Extremely pleasant stay at the Rodeway
I decided to book our stay this trip @ the Rodeway because they offered a room with three beds which is a huge plus since I have three kids and my daughter has usually got stuck on a cot that was less then desirable. Two days before leaving I stumbled across this website and read the review from July 2005 and started to panic over my hotel choice but it was just too late to change the reservations so I just crossed my fingers and hoped for a miracle.............. a miracle I guess is what I got. I could find no justification in either of the negative reviews on this site. The room was awesome and very clean......... the people at the front desk were unbelievably nice and very helpful.......... OK the continental breakfast was just as expected but if you're looking for a full buffet try moving up to a four star hotel......... I personally cannot afford $300-400 per night for a room I'm only going to use a few hours per day, so I think I'll stick to the Rodeway on my next visit to Hershey.
Rodeway Inn a great place to stay!
We stayed at the Rodeway Inn on our trip to Hershey Park. We found the hotel clean and the staff friendly. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood just behind the park (within walking distance > 1 mile). Breakfast was light, but enough to get us started on a busy day. We travel to Hershey from NJ every summer for a 2-day trip - the Rodeway Inn is as nice as any hotel we've stayed in. We'll be back next year.
Not as Nice as Expected
I must say that I was disappointed with this hotel. Although very clean, it was definitely not worth the $217.00 I paid for a night! It was old, and the person at the front desk was not helpful or friendly. And the continental breakfast was a joke. The toaster was antiquated, and there was only one type of milk to chose for my cereal. And, there was no fruit. If I ever went back to Hershey, I would go off-season and stay at The Hotel Hershey for not very much more.
Don't stay at the Rodeway!!!
Our stay at the rodeway was disgusting. I researched all the hotels in Hershey & finally chose this one because of all the great reviews on this site. Unfortunately the room that we stayed in (Room 112) was disgusting. There were gnat-like bugs in the bathroom that nested in a hole in the bathtub. In addition to that, the room was very dirty & I was so uncomfortable the whole trip. My 1 year old daughter was with us so you can imagine how upset I was at how this room was.
My advice is to splurge & stay at one of the Hershey hotels. The amount of money you save is not worth dealing with these disgusting accomodations. We would have checked out early but the Herhey Hotels were booked & everywhere else is also a motel-like place so we thought we might have similar problems at other places.
Loved the Rodeway
We stayed at the Rodeway last weekend and thought it was the the nicest place that we had stayed in recently , very well appointed and peaceful , We are looking forward to a return visit in the future
Loved everything about Hershey
My brother and I went to Hershey for a brother-sister trip in May '04. We are both in our twenties. We had the very best time there.
We stayed at the Rodeway Inn & Suites. The experiance there was one of the best parts of the trip. When I made the reservation online they sent me info on the hotel and what comes in our room plus info on Hershey Park. We were able to check in little before 2pm. We arrived to Hershey early and went to the park and then checked into the hotel took a dip in the heated pool and went back to the back.
Hershey park was also awesome we were there for two days so we got the two day pass. It saved us about $20 a piece and we didn't have to save money to go the second day. The rides were awesome and we had great time. It was great brother-sister bonding time. Recommend it for anyone special if they want a great bonding time with someone.
Great time at the Rodeway
Just stayed at the Rodeway Inn on Hershey. We have been to Hershey many times, but this was our first trip to Hershey in the fall. Our hotel choice was based on having a need for an indoor pool, as well as being located close to Hershey Park. The rooms at the Rodeway are very basic...in fact when I first saw the place I was a little disappointed, as it is really nothing more than a polished Mom and Pop kind of motel. The room smelled a little musty at first, and the room itself was small with 2 double beds that looked like I was going to have a terrible night sleep. However, I was pleasantly surpised by the actual comfort of the beds, the cleanliness of the room, and the pool here is great! The rooms itself are motel style, and include a fridge and microwave. The place is small enough, so our kids would walk back and forth to the room from the pool area, and still be in our view. The breakfast they give is basic....bagels and cereal. I wish they had offered some fruit. All in all, it turned out to be a great stay with friendly staff that was always available help. The owner actually sits behind the front desk during the day, and is so verbally proud of his motel, that it really gave a great personal and family touch to the stay. We would stay here again.
This was a nice place and a great value. THe pool was very refreshing and the free cont. breakfast was very nice. The only complaint is the comfort of the beds. The mattresses seem old and lumpy. The sheets didn't fit the bed. Other than that, the quietness of the location makes this place the place to stay.
THE BEST HOTEL WITH A GREAT PRICE!
The Rodeway Inn & Suites at Hershey is a great hotel. It is in a residental neighborhood, so there is no traffic noise. The cooridors are outdoors, so you can get to your car in a flash while feeling safe. The rooms are great. Some even have kitchenettes. The innkeeper was very friendly. He even gave my grandmother a free pass to HERSHEYPARK! The pool is very clean and the FREE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST is great when you are on the go, or just want to relax. Overall, this RODEWAY INN is great. I always stay at a CHOICE HOTEL!
A Real Delight - The Best in Hershey
The Hershey Rodeway Inn is our only choice after staying at quite a few Hershey hotels over the years. Service is wonderful. Accommodations are always clean. The Inn is totally non-smoking and a very short drive to the Park. Having two teenage boys, the free continental breakfast is a definite plus before heading out to the park. We always end the day with a dip in the indoor pool. There is also an antique mall closeby. For the amenities and value this sure beats any of our stays at the higher priced Hershey hotels.

4 hrs, 6.5 kms Day totals: 15 hrs, 36.5 kms walk along busy Cameron street, with the rail line to my right and a sheer stone wall to my left. Kind of a dreary feel despite this being a river walk.
