I was looking for a hotel close to Appalachian trail and found this one. It has good rooms and serves nice breakfast. It is located close to the Appalachian trail. The place might not feel best for the luxury travelers. But for those traveling on budget, this would perfectly fit the bill.

The booking at this motel was arranged by another person. Otherwise, I would have left immediately and found a different place. The best thing about the place is the spaciousness of the rooms. The WiFi was not too bad. Everything else was very poor. Check in experience was very disconcerting, especially the charging of a security deposit of nearly the... More

Having been here several times in the past, we stopped here after a hard day of work and received nothing but aggravation. We pay cash as we are on the company's budget for all trips out of state. The gentleman at the front desk was able to pull up our information but when I said we will be paying by... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in August, 2015. Really had no complaints. Room was adequate; some signs of wear (never try painting bathtubs and ceramic tile....). Bed was comfortable. Room was quiet. Huge complex...282 rooms all in 1-story motel buildings. Some rooms/areas have been renovated. HUGE pool, actually goes to 12' deep. Course, water was a little cool..... I managed... More

If you have to visit Allentown PA DO NOT stay at this Econo Lodge. This place was disgusting. I literally did not want to even take a shower because the tub was so corroded. The carpet was so dingy and there was a horrible muggy smell. I called the front desk and they wanted to come and spray febreeze, that... More

You would be better off sleeping in your car in a Walmart parking lot. Disgusting. Hairs all over the sheets. Beds sunk down in the middle. Bathtub was brown and so worn it was repulsive. Felt like I needed a shower just walking in the room. We were with a group and found out that they had complained about the... More

Just spent a night and 2 days at this Motel & Conference Center. It wasn't the worse place I've ever stayed, but not the best either. The rooms were fair-painted nice, but the carpet was dirty and Tub/shower units need to be updated. The bedding was newer, but the sheets and mattress pads wouldn't stay on the beds. The pool...

Our room was very clean. The HVAC system in the room worked perfectly. It was an older style TV, but worked perfectly. Lots of channels, including Disney. The grounds are large for dog-walking. The breakfast was simple, but good. It was worth the cost, but the pet-fee could be lower.
