Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reader11 Comfortable short stay
Visited for Columbus Day weekend. Husband and 6 yr old son used the indoor pool one morning after breakfast - had it all to themselves. Nice that towels were supplied.
Someone needs to address the extremely poor bedtime reading lighting - or lack of. Nightstand between beds has low voltage lamp, nothing overhead - could barely read. Volume on TV remote seems to be preset - had to fish around the TV monitor to find other adjustment. And why don't hotels supply nightlights of some kind?
Appreciated the coffee/tea maker, but in the bathroom? Really? Could have better used that outlet for, gee, maybe a nightlight??
Perhaps replacing the shoved-into-the-corner, oversized-for-the room easy chair with a smaller, but still comfortable chair and small shelf for coffee-makings might be a better use of space.
There was a small refrigerator plus a microwave.
More drawer space would have been appreciated - I believe there were only 3 or 4 shallow dresser drawers. We were unable to comfortably unpack - even for our very short stay. (And we're not heavy-duty, overpackers.)
Nicest surprise - best breakfast - hardly a mere Continental. Everything from refrig with milk, waters, juice assortments; choices of cereals; hot sweet sticky buns; eggs scrambled or omelet and sausage links and patties; bacon; pancake maker machine; breads of all kinds anad toaster; muffins - what more could you want for breakfast - included in the price! Impressive almost buffet-like offerings!
The sweet, friendly, white-haired German accented lady who passed around extras in the breakfast room, was the most customer friendly and terrific greeter, remembering the longer-stay visitors' names, a smile for everyone, asking all if they needed anything. She just couldn't have been more welcoming and gave a real homey feel to the place. She really made the stay worthwhile, herself, and made it easier to overlook any minor inconveniences mentioned above! Yes, we'll go back - and hopefully she'll still be there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by arbasicula Comfortable, Clean and Wonderful Staff
We stayed Columbus Day weekend and had a lovely time. The hotel was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was incredibly accommodating. The only thing that disappointed us was the musty smell in the exercise room. But that is a minor complaint. I would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay there again if we return to the area.

This is the best Holiday Inn we have ever experienced. The staff is wonderful and very efficient, taking care of all our needs. Every time we visit, they make us feel like family and truly make our travels enjoyable. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area.

I HAVE STAYED AT MANY HIES IN THE PAST AND JUDGING STRICTLY ON THE EXPERIENCE OF THE HOTEL AND STAFF, THIS MAY HAVE BEEN THE BEST I HAVE SEEN. I STAYED AT THIS LOCATION ONLY TO USE THEIR INDOOR POOL WITH MY 2.5 YEAR OLD TWINS WHO NEEDED SOME TIME TO LEARN. WHAT I FOUND WAS A FRONT DESK RECEPTIONIST WHO WAS ON TOP OF IT. PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS GREETING, HELPFUL ANSWERS, AND A GOOD ATTITUDE. THE ROOM WAS WELL KEPT, AND CLEAN. EVERYTHING WORKED AND THEY PROVIDED PLENTY OF AMENITIES FROM COFFEE TO SHAMPOO. tHE COMMON SPACES WERE ALSO CLEAN AND WELL KEPT. THE POOL IS SMALL BUT REALLY NICE FOR WHAT IT IS AND THE TOWELS WERE NICE CONDITION. THE BREAKFAST AREA WAS HOPPING AND THE FOOD WAS GOOD. THE STAFF PERSON WAS FRIENDLY AND TALKED TO EVERYONE AND MADE SURE THEY HAD WHATEVER THEY NEEDED. LOOK THIS PLACE GETS AN A+. GOOD JOB!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kegan32 Overall experience
This Holiday inn was not as nice as the one in Breezewood, PA where we stayed the night before Plus it was much more expensive and was not really worth the extra cost. The breakfast was not all that good either,; the pancake maker was not operationaI. Could not get on the internet at all, just would not respond (tried the computer in the lobby too). We will probably not stay at this H.I. in the future.

Overall a good experience. Clean room. Requested and was promised a 1st floor room but was put on the 3rd floor. Manager offered to move me the next day and offered points to make up for the mistake - which I did not receive.
A good hotel if you're planning to go to Hershey or Amish Country but it is not near any of the major expressways and is hard to get to.

We travel the world with our jobs and this Holiday Inn Express was a flagship example of what a hotel should be and provide to its customers. The rooms were large, clean, stocked and just everything a traveler could ask for. We will definitely come back again and again.

We were treated like family during a very difficult time, my Mother passing. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and if we needed anything, just let them know. We are very grateful for their help and kindness.

I was recently displaced due to a fire in my home, I stayed at this hotel for several weeks. I can honestly say the people working here are fantastic! Everyone made me feel very comfortable, I kept my grandchildren a few nights and they were treated great as well, my grandson misses the breakfast, (he loved the pancake maker).
If ever in the Lebanon area don't hesitate to stay here!
Thanks to all for making this rough time a little more bearable!

Our recent stay at this hotel was a return visit. We are a family of 5, which includes our dog "Duke", and we are once again pleased with our stay overall. Any issues we encountered were handled in a timely efficient professional manner, as well as (and most importantly) to our "Satisfaction".
We will highly recommend this hotel to anyone one and we plan to return again repeatedly as we have family in the area and this is be far the best facility we've found to date.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hershey2013 Great Staff
The staff from the managers, desk attendants, the women servicing the breakfast area and housekeeping were fantastic. We had to leave earlier than planned the staff were very accommodating. I would recommend this facility as a local establishment close to Hersheypark and all the surrounding areas. WiFi worked great.
The only con would be that the room available for our party of five - two adults (women-friends) and three children (family and friend) was one where the sofa bed that we specifically needed was broken and we had to remove the mattress from the sofa and place it on the floor for the kids to sleep on it. The manager recognized immediately that this was inappropriate and accommodated us financially for the inconvenience at the end of our trip. The indoor pool was not heated but the room was nice and steamy. It would have been nice to have a Jacuzzi/indoor spa for the end of those long days at the amusement park.

We were in town for my high school reunion. We were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. Knowing the area, we didn't expect much in the way of comfort or luxury. We were wrong! The room was very spacious, very clean, very comfortable and quite welcoming. The facilities were outstanding! Highly recommended

Family did short getaway to Hershey Park and found this Holiday Inn Express online. Have to say everything was wonderful, rooms clean, staff very nice - even accommodated early check in with no hassles, breakfast had enough for everyone to choose from (and we have picky eaters) and location was good.
Thanks for making a quick trip an easy trip as well!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VisitingHershey Hotel web site sent us to the wrong address
Hotel web site gave the wrong address (mailing address?) not the physical address. So, GPS had us driving to the wrong side of town. Staff didn't seem concerned about inconvenience, or that it would be corrected.
Also, the smoking area needs to be away from the front door.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Holiday Inn Express in Lebanon. We came from Dallas, TX to see performances at The Gretna Theatre. We had other family members from McLean, VA meet us there, We were so pleasantly pleased with your staff....they were attentive and friendly from making reservations to all of our needs during our stay. The facilities were clean, updated, and comfortable. It was a great place to stay, and we appreciate the gracious hospitality. A+

My daughter's Irish Dance School participated in the Celtic Fling at the the RenFaire Grounds. Several of the families stayed there. Great room, the staff was great...just wish the pool area was bigger and not so hot! The kids, however, had a great time swimming after a long day of performances. We look forward to staying there next year!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Lebanon for business, and found the staff amazing. They truly cared about me, and the other guests in my party. We had some very early morning meetings, so they had the breakfast ready for us 45 minutes before they had to. I highly recommend staying here.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ckp1 dissapointed
Hotel appeared clean and updated upon arrival, the room seemed a bit worn though. Upon inspection of the bedding, as most people would do, the sheets contained an unacceptable amount of hair and appeared possibly not to have been changed. A hair or two from possibly the room attendant changing the sheets would be understandable but this was over the limit. I was shocked at the amount and had never seen this before in all my stays at other HIE and its affiliates. Carpet was worn as well.
Also the treadmill did not work, ok fine, however, the equipment had not been wipped down or cleaned in quite some time as was evident by the stains and drip marks on the equipment. On a side note, the lights in the work out room are motion activated which is fine, except when using the elliptical machine they will shut off because they no longer sense you are in the room. So, you will be working out in the dark unless you want to stop every few minutes to activate the lights again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Margrit1 Two major disruptions
Wonderful hotel and great services. However there were two major disruptions to my stay, which severely brings down my ratings:
1. I had to change rooms because of an awful odor coming out of the sink in the bathroom.
2. The firealarm went off at least 8 times during my last night with the fire department coming and apparantly finding the cause, stating it was faulty equipment.
The Manager (great personality) gave me 1/2 of the cost of for the last night, which I appreciated. In retrospect, I probably should have had 1-2 free days for all the anxiety and sleepnessness.
