This is the third worst hotel I've been to, ever. Upon entering the lobby you're hit with the overwhelming odor of chlorine, which runs throughout the entire hotel...thankfully, you don't smell it in the rooms. Once we entered the room it became apparent that my choice of hotel was not a good one. It was not clean, the microwave looked... More

We were looking for a nice place close to family in the Allentown area. We have a dog so there are challenges in this area, however, this hotel is old, dirty, has small rooms (we could hardly walk around in the king bed room as the bed took most of the room). Not only was the bath area dirty, you... More

The outside is a little run down in appearance. The room I got, matched the outside. Looked old, but the on the upside, it appeared clean and had no bad odors to go with it,That was a relief. The hotel is really close to Dorney Amusement/Water park, which if your going to, I'm sure it's a plus, but I just... More

Good price, daily breakfast is provided, food is okay (bananas, toast bread, muffins, milk, coffee), room cleaning is splendid, indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi are available, staff are friendly except the manager (I think), overall good!

The sheets were stained and the front doors looked at though they were kicked in. The toilet wasn't stationary and the bathtub backed up when used. We reserved our rooms through Priceline over 2 months ago, because a family member was graduating from college. They put us in a smoking room and told us that we requested this option, even... More

Hello Robin, thank you for sharing your stay at our hotel. We understand why you wrote such a negative and review of our hotel after your stay, however it is not accurate. You booked and prepaid your reservation through an online travel agent for two smoking rooms; we had exactly what you purchase. As a preferred Muhlenberg Alumni hotel, our... More

I do not think I could stay here longer than one night. The entire hotel smells like cigarettes, the walls are paper thin, the indoor pool was not available for use, and the little breakfast they had was not available earlier than 7am.
