This is an old Howard Johnson's hotel renamed. So it is in need of much repair. Black mold on refrigerator seal. Tried to clean but wouldn't come off. Carpet so needed shampooed. Bathroom was clean but decor was very outdated. Drain did drain. A plus I guess. Walls were yellow so much that you could tell a picture had hung... More

For all the bad reviews this place wasnt too bad. My friend and I were in town visiting the area with our children and we really enjoyed it. When we checked in we were greeted by two very helpful ladies and a very welcoming atmosphere. Edan was able to get us right into our room and explained everything to us,... More

Stayed one night on our swing through Pennsylvania and it was fine. They accepted the discount coupon from the books given out at state welcome centers, check in was quick with no issues. Staff was friendly and directed us to use the entrance without the stairs as we both are seniors with rolling suitcases so it made it easier for... More

We thought for the deal that we got when we booked our trip that we would have to be sacrificing something; cleanliness or comfort and we were pleasantly surprised that that wasn't the case. The grounds are clean and well - kept and the rooms were better than we hoped. The staff was helpful and friendly and the free breakfasts... More

We were pleased with the rooms and the service. Jordan Eden was excellent in caring and helping us with every request. Keep this person! We were close to our convention and the outlet stores. There was a lot of attractions, restaurants and nightlife.

I get it - it's a fine place to stay when you are on a budget and you don't plan to be in your room or you want to enjoy the weekend at the "water park". However, there are so many things that could be done to increase the mere pleasantness of the stay. We were in town for an... More

Thanks for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay with us. Please allow me to clarify a few things. For the latest tournament at Spooky Nook, we had rooms set aside in a room block specifically for the tournament. This block was about 95% filled, with a few rooms left. A call to Spooky Nook or a...

Three adults and four children (4-7 yrs old) were in our two connected rooms. While the rooms were comfortable, minor repairs were needed in the bathrooms. Kids loved the pool; we wish it would have opened earlier so we could swim before heading out to Dutch Wonderland and the Science Factory. Refrigerators in the rooms were great! And the location...
