Worth the money.

The stay was well worth the money. The hotel was very stylish and comfortable. The location was convenient next to the freeway entrance allowing quick travel in any direction. The only negative was a room over the pool. Two children having a good time was quite loud but the 10 pm pool closure was strictly enforced and very quiet from then on. Also the breakfast was'nt great but it was free. The front desk was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Great family vacation

I stayed here with my family when we visited Hershey's park last time. The hotel is only 15 minutes from the park and is conveniently located off 83. The check in process was fast and the staff were very courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean and the complimentary breakfast was also very good. Overall this hotel gets a 5 star from me.

Hershey Park visit.

Not too far from Hershey Park, about 10 minutes. Updated rooms, large flat screen tv, very comfortable king bad. Also had a pull out couch but we didn't use it. Breakfast buffet was at the Irish bar inside the hotel. Hot and cold selection; eggs, bacon, hash browns, hot oatmeal, cereal, donuts, cinnamon rolls, fruit, juices, coffee, tea....trays were always kept full. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I will stay at this hotel again.
