We truly appreciate all of the great service given to our family this past weekend. Larry Shaikh, the General Manager, went above & beyond what we could have expected and we were not disappointed. I flew up from Florida to spend a special weekend with my son, daughter-in-love & grandson. The location of this hotel was perfect for what we... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Howard Johnsons in Hershey PA. We stayed here after seeing a show at the Hershey theatre. We were greeted by Mr. Shaikh and he was very pleasant and kind. He upgraded our rooms (2) without us even asking. The rooms were clean and spacious and we absolutely loved the pillows! We enjoyed breakfast... More

While traveling in eastern Pa., it was late and needed an inexpensive room for some sleep. I was lucky to have found the Howard Johnson Inn on the main street in Hershey at a great price. I arrived late from my travels and was greeted by a very friendly and helpful desk lady. She advised me that the manager, Larry... More

Room was clean, quiet and well lit. Larry the General manager provided service far above what one would expect. Just 5 minutes to Hershey Park. Can't recommend this property highly enough. If you stay here I'm sure Larry will make sure you aren't disappointed.

The room was great. It had everything we needed. The only thing that was not cool was the shower had a curved rod that had half unhooked so the curtain hung in the middle only.

I would've ranked it as 4.5 if I had the option. This is a great place to stay in--located less than 2 miles away from the Hershey attractions. It's near to everything! Our gracious host was Larry Shaik, who gladly upgraded our room (we booked through a discount booking site) without us asking. He was the one who assisted us... More

The chair in the room as well as the bedding were very badly stained and the mattress was uncomfortably soft. The complementary breakfast was set out early, but did not seem fresh as the case for the pastries was broken and things like milk were not kept on ice.

Latif was very courteous and helpful. We locked ourselves out of the room within 5 minutes of being there. He set us up with new keys and no hassle. The beds were soft and the room was comfortable. Bathrooms are small but renovated and look very nice. Restaurant looked and smelled amazing, although we did not have time to eat.

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our trip to see the Hershey Bears play! Bathroom was re-done, looked great! Beds were extremely comfortable too! Larry the General Manager could not have been more helpful, he was just the nicest person to deal with during our stay! No complaints and would for sure recommend this hotel to friends and family!...
