Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    Cheap and crappy room! Pool was ice cold and hot tub was dirty! Room was old looking! Needs lots of updating! Will never stay their again!

  • Older travelers

    Poor breakfast, very dated decor, smelly hallways, bad coffee!

  • Couple

    Thought the price was a bit high with the construction that.woke us up and all.

  • Group of friends

    Staff was friendly,the only downer was they refused to give me a reciept after checkout..Was told it was a 3rd party,when in fact I went directly with Question the charge on my card,.it was way over the charge I booked it for.

    Their "reciept" practices,and charges!

  • Family with children

    The carpets in the room was old ,dirty and smelling. The breakfast offered was limited and poor...

  • Family with children

    The staff was as helpful as possible when screwed up our reservations, however we did still have to pay an extra fee to move to the right room.

    The location is on a one-way street and can be annoying. We had a smoking room, and it was very smokey, even for me, and I'm a smoker.

  • Couple

    Very good location, just 1 mile away to Dorney park, and Corss steer have many restaurant we can chose.

  • Family with children

    Location of this hotel was ideal. We were attending an event at the stadium in Allentown and it was very convenient...3 Or 4 miles if that far...

    If you can't put out a decent breakfast, don't bother offering it as it only becomes a negative. When paying 100 for a hotel you expect something more than cereal and mini muffins and coffee...

  • Family with children

    We liked the price.

    They should had more some protein at breakfast. it was all carbs. even if they had yogurt or boiled eggs would have made a big difference. The pool was highly chlorinated and i was unable swim in that and the hot tub because it burnt my eyes and my throat. we also did not like that it was on a one way street.

  • Family with children

    There was not one thing I or my family enjoyed about this hotel. The place was dirty and old. I read through that the hotel was renovated in 2009, however, when I asked about this, I was told that my section had not been. When choosing this hotel, I had to look for a pet friendly hotel which I paid $25.00 extra for per night. For 25.00, the rugs should have been clean which they were filthy. I did not choose the cheapest hotel on your booking service (I paid 250.00 plus to stay there). I checked for bed bugs because I was afraid this hotel might have them. I cannot say one good thing and if I had the option to go somewhere else, I would have. Kathy Ciervo

    I put my answer in the wrong space See above TERRIBLE DISGUSTING & THE WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER STAYED AT. !!!

  • Older travelers

    Everything, it was practically falling down. There were ceiling tiles missing over by the ice machine on the first floor. The ice machine had a make-shift wooden door with a lock on it (???). The rooms were dated and not very clean. We only stopped over on our way to another destination, but to do that again, I would pay the extra money and stay somewhere else.

  • Family with children

    It was very close to Dorney Park which was good.

    The showers leaked all over the floor and I slipped and fell on floor. My mom also almost slipped. Very dangerous the way the shower/bathroom is. My son layed on the floor instead of the bed and had to go to MD for breathing treatments r/t dust and dirt on floor. Unclean room.

  • Family with children

    Went to Dorney Park and it was very convenient location and the price was right. Also had a pool and a jacuzzi which was nice.

  • Family with children

    i enjoyed the location of the hotel

    the room stunk really bad and so didnt the hallway i was expecting more of a cleanier hotel for the money i spent the bathroom in lobby by pool had poop on the floor and all over the toilet.

  • Single

    The staff was nice and room was good

    The only downside the I didn't had mobile phone reception in my room
