We stayed one night here while on our way back from NYC. The hotel is in a good location its easy to find and close enough to stores, places to eat, and the interstate. For the price we were not sure what to expect so I am pleased to say we were very happy with our stay. The room we stayed in was a very spacious King room with standard amenities like a mini fridge, microwave, ironing board and iron. My only gripe/not gripe is that the room is so spacious it needs a bigger tv :) My only true gripe may be the breakfast area just because of lack of seating. There are just a few tables and not alot of seats. Now to be fair this is more of a continental breakfast w/the addition of a waffle maker so not really a sit down hot breakfast. If you are looking for a hotel with a big hot breakfast this is not your hotel. If you need a very clean, inexpensive place for a night or two then this hotel will meet all of your basic needs.

We went in halves with our friends for a 2-night stay while we were in town for the huge RV show. 2 couples in a room with 2 Queen beds (room 204). The room was decent size and had a fridge, micro and large tv. The negatives: of the 2 guys behind the counter at check in, one was wearing a fishing t-shirt the other a polo with the hotel logo. Other times they were right outside the entrance smoking. The complimentary breakfast was limited (but typical for a budget hotel. (The waffle maker was nice though!) There were only 3 small tables in a tiny area in the front lobby. It was cramped. The orange juice (from a dispenser) tasted like pure concentrate. Overall I guess it was a decent value considering the rates were higher - due to the thousands of people attending the show.

We stayed for one night and found this hotel to be better than expected. We walked in without reservations (we had checked on-line to be sure they had rooms) and were checked in without and delay. The clerk was friendly and professional.

Since it was just a one-night stay, we didn't really explore the hotel but found the rooms to be clean and comfortable.

Breakfast was fine, especially for the price. Waffles, cereal, fruit, and tiny muffins, along with juice, tea and coffee.

Very easy off/on to Route 81.

Exceptional hotel with excellent kind staff and very clean rooms. I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoy my room. My room was clean and spacious. Cleaning staff were so courteous. Breakfast was only coffee, bagels and cereal but kitchen area was clean also. Will definitely come back here again. Only complaint I can say was i had to wait till 5:00 p.m. to check in so lost time. Other than that, I highly recommend this place.

Let me begin by saying "Holy Smokes!!!" Check-in was hassle free and smooth. When I got the room on the 4th floor we had to take the elevator similar to tower of terror from Disney. When we stepped into our room it's smelled like cigarettes, but since we were so tired we didn't want to bother with the hassle of changing rooms we kept it. We checked the beds and was free from bed bugs but not from mysterious hairs!! The bathroom had a musical shower head after a minute of showering and an extractor that also had a squeaking noise as you turned it on but then it went away. We lucky had Disinfecting wipes to clean everything we were going to touch. When we checked the nightstand we found a bible and behind it there was a mound of cigarette butts along with a empty box of cigarettes!!!! I could not believe what I just saw!!! I was living the real "Hotel Hell" as seen on tv!!! The funny thing was that there was a sign that said "No smoking" but some lowlife just didn't care! We quickly closed it up and never opened the drawer again. The brown sheets were dirty so I didn't wrap myself in them. I said if this the room how is the breakfast that they serve the guest? So for that matter I didn't eat breakfast at that funhouse! The only good thing we're the channels on tv and the comfy bed and pillows. In conclusion I will never stay at this place again!! Then again you get for what you pay for! Not recommend if your looking for a clean place to stay!!

This was probably the smallest hotel I have ever stayed at, but the rooms were VERY roomy, clean and new. The price was great too. The staff was also kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again

If you want to spend more than $80 a night for a room with a pile of french fries on the floor next to the bed, sasquatch-size black hairs on the towels, and murky stains as visible as daylight all over the sheets, then definitely book your stay here! Honestly, the only way you could make this work is to arrive back at the room from a show around 3am, completely tanked out of your gourd. Trust us on that one!!!

I had stayed at this hotel before and it is a good bargain. It's right off the exit, and there are good restaurants nearby. The hotel is very outdated, especially the carpet but seemed relatively clean. The displeasing thing was at my last stay it rained very hard and was awakened at 3:30AM by the loud sound of dripping. The roof was leaking and dripping pretty heavy, luckily near the doorway of the bedroom and not over the bed. There was also a larger leak in the outer part of the room. It was like Chinese torture. We had to open the windows to drown out the sound of the dripping. When I told them about it at the front desk, he said nothing other than they would have to check it out. I asked for a refund and didn't get it. They made me sign a waiver stating that I wouldn't smoke in the room or they would charge me $150 and they wouldn't comp my stay.

This hotel is a great, MUCH less expensive alternative to the hotels in Hershey, and it's only 15 minutes away. We arrived after a 2-hour drive from Laurel, MD and a 9-hour day at Hersheypark to find an easy, courteous check-in, a clean, quiet, spacious room and a great night's sleep. With a AAA discount, it was only $80/night, vs. $134+/night at the Econo Lodge closest to Hersheypark!

Is it a luxury hotel? Nope. But it is really, really good at being a bargain hotel. In fact, I have stayed at other Choice Hotels properties, including their so-called premium labels, that were not nearly as well-kept and comfortable. Also, there's the Capitol Diner nearby if you don't like their breakfast.
