Travel Blogs from Hershey
We finally got nasty weather today! Can't complain, it has been beautiful up to this point! Went to some train shops, an Amish farm, and antique shops today in Strasbourg. It rained all day, so we drove on up to Hershey. No internet, and can't transfer pictures from camera to phone .....so y'all will have to wait for the pics ... sorry
... could care about sustainability in other aspects of life (land development, transportation, federal deficit etc) as much as they care for their fishing ponds.
And then, I reach Hershey proper, where the rumble and the screams from the nearby Hersheypark can be heard around the center of the town. Nearby, a busload of senior citizens crowd into a theatre at 12 o'clock noon...
Yep... not your typical American Main Street.
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 ...
... an hour and a half just cruising the little towns near by. Found a town two over from here called Intercourse. I kid you not. It used to be called Cross Keys, but they changed it to Intercourse. The hottest selling item in the town is the 'I love Intercourse, PA' t-shirts. It did have me laughing for quite a while. I'm easily amused.
After our tour, we visited the local Pet Smart, for out doggie fix, and to ...
... smell in the air is the smell of horse ****. From the buggy horses dropping it all the time, to the natural fertilizer that the Amish use, the air is thick with dung. That's country living for you.
We have decided to do two nights here and have booked a tour of the Amish community for Monday Morning first thing. We have Monday and Tuesday already booked in Washington, and Friday booked for Savannah so we have a bit of driving to do Wednesday through to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Milton Motel Hershey
Try this place..you won't be sorry
I was hesitant to stay at a motel but the price was reasonable and it was very close to the park. The hotel was clean and our rooms were ready at 9am when we arrived after a 4 hour drive. The staff was very friendly and helpful and always cleaning. The room was small but the beds were fine and the mini-refrigerator and microwave came in handy. The pool was good and clean and my kids wanted to leave the park to go back to the pool. Highly recommend the restaurant Duke's right next door and the Palmdale Cafe across the street had awesome coffee and breakfast. Try this place, you won't be sorry. We're planning on returning next year
We travel quite a lot, and for the first time decided we would try a motel instead of a fancy, expensive chain hotel. We were not disappointed in the Milton Motel at all. We were surprised and amazed to find a very large, very clean room, complete with a microwave, mini fridge, and a dvd player. I had requested the fridge when I booked the room online, but really hadn't expected to have one available. We were given extra towels, clean sheets and extra pillows without hesitation. The staff gave us directions, sold discount amusement park tickets and we couldn't have asked for better service.
Don't book this motel...way overpriced!
This motel has the same price as a premium hotel with a tenth of the quality. Rooms are very small, staff was rude. Description on the web site is very deceptive. What a disappointment!
A very nice, clean, and respectable motel! The room was newly renovated and had a huge tv with a DVD player! I travel quite extensively and will most surely stay here again! Thanks!
Nice and Clean!
My husband and I stayed here during one of Hershey's car events. For the price($79) I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were a little small but they were very clean, including the bathroom. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot were great. There are two great restaurants just next door.
We were very happy with everything.The room was nice,and clean.The staff was very friendly and helpful.We liked it so much that we stayed an extra night.The room had a coffee pot ,a hair dryer ,even an iron and ironing board.You can't go wrong for the price.The complimentary Hershey chocolate bars at check-in is a nice touch.
Not what i expected.
i would like to start by saying that i booked it over the internet,well that was a big mistake.I reserveda room with two queen beds,i got a room with two double beds,if you can call them beds! the beds were old lumpy matresses.the sheets were stained!the arcade was a joke!i did not get any sleep,i was even debating going to sleep in my car!i spent $140.00 for nothing! the room was so small.the bathroom was so tiny.i would never recommend this place to anyone,not even my worse enemy!!!!!
Look at other options
The hotel is basic. Bathroom is tiny. Pool is quite small, as was the room. Beds were low quality, heat and A/C worked well. There are better alternatives.
Great Price, Clean Motel
The Motel was better than expected for the price.Two miles from Hershey attractions.Motel was very clean and in a nice area.Walking distance (next door) to GingerBread Man restuarant. I paid for a decent place for my family and I to sleep, and that's what I received.Did not see or use pool as our visit was in April.
So you reserve the suite with the patio and private access to the pool. Here is what you get. A view of the parking lot, across where there is the green pool behind the chain linked fence. The heated pool and the outdoor pool are the same pool. I hope you enjoy staring at car bumpers or someone unkept backyard. AHH don't forget the game room. Try 2 salvage arcade video consoles under the stairs next to the Ice machine. My kids went in turned around and left.
