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

I recently stayed here as I was visiting Dorney Park the following day. This hotel was lackluster and I would NEVER stay here again after something I witnessed with one of the "managers" Harrison Kane. I will get to that later and I had numerous problems with my stay... When I reserved, Choicehotels website states there are rooms with balconies.... More

This was by far the worst hotel experience that I have had in 30 years. It was moved to 4 different rooms until i found one that was marginally acceptable, the only reason I stayed there was the fact that is was 1:45 in the morning and there were no other hotels available in a 45 mile radius. The rooms... More

Quick weekend for the DCI competition. This motel is an older one. A few cons include very weak wifi service if at all. Called ahead of our stay about getting a roll-away bed and was assured it wouldn't be a problem. Got up to the motel and was told they have only have about three and are usually taken quickly....

The staff were very helpful and kind. Our key would not unlock our door after many attempts, and the owner had to come help. We eventually got it to work, although in the morning as I snuck out to exercise, the door handle would not move back into its' position. This left the door unlatched and unlocked. This place really... More

Omg on top of the fact that at check in time the rooms were not even ready. Our rooms smelled like SIN ughhh! Bathtub was filthy, parking looked like a murder scene! And I fell coming out my room very unsafe! Not worth 2 pennies. Never again!!!

Musty smelling rooms. Dirty. Worn out beds that sink to the floor. Priced way too high, this place should have hourly rates. Only positive is plenty of room for a big truck if I'm really desperate. Avoid.

So I read all the reviews of this place. Most of them were bad, but I just figured that sometimes people make mountains out of mole hills. I really did not expect much, but I did not expect for it to be this bad. First of all it is really difficult to get to. It was really late when we... More

Working in the area had us staying here for 2 nights and will try to avoid it at all costs if in the area again. First night, the desk clerk was polite and all but even after asking for rooms close to the attached restaurant, we were given rooms at the last building in the multi-building facility. The room we... More

A conveniently located venue, just off Rt. 22 when you're in Allentown. Motel's amenities are dated, but serviceable. The TVs need upgrading but the channel selection is good. Clean, quiet rooms & comfortable bed. After several changes of ownership, Econolodge seems to be slowing upgrading the facilities. They've added free Wi-Fi, which is very welcome. Best of all, each room... More
