The White Rose Motel is a small family run motel on the edge of Hershey. Since Hershey is a small town it's still close to Hershey Park.
The room was small. There were four of us traveling, two adults and two kids. The room was a bit cramped and we kept bumping into each other. If you have a large family I'd recommend two rooms.
The shower had decent water pressure which is a bit unusal for a small motel, and the shower drained a bit slowly. The towels were thin and a bit scratchy. There was a coffee maker and fridge in the room (this is always a plus). The A/C was good but it was loud, kinda like sleeping on an airplane. The beds were fine, at least I didn't wake up with a sore back. The room was clean and secure, which is pretty much all I require from a motel room.
There was a pool but we never used it.
If you get the chance make sure to take a walk behind the motel. There are a few houses behind the White Rose. Keep an eye out for the albino squirrel. Cute squirrel.
We only stayed two nights, just long enough to spend a day at Hershey Park.
Overall I'd say it was a good experience.
The lady in the office was pleasant enough, although I got the feeling she could be a bit snippy if provoked, but she was nice to us.
Oh and yes.. the town does smell like Chocolate. Not all the time and not every where in town. To me it smelled like baking brownies. It was strongest when you dorve by the Hershey factory.
