This was one of our best stays at a hotel me and my family have ever had . Everything from the staff to the lobby to the rooms and the pool was perfect. And the restaurant that is on site was out of this world good ! We will definitely be back .

This is a great place to stay if your planning on spending your day at Hershey or even Lancaster. We definitely appreciated the complimentary 24/7 coffee! The elevators are fairly run down but that didn't impact our experience. Thanks for a good experience!

I LOVED everything about my four day stay at this hotel. Attention was made to every detail. It is clean and very well laid out. I was there for a dog show but that was not always apparent because the layout was so well organized,
