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!!

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
