This property was a pleasant surprise. The value is about as good as you are going to get. I stayed one night on business. Only changed hotels as the rate went above other properties close by and equivalent for weekend and I was on tight work budget. The staff was friendly and helpful. The check in process easy.

My 13 year old son was attending an event at Hershey Park with his string orchestra and we decided to make a weekend out of the event. We used Priceline to name our own price and landed the Best Western Premier by luck! The indoor pool & arcade was a hit with our young teens while the attached Irish Pub...

Our family of 4 stayed comfortably an entire week. My boys (10 and 13) appreciated having their own beds and my husband and I appreciated having our own room. The hotel is clean and much more reasonably priced than hotels in Hershey proper. It is only a 15-20 minute drive to Hershey attractions. The room was also nice and cool...

We stayed a weekend, as we were for big event in Hershey. It's about 15 minutes from Hershey. Stayed on the 1st floor, with windows/door going out to pool. Every time we open the door to pool the crazy loud alarm would go off, and it will be going on till you close the door. It's great with little kids,...

This hotel is good for out of town guests, receptions, meetings and other events. The rooms are very clean, and updated, and the staff is pleasant. It is very convenient to the local Interstate (83) so it is an easy on/off. There are also other restaurants very close as well as grocery stores and some other shops.
