We stayed at the Hershey Lodge for two nights. It (and the whole area) are rather Disney-esque except the theme is (of course) chocolate. We stayed in the Kisses towers. The room was good; shampoo and lotion smelled like chocolate. Everything is milk chocolate brown. I'm sensing a theme here!
The layout of the lodge is a bit complicated. In order to get to the swimming pool we were instructed to go down a very long hallway, and then turn and go down yet another long hallway. When we surveyed the area, we realized that we had made a virtual triangle and it would be much quicker and closer to walk across a parking lot. I'm not sure why we and others were directed to walk so far out of the way.
The gift store is very cute with all kinds of Kisses, Hershey and York items. I particularly loved the oversized Peppermint Patties - not seen before or since that trip. Hershey is a good family destination and the Lodge has a limited shuttle service to some of the feature points of the town. All that said, once is probably enough.
