Recent guest reviews

The hotel front desk people are rude. Very dirty from the lobby all the way to the guest rooms. Lots of things need to be fixed or repaired. Ice machine didn't work nor did the juice machine at breakfast.

Hotel was clean. By you could hear everything, also the bed had a bubble in the middle felt like you would fall off the edge. Not sure if the flipped the mattresses recently or what. Needless to say, didn't sleep to well.

The hotel staff was nice, however the room did not seem to be super clean. The carpet felt a bit sticky and just overall needs some updating. For the 100.00 we paid I believe we could've found something better in the same area.

Checking in was no problem, but it was downhill after that. The elevator was in terrible condition and so bumpy and noisy that one young lady chose to walk up 4 flights of stairs with her luggage rather than ride it. The room was reasonably clean, nice and large, and had a small fridge and microwave, which was nice. The shower shrieked noisily during the entire time my daughter was using it. Also, there was hair on the shower wall.The toilet seat slipped when we sat on it, and we couldn't reach the toilet paper from the toilet. The blankets on the beds were so thin that we were unaware of their existence until we peeled back the covers, and did nothing to provide warmth. The entire hotel needs updating as the carpets and paint were worn thin. When I went down for breakfast, I was happy to see a waffle machine, but the waffle tasted like someone had poured lemon juice in the batter. It was awful! When I asked him, the clerk said that they were out of butter, and although the night clerk had promised instant oatmeal for my daughter who must eat gluten free, there was none, and nothing that she could eat, not even an apple or banana. I tried the cereal but it was stale. In the end I threw it all out and we went to Mc Donald's.

The hotel was much smaller than expected. The rooms were very tight and parking was difficult for a truck. This hotel would be good for one person staying for one night but not recommend for family.

Nice clean hotel great restaurants nearby within walking distance

I just needed a bed and shower. That is pretty much what you get here. I was surprised the hotel was as good as it was for an Econo Lodge. I was in the Hershey chocolate parking lots in less than 10 min from the hotel. Front desk was a little tough to communicate with. If all Econo Lodges were like this one I would stay at them more often.

I stay here because of the location being median to areas of business I need to travel to and also to visit Hershey Park with the kids. It doesn't beat home, but it's a good alternative for a night or two.
