“Pleasant Experience”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We stayed at the White Rose Motel for 2 nights while visiting Hershey Park with a 5 year old. I chose White Rose because there were so many reviews talking about how clean the rooms are and the rate was the cheapest I found. Very clean rooms, easy check-in experience, great location, mini-fridge/microwave in room, and we enjoyed the pool. No breakfast, but several restaurants are just down the road. I highly recommend the Hershey Pantry, just a minute or two away (closed on Sunday).

we stayed for 3 nights, the hotel is a small privately owned property with only about 20 rooms, the staff/owners were chatty but I wouldn't say they were overly friendly or helpful, we asked for some restaurant suggestions and they directed us to an area at one end of the parking lot with menus for area eatery's but really didn't offer any personal recommendations, the room was nice enough for a local motel and would have been a great value at $35 a night, unfortunately I payed $135 a night, which was actually more than the local hotel chains but I decided to go for the white rose based on its high trip advisor rating, all and all not a bad stay but certainly nothing special, I guess I just don't understand the mystic of Hershey as my entire trip seemed slightly underwhelming, all I know is I just came back from a business trip in vegas for the same length and payed far less for a 5 star hotel and got far more. my wife said she would stay at the white rose again unfortunately she might be staying there without me because the chain hotel down the street has my vote, it was less expensive and gave me a free breakfast too.

Satyed here for our Hershey Park trip. Very nice mom-and-pop place, almost feels like a B&B rather than a motel. The owner gives out a map and a lot of helpful information, including local menus. There is no breakfast, but Hershey Pantry is right up the road, or you can have a cheap breakfast at Chocolate World. Rooms are bigger than expected (we had the one with 2 beds, and it's as big as most "regular" hotels. Bathroom is full size, with a bath tub; the sink is outside. Toiletries are basic; bring your own if you're particular. Pool is small, but clean; towels and life jackets are provided- great for an evening swim after a hot day. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Second floor is very quiet, but the stairs are quite steep going up.

The rooms at this hotel are just average motel rooms, but do have a microwave and fridge, flat screen tv, and free internet. The pool is new and nice. But what makes this a great place to stay in Hershey is the price and the service. The owner is very helpful. She gave us brochures and maps upon arrival of local attractions and even told us how to buy our Hershey Park tickets at the local Giant's grocery store to save big money. They have a basket of menus on the porch for local restaurants which was a great help. The room was clean and safe. Location to Hershey attractions couldn't be better. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room on second floor to avoid parking lot noise, but there is no elevator.

My family spent 3 nights at the White Rose. It cost us less to stay at the White Rose for the 3 nights than what we would have spent for 1 night at one of the Hershey properties. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and it was very quiet. All rooms have a coffee maker (plus there's coffee made downstairs each morning), microwave, refrigerator, tv, vcr and dvd player. The dvd was a nice addition since it rained one night and my boys had some movies in the car, so we had family movie night when we got back after dinner. The motel is located very close to Hershey Park and the other area attractions. The kids used the pool and although it's outdoors in the middle of the parking lot it has nice landscaping and tall flowers to provide a visual barrier between the cars and the pool goers. The staff are super nice and will make recommendations for restaurants and give you maps and directions if you ask. They also sent a great list of local restaurants and attractions including addresses and a list of places to buy discount Hershey tickets as an attachment with our confirmation email. Great idea and very helpful! Based on the list they sent we also visited the nearby cavern as well as the National Civil War museum. We will definitely be back to the White Rose!

We highly recommend this roadside motel. It is right on the main road and easily found. Very friendly and helpful receptionist. Our room and bathroom was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. We also enjoyed sitting outside the room and eating take-out pizza from a restaurant in Hershey. Pool is very nice.

My family and I just had a great two night stay at the White Rose Motel. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They told us where to get the cheapest admission tickets to Hershey Park, where to park for free when we went to chocolate world and directed us to a great local breakfast spot "The Filling Station"! Most importantly, our room was spotless. Two queen size beds with fresh clean bedding. The bathroom was clean and shower tile grout was pure white! The water pressure was also great! As a Health Commissioner and a Public Health Expert frequently called upon to be on National TV, I was very impressed with this facility. I have stayed in much higher priced hotels that do not compare to how clean and customer friendly the White Rose is!

Room Tip: The filling Station makes homemade donuts, just get there early because they sell out quick!
