Then front desk staff was so friendly and kind, they always had a smile no matter the time.

This was my 2nd time here, but disappointed not having a working a/c my 1st night with two kids and handed a fan to make do for the night, Pool hours did not reflect the 10 pm as the website stated they closed at 5 pm gave us no actual time to enjoy it after being out in extremely hot weather. Housekeeping was not cleaning Bathrooms correctly from check-in it was dirty to even after she cleaned it the next day. The mini-fridge was disgusting inside and it was just too overwhelming dealing with all the bad we made do but won't be returning.

What a nice, friendly and affordable hotel. Completely satisfied with my stay, starting from the checking process. Asked for a specific room location, to be close to other family members room. Asked twice if I need any additional supplies or towels. Highly recommend! :)

Hotel was very clean. Staff was super nice (though housekeeping tried to key into our room like 4 times). Lobby was pretty and some rooms faced inward (towards the lobby or pool).

Clean room. Friendly staff. Nice pool. Only stayed one night. Checked in late. Didn’t get to fully enjoy hotel.

Beautiful lobby, tiled roomy showers. Very nice hotel.

Pleasantly surprised as we just booked the hotel last minute. We got the family suite which was huge. It had a one bedroom with a king bed and two queen beds outside. The indoor heated pool was also great and a nice area. My son enjoyed it so much when we would swim after a day at Hersheypark which is only 20 mins away. Staff were very very nice and accommodating. My son was given a complimentary Hershey bar when we checked in. Lobby is nice and big with complimentary coffee, tea and refreshing fruit infused water. The only thing negative I can give is that the carpets are quite old and would need to be replaced soon and perhaps a paint job to make it fresh and updated. However, they are keeping it clean so it is still very good overall. Will stay here again.

Great hotel close to Hershey park. Kids love it and definitely will use this best western

Was a great experience. Will defiantly stay again.

The hotel is beautiful and clean. Pool and gym are also very nice. Only bad thing about this hotel was the food option, they have a restaurant called O’Reilly’s connected had to wait 30 minutes for a table even though restaurant didn’t seem to be full. Waitress was rude and in a hurry took our order then didn’t see her again. Later a diffèrent waitress came with some drinks and asked the rest in the group what drinks they ordered. Later came the food but not our apps we didn’t say anything and started eating then the apps came when we almost done with our meal. The food was not great and would not eat there again after all this. Also restaurant was almost empty while we were eating and took forever to get a waitress to bring our check. Very unorganized and seems they don’t want customers.

Very nice hotel - I recommend if you're trying to go to Hershey and not pay the premium of staying in Hershey. It's about 12-15 minutes to get to HersheyPark and the other attractions from here. The hotel itself is clean and the food at O'Reilly's inside the hotel is good as well.

We’re here for one night only and have no complaints. It’s convenient for our trip to Gettysburg and on to Philadelphia. The hotel seems a little dated but clean and comfortable and we would definitely consider staying here again.

A 10 minute drive from Hershey Park that retains Hershey charm. Well appointed lobby and guest rooms. Beautifully large swimming pool and small game arcade. People sensitive with asthma may have a reaction to the amount of chlorine used in the pool area. Delicious buffet breakfast that is reasonably priced.

Nice hotel in a good location. Thought free breakfast was included however it was not.

As expected, staff was pleasant and courteous. This is second stay at this hotel and will surely stay again in the future. We asked for directions for a specific store and we were given printed directions. O Reilly's was very enjoyable. Great food, friendly service.
