My husband and I stayed at the much more upscale Sheraton in downtown Boston and we actually thought this room was nicer--just as clean and comfortable, but larger and with more amenities like a kitchenette. We were in and out for a niece's wedding, but would have found it a very restful place to stay longer.

Recently spent a Saturday night and we (husband & wife, adult daughter plus a dog) were pleased by the hospitality of the front desk staff. We arrived just a bit more than 3 hours earlier than check-in time with the intent of merely leaving one of our two cars in the parking lot, exploring the Lancaster area and returning late... More

Labor day weekend price was $178 for a 2star hotel. A search on the HIE website for a pool brought this hotel up. We stayed over in PA especially so the kids can have pool time. On check-in we were informed pool was 3 miles offsite with a $5 fee per person. Really? In America? I now learned to call... More

Surprisingly comfortable and very roomy. We had the room with two queens and a pull out sofa. Lots of room for the family. Only about 10 min to the PA Renfaire which was great since that was the reason for the stay. Closer hotels were booked. Also close to hershey. Free breakfast was a bonus. Good variety but it was...

Overall our experience was okay, except for the horrible damp smell of mildew and mold of our room. Everything in the room felt wet. For the price we paid (which was a lot) I would have expected something better. Through out the night you could hear the A/C leaking onto the carpet, which was probably the cause for the awful...

We chose this hotel because it was directly between Hershey & Lancaster which were the two places we would be visiting during our 5 day excursion. Although our reservations for 2 rooms had been made months in advance, upon arrival we were told we were going to have to be moved after spending only one night in one room but... More

Location was good--about 15 minutes outside of Hershey and very close to Amish Country--Old PA Tpke. The room was great. Comfy beds and pillows and very clean. A little strange to have the sink in the room a foot away from the bed but for one night it was not a big deal. We used the pull out couch which... More

When you go to a brand name hotel, you hope for no surprises. That was the case with this Holiday Inn Express. Well located just off the 283 highway, with quite easy access to Elizabethtown College where we were attending a conference. The room was spacious and clean; the WiFI worked fine.
