Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LL12 Great bed and pillows, lousy breakfast
The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the rooms were clean. They are stingy with the towels, gave us 3 when there were 4 people staying in our room. Desk staff was annoyed when we asked for more. It wasn't just our room either, friends we were with had the same expericence.
The breakfast was the epitomy of your prepackage American processed food. Only fruit available were apples and bananas. Did have Chobani yogurt, which saved my diet. I would like more healthy, less processed options in the future, but I guess you get what you pay for, which is nothing.
In the future I wouldn't put free breakfast on my list of "must have" when comparing the price to a hotel that does not offer free breakfast. I'd rather pack my own cooler.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Missy1170 I would not recommend to anyone.
Pool: Could not see the bottom. Water was murky, and we would not even let our kids go in.
Room: Crowded, Dusty
Breakfast: Free - So we got what we paid for...belly aches.
Elevator: Dirty and musty smelling.
Service: Called to let them know the toilet was stuffed - they showed up and HANDED ME A PLUNGER to DO IT MYSELF! Then asked me to bring it back down to the front desk!
I asked the cleaning staff for fresh towels, and they told me they ran out. A few minutes later they handed me some they had "found" and explained that they searched through recently vacated rooms and brought me some that guests who had checked out had not use - HOW DO THEY KNOW THEY WERE NOT USED?
Thanks but no thanks.
Other than the proximity to the park and the surrounding area, I would not recommend to anyone else and will think twice about staying at any other of this brand of hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DitryandSmokey Smoke from the campsite and dirty
usually stay at the hotel across the street which is 50 times nicer. if i was to narrow it down to the two items i was unhappiest with, (1) there is a campsite immediately next to the hotel where they lite fires...the smell is pretty strong and it comes into the hotel. If you have asthma or sensitivity to these things dont even think about staying here. (2) the room was not incredibly clean, worst of all the bathroom towels were dirty / not clean. I did not notice it until after both my child and myself used them. They had spots and someone elses hair on them. We were not the only people complaining about this. The room was almost 200.00 a night. For that price this hotel is absolutely not worth it. It is a 100.00 a night room at best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tms1 I'd recommend for park goers
The room was spacious, clean, had a big fridge with freezer, nice tv and was in good condition. My AC did not work as well as it did in my adjoining room; which was much cooler. My shower needed a refacing or new grout bc there was a lot of mildew or something gross on the wall tiles. Again, not in my adjoining room. I did not complain to the staff bc i only was staying one night. So I had one perfect room and one good room with two annoyances. But overall, everything was fine. Breakfast had plenty of options both healthy or indulgent. My only complaint was the one fresh fruit during summer was bananas and he one we peeled was brown/mushy on the inside. The hotel was really close to Hershey Park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by elliec2014 too few tv channels
Wish they had more channels for selection other than that we would definitely go back if we were in that area again...very close to the park lots of places to go eat, get gas, convenience stores etc.

This property is close to Hershey attractions and to the city. As former Hershey, Pa., residents, we will be staying here during our next visit to town.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dawntreader You're Loosing Your Shine...
I travel extensively and have come to rely on HI Exp as my hotel of choice. So, when the time came for the family and I to enjoy Hershey's amusements we naturally chose to stay at the local HI Express. It was my experience that this location is not up to par with the others I've frequented. Please know - the staff is friendly... but the hotel seems to be tired and loosing it's shine.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NYMomof3 Okay overall but crowded breakfast area
Close and convenient to Hershey. Pretty clean. Did have to do laundry while there and one of the two washers was broken. The bigger complaint I had was the area for breakfast was small and very crowded in the morning when everyone was getting ready to go to the park.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fuzz Face Great Front Desk Staff, Pool area POOR
Greeted by very courteous and attentive front desk staff.
Pool area needs to be properly attended to, cleaned.
Pool and Spa water conditions poor. Breakfast service staff rude. Room was comfortable and quiet (even giving the fact that we were right next to the elevator).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by joesanta Overall hotel was great, beds were comfortable and breakfast had a nice selection
All of the things that i listed above would have come back and stay here again.
We did have an issue with one of our rooms right after checking in. The toilet overflowed in one of the rooms. We contacted the front desk and they came right up to the room fix and clean up the problem. The staff worked hard and fast. When they were done we left to go to Hershey Park. We should have inspected the carpet better. Upon returning from the park that night the carpet was still wet and we once again contacted the front desk to bring up additional towels to try and dry the carpet but the odor still remained. We should have asked to change rooms at this point as the unpleasant odor remained.
This issue put a damper on an otherwise very pleasant stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marano43 Extremely Satisfying
I must say I was pleasently surprised with everthing
about this Hotel - we were traveling with our son/daughter in law and three grandchildren who were able to stay togather in one room and were very comfortable - the kids enjoyed the pancakes at breakfast - the overall breakfast was great - there was choices for all taste. If we return to Hershey in the future ,we will make it
a point to stay at this Hotel - it was a refreashing expirence.

Good value and close to a couple of good places to eat. Rooms were clean and comfortable and a good cost effective alternative to staying in one of the more expensive Hershey Hotels. A 5 minute drive to the park.

It was what you would expect from the Holiday Inn.
However the pool was a little disappointing. The water was cloudy and a very strong chlorine scent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by myntn overall, manageable but could use some improvements
Staff was polite and helpful. Breakfast time frame could be extended until 10---seeing that we are on vacation, waking up early to get around and to breakfast by 930 was a little bit of a time crunch! More variety on the yogurts my daughter would have liked :).
Building itself could use a little more "modern" touches and repaints etc.
Doors on end of building opened without the use of the key card even though it indicated they were "locked for safety and key card required" The pool lock also remained open and key card was not required as indicated.
Pool consistently looked murky, and each time we went there, within minutes of being in the pool (which seemed to always have no one in it) there was hair floating! There is rust looking stains on the bottom of the hot tub, the fuse for the jets kept blowing and so we couldn't turn the jets on in the whirlpool. The bottom of the pool had chipping paint, and the scum around the water level in the pool was black and several areas had words like "dirty" "gross" and "filthy" carved into the filth! Staff seemed concerned about the issue when i addressed it, but the issues never changed. Bathrooms just outside of the pool were always dirty and floors are slick for being used with pool guests! And there was rarely enough towels for us to use in pool area.
Elevator not very accomodating to use the wheeled carts for luggage!
Shower curtains don't reach from end to end, and there is no "dryer" line for bathing suits to dry.
And seeing that this is tourist area for small children, a bench so they can reach the sink to brush their teeth and wash their hands in the rooms, would be helpful!
No recognition of IHG guests. I am new to the program, and only one of the 3 Holiday Inn Express' that we stayed at trully impressed me and that was the one in North Fremont Ohio.
Otherwise stay was good, quiet even though we were overlooking lobby and next to elevator, which was impressive considering another location we stayed at was noisey and we were almost the last room in the hallway away from ALL traffic it would seem.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hardworkingman Its ok.
The room was mostly clean. It was smaller than I expected and a little cramped. The pool area needed some additional cleaning, the game room was mostly not working, and the carpets need some repair. Overall, though it was ok. I probably would stay for work; but not vacation again.
