... ethnicity) before the home values hit zero. As I saw in places like Camden, New Jersey, sometime immigrant communities move in and save a neighborhood from total ruin. But that doesn't seem to be happening fast enough here along the Derry street neighborhoods... I reach my car, pondering on what I've seen. I then head to downtown to enjoy an evening on the town--but the normally lively scene on 2nd Street seems quieter then what I remember--just a couple of bars that are ...

Enjoying the morning with Uncle Dee. After a great breakfast at Bob Evans needed to run off some sausage gravy. Had a blast at the Army Heritage Museum running through the barracks and talking to soldiers. It was amazing.

A stop in Boiling Springs to see Uncle Dee. Some duck feeding and early Birthday presents. I am exhausted. I'm just happy not to be moving furniture or packing boxes. Uneventful trip so far. Traffic wasn't bad at all. We will see what tomorrow will bring. Good ...

Once girls turn 12 they no longer use buttons and have to pin themselves into their clothing every day with straight pins - the ones you might use to hold material together before sewing! Each family may have six to eight children and at gatherings, as space is limited, they eat in shifts - men ...

    Excellent service great rooms AAA+++

    from

    We stayed at this hotel to go to the Farm Complex. It took about 10 minutes drive time. The hotel was clean, smelled fresh, the beds were wonderful-1st time I ever stayed in a hotel and did not wake up with a sore back. Pool was immaculate. Front desk people were awesome. Our stay was very nice.

    Great Hotel!!!

    from

    I stayed at this hotel over the New Year's holiday and absolutely loved it. The front desk staff was so friendly at check in and told me all about the festivities going on right in the hotel. Upon arrival to the room I found their beds some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in (their new matresses and bedding is to die for). The room was spacious and comfortable. We went to the Irish Pub for the evening and found the staff friendly and the food was great. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone visiting Harrisburg and Hershey, great for families as well as business travelers.

    Somewhat Suprising

    from

    Stayed over the Thankgiving holiday with my family. Room was nice and clean with suprisingly comfortable large beds and pillows. Enjoyed a great Thanksgving meal and room service that evening. The large indoor pool and gameroom was perfect for our children. The hallways are a little dark and needing updating but the Irish Pub was terrific, enjoyed the guitar entertainment. We'll be back, maybe in the summer.

    Solid mid level hotel

    from

    Big hotel, a bit dated, great pool, nice irish pub/restaurant. Decent enough price. Pretty good for a provincial town.

    Old and Dingy

    from

    I stayed here as a last minute thing just passing through Harrisburg. I enjoy staying at Sheratons but this one really was disappointing. Organization at the front desk was incredibly bad. I found my room to be old and with a musty odor. I called down and they said there was nothing that could be done. There were light bulbs burnt out and the a/c was very loud. I slept horribly due to the sound of running water through pipes in my ceiling!. I definitely would not recommend staying here. Stay at the Hilton downtown. It is great and worth the few extra dollars.

    What a comfortable hotel!

    from

    Our Girl Scout group spent a day at Hershey Park and after a long day wanted a place for the girls to relax and swim. Originally, we booked our stay at the Comfort Inn, but based on comments from other reviewers, we decided to cancel that and stay at the 4 Points Sheraton. This prooved to be a wise decision!

    Perfect for our purposes.

    from

    We were here with a group of teenage fast-pitch softball players and families for a tournament. Although rooms were a little spread out we were all able to run around to which ever room we needed to be at. Some of the rooms seemed to have air condioners that didn't work to well. However ours worked fine and we all slept comfortably on that wonderful bed! The pub in the hotel was helpful when we had pizza delivered for the group and they gave us plates and napkins when the pizza place forgot them. Girls had a great time in the indoor pool after playing softball in the heat all day. I did feel sorry for the people that had rooms overlooking the pool. Lot's of noise until it closed at 10:00pm.

    Not Impressed

    from

    When traveling with our children, we will usually ask for a Junior Suite so parents and children have seperate rooms. The Junior Suite we were given was large. The living area had a pull out couch and a 6 person conference table with sliding doors out onto the pool deck. There were french doors adjoing to the king bedroom. The bathroom was terribly small. The adjacent dressing area had very poor lighting and could have used seating. The furniture was newer and was nice looking. The living area was large but dwarfed due to the conference table. The microwave was dirty and the small refridgerator rattled. We asked for a roll away bed and it was brought immediately. It was a comfortable, full size twin. We just slid the conference table against the wall to accomodate the roll away. My largest complaint is that all Suites open onto the pool area. Ours was inconviently located right next to the jaccuzzi on the first floor. Our room reaked of chlorine. After sleeping there our first night we all had red, raw throats in the morning. The staff let me check out suites on the higher floors, but since opening to the pool, all smelled of chlorine. We were then down graded to a standard room with 2 queen beds. Nothing to write home about.

    Could have been better...

    from

    for the price. Just hope you don't get a room surrounding the pool or lobby, unless of course you like to hear the sounds of screaming kids and highschool seniors at all hours of the night. Management was not accomodating to large group needs for extending check-out by one hour due to tournament time changes. $$$. The hotel's restaurant was good and not too pricey, either. No exhaust fans in the bathroom. It's time to get with the program and make some upgrades. The bed was phenomenal!

    Good locationb but average room for the price

    from

    We just got back from our Hershey vacation and stayed here. It is in a very good central location (about 10-15 minutes to Harrisburg and Hershey), and close to the highway (but you really do not hear the noise in the room). The room, though, was an average, typical hotel room, and really not worth the amount we paid ($110) but was one of the less expensive in the area. We really liked the location, though, and would probably stay here again, though hopefully could find a coupon or something for a better rate.
