Simmons Motel and Suites built in 1957. Each property was purchased separately and modified into the motel. The motel has been owned and operated by the same family since 1957, we are a warm and friendly motel. While on your travels away from home and you do not need luxury then we are for you. When you come to Simmons it is like being home away from home.

We planned a day at Hershey Park and chose this place for the night before becausevof the proximity, low price and motor-era quaintness. It's definitely quaint and has an old-time charm. But the room was microscopic with poor HVAC and little space for luggage. The mattress was worn and saggy. The tiled bathroom was also quaint, but underlit and the shower had no sleves or nooks for soap and shampoo, so it had to sit on the floor. The room also was far from noise proof, so we heard everyone around us, including the staff talking loudly down the hall in the office. To be fair, the office staff members were pleasant and courteous and graciously didn't mind us running late checking out. There are fewer parking spots than rooms so I had to park down the street and walk back in the rain after unloading the car.

This place is awesome! It might be a bit older, but it is very well maintained, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. We booked here 2 weeks in a row because we were going to Hershey medical and it was great each time! It is literally 5 minutes away from everything Hershey.. I liked the previous review that said it's like staying at Grandma's house, he hit it perfectly right. You won't be disappointed.

From reviews I knew what to expect, a 1050’s hotel. That’s what it is, but it is clean well kept and on the Main Street in Hershey, about 1/2 mile from the park. If you went to grandmas in the 1970 or 80 this was her house, I loved it! There was Evan the above ground pool! There is a charcoal grill in the grass area you can bring charcoal and grill if you wish.It is not marble and gold but it is a great place for a non pretentious family to stay.

Very enjoyable. A home away from home. The beds were comfortable and clean, TV's in each room, and there was a mini fridge and microwave. Very relaxed setting, close to everything. Outdoor pool was very well maintained. Ample picnic and outdoor seating. Staff was very friendly.

We stayed at the Simmons motel for Memorial day weekend and enjoyed our stay. My kids and I loved how we were walking distance to Duck Donuts. Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean. It was cold and rainy so we did not get to enjoy the pool. They had a nice set up to grill and relax outside.

We have stayed at Simmons 4 times in the past 2 years and continue to go back again and again. Is it fancy? No, Is it clean? Yes! It is family owned and operated and it is like staying with family. We have actually stayed in the same room all 4 times and it has been clean and comfortable. We try to give business to family owned businesses instead of the big hotel chains and we found a gem here. This is very affordable, almost like stealing a good nights sleep from this family. The location is perfect to walk to restaurants and very close to Hershey attractions. What can I say, we like this mom and pop hotel. IF you have a board stuck in the wrong place...just keep driving, you won't get it anyway. We will be back! Thanks for saving my favorite pillow for me till I picked it up!

It's a short walk to shopping and dining. The bed was comfortable. The room was not very soundproof, I could hear conversations from other rooms. I would probably choose a different hotel the next time I am in Hershey.

This place is old. At least from the 1940's. We reserved a "suite" and got a regular old motel room with cobwebs on the walls and peeling paint. Not very well maintained. Also, nobody would clean the room while we were still checked in. No central air. Just a room a/c over the door. Best thing about it is the location. Very close to the park. You can see the roller coasters from the room. So, I guess it did what we needed it to do. A bed with a shower, a mini-fridge and a TV. Had to pay extra for Wifi. Bed was a little small for 2, and mattress was too firm for me.

This place had the worst customer service I have ever had in my life. The people that owned the motel were very disrespectful very racist and just downright impossible to be around. I got fussed out for asking for a hand towel a wash rag and for them to vacuum my room. If you stay here don't expect any customer service. Me and my husband will take our business elsewhere.

Response from Nathaniel Finkin, Guest Services / Front Office at Simmons Motel and Suites
Responded 11 Apr 2020
You were amongst our worst guests ever. All we asked is that you 1) pay your bill on time each day, 2) follow the rules, and 3) be civilized. You failed all three of those tasks. What motel lets guests have use of their housekeeping equipment such as vacuum cleaners? What motel is alright with guests staying past check out without paying their bill for the following day? What motel is alright with smoking in the room when there are numerous warnings and signs that make it abundantly clear that smoking in the room is prohibited? You were awful, which is why we kicked you out. Your poor attitude didn't even get you past the front desk of the hotel across the street, who wanted nothing to do with you. Stay out of Hershey; this place is far too good for you.
