“Rooms were small”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Overall the staff were very accommodating. The breakfast was as expected. The room; however, was much smaller then expected and entry was from the parking lot which was not relayed through the site. We moved the bed just to make room to sit and found that they had not vacuumed under it. We were willing to upgrade to a bigger room but none were available. The attached restaurant (What if) was excellent. The happy hour prices were reasonable and the food was excellent.

Room Tip: Pick a room with more then one bed if you want a bigger room. We chose one bed to be fair to other...

What a nice surprise! We came down for a girl's getaway. We spent the day at the Hershey Spa, and found this hotel minutes away...it had a remarkably low price, but felt like a 5 star hotel! Would recommend it highly!!!!!!!

My daughter and I stayed here 1 night 1/14/12 and it was great! Sooooo much better than the Super 8 Carlise we stayed the night before. Super clean, nice size TV on wall, 2 bathroom sinks, comfortable bed and clean bedding. Unlike the hotel the night before, the room temp was cozy and fridge was cold. It had a nice sliding door to sit on the patio, but was way to cold to try out. The What If restaurant appeared to have a nice menu, but we ate in using the clean microwave. The breakfast was adequate. Tables a little too close for comfort, but ok. I will definately be back again and HoJo is ranked high on my hotel list now.

My family and I stayed here 1 night on 1/8/2012 and the stay was great. We had a deluxe room with 2 queen beds. The room was clean and comfortable. The general manager had checked me in and I found him to be very friendly and helpful. Our deluxe room had newer pillow top mattresses and they were great. This bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in and it made for a great night sleep. The 37 inch flat screen TV in the room was also a nice. There were quite a few channels to chose from. The breakfast was a adequate. Items were juice, coffee, tea, bagels, toast, donuts, danish, hot/cold cereal, yogurt, and bananas. Just enough to start the day. I don't ever recall staying at a Howard Johnson's before but I think I found a new brand. I'm very impressed with this little Inn and I will stay here again when I'm in the Hershey area. Bottom line: Friendly/Helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms, and exceptional value.
