This was the perfect place to stay to visit Hershey park. We just needed a place for 2 days to sleep after spending the day at the park. This motel fit the bill perfectly. It's within walking distance to the park and there is a Rite Aid two house down that has a mini mart so you can stock up... More

Our family of four recently stayed at Simmons Motel to visit Hershey Park. Pros: very close to Hershey Park, friendly staff, reasonably priced. Cons: outdated, musty smell in room (it did dissipate once we turned the ac on), no frills (no hair dryer, shampoo, etc.). Overall we had a decent stay. If you don't mind the décor and bringing your... More

This motel is just round the corner to the Hershey experience. There aren't any coffee making facilities but it does have a fridge and a microwave if you need them. Make sure you bring your own toiletries as they don't have any in the room. Well ventilated and the AC works well.

My wife and I have stayed at Simmons twice the past ywo memorial day weekends. It's like staying at a family home rather than a commercial cookie cutter hotel. I love the atmosphere, the location and the staff. The owner is a sweet heart.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit Hershey park as part of a 9 day vacation to the area. Pros: -Incredibly clean - like impossibly clean, semi shag carpet felt brand new and white grout was still white. -Very friendly - staff were polite and helpful. Marnie is incredible. Whitney is eager to please but if your request has... More

I booked a stay May 2014 to celebrate a birthday. The day of my reservation, I called to confirm, but while on the phone noticed that my reservation date was for the following night. I had meant to book for Saturday, but accidentally booked Sunday. I spoke with Whitney Simmons, and he was incredibly understanding, and went out if his... More

We decided to take my mom to Hershey for her birthday along with our two children. The price was really good, and the website made it look like a nice quaint place. The first thing was when we checked in we had booked our hotel on one card, but they assured us we could pay with a different card. It... More

We had an issue with the cleanliness of our first room, so we were switched to a 2nd room. Unfortunately the 2nd room wasn't much better. The shower had old soap in it and some globs of hair . Beds were okay, walls are paper thin, however the motel is in a great location (walking distance to Hershey). The owner... More

I am so very sorry about the confusion concerning you room assignment. A major difference I have found between a corporate-run and family-run guest residence is that in the latter variety, new staff members get thrown into the deep end of the pool quicker! :) I am also sorry that the condition of your room wasn't acceptable. That is something... More

Pros: I have to say I was shocked at how close this was to Hershey and the town. Everything was walking distance. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The cons: the beds were extremely hard and the pillows were terrible. There was no clock in the room which was weird. There was also a musty smell.

I am so glad you found our location convenient, but am sorry that your stay wasn't as comfortable as you had hoped... We are in the process of replacing beds, and refurbishing rooms. I agree that alarm clocks are needed in the rooms, and am hoping to have them very soon. Also, spring cleaning and painting are happenning as we... More
