“A great Family Hotel - but go elsewhere for Breakfast”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This was our second time at the Hershey Lodge. This time we were in one of the outside rooms. I would say the rooms are adequate. Nothing special - but clean.

The lobby of the hotel is a very nice open area - great for families who like to hang out - and let the kids run around a bit while the parents enjoy a cocktail at the bar (the chocolate martini was amazing!).

The location is great for Hersheypark.

I would not recommend the breakfast buffet - we waited 45 minutes for a sub-par meal. Terrible buffet selection - very surprising.

We arrived early, but were promptly escorted to a very comfortable room. We found the facilities and food to be splendid. I agree with other reviewers that it can be difficult to navigate, particularly if you park in the rear near entrance E. It is not easy to find the elevators & main lobby from that location -- the signage is poor. On the other hand, my neighbor kids really liked the candy!

Immaculate, friendly, delicious food everywhere, park is awesome, great pools, beautiful grounds and gardens, easy to drive around, fun outlets and boutiques for shopping, Hershey Center is great, most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Highly recommend trying the chocolate dessert wine at The Circular. Definitely will go back again and again. One of the best amusement parks to visit. Shuttles are great.

Arrived around 4:30 on Friday, September 27, stayed for 2 nights. Check in was quick and the front desk clerk was very friendly. Stayed on the 2nd floor in the tower. We did get lost trying to find entrance K. Layout is a bit confusing. Room was very clean...especially linens, so I was happy about that. My only complaint is that the beds were a tad bit hard.. But my husband and I are used to an extra soft beauty rest bed so for most people, the beds will probably be just fine. Temperature control was great, the in room safe was very convenient. We did have an issue with the wifi but this was quickly addressed with one phone call. We had dinner at the Hershey Grille. Creme brûlée chocolate tini was absolutely delicious. We had burgers and we very pleased. Service was great and we really enjoyed dining outside by the koi pond...flowers were still in bloom. We had breakfast the next morning at Lebbie Lebkichers. Service and food was decent. We took the shuttle to the park,..very convenient. Overall had a great time. Good getaway from the daily grind. And the Pennsylvania countryside is absolutely gorgeous!

Wonderful staff that knows how to treat clients very well and make the best of your stay. Interacted with many and all greeted with a smile.. Just lacking some Hershey "get-up" design to make it feel more part of a Hershey resort.

Room Tip: high rooms better views..

This hotel use to be awesome and clean. They have let the rooms go and cater more to the convention center part. Our room was so dirty and nasty. Cob webs in lights, dust and dirt everywhere. Bathroom had USED towels still hanging in shower. Even after complaining to concierge and house keeping .... we were told it was a new staff over the summer and they were not up to par yet! We were told they change sheets every 3 days.. so when I spilled jelly on my bed after the 4th day and sheets were not changed yet I expected to come into clean sheets and bedspread! NO! jelly was still there! EXCUSES EXCUSES and we were not give one discount! These rooms are over $200.00 per night and the Days Inn has cleaner rooms! I will NEVER stay here again!

Room Tip: find a different hotel!

The old addage "You get what you pay for" holds true here. Although everything from the room, food and drinks to the souvenirs are pricey the quality is outstanding. Our room was classy, upscale and beautiful. Our food was always delicious. The souvenirs are quality products and not crap from China. I love to stay here but you do have to contend with families with occasional loud little ones who stay here too (Hershey Park traffic). Overall it is a beautiful facility with exceptional staff.
