Good location, great shopping, 7.9 miles 18 min to park. As cheap as you can get it and as close to the park for that price. Rooms are clean GPS states Howard Johnson so I assume that is what it was before Econo lodge changed name.

Just minutes from downtown Hershey where you can enjoy Hershey Park, The Chocolate World and the museum. The hotel is nothing fancy, a little old but on a quiet street and pretty low key. Very nice hotel associates made it a great stay.

Every August, I take my son to Hershey Park. A 10-minute drive from the park gets us a clean room for literally half the price of a hotel in Hershey proper. We have been staying here for the past three or four years (the desk clerk recognized us the last time we checked in). The staff is always friendly and...

I am a diamond member of Choice Hotels and usually stay at Comfort Suites. Due to some recent reviews at the local Comfort Suites we decided to check out the Econo Lodge as it looked pleasant from the outside. The four things that are most important to me as a business traveler is that the internet has to work efficiently,...

A friend and I stayed for a concert at Hershey Park. We had low expectations,but were pleasantly surprised. The lobby seemed recently remodeled and offered a great first impression. The room was large and very spacious. The AC worked well, and the room was clean. I would recommend for anyone on a budget. The hotel was also right off the...

A friend and I stayed here for the Hershey Park Mixtape concert. The staff was very pleasant, let us check in a little early, and gave us great directions ( 10 mins away) to Hershey. Not much around it, but quiet, clean , and easy to get to. I would recommend this hotel!

First off the rooms were very small. They had no elevator, which is very inconvenient when traveling with senior citizens and small children. The room was clean, but very limiting for our family. The continental breakfast was very limiting as well. Little to no room to sit and/or eat.

This place was excellent for the price we paid. It was spotless. The beds were clean. They offered a small breakfast area with waffles, muffins, cereal ,juice, coffee and tea. It was about a 10 minute drive to Hershey park. We paid $75 plus taxes and fees for a family of four. There was no pool. We would stay here...

Nice place, very clean, bed a little lumpy but I slept okay. Very friendly and helpful staff, average continental breakfast, waffles but no eggs. Ignore review for Hershey Lodge in Hershey, PA. I didn't stay there. I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Harrisburg.

Horrible. Staff was rude & it was over priced for the accommodation. Didn t even have a working vending machine on property. Beds were ok, but the slamming of doors all night long in the hall ways and the smells of the room, we're bad. Wouldn't go back and will avoid Econo Lodge from here on out. We travel alot,...
