We had tons fun. Boys loved indoor water park. Room was average size, stayed in "hershey tower" room. Wouldn't say it wasnt good just very pricy for the size. Although package did come with bed and breakfast for both mornings, hershey gardens admissions for 4, and hersheys story museum admissions for 4. Parking wasnt available near our entrance but they...

Stayed here overnight during Spring Break and had a nice time. The main reason for the trip was so my kids could play at Water Works. The hotel is very big, so be sure to request a room close to Water Works if that's your main goal. We stayed in the Hershey's Chocolate Bar building (with an inside entry room)...

I stayed at the Hershey Lodge for a convention. It suffers a bit from being a popular family vacation spot and the hallways are dreary. The rooms are ok, bathrooms small. Beware, however, that many of the rooms are a 10 minute walk from the lobby! (They do have scooter rentals.) There are several restaurants and eateries on the property,...

Stayed at the lodge during Spring Break, and boy did they fleece us on price. Our room was smaller than most standard hotel rooms, but they advertised it as a "suite." Everywhere you went you were charged--like a cruise ship stuck on land. I found a Giant supermarket about 1 mile away, and shopped for food so I wouldn't have...

We visited the Hershey lodge with our 2 young children 3 & 6 last week for 2 evenings and although it was a very nice and clean hotel it was a bit overpriced. Our children LOVED the waterworks area. It was clean and not crowded at all. My biggest complaint was that our room was located in the CoaCoa area...

My husband, toddler, and I just returned from an overnight getaway at the Hershey Lodge. We went to experience the zoo and Water Works. Water Works is perfect for a 2.5 year old and was the highlight of the trip. We were unable to check into our hotel room until 4:30 which was inconvenient and then found the room to...

This is a nice hotel but I feel not enough parking for the amount of rooms, we had to walk so far with 3 children to get to our room. The miniature golf was open varied hours, had to catch when someone was there. The indoor pool was great for keeping kids busy

This is our second time at Hershey Lodge. It is more geared toward little kids, especially the "water park". I was mislead by the person that booked our room that our 12 & 10 year old's would have a great time at the water park. They were there about 15 minutes and done. It is for kids 7 and under,...

We recently stayed at the Hershey Lodge for opening Spring weekend at Hershey Park. Our room was in the Reese's section I. The room itself was very clean and the maid was very nice and accommodating. All the staff were actually very pleasant and helpful. We were close to the Waterworks which was nice but very far from the lobby....

This hotel is priced as a luxury hotel and, even though it's decent, it's definitely not worth the price they're charging. I used room service twice and the servers were very professional and friendly. Breakfast seemed a bit overpriced, especially $11 for a pot of hot water and 4 tea bags, but the eggs and toast were good. I had...
