This hotel is in a prime spot. Easy on / off 81. Close to Hershey and Mechanicsburg. It's also the closest hotel to the Hollywood Casino.

The room was clean, a little small but ok. The pool had to much bleach. I had a really bad skin reaction after swimming 🏊‍♂️ for a couple minutes. The only thing I didn’t like it at all was the bed. It was really hard like you were sleeping on a rock 😄 beside that, everything was fine. Good service!

Checking was fast and easy, I received a paper with the times for breakfast and dinner. Our room was clean as far as you can see, but once you start to pay attention some of the little things, it really needed extra cleaning. The toilet was not scrubbed, there was a ring of dirt or whatever that was inside of it. The faucet was dirty , the carpet had a few stains on it and so did the ceiling in the front entrance. And the morning before for breakfast I was greeted by a spider at the door. And it wasn’t so small. At my arrival where breakfast was being served, no one greeted me and there were no signs that we needed to be seated, so my child and I walked in and began to serve ourselves, when we were approached by a young lady that worked there with a horrible attitude, asking us if we were seated by someone, when we replied no she then makes a very rude remark saying “so you just walk in then?”. I’ve never been spoken to by anyone at a place that I am paying for in that manner or embarrassed in front of other people in that manner. After that very rude encounter I was unable to enjoy my breakfast. Overall my stay was OK. My kids enjoyed the pool, that was the only highlight of my experience there. Next time I ever visit that area I will make sure to spend my money elsewhere.
