The Hershey Lodge charges way too much for accommodations. Our room faced a parking lot & the a/c (or heat) was noisy, too hot or cold. There is nothing special about this hotel except its name. If I didn't know better, I would have thought a Days Inn, Clarion, Best Western, you get the idea.
There are corridors & rooms everywhere in a spider web fashion. Be prepared to have no idea where your room is!
The indoor pool w/ hot tub was the best part of our stay. The hotel itself & rooms are clean, the lobby is a huge space w/ gas fireplaces & comfy couches. Decor is simple, nice though.
I have to say that my favorite part was the Hershey candy bar you get from the "chocolate" cash register when you check in, cute touch. They also have a chocolate candle burning in the lobby which prepares you for your chocolate adventures! I would stay elsewhere & spend your money at the theme park, chocolate tours, museums or trolley tour.
