Check in was a breeze and they even gave us Hershey bard as a welcome gift. I booked through Expedia and requested a balcony, but didn't get it. No big deal. The room...

We were impressed with checking in and seeing the Hershey themed lobby and receiving the Hershey bar. We also enjoyed the indoor pool, the restaurant on site,...

This is the best hotel we've ever stayed at! We couldn't be happier with our stay here. In fact, we are planning on staying here again on our way back from NC to NH. Great room, food, pool, and game room!!! No complaints at all. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
