The Hershey Lodge is a great alternative for families not looking to spend a lot on Hotel Hershey. I will say that we went during July 4th weekend and I'm sure with it being a holiday it didnt help with the crowd but we had a good time with just a few exceptions.
We were able to check in at 11am. This is probably due to the fact that we had gotten a room with one king bed and because so many families were there, all the queen rooms were booked.
The shuttle service is amazing and very reliable to the park.
Our room was ok, a bit dated, but you're not spending a lot of time there.
The parking was a nightmare after 8pm. If you leave to go to dinner and want to park near your room, you cant. The only option is to park near the lobby but then its a hike to your room.
The pool area was chaos, and there were no available chairs. Also, there is no "break" so kids are in the water non stop leaving really no room for adults to enjoy the water.
Next time, we will probably go to Hershey Hotel instead. It seemed to be more adult friendly.
