“Sweet Package is a Sweet Deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2011

Sweet Package is a great value. Great Room: comfortable beds (very soft), large TV, compact refrigerator, awesome shower. Clean, clean, clean. Attractions: Minitaure Golf, recreation center which includes Wii room with 4 TV's/systems and arts and crafts for the little ones. Hershey Park, Hershey Gardens and Museum were all included in the deal. Truly a great value. We previewed the Park after 7:30pm and use the one day admission ticket the following day. Gardens are truly beautiful especially the Butterfly portion. It all overlooks Hershey Park and it's minutes away from the Lodge. The shuttle was nice. The drivers share stories from the town. It's like a Tour shuttle bus. Chocolate World is a must. The ride is free and really cool for the whole family. We went with a 15 year (Jolly Rancher) old and a 35 month old (Hershey's Kiss). They were both happy! The entire Hershey experience was wonderful. Even with spots of torrential rain, we were able to have fun! The only snafu was the Front Desk. We arrived really early for check-in (11am) and understood that no room would be available. He did take our phone number and "said" he would call when one became available. Well, that call never came. I had to go back at 2:30pm when noticing people arriving and getting their rooms. I was attended by another Front Desk person who quickly got me a room and 4 bars of chocolate. They give out chocolate with your room keys! It's the little things that make the experience, right?! I had asked for a playpen for my son. When we got back to the room that evening, they had not only provided us with a clean playpen but they also included a box of baby products and sheets, comforter and towels for my little one! It made me so happy and valued. Can't wait to go back. Our stay was on August 14th - 15th.

Room Tip: Stay away from the 1st floor if you want a good night sleep. First floor tends to be noisier. We s...

Just got back from an overnight stay at the Hershey Lodge and it was perfect! We stayed with another family and had a great time with all 5 of the kids in our group. The check in was quick and painless. We got our park tickets immediately at check in (along with our Hershey bars!!), even though our rooms weren't ready and headed right to the park, less then 10 mins away! The concierge called us when our rooms were ready while we were enjoying the rides! Our room was perfect for the one night, with a fridge, coffee maker and the softest bed I have ever slept on, which was very welcome after a long day in the park!!
My one and only complaint would be that there are no signs to direct you to the Lodge! Was very difficult to find. I might still be driving around if it hadn't been for the nice person at the front desk who helped to navigate me to the hotel! Thank you!!!

I had read mixed reviews about the Hershey Lodge accommodations and someone I work with recommended we stay at the Tower. We made the request at time of reservation and the it was granted (top floor as well). The room was very clean and comfortable. You can't beat the convenience of the shuttle (we never waited more than 5 minutes) and being able to get in the park 1 hour earlier was a nice benefit. We had an excellent dinner at the Hershey Grill. Good service. Our kids really enjoyed it (particulary the chocolate shampoo and conditioner!).

Stayed at the Hershey Lodge for 3 days, August 10th to the 12th. Lobby was cozy and inviting. All of the restaurants on the property were excellent. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Pools and mini golf were accessible and nice to have on the property. Shuttle to Hershey Park was available and always on time. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall was a nice experience and we will definitely be back.

We stayed in the tower which looks like a nice hotel. Everything was clean & staff seemed fine. The rooms are small though for the money being paid. There are apparently rooms that are accesible only from the doors that open to the outdoors & this area looks like a rundown motor lodge. I would have been upset if we were assigned one of these rooms. We played mini golf at about 8:00 at night & there was not very good lighting. The pools were all small & unappealling. For a family hotel there were not many kids activities just a smores roast the first night we were there. The Bears Den restaurant was nice & the fact that we had complimentary shuttle service added convenience & almost makes it worth the higher cost per night.

Room Tip: Request a tower room, accept no substitutes!

We stayed at the Hershey lodge for 2 nights August 11 and 12th It was a very nice experience. The Lodge itself is nice and big, the rooms are VERY clean, the staff was friendly and informative. Staying here also gets you discounted tickets to Hershey park, and free tickets to Hershey Story Museum, and Hershey Gardens. The 2 restaurants are wonderful and they also have an indoor and outdoor pool a few Jacuzzi's and a small 1' pool for the kiddies. It is VERY close to all attractions and also the HUGE outlet mall is right down the street.

Room Tip: we stayed at the KISSES tower room 2816

The Hershey lodge is a nice and convenient place to stay in Hershey. However, it is a bit pricey. For that price, I expected better service than what we encountered. Most staff members that we interacted with seemed annoyed to be here. I stood in front of the concierge for 5 min before he even looked up. Then, he seemed disinterested in what I was asking. That attitude was what we encountered from so many staff members. Other than that, the hotel u
Is very pretty.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying in the main building
