DONT BELIEVE THE PICTURES ONLINE!

Posted Aug 31, 2015
The hotel is small and dirty. the pictures on line are not truthful. the room is so small that when you open the drawer to the dresser it hits the end of the bed. the mattress is soft and lumpy. the room is dirty, rug dirty, rusted lamps, chairs from the 1960s what a horrible experience.

Best reasonably priced hotel close to Hersheypark

Posted Aug 8, 2015
The rooms are small, but if you are looking to visit Hersheypark and Chocolate World for a day or two, this is the best place to stay at a reasonable price.

Howard Johnson's is not the same as it used to be.

Pros: Not much. It was someplace to sleep for one night. Any more than one night, my family would have left upon arrival.
Cons: Just about everything. The hotel needs to be upgraded.
Location: Hershey Park is always fun! We will certainly be returning with our children and grandchildren but we will be staying somewhere else.
Dirty carpet, dirty bathroom - used shampoo left on top of shower stall, shower floor was dirty, bathroom floor was dirty - OVERALL CLEANLINESS _ GROSS!!!!! Glad I brought extra socks to wear - did not want my feet to touch the floor. Bed was horrible. ROOM NEEDS SERIOUS UPGRADE - WE ARE NOT IN THE 1970's. Could not even be bothered to pull weeds from the cracks in the concrete walkways. Air conditioning set at 60 degrees did not cool room. Pool looked clean but we did not use it because the people using the pool were much too rowdy for my 7 year old - no supervision at the pool at all. The complimentary breakfast was not good. When serving trays and utensils are NOT CLEAN, how can you enjoy breakfast.

Pros: It was close to Hershey Park
The room smelled a bit musty although it was otherwise clean enough.
