“Clean hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Very clean hotel with great service.Great location to Hershey Park without the pricey hotels close to the park.About a fifteen minute ride to the park.But for this price point,other hotel chains provide a free buffet breakfast.Major disappointment.It's my understanding is that the Courtyard brand is going from an included breakfast to a "bistro" style offering seemingly run by Starbucks for a charge.Menu is small with very few choices.Still having problems with WI-fi in the rooms,however they will give you a portable hotspot at no charge .I would have given them a five star rating if not for the lack of an included buffet breakfast.What they could do, is either transition back to the usual Marriott buffet breakfast,or absorb the costs of the "bistro" breakfast at no charge to the customer.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel,as the back rooms all you see are open fields.No views.

Although this Courtyard has an updated lobby, the rooms could use a refresh and new pillows. The air conditioning in our room did not cool very well and was noisy. I booked using a Marriott Rewards certificate, so it was a free room, but I wouldn't have been happy paying full price. If you're getting a reasonable rate, then it's probably a good option for the area. At $189 for a King room with sofa bed (Thursday night stay) it is overpriced. Liked that it was close to Target & Gold's Gym and conveniently located just off I-283.

We stayed here for one night after our Hershey Park day. The hotel is about 12 minutes from the Park and was a good choice as an alternate to the expensive Hershey hotels. Because we booked with points, we got a room that was not the best. I had requested two queens because it was my husband and my 9 year old. We were given a small, awkward king with a pull out (which worked fine) but not as comfortable as we would have liked. We were told they were sold out and couldn't move us (but I was led to believe that we got this room because we booked on points).
Anyway, the hotel was fine. Easy access to the highway, brand new lobby, with a small restaurant, which was ok priced. We ate a small breakfast there. This is a Courtyard, so no free breakfast, although the Wifi was free and worked well.
The area around the hotel is not fancy, older motels etc, and this looked to be the nicest hotel around.
Rooms were fairly clean as was the bathroom. The bed was very soft and not the typical Marriott bed. That was not good.
All in all, I would stay here again and as always, trust the Marriott brand.

Of the Courtyards I've stayed in, this is one of the best. This Courtyard has the updated lobby amenities, including the small private seating coves where a traveler can watch television or work on a laptop. There is a also small dining area that offers a variety of food and beverages through most of the day.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay; a few of the pros and cons of my experience are these:

PROS
- the new lobby amenities, especially small TV viewing coves;
- well organized room;
- comfortable bed;
- very clean and well maintained;
- friendly and helpful staff;

CONS
- the usual high polyester content bedding found in most Marriott properties;
- no full-length mirror in room;
- no breakfast included;

Overall, I enjoyed my stay very much but the lack of a free breakfast did not make this hotel a good value for me. Most hotels of this type, in terms of star level and price point, do include a breakfast in the basic room rate. For those who don't want to purchase food in the hotel, there is a McDonald's and several other restaurants nearby.

The hotel is very easy to access from the highway. Front desk staff and two of the young men that were on maintenance, I believe, were extremely friendly. The morning staff in the Bistro were not nice.

Stayed here last weekend for a lacrosse tournament. Typical Courtyard. Appeared to be recently renovated and clean. Pleasant staff. Would recommend. Convenient to interstate and several restaurants were close by.
