SpringHill Suites Hershey
Travel Blogs from Hershey
We didn't leave Bville until around 11am, but we still made a quick stop at the United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) and managed to explore the inside exhibits for about an hour. Zach and I found this place about a year ago as outside trail plainly visible from 81. We were on our way to Whispering Pines, NC. So, on a very hot day as I recall, on our way back home, we stopped and walked the outside trail with Maui. I always said we would get to ...

Anyways... I'm definitely still counting Hershey as a town. When I'm still a couple miles away, I'm greeted by a welcoming sight: a bike trail right through ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Hershey
The hotel is located minutes from Hershey Park. The room was really not a suite but a large room with a half wall separating the living area from the beds. Breakfast was good but very crowded after 9:00 am. Would stay again
Nice hotel...would stay again.
Spent 2 nights at the Springhill Suites in Hershey. Close drive to Hershey attractions yet located in a quiet area. Room was nice with 2 queen comfortable beds and separate livingroom area. TV in livingroom and bedroom area. Nice kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. Hotel continental breakfast was great, yet a little crowded and depending on time you go may be hard to find a seat in the dining area. Pool was nice, but chilly. Several guests asked for the temperature to be turned up, but didn't happen during our stay. Jacuzzi was nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would choose this hotel again.
Very pleased when the Springhill staff was very accomodating in allow us to check in early! These SUITE accomodations were very clean and spacious. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the Hershey area.
Great location for visiting Hersheypark
We stayed for 3 nights with a family of 5. We found the 2 queen bed suite with sofa sleeper and 2 tvs to be great space for us. Additionally, the extended continental breakfast and fridge/microwave in-room were good for a family. The room had a large bathroom and all the usual items for a nice hotel chain. There wasn't anything particularly fancy, but it was clean enough and priced well for a busy holiday time, though we did reserve 60 days or so in advance for the better rates. They do give AAA discounts. Try it - it was a great location for going to Hersheypark and Chocolate World, in addition to easy access off I-81.
Nice place to stay
We went to Hershey back in July 2004. We were there for 3 nights. I am funny about where I lay my head at night. We booked this place and I was very pleased. The room was very clean. The only thing about the room was it was not very big. It has a living space with a couch, chair with ottoman, and tv as well as a desk, microwave and small refrigerator. The bedroom area was a bit small as far as being able to move around. We did not eat the continental breakfast. We actually bought 1/2 gallon of milk and cereal and ate in the room. The front desk staff was very friendly when we had questions. We used the pool once. It is small, but a clean area. They have 1 washer and 1 drier on the 1st floor. We were on the 3rd floor and it made it a bit hard to use the facilities. The hotel is conveinantly located to all area attractions especially the amusement park, chocolate factory and stores. Our family loved staying there and if we go back to PA, we will definitely be booking a room there again.
It's Hershey, what do you expect
It's beyond me why Marriot doesn't put a full service hotel in the area for idiots like me who will pay for it. We've been going to Hershey for 6 years now and have never found a hotel we would stay in twice. Hotel Hershey is way to stuffy for my kids, and everything else is like being packed into a sardine can. The Hershey Lodge made us get two rooms because we have 3 kids plus me & my wife. That was a small fortune to say the least, and for 2 star accomodations.
The Spring Hill Suites was very clean but no frills. It ran us about $230 a night but we checked out a day early because it rained and cabin fever kicked on within minutes. The room are not suites by any stretch of the imagination. The layout is insane and the air-conditioner blows directly on the bed which is push up against the unit. I dunno, we slept five in the room but it was crammed. It is about 1 1/2 miles from the park so the location was good. Don't get excited about the continental breakfast, you would think it was the line at a soup kitchen. We ended up at Bob Evans every morning. (Explain this, IHOP went out of business last year!)
If I had to return to Hershey, I probably wouldn't stay here, but it isn't the hotels fault. They give you what they say they are giving you - 2 1/2 star accomadations with a postage stamp for a pool. You won't find much better in Hershey which is why I gave it an above average rating when compared to the hotels we've stayed in the past.
We always seem to go back!
We go to HersheyPark every year and always seem to end up at this hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, the kids love the indoor pool and the continental b'fast is better then most.
We will return in a couple of weeks!
This is the second time in 3 years we stayed at this hotel. The first time the hotel was just one year old and we had an excellent stay. This time was just about average. The staff was nice, but I knew more about hershey attractions than they did. The reservation was made 4 months in advance and booked at a discounted rate. When we arrived we were charged the current rate that was alot higher. At first they would not make an adjustment until a senior staff member who was going off duty overheard and steped in an varified the discount rate was indeed correct at the time of booking. The indoor pool was freezing, so the kids weren't able to swim. Instead we went back to the room and payed($7.95) for the on tv room playstation and could only use it for 20 minutes until we were bumped off because to many other people in the hotel were using it. The front desk did credit us at check out. The hotel is clean and there is more space than the average hotel room. The breakfast has become very skimpy and not that great since our first stay. For the amount we payed , the stay wasn't worth it. We will trya nother place next time.
We just returned from a 2-night stay in the Springhill Suites of Hershey. Room was clean. Breakfast was consistent and satisfactory.
Good to have a little extra space, refrigerator and microwave, but not really a "suite" in that it was a single room with a partial divider between the sofa area and beds. Pool was small. Jacuzzi/hot tub in pool area appeared to be under-maintained (bottom looked dirty) and jets would not work. Fitness center adequate but small with only 1 bike, 1 treadmill, 1 stepper and 1 universal bench. Would stay there again, though for $200+/night, I expected slightly more.
We always go back there.
Me, husband, 11 and 15 year old love to stay at this hotel. Very close to Hershey, Outlets, good restaurants, winery, farms. The hotel and rooms are new and impeccable. Staff is very friendly. Indoor pool and whirlpool are small but almost always empty. Free breakfast (no sausages). This is a small hotel for quiet people who want to feel cozy and and have fun!
