Dear Guest,

I would like to thank you for your feedback. I noticed that your post indicated that you stayed with us back in February and that your stay with was memorable enough to you that you still took the time to post a review for other travelers to review. I was also pleased to hear that your stay with us was "perfect" and that you can't wait to come back! Our staff memebers take great pride in knowing that their hard work does make a difference.

Yes, we do have an ideal location with many meal options (including delivery) in the nearby area, especially if you would like to stay in, relax and watch for favorite show on one of our flat screen TV's.

We look forward to your return visit to our house!

Regards,

James Gordon

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Hershey with my wife and 3 boys in 2 rooms. Check in was quick and receptionist polite and friendly.
It's located right near the I-83 but there was very little noise from it.
Rooms were very nice, spacious and beds comfortable.
The rooms we had were located at one end of the corridoor near the ice machine and the noise these machines make when dispensing are quite loud and could be heard in our rooms, why do people have to get ice at 1 o' clock in the morning?!! which is what we heard one night.
I was also woken by loud music coming from the room next to me, phoned the night receptionist who said he would deal with it and within a few minutes he was knocking on the door of the room, then when no one answered he went in and turned the music off as the room was empty and the radio alarm had been set to come on in the middle of the night.
There was a problem with the hot water the first morning as it was only lukewarm, I heard the maintenance man say at breakfast that it was being looked at and it was fixed by the next day.
Breakfast was fairly good, cereals, a couple of hot items, yoghurts, fruit, pastries etc also a pancake maker, nice to have fresh warm pancakes.
Pool was a fair size, outdoor but fairly warm.
Lots of various places to eat on Union Deposit Road and a Mcdonalds right next door.
Overall a good choice if your looking for somewhere near Hershey Park which is about a 20 minute drive away, staff were all very pleasant and helpful

We stayed here for three nights on a vacation to Hershey and Lancaster to tour the Amish country. Our room was very clean and very spacious. The staff here are extremely nice and very helpful. The lady at the front desk, Diane, was so kind and helped us in planning our day trip to see the Amish. She even wrote out step by step directions which led us straight to our destination with no problems. There is also a guy that works at night at front desk who wears a cowboy hat and we think his name was Scottie(sp?) He has the best personality and is truly a pleasure to deal with. THis hotel is also located in a very safe area with good lighting.If you are looking for a hotel, look no further. This is the place!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room with king bed and pullout sofa. Very spacious!

We stopped here on our way to Cooperstown Dreams Park for a baseball tournament. SInce it was over half way and had a great tourist spot in Hershey, it made the ideal location. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The pool was well maintained and the staff was very friendly. Check-in and out was very simple and we got a great night's rest. Nice place to stay.

Spent one night (less than 10 hours) on Christmas Day at this property enroute from Central NY to South FL. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Good area around hotel (street with sidewalk and snowcovered grassy areas) to walk a dog. Felt safe leaving a packed car overnight in the parking lot and walking dog at night around hotel.

Didn't have breakfast as we left too early in the morning.

Dear "Weary" Traveller;

Thank you for staying with us this past holiday season. I'm glad you selected our hotel as your resting point during your very long drive to Florida. As a parent, and pet owner, I know how important it is to find quality accommodations that will welcome all "members" of the family, including children! Now that you found us, I hope that you will come back and visit us during your next trip through our area. Make sure you allow enough time for our complimentary hot buffet breakfast. Since your visit, we've now added a new pancake machine. Hot fresh pancakes, made to order, are the best!

Please call me for reservations. (717)-561-8100.
