My friends and I were guests at this hotel for our Youth and Government conference, and could not have been happier. Our rooms were spacious and clean, and the ball rooms where we held our meetings were very accommodating. The staff was extremely kind. We were very pleased with our stay and would come again!

This was my second trip to Red Lion for business in just over a month. The first time out I wasn't expecting much walking into the place as the first appearance was old and antiquated, boy was I wrong. On our first trip out the booking agent had placed us in a conference room with no windows and a nonfunctioning...

I stayed here at a model government convention. The rooms where dirty and very outdated. I felt like I needed a shower immediately. We found bugs and nails in our room. It was absolutely disgusting in every way. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

I liked this hotel. We had the king suite and it was perfect for a family of four with two small children. The staff was helpful and nice. The restaurant had great food. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was the cleaning crew. When we left for the day and returned. Our bed was made and our...

We decided to book a last minute spring break trip to Hershey Park with two other families. We were six adults and seven kids ranging from 17 to 3. I called the hotel early on the day of our arrival and requested an early check in which they were able to accommodate. The staff was so helpful. The three ladies...

We used the Red Lion for our recent stay during a Youth Convention in the Hershey Area. Jane, the group sales rep we worked with, was amazing. She was very accommodating with our ever changing group needs. She was friendly over the phone and quick to respond to emails. The hotel was clean, the rooms were larger than standard hotel...

We recently booked a block of rooms @ Red Lion for a convention. First of all, I won't stay anywhere else as long as the current staff is in place. Reservations were simple, effective and efficient. Rooms were clean, the overall facility was well maintained and the housekeeping/desk staff were courteous and helpful.

My family and I had a good stay. The hotel's manager was extremely accommodating. The rooms were ok, but we would love if they updated their carpets. My kids went to the pool everyday and had a blast. My family had a wonderful time and will be looking forward to our next visit.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It's a bit dated, but amenities and quality were a notch above what was expected. Staff were friendly and attentive. Location is a popular destination for youth groups, but noise seemed to be fairly well controlled considering rooms could be better soundproofed. Free internet is available for hotel guests. Outdoor pool was closed, but...
