We stayed here Sunday-Tuesday while we were visiting Hershey park. Overall, a clean, friendly area with lots nearby. Rooms are basic and seem newly renovated. The free continental breakfast was a great bonus and had decent choices (pancakes, waffles, eggs, turkey sausage, bacon, cereal, choboni yogurt and a few other things). The pool was small. However it was clean, convenient and refreshing. Fitness center has two ellipticals, a treadmill and a bike. Overall, everything was good. My two complaints would be 1) every time we entered our room we noticed a musty-damp smell. When we cranked up the AC, the smell subsided a bit but it was still very uninviting. If the hotel wasn't so clean, the musty smell would have been a deal breaker for me. 2) it's not around the corner from Hershey park. Took us about 20 minutes to get there. Directions were fairly simple so it wasn't terrible.... Just not as close as I thought if was going to be. All in all I would give this hotel an A. How could you go wrong with $130 a night, clean rooms and free breakfast?
