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.

I was here for a few days with my spouse and enjoyed our stay. The lounge/restaurant was perfect for a small meal and a couple of relaxing drinks. Our room was perfect...bed was comfy too our surprise. The breakfast could be a bit better,but it is continental so understandable. When we checked in,it was in the middle of the night,and... More

Econolodge Allentown Motel and Conference Center is a dramatically improved renovated as new location, and highly recommended for the weary traveler. I arrived her to cover a weekend sporting event in the Econolodge conference center. The 200 section rooms and the 500 section rooms are renovated as new, five star pristine and nice! Sweet!

Although the room was clean it had no heat. They have 20+ year old zone lines that pump out warm air. I was there on business and had the worst night ever in a MOTEL and I've been in some poor hotels.

It's cheap'ish and the pool looks big With the good stuff out of the way it's dirty, poorly maintained, likely renovated 20 years ago (including bedspreads, yuck!), nosey, poorly soundproofed, weirdly laid out, half empty and feels a little unsafe. My room had newish carpet but an old loud AC, water-stained drapes, a bathroom exhaust that sounded ready to explode,... More
