We stayed here on a Saturday night in August. All in all, the room was clean and comfortable. We had a queen suite and the bed was nice. Very clean. Air worked fine. Very quiet and the hotel staff was very courteous. The bartender, Jason, went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of so... More

Average room in an average neighborhood. Limited bar food in the hotel lounge was...you guessed it "average". Bartenders and hotel staff were great. We were there for the Reading Airport WW2 weekend so most of the days were spent away. There were great restaurants in the areas.

Well to start off, this is my second time staying here at the Abe, the best thing about the place that really stand out to me, is the customer service that one receives from the associates. The bar is a great time to have a conversation, few laughs, great drinks, and chill out with the cool bartender. Definitely worth the... More

The location of The Abraham Lincoln Hotel is excellent. Upon the arrival of my family and I checking in we were a little disappointed for the room we reserved was not ready for us. Receiving services was a little slow at first, but was later explained that they were in transition with new management and staff. As our stay extended... More

We rented one of the apartments for a month (June 2014) and they are somewhat old, but very spacious, clean, and we had a great bed. Flat screen TV. The kitchen had the basic tools, pots and pans, coffee maker, plates, flatware etc. The bathroom was huge (we had the handicap access one), and we had a comfortable stay. Cleaning... More

I was very hesitant to write this review as I am not sure if my experience is unique or the norm. I don't like the thought of rating a hotel so low just because of one bad egg, however I feel compelled to share my experience. My wife and I planned a historical road trip from Ohio to Massachusetts. We... More

I made my reservation and was so looking forward to this hotel since I love old places. When I saw it was connected with wyndom I thought it would be great. The lobby was beautiful, but that was all that was beautiful. The room seemed clean but was not impressive. The lamp had a lamp shade on it with holes... More

Our school used the hotel's grand ballroom for graduation and a dinner for VIPs. The ballroom was impeccable and the service...outstanding! The hotel is being quietly renovated from top to bottom and believe us, it is worth the wait!
