The staff was the shining star of this hotel. Both the desk staff and the morning breakfast staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and the room was nice with a great view of the park.

We just stayed 4 nights here in a king suite. Aline was great at the front desk! Rooms are dated but getting renovated we were told.

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.

The hotel staff was amazingly helpful with any questions we had and some went above and beyond customer service. I returned to the hotel to collect my car from the parking lot (as me and my family car pooled to Dorney Park for the day). Unfortunately, I had locked my keys in the car. I had high hopes of just...

Parking Situation is a mess. Front lot is small and fills up quick, back lot is also very small, not sure if they even have enough spots for a full house. Wifi is horribly slow, pictures of proof are attached. Had to use my hotspot on my phone to write the review. Room was quiet. 2nd floor facing Dorney Park.... More

We didn't stay here when the park was open but it's right across from the amusement park so I can't tell you about screams from the roller coasters.

It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. The room was a bit run down, and the setup was a little weird. Staff were very nice, and the location was good -- just a few blocks down to a few nice restaurants. I guess for a Holiday Inn Express it was what you'd expect, except that it needs an upgrade!
