Went to the car show and checked into this hotel. The lobby, and subsequently, the room smelled of mold. They said there was wireless internet....NOT. Had to walk to the lobby (half mile) to hook up, but when I got back to the room, no internet. The stink was horrid. No ice. The ice machine had cobwebs and cigarette packs... More

Reserved a block of rooms for guests that were coming in for an event. When I reserved, I specifically asked about the bar and how late it remained open, I was told at least midnight. . Our plan was to leave the party at 9 and go back to the hotel and visit with friends/family in the bar. They assured... More

The hotel decor is vintage and hasn't been updated in somtime and isn't so bad that it should deserve such a lousy rating on that basis. I stayed at the hotel two times on the recomedation of co-workers that were staying or had stayed there before. My stays were only a day apart and on the first night I thought... More

The best news I heard during my two night stay for the PA State Chess Tournament is that we will will not be staying in this dump next year. Atrocious place. No wifi and judging from other reviews never works. Sheets like tissue paper, worn with a blood stain on one. Less than one roll of toilet paper for two... More

Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. My toilet was old school yellow along with the tub/shower. My toilet had no water, so I had to fill up the tank with buckets of water from the sink in order to use the toilet in my room. The bedding has holes all through it and the entire hotel smells like a... More

my room has stained ceiling tiles, Staind lampshades and the bathtub has at least 20 hairs in it from the last person.the entire building has water leaks everywhere. It smells like musty moldy carpets. And the owners (from India) don't care. our breakfast was terrible. For a buffet I'm expecting a great selection. It consisted of eggs home fries sausage... More

We arrived at the beginning of graduation weekend expected the lobby to be packed with arriving parents. It wasn't. The lobby was dark and in need of a refreshing scent change. The front desk woman was friendly enough. This is a large property that has a long series of buildings of rooms all connected together, so it must have been... More

The hotel, probably exceptional at one time, was rundown, with common areas unkept and un-maintained. The check-in desk, featured a gentleman who wore a shirt that he obviously had slept in, stained ceiling tiles, and a general cluttered appearance. The entry way that lead to our rooms hallway, had not been vacuumed, nor had the windows been washed in ages,... More
