We had 85 members of our family and wedding party at the Holiday Inn Express in Elizabethtown, PA the weekend of August 6th. The facilities were wonderful, and the hotel rooms are very spacious. We found the hotel to be immaculately clean and well kept. This little hotel is in a beautiful location near Hershey, Elizabethtown College, and Lancaster. We...

The hotel had a clean appearance but it had a horrible musty smell. This hotel poorly represents the HIE brand. I would not stay here again. A return visit to Hershey Park would result in hotel reservations closer to the park and a rejection of accommodations that smelled of mildew/ must.

Our GPS took us through the scenic route coming from Virginia Beach, I thought we would never find the hotel. We drove through the country up and down hills. Beautiful Amish country and farm lands. Then we arrived and we were all pleased with the outside look of the hotel. It felt homely and receptionist was very friendly. The rooms...

Visiting Hershey Park for the first time - enjoyed the day even with the rain - but by the end of day we were exhausted. The Holiday Inn Express in Elizabethtown provided the perfect nights stay for us. Very clearn & comfortable - with breakfast in the morning to get us fortified for the ride home. Great Hotel!

Let's start by saying that I was staying at HIE Elizabethtown to go to Hershey with my family. We checked in... Completely smooth process and when we got to our room we heard a dog barking next door. We returned to the front desk to request a room change. Immediately, Hunter, moved us upstairs to a triple suite. We were...

This is a very clean and comfortable hotel. The beds and pillows were very clean and inviting. There were many hot and cold breakfast options. Better than all of this, the staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The hotel was very quiet giving us a good night's rest. Everything I asked was pleasantly delivered. The location to local shopping...

We arrived here late and were greeted with a smile and a very helpful concierge! Our room was nice and even had a mini refrigerator- which was a happy surprise for us!

Stayed here for business in April 2016. The hotel was convenient for an overnight stay, however I don't think it meets the quality standard of a Holiday Inn. Cons - The hotel is outdated. Could use new furniture, alarm clocks, decor, bathrooms, etc. Shower head was dirty, found hair in the sheets and towels. Vending machines were out of order....
