The night of disaster started by not being able to get in our room. This is ironic because the security doors at rear of the hotel didn't need a guest key, they just remained unlocked. Non working lights at the corner of the building also. We were finally let in after the desk clerk had to try several keys. I... More

The manager is rude and dismissive, although the other staff is pleasant enough. Repairs are neglected, non working ice machine ,out dated furniture, broken doors and door latches, dirty toilets, bad tv reception, and the list goes on.

If this place were a movie it would be directed to video. The only good thing about this place is that it's within walking distance of the Reading Phillies ballpark. The place smells funky and the deadbolts on my room door were broken. My room also had two doors. One to the hallway and the other for the parking lot.... More

Seems to be the the place for the town to drink. Our assigned room was next to some day workers who had been drinking with over a... More
