We have stayed at various hotels in and around Hershey including the Hershey Lodge and Country Inn and Suites and others on the east side of Harrisburg (Holiday inn, Courtyard, Residence inn) and found this hotel to be the nicest around for the price. Of course, February is off season so the prices and occupancy were low.
We got a great rate for a Thursday night on a 2Q + sofa suite. The room was very spacious considrting there were 2 adults and 2 teen boys. Two TV's kept everyone from arguing about what to watch. The room even had a microwave and frig. Bathroom was roomy, too.
The hotel is less than a year old and still looks very clean and new. It is located on a side street of Chocolate Ave (behind a Staples plaza). The fron desk told us there were no rooms with views of Hershey Park. We looked out over the back of the Staples plaza and were on the 3rd floor.
I only had 2 minor complaints. One was that the booth I sat in for breakfast was very uncomfortable maybe due to excess use? The other was the "Canadian bacon" served for breakfast. It wasn't round but looked like a very dark version of std bacon. It also had zero taste. Not sure what was wrong with it. The other option was scrambled eggs which were OK. i did like the fact that they had 24 hour coffee and tea service. They are one of the few places which offer tea besides the generic orange pekoe. They had several options of Bigelow incl my favorites Earl Gray & English breakfast.
I would definitely look at this hotel if I return to Hershey. I would imagine it is very busy in the season since the rooms can hold up to 5 persons and there's free breakfast. In my experience that will mean a really crowded hotel. But for the off sean, it is a nice quiet option.
