The hotel is off Interstate 81 behind a gas station. Our GPS for some reason could not find it, and got us off the wrong end of Linglestown Road. When we called the hotel to get directions, nobody answered and we thought, "Oh oh, something's happened and it's closed". We went back on 81 and got off the right exit,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 September 2016

Every August, I take my son to Hershey Park. A 10-minute drive from the park gets us a clean room for literally half the price of a hotel in Hershey proper. We have been staying here for the past three or four years (the desk clerk recognized us the last time we checked in). The staff is always friendly and...

This motel is right off the highway so easy entry in the morning. Very nice clean room, quality shower and the TV was newer. I would recommend this motel for any travellers going through this area. Excellent price with coupon.

Perfect for a short stay and 16 minutes to Hershey Chocolate World/Giant Center. The hotel is dated, but the room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. There is a continental breakfast that had donuts, bagels, cereal, yogurt, waffles and hot/cold beverages. There was a very large stain on the ceiling and...

I am a stickler for certain things in hotels. I stayed here last minute for military travel. It's a little dated. The lobby/hallways especially BUT the room was much better than expected. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft and super clean! The room was a good size as well. It had a goofy large round shower which...

Fine for a short stay. Convenient to Interstate 81. Clean room and comfortable bed. Yes you could hear highway noise but that is to be expected in any hotel by an interstate. Large comfortable shower. Comfortable bed. My only complaint would be that the room temperature was very difficult to control. Typical continental breakfast was adequate. Would stay again.

Good location, great shopping, 7.9 miles 18 min to park. As cheap as you can get it and as close to the park for that price. Rooms are clean GPS states Howard Johnson so I assume that is what it was before Econo lodge changed name.

Just minutes from downtown Hershey where you can enjoy Hershey Park, The Chocolate World and the museum. The hotel is nothing fancy, a little old but on a quiet street and pretty low key. Very nice hotel associates made it a great stay.

I am a diamond member of Choice Hotels and usually stay at Comfort Suites. Due to some recent reviews at the local Comfort Suites we decided to check out the Econo Lodge as it looked pleasant from the outside. The four things that are most important to me as a business traveler is that the internet has to work efficiently,...

A friend and I stayed for a concert at Hershey Park. We had low expectations,but were pleasantly surprised. The lobby seemed recently remodeled and offered a great first impression. The room was large and very spacious. The AC worked well, and the room was clean. I would recommend for anyone on a budget. The hotel was also right off the...
