I was a little nervous about booking after reading some of the reviews, but we loved this place so much, I just have to gush a little about it! We made reservations for 4 adults and 2 teenagers for the PIAA Basketball Championships (yep, we won!!!) for a 1 night stay. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment, which was actually... More

We stayed here for one night so that we could take our kids to Hershey Parks Christmas Candylane and to The Day out with Thomas event on Sunday in Lancaster. We arrived at the hotel early and the owner was very nice and let us check in early. Our room had 2 rooms and a shared bathroom. The rooms were... More

First off, we arrived late around 8:30pm so the "house keeper" apparently is the one that checked us in and told us that "Pet Fee" was included in charge we were quoted. So we thought all was set...boy were we wrong. When we went to leave the next morning, the "owner" said that he was charging us $100 for sneaking... More

I am not sure why these persons are saying my staff was rude however, I do train my staff to treat people with the utmost respect like they would want to be treated. Moreover, it is posted on our web site that we no longer allow pets in our motel, we have had pets cause a lot of damage being... More

There are so many things that we did not like with this motel & our room. Yes, it was one of the least expensive motels in the area, but certainly not worth what we paid for. First of all, the room smelled like urine. Not all the outlets worked in the room. The refrigerator smelled horrid of mold. The air... More

Our motel is not for everyone however, if these guests had so many problems with the room why did they stay. Moreover, as far as the room smelling like mold and urine this statement is untrue because out rooms are cleaned twice a week with bleach to kill any mold spores. While some of our pillows are flat and they... More

My wife and I have stayed at this motel a few times. Each time we were given the same room. We dubbed it "our room". The motel is basic, but given the price and location, it was all that was needed. I look forward to the next time we visit and hopefully we will get "our room" again!

This was our second trip to the Simmons Motel. I guess its ok if you want inexpensive accommodations in Hershey, where a room at the Hershey Hotel can cost you north of $400 and a room at a mid-level chain like the Comfort Inn is $200 or more. The location is close to the park and right on Chocolate Avenue... More

The two of us have been there two years in a row, June 2010 & 2011, and will be going again, this July. Mom and son, Whitney, run a wonderful motel in downtown Hershey. You can walk to downtown to many restaurants. You can even park downtown and catch a jitney to Hershey Park and avoid the parking lot fees.... More

Skip the big-box cookie cutter hotels and stay at the Simmons. I stayed here as a kid and went back 20 years later to reminisce. The place is clean, inexpensive, and within walking distance to Hershey Park so you don't have to pay for parking. There is Rite-Aid right next door, and a charming cheese shop a block down. The...

I was in Hershey, Pa for medical treatment. The Simmons Motel was a small, nice 'mom and pop' kind of motel. The check-in and check-out was very easy and the staff was very helpful. They gave me a Hershey Medical discount too. Rooms are a bit small but very nice for a short stay. I will definately go back.

I recently stayed at this motel based on a recommendation from a client. I was having surgery at the medical center and they offered a discount for people going to the hospital,which was a plus. upon checking in we were taken to an old fashioned motel room that looked like it was from the 50s.
