The hotel was clean and the bed was really nice. Rooms seem to have sound proofing....didnt hear a thing and it is really close to 81.
Downside was no pool or anything to entertain in the evening.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
Stayed here 3 nights during the week with my husband and in-laws in 2 seperate rooms to visit family nearby. Found the best deal at $111 per night for 2 queen beds through Expedia. The hotel was easy to find - right on exit 100 off 81. Our rooms were on the second floor. Everything looked new and fresh, our room was clean and cool. The beds were comfy - all but one pillow were feather pillows. We brought our own and used some of theirs. I had to kill a spider crawling on the wall. We could definitely hear the highway - staying on the north side of the hotel anyway. Also, our room included a flat screen 32" TV, small microwave and mini-fridge. The fridge made a terrible grinding sound every so often that bothered me as a light-sleeper. Also, they only have about 20 channels in standard definition... thumbs down on that. Free wireless internet (code given on the back of your key card envelope) worked well. Breakfast was good! Every morning included various coffee - very good (regular, decaf, bold, hot water) tea/hot chocolate packets, orange juice, apple juice, oatmeal, cheerios, raisin brand, frosted flakes, waffle makers, toast, muffins (blue berry, banana-nut, chocolate) bread, plain and raisin bagels, pastries, apples (small not very ripe), skim milk, 2% milk, butter, jam, syrup and there was a hot dish that alternated between sausage slices, french toast sticks, home fries, scrambled eggs, eggs and ham, also alternations between fruit (grapefruit and orange slices, pineapple, and grapes) and yogurt (various yoplait). There was a nice big seating area right in front of the front desk and a large flat screen TV to watch while you ate. I believe they also offered to-go bags for breakfast - and cups for coffee or drinks. The lady attending to the breakfast area brought us more coffee each morning - she was very nice! We tried the pool out one afternoon - looked clean, but it is not heated, it was very cold. It went up to 5ft deep. The work out room had one treadmill, one elliptical, and one bike - didn't use this. The business/office area looked nice - didn't use this either. Our room was cleaned each day - although we declined once as we slept late and didn't need any new items. The shower was nice with good water pressure. There is a coffee-pot in room - in the bathroom actually. As far as what's around the area - there is a Pilot station right across the street (lots of truckers) with a DQ and a subway and a little "Diner" restaurant next to that that served beer. We ate there - it was a little pricey - the food was good and the service was terrible - waitresses clearly wanted to serve the truckers before the families in the booth. A small piece of pie was 2.79. All in all, it was a nice stay, clean, a little loud, with a great breakfast.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights around a trip to HersheyPark etc. It is about 30 minute drive to Hershey but was priced under the hotels in Hershey so well worth it. Hotel and rooms very clean, beds very comfortable and free breakfast good with a variety each morning.
The only complaint we have was with the man (don't remember his name) behind the check-in counter. He was strange and made you feel unwelcome and weird for wanting to stay in such a remote location with "one restaurant" nearby...and that one was not the diner across the street which he seemed to have a personal vendetta against. He oddly added that there is a Applebees in Harrisburg "but that is 45 minutes away"....what???
Anyway, we found a couple of decent places to eat in Pine Grove while there and enjoyed our stay
This was a great place to stay by Hershey, Pennsylvania. The staff is very friendly and pleasant,also good with children The room we stayed in had two queen sized beds(very comfy and firm) and a nice bathroom(supplied with lots of towels), that was very clean and tidy. It also had a refrigerator with a freezer, good for keeping sacks or maybe leftovers cold. This room was welled priced for its cleanliness and value.If you had a room facing the back of the hotel, you can see the beautiful mountains. The pool is very nice, and the water is cool and relaxing for a hot summer day or a day of driving on the highway or the Pennisilvania turnpike. Also it had a nice, connecting patio to it for adults to sociaize. The vending machines have many snacks in them with a cheap cost, but there is not many usual favorite choices in them. The breakfast was basic but good, with a waffle maker. This would be a place I would stay again if I'm in that area.
I stayed here for two nights recently. I had a King room on the 2nd floor on the highway side of the hotel, and unlike a previous poster, I didn’t think the highway noise was noticeable. The room itself was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with a mini fridge and microwave. The lighting was excellent, and the high-speed wireless really was high-speed.
The breakfast provided many choices – cereals both hot and cold, fruit, ham and eggs with home fries one morning, cheese omelets and bacon the next, make-your-own waffles with butter, margarine, and syrup, breakfast breads (like bagels and English muffins), yogurt, choice of juices, etc., and is open from 6 to 10 a.m. The breakfast area is clean and cheerful, and the staff kept it up very well.
There’s a truck stop across the highway with a convenience store, Subway, and Dairy Queen tucked inside, and next to that is a modern diner (called The Diner) decked out in ‘50’s style décor. Excellent food, good choices for all meals.
Being just off I-81 meant highway access to Harrisburg and Hershey was very convenient. All the staff that I encountered was friendly, cheerful, and efficient. I would stay here again.
My family (two adults, 1 teenager) stayed at this location for one night. Our room had two queen beds, a microwave and a mini-fridge. It was the standard Hampton Inn room. The room and bathroom were clean. The beds are very soft and the pillows are terrible. The hotel is right off of I-81 and you can easily hear the highway traffic in your room. However, once we turned on the air conditioner, the noise was drowned out. There are no restaurants or stores in the immediate area. There is an indoor pool but we arrived too late to use it. Breakfast is the regular cold/hot cereal, yogurt, muffins and make-your-own waffles. The breakfast area was fairly busy and the hotel should purchase another waffle maker. Also, the maple syrup was so watered down, it ruined the waffle. $117 is a bit pricey but this seems to be the norm for the area. Overall, our stay was fine for one night.
