It's been over 10 years since I been to either park. I stayed at Santa's Lodge with no issues, but tentatively planned for beginning of AUGUST and the room was like $150 a night, which seems kinda high for my cheap tastes. I see a slew of hotels that are around 15 miles away in Jasper, didn't know if anyone had any success there.
Last time at Hershey, I stayed at Spinners Inn. Again, no problems, enjoyed my stay. I see that Howard Johnson now owns it. Planned for the end of September to hit HP/Knoebels. Any other decent ones pop up over the years?
