There is one in Manheim, about 20 minutes away, and it looks like it has much better reviews

I actually just booked at the Country Inn and Suites. What did you find out about it?
I'm quoting 2 recent reviews on Tripadvisor .

Oh and when u check in they ask u which Minyan you want a wake up call for :)

I'm talking about the one by Dutch Wonderland I think there is another one by the Milk Farm.

Anyone plan on being in the Hershey park area 9/4-9/5?

Maybe we can hook up for minyanim, we will probably be 5 men.
You can post it on godaven.com under temp minyan.

The shul in Lancaster davens at 7am + 1/2 hour drive from our hotel = not my idea of a vacation getting up at 6am  ;D

Looking to arrange somethin at a more civilized hour...
On Monday 08/22 there was a minyan at 8 and at 8:30 at the shul. I know that's not late enough to be considered civilized :) but its getting there.

But then there's the drive

just spoke to a friend that was there, he said that if you go down in the lobby of the hotel it looks like a big shul with minyunim every 15 min  :)

I'm not sure what hotel he was, I can try to reach him and ask him,
