This little motel room was extremely clean, towels were big and full and wonderful; the TV and WiFi worked just fine. It had not a lot of extra space, but we were out and about except for a little time in the evening so it didn't matter. Right across the street is an Italian Restaurant which also made this a...

This little motel was extremely clean and well taken care of. You'll note it is not a five star resort, so as long as you don't expect all of the frills, you'll be happy. They do have microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms, and that's a nice touch. The bed was comfortable, the heat worked, and the shower was hot,... More

We stayed at this motel on a recent trip to the area. We turned in around 10:00 pm and after midnight became aware of TV noise from the adjoining room. As the night wore on the TV volume came up significantly. Ear plugs made of tissue paper were not effective. I wrapped on the wall but no response. Starting at... More

This is motel was perfect for our one night stay. It's an older motel & the accommodations were basic but very clean. It's on a Main Street but because the rooms are toward the back of the property we didn't hear any noise. The room size was average. The bathroom & shower were good. There was no included breakfast but... More

Good value, but expect no frills! This place has a perfect location of 20-25 minutes from Hershey Park. Comfy bed, clean rooms, free internet, but the TV service was questionable. On a different note, loved the fireflies and bunnies in the backyard! :)

Nothing special, but the cost is low and the rooms are clean. No amenities at all. If that works for you, it is half the cost of chain hotels in this area. Second time we have stayed here. No issues, just keep in mind that it is an old facility, designed for the 1950's traveler.

I've stayed at this motel many times in the past as I often go to Elizabethtown. The place is very good value for the price. The rooms are clean, nice, and the the beds usually fairly comfortable. However, the bed in the room I had this last time (#34) was awful. It was extremely hard and uncomfortable. I normally prefer... More

This was a perfect stop over. We just needed 1 night and stopped in without reservation. We asked for a room at the end hoping it would be quieter and it was. Reasonable price and very clean in all areas. I would stay again and appreciated the previous posts about he cleanliness. It was the reason we chose it.

The room was very clean BUT the mattresse was very very hard my back was hurting after the first night and then for the next few nights they need new mattresses and they also need some kind of service for the TV if you have kids there is nothing for them to watch !!!
