This was a perfect hotel for our large family for our 1st trip to Hershey Park. From the moment we walked in everyone was friendly and helpful. The 2 bedroom suite fit our family of 6, the kids (all under 12) ate free at the restaurant, and we were very pleased. The pool is large and everything in the hotel... More

Past 3 years have stayed here for annual trip to Hershey . Great customer service, very family friendly staff, restaurant on premise. Just ask for a room NOT adjacent to the pool as it can tend to be noisey being an inside pool.

Beautiful hotel just 17 minutes from Hershey Park. We booked the hotel for our family vacation via Costco travel. Clean, no signs of deferred maintenance, helpful staff. They even sell discounted tickets to Hershey Park. Highly recommended!

My son enjoyed the complementary Hershey bar he was given. The room was clean, comfortable and in good order, though... More
