Recent guest reviews

needed a room for 2 nights for our trip to Hershey (which was a easy 10 mins away on 1 rd ) . picked it because it was cheap and close. didn't need anything fancy. it def wasn't anything fancy. room was adequate and a good size. def outdated. had free breakfast. including juice coffee self serve making waffles and light fare. beds were harder then we liked. and OK hotel for a quick night stay but not for a long over trip. seemed to be more of a trucker hotel and construction workers stay.

NICE HOTEL CLOSE TO THE AREA I WANTED TO VISIT BREAKFAST WAS GOOD WOULD USE THE HOTEL AGAIN IF IN THE AREA

The hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice. The free breakfast was OK and included cereal donuts waffles French toast sticks bagels toast coffee and juice. Very close to Hersheypark and the casino.

The hotel is ideally located for a stop on a long drive. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was quite comfortable and the room also had a microwave and refrigerator. The free breakfast was minimal and there was almost no room to sit and eat. If you are looking for a clean quiet place to spend a night while traveling this is a pretty good value.

I must say, this motel was the worst stay I have ever experienced. The room was filthy, with bugs, dirty carpets and to top it off they gave me a smoking room even though I requested non smoking.....I left the following morning with a migraine caused by the smell! If the room cost 50 a night I would have understood but the cost was 3X that price....Not only would I not recommend this place, I will not use this travel site anymore because I believe they owe it to their loyal customers to not allow horrible businesses on their site!

TV in rooms kept losing signal. The rooms had a musty smell to them.

Bargain price for a hotel near Hershey - 6 miles away and easy to get to Hershey attractions but much cheaper than anything in Hershey. Staff promptly handled a few of problems (room key not working, plugged toilet, not enough towels)but acted like they were doing us a big favor. Room was clean and comfortable, hotel a little run down overall but not bad. Equipment in fitness room didn't work.

Hard to find behind gas station. Stained carpet, lobby dimly lit, tiny breakfast area, not worth the money.

The staff and hotel was great the only thing That I would have liked to see were some chairs and tables out side so you can sit out and relax and enjoy the outdoors, rather than having to stay in the room after the days outing.

This hotel is small and very quiet. It is set back from the road with a big field around it. It is also very close to all Hershey attractions. The only bad thing is that it didnt have tubs which is what my kids need but it did have HUGE showers!!

The Howard Johnson's in Hershey was absolutely disgusting. We only spent less than an hour there before checking out paying for a room across the street. It was dirty, water leaking in the window of the room and in the lobby. There were countless spiders and ants in our room and dead bugs all over the floor in the so-called fitness room which was just an unused hotel room with 3 old pieces of equipment in it. There was mold in the fridge, filthy microwave, beds smelled like urine, floor was filthy. Worst hotel I have ever had the displeasure of entering. Not to mention the manager was a complete jerk. He was sitting on the couch in the lobby smoking in a nonsmoking hotel and playing on his computer and didn't seem concerned at all about the water leaking all over. When we did check out, the manager was gone, and the girls behind the desk could barely speak English and they tried charging us for the 3 previous nights saying my husband was some ohter man that had been staying in that room! Unbelieveable! Because of this hotel, we had to come home early. It completely ruined our vacation. They more or less robbed us of our money and treated us like dirt. Never ever go to this hotel.
