“DO NOT STAY!!!! I WOULD RATHER SLEEP IN MY CAR!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

no hot water and when I did have hot water the pressure sucked!! looks like they painted over mold instead of cleaning the mold first. Room was cold no heat in bathroom and ALL windows painted shut, very very low class motel which on there site they compare the motel to be like a 5 star hotel for less $$. the lady at desk DOES NOT speek very good english, fridge and microwave smelled bad, carpet needs cleaned, reminds me of a "quick stop" motel if u know what I mean....doors are unevenly gapped so there must be some structure issues..bathroom floor looks like it has not been mopped dirt and what looks like saw dust in corners. bathroom looks new but done very very cheap. when you walk on the floor in the room it bounces I was scared I was going to fall thourgh. went to office door and it was locked but they say they have 24 hr service.....if it would not be for there location I'm sure they would not have ANY business!!! front of motel looks ok but the back shows the true side, plastic on windows and all!!!!! even the soda machine took my $$ and did not work

This place is horrible! The sheets were dirty with hairs all over them. There were stains on the comforters. Got new towels from the office and they were dirty with stains on them. The bathroom shower had hairs in it and looked so dirty that I needed to wear flip flops to go into the shower. There were stains on the carpet and mold in the bathroom. The only thing that wasn't bad about this place was the location. 5 minutes to Hollywood casino and 12 minutes to Hershey Park. Restaurant accross the street has average food if you order from the kitchen but the food from the buffet is horrible and over cooked.
