Yes, this is a Holiday Inn Express, but it's a higher-priced model due to its proximity to Hershey attractions as well as the state capital. At least the front desk staff were friendly and very helpful and our rooms were clean. Another kudo was for the a/c system which was very quiet and had a fan which would run all... More

We had a great experience visiting this hotel. I was blown away by how sweet and accommodating Christine was. I brought my little dog with me. The front desk person even gave him a treat. I would definitely stay there again!

Hotel needs some updating . Although adequate to sleep over for one night, the carpeting seemed like it needed some refreshing . The security door on the right side of the hotel didn't lock.

I thought for the price, the hotel was quite nice. Our rooms were updated recently I thought. Things were clean. Had a nice eating area in the center of the hotel. The staff was very nice. Nice location near the interstate. There's a Panera close by also.
