This Residence Inn is located only 12 minutes from Hershey Park, and 1/2 hour from the PA. Renaissance Fair, Amish Country, Lancaster outlets, and the Gettysburg Historic Battlefields!
Our king rooms on the 1st floor in the rear building were clean and for the most part up-to-date. We didn't hear any traffic noise from Rt. 322 which runs behind the property. We did however hear the suite above us. Children were running wild and jumping on the bed until 4 am...They resumed at 7 am... Not a restful night for any of us! The bathroom is small and difficult to maneuver around the door, as others have noted. The full sofa beds are extremely uncomfortable--springs and bars cut into your back. They're fine for 2 small children, but wouldn't recommend it for any adult.
The breakfast is a nice perk, but suggest you get there early, if you want anything decent. Our 1st weekend morning we got there late, since we hadn't slept because of the wild kids upstairs!!! The buffet was literally a zoo, people grabbing whatever edible that was left, which wasn't much! The kitchen staff apologized that they didn't realize that so many people would be there, but isn't that the management's job to inform them of the census of current residents?
The location can't be beat, if you plan a multi-day tour of the area. I definitely suggest a GPS, as the entire area is freeways/highways. Alas, the farmland roads I remember as a child, traveling to Hershey, don't exist anymore.
Allergy alert for parents: The Inn does allow pets. I don't know their policy, since we don't have this issue. I'd suggest you call before booking ♥
