"great place to stay"
07/30/14 Paula M Bozeman, Montana
when traveling it is a great place to stay, having Cracker Barrel sharing the parking lot is a great thing. Many hotels in that area do not have anywhere to eat nearby. Can be tricky to find in the dark if you are unfamiliar with how to get there but once in the vicinity you will find it.
"New, modern and clean"

For our family of 4, the location is pretty convenient for the area. The hotel is beautiful - clean and modern with new furniture and comfortable beds and pillows. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it doesn't have a pool or bar. Convenient to Knoebels, Cabelas & Crystal Cave nearby. The breakfast buffet was very good for complimentary with great coffee & cinnamon buns. You cannot go wrong here.
I recently stayed at hotel for business- it served the purpose - clean, quiet , comfortable! Just one comment - please ask front desk staff to cute back on perfume- it was overpowering and gave me a terrible headache
"Best hotel in Frackville"

This hotel is about what you would expect from a HI Express…but that makes it the best hotel in Frackville. The hotel appears a little worn but is still OK. One warning -- although the hotel is near the I-81 exit it can be difficult to find. It is located behind the Cracker Barrel and near the Shopping Mall. To get there from I-81 follow the signs to either of those.
"Probably the place to stay in Frackville"

Nice property and adequate breakfast. Staff mostly friendly. Not a bad stay but bothered by several things. First, they are smoke free and pet free--I like that. However, it was emphasized at check-in and that if you violated their policy your credit card will be charged $250. It felt like I could expect a charge even though I do not smoke or have a pet. Still watching my credit card and so far no charges. Got on the elevator and read a statement on the key card that my credit card would be charged if I took their towels or linen. It is not a good first impression that their guests need these warnings. Then, the heat was off in the room and it had been below zero. So, I turned the heat on and went to get some food. I bought groceries since I could not find a place I wanted to eat. I put frozen food in the small freezer only to find them thawed the next morning because the refrigerator was unplugged. Since the frig did not have a power switch I believe this was being energy wise, which I like. Could you power up the heat and plug in the frig for a new guest? Then, black hair in the tub. Ignoring the tub hair, I feel their good intentions (smoke free, pet free, energy conservation) were misrepresented by the wrong emphasis. I got the impression that either they were going to scam me for smoking, pets, or stealing towels or that is what their guests usually do. This approached lessened the experience for me.
"Couldn't have asked for more!"

We had to stay in the Pottsville area for a family funeral and found the HIE on line. We were traveling with a one year old. We arrived to find everything in order and for us including the crib in the room. The hotel is exceptionally clean and everything is in great condition. The Cracker Barrel was just 75 yards across the parking lot, an easy walk even in winter. The morning breakfast was also an easy, clean, and delicious start to the day. We will stay there any time we spend the night in "coal country ."
"Nice hotel but our visit pricey"

We arrived in Frackville without a reservation since we drove further than we had planned. We were quoted a rate of $114 (using AARP). I asked if this included everything and was assured it did. I wasn't happy in the am to get the credit card receipt for $124 (the $114 + taxes). The Country Inn and Suites one exit south had rooms for $84. Had we known we were actually paying $124 we would have gone there. At any rate (pun intended) this hotel is fine. Our room was quiet, spacious, and clean. AM staff were pleasant and the breakfast looked entirely satisfactory. My advice: check rates carefully!
"Very Nice Hotel"

We were originally hoping to drive to Hershey, PA, but decided to stop early. I searched on Google Maps for a hotel and this popped up with three great reviews. I'm glad that I found this, it is a really nice hotel, very clean and comfortable. We received a AAA discount on our room, which was a bonus. The bed and pillow were exceptionally comfortable. The breakfast is what we have come to expect, but they have pancakes instead of waffles.
"Another Great Stay"

This was our second stay at the Holiday Inn Frackville and my brother's first. He was thrilled with the accommodations and breakfast. Friendly staff and clean hotel. When I returned home, I realized I had left my camera in the room. They found it and quickly mailed it back to me. We will definitely be returning next year!

I stayed in this hotel for one night due to a business trip in the area. The front desk staff was absolutely wonderful and offered me two bottles of water when I checked in, a result of being a rewards member with IHG. The room was very clean and smelled nice. I always check the towels - I feel like you can definitely learn something about a hotel by judging their towels - and these were plush, clean, and smelled nice. The fitness center was sparse - two treadmills, and elliptical and a bike - but there was a lot of space to do a floor workout and also a sign that said they were renovating. There is a Cracker Barrel across the parking lot, so it's a short walk away for a quick dinner. Breakfast in the morning was great, everything was very fresh and constantly restocked and refilled. The only thing that I found unusual was that the heavy drapes in the room didn't close all of the way, but the thin see-through white ones did. Overall, great stay. I would definitely stay here again!
