Stayed here many times and have always enjoyed my stay. This hotel is very clean and very professionally. I will return to this hotel each and every time I visit the Allentown area. I myself find the beds to be quite comfortable at this hotel and look forward to bedtime.

We stayed here on our way home and our experience was excellent. The room was clean and we had a good nights sleep. The front desk was very friendly. The best thing was the breakfast which is the best of any hotels. It was of course was topped off with the cinnamon rolls. Very good deal.

I've come to Allentown for nearly a decade for business and have opted to stay at different hotels along Hamilton Blvd, adjacent to Dorney Park. And this one is definitely the nicest and most bang for your buck. Clean, affordable and outstanding staff really round out your experience here. Plus, you're literally across the street from Dorney Park but it...

Here is the scenario....Family of 5 staying overnight to attend Dorney Park for the day...

An overnight stay to bring our daughter to Dorney Park for the day. We arrived early, and were quite happy to be checked in 1 1/2 hours in advance . This gave us a good jump on getting to the rides, which were literally across the highway and within our view. Our room was clean and neat, although the carpet...

We stayed here in the double queen suite. The manager and the cleaning staff were wonderful! BUT, we had a horrible night sleep. The beds and pillows were lumpy and the pull out had a pronounced bar mid back level. You can tell this is an older hotel needing some little repairs, like leaky toilets and blinking lights. We probably...

My daughter and I arrived for the convention and were initially greeted by a rude employee for check in. After this, the rest of the stay was very nice. The room was beautiful and comfortable. There was an issue with the outlets as most were not installed properly in the wall and could not be used.
