I arrived late, 10pm, after driving 15 hours and left at 4am in order to clear traffic getting into NYC. Great location for my purpose but unfortunately I found my hotel room very dirty. The carpet on the room floor appeared very dated and old which didn't help but when I found tags on the floor from previous guests I... More

This hotel had a very 'warm' feel. It's not conventional for me to describe hotels in a 'touchy-feely' way but we were lucky to find the last room available on a Saturday night when there were about 4 large events and festivals going on. There was a little 'sticker shock' at around $212 for the night, but I was desperate... More

We arrived a bit earlier than check in time. I spoke with the front desk clerk and asked if we could leave one vehicle in the lot as we would be in to check in later in the day. We enjoyed a fabulous day at Dorney Park and when we checked in; it was so easy to do. The desk... More

We came to town to see the NASCAR race. After a long day, we settled in to our hotel room which had A+ beds/pillows, bathroom amenities, decor, and very spacious. The front entrance & hallways have a delightful aroma that I've never experienced at any other hotel; very welcoming! As expected, the breakfast was fantastic (cinnamon rolls, egg/cheese omelet &...

Stayed here for one night with my two kids and niece from Saturday to Sunday when visiting Dorney Park. The room was spacious and clean. It included a fridge and microwave. There is an indoor heated pool and free hot breakfast which had good variety of food items.

I have stayed a total of 5 weeks at this hotel. The staff have always been the most accommodating and friendly especially Rachel, Megan and Gregg at the bar. The rooms are specious and the breakfast is always well stocked. As a frequent traveler I can confirm you won't find better in the Leigh Valley.

This is a decent hotel. Nothing special. The room and beds are average. The continental breakfast was slightly better than average. It's across the street from an amusement park. There is a nice AMC movie theater about 10 minutes away. Overall, its nothing to write home about but it gets the job done.
