This Econo Lodge is near to the highway and perfect for a nightly stay while traveling. I paid under $60 for a very large room with double queen bed. The room was nicely made and clean. Bathroom was ok. Staff is courteous. Except for a little bit dark and dingy lobby, this Hotel is worth it!

April 2013, I reserved a King Efficiency Suite at this EL for 5 nights in March 2014, a year in advance. We needed the larger space with a kitchen because we were attending a National dog show with our dog and were staying a longer period. I chose this hotel because it was close to the Farm Show Complex where... More

I have stayed at many hotels and hostels over the years and I can say that this hotel was awful. The room was dirty. I don't think that it has been updated since it opened. At one point my room was not even made. This came the day after the fact that housekeeping did not leave enough towels in my... More

Awful, I would sleep in a compact car before staying here again. All I need to rate is the huge hair with follicle under the pillow and the smell of urine on the sofa bed. I don't want to think about it anymore that.

This hotel had really drove off a cliff since we were there years ago when it was owned by Best Western. The hot tub was broken and had been drained with green water at the bottom! The rooms were dated with no flat screen tvs, and the outlet look like it short circuited and could not be used! The location... More

We've been going to Hershey Park for eight years and have never stayed in a worse hotel.Our room stunk, it felt damp and moldy. The heat lamp in the bathroom was exposed and had no lightbulb in it. The toilet kept clogging. There was no water pressure and the tub was falling apart. The electrical outlet near the air conditioner... More
