If you haven't been to Hershey, you don't realize that this is the living version of Willy Wonka... It really does smell like chocolate here! Mmmm, so yummy!
I went to Chocolate World with some of my friends, on a chilly November day. It's really a rather lovely area, even though it was gray and cold enough to see your breath. I loved the …
A Lizzie Update:
We got to spend a few minutes with Matt and Sara this morning before we headed out. They live in Alexandria, which is perfect because it is right next to the two things we wanted to visit: Arlington National Cemetery and Mount Vernon.
We set off again with a full car towards Arlington National Cemetery. I have …

The plan for today is to do a loop around the eastern suburbs of Harrisburg. Hershey is pretty far away, but I figure it really needs to be a part of this Superhike because it's such a unique and special town. So from Middletown, I head northeast through the countryside towards Hershey.
Actually, technically Hershey isn't a town, though... nope, believe it or not, it does not have "borough" status, (which, ...
This we we took it easy with short drives each day to get from Boston, through New Hampshire and Vermont back into New York State and then south to Pennsylvania. We had a lovely day wandering around little villages filled with quilt shops and all things Amish. The last three days we have spent at the Ford Nationals at Carlisle where Paul has been in car ...
... we could get the boys, and to allay of guilt for leaving them for so long. There is a 'Bret Michaels' (from the 80's/early 90's hair metal bad Poison) range of dog collars and leads, as well as a Martha Stewart range. It seems that everything needs some form of celebrity endorsement before people buy it. Even Oprah endorses the **** coffee at Starbucks.
After lunch we had a quick look at the outlet centre ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites Hershey
The Hampton Inn's lobby is nice, which makes you think the rooms are nice BUT they're not that great. We stayed in a 1 bdrm suite. It was clean, looked like new tile in bathroom & kitchenette areas. But the furniture was old & outdated. The kitchenette was old. The rug needed to be replaced. The bedroom wasn't bad, furniture seemed newer. The only downfall with the bedroom is that they had the air conditioner unit next to the bed so you got hit in the side of the face with cold air all night. Don't know who the genius was that came up with that floor plan. We had to move a small dresser in front of the air conditioner and stack our suitcases on top of it to block the blast of air. It was in the 80's temps. so we needed the air on all night.
Turned up at Hampton Inn without a booking and managed to negotiate a room for $109 - what a bargain! Rooms were clean, comfortable and offered complementary broadband. The fitness center and swimming pool helped burn off the Hershey chocolate calories. Recommended.
Hate the hotel
The carpet is soooo bad that you cannot walk around without shoes. I requested a crib for my son and got a metal white crib that is old and rusty. My son hurt himself many times. What century are they in? The funitures in our room was old and the pull out couch was falling apart. It was not worst the $ 251 a night !! Check in is 3pm. When we got there at 3 , the room was not ready. Never will i stay there again. Aug. 2004
We spent Memorial Day weekend in Hershey and stayed at the Hampton. We have nothing but high marks for this hotel. It was excellent. The staff (everyone from the front desk to the breakfast staff) were all very friendly and extremely eager to please. And though the hotel was full, our suite was extremely quiet. The hotel is an excellent value. The suites are huge and not expensive in the least. The breakfast was nice, clean and well maintained keeping food coming out. The pool, though smallish, was great. This hotel is closer to the attractions of Hershey than the over-priced Hershey Lodge. I would definitely recommend this hotel. And while in Hershey do try the restaurant called What If just 3 doors down from the Hampton Inn--we had the most amazing meal there! And this restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. Great hotel!
Wonderful!!! we stay here every time we go to hershey!
this hotle is THE BEST. you get soo much for your $$. we get the king suite and it's like 2 rooms for the price of one. the staff is friendly and always accomidating. the few times a problem has come up (we've stayed there like 9 times) they ALWAYS fix it right away. AWESOME!!!
Would definately stay again!!!!
Stayed during Spring Break , Easter weekend. Our stay was wonderful. Rooms clean and comfortable, staff more then friendly. Hershey was very crowded , so we took advantage of the pool, and were more then pleased. The continental breakfast was way ABOVE AVERAGE!!!! Coffe, tea, and hot chocolate available ALL DAY in the lobby. EXCELLANT!!!!!
The hotel, and my room was beautiful....but my praise ends there. I booked a Jacuzzi suite 2 months before my trip through 1800hampton. I checked in, went up to my room and found no jacuzzi. Went down to the front desk and was told that there were no jacuzzi suites available, even thought I had reserved the room two months ago directly through Hampton's 800 number. I was also given the wrong info about the size of the jacuzzi suite when I booked it. I was told it was a 2 room suite, but it is only available as a one room suite. The info didn't really matter since I wasn't getting my jacuzzi suite. Anyway, I ended up in a regular room at the same $ rate.The whole reason I booked this hotel was for the jacuzzi. So...my room had light bulbs missing from a few lamps,and food left over in the cabinets from a previous visitor. Obviously houskeeping doesn't feel the need to clean out the kitchen cabinets. The hotel advertises 30 or so T.V. channels, but I only got about 10-15, most with horrible reception. This really only mattered since I have children. Housekeeping is supposed to restock coffee,tea,hot chocolate & popcorn each day. The only thing they restocked was coffee and that was it. The continental breakfast consisted of frozen bagels, frozen waffles, frozen pancakes, frozen french toast, cold cereal and so on. .Sorry this was so long, I just don't want anyone else being dissapointed, like my family was. For the $255.00 you will spend a night I would definitely say, stay somewhere else!! For that kind of money the service should have been MUCH better than it was...
We made ast minute plans to go to Hershey Park over Memorial Day weekend, and after much research, I chose this hotel. Well, I wasn't disappointed. While it wasn't the 5 star Hershey brand resort, it was also not nearly their price. I was delighted by the friendliness of the staff (reception, housekeeping, and breakfast). They had a nice indoor, heated pool and jacuzzi plus a gym that had 2 treadmills, a stairmaster, and a bike. The rooms were clean, and the bathroom was huge (a plus as I have 2 young kids). Probably the best feature of this hotel was their deluxe continental breakfast, which was included in their rate. They kept bringing the food out, and it wasn't just cereal and cold pastries. They had bagels, muffins, waffles, french toast, pancakes, juices, fruits, yogurt, danish, assorted cereals, oatmeal, etc. They had toasters and a microwave on hand so things could be warmed up. They used their space efficiently as they had their breakfast room set up in their very nice lobby. Considering the proximity to Hershey Park, overall, this was a great value!
dis hotel was bangin yo for rell. i had a awsome time and i wanna go back for some more room service n stuff you know wha im talkin bout... WERD i would like to holla at mu friends theodora poopnpeia and cassandra from da hood in dallas. 1 luv
An average place
Stayed during April school break for one night. It's about 1/2 mile to Hershey park so the location was very good. The rooms were average but the only problem we had was the indoor pool heater wasn't working when we were there. The water was freezing but the kids didn't seem to mind. Other parents stated the pool was suppose to be fixed the day prior but a problem arose. They did have a hot tub in the same section that was working and was nice. The rate included a great breakfast of juices/milk/muffins/bagels/pastry/waffles/french toast etc and the help kept bringing out the food for the numerous families that stayed there. Not a bad place if you can get a good rate.
