We have stayed here before and are very happy with this hotel, the staff, and central location. I had to see a client in the area, so once again, we decided to stay at this Holiday Inn Express. The staff is superb. Very friendly and knowledgable. We were here for 5 days. On one of the days, the maid did... More

Front desk staff was attentive and pleasant. The hotel wasn't new, but did seem to be well maintained and my room and the breakfast room were clean. The location was good but imagine the local traffic might be different when the water park was in operation.

We visited this property over the last weekend in August and was pleased with our stay. The hotel was clean. The guest services staff were very polite and professional. Not sure if that had anything to do with my fiancé being an elite member but none the less they were great. The breakfast was hot and fresh. Honestly the only... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The room was dirty, my grandson showed me between the air conditioner and the wall there were lots of spider webs and the carpet was dirty.

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.

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.

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.
