1st, I cannot say enough great things about the staff during our stay. They were just wonderfully helpful and friendly. The place was really well kept and looks so nice, I couldn't believe I was in a Best Western (not meant to be offensive.) The pool was warm and well kept. Great back way to get to Hershey Park from... More

I can't imagine how this hotel was rated the number 2 place to stay in Harrisburg on trip advisor. I am not a fan of best western hotels, but booked this hotel for a last minute business trip because it received a high trip advisor rating and was considered a "premier" best western. I was pleasantly surprised to see the... More

Great service and lobby looked very nice. Hallway and rooms were similar to budget hotel/ motel. My room had a large stain on the rug, closet door was falling off, and overall decor was worn and tired looking. Room smelled musty, so I am wondering if rooms allowed smoking in the past.

After delayed flights changed our plans we booked this hotel fairly last minute based on a high trip advisor rating. Although we were satisfied over all with our stay I don't believe it deserved so high an overall rating. We arrived around ten o clock at night and found the spacious parking lot fairly full. This hotel has a nice... More

We booked this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Going to a concert at Hershey Stadium and didn't want a 2 hour ride back to Philly late at night. All the hotels right in Hershey were either completely booked or too expensive. The Best Western Premier was only 15 - 20 minutes away and a great price. Got in... More

This hotel was very nice. The rooms were clean, and spacious. Our room had two queen beds, a desk, a side chair, a huge TV and a microwave and mini fridge.

We wanted to be near Hershey but most hotels were outrageously priced. BEST WESTERN PREMIER The Central Hotel & Conference Center was just 8 miles away, a bit of a drive but well worth it. We liked the close proximity of Panera to the hotel when we were rushing to Hershey Park in the morning . The price was excellent... More

Beds were comfy, staff was helpful, pool was great, room was clean and spacious. Common areas clean and had a lot going on for families but if I hadn't come with my family I would have been just as satisfied. Restaurant was delish and prices reasonable. We will def be back when we visit Hershey Park again!!!
