“Great for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stayed here for our trip to Hershey for 5days/4nights. Two adults, three children got the 2 bedroom suite. Suite was clean and no funny smells 3 large flat screen TVs and a dvd player. Full size fridge was a must for us as well as microwave. Breakfast was good as far as free hotel breakfasts go staff was always helpful and friendly and kept it stocked. Dinner we didn't do as our kids are picky eaters and there is only 1 selection. Pool area was very clean and they even had noodles for guests to use. Also liked the fact that there are more entrances on the sides of the hotel so can parkcloser to your room and not have to use the lobby to enter/exit all the time and they require room key to enter so I t's very secure. Overall a great stay and much cheaper and quieter than staying closer to Hershey area its only about a 20 min drive to the park and so worth it!

This hotel more than met our expectations. The rooms were large, clean and full of amenities. The staff was great and friendly. They serve a continental breakfast in the morning as well. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

As a Hilton Diamond frequenting the Homewood brand along with several sibling brands, I found this property to be problematic. Room prep was faulty requiring a move upon check-in. Side entrances smelled bad and the central courtyard basketball backboard provided regular noise from morning until late night. It should be located elsewhere with a curfew.

Stayed here during a Hershey Park vacation with another family. The hotel is about 25 minutes from Hershey Park and is located in an office/industrial park. Not many food options within walking distance. The front desk staff (Troy and Terri) and manager (Kevin) were very helpful. Breakfast was substantial and good.

Homewood Suites by Hilton is an excellent find - the staff, the rooms, the amenities and the complementary breakfasts and evening meals were top notch at all at an extremely reasonable price. The front desk staff went above and beyond in anticipating our needs. It can be costly and patience-trying when travelling with children but this hotel's price, service and offerings made it feasible for our family to have a great mini-vacation. We will highly recommend this hotel to friends/family.

Hands down the Homewood Suites brand has to be the best brand for the $$$ where comfort and amenities are concerned. This location maintains that same standard we have come to know. Breakfast was your typical "hotel breakast" selections as my son calls it but just a little better quality then other brands. Property well maintained. Room was comfortable and clean. Spent little time there as we were in and out but everything looked great. Thank you Homewood Suites Mechanicsburg.
