We stayed here for one night, mainly based on location and history. We wanted a hotel that was a quick drive to FirstEnergy Stadium for a baseball game, and that was in walking distance to specific downtown bar we wanted to try (Jimmie Kramer's Peanut Bar). The Abe Lincoln is really the only downtown hotel, so we gave it a... More

My fiance and I stayed here at the Abe Lincoln Hotel while visiting PA to see the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum's 25th Anniversay show. (June 2015). We really liked the decor and atmosphere and it is the only historic hotel in the area. Things we liked: our room, the lobby decor, the employees that served us breakfast/bar and shuttled us to...

Defiantly try this hotel out. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. The rooms are specious and clean. The bed and pillows were comfy. We just enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful lobby and visiting with friends who accompanied us on our trip. The staff was kind and helpful. It's like stepping back in time. We loved the atmosphere. I can't... More

Lovely facility, but not able to handle bus tours. They ran out of food and coffee at breakfast. Our room had a coffee maker, but no coffee or cups. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were clean. Staff was very polite. Very easy for buses to access the hotel entrance.

I loved the lobby area and the bar, but the Hotel is very dated, could use new carpeting in the hallways, and is crazy charging for overnight parking. That being said, the room was clean and the bathroom was large and spacious with the vanity outside the tub and toilet area. Reasonable bedding and room amenities. We came to see... More

This was a really bad experience. 1. The rooms did not feel clean at all. 2. The carpets were old and had a bad odor. 3. Pillows had no support to them. 4. There wasn't hand soap when we first checked in, and we had to use the shower gel as a replacement. When I asked for hand soap the... More

This hotel is a piece of crap. Their customer service is a joke. They do not care about their guests at all. Every time we tried to go to the front desk it took several minutes for anyone to even acknowledge our presence, even though there was no one else waiting and plenty of staff. We booked a room for...

We drove in from New York to watch a concert. It looked like a neat hotel to stay in and it was close to Santander Theater (within walking distance) so it seemed like a good choice. Parking was a little confusing...we had our truck and it wouldn't fit in the free parking garage. They let us park across the street... More
