This was a last minute find, a gem. We were in a bind after we left a horrible Days Inn in Harrisburg, PA. Pleasantly surprised upon finding the location. The outside very nice &'presentable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room smelled and looked clean and pleasant. Very roomy in comparison to other rooms of similar hotels we've stayed in... More

An early morning doctor appointment and messy weather forecast convinced me to book a room and drive down the night before. Booked this hotel based on decent online reviews and $65 total price with tax. On the positive, the hotel is clean and conveniently located, the bed was comfortable (even though it didn't look it at first), wifi is fast... More

Decent place. Nothing fancy. Room was a little small. Has the basics. But it's a bed and a roof over your head, at half the price of the Hampton next door. Worked fine for a couple for a night, but probably wouldn't want to stay for an extended stay. What if..... is the restaurant underneath the lobby. Is quite nice,... More

This is a really great place to stay if on a buget! The room were clean, service was good and the price was great. Very close to all ofthe Hershey attractions, and close to Harrisburg. This is a great place for families to stay.

Not only did we get 2 full size beds instead of the king I asked for, the room was dirty, bathroom was dirty, bedding smelled and the walls so thin everything could be heard from the hall and room next door! I would find another place to stay instead of an over priced, dirty, noisy Howard Johnson room in Hershey!

First foom assigned was dark and desolate down behind main building (#22). Checked in and light over bed was not working. Moved the bed stand out and plugged in the light. Horrors of filth on floor behind bedstand. Asked front desk for a different room. They did and second room much better. Interesting restaurant downstairs and behind motel--great staff there... More

I stayed here for one night to see a Hershey Bears hockey game and visit Chocolate World. I figured it was only for one night and didn't want to spend a ton of money. Check in was good and the room I got was around back. When I got to the room everything looked okay when I walked in. After... More
