“Older hotel but clean...”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

My family stayed it this hotel which is just a mile from Hershey Park. It is a quaint older hotel that is in the center of a residential neighborhood. We were staying on a Friday and Saturday to catch both the park and the Dave Matthews Concert. The clerk, Peter was very pleasant and even shown me a shortcut to the park! Since we had 6 people we got the two room suite with full kitchen. Even though this is an older hotel the room was very clean. The room was kept very cool by window AC units which did a great job in the 90 degree heat. Nice Flat screen TV, Quick internet and clean beds. Closet door was broken but would close. Very quiet, beautiful neighborhood, and close to restaurants, (try "Your Place Tavern"). Got up too late for breakfast, cozy parking lot. Felt very safe. Would recommend.

Took my family to Hershey Park and really liked this hotel. It was simple but comfortable, quiet and clean and definitely a good value for the money. There was a small indoor heated pool which my children enjoyed and a nice continental breakfast. My children enjoyed making their own waffles. Best of all, it was very close (1 mile maybe) to Hershey Park so we took a break from the park for two hours and swam, showered and ordered pizza before returning to the park until closing time. I would stay here again.

The advantages: very close to Hershey Park, Outlet shopping, restaurants etc, friendly staff...Hotel room was for the most part, clean and big enough for 6 people however, outdated and in need of lots of repairs at almost $300 per night. Cabinets would fall off if opened, closet doors missing, door would close but not lock to name a few. We had the breakfast one morning that was it, nothing to write home about. The kids wouldn't use the indoor pool and our room had some bad smells....overall it was just a place to lay our heads and we didn't spend much time there. It was okay but not for that price.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor. Once inside the room you were in the master bedroom, then the kitche...

this guest stayed in the one bed room suite with full kitchen and dinning table etc....
they said that room was clean enough. if mentioned about closet it could have been fixed.
in the summer time price for that room can be higher. hotel rooms were renovated only 2 years back.

My friend & I stayed there for 3 nights. You had to leave the air conditioner run on high or other wise the room smelled musty. Then it would get too cold. It seemed like when I would get into bed I would begin to itch. I checked everything so it may have been the detergent that they used on the sheets. The lobby always had a odd smell also like onions or something. You had to walk up a large flight of stairs to get to breakfast. If you were handicapped that would be impossible. One good thing about the hotel was that it was in a beautiful residential area. You could walk down the street and look at all the beautiful homes. I would stay there in a pinch if I had to but now that we know the area we have found the White Rose Motel that we will be staying at in July that comes highly recommended & is right beside a quilt shop!

had an upstairs suite which is great with kids, suite was clean and large, bathroom and kitchenette also very good, nice sized regrigerator pool was well taken care of. Can walk into downtown attractions. Breakfast was a little below average when other hotels are considered. Staff was average, not much help when it came to questions regardning the area, had many menus on hand but could not answer questions. For a tourist destination I would expect more from the staff. Do not use the vending machines.

The room was clean and big. The service was excellent.
This might be a 2 star hotel but its worth more.
The breakfast is included and automatically saves you the money for it.
This hotel is AAA approved so you get the discount for that also.
Microwave, fridge makes life easier when you have a kid.
Comes with Free WIFI. A dedicated PC in the lobby with printer. It has its own pool also.
Over all a good experience..
