Let me first say that I travel virtually every week on business and stay in very nice hotels with amenities. This hotel is definately not that. I was there this past weekend with a bunch of friends for the weekend. Our group comes out here in March and June every year and most of us either stay at the Holiday Inn (expensive for a run-down hotel) or our preferred hotel, the Comfort Suites next door to the Holiday Inn. The Comfort Suites was sold out, but is typically expensive (~$150) when we come in June.
The location is really good. It is just off the interstate and the main road (743) going south takes you right to Hershey Park, Chocolate World, outlets, stadium, etc. Maybe a 10-15 minute drive through the country. Going north on 743 for a couple minutes you find the casino and Penn National Horse Race Track.
The staff is great and were very helpful when I needed a last minute change. Our rooms were ready when we arrived, were fairly clean, had a slight musty odor, and some flies. The musty odor was likely from the purple (actually black but behind vinyl wallpaper looks purple) mold behind the wallpaper in the sink area and some water damaged and soft sheetrock all around the top of the shower. In the morning, I found out that the flies come in through a gap at the door where the sunlight came through. I got rid of the flies and pushed a washcloth in the gap. It looks like they used an entire tube of caulk around the shower. The carpet looked fairly new and the linens were what I expected, thin and somewhat starchy. The bed was comfortable. The flat screen TV was nice and had many channels. As for amenities, there really were none other than a small continental breakfast, some brouchures, and a few soda machines. There is no pool, restaurant, or bar, but there is plenty of parking for trucks and/or motorhomes. There is no elevator and all rooms are accessed from the outside.
All in all, our stay was acceptable for us guys. It is a bargain-basement hotel and needs to be judged that way. It is fine for a quick stay. Would I stay here again? Probably.
