The staff were extremely helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The manager, Randy, was everywhere-always asking if we needed anything. Everything was immaculate. The food in the restaurant was delicious and very reasonably priced. I will absolutely come back and highly recommend this place to anyone coming to the area!!!! Not one complaint!!!!

Stayed here for a 3 day Hershey trip. They have an indoor & outdoor pool! The outdoor pool is the reason I chose Red Lion. My son lives to swim. It's not the newest hotel, but has a very good staff. In addition to the best pool in PA they offer tennis, hot tub, gym and on site restaurant. Great... More

First of all, the amenities at this place could be a vacation in itself. The kids enjoyed the arcade while we checked in. We were upgraded at no additional charge to a bigger and nicer room that they thought the kids would enjoy. Our waiter was hilarious and we even told him to join us he was so nice and... More
