Recent guest reviews

Fine hotel. Good location for walkable dinner locations

Carpets are filthy! Loud engine sounds from outside room window-very difficult to sleep.

Comfortable stay rooms were clean staff very friendly however, pool side was littered. Broken floats (noodles) scattered around the perimeter of pool and used towels on ground. The other downer was the eggs at the breakfast - really poor quality. I don't believe the scrambled eggs were real - perhaps powdered. Was there during Labor Day weekend and the breakfast area was PACKED line down the hallway and the poor woman managing the area could not keep up with the demand - milk not stocked, food trays were frequently empty, pancake mix depleted, demands from guests. I felt bad for her. The location for Hershey was great - only 20 minutes away reasonable pricing for that weekend. We have a dog and that's the reason why we stayed here the pet rate is reasonable ($25). It was nice that they supplied bags for the pets.

Not a bad hotel. Conveniently off 81/83. Places to eat all around.

Checked in late at night...traveling to State College, PA the next day for game day. Booked room that night and room was on the first floor...might have been last room available. The room smelled of mildew and the sheets were wet and damp. It was too late to ask to be moved to another room. The room was also out dated. I would not stay here again for the price there were other hotels in the area that had a competitive rate and would have been nicer.

About twenty minutes from Hershey Park but with the 4th of July and a boy band concert everything was booked. This place fit the bill and the staff stayed cool under fire. Clean comfortable room for us to lay our heads at night. Staff fixed the one issue while we were out for day two. Morning breakfast was a step above as well. Something for everyone.

you have a great list of eating places within walking distance from hotel. anything from fast food to fine dining.

Great service ... Not even 5 minutes from entering at the the front desk and I was in my room unpacking. Counter personnel go out of their way to assist in any detail of my stay. Very convenient location to the capial area (less than 10 mins) Close to many well known restaurants

Desk personnel were very accommodating. Room was very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of coffee always available.

. . . they didn't have a wired network. Everything was all wireless which is NOT a bad thing but for linux geeks like myself that prefer using wired internet connection rather than wired it was a pain. I had to go through hoops and hurdles just to get my internet going(4 hours) and no tech support. Now, other than that hiccup, I wasn't expecting the staff to be linux geeks like myself, the place was very professional, the breakfast was great, and VERY clean. This is was a huge plus for me. I was satisfied that I was treated like they wanted me there and they appreciated that I was there. By the time is was over, we were on a first name basis and having a grand time with the staff. They are good people working there and they made my stay enjoyable even though it was 104 degrees outside!

The hotel does not have a shuttle service to the airport. Although the room was very clean, the carpet was threadbare in spots, the light fixture in the hall was hanging from the ceiling and the toilet wobbled when you used it.

The staff was very hospitable. Even more than in some 5 star hotels I 've been to. Room was clean. Excellent location of interstate and close to restaraunts and shops.

close to lot of restaurants and shopping places. the room is clean and nice. close to highway but still quiet

Stayed one night before heading for Lancaster PA. Nice clean room. Very quiet hotel. Staff was very accomodating by letting my husband leave his car for a few days while we traveled together to Lancaster.

2 days at Hershey Park. Great property, very good breakfast and pool was swell!

Hotel was clean. Some what dated. Breakfast was good, but had to wait sometimes for it to be reloaded. On their website it had an indoor pool, this place does NOT have one. It also showed a children's play area, this hotel did not have one. The service desk was ok, didn't seem too welcoming when we arrived. The best thing about this hotel would be it's location to Hershey. More than likely would not stay there again.

daughter had a a basketball tourney in the harrisburg area and hershey area and the hotel was centrally located and perfect in that respect

Clean and lovely hotel! Had a great experience.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Everything was well stocked. Would recommend to others going in that direction.

Traveled two days to Hershey auto events.
