“Great location, average motel, overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We stayed 2 weekend nights in June and paid $340 per night with tax for a basic "suite" which is really a regular room with a large pullout couch and kitchenette and desk area.

Pros: very close to Hersheypark and Chocolate World, clean, recently renovated rooms, fridge and microwave in room, 2 queen beds plus a queen pull out sofabed, free WIFI

Cons: entire first floor smelled like chlorine from indoor pool; cheap, thin towels; teensy shampoo bottles; front desk reluctantly gave me an extra blanket upon request saying, "everything needed is supplied in room;" room a/cs are old, window type so room is either hot or freezing and cold for whomever sleeps next to a/c unit, overpriced for what it was

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some valuable feedback regarding your recent stay. We certainly strive to make all our guests feel welcome & provide them with a quality, comfortable stay. We are pleased to be part of the Marriott family and offer all of their required standard guest room amenties and products. We will however make certain all staff are aware that additional amentities are to be offered to all guests upon request.

Since our indoor pool is located on our first floor and it is maintained to state regulations with chlorine chemical, there are times where the odor may be stronger than others. Especially during peak useage times. We take your comments seriously; and will review your specific concerns with our team.

Again thank you for your honest feedback, we will certainly use this to improve. I hope that you consider visiting us again and allow us to be of service in the future. Wishing you "Sweet" memories of Hershey.

Physical structure is nice, front desk helpful and nice, rooms nice. Perhaps i should have known, but i was hoping for a door between the bedroom and the living room. The room is quite nice, but there is no way to put the kids to bed and stay up in the other space even though there is plenty of space. Breakfast was a fiasco, out of many things, staff unorganized, only fruit in sight a couple of old apples. Quite overwhelmed staff who were understandably tired about people asking why they were out of***.

Housekeeping unfriendly and glaring, loudly complaining about "all the rooms having do not disturb signs" and complaining about guests in front of guests.

Overall not bad, but there are better choices near Hershey Park.

Thank you for your recent comments. Your honest feedback enables us to truly measure if we are meeting our guests expectations. I am sorry to hear that your experience with breakfast was anything less than satisfactory. As this is a very busy time of year for us, we purposely extend our breakfast service times to make sure we can accommodate those that do not rise as early as 6:30 a.m.. We will take your comments to our team to ensure that we are replenishing all breakfast items throughout our service timeframe of 6:30-10:00.

We are very excited about our new renovations and fresh new look! While the SpringHill Suites by Marriott product does not accommodate a closed door suite it does provide a larger room than most other hotel suites and in room amenities including a minifrig/microwave in every room. Marriott does have many different room type products, if you are looking for a closed bedroom door for your family, I would recommend a Residence Inn, TownePlace, or Courtyard by Marriott. These products can offer this type of room arrangement and privacy for your family.

I hope that you consider visiting us again and allow us to be of service in the future. Wishing you "Sweet" memories of Hershey.

Thank you again for your time.

We really enjoyed the hotel. The staff was friendly and professional. The rooms and service were excellent. The housekeeping folks were really nice and did a wonderful job. The hotel is located very near to Hershey Park and Chocolate World. Our grand daughters
had a blast in the pool which helped on the rainy days. Our only suggestion is that the complimentary breakfast left much to be desired compared to other SpringHill Suites we have stayed in. The eggs were from a box or something and there were few choices compared to equivalent hotels. Not much fruit and generally mediocre for a SpringHill Suite.

We were pleasantly surprised by the SpringHill Suites in Hershey. The place is incredibly clean and the room is a great size. We loved the idea of the small kitchen/living room area and then the two beds and bathroom at the back of the room. The beds were comfortable and once in the rooms you barely heard any noise at all. The free breakfast was good and had a lot of selections for everyone. The staff was friendly and pleasant. This hotel is located next to a Hershey auto museum and just a short drive away from Hersheypark and Chocolate World. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice modern clean hotel with free daily breakfast. It's very close to Hershey and across from a great little ice cream parlor called king cone. There wifi signal wasn't great it wasn't always working in our room on the second floor. The room we stayed in had a plush king sized bed and a nice pull out bed for our kids. It has a refrigerator sink and a microwave. It had a desk with a wired Internet connection. The pool is very nice and clean. There is also a whirlpool. The staff was very nice and accommodating.

Great family vacation hotel. Kids loved the pool.
The continental breakfast, which was included in room price was hot oatmeal, cold cereal, yogurt, egg patties and sausages and French toast, muffins, bagels, English muffins, juice, tea, coffee.

The wallpaper in the bathroom was spectacular and I'm trying to find it online but am having no luck. There was a great duvet cover that I tried to buy on Marriott's store but it is no longed available. It was super cute - a waffle style sheet.

Staff was incredibly friendly.

I fully recommend!

Thank you fory our comments! We are very excited about our recent renovations and fresh NEW look!. While I'm not certain that you can secure the same wall vinyl, I do believe the "waffle" top sheet should be available online at Shop Marriott. It is a new product for SpringHill Suites by Marriott.

We hope you have a chance to come back again soon, possibly for HersheyPark in the Dark or Christmas Candylane! Lots of fun...not just in Summer!

Stayed here 2 nights for a trip to the park. Construction seemed to be finished as far as we could tell. Hotel was clean and up to date looking. We had an accessible room on request. It worked well for us but no roll in shower if you need one. Breakfast was essentials only. Serve yourself. Nothing memorable. We didn't use the pool but we looked and it looked nice. But small. Staff was nice but not out of the way friendly like you would hope.
