“Great Experience”
Reviewed October 30, 2008

This past September two-night stay was my second time at the hotel. Our organization rented a number of rooms as part of an event and we were very pleased. The rooms are very spacious, the staff courteous and the breakfast more than ample. We plan to use the hotel next year.

  • Liked — Overall friendliness.

We were just in PA last week and stayed at this lovely hotel. It far exceeded our expectations. The room was very comfortable, as were the bed and pillows The complimentary breakfast bar was also great! The only negative thing I can say about our visit was that the cleaning crew could have made an effort to have been a little quieter, but other than that, it was great. The front desk staff were very cordial and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — The comfort!
  • Disliked — noisy cleaning crew

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for one night on September 19 on the way from Lancaster PA (1/2 hr away) to Hershey Park (approx 20 min) . It’s right off a major highway but we were on the parking lot side and didn’t hear any road noise. Very pretty landscaping around the building. Delicious cinnamon rolls at the breakfast bar along with yogurt, cereal, donuts and eggs. The room was very clean, the bed super comfy and the towels surprisingly plush. The only negative to this room was that the sink (along with amenities and hair dryer) were IN the room itself. I’ve stayed at hotels where there was a sink outside of the toilet & shower area but it was always separated from the sleeping area by a wall. It just seemed like a strange set-up and is the only thing keeping me from giving this property a 5 rating.

We are 4 college room-mates that pick a location for a reunion each year and decided on Hershey this year. We needed a place central, clean, with a refrig for our wine and adjoining rooms. The staff was very accomodating and we had first floor rooms. The fruit at the complimentary breakfast bar was gone and not refilled when we got to breakfast. The rooms were a bit small. Other than that, the place totally satisfied our needs. The pillows were GREAT, the mattresses extremely comfortable. I would recommend this hotel.

Very nice - I have never stayed in an "Express" so I did not know what to expect. The room was nice, clean and comfortable for our family of 4. Pillows were comfy and we all slept well. We enjoyed the breakfast that came with the room. IThe location was about 15 minutes from Hershey and 20 minutes from Lancaster. It was a good little hotel for the $ and located right between the attractions we were there for.

After looking thru many reviews I decided on this hotel. I booked 2 rooms since I was traveling with my parents. It was easy to find , right off the highway and the lobby and entrance were very pleasant. The room was a standard size and was clean and did not look overused. The Queen beds were very comfortable as well as the pillows which they give you plenty of. The breakfast included was very good and ran till 1030 am on the weekend which was good for those who want to sleep in. There was hot food (waffles and eggs) as well as fresh muffins and it was all replenished. We had connecting rooms which was convenient and overall I was pleased with this choice. We came to go to Hershey and it was about 15-20 minutes away. It was exactly what I was looking for .. clean, quiet and close to the main attractions. I would definitely recommend it.

they also offered a corporate discount although it was a personal trip.

  • Liked — clean and well kept
  • Disliked — no pool but they do have privileges at a local pool which Ididnt get to try
