In serious need of demolition and rebuild
Posted Sep 16, 2016
The pictures on Expedia must have been taken 25 years ago or your Photoshop specialist is really good. They have a weird policy about check in, we got to the hotel at 2:25 and were told that check in was not until 3pm. It is not like they have an army of maids that start cleaning at 2 and get done at 3Pm. The blond front desk clerk at daytime could learn some manners but I guess the Harrisburg airport that manages this place does not require him to be nice to people that may be tired from traveling a long day. So we came back after 4 only to find the Fire Department in the antique building and all guests and employees in the parking lot, only to wait another 90 minutes until the problem was determined to be a false alarm due to some wiring problem in their system.
We finally got to our room and eventually went to bed only to be awakened 3 hours later by a mob of French tourists trying unsuccessfully to open our door, they insisted it was their room, once again the front desk had double booked the room and in the altercation (I don't speak French) I had to tell them "#$@, let me sleep and go back to the front desk, Pardon my French" they did but it took me another hour to fall asleep for two short hours to get back on the road.
All in all it was like a third world hotel experience that reminded me of a motel chain back in the seventies that had a rate of 8 dollars per room, you know which I am talking about. The picture is misleading and Expedia knows it
