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

Stopped here overnight while traveling. I should have read some of these reviews first. As mentioned previously, isolated location along with what appeared to be very few guests (could count the cars on 1 hand), left me feeling vulnerable. Surprisingly, our room and bathroom were clean, but I was skeeved nevertheless. Did make it through the night...the included continental breakfast... More

Everything that was within their control was as it should be; but the pet fee should be lower; and although truck drivers prefer sheets to be changed after each stay, it is very uncomfortable if you are used to sleeping on a fitted sheet (within in no time I was laying on the mattress. It is a motor- hotel, and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights alone. The bed was comfortable. The room was quiet and the price was right. It was exactly what I needed and it delivered. Helpful and courteous staff. Ckean pool. I'd stay again.

Stayed for two nights...here are my thoughts. It is a large property on a dead end street, a bit isolated. Would not recommend for solo female traveller. CONS: bathroom floors were very dirty,sink had hair in it. Hot water took 10 minutes to arrive. Coffee pot broken Lamp did not work Safe broken Dirty carpet No fitted sheet Mattress pad... More
