They went above and beyond to accommodate my stay which was of 2 nights. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Its very close to Dorney Park, some people even walked to the park. The staff is friendly and attentive. Will probably stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights and even with a quiet time effective as of 9 pm, as posted in the hotel it definitely WAS NOT quiet! Our first night there we had people yelling in the hallways, slamming doors and dogs barking until after 3am! When my husband went to the desk to say something about it the person... More
