This is the second trip to the area for me, stayed here both times. In the summer season, things book up fast and the prices are pretty high in name brand hotels. This is a great alternative, very retro and very affordable. The rooms are basic but clean, the staff is competent and flexible. No frills, but a good stay.... More

This little motel was great. I just needed a place to crash while in Hershey for a festival. My room looked recently updated and was extremely clean. Micro and fridge in room was nice. Bathroom looked remodeled as well. Check in and check out ladies were great as well. The only thing that annoyed me was check out is 11am.... More

It's not a "Hotel ", it a motel. It'd not a 5 star and of course it's not a 4 star "hotel ". Motel stands for low rate travel stay. If your passing through and need a place to crash for the night this place is perfect. If you're looking for small, quite, get away place that's small and has... More

Had a wedding nearby and needed a place to spend the night. Needed early access as the wedding started at 2pm and check in was 3 pm. Emailed and requested early access or a place to change. No problem, got there at 12;30 room was ready. Nothing fancy, but clean and quiet. Very helpful staff.

It's very hard to find a reasonably priced place to stay in the area in the summer months. This hotel was retro, nothing fancy but clean and didn't smell musty. The maid staff was great! Bed was comfortable, could use better pillows you may want to bring your own. They do have older rooms and a newER section in the... More

We made reservations for two nights here to escape the cost of hotels in Hershey .... weren't sure what to expect but this little place was wonderful. Rooms were clean and we had plenty of room...I do think that we were in the newer section of the hotel and we asked for a king bed so our room was probably... More

Tough to find affordable lodging in this area during the summer. This was a good find. It is pretty retro, but very clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and cheerful. No amenities, but if you are looking for an inexpensive stay in this part of PA, you could do a lot worse.

The hotel is very basic and affordable. The older style single room (divided cottages) are OK for short stays, but for longer stays get the bigger room. The single room had a small little microwave and refrigerator but was very basic beyond that little perk. The location is better than the Holiday but if you need something from the staff... More
