We originally booked a 2 night stay at the Howard Johnson in Hershey, PA. We wanted an outdoor pool, proximity to Hershey Park, and comfort. The visuals on the HoJo web site seemed adequate, so I booked online. Boy, are pictures deceiving! e got there, and were attacked by flies in the lobby. It was run down, and the manager was not very helpful. He showed us our room, and the beds were sunken in, the room smelled of mold, and was tiny! We were a group of 4, so this was not going to work. I got my money back and left running! We then went to about 4 other hotels in the Hershey Park viscidity, and were thoroughly disappointed. I found availability at the Best Western Premier Central Hotel and Conference Center in Harrisburg, which on the GPS, showed it was only about 18 minutes away. We pulled into the parking lot, and out eyes lit up. We were greeted with a smile by a young lady named Sagan, who also gave us each a Hershey chocolate bar LOL. The rate was the same as the HoJo, and the hotel was 150 times nicer. The rooms were huge, and ours opened up directly to the pool, game room, and fitness center. Service was outstanding, as the staff is incredibly helpful. We even got upgraded to a family room, which was enormous, for our 2nd night.
It was so worth the 18 minute drive. I would totally stay here again.
