“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Our son and daughter-in-law had their wedding reception here. We spent two nights at the mansion. The room was beautiful. The staff was great. The breakfast was very, very good. If you are looking for a nice, quiet hotel this is the place. If you like to gamble the casino is quite close.

We had a nice stay at the Sayre during a recent family reunion. I will be forthcoming in saying that the bed and breakfast scene is not my deal. But, I must say that this was a nice place. The staff was amazing, friendly and helpful. The room (#26) was nice with comfy beds. The bathroom was clean and adequate. The breakfast in the morning was pretty good. However, two of us don't eat pork, which cut out almost every hot item. The fruit and bakery items were nice. In the end, I'm not quite sure the $250 price tag was worth it; but if bed and breakfasts are your thing, I think you would be pretty pleased with this place.

From the moment I called and made my reservation, I had really good feelings about the Sayre. The lady on the phone was welcoming and helpful and got me excited for our stay there. My husband and I were taking our 15 year old son and his cousin to get their Advanced Scuba Certification at Dutch Springs, a short drive from the Sayre. They made take out breakfasts for them both days, printed out directions for us, made restaurant recommendations, refrigerated food we got at the Allentown Farmer's Market, and were generally as cheerful and accomodating as can be.
Our room (34) was perfect in that it had a separate alcove with a single bed. We were able to fit the rollaway cot in there as well, so they had their space and we had ours. The room was much larger than most rooms at inns, and this wasn't even one of their suites! Air conditioning was perfect, there are bottle water fountains on each floor, and the double bed... we couldn't believe how comfortable it was.
Breakfasts were delicious, Bethlehem is a fascinating historic city, and we had a thorougly enjoyable stay. We will definitely return to the Sayre.

My husband sister & I only stayed one night but so glad we did. Dana did a wonderful job of welcoming us & giving us ideas for dinner & calling for reservations. HAd a nice rollaway bed for an extra person . Cost $140. But with the scrumptious breakfast well worth it, fresh fruit, French toast or omlet. Walked around town & saw the remains of the old steel plants . Lehigh Universty pretty place to walk around

I grew up in the Lehigh Valley and drove past Sayre Mansion hundreds upon hundreds of times - (I even took a courses at Lehigh U.) but never really paid attention to the Mansion. I knew it was there, but never knew what it really was. Regardless, my husband and I had one night to get away to celebrate our 15th anniversary while we visited family in the area. Our little ones stayed with family and, for the first time in nearly 4 years (!) we had a night away from our kids. Obviously, that put us in a good frame of mind.

Sayre Mansion is in a great location - a very short ride to downtown Bethlehem, Moravian Central Church, the casino, the Stacks, Lehigh U, and so on. We stayed in room 12 which is on the main floor and kind of out of the way - we wanted quiet. It was! The AC was a bit loud, but it did keep the room comfortable. The decor is individual to each room. Although it had a lived-in feel, I kind of prefer that to the sterile-style of updated hotels. The bed was comfortable. The room was very large, with a desk, fireplace, and leather love seat. The TV was small. The bathroom had a pedestal sink, toilet, and corner shower. Nice bath products.

Breakfast was very nice and included in the room fee. Served in the dining room, there was fruit salad, tea, coffee, yogurt, cereal, danishes, juice - all self-serve, plus you could order what you wanted from the kitchen - we got eggs and bacon and toast and it was very nice.

We did try to check in a couple hours early, but were not able to (fair enough - we just turned up). We had a lovely time.

Room Tip: Definitely use the descriptions on the Sayre Mansion Inn website. Rooms vary in rates depending on l...

My children and I stayed here and loved it. We were given an extra rollaway bed in case it was needed. Kids loved the breakfast. Room was cool and clean (summertime). Service was excellent. The piano was a bonus, which my children could practice their lessons on a little at a suitable time. Large yard for kids to run around on before we got in the car. Nice pizza place down the hill For us, this was the perfect place to stay for our trip to the NJ/NY metro area.

The stay was perfect, we took a room that was on the 3rd floor off on its own so no one needed to walk past our door. the breakfast the next morning made the stay outstanding. We only stayed one night but would have enjoyed staying if there was more to do in the area.
