Everybody's definition of "good" will vary, so I suggest you take a few minutes and look at the list and decide which of those will work for you.
Would you like me to book the room for you too ;) - I'll just need a major credit card number...
Anyways, it is still the closest park to me, for good or bad, and a season pass is cheap. Cheap thrills? ;) Dorney is just a bit more then an hour away, Hershey two, and Knoebels just under three. Yeah, your right, how can is compete. Also, that Clementon coaster is looking to shape up into one great ride. I only hope it runs as good as it looks.
Most of the time I'm with you all and a big advocate of the "search" features the internet offers, but in this case, I think it's a vaild question.
I agree, which is why this didn't get the standard "look at the sticky travel thread" and close reply. SFGAdv is one of the hardest parks when it comes to finding a hotel.
woah listen i already been to the site, jerk offs
Whoa. You only got two smart ass responses and the way you worded that seems to imply you're including mine. I offered legitimate help.
i meant by "good" close, because all the ones on the site are like 20 mi. away i was wondering if there are any around the park, or right near it
Then why didn't you say that in the first place? To most people a 'good' hotel is one that's clean and nice - not close. How do you expect to get a reply without asking what you mean? Also, if you visited the SF site and saw that all the hotels were 15 to 20 miles away at the closest, wouldn't you think those would be it? Why would SF suggest their guests say 15 minutes from the park when there's a hotel across the street?
if there isnt any why not
Because no one in their right mind travels that far (more than a day trip) to visit SFGAdv? ;)
take it easy with the sarcasm and general meaness. just give the guy an answer and don't give him crap.
Only two people in 13 replies did - don't even start.
I've been to SFGAdv 3 times. The first time we stopped by after doing Morey's and stayed in Wildwood the night before, driving to the park in the morning. The second time we were coming from SFA and stayed at a Hampton Inn (I believe it was the one in Burlington/Mt Holly) - I didn't think the hotel was bad at all and I'm a big time hotel snob. Their rates are currently running about $119 a night. The third time we just drove in in the morning and drove home that night.
A little hotel trick we often use it to arrive late. If you're driving between parks always try to drive to the next hotel the night before. If the hotel isn't sold out, they tend to want to sell rooms to walk-ins. What this means is the room you wanted has been given away. Bad, right? No. If the hotel is worth staying at in the first place, you'll get bumped up, not down. That Hampton is one of the places this worked at. We showed up around 11pm and were put in a suite for the price we booked our regular room at.
Of course at hotels that suck, it's possible to get bumped down to a worse room (sometimes one that won't work for you) or the hotel may sell out assuming you're not showing and you'll get walked to another nearby hotel. It's kind of a gamble, but you're generally safe if you're staying at anything above an "a place to sleep" type crap ass hotel.
Anyway, there are no hotels closer than that to SFGAdv. As to why, I honestly think that given SFGAdv's location - the hotel wouldn't be worth it. It'd kick ass during the summer, but be empty during the off season months. It's probably not a smart business decision. The hotels that are closest are also near other areas that can support a hotel year round.

what is up is no one wants to put a hotel where there is nothing but 1 amusement park and 1 outlet shopping center.. hence off season no business
I don't know if that would be the reason. You see plenty of hotels out the middle of nowhere.
An of example of 1 seasonal amusement park and 1 outlet mall with plenty of hotels surrounding them are SFGAm and Gurnee Mills.
