This is our favorite hotel when visiting Hershey. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The last time we stayed, we called for an extra blanket at 11pm and someone came right up. The rooms are always clean. The kids enjoy the indoor pool. We love the hearty breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant.

Two of us were very pleased staying here during our trip from Ohio to New York. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. It was also very advantageous to have such a highly rated restaurant on the property.

Great hotel with friendly staff. Indoor pool and pool area was spacious. Attached Pub had good food and atmosphere. Breakfast was very nice. The 10 pm quiet time was beneficial in calming the boys down.
