Lobby is the nicest part of the hotel. I am usually not too picky with hotels, but this place is rough. The hallway and room smell terrible. The carpet looks greasy and is stained all over. The walls are dirty, the sheets are stained. Light bulbs are burnt out. The big kicker for me was the people outside and around... More

A lot of mixed reviews here. I do not have anything negative to say about my stay here. Check in was quick. My room was very clean and roomy. It looked like the bathroom had been updated because the tiles and tub looked new. I got a good deal for $56 so the price couldn't be beat. For a basic,... More

My daughter and I checked in on September 24 in order to attend an event on Sunday. Shortly after falling asleep around midnight the couple in the room next door were apparently quite amorous and making enough noise and racket that I honestly thought the picture on the wall was going to come down. Just as I was going to... More

We booked this "Inn" for a last minute overnight stay in the Allentown/Bethlehem area for $90 through a different website as our favorite places were sold out. This place was a nightmare. The room was dirty; tub was filthy; flies (we killed 3 in about a two hour period); there were very questionable characters in the parking area; the pool... More

This motel has been remodeled and updated. The staff was friendly and accommodating. This means a lot to a weary traveler. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The price was also good for the area. What more can you ask for? We had an enjoyable stay.

This was the most nasty, dirty, poorly maintained hotel I have ever stayed in. The management was not in the least helpful, you have to just about beg for an extra towel, the room stunk to high heaven and the pool, OMG, I wouldn't have gotten into in a million years. I would have rather stayed in my car then... More

The only reason why I booked this hotel room is because I needed a cheap room close to my college. Mind you, I live about an hour away from my college. I made the horrible mistake of booking here, then reading the reviews. I was fearing the worst to happen. When I arrived to the check in, I was slapped... More

Sketchy neighborhood with a dirty exterior, dirty stairwells, overflowing garbage cans, I did not feel safe at this hotel. Also, I asked for a non-smoking room and was given a non-smoking room surrounded by all smoking rooms and smelled cigarette smoke all night. Internet did not work. Morning could not come fast enough to get out of this place. Disgusting!!
