Historical Traveler Reviews White Rose Motel Hershey
Clean rooms at the White Rose
My husband and two childen stayed at the White Rose August 29th and 30th 2004. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms. The Motel was centrally located and a short drive to Hershey Park. The room served its purpose i.e to provide a clean place to shower and sleep. Under most circumstances, if you are going to Hershey Park you will be out of the room from breakfast and returning again sometime after dinner.
Knowing that we had a clean room and bed was comforting.
We would stay there again when we return to Hershey.
Very good value
Our family of four stayed at the White Rose Motel last weekend after a day at Hershey Park, before heading to the Strasburg Railroad in PA's Amish Country the following morning. As reported in these reviews and on the motel's own site, they obviously are proud of the cleanliness of their property. Our room itself was fairly standard in terms of what you might expect from a motel in terms of size and amenities, but it was very clean - a very important consideration for motel stays. The owner's daughter, who checked us in during the early evening, was very friendly and helpful. She walked us to a table with several menus from local restaurants and provided other helpful information for our short stay. The pool was nice and also clean, with fresh towels provided poolside. Fresh coffee was provided in the morning (albeit only with caf - I would suggest providing decaf). While some might think $99 is high for a motel room, it was a good value when compared to prices of other hotels in the area (frankly, I think most, if not all, of the hotel/motels in the Hershey and Lancaster area are very overpriced - Hershey is fun to visit, but it is very small and certainly no Orlando-type destination as they appear to believe they are!). In sum, we had a nice stay and would likely choose it again were we to stay in that area.
Great place to stay
My wife and I stayed in this wonderful motel. It was very clean and the staff could not have been more help with info on places to eat and go to do things and shop. We loved it so much that we made reservations for this coming weekend to bring our grandchildren. Great job..
My family (husband, myself and two teenaged daughters) just returned from a 2-night stay at the White Rose. We were very happy with our accommodations. Our room was immaculate, with two comfortable beds, a microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker, TV. While located on a main road, the pool is surrounded by a flower garden, giving it privacy. The location of the motel is close to Hershey attractions. The staff was very helpful in giving us suggestions for local sites.
It met our needs and we would definitely go back again.
Not worth it!!!
I reserved three nights at the White Rose. When I pulled up to the hotel, I immediately felt the rate charged ($119 per night) was overpriced for the type of motel it is. When I went up to the second level where our room was located, I walked up what felt like a rusty old fire escape (open metal stairs). A month earlier I stayed at a four star hotel in Montreal for less! When I told the older woman (owner) that I was considering cancelling my reservation, she first advised me that their refund policy was that I was obligated to pay for the three nights even if I didnt stay there. I expressed that I understood there might be a small cancellation fee, but not a 100% fee for the three nights. Their policy was not like any other hotel I have ever stayed in (i.e., in Chicago, New York, Boston, Florida, etc.) where if one decides to shorten their stay there is no charge. She and her daughters were not the least bit accommodating during our initial discussion. Later she came to my room and said she spoke to her daughters and had reconsidered and didnt want me to stay if I was unhappy. To her credit she waived her policy (thought she tried to have me pay half) and did not charge me for the three nights. We did not stay there, but went across the street to the Hershey Fairway Motel ($75 per night). The room was clean and was slightly smaller with double beds rather than queen size beds. They had a great indoor pool. The newer building second level has a great view of the "fairway" rather than overlooking a parking lot. I am glad I switched. When I checked around to a number of other independently owned motels on Chocolate Avenue most were in the $75-100 range per night (during summer season).
We have a three day cancellation policy. All changes to, or cancellations, need to be made within this alloted time. This is verbally stated to all who make reservations and also is reinforced in the form of a written confirmation.
We believe our price is very reasonable considering all our rooms have refrigerators, microwaves, hairdryers, refrigerators, and 27" tvs. And, all our rooms are VERY clean. Our property is spotless and well maintained because we take great pride in it.
As for the metal steps, take it up with the Hershey Fire Dept and/or the Twp. Building Codes Dept. Metal is required for safety purposes.

We decided to allow him to leave because he would be happier elsewhere and we would be happier with him elsewhere.
Who needs Hotel Hershey???
My wife and two children absolutely enjoyed this comfortable and clean hotel. We booked the cottage which is right behind the main rooms.
For $175/night, we had our own kitchen, two big bedrooms, and a big bathroom to enjoy. Oh, not to mention, a beautiful porch and outdoor pool.
Why stay at Hotel Hershey for $300+/night? The staff was very polite and made our stay extremely pleasant.
Hersheypark, the gardens, Indian Echo Caverns, Outlets, food establishments, etc, were all close by.
A great value for families!!!
Loved Shirley and Her Family!!!
I really loved this quaint motel, 1 mile from the park. A lot of homey details, stenciled flowers painted on the walls,sunflowers and other plants, that they obviously planted themselves, surrounded the pool area. Rooms were super clean! The whole family was so friendly. If the wind blows just right you can smell the chocolate in the air!
Very clean, well kept motel. The owner is very friendly and helpful. She had great recommendations on restaurants. Great value for the price, definately better than any cookie cutter chain hotels.
Excellent place to stay in Hershey
Excellent value, great rates, extremely clean, attractive & well maintained. Very quiet & comfortable. Very courteous helpful staff. Convenient location. Will look forward to returning!

... at Strasburg, a charming and fascinating place to visit. In one case, the name of one of their towns is likely to raise an eyebrow, even in liberal society; the town is called Intercourse. There was no time for Intercourse today, nor the other towns. Some of the other names are unusual too: Lititz, New Holland, and, a personal favourite: Bird in Hand. Still, we enjoyed people-watching, or ...
... Mennonites and Amish. Not cheap and not very authentic. Had chicken and corn soup for lunch. Was $3:99 but then they add tax. Was good. After a look around it was time to head to Washington, Maryland. Straight to Omni Shoreham the hotel. I am not going on tonight's excursion for dinner and to look at Washington DC. Hotel is far from the city so will just go far a walk ...

Have to ask for cappuccino or get filter coffee and creamer, which isn't even a dairy product. Muffin was good though. All on bus nice and early and had to go to Duty Free to pick up peoples purchases before crossing boarder. Poms all bought alcohol. Not worth carrying around, would get broken. They ...

We decided to leave the umbrellas in the car because it had stopped raining, but that turned out to be a bad decision. We got rained on off and on in the Gardens. The Hershey Gardens were a gift from Milton Hershey to the town and built in honor of his wife, Catherine. Now at 23 acres, it houses a Butterfly House, Children’s Garden, Rose Garden, Japanese Garden and many ...

We saw other vans like ours and there were even small school buses. No problem!
