Requested non smoking room. First room reeked of smoke so we asked to be moved. Second room okay. Place is old and run down but basically fine, especially for $59 a night. We went out next day and when we returned to the room it smelled like smoke, the patio door was unlocked and there was a smashed cigarette butt right next to it. WTF people? Seriously.

First. Went up to the first room. Vacuum, unmade bed, TV on. Hmm. Dragged everything down to the car went to the desk and requested another room. Was given the one next to it. Stale smell, toilet had to be turned off to keep from running. And then...... Tired, drove 700 miles, juste wanted to sleep. Starting at 10 pm the room next door had the TV on full blast. Slept until 12:30am. Still on. Called front desk at 1:30. Called again at 2:00. I just would hear the phone ring.... And so it went. A dump....

I didn't expect anything fabulous when I booked this hotel, but it was great. Know going in that this is your basic interchange motel. The room was large and clean, and the property was very quiet. The property is convenient to the PA turnpike, and it's a short drive to Hershey Park. Room rate was very inexpensive, especially when breakfast is included. The two people I spoke with at the front desk were personable and efficient. I was also happy to have free wifi, something I didn't really expect at a budget motel.

I based my rating on expectations--very good for the price paid. Couple of small things made me take off a point. While the room was pretty clean to the eye, there was hairspray residue on the mirror on the back of the bathroom door. The rest of the bathroom was spotless. Also, there was a lightbulb out above the lavatory sink. The hallways smelled a little funky, but this funk DID NOT extend into the room. The room smelled fresh (nonsmoking room).

Also, the breakfast could use a little variety. Beverages offered were coffee, tea, juice and milk. Food included bagels, english muffins, cereals, donuts, and a waffle station. A little fruit or yogurt would have been nice.

I would definitely stay here again. I did not use the fitness room or swimming pool, so I can't comment on those. I did notice that the property also offers meeting rooms.
