Simmons Motel and Suites built in 1957. Each property was purchased separately and modified into the motel. The motel has been owned and operated by the same family since 1957, we are a warm and friendly motel. While on your travels away from home and you do not need luxury then we are for you. When you come to Simmons it is like being home away from home.

We visited during the week. This is an older motel with lots of different lodging options from rooms to apartments that can fit your family. I think one goes up to 8 people and several for up to 6 plus the various rooms with for 2 or 4. Convenient to downtown. We walked a couple blocks to the middle of town. In theory you could even walk to ZooAmerica but parking is free so why do it. So understand this is not fine lodging. You are not staying at the Ritz or the Holiday Inn. But you are not paying those prices either. Our room was basic and very clean. TV, good AC, mini fridge, microwave, good beds. All we needed. Sure you don't get toiletries besides soap, but I always have spares from other places I stay. No biggee. The people who check you in and out are friendly and responsive. They seem to care about their guests. This is a family motel. The pool was nice and we enjoyed it quite a bit. Put the floaties on the kids and have a great time. Parking is fine as long as you remember that if you leave your spot when it is starting to fill up, you may not have it when you get back later and will have to park on the street in front of the motel. The staff gave us the heads up and we were fine. Not sure how parking is on weekends, but I know traffic gets very bad on a Saturday in Hershey. We will definitely look to stay there on our next visit to Hershey.

Super quaint property that is definitely historic in nature. The grounds are really clean, and though the rooms are old and need upgrades, the vibe was really comfortable. If you’re used to chain hotels with newer fixtures and such this is not the place for you. If you like affordable, friendly and easy accommodations with an old school vibe you’ll love it here!

It felt like I was camping since it was 90 degrees out and the AC wasn’t cut on in the room until we got there at 7pm. The room never cooled off. The motel also doesn’t give shampoo which I though was odd since they have a pool. They only give bars of soap so I went out and got some shampoo since we had been swimming.

We are sorry your stay did not meet your expectations. As a matter of information, we do not turn the air on when the nightly temperature goes down to 50 degrees. We also don't give our shampoo because if we did we would have to pass that cost down to our guests.

We planned a day at Hershey Park and chose this place for the night before becausevof the proximity, low price and motor-era quaintness. It's definitely quaint and has an old-time charm. But the room was microscopic with poor HVAC and little space for luggage. The mattress was worn and saggy. The tiled bathroom was also quaint, but underlit and the shower had no sleves or nooks for soap and shampoo, so it had to sit on the floor. The room also was far from noise proof, so we heard everyone around us, including the staff talking loudly down the hall in the office. To be fair, the office staff members were pleasant and courteous and graciously didn't mind us running late checking out. There are fewer parking spots than rooms so I had to park down the street and walk back in the rain after unloading the car.

This place is awesome! It might be a bit older, but it is very well maintained, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. We booked here 2 weeks in a row because we were going to Hershey medical and it was great each time! It is literally 5 minutes away from everything Hershey.. I liked the previous review that said it's like staying at Grandma's house, he hit it perfectly right. You won't be disappointed.

From reviews I knew what to expect, a 1050’s hotel. That’s what it is, but it is clean well kept and on the Main Street in Hershey, about 1/2 mile from the park. If you went to grandmas in the 1970 or 80 this was her house, I loved it! There was Evan the above ground pool! There is a charcoal grill in the grass area you can bring charcoal and grill if you wish.It is not marble and gold but it is a great place for a non pretentious family to stay.

Very enjoyable. A home away from home. The beds were comfortable and clean, TV's in each room, and there was a mini fridge and microwave. Very relaxed setting, close to everything. Outdoor pool was very well maintained. Ample picnic and outdoor seating. Staff was very friendly.

We stayed at the Simmons motel for Memorial day weekend and enjoyed our stay. My kids and I loved how we were walking distance to Duck Donuts. Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean. It was cold and rainy so we did not get to enjoy the pool. They had a nice set up to grill and relax outside.

We have stayed at Simmons 4 times in the past 2 years and continue to go back again and again. Is it fancy? No, Is it clean? Yes! It is family owned and operated and it is like staying with family. We have actually stayed in the same room all 4 times and it has been clean and comfortable. We try to give business to family owned businesses instead of the big hotel chains and we found a gem here. This is very affordable, almost like stealing a good nights sleep from this family. The location is perfect to walk to restaurants and very close to Hershey attractions. What can I say, we like this mom and pop hotel. IF you have a board stuck in the wrong place...just keep driving, you won't get it anyway. We will be back! Thanks for saving my favorite pillow for me till I picked it up!

It's a short walk to shopping and dining. The bed was comfortable. The room was not very soundproof, I could hear conversations from other rooms. I would probably choose a different hotel the next time I am in Hershey.
