Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EMO474 You can fix this no matter what
Arrive at the Holiday Inn Express in a snowstorm. We chose this Hotel since it was close to a Gymnastics Meet my Daughter was competing in. The room was clean, however one we were situated, we noted the TV was not working, We checked with the desk and the clerk has no idea what she would do, however a maintenance man showed up within the hour and fixed the problem. Just before we left, the toilet wouldn't flush.. I assumed the chain became undone, but it's not up to me to fix the toilet and we were just about to leave for the meet, no time to potentially get dirty! When we got back around 10 PM, the toilet was fixed and we all took baths for the night.. the problem was the water was barely room temperature, but I dismissed it as maybe everyone was cashing in for the night and the hot water was at a premium. Next morning, the toilet is not flushing properly and is overflowing.Then I find out that there is no hot water at all.. and I mean the water is as cold as cold can get! We are about 45 minutes before we are scheduled to leave and my family is taking basically a bird bath in ice cold water. Upon presenting this issue as the desk, the person behind me was echoing the same problem. Basically, at this point, you can't fix this.. we're not going to try and find hot water, the whole stay had bumps and issues that just ruined our stay.

We stayed there due to a winter storm and were surprised at how comfortable it was. Convenient to Hersheypark and Chocolate World, as well as restaurants and shopping. Next time we are planning on spending the night in Hershey we will be staying here.

We visited Hershey Park with our grandchildren and stayed at this hotel the first time and enjoyed it immensely. The pool was private, clean as was the whole area. Breakfast was good, I even liked the coffee. We had a nice time and would go back next year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldcars Best Breakfast Room Staff In The Brand!
We've stayed at this H.I.E. every year since it opened and after last year's only fair experience, everything seems improved. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The ladies who take care of the breakfast room are the best. Food was always replenished on a timely basis and everything was neat and CLEAN. Cheryl should be the breakfast room trainer for all H.I.E. locations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by accfib Owner needs to pay more attention
Hi- I have stayed at your location 6 to10 times a year for the last 5 years or so. But I noticed on my last stay a few items that are concerning. Most of the furniture and carpet in the lobby and breakfast area are looking old and outdated. When riding the elevator up and down to my 3rd floor room I noticed all edges and wall corners is dusty and not been cleaned in some time. And lastly over my two days on the property I noticed staff and local management all outside smoking on several occasions. If there is that much time to be outside smoking then there could be more focus on making sure all is clean and proper looking facility.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cxaxrxoxl Need to replace bed and pool was not clean
My kids were looking forward to using the indoor pool but when we checked in; I noticed the pool was dirty. The filter was not running to circulate the water and since it wasn't on I can see right to the bottom of the pool and saw it was dirty on the bottom (looked like actual dirt/debris). My husband and I stayed in room 217 and the bed closest to the window needs to be replaced. You felt actual springs in the mattress. We will definitely visit Hershey Park next year but will not be staying at this Holiday Inn.

We are repeat customers to this hotel (4 years ago) and are just as impressed. Everything you need is within a mile. Very family oriented.
Had a plugged toilet and the staff handed my husband a plunger. Problem solved.
Hope to be back BEFORE another 4 years!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerzieGirl214 Ideal place to stay very close to Hershey Park
Holiday Inn Express was very reasonable compared to other hotels around the area. Set off on a side road, not on the Highway, tucked back behind a bank. Its with in minutes of all Hershey attractions and fast food McDonalds, Wendy's, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut (I think) and fuel right all outside of the entrance! Minutes from Indian echo Caverns a must see while in Hershey!
Very clean, no smell of cigarette smoke! Rooms were very quiet and you didn't here any neighboring noise. Heated indoor pool was small but children loved it! A very nice clean place to rest after your adventures in the Hershey area. Staff was pleasant. Would stay here again and definitely recommend to anyone just needing a place to stay for a day or to to rest in between days! :-

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BMore4 Enjoyed the stay and convenience
During the 3rd week in August my family which includes my wife and two sons who are 18 and 9 decided to spend the day at Hershey Park. As part of our visit we decided to stay over night near the park rather than drive back home after a tiring day at the park. The Holiday Inn Express was convenient to our route of travel as it was just off of the main road leading to the park and only a few minutes away. The room was clean and comfortable and the two queen beds were a perfect fit for my family. We had a restful night sleep and woke up to a tasty breakfast of eggs, bacon, pancakes and coffee. We found checking in and checking out to be effortless. the stay was satisfying and met our needs.

holiday inn express is suposed to be a short stay with minimal emenities. This holiday is excellent from the front desk to the people that clean the rooms. Everyone greats you with a smile and is very pleasent. The rooms are what you would expect from an express. At this price range you cant go wrong. the only negative were; wish they had a bar and an outside pool

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HootiePie Not the Sweetest Place on Earth
Came to Hershey to celebrate both my children's birthdays by taking them to Hershey Park, the sweetest place on earth. The location of the Hotel was excellent in relationship to the Park. We arrived early and immediately went to the hotel to see if they could check us in. This was around noon. Per the IHG membership we are supposed to be offered the opportunity to check in early if available. They said they did not have any rooms ready. We decided to try and find something to do while the room was being prepared and asked for a phone call when the room was ready. We came back around 2:20pm. Check in was 3pm. When we returned a couple was being checked in, yet we never received the courtesy of a call to let us know we could check in. Wondering how may others got in before we did. This is the first hotel I have not been able to check in early. The hotel indoor pool was very noisy. When a large family entered, the area was at capacity and the decibel level was so high we felt the need to leave the area. The room was very small and cramped. The bathroom was the smallest of any HI I have ever stayed at. The staff also was the most unfriendly group of hotel staff I have ever encountered. If you work in hospitality services you should at least try to put on a smile once in awhile and treat the guests like you value our business. If I had a question, I got the impression I was bothering them. Without guests you don't have a job. I could go on, but I think I have made my point. Will not be returning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GoingGrannie Happy experience
I brought my son and two granddaughters to Hershey so they could visit the Park. I chose this hotel because it had good reviews and was close to the Park entrance. After riding around town I discovered that this hotel is probably the closest one to the Park entrance and it was really easy to get to the Park.
There are are several eating places within walking distance from the hotel, which was a plus. I was surprised by the variety of breakfast foods offered at the hotel, and they were all tasty. The hotel also has coffee and tea available all day, and a bowl of apples beckoned from the sideboard.
I was delighted by the comfort of the beds, soft (but not too soft) mattresses, and a soft plus a firm pillow for each person. The hotel and parking lot were very clean, as were the pool and hot tub. Everything necessary was provided.
The staff were all friendly and helpful.
Other reviewers mentioned a train and smoke from the campground nearby. We saw and heard the train but it didn't bother us at all, in fact the kids were excited to see it. It wasn't noisy enough to wake me up, which was all I cared about. We did get smoke from the campground one night but it was gone the next day.
I can heartily recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roscon Great Location, close to Hershey Park
Minutes from Hershey Park, Chocolate World and Hershey Gardens. Walking distance to lots of fast food like Taco Bell, Wendys, Pizza Hut, Red Robin, and KFC. This was very helpful having 2 children who like different things to eat.
Room was spotless, and had a mini fridge, microwave, iron and board, hair dryer and coffee maker. All came in handy. There is a small indoor pool but it was crowded when we tried to use it and the water was not clear. Breakfast buffet was great. Lots of choices and plenty of them. The breakfast area was small and crowded but I have found that in many places that offer complimentary breakfast. My advice is Go Early, beat the crowd. I would definitely stay here again and would recomend it to families looking for a good value for their money.

The room was perfect for our weekend tournament trip to Hershey. Close to the fields and the park, as well as local restaurants. Beds were amazingly comfortable and hotel was quiet given how many teams were staying there. Breakfast offered something for everyone...including one very picky eater.
Will recommend this location to others.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MIKE911 room smelled and could feel bed springs.
Found this hotel way over priced for what it offered, the room had a very musty smell and the beds were very uncomfortable and you cound feel the springs poking your back. The pool was the size of a large bath tub and the so called fitness room was down a flight of a stairs in a small non-air conditioned room, which only offered 3 pieces of equipment. The gym was really a large closet in the basement. I thought the hotel would be a good value if it cost around 70.00 dollars a night and not the amount of money i paid..... The staff was nice and the breakfast very good.....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jwenner Good location, too many kids running up and down the first floor hall screaming on Friday night
On that first night (Friday night), we stayed on the first floor and there were too many kids running up and down the halls screaming. We told them to stop several times and even called the front desk to ask the Manager to do something, but nothing was done, except that one of those kids had the nerve to steal our "do not disturb" sign off our door that night. I was very disappointed that the Friday night manager did nothing to solve the problem. :(
Other than that first night, the hotel was nice and very close to the Hershey Park attractions. Breakfast was great.
If we were to ever go to Hershey again, I would stay there, but just make sure to get a room on the very top floor away from the extremely noisy first floor.
