    Our room was very comfortable and clean. We had a room with two queen beds, refrigerator and microwave. WiFi was available free too. We had a basic breakfast included in the morning. Nice selection of items such as cereal, bananas, yogart, donuts, juice and coffee. A restaurant is also available on site. They also have a very nice pool area with a patio. Of course we could not use the pool as it was outdoors and we visited in the month of October. We will stay at this hotel again as we were pleased with our expereince. Great place to stay if your going to Hershey park.

    Only downside to our room was that we were in a room close to the road which is 422 and very busy, therefore traffic noise was apparent. However, you could always request a room in the back away from the traffic noise.

    The motel is old and so on arrival asked to see our room. What a pleasant surprise the room was beautiful and obviously had recent renovations. As had the whole inside of the motel had all been redone. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Parking was good and it was very quiet. The restaurant was gourmet and reasonable

    The only complain was maintaining connection with the internet. They seem to be constantly changing the entry code. They had slips at the desk how to connect , which worked fine but did not last If you left the computer for any length of time. I finally realized that each slip had a different enry number. So I just took 5 slips so atleast I had them in the room when I wanted them

    That room eas horrible for a $100 a night it was too small, cramped, not so clean. Overall experience of Howard Johnson was HORRIBLE!!! Never again!! We should be refunded $ you couldn't pay me enough to stay at a ho Jo again. I will file a complaint with BBB when we get home.

    I liked that the room was very clean. I also liked how close it was to Hershey park.

    The only thing I can say is that the walls were paper thin. You can hear everything that was going on in the other room.

    It was quiet and close to the park. It met our needs for a few nights.

    The room was a little small, especially the bathroom.

    Superb

    Location was convenient to Hershey Park (our destination) and because it was summertime was able to enjoy the outdoor pool area. The room had everything that you needed,e.g. small frig, microwave, coffee pot, etc. but space was tight because of all the amenities. Perfect for short stay because you're not in the room that long.

    A little dated furniture-wise and missed spots during the cleaning routine. Saw a cobb-web or two! These things definitely could be corrected.

    Breakfast was good. It was close to Hershey Park & the downtown area. It was also located in a nice area. It was great to have 2 sinks, microwave & refrigerator!

    Although everything was clean, the bathroom could be updated.

    Very good

    I needed a place close to Hersey. This was the most economical I could find. We had 2 adults, 3 kids, and a toddler. Most places I checked did not have availability for us. The staff was friendly, helpful, and responsive. The price for the one room, seemed expensive; but once you check other comparables in the area, you will find it very competitive. The pool was small but the kids had a great time in it. They also included a free breakfast and free wi-fi which I thought made it an even better value. We got some take-out from the restauraunt on site and it was very good.

    My only real complaint was that you could here the people in the rooms next to us. Even if they were just talking normally. I put in ear plugs and I was fine.
