Named for a settlement of wagon mechanics in the early 1800s, the town grew in part because of its link to the Pennsylvania Railroad. The Mechanicsburg Museum Association preserves historic railroad sites like the Stationmaster’s House and Passenger Station, along with the town’s oldest building, Frankeberger Tavern. Jubilee Day, the East Coast’s largest one-day street fair, takes place each June.see all hotels in Mechanicsburg
Being from the West coast we had not tried these hotels. Stayed at several on this trip. Very reasonable pricing - clean, excellent service and free breakfast. Was a perfect spot to allow us to visit both the National Civil War museum in Harrisburg and GettysburgGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean, inexpensive inn with good quality furniture"
Everything about my stay was pleasant except for 2 things: the heater in the room was noisy, and the complimentary breakfast choices were just okay--powdered scrambled eggs instead of fresh eggs tasted terrible. Did not have any whole grain, whole wheat breads, bagels. Did serve hot oatmeal, howeverGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pool out of order"
Everything was great with the hotel except the pool was out of order. They were re-doing the tile floor. They said they would see if it would be open later - come back. We did hours later and oh no we can't open the pool. Other guests said they were told it would be open 6am Sunday. At 10am they were till working on it. That is our one time a year we […] go on vacation and we were really looking forward to the pool! We should of got a discount. Other than that the hotel was great!!!! Breakfast was real good! Very clean! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant hotel"
Really met our needs. VERY REASONABLE price. Excellent breakfast. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool and the suite afforded plenty of space for all of us. Our bed sheets weren't as clean as I would have preferred and the stopper in the tub did not work well. The location confused our GPS (we came to understand that had happened before). Was easy to […] get back to Hershey for our plans the next day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
Hotel was in good / fair condition, clean, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast area was too small and therefore always packed. One of the days we were there my room didn't get clean and the towels weren't refreshed. With that said all in all it wasn't a bad place to stay. The price was right, location was good for what we wanted […] to do. We would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel did not measure up"
Rooms where clean when we got there but they were not cleaned while we were there- 2 of our 3 rooms were not cleaned- when we called down about it all we got was an apology- then WE had to go downstairs to get towels and dump our garbage. No call from manager next day- lots of traffic trying to get to Hershey from this location due to mismanaged traffic […] lights. Also no places to eat but one Texas BBQ close by- desolate town.

We sincerely apologize for the concerns that you shared about your recent stay at our location. We utilize the feedback from our guests to evaluate areas that we can improve. We look forward to sharing your comments with the hotel team and implementing the necessary changes. Sincerely,
The room was very nice, nice bathroom, breakfast room was crowded not a lot of seating, and the pool area was way too warm and never enough clean towels when you were done swimming. We would stay there again if in the area, wish there were some restaurants nearby though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good for a young family"
A little bit older of a hotel, but in good repair and comfort. Accommodated my young family and me well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for a couple of nights. My son had a lacrosse tournament and we went to Hershey Park. The hotel is about 25 minutes south of Hershey which was a bit much. However, it was clean, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was plentiful and very good. We didn't spend much time at the hotel but the time that we did spend there was comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No suite, no kitchen, yes toenail clippings, noise"
We paid extra for a one-bedroom suite, expecting a bedroom with one bed for us, and another room for the kids. We thought the kitchenette would be like the kitchenettes in every other suite hotel we've stayed at, and we've stayed at plenty. All our expectations were sorely disappointed. Turns out a one-bedroom suite is just a regular narrow room with […] a door between the two beds and the pull-out couch. My son had to sleep in the room with us, while the girls slept on the bumpy couch. My daughter lost her Nintendo DS stylus in that couch and found--brace for it--toenail clippings!! WTH?? The supposed kitchenette is a mini fridge and a tiny microwave. It doesn't even have a sink, let alone something to cook on or in! The beds were near the window overlooking a highway, so I couldn't sleep because of the noise from the trucks. The lobby is little more than a desk and stairs up to the second floor, although it does have a tiny seating area with a bookshelf. There's no program guide for the TVs, so unless you're familiar with the area's cable stations, you won't find much more than infomercials. If you're going to Hersheypark, like we did, we highly recommend you stay anywhere but here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel. Room was nice, air conditioning worked well, beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the pool after a long day of sightseeing. Staff was helpful. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK quality for what we paid"
Overall, not a bad hotel for what we paid. But we paid 40% less than posted rates. Hotel offers a small pool/hot tub, exercise room, front and side parking (1 side), free breakfast (hot and cold selections, not too bad), free newspapers and cookies, vending machines, etc. Standard fare for a mid level hotel. Some issues - wireless internet did not work […] so had to use hard line, papers and cookies not available each day as advertised, pool didn't have towels 1 night. Rooms were standard with fridge, microwave, and flat panel TV. Standard rooms, nothing special. Overall about what I expected for what we paid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My family and I go to Hershey Park every year and this was the first year we went early and from the experience I had I will continue to go early and stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Poor service and hotels needs maintenance"
The work out room had a broken AC unit and was hot as a sauna. When I notified the front desk they said they would fix the next morning. The next morning it was not fixed and talked to a different person at the front desk. He denied the the room had AC and told me to just open the door. There was clearly an AC unit in the room and he did not care to […] offer any assistance. In addition, our bathroom vent/fan did not work, the pool was cloudy and smelly. Overall, the hotel was run down and the service was poor. We actually canceled our last 2 nights and moved to a different hotel. The only positive was that the breakfast was good and they had a variety of foods. Not enough for me to ever book this location or chain again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. Everyone and everything was great, If I had to pick one thing that could have been better within this hotel I would say the gym. But overall I REALLY had a nice time. Thank You!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to stay!! Totally impressed. Will defiantly look into this chain of hotels again:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good sized rooms, very close to expressway."
My wife and I stayed at this hotel with our 3 young children. We stayed for a quick overnight as a place to sleep on a longer road trip. The room was very good sized and clean. The hotel staff was friendly. Free breakfast was decent. The hotel is VERY close to the expressway and is located on an commercial access road so there is not much nearby. Consider […] asking for a room that is not on the side of the hotel close to the expressway if you choose to stay here and are concerned about road noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice, great location for our destinations. I took my son away for his birthday to see the antique car museum and Hershey museum in Hershey and Carlisle sports emporium. The pool at the hotel was a little small but kids had fun. Room was very clean. Front desk was super helpful. Breakfast was nice. Service was better Sunday at breakfast then on […] Saturday. Lots of things were empty and messy Saturday. Sunday was great though. I will definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Easy to get to from the Interstate Highway. Also had an adequate cooked breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to major shopping and restaurants..."
The rooms were very comfortable and the free breakfast was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had high hopes"
The Pros: VERY clean facility, friendly staff, very good breakfast (except for the day they offered "Creamed Beef" and biscuits instead of eggs and meat). The Cons: The pool was closed the first two days we were there. The only vending machine was "Out of Order" for all four nights of our stay. On the 3rd night the bathroom light stopped working and […] we immediately reported it to the Front Desk. The next day they said it couldn't be fixed (no maintenance staff on weekends) so they offered us a different room. However, after having been settled in for three nights, we decided not relocate only because would have to pack again to checkout the following morning. We went two nights w/no bathroom light. Finally, the hotel is somewhat "off the beaten path". We stayed to visit Hershey Park w/o realizing the hotel is 25 minutes from the park. That part was my bad, I guess, though I find the "Harrisburg West" part of the title to be somewhat misleading as this hotel is in Mechanicsburg. If I find myself in Mechanicsburg again someday, i wouldn't avoid this place. But for visiting Hershey Park there are places closer to the park. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our Pa stay"
The staff was fabulous & changed a mistake on our room and put us in a non smoking room. The rooms were clean, but need a fresh remodel. Some of the outlets were old/loose so plugs would not stay in the outlet. The location was perfect for what we did, close to Hershey, gettysburg, Harrisburg airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfy for family of four"
We had a one-bedroom suite with two beds and a pull-out couch (which we didn't use). The room was very comfortable for the four of us and we all slept great. Breakfast was pretty standard, coffee was great! Nice staff. True "cons": The bathroom did not have a fan. The pool was much smaller than it looked in pictures online and seems like it could use […] some updating. There isn't anything within walking distance of the hotel, and, while the highway noise didn't bother us, I could see it bothering people who are used to sleeping in silence. Reviewers on hotels.com were spot-on with this one! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel accomodated us for a Hershey Park vacation weekend. The distance wasn't bad but there is traffic going through Harrisburg that can make the drive last more than 30 minutes to Hershey Park. The room was clean and spacious. They offered a free breakfast that was good. The breakfast area is a little small and could be crowded in the morning if […] you have several rooms there at once. The hotel is close enough to the highway to hear a lot of road noise. The hotel is on a side road with another hotel and surrounded by woods and brush. Overall, I liked the hotel and would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Well I looked around the room for anything out of place. And everything was where it was supposed to be. We spent 3 days in this hotel and we had a good time. yes it was of the beaten track but the service was great.Even the Thunderstorm on Tuesday night was a very good and frighting thing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room smelled and I had to clean it!"
We checked in on a Friday evening and when I got into the suite we noticed a bad smell right away. We couldn't find the source of odor until I went to put the baby bottles in the refrigerator. Inside the refrigerator was boxes of garlic chicken wings( the refrigerator was turned off )! There was also tons of blue liquid and spilled drinks all through […] it. We notified the front desk and instead of having the cleaning lady do their job, they gave us a trash bag to empty it out and clean it ourselves. The desk clerks were very friendly but I was not happy to have to clean a room after driving all day in a car. Then we went to the pool and there were NO towels. I had to go to desk and tell them that we needed them and that other guest were also looking for them. They handed me a few but never brought any other towels down for the other swimmers. There were cigarette butts all over the ground outside and an empty liquor bottle by the rocking chairs in the front porch area. I was very disappointed as Country Inn and Suites was our favorite place to stay as a family until now. I would not book with them again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice stay"
We stayed at Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Harrisburg West for one night as we were passing on our way to final destination. The staff was very helpful and went extra mile for us. We wanted to visit Amish and the staff gave us great instruction on were to go, what to see and where to eat. The pool and hot tub was great! The garden in front of the […] hotel is welcoming! The room is comfy and clean. The hotel is situated on a quite road. We'll would definitely stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Right next to the highway which kept us up all night. Distance to Hershey or any other restaurant or attractions very inconvenient. Pool was very cold and dusty. Beds and pillows were very uncomfortable. Would not reccomend for a family stay. The room was musty an damp and just not a comfortable stay. Next time Im going to pay the extra 20 bucks a […] night!

"Country Inn Mechanicsburg, PA"
Friendly staff, we were able to check in early (big deal w/2 grand kids!) Room was comfortable, but location was well off the beaten path. As an overall value, I would recommend the Country Inn.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, nice, good breakfast"
Stayed over New years eve. We were snowboarding at Roundtop and this place was pretty near, good breakfast, nice rooms, fridge and microwave in room. Front desk people were nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was on the ground floor next to a very busy road-sleeping at night was difficult because of the noise of traffic. Our room was not cared for on Thanksgiving as the employees left early.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Country Inn and Suites by Carlson- Harrisburg West"
The room we were given was very comfy. Only problem- middle of night we lost power to most of the room. I called the front desk and told them what happened. The night shift desk clerk was very helpful- she reassigned us another room. Same lay out as the first one. After we went out for the day the new room key didn't work. They fixed that fast. They […] served breakfast each morning- great selection of hot food- eggs, mest (bacon one day and sausge the other), potatos, waffels, cereal, etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was better than we expected, the staff was very friendly and accomodating. We found the room to be very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was one of the better we have had on other hotel stays. The pool was clean and so was the hot tub and there were ample towels in the pool area. very happyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the hotel for a quick getaway. It was a great location at a great rate. We went to Hershey, Lancaster, and Gettysburg, so we were looking for a hotel that was close to all 3 locations. This hotel was perfect. Clean rooms, indoor pool, and hot breakfast. Great value hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
We decided to go to Hershey's Chocolate World for my son's b-day, booked a different hotel because we were on a budget. The other hotel was filthy and unfit to sleep in, so I got online and found this hotel which was about 30 minutes away from where we were staying, and they had an opening, thank the Lord! Completely worth it!!!! When I walked in, I […] felt so relieved!!!! It even smelled clean. I went from tears to a smile in seconds!! Great receptionist even though it was 10:00 PM! Also, they have a pretty good full breakfast, not just bagels and doughnuts. Highly recommended and fairly easy to get to. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mechanicsburg Comfort Inn - great hotel!"
The staff was helpful and friendly, the room (standard style with two queen beds) was very comfortable, very clean, housekeeping was great. Breakfast was fantastic, the staff kept up even though the hotel was booked solid each night. Great selection of food. Our room faced the parking lot rather than highway, so it was very quiet. There is a road closed […] nearby that was washed out during flooding, detour was inconvenient but it wasn't the end of the world. Plenty of places to eat nearby, as well as shopping. convenient to Harrisburg, Hershey and York. I would stay here again if I'm in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a very nice hotel, rooms were clean and service was good. Good choices for breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the price!"
Overall hotel is not bad, but the only thing I was not a happy camper was eating my breakfast standing because the breakfast room is small for hotel. Hotel wasn't full and still not enough tables. I cant imagine how they work it out with full house. Breakfast was ok. Hotel is about 25-30 min from Hershey attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very satisfied... from making the reservation to our hotel stay. We have already recommended it. We would book it again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Country Inn and Suites"
I was really pleased with this hotel. I arrived there with my husband and 2 kids and was pleasantly pleased with our hotel room. Lots of space and very clean. My children loved it!! My kids also loved the indoor pool and hot tub. Only problem I had with it was that it was very warm in the pool room and one day the chlorine was very strong which irritated […] my eyes and the tile around the pool got very slippery which caused my son to slip 2 or 3 times. Breakfast was great, great choices. Would definately go back to this location again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was slightly worn (carpet, couch, shower) but big and comfortable. Only complaint would be front desk staff at check in- impatient answering questions regarding hotel services, unknowledgeable of surrounding area, and more interested in playing with cell phones than helping hotel guests. Breakfast was good, room was clean, pool is small but made […] the kids happy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is just an average hotel"
Based on previous review, I was expecting more out of this hotel. First, I requested a room facing the local road instead of the highway. The attendant did not even look at the computer to see if there was any availability. Just said that the hotel was full and gave the keys to my room. Not too happy to find out that bathtub was clogged. During breakfast, […] the waffle machine was broken. So, I did not have a good experience with this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Country Inn & Suites by Carlson in Mechanicsburg"
We stayed here because it was the best rate for our family vacation to Hershey. The front desk clerk was not as welcoming. The hotel itself provided various breakfasts which was nice. The hotel is not in a great locale. It was in an industrial-like area but close to the highway. I was surprised about the amount of traffic heading towards Hershey.
