My husband, daughter, and I spent the night at the White Rose on August 19. We were greeted warmly by a very nice woman at the reception desk. She kindly recommended a delicious restaurant (Funke's) and provided us with maps.
We had a second floor room that was very clean. If found the bed to be very comfortable, and the bathroom was nicely appointed. While it was small, a high window let in so much light that it made it very cheery. I kept thinking that we left the bathroom light on, but it was just the sunshine! The shower was energetic, and the towels were plentiful.
The room was equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, and a 4 cup coffee maker. I don't usually like to use the coffee makers in hotels, but this one seemed very clean. Regardless, the staff put out coffee and tea in the morning so there was no need to brew my own.
The heated pool was a sparkling blue and well-maintained. There were towels at poolside so there was no need to bring them from the room. This motel is located on Chocolate Avenue, so it is a busy street. However, that makes it close to everything. I really did not notice the street noise as my room was at the far end from the street.
This motel is a pleasant, updated tribute to the road trips of my childhood. I very much enjoyed the clean, quiet accommodations and the tiny touches that were homey (stenciled roses in the interior hallway, rose railings, wooden benches outside of the rooms). It seemed very much a family place. I felt very safe there and would definitely stay there on my next trip to Hershey.
Thank you to the Grimms for providing an affordable, lovely gem...ahem...rose in the garden of our travels. Kudos!
