Everyone is courteous & has a... More

I booked this hotel because it was much cheaper than staying in Hershey. I was excited because of all the positive reviews on tripadvisor. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed in person. I'm not a complainer and always make the best of every situation, however, it was the little things that this hotel overlooks that bothered me. First off, it needs some... More

Our room, a family suite, was large and clean. Excellent indoor and out door pool and kids play ground. Two game rooms, a bar and a restaurant. Convenient location. Best of all was the extremely friendly and helpful staff.

The building is slightly dated but is clean. The amenities/accommodations are nice with indoor/outdoor pools, hot tub and playground. The staff (especially Randy) are very pleasant and attentive to your needs. I found it to be a good bang-for-the buck stay. I'd come back. My kids loved it.
