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!

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

When arriving at this hotel I was a little skeptical from it's exterior but was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and equipped with a microwave and mini-fridge. The beds were very comfortable and the room was nice and warm on a very cold night. The bathroom had only a shower - I prefer a tub - but since we... More

I stayed in this hotel in mid-August. Was dissatisfied with rudeness of front-desk indian guy. Then their manager Larry bothered us and asked to write a good comment about him on the site. When I was departing overheard as Larry said the girl in the laundry use a clean rags as cloth towels. Never again I will not stop at... More

Took a very quick trip for business reasons to Hershey. The price was by far the most reasonable in the area. My room was nice and quiet, the only issue was the breakfast...there was nothing hot except for the coffee.
