We found this hotel from another discounted site but wanted to warn potential guests. 1- this hotel is 11+ miles from Hershey Park. So if your traveling a distance, be prepared to travel again some more...
2- the room had a musty smell to the room, almost the kinda smell that it had not had a good clean in some time
3- bathtub had light black stains on the bottom and side part
4- the tv kept going on and off just out of no where all of a sudden
5- the 3 lights above the sink are on a motion sensor, they would randomly turn on, even when no one moved JUST as my daughter would fall asleep and wake her up (had to unscrew them just so they would stop going off
6- the chlorine was so strong it burned our eyes and could only stay in maybe 10 minutes
7- my door key wasn't letting us in (either one of them) and the front desk clerk said, "this happens sometimes you just have to keep trying" (we tried ATLEAST 6 times then gave up)
8- the breakfast was traditional continental (mediocre coffee, waffles were good, pastries, bagels, bread) the eggs...were gritty and were not being filled fast enough so every time they refilled them there was a mad dash from hungry guests, then empty again... (We gave up and hit dunkin).
Overall this experience was bleak at best! My husband, daughter, father and I wanted to get away for a couple of days and relax and this was just and awful choice. I feel the price this hotel charges is completely too much for the quality the hotel provides. There are several hotels closer to the park (if that's your purpose) that seem to be a better option.
