After staying at several hotels over the years, this hotel exceeded my expectations. The rate was also affordable, the staff were friendly, and the rooms were very clean. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and I highly recommend this hotel.

Every February I come to Harrisburg and stay at The Central Hotel. The price is reasonable, the room is clean and modern, and the staff is so attentive that I wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area.

This Best Western Hotel is plenty reason enough to call themselves "Best". We had a great time and always felt the friendly staff were at our chosen call whenever we needed them. Thank you Best Western Hotel.

We stayed here because we had to fly out of Harrisburg on a very early flight. The hotel was clean, the restaurant very good, the airport shuttle prompt...but the best was the friendliness and courtesy of ALL THE STAFF. THIS IS SO UNUSUAL IN THE CURRENT HOTEL BUSINESS! We would happily stay here again!

This hotel was very clean and reasonably priced. The decor of the room and the lobby was pleasant. The bar/restaurant had very good food and service. The hotel was also easy to find with the directions we were given. Business center was very helpful.

What a gem we found in this property! Beautiful lobby area, spacious room and a top notch restaurant/pub on the property. Mike, our server in the restaurant, is just what you want after a long day of walking at show at the arena. Will come back, for sure!

Overall a very good hotel, but there was considerable noise from trucks on the freeway using "jakebrake" or airbrakes and the wait at the restaurant was ridiculous. The quilted comforters were too warm unless you turned the room temp to sub-artic ranges.
