“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

The Howard Johnson is a great place to stay. The location is perfect and there's plenty of things to do around it. There are close by restaurants and right next door to Dorney Park. The rooms were spacious and always clean. The staff are very friendly and since they are from the area, very helpful! Definitely a good price, indoor pool and jacuzzi in the hotel!

Howard Johnson was impressive. Room was clean. I loved the free microwave and refrigerator. It made my stay so much better. The friendly staff made me feel like home. Nothing against my lovely wife. LOL. The Wifi was super fast. The location is in the best part of town with easy access to 78 and rt 22. Since I am a doctor, the hospitals were nearby. My heart group will be back next month. Thank you HOJO Allentown.

I stay frequently at the Allentown Howard Johnson Inn and Suites while traveling on business. It has become my hotel of choice when traveling. The staff is always friendly and I receive a welcome you would think would be reserved for special family and friends.
The hotel is constantly changing and improving things. The beds are brand new and the pool area has been transformed into a relaxing oasis that allows me to get away from the daily grind for a little while.
My company appreciates the fair rate that I receive each time I visit. And with a great night's rest, and an outstanding breakfast to begin each day, I can honestly say that staying at this hotel definitely helps my workday be more productive.

The Allentown Howard Johnson Inn and Suites is also conveniently located across the street from Dorney Park and I will definitely be bringing my family to stay there this summer.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Allentown area on business or pleasure. They CONSISTENTLY IMPRESS!!!!!

We were skeptical when we booked the hotel after looking at the reviews. Now that we have experienced it, we'll be definitely returning every year.
We stayed in a suite and the price we paid for it was a steal. The indoor pool was warm and wonderful (the kids didn't want to get out and it did help in tiring out a couple of hyperactive kids). The staff were very professional and helpful. The beds were amazing, didn't feel like getting out of it. I would say some things were a little dated and I would recommend changing it out like the carpet. Though it was old it was clean. Perkins was right next door and we had a discount since we were saying at the hotel. Overall it was a very relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: Call the hotel front desk to reserve. They gave me a rate cheaper than anything I found online.
