The Hotel staff was very accommodating. The room itself was clean but the bathroom tub drained slowly. My family and I had a great time hanging by the pool and the drive to Hershey park was about 20mins away. Overall it was a good experience and I would entertain staying here again.

The rooms were a good size and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the hotel itself was quiet. We asked for rooms away from the pool, elevator and ice machines and we were very pleased. There are washers and dryers next to the pool for travelers. The pool is inside the hotel and looked good. The Irish Pub restaurant... More

This was our first stay at a premier property. The hotel was beautiful, rooms were beautiful. Many restaurants in the area. Beware though, the premier property does not offer free breakfast. This particular hotel charged $9.99 each for adults and $4.95 for children under 12 for a buffet. Could be pricey if you are traveling with a large group. I... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Hershey attractions. This hotel is within 15 minutes of Hershey's Chocolate World and Hersheypark. Reception is very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are clean and equipped with a fridge, coffee and water are available in the lobby. We were rarely in the hotel but I believe I saw board games that... More

This is a great place to stay if your planning on spending your day at Hershey or even Lancaster. We definitely appreciated the complimentary 24/7 coffee! The elevators are fairly run down but that didn't impact our experience. Thanks for a good experience!
