                  Our room was very comfortable and clean. We had a room with two queen beds, refrigerator and microwave. WiFi was available free too. We had a basic breakfast included in the morning. Nice selection of items such as cereal, bananas, yogart, donuts, juice and coffee. A restaurant is also available on site. They also have a very nice pool area with a patio. Of course we could not use the pool as it was outdoors and we visited in the month of October. We will stay at this hotel again as we were pleased with our expereince. Great place to stay if your going to Hershey park.

                  Only downside to our room was that we were in a room close to the road which is 422 and very busy, therefore traffic noise was apparent. However, you could always request a room in the back away from the traffic noise.

                  Staff outstanding & great to work with you re: special needs/requests.Stay here for largest antique auto event in nation and no price gouging.

                  Nothing, do very well with real estate available.

                  The motel is old and so on arrival asked to see our room. What a pleasant surprise the room was beautiful and obviously had recent renovations. As had the whole inside of the motel had all been redone. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Parking was good and it was very quiet. The restaurant was gourmet and reasonable

                  The only complain was maintaining connection with the internet. They seem to be constantly changing the entry code. They had slips at the desk how to connect , which worked fine but did not last If you left the computer for any length of time. I finally realized that each slip had a different enry number. So I just took 5 slips so atleast I had them in the room when I wanted them

                  That room eas horrible for a $100 a night it was too small, cramped, not so clean. Overall experience of Howard Johnson was HORRIBLE!!! Never again!! We should be refunded $ you couldn't pay me enough to stay at a ho Jo again. I will file a complaint with BBB when we get home.

                  The location was awesome in relation to Hershey Park and Chocolate world.

                  I liked that the room was very clean. I also liked how close it was to Hershey park.

                  The only thing I can say is that the walls were paper thin. You can hear everything that was going on in the other room.

                  Location

                  Motel nothing like photos on your site. Flies in room at all times,fleas, we were suppose to have so we thought a seperate sitting area with couch. Very disappointed.....

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  It was quiet and close to the park. It met our needs for a few nights.

                  The room was a little small, especially the bathroom.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  Location was convenient to Hershey Park (our destination) and because it was summertime was able to enjoy the outdoor pool area. The room had everything that you needed,e.g. small frig, microwave, coffee pot, etc. but space was tight because of all the amenities. Perfect for short stay because you're not in the room that long.

                  A little dated furniture-wise and missed spots during the cleaning routine. Saw a cobb-web or two! These things definitely could be corrected.

                  The beds were comfortable.

                  The internet was terribly slow and the breakfast could've been better. I would've liked more pillows.
