My Mother and Son stayed over for 1 night on a little vacation to Hershey. It was super close and convenient so I booked it through Hotwire. It had a perfect indoor pool for an evening of fun! The rooms were clean and new looking. The fridge was super convenient. There was a Giant Supermarket nearby as well. The game... More

The hotel is convenient to local attractions. The restaurant is attached, and has reasonable prices and great food so you do not have the leave the hotel. The servers at the restaurant are pleasant and make you feel welcome. The hotel staff at check in is very friendly and helpful.

I did not enjoy the hallway from the back of the hotel (where our room was located), the rug was worn and smelly. So we simply found an alternate way to... More
