When we visit Hershey, we always stay at the Howard Johnson's on East Chocolate Avenue. This is an older hotel, but it is always clean and very comfortable. There are different size rooms.

The nice thing about this hotel was the pool, which my daughter enjoyed swimming in. It was quite large for a Howard Johnson's pool. The room was just ok but not a big deal since we only needed to sleep one night while visiting Hershey Park. I was not looking for frills. So a decent budget hotel to rest your... More
