There was no one at the desk to check in when we got there. You have to call and press zero. Someone comes down in a few minutes. We arrived an hour early and were able to check in no hassles. However....the tub had used shampoo bottles from the last occupants, the walls showed signs of water damage, the clock... More

Stayed here for one night. At $200 for the night, there's no way I'd go back. The room was very tight and dingy. The age definitely showed. The carpet was sticky and the beds uncomfortable. It is right next to the golf course and very close to Hershey Park. But I'd rather stay further away than stay here again.

I have no complaints about the stay. All the workers and management went out of their way to accommodate my 2 children and myself. Loved staying with you. Would recommend highly. Had greater time than expected. Thank you.

We were very disappointed with the quality of room we had for the $200+ we spent for one night...We have stayed at a EconoLodge for $85 and had a better quality room. The Howard Johnson's room was dirty, paint coming off the walls, the phone didn't work, stains on the floor, the refrigerator was not clean...overall dirty and unkempt appearance.... More

a little disappointing. being a hojo i was expecting a little more than what was basically a glorified motel. rooms are in serious need of a makeover. paid around $170-180/night b/c so close to hershey park and peak season otherwise not worth price.

Room WAYYYYYYYYY overpriced. Charge for 2 night -- $330. Room not worth more than $50-$60 per night. For what's worth, I would recommend doing some research into another hotel and stay at this hotel as a very last resort. Could have used the vacuum along the edges of the walls.
