I will never stay here again. I mean 40$ isn't bad but after staying there I wouldn't pay $20!! This place was dirty, stains on carpets, sheets, towels. Holes in the walls, the outlets do not work to charge your cell phone, wifi sucks, and on top of it all, EVERYONE that I dealt with that works there is rude... More

I booked this room prior to reading reviews, & thank god I did or I wouldn't have stated here. The room was clean, had towels, cable & HBO, hot shower. Obviously it wasn't the Ritz but for $40 - I can't complain & was very satisfied. The owners are from India & they were helpful & nice. My advise is... More

Traveling with friends and we stopped about 9 PM. Compared to the place that we had stayed the previous night this was like a four star hotel. The room had two double beds. It also had a refrigerator and microwave, plus an iron and ironing board. There was a desk and two chairs in the room. The only negative thing... More

With one notable exception, the words 'rude', 'unprofessional' and 'discourteous' describe the hospitality staff of this establishment. The room quality is spotty at best. Take your business elsewhere!

I made a reservation with (booking.com) and then went to check in and was treated EXTREMELY POOR by the clerk. He displayed and ultimate distain, arrogance, disgrace and demeaning attitude towards me when I showed him the booking reservation. HE stated it was not his fault that he did not have the reservation and did not attempt to facilitate any... More

Greeted by someone from India when I arrived; he put me in a smoking room that not even a SMOKER would enter !! (I had to go outside to catch my breath). Got put in... More

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
