Good things: The staff was extremely pleasant both at check-in and in the restaurant, the pool was decent and the outside hot tub was nice. The buffet was not inexpensive but was tasty.

This weekend will actually be our first time staying at the Red Lion, and we can't wait! Our middle son turned 12 a few weeks ago and this is what he has chosen to do with his birthday money - come to stay at your hotel and see the lights at Hershey Park, as well as going "museuming" in Harrisburg!...

I was out in the area on business and found this hotel to offer everything I needed. Their staff was kind and helpful. They also have an on site restaurant and bar with complimentary billiards. The wifi was rock solid when I needed to use it. Definitely a multi-functional place to stay.

Everything about this hotel was A+. The food was outstanding. Our group had multiple dinners in the banquet hall, along with breakfast each morning and lunches in the dinning room. Every staff member I came in contact with was very friendly, attentive and all around great. This was an overall excellent experience. Highly recommend.
