“Great off site Hershey Park Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We were there for 4 nights during the 4th of July holiday. It is a straight road down from the hotel to Hershey Park. It takes less than 10 min to drive there. About 3 miles down, there is a strip mall. You can get Subways or Chinese food. Giant supermarket is just right there. It is so convenient. This hotel is right off the highway, it is very easy to find. We got a two queen beds room. It is a good size room. It has a fridge and a microwave in the room. The wifi connectivity is poor in the room but great in the lobby. We stayed in 317. It is about 5-6 rooms away from the elevator. We could still hear "ding" so it must be horrible for people stay near it. Also it is faster to take the stair to get breakfast than taking an elevator up and down... Breakfast is pretty good but it is the same thing everyday. The lobby has a very strong smell of chlorine coming out from the pool. Due to this reason, we did not use it. Overall, it was still a great stay. We will stay there again.

Newly remodeled, rooms clean and updated. Breakfast was a bit of a wait but it was crazy busy so expectation was consistent. Personnel were friendly and helpful.

Only thing that I'm sure they knew about was the wAter damage in our bathroom from the bathroom above ours.

Location is wicked perfect for Hershey activities. Close to freeway and shopping at the outlet stores.

This is by far one of the most modern La Quinta properties I've stayed at. Bright, clean and cheerful.

We stayed two nights at La Quinta Inn during a recent trip to Hershey Park. The hotel is just minutes away from Hershey Park, making it a great location. Tip: On the drive to Hershey Park from the hotel you will see a Giant Supermarket on the right before you get to the park, you can purchase discounted Hershey Park tickets at this Giant (which included a parking pass), this quick stop can save a lot of money in terms of park admission and parking. Our room was clean and everything worked, although my wife felt that there was an odor to the room, which may have been from someone smoking in the room, although the room was non-smoking. The elevator in the hotel is small and slow, it can be very difficult to navigate a luggage cart in and out of the elevator, especially if you arrive or depart when everyone is leaving or returning from the park. One minor nit was that our room was very dark in terms of how it was decorated, not a big deal but it was just a bit odd to us. The room was quiet. We were a bit disappointed in the breakfast, it was very crowded (not really hotels fault) but offered a very limited selection, mostly pastries, cereal, fruit, juice and waffles. On our last day we skipped the breakfast crowd and went to a nearby Dunkin Donuts instead. The restaurant in the hotels parking lot (The Hershey Family Restaurant) was awesome and very reasonably priced. Although there really weren’t any significant negatives about La Quinta, we probably would look for another hotel the next time we are in Hershey.

We went here in summer of 2012 and it was just redone. It was clean and close to everything. We stopped at places in Amish Country and did Turkey Hill Experience on the way there .Hershey Park that night and next day. Good self serve breakfast buffet... make your own waffles, cereal, bagels. Room/bathrooms/ hallways all were clean.
Lobby nicely decorated. They had a pool - I didnt use it- looked nice. They dont have a shuttle to the park but is down the road.

Room Tip: We had a room that faced the parking lot- no biggie. It was a place to sleep.

We chose this hotel because it was close to Hershey, was reasonable, and included breakfast. Unfortunately our room was not clean (hair on bathroom floor, mold on shower curtain), the laundry facility hadn't passed inspection so it was closed, pool was broken, room phone was broken, etc. The front staff cod care less about the problems. The wifi was excellent, though! Overall very disappointed.
