“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I took my family for a short two nights trip to Hershey and stayed in Hershey Lodge. The room was clean and comfortable. The food was ok and kids enjoyed the indoor pool very much. The front desk staff made us feel very special. They were very helpful and polite. Highly recommend the place for families.

Room Tip: Section "F" in the main tower is a short walk to the indoor pool.

We had a great time at the Hershey Lodge New Year's Party! There was so much for the kids and adults to do, and we could party without worrying about driving home. They had activities for the kids and adults during the day, which lead up to the big party that night. The staff was helpful and friendly, and the lodge was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We especially loved the stone fireplace in the middle of the lobby. Rooms at the lodge were clean and nice, but could use a little updating. Overall a wonderful experience, and would go back.

Our family of 11 (6 adults & 5 kids) visited Hershey for New Years 2012/12. What a fantastic family experience! All of the Hershey attractions are wonderful and the Hershey Lodge puts on an incredible family New Years Eve celebration. All of us (ages 5 to 67) loved it!!!

Room Tip: The rooms all have 1 king or 2 queen beds and the rooms are kind of small. They do not have cots av...

The Lodge is old school, but remains a great place to stay if it fits your budget. Rooms with iHomes, HDMI connections, RCA jacks and loads of wall outlets are great! Bear's Den pub is a great hotel bar experience for all ages.

We spent 2 nights in the Lodge for a hockey tournament and we had a great time. Rooms were clean, The Bear's Den restaurant was great and the overall accommodation was excellent. The hotel was filled with hundreds of young hockey players but the hotel did a great job handling that except a long check-in line. We had a hard time getting our large group seated together in the restaurant but they did get us seated quickly and our food came in a timely manner and was good. Overall I liked the hotel and would stay here again.

We spent 2 nights at the Hershey Lodge and we had a wonderful time. The front desk employees were very helpful with our last minute arrangements. My kids enjoyed the warm indoor pool and the other kids activities. The room was clean. The food inside the hotel was average, lots of good eating alternatives in the area nearby. We want to visit again during the summer.

This is a nice place. We have been here many times. The place is huge. Very spread out. You will do a lot of walking. Beautiful lobby area. Very comfortable to hang out in. Gigantic 4 sided fireplace in lobby. Plenty of seating. Characters come walk around the lobby at scheduled times. The kids will love this. You get Hershey bars at check in. There are 5 places to eat in this hotel plus room service. This makes for plenty of options. Our food always tasted delicious. The service was spotty. Sometimes fantastic, sometimes not. Plenty of activities scheduled through the recreation area to keep the family busy. Bingo, scavenger hunts, crafts..... All keep the kids excited and happy. All have prizes of chocolate. It's hard to leave here without a suitcase full of chocolate! Kisses left by housekeeping in the room. Room was very clean. Swimming area large although it is starting to show its age. Could use a floor resurfacing and sprucing up. Lifeguards were friendly. Game room next to the swimming pool. Fun trip all around. We will be back.
