From the outside, this hotel is nothing to look at, and one in which I'd probably pass by; however, the rooms are spacious, contemporary, and very clean. The latter, to me, is most important. The room was nice and warm when we entered, which was very welcome, as the air outside was very cold. Additionally, the thermostat adjusts quickly. The rooms come equipped with a good working refrigerator, a microwave, and a blowdryer (I didn't use the latter 2.). Although the office is very small, the owner, or man behind the counter, was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the visitor information regarding the local attractions. I suggest that you take the brochure from the wall marked "map;" it noted all the local attractions. And everything in Hershey is relatively close to the motel. Furthermore, a gas station and convenience store are right next to the motel, in case you forget to bring, or need anything.
The downsides that I found: the beds were very, very firm, the towels were very rough and non-absorbent, the shower pressure was poor, although the tub spout pressure was fabulous, and the noise from the passing vehicles was audible from the room; the latter would be true in all the rooms, I would imagine. Additionally, the rate is higher on a Saturday than on a Sunday; I wondered why, since the place was empty and it's not like the room is any fancier or there are additional perks on a Saturday night.
