“awesome location if you're going to Hershey Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

We stayed here this past weekend for the JT & Jay-z concert at Hershey Stadium and stayed here for 2 nights. Check in is easy and we were allowed to put in items that needed to be in the fridge even while the housekeeper is still cleaning the room. We stayed at apartment 8 which accommodated all 8 of us ( we brought a separate blow up bed). The apartment is very cozy and clean and they provided extra blankets upon our request. Hershey Park,Hershey Factory and the Stadium was all walking distance as promised. The hotel is also walking distance to rite-aid and other restaurants.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

The Simmons Motel provides basic, no frills lodging at an economical price (given the area). The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room (#4) that I had was clean and for the most part comfortable. Some basic amenities that I have come to expect were not available in my room (hair dryer, iron, ironing board, shampoo/conditioner and only one bar of soap the first night), so pack those things if you think you will need them. They may have been available from the office - I didn't ask. No in room coffee maker, but coffee was available in the office. Furnishing and decor are dated, but functional. TV was new. In-room refrigerator and microwave were nice touches. Bathroom was small. Linens were plentiful. Sink is in the bathroom (no vanity outside of bathroom, but the dresser had a mirror, chair and outlets were close by). We could walk to Hershey Park entrance (about 15 minutes); a Rite Aide is virtually next door; and a few restaurants were also in walking distance. Given the traffic - this is a plus - not to have to move your car. There is an above ground pool available - we didn't get to use it - looked clean and nice, though. All in all a pleasant stay - just keep your expectations at an appropriate level.

I booked on line. So was not expecting such an old room. But it was lovely and clean.
No breakfast and hard to get onto WIFI might as well say no WIFI.
But the bed was fine and we were given the suite which I think meant that we had a table and chairs outside our room.
We were quite happy here however as we need WIFI for business we will not stay again.

Our school went on an honors trip to Philadelphia/Hershey Park. The suites were very accommodating since there were 44 students grades 3-12 and 10 chaperones. Rooms were nice and clean. Would definitely stay there again if in the area. Thank you for making our stay a good one!

Room Tip: We were in room 6

You can tell by prior responses that this manager is a jerk. We stayed last summer, which I'm sure he'll comment on why I waited so long to post ( I just joined trip advisor). They gave us the wrong room so our kids had to sleep on the floor. I spoke to the manager who was so rude and sleezy that i felt like i needed a shower after. He took no responsibility for screwing up our room - he blamed Expedia! The decor is tacky fake flowers from the 80s. The couches were filthy and the place was smelly. The one and only thing they have going for them is their proximity to Hershey.

My family has stayed 2 times prior at this location , all I can say is that this is the most non- commercialized place to stay. Where else can you cook on a small grill on the front lawn and enjoy the company of someone that tries to improve what is there. Many updates as the last time we stayed in labor day weekend 2012. Plan to be back in 2013 , and can only say thank you to whitney , as he is as down to earth as anyone I know. Worth the trip from Albany, NY.

Room Tip: It doesnt have to be the marriot to enjoy your stay.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

I have stayed here 4-5 times going as far back as the 80's and have always had a good experience. All the rooms are a little different with homey touches. Not fancy, you get what you pay for. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The property is spread over different bulidings that make for some unusual rooms. I once had a room that I entered via a sliding patio door, but I loved it. You will not have a big flat-screen, a free breakfast or a lot of in-room amenities. If you need the generic quality of a chain hotel, go across the street to the Days Inn.

And regarding Marie M's review: I'm not buying her story about the dog. The motel clearly has a No Pets policy with signs in the lobby. The fact that she admits leaving the dog unattended in the room to annoy other guests, shows that she is inconsiderate. They should have charged her the full $100 penalty. Just like smokers who feel they have a right to smoke in non-smoking rooms, dog owners who sneak Fido into a No Pets hotel are the ones who are VERY RUDE!
