My husband and I went to a show at the Sands Event Center and just needed an inexpensive room for the night so we could travel back to New Jersey in the morning. Well folks, you GET what you pay for. We arrived at this dump close to midnight after the show. The "lobby" is locked after a certain hour... More

My family recently attended the DCI competition in Allentown Pa. This has been a regular trip for the last 10 to 15 years. My family has stayed in some lovely hotels in the Bethlehem/Allentown areas during that time. This particular hotel was not only poor it was virtually uninhabitable! The walls had holes in them, the phone had buttons that... More

I've stayed in this place twice now, the first time being about 4-5 years ago. This is a definite mom-and-pop place that struggles a bit. The beds are clean, the rooms are clean, and really, it's everything you would need for a one-night stay-over OR if you're single and need a place for a few days. So, from that perspective,... More

The worst experience I've ever had in my life. We were there for 2 days and never cleaned us the room. We had to ask to bring towels, shampo and soap, they never came to the room, we returned to claim for a second time.A disgusting breakfast. First and last you see that I use that hotel

I am at a loss for words! Completely horrible. Went to dorney park with my family and thought this would be a good place to stay. Dirty nasty rude employees. Stayed there 2nights and had to change my room 4 times because of the dirty beds! Will never stay there again, stay away . Save your money...

This place is awful. Really awful. The fridge didn't work. There were dirty towels in the hallway. Our sheets had a cigarette burn. The bathroom was disgusting. There were footprints on the door... the ceiling was stained. It was scary gross. We were passing through on a long trip and got stuck staying here.... disgusted!!!

This place is need of repair. The sheets in my colleagues room were dirty and the bathrooms needed renovation and a thorough clean. Not sure when last the carpets were vacuumed. The so-called breakfast was inedible and the coffee awful.

We visited Allentown to go to the Home Show, and decided to stay over night after a long day. Upon arrival the first bad sign NOT to stay there was the parking lot was not cleared of snow long after the storm. Like two days! There were hardly any parking spots, We had to put our vehicle in four wheel... More

I've really never stayed at a hotel where I don't think they have maids at all... I swear all they do is change the sheets and towels and give you new soaps.... They seriously need to step up the housekeeping at this place! There are literally cobwebs on the ceiling.... Gross.
