“Nice place”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

I have been visiting Hershey probably monthly and one of the hotels I have been staying at is the Country Inn and Suites. It is a few minutes from Hershey Park, Giant Arena and an array of other attractions.
It is a relatively new hotel, the cost is reasonable, rooms are large enough and comfy. There is a breakfast at no cost in the morning which is a little larger than a continental breakfast. One week end I stayed there it was very busy, the dining area was large enough to accommodate. A lot more breakfast foods were offered that week end. A small but nice indoor pool and hot tub is available for your use.
I would recommend this hotel.

This was our second visit to this Country Inn and Suites. We spent one night at the property during our annual visit to Hershey's Christmas Candylane. The location is very convenient to the park. We stayed with our three children (ages 9, 5 and 3). The hotel is extremely clean and the rooms are spacious. There is a large indoor pool which is open to 11:00 pm and always a hit with the kids. The breakfast room is larger than most hotels and we did not have to wait for a table. There are several highchairs and a section in the breakfast room with child sized tables and chairs. There is also a toybox. The breakfast selection is better than most chains. There were hot and cold items including eggs, sausage, a waffle maker, oatmeal, yogurt, cereal and the usual breakfast muffins and breads. The hotel has a nice layout so it never feels overcrowded. There is also a large front porch with several tables and chairs to spread out. This is definitely our go-to hotel when spending the night at Hershey.

We wanted to stay in the area and the Hotel looked inviting, especially after driving all day. Warm welcome from Shelley. Good room with 2 queen beds and frig and micro, heaven for us weary travellers. Beautiful swimming pool with spa whirlpool which I soon checked out after the free coffee and chocolate cookies. Comfortable sofas in the lounge area with free books to borrow and return to another hotel in the group, nice touch!. Manager Greg very helpful printing out maps and directions for Hershey, Amish at Lancaster County and Gettysburg. Stayed 3 nights. Great breakfasts, good value and central for sight-seeing.

Room Tip: A king bed leaves space in the room for a sofa or coffee table whereas two queen beds fill the room.

From the moment I pulled up at this hotel (after hastily checking out of another horrible property in downtown Hershey that shall remain nameless but sounds like a lot like "mays inn"), I knew I would be happy here. The place is gorgeously laid out, with tons of natural light. The lobby has an inviting fireplace, as does the large room used for breakfast.
The staff was incredibly friendly from top to bottom - always greeted with smiles and no request was ignored or judged. They even went above and beyond with our company and left gift bags outside each of our rooms for after we returned from work! Totally unnecessary, but such a lovely gesture.
The rooms are large (I had a suite, but the regular rooms are also quite spacious) and super clean. Honestly, I would hire these housekeepers to clean MY home! There is a large refrigerator and microwave in every room. The beds are super comfortable. The coffee in the lobby is fabulous and always available. The breakfast is great. The pool and hot tub are both lovely and clean. The internet service is fast and free. There is even a book sharing program in the lobby where you can borrow books from this property and return them to another Carlson hotel!
I can't say enough about this property. it's fabulous! It's a bit off the beaten path, but only 5-10 minute drive to Hershey Park and downtown Hershey, PA.

We just passing through the area and booked this hotel on line. We spent the day touring Gettysburg, ate a wonderful meal at Appalachian Brewing Co, and stayed up near Hershey to be close to Chocolate World the next day. We happened upon a wonderful car museum on the way to Hershey Chocolate World. Folks in this area are so very nice and friendly.

We were staying at this hotel when the antique automobile club of america's annual convention was in town so that may have been the reason, but this hotel was way overpriced for what it actually was. The staff is friendly and helpful but the rooms are very outdated. Paint was peeling off the walls and the room did not seem to have been redecorated in at least 20 years. The tv remotes worked poorly and reception was bad.

I wish that I had read the reviews about the mold/smell issue before we checked in last Friday night. The hotel is convenient to the highway but is set in the middle of a parking lot without much scenery. My son and I checked in and went to our second floor room. Upon entering the room, we knew we could not stay as the smell was pronounced and unpleasant. We asked the front desk for a different room and they offered one on the first floor. The smell in this room was different and more like moldy air conditioners. Given my son's allergies and our plan to relax in the room (after three days of college visits), I knew we had to ask for a refund. The manager was extremely professional, apologized for the problem and explained that the ever-present rains had caused great difficulty for them (the rain has been unbelievable in PA this fall) and he credited our stay. He offered to call the Hampton Inn up the road to get us into a room but we decided to take care of it ourselves.

I appreciated the manager's kindness but I would not suggest that folks stay here until someone posts a positive review. We noticed that many of the rooms had their doors propped open (using the security swing lock) so I suspect it's a great problem.
