MainStay Suites Grantville - Hershey North
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Grantville
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights while going to Hershey Park. Arrived at noon and was able to check into a room. Front desk person allowed me to use the computer to print out park tickets. Free breakfast was handy (cereal, yogurt, bagels, toast, mini muffins, juice, coffee). Beds and pillows were OK. Couch had a pullout which helped since we are a family of 5.

Didn't use the pool. Fitness center has one treadmill, one bike, one stair machine. Elevator needs new carpeting. Room seemed to be clean. You are on your own to make the beds each day. Maid will only empty trash and bring new towels.

If you have young kids, this is a bit better than average hotel to stay at, especially with the kitchenettes.

We really enjoyed this hotel! When we arrived our room wasn't ready, but we were given a default key to open the doors to the pool and game area! Kids swam, played basketball and mini golf! Can't ask for much more! They came and found us when our room was ready and we checked in immediately! Room was nice for 2 adults and 3 big kids!! We used the refrigerator, as we had packed sandwiches and snacks! We were on the 3rd floor and were not disturbed by any noise that other posters had mentioned. Breakfast in the morning was fine with sausage, bagels, cereal etc. and plenty to drink. In fact the nice manager, who greeted us when we arrived, told us the cold milk and hot chocolate machines were on 24 hours!! Speaking of the manager, he was very "down to earth", friendly and approachable. Offered his assistance and informed us as to the location of ammenities inside and outside the hotel! We have been going to Hershey every year for 4 years and stayed at a different hotel every time. Next year, we will be returning to this hotel!!

Very family friendly hotel with lots to do right at the hotel: pool with slide, miniature golf and basketball. We had a two room suite which gave us nice separation. I felt like the location was great and close enough to Hershey attractions.

Complaint: too noisy.

Room Tip: I liked the two room suite but you have to ask for that.

Checked out this hotel many times on Tripadvisor and noticed that most of the negative reviews were about the pool so we decided to give it a try. It was a little cheaper than hotel right next door and most of the reviews were positive.

Checked in around 7:00pm. little slow upon check in as there was only 1 person on duty and the person in front of us was asking so many questions. Finally got to room.

Room was fairly spacious. We reserved the 1 bedroom suite and the bed was in a separate room, which is usually nice. This one had a door to a balcony right next to the bed and it was a little chilly due to the door.

Room was a little outdated but fairly clean. Bathroom was the same but have been in other local hotels that were much worse.
Noticed all of these rules on the table. Warnings about noise levels and only allowed 1 infraction per visit or else.... Also, breakfast was served from 7:00am - 9:00am, daily??
Excuse me, no later hours on the weekends? You were also not allowed to take food, from the breakfast area up to your room. HMMM. I typically get up before my Wife and bring her some coffee and maybe a yogurt or a muffin but not here? While I understand your reasons for this, I do not agree with them. Because of a few bad apples, you are preventing other guests from partaking in the breakfast. As to how it was, I don't know. Got up at 9:20am and breakfast, as stated was cleared out.

As for the warnings about the noise??? There was so much noise, from people (kids) running up and down the halls on our floor and from floors and rooms above, that I was able to use that as my alarm clock. We were out late the night before (2:00am) and figured we had until noon to check out so why not sleep in?? Because of all of the noise, that's why...

May just pay the extra few bucks next time for the hotel up the street but still not sure.

Room Tip: Stay on the roof so nobody is above you running around and waking you up.

I booked this hotel because it was close to Hollywood Casino & it was (2 miles away, but other than that, very ordinary. Room was nice, with microwave/fridge but had a funny smell. The toilet "howled" when flushed which was ok except at night. However, except for the casino, there is absolutely nothing to do in the area except go back into Hershey & we weren't interested. Unless you go several miles back out on the highway, there was only two places to eat, both Italian (ok, but not for several meals). No fast food etc at all. Just breakfast at the hotel (average, but served the purpose - free). Staff was friendly - saw the manager when we were leaving & he asked how much we paid online. When I told him, he remarked that he could have given us a better deal. Kind of made me feel crappy. There was a children's area & pool but obviously for little kids.

Room Tip: If you want to use the kitchen, bring your own pots/pans

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on your stay at the MainStay Suites Grantville/Hershey. While be located so close to Hershey/the park & attractions, many of our guests do stay here for that specific reason. In addition, the nearby casino also brings us some travelers who are looking for a close place to spend the night. If you do venture back to this area we hope to meet your lodging needs again. Again thanks for the comment.

I recently stayed at the MainStay Suites after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and searching area hotel options.

This is a great option over some of the more pricey locations in an around Hershey and Hershey Park. This is not the Fairmont, but it is also a well balanced option, particularly if you are traveling with kids or for a short stay.

The room was large, clean and sufficient. The facility has a nice indoor pool and offers continental breakfast. Staff members were helpful and friendly.

The neighboring Italian Restaurant off of Kelley Court was also a good find and was far better than expected.

Less than a 10 minute drive to Hershey Park.

We were quite happy with our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable. We loved the indoor pool and indoor mini golf. The free breakfast was so-so but served our needs well. The only complaint I had was that they charged us an additional $20 per night for our little dog who weighs about 4 pounds. Overall we were quite happy.
