I booked the Econo Lodge in Allentown after reading reviews on another site that pegged it as "fine, no frills". I will certainly never read another site for hotel suggestions again. On the outside this hotel seems to fit the "fine, no frills" criteria but inside it's the most horrible, gross, hole.
Scuzzy bathroom with water damage and mold. Dirty shower and tub, just grimy and gross.
Dirty blankets on the bed. Lots of hair on the back of the pillows. Spots on sheets.
I almost threw up. We gathered up the bed stuff and threw it in a corner on the floor.
Insect crawling on the wall. Hole in the window screen. So once we caught the bug we just let it out through the hole-why not!
The entire room felt unclean and unsanitary.
It was LOUD outside. People were hanging out, drinking, swearing, and yelling downstairs outside the first floor rooms. They were driving around in the lot and peeling out. We had brief interaction with these people on our way in to our rooms for the night and they were scary. We were so freaked out it's the only reason we didn't leave and escape to another hotel. We felt trapped.
I ended up taking some of my clothes from my bag and covering the bed with them. I then stuffed clothes inside my jacket and rolled it up to make a pillow. I'm not being dramatic it was so disgusting. I didn't sleep a wink between the loud, frightening people downstairs and the sick room and dirty bed stuff in the corner.
We got up earlier than planned and got out of there. I seriously had to suppress vomit all night and was worried about my car in the lot.
Turns out I had good reason because my car was scraped along the back driver's side. GREAT!
Hands down the absolutely worst hotel experience.
Gross, disgusting, horrible, awful, unclean, unsafe, dirty, nightmare hotel. NEVER NEVER NEVER stay here no matter what the price, no matter what other reviews you read, no matter how the promotional photos look, never never never never.
