Verified Reviews of Quality Inn Riverfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very poor facility."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I was booked thru a third party for an overnight stay while on the road. All the basic information was said after being guaranteed by the agent that it is a good facility. Upon arriving and assigned a room, we were told that there is no elevator in the facility that we have to carry our suitcases by the stairwell. First I went to the assigned room by myself to check it out and was very dismayed by what I saw. The surroundings were filty, the room we were assigned had manual padlock.

"It was an okay place to stay at."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room seemed to be adequately clean. The hall way, not so much. A large piece of pizza crust was on the stairs going to 1st floor near exit. No place close by to throw away, so picked up with tissue and layed it on windowsill to see how long it would stay there. Didn't want my dog to get it. It had also attracted ants. It remained there during our entire stay. Location didn't lend itself to venturing out no brochures in room with dining options, etc listed. So we ate at your Indian restaurant. The server was wonderful, but we're not crazy about Indian food. I, myself, do not like it. It was an expensive meal esp adding in the fact that we/I didn't enjoy it. Will not return to this location.

"Room was nice check in was bad receptionist was rude."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I had a reservation paid for and when I got to the hotel I was very tired I would say it was 230 am, the receptionist wouldn't check us in she said she was doing her night audit, not only would she not check us in, but she raised her voice at me while telling me she couldn't let us in our room for at least 20 more minute, very rude, would not stay again.

"Would stay again."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel was clean and beds were comfy. Only negative was in the hall, the walls were fine, but ALL the doors were so scratched up and missing paint; it almost was scary at first! We did enjoy the breakfast.

19-Sep-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Sep 16 to Tue Sep 17 2019 at a $97.19 average nightly rate.
"Sub par hotel."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our room was dirty and disgusting. Upon complaining, we received an apology to every member of our family and was upgraded. Our initial room had holes in the wall, smelly carpet, stains on the chairs and walls, the smoke detector was hanging off the wall and the sprinkler system had a plastic bag on it. Our upgraded room was just okay, besides the fact there was blood on the curtain, but we tolerated it. Overall, I would never stay here ever again, nor recommend anyone else to. It is an older hotel that needs a major upgrade. On a positive note, the staff was nice and friendly.

"My stay at Comfort Inn Suites"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The property location was was great, easy access to I-83 North and South. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff and housekeeping were excellent. When I visit Harrisburg PA again I would stay at this property.
