A couple of weeks ago we stayed at the Red Lion Hotel and had a marvelous time. We enjoyed relaxing in the outside pool and jacuzzi and the hotel restaurant food was great! If you're ever in Harrisburg or Hershey, stop in and enjoy the marvelous hotel and it' s staff, you won't regret it.

The hotel is slowly updating as to not create eye sores for customers (great choice). The staff... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We were visiting Hershey and it was only a simple 15 minute drive. The outdoor pool and playground were great for the kids to play at. We were a little disappointed in the wifi it was hit or miss on the connection.

For the price and location near hershey it was ok for a few days. Could have been cleaner. When we first arrived the bedspread had crumbs on it. We threw it out in the hall and called the front desk about it. We also requested a fridge and it took a full day and a few calls to receive it.... More

The hotel has a large lobby with restaurant and game room off of it. Rooms were ok for the money we spent. Nothing fancy. Bathrooms could definitely use a facelift. The main pool was large, but needs some TLC. New paint job perhaps? The kids enjoyed the playground. Hershey Park was about a 15 minute drive.
