I was planning on visiting Hershey Park and Chocolate World for a few days but wanted an inexpensive getaway as this was a fairly last minute trip. Although I really wanted to stay at the Hershey hotel or lodge, I found it was a bit too expensive for the few days I was going to be there. I found the Wingate by Wyndham on Expedia and the total cost of the room for two nights was even less than it was to stay one night right at Hershey. The hotel is about a 20-25 minute drive from Hershey, but fairly easy to get to. The hotel was very clean and the front desk staff very polite and helpful. The room was huge! We had a king bed room on the second floor. The room had a large TV, desk, refrigerator, chair, and there was still more room. The view from the window wasn’t anything spectacular, just a view of the parking lot, but I have no complaints about that. The only complaint that I have about the room is the toilet. It was very slow to flush, and everytime you flushed, even if it was empty, I felt like it either wasn’t going to flush all the way or it was going to overflow. Thankfully, it never did. The hotel also offered a continental breakfast (cereals, milk, fruit, danishes, bagels, toast, English muffins, juices and coffee, and a waffle maker). There is a very small gym and a small hottub on the first floor. I am not sure if there is a pool or not. I did not see one, but I never really went looking for it either. Overall, I thought this was a very nice stay, great hotel for the price paid, and not too far away from the action of Hershey. I would have no problem staying here again.
