The Simmons Motel provides basic, no frills lodging at an economical price (given the area). The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room (#4) that I had was clean and for the most part comfortable. Some basic amenities that I have come to expect were not available in my room (hair dryer, iron, ironing board, shampoo/conditioner and only one bar of soap the first night), so pack those things if you think you will need them. They may have been available from the office - I didn't ask. No in room coffee maker, but coffee was available in the office. Furnishing and decor are dated, but functional. TV was new. In-room refrigerator and microwave were nice touches. Bathroom was small. Linens were plentiful. Sink is in the bathroom (no vanity outside of bathroom, but the dresser had a mirror, chair and outlets were close by). We could walk to Hershey Park entrance (about 15 minutes); a Rite Aide is virtually next door; and a few restaurants were also in walking distance. Given the traffic - this is a plus - not to have to move your car. There is an above ground pool available - we didn't get to use it - looked clean and nice, though. All in all a pleasant stay - just keep your expectations at an appropriate level.
