I booked this hotel after researching hotel prices in the area and reading previous reviews on Tripadvisor that it had been recently rennovated and was a nice, clean place to stay which was close to Hershey Park. We were very pleased with our stay at this Holiday Inn Express. Our room was very clean upon arrival and the air conditioner in the room worked well. It was also relatively quiet which was a pleasant surprise. I will say that the bed was way too firm for me. However the room did offer a choice of soft and firm pillows which did help. We did not have any trouble with hallway noise - I usually always ask for a room on a high floor and away from the elevator.
The free breakfast had both hot and cold items which included some form of eggs, biscuits and gravy, either bacon or sausage, cereal, yogurt, bread items, and hot cinnamon buns. The hotel also had a "make your own" pancake machine, but it was out of service (they were out of refills) 3 out of the 4 mornings we had breakfast. (To be fair, we went down to breakfast on the late side, so it may have been full earlier in the morning). Most of the other items were refilled frequently - and were truly refilled until the end of the breakfast time (6:30 to 9:30am). For the most part, we found the staff friendly, but the staff members we asked were not extremely knowledgeable about the area. They did have print-outs available at the front desk of area restaurants and attractions that did prove to be helpful. It is an easy commute to Hershey Park and there is a Dunkin Donuts Express and Perkins Pancake House (24 hour) almost directly across the street if you want decent food and are not in the mood to explore the area. This hotel was a great value for what we paid, considering other hotels slightly closer to Hershey were at least $50 to $100 more per night than what we paid. We would choose this location again if we ever come back to the Hershey/Lancaster area.
