Howard Johnson Inn Hershey
Ranked #13 of 25 Hotels in Hershey
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night and will not stay here again. Several reasons why for one when we got to our room it smelled awful. Yes the hotel needs some work but I have stayed in older hotels and they were clean. Also noticed the cover on our bed had spots on it not sure what it was but you could tell it had not been cleaned in awhile. Dried crusty stuff disgusting!!!
Let's move on to breakfast. Food was nothing to fancy. Everything was almost empty and it was only 9am.
When we went to check out we noticed the girls that were at the front desk also was the ones cleaning rooms too. So with that said when I told the girls at the front desk about the room and what we found they acted surprised and said they would tell management. Not so sure they will tell on themselves.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Hershey Park. The only complaint I have is that our toilet would run at least 3 times an hour for 5 seconds. I was hard to sleep with the noise. Other than that it fine. It's nothing fancy, but it served it's purpose.

This Howard Johnson is truly a hidden gem in a town with lots of overpriced hotels. This really is the best place for the value. The rooms are a great size with nice beds. The bathroom was very clean and well stocked with towels and those mini soaps and shampoos everyone loves so much. The continental breakfast is your standard one with cereal, muffins, bagels, yogurt, etc. The best part by far was the exceptional customer service given by the general manager, Larry Shaikh. I work with a not for profit children's theatre, and he made sure we were comfortable after a long day of performing and driving. Since I travel a lot with my job, it was refreshing to interact with such a friendly manager. If you're coming to Hershey for the attractions, he's also a great resource to help you find what you need!

My trip here was great. Stayed here in 2013 for a few days and loved the room I was put in. My father is from Vienna, Austria and he really enjoyed the room as well. Latif Shaikh (Larry) the General Manager was very cooperative with us in getting our rooms straightened out. The service here is overall really amazing and they meet your needs.

Room Tip: When you come, ask for a room that is on the top floor with a balcony. It emits more sunlight in th...

The room itself was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The only thing I was disappointed with was that there was nobody at the front desk to assist us with check-in and check-out. We had to pick up the phone and call someone to come assist us.

We, 2 adults and 4 teens, stayed here for a concert on New Years Eve.Thank God it wasn't far from the venue! We stayed here for one night and it was great. We stayed in two rooms, both directly from each other. Our first thoughts of the rooms were beautiful. The mirror next to the door was a nice touch. Though, we thought the fridge would have been a bit larger, but what are you gonna do?! The pool area seemed to be acceptable- it was closed off due to the cold weather. There is a 2 way street in front of the hotel, which doesn't affect much. We were not able to explore the hotel much- only prone to stay one night. We went down the street to a restaurant for dinner before the concert. We came back to the hotel around 1am. All of us that went to the concert-one adult and 3 teens- felt very lethargic afterwards. The flat screen tv mounted on the wall really helped! The sliding doors could have been cleaned a bit better, but again, it could have been because of the weather. The restrooms were an average size. They supply the typical: soap, conditioner, and shampoo, towels, ect. Honestly, if you plan on traveling here, I'd bring my own toiletries- they run out quick if you have the same amount of people going together. Other than that, it was terrific! Definitely would go back again! A very great stay!
