Place is full of people fighting all night, sink no hot water,place needs to be condemned, housekeeping never came, The lampshades are falling off this place is a nightmare, I can't believe these rooms are 60 dollars and up! Desk clerk show room had a flat screen that must be the only one in this dump

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!!

One night at the Scottish Inn Allentown is more than enough. The place has a strange smell, probably because some of the rooms are smoking rooms. The interior is kept in brown/green colours which covers dirt and spots well but also makes everything look old and dirty. The breakfast was removed 10 minutes before closing hours, but friends who made... More

Having checked in, I was amazed at the dirty, unkempt room. Smelly, broken lights, outlets, bathroom fixtures. Holes in the walls, ceiling holes and parts falling down. TV worked part time. The room service was the worst ever. No vacuuming, no towels. Management should be in jail. No English unless it comes to your money. Manager yelled curse words at... More

I will never stay here again. I mean 40$ isn't bad but after staying there I wouldn't pay $20!! This place was dirty, stains on carpets, sheets, towels. Holes in the walls, the outlets do not work to charge your cell phone, wifi sucks, and on top of it all, EVERYONE that I dealt with that works there is rude... More

Obviously it wasn't the Ritz but for $40 - I can't complain & was very satisfied. The owners are from India & they were helpful & nice. My advise is... More

Traveling with friends and we stopped about 9 PM. Compared to the place that we had stayed the previous night this was like a four star hotel. The room had two double beds. It also had a refrigerator and microwave, plus an iron and ironing board. There was a desk and two chairs in the room. The only negative thing... More
