off since I paid over $130+tax for each of the two nights that entitled us to a night at this horrid hotel.

I came here for a bachloratte party that my friend made reservations for. The towels and sink were outside the bathroom. Which was awkward when I needed a towel. That's when I noticed the scum and dirty toilet. When I went to plug in my phone and had to move the mattress to find a outlet I had a bed bug crawl across the sheets! I know what a bed bug looks like I work for a hotel and Google verified it for me. I brought it to the front desk and demanded new sheets and covers. I brought them the bug and showed it to the front desk and the first thing he said was it wasn't a bed bug. I never said what kind of bug or anything. But it proved my suspicions. Thanks! Breakfast was a joke. Semi warm coffee and a questionable muffin. No thanks! If I were you sleeping in your car is a better option! At least you don't have to worry about bringing critters back home with you. This is the worst hotel I've ever been in!
"Decent budget stay"

The room was acceptable as far as cleanliness is concerned. Good location across the river from the heart of Harrisburg. It is a budget place so do not expect anything great in the room. Breakfast included in the price is not worth mentioning.
"Acceptable for a short stay"
07/22/14 cjw_9 Albrightsville
I've stayed at this Econo Lodge many times over the past dozen years or so. It is convenient for me to Harrisburg, which is about four minutes away across the river. I have found this motel to gradually improve, little by little , over the years. My rooms have always been clean, as well as my bedclothes and towels. Breakfast is meager, but there is a nice diner type restaurant in front of the lodging. The front desk and housekeeping personnel were very friendly and helpful to me. On my most recent visit the bathroom drain did not work and the maintenance man fixed it correctly and politely and immediately. My room's electric, AC/heater and Wi-Fi worked well. My rate here is discounted with my Choice Hotels membership and most recently was $49.50 for a weekday and $76.50 for a weekend. That compares to a $168 best price I could find across the river. Note that this motel is next door to the state American Legion HQ and offers a discount for Legionnaires. This is not luxurious accommodation, but okay for a night for two.
"Don't stay here"
07/13/14 Boone8 Oshawa
The "Econo" here refers to amenities, not the price For $100 a night, I expect WAY more than what this place delivers. We only stayed here because we got here late on a Friday and the first few places we tried were full. The wall receptacles were so worn that none of our laptop plugs would stay in - they'd just fall out on their own accord due to gravity. No sheers on the window, the TV was from around 1970, and the bedspreads, sheets, towels and pillowcases had holes in them. For two people, we were supplied the grand total of one small, thin, threadbare towel and one holy washcloth each. On the plus side, the wi-fi worked well and the shower had good pressure. The room was SO stuffy, we had to have the air conditioner on all night and it was noisy, which was good as it drowned out the freight train noises that were going on back of the parking lot. The light for the bathroom came on automatically but the vent fan (with no actual vent that I could see as there were two lightbulbs in that cavity) actually drowned out the air conditioner. The lights in the room were so dim, it was difficult to read by them - what were they.... 25 watt bulbs? The "continental breakfast" was coffee so watered down, it was likely just warm-ed up water from the nearby Susquehanna River, the only things of substance was white bread for toast and tiny muffins. I know times are tough but for $100 a night ($108 with tax) I really expect more. The double beds were tiny (even by double standards), lumpy and the headboard of one fell right off the wall, fortunately when we weren't in the bed. Oh, and there were a few bugs that we had to dispatch as well.
"Find Another Place to Stay"
07/03/14 deejayspop Ormond Beach, Florida
Traveling from Florida to Ny we booked this motel online, mistake !!!! to begin with you can't find it, there are 2 n front st's, one on each side of the river. You have to pay in advance to get a reservation and they have a no cancellation policy. The room was VERY small, the floor was giving way in front of the TV and every time you walked there the bathroom light went on. One wall switch controls ALL the electric in the room except the bathroom, I had to loosen bulbs in the lamps to control the lighting. A TRAIN runs behind the motel about 100 feet away, ugh, don't stay here.
"Do. Not. Stay. Here."
06/19/14 Angierobrts Harrogate, Tennessee
Awful...holes in towels and washcloths, lumpy sinking bed, funky stains on carpet, icky room smell, minimal breakfast (diluted Sunny Delight, 2 kinds of small muffins that did not taste fresh), dim lighting...the list goes on.
"This is ECONOlodge--you save money,nice office employee,average room."
05/04/14 marcydaisy Allentown PA
The room here was average for Econo Lodge price level but bed needed turned or new one! The lady in the office could NOT HAVE BEEN MORE HELPFUL--she was leaving (going out the door to her cab) when I went in and she returned to desk to answer my question and had her cab wait for her! That didn't happen any other motel! THE old cigarette smoke smell in the office wasn't in the room, and even the Radisson we visited had that same smell in their convention lobby! THE ROOM: small but complete with refrigerator and microwave. WiFi worked for my tablet and my hubby's laptop. Didn't use the TV. THE BATHROOM was spotless but TINY I think if I took a shower, I might step into toilet getting out of tub. But the tub had handrails and was solid. THE bathroom sink (in back section of bedroom area) leaked but I told the office and they didn't know--so they were going to fix it right away. The sheets were spotless (I checked with flashlight when we first go into room). SO--for the money--it wasn't bad BUT I would advise them that OUTSIDE FIRST IMPRESSION looks horrible and it needs some flowers and/or cleaning up. Visitors left cigarette buts and other small trash and where macadam ends and sidewalk begins is sloppy and needs something to clean it up and make it attractive.

you'll save if you pay foward of the stay with a reserve perfect of carisle events or a night in harrisburg I have stayed at this motel before with pleasant results,over all not a bad place beats pay 150 for the posh places ,it clean, basic all I ever need ,resturants near by [infront}
"not to write home about"
11/03/13 Dale W Midland, Michigan
What is a continental breakfast that only has muffins, bread, only some jam, juice and, coffee. Most choice hotels with continental breakfast services includes some fruit, eggs and waffles, sausages, biscuits and gravy, room was in poor shape.
