... before Hershey. The GPS lead us to Palmyra (north of Hershey) - Gabrielle had put in the address of the steakhouse instead of the butterfly gardens. The rain stopped so we decided to have lunch at the Hometown Family Restaurant in Palmyra before going on to the Butterfly gardens.
I had shrimp bisque and a crab cake sandwich, Marie had beef and veg soup and a plain Jane burger, Gabrielle had the bisque and plain Jane, Chey spaghetti and meatball ...
What was written in our itinerary as a night in Baltimore turned into an unexpected overnight stop in Lancaster, PA. I have cousins from Grayslake who moved out west when their dad (my Papa Wes's brother) was transferred that way to work. Jeff and Ann, my dad’s cousins, reached out to us when they heard we were traveling the east coast and we are very happy they did! Blake and I did a quick 2hr stop in Philly on our way to Lancaster where ...
Enjoying the morning with Uncle Dee. After a great breakfast at Bob Evans needed to run off some sausage gravy. Had a blast at the Army Heritage Museum running through the barracks and talking to soldiers. It was amazing. Porter "my favorite thing was talking the soldiers" (he had great questions too) Natalie: " my favorite thing was comparing the barracks; civil war and current time" Brooke:"lookin' at the houses" Now back to the ...
A stop in Boiling Springs to see Uncle Dee. Some duck feeding and early Birthday presents. I am exhausted. I'm just happy not to be moving furniture or packing boxes. Uneventful trip so far. Traffic wasn't bad at all. We will see what tomorrow will bring. Good ...

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
