Bottom Line

The budget Comfort Inn at the Park offers vacationing families and other travelers a solid overall value in a convenient location near Hershey’s most popular attractions. The property's free hot breakfast includes eggs and meat, and coffee and tea are free all day. The hotel is cheerful and well maintained, with a spacious heated indoor pool and guest laundry facilities. Its 125 rooms are attractive and spacious, and many (but not all) include microwaves and mini-fridges. Family suites offer three beds and bathrooms that are larger than those in standard rooms, which are rather small. Rates are attractive but local hotels often fill up in peak season, so it’s good to have a backup. The budget Best Western Hershey Inn is a viable alternative that’s also convenient to most attractions.

Oyster Hotel Review

Comfort Inn at the Park


Family-oriented hotel in a quiet setting by a pond

The Comfort Inn at the Park is just a couple of minutes away from busy West Chocolate Avenue, but its quiet, leafy setting makes it feel much farther. Housed in a tidy red brick building, the hotel bumps up against a small duck pond that's a highlight for guests, especially children. (A vending machine by the waterfront sells duck feed.) Inside, the mood is equally peaceful, with a blue-sky ceiling mural greeting guests as they enter the lobby. Shiny black granite floor tiles and nice wood paneling and columns frame the front desk. The breakfast area that is surrounded by more wood paneling and columns that give it a slightly elegant look. But beige tile floors and granite counters provide a practical foundation. It's spacious, but it can get crowded during peak times, especially in the high tourist season when families flock to this hotel for its convenient location and good overall value.

By busy West Chocolate Avenue, a seven-minute drive to downtown Hershey

The hotel is located on a quiet street just off busy West Chocolate Avenue, about a five-minute drive to the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. A shopping plaza with a grocery and pharmacy is a four-minute walk, and a few restaurants are a three-minute walk. Several other restaurants are within several minutes of walking or only two minutes or so by car. Downtown Hershey, ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park, and Hersheypark Stadium are seven or eight minutes by car. Other major attractions including The Hotel Hershey, Hershey Gardens, Hershey’s Chocolate World, and Tanger Outlet Hershey are approximately eight minutes away by car. The Amtrak Station in Middletown is about 15 minutes away by car, and the Harrisburg International Airport can be reach in approximately 20 minutes. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is about a 10-minute drive away.

Clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated, but with small bathrooms

Guest rooms at the Comfort Inn at the Park are tastefully decorated, although the motif is a bit dark and decor is unsurprising. Earth-toned, striped carpet; white walls; and clay-colored accent walls give a mostly beige/brown backdrop. Tan bedding is topped with burnt-orange bed runners, and drapes are solid beige. But framed contemporary art and photos add much-needed splashes of color. Matching, reddish-brown wood furniture includes dressers, desks, nightstands, and headboards. Light brown upholstered armchairs and black office chairs on casters supply seating, and some One Queen Rooms have sleeper sofas paired with coffee tables. Standard room amenities include laptop-capable safes, coffeemakers, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Many guests have commented favorably on the comfort of the beds as well. Bathrooms aren't as spacious or nicely finished as the bedrooms. Tan granite vanity sinks are placed outside the bathrooms, which have beige tile floors and acrylic shower/tub inserts. Family suites have three queens in two bedrooms and larger bathrooms. Microwaves and mini-fridges are available for a slight upgrade in room rates.

Spacious heated indoor pool and freebies such as hot breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking

Features at Comfort Inn at the Park aren't extensive, but they add to the hotel's value and family appeal. The heated indoor pool is quite spacious, but there are no lounge chairs or whirlpool features. Free newspapers are on hand in the lobby on weekdays, and free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are available all day. The hotel also provides a free hot breakfast, which includes eggs, meat, and make-your-own waffles. But there are no lunch or dinner options on-site. Meeting space is available for up to 60 people, and a computer station with Internet access is located in the lobby for guest use. Free Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the property. Guests receive free passes to a local fitness facility that is nearby, but the hotel itself has no fitness center or exercise equipment. Laundry facilities are on-site, and valet dry cleaning and laundry services are offered. Ample free parking surrounds the hotel on its surface lot. A small pond adjoins the hotel parking lot, and guests can feed the numerous ducks from a coin-operated feed machine supplied by the hotel. Pets are not allowed at the hotel.
