This was a very entertaining as well as an educational experience. Mr. Hershey’s story is one of true inspiration. The staff was very friendly and courteous. This is a must if you visit Hershey.

We stayed in the Holiday Inn located in Hummelstown just outside Hershey. Was a very nice, clean hotel. Was around $150 per night.
