Was there for a karate banquet, serving staff forgot a few tables, we never got coffee, or plates cleared away. Took my son to use the bathroom and it was about as disgusting as you're mind will let you imagine! Refused to let him use the toilet, ended up driving him home. Place is old, tired and run down, I... More

When I pulled into the driveway I saw something splended in the form of old mattresses out with the trash. It was about 1:30pm when i checked in and I was able to get a room right away. The person at check-in was courtieous and gave me the room key. When I got to my room it was basicially what... More

Management doesn't seem to understand "circumstances out of my control" the sad part is that I didn't even get there and already had a terrible experience with them. I won't book with them again. Waste of money and time

We arrived with a reservation made months in advance. At 130 am no one was in the office, we waited 15 minutes for him to come back. He offered us a king room with no air or a double room. I took the double. The hallways have not been swept in days. The room was filthy. The carpet was dirty.... More

If I did not have an elderly tired Mom with me I would have left immediately. There was mold all over the bathroom. The sink and shower were dirty and the sheets were used. The AC was so loud, luckily my Mom doesn't hear well. The water stunk. There were gangs of kids hanging out all night on cars with... More

Where to start. . . . Checked in with no problems and it all went down hill from there. Went to the room, tried the key and it didn't open. My dad had to go back to the office. He returned with the manager. The key worked this time, but the door still wouldn't open. The manager had to kick... More

Didn't check the reviews prior to arrival. The room is disgusting and stinks. The area is noisy and you have both an airport nearby and a railway just a few steps outside your room. The furniture looks like crap. I didn't even try to sit on its chair - it was so dirty. AVOID IT!

I booked the Econo Lodge in Allentown after reading reviews on another site that pegged it as "fine, no frills". I will certainly never read another site for hotel suggestions again. On the outside this hotel seems to fit the "fine, no frills" criteria but inside it's the most horrible, gross, hole. Scuzzy bathroom with water damage and mold. Dirty... More
