Never again! I had to switch rooms three times because the scary man at the front desk refused to give me my money back. When I first checked in I asked if I could get my money back if I had any problems and he said no problems. Rooms are great. The first room stunk it was really hard to... More

While traveling in this area for business/pleasure, I had the unfortunate experience to stop here. Room not too clean, air conditioner ancient and noisy. Bed was about 50 years old and the headboard FELL off the bed! Place needs a lot of TLC and updating. Never would recommend this place to anyone!

We have stayed here a few times while doing photography trips in the area, we are two single guys traveling and are willing to accept low standards for a cheap price. At this point I can't stand the owner of this dump. He is one of the least friendly people I have ever met. Considering that we have actually returned... More

Next - a request for a $5. key deposit. Then I endeavoured to contact Travelocity, which was answered by a recording and their music channel - costing $22. on my... More

The Pottsville Motor Inn is in terrible condition, at least room 107 is. It's the kind of degradation that takes years. Upon entry, there was a smoky/chemical odor. The compact fluorescent lights are all too dim. Acoustic tile ceilings are warped. Trim paint is badly worn. The wool blanket is so worn out it would be rejected by Goodwill. The... More

We stayed here because we didn't make reservations before leaving home and it was a Pocono Raceway weekend, so there were no hotel rooms anywhere in NE PA. This is the sort of motel that you want to put all of the furniture up against the door, because it wouldn't take much effort to get in. It's also the sort... More

All of the reviews are so true, actually stayed at the hotel back in 2008 winter. Working as a contract nurse at the local hospital. The owner of the hotel is everything ppl say he is, rude, cheap and dirty. Everytime I checked in at the hotel it was a major ordeal, always reminding him of my co. paying for... More
