We stayed here in July of 2016 while visiting Hershey. You truly get service with a smile! The indoor pool area is great for kids and the complimentary ice cream sundaes and Hershey bars were a big hit! Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast at the restaurant was a good deal- 10 dollars for adults, 5 dollars for kids over...

A nice hotel with some cosmetic flaws. In general it's clean and good service. Details of hotel could use updating like peeling wallpaper and dirty molding around tub but basically was ok, just not a brand new, spotless establishment. We were here for a 3-day weekend in July so maybe that's why the pool was jam packed every night but...

We stayed here before and after our flights out of the Harrisburg Airport and this was a great place to stay. They offer a free hotel shuttle and allowed us to park our car in the parking lot for the duration of the stay. The rooms are nice, but could use an update. I felt the rooms were a little...

We spent 4 nights here while visiting Hersheypark with our two daughters. We came here after spending a couple of days in Amish country, and arrived later than we'd planned due to storms and traffic. First of all, the lobby was very welcoming when we arrived, with fresh coffee, hot water for tea, and iced water (with lemon, cucumber, or...

Our stay here was t the end of a 4 day road trip. And we were not disappointed. Hotel was easy to find. Very clean. Staff was more than friendly. Beautiful lobby with lemon water, coffee and tea available. Room was large, beds comfortable. Would have no problem recommended this hotel to friends.
