Very dated looking Motel 6. Building has obviously not seen a renovation in many years. And it shows.

Very convieniant to the highway, however when we first pulled in wondered if we had made a mistake ...

Man at the window was pleasant and informative , the swimming pool probably has not been used in years, and it shows.

Our room was on the 3rd floor , and there is only 1 hot elevator in the middle of the building.

For what we paid the room was ok, and were only there for a place to sleep, so ok with low thrills.

Room was clean (except for the deceased roach on the tv stand) , the beds were comfy despite the well stained bed linens that need replaced, and there was no refrigerator or hair dryer.

No room service, but thats a covid thing I think, you had to take your towels or whatever needed attention to the walk up window and they would replace them.

But again, for what we paid , it wasn't bad.

We were able to get this motel room at a decent price but after our experience, I think we overpaid. The front staff were friendly and accommodating which is why I decided to give this places 2/5. We had a pretty standard room with two beds with a good AC which can't be said for some of the other rooms whose AC was leaking. The bed felt like you were sleeping on springs, the shower had low water pressure, and the sink was practically on the floor. The hangers in our room were rusty and the floor of the shower was stained. The room was fairly spacious for three people with suitcases. BUT we found a roach crawling on the table next to the TV. We killed it since it was late at night and the hotel was already short-staffed. Since we were leaving the next day we just decided to move on.

After doing some extensive research for a cheap hotel
in the Hershey area, I settled on this Motel 6. It's about
16 easy highway miles from Hershey Park (20 minutes).
The other motels were much more money, even the
no-name mom & pop places were quite high for July.
Place was decent...had a 24 hour lobby which made
it feel safe, the location is right off Highway 83 and
there were several places to eat nearby (Bob Evans,
Eat n' Park, Pizza Hut, etc). The rooms were basic,
clean, no frills....a little on the smallish side with two
double beds. bathroom had a shower, no tub.
Would definitely stay there again. place was packed
each night with cars and they would all be gone in
the mornings. pool could have been better, was
in the parking lot surrounded by cars, could have
been in a better location on the property.

I have never been so disappointed and disgusted in a hotel in my life! We wouldn't have stayed if our reservations weren't paid for in advance, never have I had to clean a room before I could use it! The staff actually gave me clothes and cleaning supplies! Don't stay there save your money. I had to use tissues/baggies to even push elevator buttons! And elevator smelt like piss! And was never cleaned at all!!!!! Not to mention small room size, we had two dou left beds and one was tight to the bathroom wall, and other was up touching air conditioner. We were told move the nightstand to make room. Also fridge and microwave were right at door way. Door wasn't sealed proper so bugs could get in. I even went to Walmart and bought a bath mat and towels as we felt theirs weren't cleaned properly!

Great location near the interstate. Convenient to restaurants and shops. Very pleasant front desk clerk who appreciated family and what it meant to us. The gentleman went out of his way to make it a great stay. A very comfortable hotel I would be happy to stay at again

Don’t stay here. It is an absolute dump. We needed a place to sleep and leave the next morning. I’m hoping we make it out without getting some unknown type of communicable disease. Comforter was stained. Shower was dirty. Only two pancake thick pillows. The bed was awful and there was hair all through it. Took almost an hour for the room to warm up, but when we found the hair in the “clean” bed we decided to check out and drive through the night.

My wife, I, and grandchildren were supposed to stay 3 nights, well we left after one horrible night of no sleep! Even though I pay a cheap price doesn't mean we should have to put up with yelling, swearing, door banging, pot smoking, and who knows what else. If you are a hooker or a drug dealer this may be your kind of place. At least we did get our money back. The rest of the trip was saved by a nice stay at Cocoa Country Inn in Hershey.

Spent the day at Hershey and luckily checked into the hotel before going to the Drive-In Movie as it was early enough to pick the floor we wanted our room on. The room, at best, was okay - I brought Lysol and definitely felt the need to use it. The bed was okay to sleep but other than that - ugh! The bathroom shower stall was disgusting - looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months and months and there was mold growing in the corner of the bathroom area. In the morning we decided it was best to bypass the shower and just drive home.

All I can say is you get what you pay for, although $50.00 was a little on the high side for this room - $35.00 would have been more acceptable.

When arriving in the afternoon we noticed people moving tables and chairs from a room outside to a grassy area on the side of the parking lot. Our room key didn't work so a painter opened our door with a master key card hanging around his neck. Awesome! After a long day at Hershey park we returned at 10:30 pm to find the table we saw earlier was for everyone in the parking lot drinking, smoking pot and raising hell. The balcony outside our room was also full of people partying. They commented on us having children in the room next to theirs. They were running around the balcony banging on doors and using foul language. Needless to say we didn't sleep all night because we were worried about our car and the safety of our grand children in the room. At 5:30 am I went to the office and demanded my money back and checked out. Absolutely without a doubt our worst hotel experience ever and we travel quite a bit.
