I consider this hotel very good, but not excellent. The rooms are pretty nice and comfortable, but you could tell they're aged a little when you compare this Holiday Inn to one that's brand new, such as the New Cumberland one. Also, there were a few minor annoyances during my stay: - I could hear people in the other room....

Good hotel. Many towels. Many supplies. A good place for a restful night. The desk clerk gave us a coupon fir a free App at a local restaurant. That alone was an $8 item. Near plenty of shopping. I would stay here anytime.

Was working in Mechanicsburg, hotel was very handy. Nice staff, good clean room, close to many restaurants. Breakfast is what you normally expect at Holiday Inn Expresses. Only negative for me is the parking area. There are so many little "islands" with grass or trees on them that a lot of parking space is wasted. Makes it very hard for...

I will echo the other comments regarding the staff, very friendly and willing to do whatever they could to help. Unfortunately, the hotel itself is pretty beat up. My first room had tattered carpets, dusty corners, pillows smelled unwashed, peeling molding on the closet door, and a large brown stain on the side of the mattress. The halls were very...

This place is in need of some updates, and could use a good airing out. The entire hotel is supposed to be smoke free, but we had a neighbor that was smoking and it seeped into our room. The staff was excellent and would be the one reason to recommend this place to others.

Before I list negatives I must say the staff here is wonderful and some of the nicest I have ever encountered. Very helpful and always smiling. Now for the negatives...this is, undoubtedly, an older property and the sound proofing is not good.

Front desk staff are nice and helpful. Rooms are laid out well and in nice condition generally. The location is good for restaurants, stores, and highway access. I've stayed here multiple times and would stay here again. My only complaint would be that housekeeping does seem to miss things. But overall, I think this is a good place to stay...
