“Top notch hotel with top notch service”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

This is definitely a top notch hotel with top notch service. The staff is wonderful. It's a great place to take the family. My kids especially love the indoor AND outdoor pool. There is plenty to do without leaving the hotel (pools, game room, shopping, restaurants, etc). If you are travelling to Hershey and are going to stay a few nights ... I definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If travelling with kids that like to swim, ask for a room by the pool. It's a very large hotel...

We just returned from our 7th visit at Hershey Park in the Dark Weekend. We have always spent our weekend at the Hershey Lodge and have never been disappointed! Every year we have been the weather has been mild and clear. Well this weekend we had SNOW, and many inches of it! We planned ahead based on the weather, and visited the park on Friday night. Which worked out great considering the "Historical Storm" that hit on Saturday. We spent the morning at Chocolate World, then to the lodge for swimming in the pool, game room etc. But the best part was all the activities that were offered (for the children) as a result of the weather and the park not being open-bingo, scavenger hunt, movie night-the staff really went above and beyond for their patrons that evening. We were happy snowed in parents and the kids were just as entertained. Couldn't wait to write this review, and I have found that if you treat the staff as you would like to be treated it really makes for a pleasant stay-not just here but any resort. All of the staff was warm and helpful-we were lost finding our room (1st time in the tower) and a sous chef (perhaps coming into work) in the hall guided us in the right direction. So I say disregard the negatives of other reviewers-listen to me and give it a try-we generally only stay at 5 star resorts-but come on folks this is Pennsylvania-not Miami. Hokey maybe, friendly clean fun-yes!

Room Tip: If you want to be parked by your vehicle (there is shuttle service to the park though) request a roo...

I am staying at the Hershey Lodge for a conference for six days. Unfortunately, everythign else in the area is booked, or I would check out and go elsewhere. For the price of this room, I expected a much nicer room. When I first opened the door, it hit an overstuffed chair. The room is VERY small and the furniture is all crammed in. It is more like a motel as you park in front of your room, however, it also has a "back" door. This allows you to have noise issues from both sides. Upon entering the room, I was hit with a musty odor. I think it may have been from all the rain they had a few months ago. The carpet is very old and dated as well. Much of the visitors are coming for the Hershey Park and Halloween events, so they do a great job of catering to familes. If I visit again with my kids, I will not stay here. First morning I was here, I grabbed a towel to dry off and it was completely sour and rancid. Horrible!! I had to shower again. Happened 3 times in six days. You have to walk to the lobby through a parking lot and through another building and down the elevator. What a pain! I must say that everyone was very helpful and very friendly. Thus the poor and not terrible rating.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the towers and nothing on the ground level.

We stayed at Hershey Lodge for a spa weekend. That means.....we didn't have kids with us. The hotel was perfectly fine for the first night. The second night was a different story. It was a discount night for UPS workers and their families. There were mobs of UPS workers and mobs of kids. The wall in our room was paper thin and the family next door to us didn't stop screaming at each other. There were kids running around in the hall until 11 pm. I blame the parents, not the hotel, for this.
The spa treatments at the Hershey Hotel, 3 miles away, were wonderful.

Room Tip: Our room was a 5 minute walk from the main lobby. Too far, especially if you forget something in you...

Awesome hotel. Very comfortable and friendly. Our whole experience from check-in to check-out was great. Easy access to the area's attractions. If you want the chocolate rush, this is the place to go.

Room Tip: Kisses Tower is the best place

Gorgeous hotel...extremely comfortable...great staff...the hotel is HUGE!...One thing I would warn of is not being made aware of the required credit card hold for the room's mini-bar at arrival...Overall wonderful stay!

Room Tip: First time stay so none at this time

Very happy with our Hershey trip. We spent 5 days at the lodge. No too fancy, but definitely family and kid friendly. Lots of free activities. Lots of free chocolate. Close to the attractions in Hershey. We were very pleased.
