Only wanted one night they would not refund second night. Room and bathroom were tiny, old and smelly. The wall heater fell off twice leaving exposed wires.

The checkin staff was very friendly. The beds were extremely comfortable. The only thing we didnt really like was the smell of the room. It smelled very old and stagnant. Other than that it was a good hotel

The room I was first assigned did not match the room I reserved and paid in advance on Travelocity. After telling the manager I wanted to get out of the place he showed me and let me have the room they show on the internet.

Do not stay here. The air conditioner is too loud. The toilet was leaking. The room smelled like hot dogs.

Front desk woman was very friendly. Room itself was nice and clean. Rest of hotel is a little old-fashioned. Lots of parking. Room had mini fridge and microwave which is convenient.

Incredibly convenient to Hershey Park

Pros: Location is tops. It is a good updated hotel with clean room and bath.
Cons: Breakfast could be better - but I'm picky about breakfast.
Location: Perfect location for visiting Hershey Park. The town of Hershey is also worth visiting.
Great location. Perfect choice for our visit Hershey Park.
