“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

A group of us, we got (9) rooms from Maryland went to stay one night for a tournament. Pillows were flat, felt unsafe. The rooms had a microwave and refrigerator, they should have saved their money and undated this very old place. The reviews seemed to good to be true for the so called cost. What a mistake. Careful what you chose for the cost.

Room Tip: Don't stay there.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Stayed here while visiting family in the area. We stayed in the newer section of the hotel. The rooms were basic rooms that are dated but clean. The mattress was comfortable. They allow dogs for an additional $5 a night which is extremely reasonable compared to the other hotels in the the area. I had forgotten my hairdryer and the office let me borrow one for the stay. This is my second stay here but the first time I have left a review. There is a Burger King right next door and a Turkey Hill market right across the street. 5 minutes from Mt. Joy or Elizabethtown if you need more than that. The staff was very nice and were available at any time I needed them. When I made my reservation I requested the same room I had stayed in and they were able to accomodate it. If you stay on the side where the burger king is, it is pretty bright but I prefer it that way but you could not see the light in the room. Would definately stay here again. If you are not looking for all of the bells and whistles, stay here.

Room Tip: Newer section is less dated.

Is there anything below basic room? Can you say "Dump"? Refrigerator in room, and a coffee pot as well; but you have to supply your own coffee. Also supply your own facial tissues. God forbid you have to sneeze. The room does come with a fly swatter! Norman Bates would be happy here. Not cheap, either. Pizza place across the street, but other eateries are not close.

Room Tip: Go some place else. There are no good rooms!

Although the hotel is not a Hilton, the price and location is right. We've stayed several times and have had consistent service. The office is open 24 hours a day which is nice if you travel late. There are lots of amenities near the hotel and Hershey Park is only 20 minutes away.

The room was dingy to say the least, if I had any sense I would have left after opening the door of the room and taking the $60.00 loss for the night. The soap provided was smaller than a domino piece and I noticed centipedes scurrying across the bathroom floor when exposed to the light. The shower was smaller than a phone booth and the chair in the room was a rickety and dirty and should have been thrown out years ago.
The bottom line is that you get what you pay for and for as much as I travel I should have known better than to expect anything worthwhile for the price. I would have been better off sleeping on the ground at the 'Return to Mananas' site.
STAY Away from this place
