“no frills, but right near Hersheypark”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night. It is a motel that has not been updated for a long while, but is clearly cleaned and cared for well. The staff is super nice. Roadway is noisy, but we were too tired to care. It is fine for crashing after a long day at Hershey. The rooms are not the kind you'd want to hang out in for a long time, but for sleeping and showering, it's fine. When my boys were younger, we always would pay up for Hershey Lodge, because they did not have the stamina to stay at the park all day. Now that they're teens and just want to ride coasters all day, a basic HoJo that is 2 miles away is perfect.

We were pleasantly surprised at how big the room was! Large enough for the
four of us to be very comfortable. The "kitchen" area was a plus.
Continental breakfast left a lot to be desired--frozen donuts and scary looking cereal--not very appealing.

Reviewed June 28, 2014

Made reservations too late and not able to get anything else. Comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, the AC worked well.staff seemed a accommodating. It is an older place, some updating has been done, it the bath tub is stained and looked dirty, may have only been age, My biggest problem was around the door in the bathroom there were some small rolls of brown stained toilet appear, and that discussed me. Left a small tip for the maid to see if it was a temporary over sight, still not cleaned up. Breakfast was minimal. Guess we are used to Homewood Suites, Residents Inns and even Fairfield Inns, this was not up to that standard.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.
