Thinking about visiting Hersheypark? You do not want to miss the benefits of staying at the Hershey Lodge. With free park perks, delicious food, and activities for the whole family, the Hershey Lodge is a must for your next trip to Hershey!
I was invited by Hershey for the weekend to experience their properties. All opinions are my own.
1. Hershey's Water Works
Year-round fun to be had in this expansive indoor pool! This waterpark is exclusive to guests staying in the Hershey Lodge. It is attached to the Lodge so you can enter through the building or from the outside using your room key.
I wanted to stay and play in here but I didn't get the chance. So you know we have to go back!
2. The Food
Choose from 6 locations to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a drink. The Hershey Lodge features the Hershey Grill, The Forebay, The Bears' Den, Cocoa Beanery, Coco Cabana, and the newest restaurant Fire & Grain.
Fire & Grain was by far my favorite during my stay at Hershey Lodge. You have to get the philly cheesesteak flat bread and the bacon macaroni and cheese. These pictures do not do it justice!
They pair well with this White Cosmo. Yum.
What is a good dinner without dessert? The S'mores Jar or the Sticky Bread. Whatever you choose, it's the right one.
3. Free Resort Perks
There are many benefits that are included with your stay at Hershey Lodge.
The room was very spacious, it had a coffee maker, and complimentary in-room WiFi. So basically everything I need to live. Coffee and Wifi!
Connect to your in-room wifi and stream your favorite shows or movies from your phone onto the TV!
Also included in your stay:

4. Hersheypark Benefits
Staying at the Hershey Lodge not only give you access to so many things on site, but also boosts your Hersheypark experience.

I’ve never visited Hershey Park but when I do, I plan to stay at Hershey Lodge. That food looks delicious and the kids would love the water park.
Yes, it is my dream to go to Hershey. Chocolate is one of my favorite things, so I know I’d love it here. One day we hope to make it up there! Fingers crossed.
Your trip looks amazing. I never visited Hershey Park before. This looks like a wonderful experience to go on with the family.
This place is definitely on our list to travel too. We have not been there yet and it looks like it from us to go. Besides the fact there’s a lot of chocolate, the other food alone looks delicious.
I so want to go and stay at Hershey’s Lodge I mean how amazing does it sound! I am loving the water park and oh that food! YUM!
Hershey Lodge is on my road trip bucket list. The chocolate lover in me and the theme park lover in me are definitely agree on this. I bet the dessert selection was probably one of the hardest choices you had to make during your stay.
Hershey Park looks like so much fun! This could be the year we go. Your food pictures makes me want to book our trip right now. I guess the kids would like it, too 😉
Goodness gracious that food caught my eye right away. I love staying in beautiful places like this where I can relax and find good food. I’ve never been to Hershey Lodg but I’ve heard a lot about it and would love to visit one day.

Indoor water parks are so much fun for the kids. We went to a few over the last year and the kids always have a blast. Hershey Lodge looks like a great destinatoin.
the hershey lodge is now on my must do list. this looks like such a great place for the kids and parents alike. that is some pretty delicious looking food too.
This lodge looks and sounds as if you are stepping into another world. I love family-friendly locations. Nowadays it can be hard to find an honest place to have fun like this one. Thank you
Holy cow! I never knew that Hershey had a lodge, and with a fun pool and nice food. I was thinking about planning a trip that way this summer – I am showing my husband this article now
We were gonna stay there during our visit but they were fully booked! I took some pictures of their outdoor view when we drove by.
I think it’s a lovely decision to stay here especially if you have the kids with you. They’re going to love all the perks that comes with it especially that water park. It’s just all so worth it and it’s going to make your vacation even more memorable.
I loved Hershey when I went. The Hershey Lodge is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting the park.
I have always wanted to take the kiddos there. Maybe we will make it this Summer, it looks like so much fun.
Oh wow, I want to head there right now. That Smores drink and the indoor water park look like our kinda fun!
For avid golfers, the courses in Hershey are surprisingly good. The East Course especially is as good as many top golf resorts. They also have a 9 hole course that is great for families or novice golfers.
