We were looking for a hotel in Allentown and it was very hard to find something available during a Drum and Bugle Corps competition. This was our best option, and it was way overpriced and far from the stadium. The entire property smelled like cigarettes and had very filthy and outdated decor. The room was supposed to be a suite,... More

I found myself and my children in need of a room at last minute this week. Kiarra, who was at the front desk, went above and beyond to help us out that night. She made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. The room was average, clean, tidy, and just what we needed to crash for the evening.... More

I've never posted any review before, but after staying at this hotel this week, I was compelled to do so. Upon entering the hallway, the overpowering smell of chlorine hits you. The 4 head shower was like having 4 people spitting on you. The noise from the floor above was incredible and that was just when they were walking. The... More

Desk clerk pleasant and helpful. Room clean although upon entrance too sweet smell of possible cleaning agent. Mattress comfortable. Room small. Furnishings good. Bathroom although clean tub looked dirty. Cheap towels and toilet paper. Not quality updating. No hot breakfast. Fortunately Perkins next door. Across from Dorney Park. We won't be back for the price.

This hotel was horrible. The door to the room would not lock properly, there was hair in the sink, and the room was suppose to be a nonsmoking room but it stunk of cigarette odor. To top it off, the air conditioner barely worked, we excessively noisy and kept going on and off every 10-15 minutes. The noise kept us... More

The hotel is in a nice location as far as restaurants, shopping. Lot's of parking. The staff is very nice. The rooms are not the greatest. Comfortable beds and pillows. When you get in the room you can smell a misty unpleasant odor. The included breakfast is left to be desired, coffee, orange and apple juice, some bagels with cream... More

Since this was our very first time to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom, our family didn't know what to expect after reading several reviews on this motel. However, we were pleasantly shocked by the Howard Johnson Inn and Suites because of the bargain you were getting for the money you spent. The rooms were very spacious and comfy with a... More
