Stayed for three nights for Hershey Park visit with two kids.They loved the indoor pool the first night since it was raining and park was out. We liked everything about this hotel and the short 15 minute drive to the park was well worth it for the reasonable price. We had breakfast two mornings (kids eat free) and late dinner... More

Great Hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are very clean and modern, shower could use an upgrade, but it did its job. Otherwise everything was great. We had a room overlooking the indoor pool, Got real loud when a bus of camp kids showed up, but management quickly took control of the area in a professional manor.... More

This was out first time visiting Hershey Park. We were in a budget and looked through trip advisor to find a budget conscience hotel. This hotel has a sign that says Exceeding your expectations not your budget, and they did this extremely well. The room was ok, had a few repairs that could have been made, but the staff is... More

This hotel definitely earns the name Premier! Splendid lobby view as you enter. Our family had 3 guestrooms - all were spacious, clean, great showers, comfortable beds - perfect. Hotel staff filled our request to be on lower floor, with 3 rooms near one another. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! Would definitely stay if we travel... More
