Postvisit: A sunrise or a sunset?

... it is impressive. With beautiful homes and mansions on the right... gardens and monuments in the center and the massive Susquehanna River on the left... it is quite nice. The Susquehanna, a whole kilometer wide has to be one of the widest non-navegable rivers in the world. And this river walkway didn't happen by chance. In this case, there actually was carefully planning and foresight. From way back in the earliest day, a plaque explains, the planners wanted to keep this ...

Rain, Butterflies, Walmart and Steak.

... a Strawberry Margarita. Gabrielle had the same steak as Marie with sweet potato and applesauce, the girls had steak bites, Chey with fries and Mackenzie with applesauce. The Margaritas were HUGE - literally couldn't pick them up. The staff come and sang to anyone who is celebrating a birthday - we heard 5 including Cheyenne. $90 all up.

We took a longish way one buying gas, looking for a mag for Dixie and taking Mackenzie home. Got home about 9.30.

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. Porter "my favorite thing was talking the soldiers" (he had great questions too) Natalie: " my favorite thing was comparing the barracks; civil war and current time" Brooke:"lookin' at the houses" Now back to the ...

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 ...

Heading through Pennsylvania to DC today. Raining a bit this morning though expecting it to clear before we get to our next stop. We've really been lucky with the weather on this trip - it's been fine and mild, in the mid to high 20s until now, lovely. Stopped at The Amish Village - not a working farm but a tourist site closely resembling an Amish home and lands including animals. Learned that single ...

    Great Hotel, Great Value

    from

    This is a great hotel for families and a great value. The breakfast was great and the kids had lots of choices. The rooms were exceptionally clean. Just as clean or even cleaner than some 5 star hotels that I have stayed in. It's a few miles from Hershey but definitley worth the drive. The pool was great and the pool area was very clean, even the bathroom in the pool area was clean.

    Great Hotel near Hershey

    from

    We had a one night stay during our visit to Hershey. This hotel was perfect, the room was very large, the bed was comfortable, free internet access, and free breakfast. It was worth the 15 minute drive to Hershey than many of the small motels in that area with no amenities. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody traveling to Hershey. Only downside is the roads around are all under construction and it can be a bit confusing the first time.

    Very Nice Family Stay

    from

    During our family vacation to Hershey Park we stayed here. We had a wonderful spacious room with a king size bed and the pull out sofa that the kids slept on. During our stay the manager's special was really dinner. The breakfast during our stay was great with scrambled eggs and self made omelets on alternate days as well as french toast sticks, sausage links and bacon. Very nice!

    Hershey Park is not too far away along with a Walmart on the way to Hershey Park where we picked up some quick snacks that you can put in the microwave and drinks to keep in the fridge.

    The indoor pool is great along with the fitness center.

    It seems like the amjority of the hotel was filled with families.

    I will stay here again during our visit.

    Excellent! Clean large rooms.

    from

    This was our second stay at a Homewood Suites. The service from the front desk was especially outstanding at this location. Because we booked at the last minute we were only able to get a smoking room but hoped by chance they had a non-smoking room. They didn't have one available but the manager took us to several rooms first to see which one we preferred. Since the hotel is only one year old the smoking rooms were not bad at all. The front desk suggested we go to the Giant Food Store for Hershey Park tickets because they had the best discount. In addition the hotel had maps, directions and suggestions for restaurants in the area. I did notice the breakfast buffet varied from the Homewood Suites we stayed in previously. The other Homewood Suites we stayed at had make-your-own waffles and scrambled eggs. The Harrisburg location did not have a waffle maker but had pre-made, plain omelets that you could fill with cheese, ham etc. and microwave. Regardless, the buffets are excellent. The courtyard area had gas grills for guest use, a small putting green, and a basketball court. My only gripe about the hotel is the layout. It only has one set of elevators in the main lobby and the hotel is large. If you have a room far off the main lobby it takes you forever to get to it. We parked our car in the lot near our room and took the stairs every time. For those who have trouble walking, I would suggest asking for a room near the elevators.

    Excellant

    from

    We stayed there for our trip to Hershey Park. Great location, spacious rooms, clean and friendly staff. This is a perfect place for a family on a fixed income to stay. The breakfast was breakfast not danish and fruit. They had eggs, bacon, waffles, sausage and even chipped beef. Getting to Hershey Park not at problem, you can even get your tickets from the hotel and have them charged them to your room. Overall great expierance and will definately go there again.

    Slight problem: Not enough room to eat breakfast. They use there lobby area to seat people and it can be a logistic nightmare to find seating especially with small children. They do offer limited spaces outside by the pool. So when you arrive for breakfast secure your seating first.

    A Clean, Comfortable Suite

    from

    We stayed at the Homewood Suites/Harrisburg East facility in early July, 2005 for our trip to Hershey Park and it was terrific! We were in a King Studio Suite and it was spacious enough for my husband and I and our four small children. The entire room was clean and comfortable. The included hot breakfast was promptly out beginning around 6:15, and served everything from make-your-own egg omelettes, sausage, variety of brand cereals, Quaker Oatmeal packets, yogurts, toasters with a variety of bagels and breads and all the condiments, coffees, etc. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We requested more towels and they were at our door a minute after we hung up the phone! There is a Ruby Tuesday Restaurant next door and will deliver food and charge to your bill if you desire. Will definately stay here again when visiting PA.

    Great Hotel near Hershey Park

    from

    Stayed during the Thanksgiving weekend. We rented a studio for a family of four. The hotel is new and everthing was great. You get a kitchen, which is great with two small children. Breakfast was great and you get a wonderful selection of food. We loved the fruit slection, which is available all day. They do have an indoor pool, but did not try it out. The hotel is two mintues from the Pro Bass store for those who are interested. As mentioned before, the hotel is 15 mintues from Hershey Park and there is a Red Robin next door.

    Great place to stay for the family

    from

    This is a new hotel that is caters to families. The studio we rented was great and came with a comfortable king size bed and a sofa bed for my children. There was sufficient room for my daughter and son to play at night. The room was very clean and looks like a home away from home with granite kitchen and wood furniture and molding. The breafast was wonderful with a great deal of selections from hot food to fruits. The staff was great and helpful. They do have a small store in the hotel where you can purchase basic items and food. It it a great place to stay and gives a family a suite hotel that is up to Hilton standards. Would recommend and Hershey is only a twenty minutes away. They also offer 1 and 2 bedroom suites, but the studio was sufficient for my family of four.
