“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in a family suite. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Breakfast was included and very good. Would definitely recommend. Could walk to Dorney park, but you have to cross the highway. Great location!!

This hotel conveniently located across street from Dorney Park,The hotel was quiet and clean. I've read some reviews and it didn't give this hotel justice. I have stay in many hotels in my life and by far this is one the best. Great breakfast,I call front desk about something and phone quickly.My room was on third floor facing the park. I will attend Haunt week next year and this will be my hotel. Awesome!!!!!!! Great front desk. Stay 10/13/2014

Room Tip: Facing the park great Choice.

I made my reservation months in advance and they messed up the reservation. I was told they overbooked the hotel. So my coworkers and I got a king bed when we reserved 2 queen beds. Then they tried to cram a roll a way bed in the room to make it better. Not very happy with the stay.

We stayed here on September 28th. We visited dorney park in the AM and i came back to the hotel and my family went for fright night. It is nothing extravagant by any means. Must have been a hotel that allowed smoking at one time as certain area's still have smoke odor. We were unfortunate to have a room that faced dorney park it was loud. You could actually hear conversations and car radios from the parking lot in our room at 12:00 AM. Oh and i forgot the wedding guests who were also having a LOUD time of it. This was not worth the 154.00 we paid.
The rooms were just so so, really didn't feel clean.Right on the highway it was like a motor speedway up until about 1:00 AM.
We will not be staying here again. There was no resturant on site we had to walk to the comfort inn. Not happy.

My wife & I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express across from Dorney Park on September 29 in one of the rooms described as "King With A View of Dorney Park". The room had been recently upgraded and was extremely well appointed, including both a microwave & refrigerator. The breakfast was delicious...far exceeding standard "complimentary" breakfasts. The staff was very courteous and helpful.

Now for the downsides: We stayed on the first floor to the left of the lobby and the housekeepers placed all of their carts in the hallway, making it exceedingly difficult to use the hall. Although our room was billed as having a view of Dorney Park, all we could see was bushes and a truck in the parking lot. It was very convenient having a restaurant on premises but the food was way overpriced.

Room Tip: If you want a view of Dorney Park, request a room above the first floor.

We came for a college reunion, and stayed here with several of our old friends. While I originally thought the cost was a bit much, in retrospect it was worth it. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, especially the beds, pillows and shower. It was also very quiet. The breakfast was above average for a hotel. We especially appreciated the recommendation of nearby restaurants (Grille 3501), where a significant discount was given on showing our room key. They also were very accommodating in letting our group "take over" part of the lobby for an impromptu gathering. Kimberly at the desk could not have been more helpful.

Every year my family makes a trip to Allentown to visit family. We always stay here. It's right across the street from Dorney Park, so it's convenient. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is great, and the staff couldn't be more friendly.
