The front desk staff were not unfriendly nor very warm. My wife and I were given a room adjacent to the highway where trucks made an overwhelming noise. Even as club members the room rate was probably the highest in the area. We though we had a one bedroom suite but the room turned out to be a king suite... More

This hotel is just like the other HIE's we have stayed at in Pennsylvania. Very friendly and helpful staff, a clean and well appointed hotel, plenty of parking and a very good breakfast. The bed is quite comfortable and the air handling in the room is very quiet. We certainly will stay here again.

While the price is high given the location, the staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. The included breakfast was sufficient and check in/out was quick and painless. I liked the fact that breakfast was open for an extended amount of time.

The place is ok but quite expensive. This is because there is little competition in the area. There is an old motel near by. The staff was fine. Breakfast was basically the same that you get in the $90-$100 range places. The parking lot is not easy to navigate if you have mobility problems. The hotel must have a lot... More

The hotel had a clean appearance but it had a horrible musty smell. This hotel poorly represents the HIE brand. I would not stay here again. A return visit to Hershey Park would result in hotel reservations closer to the park and a rejection of accommodations that smelled of mildew/ must.
