Upon arriving, Mabel and Mick greeted us and were very friendly. We drove over a day and a half to Harrisburg from Miami and explained our situation and why we didn't make it in time to check in the early hours (around 2am) on the 9th. We ended up arriving in the afternoon and the check in process went smoothly, despite some minor issues with the groupon not working (but we got everything fixed!) Mick gave us a room near the field of grass since we also had a dog (which was very thoughtful.) Not only did he and the manager, Geri, offered us bottle of waters for the room (w/o charge), Geri also gave us vouchers for breakfast in the restaurant and both of them reassured us that if we needed anything, to just let them know and they will help us right away. And also, Zac helped me checking out the rooms and was very nice as well and explained everything on the receipt to make sure there weren't any confusion of the fees.
Also, the rooms were clean and the beds are pretty comfortable. My family and I would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area again.

This is my second time staying at The Red Lion Hotel. Once again, the staff at this hotel is AMAZING! They are very friendly and accommodating, and try with-in reason, to meet your every request. Our room was clean, comfortable and updated. The manager Randy, is still by far the most customer oriented manager I have ever met. He goes out of his way to make you feel like an important guest at his hotel! KUDOS to someone that takes their job seriously and LOVES what he is doing! The indoor pool area was closed during our 2 night stay due to seasonal maintenance. This happens at all hotels though and if this is important to you, then I suggest inquiring before your stay. We did try dinner at the hotel this year, and would have to rate it just average. My fillet, although quite tender, was overcooked and my baked potato was undercooked. Our server was wonderful though and we did not complain about the meals.

Room Tip: Suites overlooking the outdoor pool area are very nice.

I stayed at this hotel earlier this month. Room, bath room was clean, bed was comfortable. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed the swim in their pool. Will recommend this hotel in Harrisburg, and will come back again.

We have stayed here several times and the facility and hotel staff are the best. Randy always treats us like we are part of his family. We arrived Saturday afternoon and our room (The Family Suite)was cleaned and ready for our arrival. Every visit we are more and more impressed with the wonderful updates that they continue to do. So we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room and it had that new carpet smell only to see brand new beautiful carpet. The room was very clean and decorated well. My husband said it was the best night sleep he's had in a while on the comfortable mattress. The room was very spacious for our family of five. We had a balcony that over looked the beautiful well kept out door pool, hot tub and children's play area. We did request an extra blanket and within minutes someone was knocking at our door.
We will definitely be back and we always recommend The Red lion Hotel to our out of town friends and family.

My son and i stayed here this weekend. Great room and friendly staff. Although we did not use either the undoor or outdoor pool they looked great. The restaurant can use some help. No decor at all,the seafood buffet was ehhhh nothing special. So if your looking for a place thats clean and close to Hershey for a reasonable price,this is it
