We stayed here 3 years ago under a different name and ownership and it was ok. We paid $249 for a dump of a room, a remaining pot of coffee from the prior group, overwhelmed staff, and disgusting breakfast. Pick anywhere else

The rooms were dated, the carpet was dirty and the room smelled musty. I would have expected to pay $100 less then what we were charged. The location close to Hersey Park must be why they think they can charge what they do. But I was not impressed. In the morning, there was only one person working, trying to do... More

We called the phone # listed on the internet. We were pleased with the price but were not told that "delux" rooms costing more were even available. We ordered a roll-away bed and were informed that it would be $15 more, which was fine with us. When we arrived, we were given a tiny room with queen beds but the... More

Choose again. They didn't make the beds. They didn't replace the towels. If you stay here, go to the pantry next door, don't bother with the free breakfast. The place is in the heart of hershey motel land but it is far from worth what you will pay. Close to town and hershey. This was the first and hopefully only... More

The hotel is old and needs an update. our room was outback and it is nice and peaceful out there. The Bathroom had a moldy shower curtain and hair on the floor. We found a pair of stinky black socks under the sink. I would not go back if I had a choice.

Take your money some place else! Although this hotel is in a location convenient to all of the local attractions, it is sub par to say the least! When we arrived, our room smelled as if it had been cleaned with a dirty toilet brush. With further inspection, we realized it probably hadn't been cleaned much. The carpet was dusty,... More

we wanted something close to Hershey park, without paying a fortune. this was perfect for just sleeping and showering. the bed was not comfortable, but it was late when we got there, and were exhausted, not too much of a problem. very small room, but good for 2 people. the continental breakfast got us going in the morning! really bad...
