Because of the reasonable rastes we had more money to spend on our vacation. We are looking forward to going back soon. We stayed in room 118 and it is... More

Stayed here with my family because it was close to Hershey Park...payed 118 bucks...I feel completely ripped off. The first room we were in was the size of a large closet..the TV did not work so we asked the front desk to repair. We went out for three hours, came back and two people were sitting on the beds attempting... More

Even before I booked this hotel- there was a problem.I called the hotel directly and asked the woman at the front desk if there were rooms available for a certain weekend. Without hesitation she screamed at me... More

This Motel is in dire need of repair and remodeling. The double room we stayed in was dark and musty smelling. There was a lingering cigarette odor even though it is non-smoking room. The ceilings in main room and bath area were painted over with some sort of “stucco” type material(probably to cover water damage)and this material/paint covered the “heat... More

Just your run of the mill average motel. The room was your typical motel room; bed, table and chairs, tv, fridge, and bathroom. The carpeting in the room looked like it had seen better days but was pleasently suprised on how clean the bathroom and shower were. The newest thing in the room was the flat panel tv mounted to...

My boyfriend and I reserved a room (king bedroom) through Priceline for the Dutch Motel. Upon arriving to check in, the woman in the office (who barely spoke English) couldn't find our reservation. My first name is Lauren and she had a reservation for another person named Lauren (with a different last name) from Expedia. She kept trying to convince... More

She actually provided me a ride during the day of my interview to the school of medicine and then later on provided me a ride back to the airport. the rooms were alright... More

Stay away!!! Dirty rooms, threadbare towels and sheets, rude and dishonest office staff/owners. I booked online while on the road to Hershey for an overnight trip. Unfortunately, I didn't find the reviews of this place until I had already prepaid my reservation. The hotel is a decent distance from the attractions, but I think the neighborhood could be rather scary... More

This motel had a few things going for it: 1. The price - $49 with breakfast, per night 2. No bed bugs I could find 3. Free parking It had a lot against it, though. The room I stayed in was explicitly marked "Non-Smoking", but it REEKED of smoke, and my clothes smelled of smoke when I came home. The... More
