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

This was my second stay at this motel after finding it on Trip Advisor. It is half the price of the other place in town. I have stayed in the "new section"-probably 40 years old. But the rooms are clean. The t.v. is awesome. There are many channels for those of us who love to channel surf.

The only other place in town was full. I read the reviews of The Red Rose and decided to take a chance. I am glad that I asked for the new section. The room was probably 40 years old but it was clean and large enough. The beds were comfortable. The towels were good. The TV service was a dish.... More

I needed a cheap place to stay for a family wedding and this place was perfect. It was right in the area with food and gas nearby, the rate was inexpensive, and the quality of the room was good. The bed was comfy, although the a/c didn't work (the heat did though!) I would recommend bringing a pair of flip... More
