“A So-So Holiday Inn”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2008

An okay hotel. Not a lot of people here, which is good. The walls are very thin and you can hear conversations in the next room very easily. A hot breakfast bar in the morning is nice. Having to wait at least 5 minutes for hot water for a shower is not so nice. The room is clean and comfortable.

This was a typical Holiday Inn Express hotel. It offered basic services at a very good rate. It was the least expensive Holiday Inn Express that we have stayed at. We would stay there again.

The room was clean and had a comfy bed with a choice of soft or firm pillows. The bathroom was also clean with the usual toiletries and nice, white, soft towels. It did seem slightly smaller than some bathrooms but nothing that caused a problem.

The complimentary breakfast was adequate. There was a choice of cold cereals, bagels/cream cheese, toast, yoghurts, fruit salad, coffee and whole fruit. There were also cold bolied eggs. There was a complimentary newspaper.

There is a Bonanza by the Comfort Inn just up the road. The buffet there is huge. We ordered a steak thinking that it would be an ordinary salad bar and found that the buffet had meat loaf, chicken, pizza, pasta as well as lots of salads, vegetables and desserts. We could have managed on just the buffet.

The hotel is a little difficult to find. Off I-80 the exit is Lewisburg not New Columbia. This puts you onto Rt 15 and that has a New Columbia exit.

Just came back from a two night stay. The hotel was perfectly acceptable but nothing to write home about. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom was clean. A nice touch was each bed had two firm and two soft pillows. Bedding was nice. Towels were thick. For the price, everything was fine. However, the place is in need of renovations. The carpeting, wallpaper, etc., throughout the hotel shows a lot of wear. The pool room shows even more wear and tear. But, my kids had a great time and especially loved the extensive buffet breakfast. This was by far the best free buffet I've ever had at a place like this. The kids also enjoyed the game room. Another nice touch was a computer & printer in the lobby with free internet access. So, considering what we paid, I wasn't disappointed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone else.

I stayed here during the state swimming championships at Bucknell. Got a room with a king bed. It was big enough with a desk, sofa and coffee table. TV worked, but remote was worn out. Bathroom was pretty small, but it works for just one person. Shower ran out of hot water a few times.
Staff was friendly enough and they helped me out when I was charged for a long-distance call.
Breakfast bar was well-stocked, even though the hotel was full and everyone was coming through between 6-7 in the morning before heading to Bucknell.

We stayed at this hotel in September and it was a nightmare! Upon arriving we were greeted by a group of drunk boys who were hanging out in the parking lot. It was quite late when we arrived and pouring down rain, not enough time nor did we know the area to look for another place to stay.

The desk staff was friendly and the room extremely old and much needed uplift. Every thing from the furniture to the rugs seemed dirty. There was a jacket from someone left inside the room. The bed had an old mattress yuck. My husband and I felt like we were sleeping on the box springs. We were up all night! The next morning early around 5:30am not able to take it anymore we complained to the desk staff, she said okay, no I am sorry, I'll refund you or anything. It was quite upsetting to think this hotel represents Holiday Inn.

We left that day and when I got home we contacted Holiday to report the hotel. Almost a month later we get an email back from them, telling us they are investigating the situation.

Save yourself the time and unrest and stay somewhere else.

Every Memorial Day my husband and I and our small daughter go to Knoebel's. This year we decided to try a different hotel because we were also bringing along my 9 year old nephew and our older daugher who is 17. The hotel was very accommodating by providing us with a cot free of charge. We decided to stay at this hotel for two reasons. First, was the free continental breakfast and secondly the inside pool for the kids to tire them out if they weren't already tired from walking through Knoebel's all day. The room was big enough for the 5 of us, the breakfast was fresh and delicious, the pool was great for the kids and the hotel staff was polite and courteous. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to friends or family who are planning a trip to Knoebel's. It is a bit of a drive to and from (Knoebel's and hotel) but since it is mostly Interstate driving it was doable. Oh, I forgot, great rate too. We saved so much money by just enjoying the Continental breakfast.

Adequate room, clean but with poor lighting and dreadful water pressure. Noisy, noisy!!!!!!! We would stay here again IF we couldn't find another room in the area.
