This is my 4th year coming to this specific Red Lion Hotel because it’s simply the best. Hands down. I would rather come relax at this hotel for a few days then plan some hectic trip to a beach or resort with my kids. The outdoor pool is great! Always clean, plenty of places to sit. There’s outdoor grills available as well as basketball and tennis courts. There’s also a park for the kids right next to the pool which is convenient when it’s time to take a break. Alongside that is a volleyball net. The restaurant is always great as well as the breakfast buffet. There’s an arcade and ping pong tables to keep kids busy if they’re not in the indoor or outside pool having a good time. The staff is excellent and always willing to lend a hand. I just came with my kids for the Fourth of July and it was definitely a well needed day of fun and relaxation. I can’t wait to come back soon!

Hotel's Favourite
COVID kept us from so much last year - but considering the hardship and sorrow many had from it, we considered ourselves to among the lucky ones. And we felt even luckier this year that we could return to the Red Lion in Harrisburg on our way to the Jersey Shore. We were a bit worried about our planned stay - we had heard so much about not enough workers being available in hotels and vacation spots - and also about people being careless about COVID (it is still out there!) The Red Lion is a huge facility with an enormous outdoor pool and indoor pool (along with a fun gameroom and a small arcade). All were open and well-maintained - the rooms were clean and the lobby sparkling - safety measures were in place. The long-time amazing, manager Randy admitted this was a challenging year - and that was why he was in a polo shirt rather than his traditional suit - he was there to do whatever needed to be done to keep the place going, even he had to do it himself. Though the place was busy with vacationers and visitors to Hershey we noticed no lack of care or attention. This is an older facility but lovingly cared for - a great oasis for families! We were so happy to be back - and we will be back again!

Responded 31 Aug 2021
Dear Bushwanders, We are delighted to welcome you and so many of our loyal customers back this year. We were cautiously optimistic coming into the 2021 summer season that we would be running all areas of the property at 100%. Challenges aside with staffing and securing various supplies, we prepared to embrace every guest with the same level of service they have come to expect when staying with us. Our passion and commitment in understanding the needs of our guests 24/7 remains our #1 priority. Our age of our property may not be suited for some folks, and we respect that. But, if you’re looking for value and an unequaled service commitment standard, Red Lion Hotel Harrisburg Hershey will not disappoint you. Thank you for making us all smile. Kind regards, Randall J. Stuart, CHA, CHME General Manager

This hotel was a great find! We have gone back several times over four years. My boys, now 18, 13, & 7, enjoy all the the things to do on the hotel grounds, including a beautiful outdoor pool and sitting area, an indoor pool, ping pong, & a playground. Sometime when we return we would love to take advantage of the bbq/picnic area. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The manager remains visible and is certain each guest is comfortable and leaves happy. It is within a ten/fifteen minute drive to Hershey Park and Chocolate World. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby and even a Target across the street. Staying at this hotel is convenient and comfortable.

I was looking for a hotel that would be good for our family to go to Hershey Park. This place fits the bill. We have stayed here 5 times so far. It is VERY clean. Randy and his staff are very friendly and nice. Always willing to go above and beyond. The Location is great 20 minutes to Hershey and about 45 to Gettysburg. We have even gone to one of the caves on our way home once. They have an in house restaurants that serves food all day. Most days I think. We have also found good restaurants around the hotel. We went a couple of weeks ago and will be headed back in a couple of weeks. The kid loves both pools although he has now grown out of the playground he did enjoy it in the past.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. From the second we checked in right until checkout, everything was perfect. Every single staff member was helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and grounds are great for families. The manager at the front desk was so accommodating and helpful. We had a great time with our large group. There are many areas for gathering with friends. I can’t wait to go back!!

I would like to personally thank the owner ( Randy ) for going above and beyond for me. I am coming into town for a couple of weeks for work, and was a little skeptical on what I should do, or where I should stay. This man has amazing customer skills and is taking care of business while he should be home relaxing. I look forward to leaving a more detailed review after I complete my work trip. Thank you Randy, I look forward to meeting you and personally shaking your hand !

We have been coming to this hotel for over 15 years with our basketball organization and it has been nothing but the best! They are helpful, clean, and super accommodating. The location in regards to Hershey is close and convenient and the families love the outdoor pool area and play ground. We are looking forward to being back there again this upcoming weekend!
