This was our second trip to the Simmons Motel. I guess its ok if you want inexpensive accommodations in Hershey, where a room at the Hershey Hotel can cost you north of $400 and a room at a mid-level chain like the Comfort Inn is $200 or more. The location is close to the park and right on Chocolate Avenue so you are not far from good local restaurants that are better than the chains. Try the Chocolate Avenue Grill, which is only a couple of blocks away. The rooms are very spartan. It's like staying at your Great Aunt's house. The one who still uses the same furniture and linens she bought in 1957. The bathroom has soap but no shampoo. Weird for a motel in today's day and age. The place is nothing fancy. I mean it, you cannot get less fancy than this place. The upside is that we were able to get a "suite" with three bedrooms for our party of seven and everyone had a place to sleep. The cost was just over $200, and two rooms at any other budget motel in Hershey would have cost us at least $300 but probably closer to $400 or more. So if you want to save money on the hotel and spend most of your time at the park or Chocolate World this is an ok choice. Just remember this is a no frills place.
