My family stayed for one night during a visit to nearby Hersheypark. The front desk staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The lobby is also really impressive! We had a nice breakfast in the attached restaurant before checking out. Will definitely return here on our next HP visit!

We loved the restaurant, O’Reillys! The appetizers we got at night and the early bird breakfast we’re well worth it!

Great stay here; they accommodated my pups easily and were so very pleasant. My air conditioner wasn't working properly and they had someone there to fix it within a couple of minutes. We enjoyed our stay.
