Whenever I decide that my family and I will go to an amusement park, I start to search for a hotel that is as close as possible to it. The last thing we want to do is waste time in a car the day of the actual activity.

Visiting Hershey Park was no exception.

In this case Days Inn Hershey was the top choice.

I didn’t consider Hershey Resort because I knew that we weren’t going to have the time to enjoy the full resort experience. We would just get there at night, spend the next day at the park and leave. I also compared the prices and distances from the park and Days Inn Hershey sounded  better all the way around.


Our Stay at the Days Inn Hershey

TMOM disclosure graphicThe hotel had an amazing welcome prepared for us. Chocolates galore! At first I thought it would be trouble with my boys. I didn’t want my boys so high on chocolate that I would want to jump out the window. However, in the end, I made it work to my advantage. I bribed them to behave well by promising chocolate.

The biggest reward that this hotel offered us was the view from the window. We were able to actually see the park and all its attractions. It almost felt like we could touch it. This was my best bargaining tool. And it worked wonderfully.

One thing that was a big plus was that breakfast was included.Traveling with kids, once you leave the hotel, any distraction or detour from the park can cause major drama. That’s why eating breakfast before leaving the hotel was such a cool feature for me.

If you ask me, the whole deal was super convenient. Everything about this hotel worked for us.

Something that I find important to mention is that breakfast is buffet style. And can get a bit chaotic. So try to get there as early as you can or as close of finishing time.

In conclusion, I loved the hotel. It was the best one I could have picked for my family’s stay. The beds were comfy, breakfast was tasty and it is at a perfect distance from the park.

They even have free shuttle to and from the park, so you can forget all about parking fees.
