Great hotel, gym was good, treadmill worked pleasantly well, limited weights. Nevertheless 8 dollars per day if you want to park your car. Location is good, 10 to 15 min to Leighvalley mall which has a great selection of everything. 20 min to regional airport.

This is my 17th hotel night in the last 25 days. Needed to be near Easton, Pa. I don't like the location of this hotel or the way parking is set up. In fact, if my husband had not been with me, I would have demanded a refund for my safety. This hotel is overpriced for the quality of the... More

Hotel and it's staff were great. Room was clean and everything worked. Only stayed one night and rate was good. Area around hotel is city like but I wouldn't wander too far from hotel as ride towards hotel was through a very depressed area.

The staff of this hotel tries really hard to make your visit enjoyable - very friendly and helpful front desk. But the neighborhood seemed marginal, and hotel parking ($8) is in a garage across the back alley from the hotel. One big plus, aside from terrific staff: wi-fi- usually you only read complaints about wi-fi in reviews, because you have... More

My wife attended concert at PPL and wanted walking distance. Hotel is located two blocks from PPL. Lots of brew pubs and restaurants between Home and PPL. Price was reasonable. Check-in and Check-out were smooth with awesome front desk help. Rooms were clean and nice typical Holiday Inn rooms......We will return....Thank you.

The hotel is located in the bowels of Allentown. Unfortunately the city is not ready for the hotel. The rooms are nice, as are the restaurant and the bar. They just don't have the clientele. Stay here if you must be downtown, if not, head for the suburban hotels.
