First off, let me state for the record that my expectations were very low considering the quoted rate; that being said, it exceeded the lowest of the lows bordering on scary at times. Unsuitable and unacceptable for just one night, even if that sole purpose of that one night was to cook some meth - which we did not, but... More

(I have been the classy hotels where they charge a minum of $9.95 a night for internet) Owner doesnt smile, but he is OK. If you want all this , plus... More

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

Arrived at this dump late May 8 2012 with a prepaid travelocity reservation. First - it was suggested that I booked a smoking room. The printed reservation definitely stated non-smoking. 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
