Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel clean and conveniently located to major attractions in Hershey area. Rooms nice, clean and roomy. Staff helpful and friendly. They have a nice, free breakfast to start you on your way. Only downside is there are no elevators. If you have health issues, request 1st floor accommodations. We would stay again.
