This was not a pleasant stay in any way. We were not greeted by Janet at the front desk. She apparently hates her job and did her best to annoy us. She was rude and condescending. It continually amazes me that I'm treated as though THEY are spending THEIR money and not the other way around. Things didn't get better.... More

Upon checking In I asked for a King bed. The Clerk said "how about a Queen" I assumed they didn't have a King bed room. We got in the room and it was a standard two queen room with one of the beds missing, there was a big open space where the other bed should have been. The mirror was... More

This hotel is NOT Pet Friendly even though information online sometimes says it is. If you go to the PA Farm Expo for dog shows, just be aware that it is in the premium lists as allowing pets but that is much outdated as this hotel has gone through many changes of hand under many different hotel names - Capital...

Stayed here during the Farm show event. They are renovating , but if that does not bother you it is a nice location. 3 minute drive to the farm show. We stayed for 8 nights. We were in a partially renovated room, nice new bathroom and beds. The front desk lady told us they were getting all new furniture. Dina... More

Needed a clean, safe place near Hershey Park for one night, but didn't want to pay a fortune. And that's exactly what I got.The property is undergoing renovations so the pool was closed. In my room, there were light bulbs in only a few of the fixtures. Hot but no cold water in the sink. Exposed wires near the temperature... More

We were given a newly renovated room and found out later we were the first ones to stay in it. Despite the renovations it was awful. We couldn't close the curtains, the ceiling plaster was sprayed into the track and had dried. Some of the plaster chunks and dust had fallen into the A/C vents so when it blew, the... More

At first this hotel seemed okay, but it kept getting worse. The check-in clerk was fine and helpful, but after we checked we found that the toilet did not flush. My husband tried to fix it, but it still didn't work. One of the beds had a small stain that did not look like it had been washed. We then... More

It was a pleasure being welcomed by Jack when we arrived. He took care of us well. I made some minor suggestions to management upon checkout, but did not note any significant problems and therefore recommend this hotel.
