Weekend stay

Exterior area was disappointing. Several dead bushes needed pulled, leaves in planting beds needed raked. After killing three flying beetles in our room. we settled in. The room was very tight, including an extra small vanity. Three dead insects in shade over lights outside our door. Shade over vanity lights was cracked in two places.tile by bath tub was cracked. Surprised these items pass HIE inspections. Front desk staff was friendly. Very close to Hersheypark and many restaurants.

GIRLS NIGHT

The hotel was very clean and the room comfortable. However the description stated that the hotel was 11 miles from the center of Elizabethtown where my daughter goes to college. I went down to see her orchestra concert and expected a short drive to the hotel and we drove over a half hour and not the short drive I had anticipated. For that I would not stay there again.

Nicest in town

Stayed in the hotel for two nights while doing business in Hershey. The room was clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. There's a railroad track right behind the hotel, but couldn't hear it at all during the night.

Great access to Hershey Park

Comfortable beds, working pool and hot tub, decent (although average) breakfast buffet, free WiFi, nice location and VERY helpful staff. Hotel currently has a deal with Gold's Gym across the street where your room key gets you access as a guest. Gas station across the street, Wendy's and McDonalds and a couple other restaurants nearby. Wasn't happy with the Bob Evans next door, but there are lots of options in the area. Giant Supermarket location is 3-4 miles away if you want to buy discounted Hershey Park tickets. A/C worked well although a little old, bathroom nice and clean although no fan to help vent steam. In room fridge, microwave, coffee maker and iron were all nice and in working condition. If we visit Hershey again in the future, we will probably stay here.

Bob Evans next door was a poor experience and not typicaly of other Bob Evans I've been in. Burnt/overcooked pancakes, slow service, etc.

Great hotel in a Great Location

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was about 2 miles away from downtown Hershey so there is a lot to do close by. It is also located by a few stores and places to eat and is right off the highway. Great Place to stay, continental breakfast included too which was very convenient.

Hershey's track and field North American Final

I am a PE teacher from North Louisiana and one of my students made the North American Finals that Hershey's hosts. I wanted to be able to support her and be as close to her and her schedule of events and this hotel and location was absolutely perfect to ALL events and the airport location as well! I would definately stay here again and recommend to others whether for business or leisure :)

Nothin Special

When we got out of Hershey Park, we did not have a reservation anywhere, so I walked in to find a room. The front desk agent seemed almost annoyed and put out that I was asking him the going rate on a room. I understand that it's late and you may have had a bad day but hospitality is your business, so SHOW IT! After we got settled we asked for a late check out and it was granted. But were suprised when housekeeping came knocking at 9:30 to clean the room. We got up to the room with no issues or problems. The room was clean. The only thing is that my family adn I wished breakfast ran a little later than the 9:30 cutoff.

Undisclosed Information

Our overall stay was just okay. To stay there for two nights was fine, but we would have preferred more luxurious hotel accomodations for a longer stay. When we walked in the first thing we noticed was a stale odor (like they used to allow smoking). The outside entrance nor lobby were very inviting and the man at the front desk did not look very professional. He was nice, but his sleeves were unbuttoned and he looked like he was just hanging out behind the desk. When we got into our room the first thing we did was clean all surfaces with disinfecting wipes (we would do that no matter where we stayed), but here the refrigerator needed to be wiped out. Even the rubber molding around the refrigerator door NEEDED to be cleaned. The entire room was dusty as if it hadn't been used in a while. The ice machine was leaking and the carpet in front of it was soaked. I guess they thought the towel at the base of the machine was going to do the trick. They were wrong! The pool was very small and the used towel bin had towels piled so high they were beginning to become part of the wall. We were surprised by the freight train that passed the hotel several times throughout the day. PROS: nice location, just minutes from Hershey attractions and tons of eateries; friendly staff; economical. CONS: odor throughout hotel; FREIGHT TRAIN; lack of cleanliness throughout hotel; Bottom line: If you want a cheap, EXPRESS (quick) getaway this is your spot. If you want to feel completely comfortable you should stear clear of this hotel.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Plenty of fastfood eateries and restaurants a short drive away (like 30 seconds to 3 minutes from the hotel). However, if you want to order in go for Palermo! They had quick delivery and everything we ordered was GREAT!
