My husband and I were extremely satisfied with our wedding reception and stay thereafter. The staff was extremely helpful, got us anything we wanted, made any changes we wanted, and some even participated in the chicken dance with a rubber chicken their head! Everything was done with a smile. They must have asked us a million times how everything was and if there was anything they could get us or do for us. The food was absolutely wonderful, we received many comments from our guest and DJ about the food. The hotel made many changes for us as our plans changed throughout the planning process. They even made a last minute room change for us and really worked with us and our budget. Our wedding suite was really nice, clean, and comfortable. Even the next day when we attended Sunday brunch (which was amazing) we were still being asked how our night was, how our brunch was, and told to let them know if we needed anything. After we checked out I realized I left my vase and roses in the room. A staff member (Vickie) went back up to the room with us and made sure I got my roses back. Derrick, John W., John, the bar tender, Vickie and all of the staff were great.

Room Tip: The suite was amazing, there was a fridge, it was quite, the temperature was perfect.

I was extremly satisfied with my most recent stay for a short business conference. We needed transportation as a group and it was provided with no more that a request to use the motel van to drop us off and then pick us back up. The quality of the stay is beyond remarkable.

Room Tip: express your concerns at chyeck in to allow the consideration to be current.

Our high school sent our soccer team (30 players / coaches) to Hershey for the State Championship and everyone agreed it could not have been a better experience. The accommodations were excellent, the meals were great and the schedule coordination of all of these people went like clockwork. The staff, specifically Dawn Stuart, is the best and I would highly recommend any group that needs multiple venues use this hotel.

My sons and I had a fantastic time!!!!!! When they do well in school I thank them with an ATTA BOY night at a hotel. The staff here was very friendly and accommodating! My son with Autism learned some names and when he spoke to the staff who's name he knew they were friendly towards him. Steve the chef, Missy, Brian, and all the others will be the reason we come back. We had to wait on a ride and were allowed to stay in our room and pool until we got picked up!!! AWESOME!!!! I look forward to our next visit!!!!!!

Rooms clean , people pleasant, good in restraint was ok for the most part, but service was slow especially first thing in.the morning for breakfast and late dinner. One day the chef for breakfast didn't know how to cook a white egg omelet, turn out pretty disgusting although the previous two days was ok

Excellent service at our stay and the manager was helpful and pleasant and friendly. The workers were always saying "good morning" or "good afternoon" and always had a happy behavior. Pool area was nice (very large compared to other indoor pools) and the hot tub was so large compared to others. Front desk was outstanding service.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny
