Might as well sleep under the nearby highway underpass as the noise level from the very nearby highway makes it impossible to sleep. Upon entering the room I had a sense of a foul odor, though it dulled, that is until you re entered the room. As a parting shot the toilet failed before we departed. Not a pleasant stay.

Clean and friendly staff. The lobby is huge with complimentary coffee and lemon water. Huge indoor pool. Only stayed one night. Noise in halls not bad. The room bathroom needs a little attention to updating and cleaning. New caulk would help. Would stay at this hotel again.

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.
