First and foremost, I am not a picky guest. I do not go on vacations and trips to sit in a room and snap photos of a crack in the bathroom tile. That's not my idea of fun. In my opinion, a room is generally a place meant to function as a livable space during your trip, unless you are planning some big romantic get away in which case...anyone with common sense would chose a more romantic upscale hotel to do so. So therefore, there are only a few things I feel are necessary to be happy with accommodations and they are 1. A comfortable/clean bed. 2. Working facilities and air, 3. No rodents, bugs, or health code violations/unsanitary conditions. Quality Inn in New Cumberland met all of that criteria for us and was reasonable priced for the accommodations we had. Room and linens were clean. King Bed was big, soft and comfy...in fact I did not even feel my friend move during the night. Bathroom was on the small side but functional for its purposes. Shower was easy to adjust temp and good water pressure so I was able to enjoy a nice relaxing shower after a long day at Hersheypark. Flat screen TV, desk area and plenty of dresser drawers and vanity counter. The continental breakfast was a good selection which is hard to come by these days and very nice when you are already spending an arm and a leg at Hersheypark and stadium for food and drinks. Did not have time for the pool so I cannot comment. Staff was kind and accommodating when we realized we forgot toothpaste. Check in and check out was fast and friendly. Housekeeping came each day and were nice and asked us if we needed anything else.
If I had to say anything negative about our stay it would only be that the drive to Hersheypark is longer than its advertised to be. The official website claims that its only 15 minutes away but it usually took us more like 25-30. And during Friday night traffic it was terrible and we were late for the concert we attended. I realize the hotel cannot control traffic conditions in a larger city, however it may be very misleading to anyone who is not from the area and is not taking Hershey traffic into account. We live in the area and we did not even think to calculate that in. We just saw it said 15 minutes and felt that was reasonable. So I would personally find it more beneficial to them to word things differently on their site so as not to give a specific time duration if its not very accurate. Other than that, I can honestly say I would consider staying here again the next time we have plans in the Hershey area. Again, we felt we received reasonable accommodations for a reasonable price.
