“New hotel right off the highway that allows pets”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This was a great find. I was travelling across country with my 2 dogs and it was getting late, so I pulled off the interstate into this LaQuinta. Not only do they take dogs, but they don't charge extra for them. The hotel was very clean and was reasonably priced. The beds were comfortable and the room was very quiet. I got a great night's sleep and was on my way after the complimentary breakfast in the morning. I would recommend for families travelling with pets.

The Good: This property is new and right off the intersate. The rooms have nice furnishings and plenty of outlets. Staff was very friendly. The lobby is modern in design and decor and has a water feature. Snack pantry is available at the front desk. Very convenient to Hershey Park. Pool and a hot tub.

The Bad: Housekeeping left A LOT to be desired. The floor in the bathroom was dirty. Crud (including hair) in the corners. I used a towel to wipe up water on the floor and it was filthy. I found dried animal feces (this is a pet friendly hotel) under the night table. The room had a fragrance that was completely overpowering -- which was evidently not evidence of actual cleaning. Hotel was full so breakfast was also - long line, no place to sit. Went back to the room and had cold pizza instead.

I did discuss the housekeeping issue with front desk at check out they seemed genuinely concerned and sincere about addressing it with the staff.

We often travel with dogs, and even "dog friendly" hotels can be a hassle, but this one is great--no issues, they even have several stands outside with bags and buckets for pick up. We reserved a room with a jetted tub, and that was great too. Sometimes the jacuzzis can be a disappointment for so many reasons, but this one works, there is plenty of hot water, and it is just the thing at the end of a long day. Our room is large, comfortable, it has a flat screen TV, the climate control even has a thermostat (!) breakfast is included and is good, with waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, bagels, etc. the front staff has been very helpful with everything. Oh, and the towels are even fluffy, a fantastic bonus.

The best place about this place is the staff. Always ready to help. Always professional.
Pros- nice clean rooms. Family restaurant in the parking lot. Close to Hershey.
Cons- close to Hershey, summertime is not the time to stay here if you're looking to relax. They do allow dogs, so you may hear a bark or two.

The staff were excellent here. They shared info. on restaurants, directions etc. The hotel is close to Hershey Park so it's a fantastic location.There were many children staying here with their parents so it was a busy place.
There is a pool and jacuzzi. It gets a little hectic at times with all the children returning from the park to swim but we enjoyed all the activity.
There is a continental breakfast served every morning. There are long lines of people making waffles & toast. The area becomes very congested. The layout is not very good in the breakfast area. I saw several people leave & bring food to their rooms as there was very little seating. The staff will open up an adjacent meeting room if you request it. I have to say they did their best to make it more comfortable for everyone in that respect. The staff also kept replenishing the food. Breakfast is served daily between 6 and 10a.m.

We stayed here for our trip to Hersheypark which was literally right down the road! It was such a convenient location! The rooms were nice. I tried to do laundry but my room key wouldn't work for some reason to get me into the laundry room but I didn't bother to ask the front desk (I didn't really WANT to do laundry so being locked out was a convenient excuse LOL) so if you plan on doing laundry while you're here you might want to ask about that. But other than that we got exactly what we wanted out of this stay!

Needed a place near Hershey. The staff was extremely friendly and room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was also able to suggest a very good restaurant where we had a wonderful dinner. The fact that they were so close to Hershey Park without being overpriced was a big bonus.
