My wife and I booked here for 2 nights Oct 12-Oct 14 through IHG's website for a Hershey Park visit. We read the user reviews on their site and the reviews were mostly positive. We arrived early and were allowed to check right in. The view in this room was terrible. All we could see was a landing filled with stagnant water. I brought it up to the front desk and the young man, sorry that I forgot his name because he was so helpful and deserved to be commended, offered us a suite and even allowed us to pick the room from the lobby. A few hours later after lunch and shopping, we checked into our room. We were extremely disappointed with the condition of the room. The carpet was strained, both beds were sunk, the ceiling in the closet was exposed, the showerhead was covered in some green stuff. So, about an hour and a half after checking in, we checked out, taking the monetary loss and so spent the two nights at the Candlewood Suites a mile away (I will review that later). The staff did everything to make us happy, and I thank them for that. The general manager called me a few days later to apologize. I wish they could have issued me a refund instead.
