I stayed here for 4 nights for business. After driving 2.5 hrs in the rain, I welcomed the warm comfortable bed, free wi-fi, and fluffy pillows & comforter. The staff was friendly and very helpful ready to make accommodations as necessary. Free continental breakfast every morning from 6A-9A. The 'Jamaican Me Crazy' coffee was fresh, hot, and delicious and readily available. Their automatic pancake maker was the envy of our group - I've got to find one of those things for home. :O) There are restaurants and shopping in the immediate vicinity and more malls 15-20 minutes away. Hershey Park is approx. 30 mins away, although I didn't stop there, I did go to the Hershey Outlet Mall (not a great selection, you'll have better luck at the Burlington Coat Factory down the road from the hotel). Other perks: free parking, access to 2 computers with free printing in the lobby, a microwave in the lobby, knowledgeable staff, free washing machine and dryer access.
Yes, when I first entered the room I smelled stale smoke, but having read other reviews I knew that this may be problematic and brought a plug-in room freshener (Glade, Bath & Body Works, etc) with me. The room could use slight remodeling/touch-ups. There were cracks in the shower stall, trim that needed to be painted, the room key didn't work the first time - kinda had to keep swiping it before it worked (small things). The first night, the housekeeper didn't vacuum, but after that no issues with cleanliness. The gym is kinda small, but it serves its purpose. The pool was closed (LOL) Oh yeah, and the exhaust fan in the bathroom is noisy. After a while it's annoying, but only if you're the type of person that gets annoyed after awhile. :O)
