Rooms are nice, but not luxurious. Free high speed internet, and queen sized beds are great. Surprisingly, Hershey obviously has not gotten any cell carriers to put in a cell site nearby. Reception is atrocious at the lodge. Two sinks in bathroom two are an extra. This is a 4-star hotel, with a 5-star price, yielding a 3-star review. The help is excellent, but the hotel is full in the summer and the lobby feels like Grand Central Station.
The main attraction to the hotel is you get free tickets to the Hershey Museum and the Gardens and you get to go into the park an hour early. Also, the shuttle bus runs often, so the walk to get out of the park is a whole lot shorter than driving (and no real traffic either).
That said, it is a huge premium to other hotels. The first time you go here, it might be worth it since you can do lots of rides in that first hour in the 1/4 or so of the park that is open, but if you come again, there are other less expensive alternatives!
