This is the best of the best if you are staying in Hershey. It was perfect for what we needed. The room was large and clean. The manager Larry Shaikh was so kind and helpful. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. The staff as well was very friendly.

For the price, it is OK however nothing classy. It is in a convenient location right next to Hersey park. It isn't the cleanest or nicest hotel however. Our room was relatively small and the bathroom was tiny. We only stayed a couple of nights but, if we had to stay longer, we would have found somewhere to stay. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for three days and found the room to be just what we needed. Large room with two queen beds. The room was clean and the daily room service was timely and adequate. I did not have to request anything; it was done. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The on-site restaurant was good and... More

The staff members were extra friendly and willing to help at any circumstances. the complimentary breakfast were extremely good with a variety of choices. Most importantly, the hotel is a couple of miles from Hershey Park with the... More

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel, however was disappointed that the pool had to be closed. I was given a very nice room on the lower level since there was no elevator for the handicap . The restaurant was very nice and had a large kids menu for which I was grateful. Think they should look into more kids... More

This is our fourth time staying here. Latif Shaikh (Larry) the general manager took such good care of us and told us next year to book again for a great price. Close to Hershey park and prices are reasonable for us every year. We had the balcony room 41 and 42 and were always nice and clean. They even organized... More

If you are looking for lodging near HersheyPark, check out the Howard Johnson Inn. Our family of 4 had a very spacious room on the street-side of the property. The room was clean with new appliances. The staff members were friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered nice variety with a hot entree (at least on the weekend). A great value... More

Latif Shaikh (larry) your general manager was so completely helpful and kind to us. We had a family vacation, myself, my husband and our 5 year old granddaughter. We had had a horrible experience in another hotel the night previous and when I asked Larry if he had a room, he went above and beyond board to help us out.... More
