We weren't there very long because we got in late after a concert, but our room was clean and had all of the basic things - safe, microwave, mini fridge, TV. The shower was decent sized with decent pressure and warm water. I found the pillows lackluster (flat) but the bed was comfortable. The majorly disappointing thing was the continental... More

This was probably one of the smallest hotels I have been to, but the room was very spacious, clean and lovely. The continental breakfast was nice and the price was great! It was right off the highway and close to many places to eat.

Hotel is conveniently located just off I-81. Our non-smoking room was well equipped for the low price. Single queen bed, refrigerator, microwave, iron/ironing board, safe, spacious bathroom. Honestly was very surprised how nice the room was for the entry level rate! Got there late and left early so didn't inspect room too much. Did not take notice of any dirt... More

The check in person was friendly. The hotel is off I-81, but not highly visible off the main road. However, there are large signs to point where the hotel is. The room was clean. The mattress was a little lumpy. The room had a good amount of receptacles. I liked that the sink was located outside the bathroom. The internet... More

This hotel is literally right off I-81. It sits back off the main road and the entrance can be a bit hard to find especially if it's dark. It appears to have very little parking, so busy nights may be a problem for some, but it looks to have larger vehicle parking up on the hill. My room was on... More

Econo Lodge is probably the most variable of the Choice Hotels brand. This one is one of the nicer ones. It is all indoors unlike some motel version of Econo Lodge's. The room was clean, bathroom was a little small, but functional. The hotel sits along I81 so depending on the side you are on there may be some road... More

Very convenient to the highway; bright colors in the room and it seemed clean enough. Was good for the one night passing through but I wouldn't suggest a family staying here if you are visiting Hershey. Breakfast was definitely "continental". Carbs and coffee - that's it. As we were thinking it, one guest summed it up well as she looked... More

The staff was friendly. The breakfast was good. The room was nice but small. The room needed to be vacuum better. The t.v. keep upgrading every ten minutes. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel was very modern.

For the price I paid, I expected much less than what I got. Everything was clean and unstained, including the bedding. The heater smelled a bit when you first turned it on but that is expected with any heater. Staff were all pleasant and eager to make my stay a great one. Will be back next year!

This hotel was conveniently in between Hershey and Harrisburg. Myself and my husband were staying in the area for a show and loved it the bed was comfortable and clean, the room was clean, it also included a mini fridge and a microwave. Well will be staying here a few times again so we have more time to enjoy Hershey.
