We chose the Howard Johnson's because it is on the Wyndham website and a good price. What we didn't know was how run down this hotel was. I called to find out what time check in is. Although the website said three pm, the clerk told me they start taking you at 1 pm. We arrived at 2 pm &... More

I have stayed in many Howard Johnson's over the years, and while many were not new or up-to-date, they were all clean & well-kept - until this rat-hole. Except for the lobby, there wasn't a single area in this dump that was clean. Even the hallways were filthy - doors & walls looked like they hadn't seen any form of... More

Average hotel. I've stayed here a few times & no complaints either time. Nice pool area although I have't gone swimming. Reasonable rate & across the street from Dorney Park. Within walking distance of restaurants & shops. Near 78 & 22.

Room wasn't the cleanest. Arrived at 2:30, check in is at 3, and was told it would be a couple hours till the rooms were ready. The pool/spa was nice. Complimentary breakfast, but we walked across the parking lot to Perkins instead. Couldn't put anything in freezer of mini fridge it was full of frost, needed to be thawed out.... More

The pool didnt look clean, the hot tubs jets were not running, my shower head wasn't attached properly and sprayed all over the floor during my shower. My smoke free room smelled like cigarettes. For the price we paid and distance from dorney I guess it was worth it, we weren't at the hotel much anyway

Very disappointed in this hotel. Will NEVER stay at a Howard Johnson again. I felt like I was in some random motel with the filthy tub, stained sheets, smell of cigarette smoke.

The hotel smelt like cigarette and weed, the lighting in the room was horrible, the bathroom was just horrible. The shower curtain wouldn't stay close so when u finished bathing it was like a pool on the floor. The vent made this loud annoying noise, the toilet paper holder was broken so the toilet paper kept falling. The housekeeping staff... More
