Everything the same as when this was Holiday Inn. Check in people seem to get over-whelmed when busy. Our room wasn't ready upon arrival. Told by girl at desk to "leave and come back later". Room when available was better than expected. King room with balcony. They seemed to have a housekeeping problem that day. Everything else same as before.

I'm here at the hotel now with the family before visiting Hershey Park nearby. We paid in advance for a room with 2 queen beds via Expedia, but were given a room with 2 double beds. I came here primarily due to the availability of Queen beds and paid extra for that at the expense of other hotels that offered... More

The lack of working ice machines was inconvenient, and the hallway carpets need some serious cleaning/updating. However, the rooms were nice and spacious, the price was right, and the two pools (especially the massive outdoor one) were impressive, as was fitness center. Staff was courteous and helpful. I will stay here again.

I was not impressed by this hotel. For the price, I expected more. The carpets, especially in the hallways, were really aged and worn. Also, when we arrived around 10 pm, we had to wait about 20 minutes to be checked in. After driving for 4 hours with two children in the car, that is the not the type of... More

My family stayed here for a night. The staffs are very nice and friendly. Lobby is very bright. Cafe also is great. The best is the swimming pools (Indoor and outdoor). My daughter loves it. Only thing is the hotel is relative old and some point remodeling is recommended.
