“Love the Hershey Lodge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2010

Just spent a wknd at the Hershey Lodge and loved every minute of it. We debated whether to stay at a less expensive hotel and decided to book the package at the lodge which included breakfast for the kids & park tickets. It was an excellent deal! And so nice to have the shuttle to the park so you don't have to worry about parking. The Forebay has great food! And you have to try one of the many chocolate martini's in the lobby bar - the white chocolate martini was delicious! Spend a few extra bucks and stay at the Lodge!! We can't wait to go back. :)

Great location if going to park. LARGE hotel that sprawls around. Rooms clean but a little dated. Plastic cups in Bathroom and spotty wi-fi service in rooms. No complimentary bottles of water many views of rooms look out onto parking lots. Clean, nice people at check in. Concierge needs a little training. Food pretty decent.

Great package and value for a quick weekend get-away to Hersey Park. Tickets were included in the package and tickets and meals for the kids were included too. Great food in the restaurants. Great staff who found our kid's electronic game charger left in the room and are shipping it back to us. Now that's service! Shuttle bus service to the park is a great perk too.

I travel pretty often and always find things wrong with my hotel room from stains on the sheets to dirty bathroom mirrors. I am a very picky person. The Hershey Lodge was exceptional in all aspects! I can't wait to return.

2 adults, 2 kids aged 10 and 13 stayed here for one night with the Springtime in the Park package. I wish we had stayed 2 nights.

Room was spacious and beds were comfortable. Decent sized bathroom, unfortunately without extra sink outside. Free wi-fi.
Too early for the outdoor pool to be open, but kids did try the ndoor pool and hot tub. It gets crowded quickly.
Check-in staff seemed a little brusque, but she did hand over all our tickets. The parking valets were actually more helpful with directions to our room and then the park shuttle. This place is huge.

Our package included the buffet breakfast at Libbie LIbkickhers, which was excellent. We also had dinner at Bears Den, which was ok. Son and I then attended a cookie-making demo, which was fun if crowded. We explored the rest of the lodge - again, it's huge - while husband and daughter went back to the park. We all got a good nights sleep, even though our room was next to a stairway and outside door.

The price was reasonable with the package, and I would consider staying here again if a similar offer was available.

We booked a one night package here with our two children (ages 6 & 9) that included breakfast as well as admission to the Hershey Story Museum, Hershey Gardens, the 3D Hershey Movie at Chocolate World, and admission to Zooamerica for our whole family. It was certainly worth the $$.

Our room was tastefully decorated and the kids got a kick out of all the subtle, chocolate-themed touches (i.e. hershey kisses on the wallpaper, chocolate scented shampoo, etc). Room was very comfortable even for the four of us.

We were very impressed with the pool staff who were very energetic and organized pool games for all the kids who happened to be at the pool when we were there. There were contests, races, and prizes for all the kids. My son also loved the free mini golf course as well.

We were also very happy with the quality of breakfast though we likely never would have eaten in the main dining room for that meal if we had to pay the prices that were on the menu -- seemed more like room-service pricing.

The Cocoa Beanery Cafe was very comfortable and had everything from paninis to ice cream. We also ate at the Bears' Den -- a sports bar-themed restaurant that was offering a "kids eat free" promotion through April 30.

Overall, we were very happy with our brief stay at the Lodge and would stay there again if ever in the area.
