It was an avg hotel. It was clean, which is very important to me. The daytime front desk was very nice. And they had a pool which my daughter enjoyed. By the way, I saw on other reviews negative comments about trains passing too close. We stayed on the 3rd floor where the noise is supposed to be the worst. It was not an issue even for a second. I didn't hear a train at all.
The problem during my stay was the power outage during the night. I was staying with my daughter w/out my husband and got really scared when the air got very stale, I couldn't see anything in the pitch darkness (the outage was due to a car accident that took down power lines so there were no lights outside either). I panicked. Luckily the lights went on shortly after I woke up. This, of course is not the hotel's fault. However, when I phoned downstairs to the front desk they were short with me and not very reassuring. My friend in another room phoned the front desk during the outage and no one picked up.
Additional point, is that the hotel is not worth the money they are charging. I know that it's hard to find a cheaper hotel in Hershey area. The next few nights we stayed in a B&B - a much much better value and a much better experience.
Oh, yes, breakfast was not tasty here.
