Average Hotel Bad Service

Location: There are lots of things to do nearby. We went into Bethlehem---lots of places to walk around/explore and great places to eat.
Our stay started with a 10-15 minute wait at the front desk for a staff member to SHOW up to get us checked in. Once they did show up, no apologies were made regarding our waiting. After we were checked in and given our room number, we arrived in our room to find it stifling hot! It was a 92 degree day outside and the HEAT was on in our room. The room was clean and satisfactory but the comfort level upon arriving was unbearable. We had to turn the AC on and leave for a while to let it cool down.

Perfect for our weekend softball tournament

Pros: The indoor pool was a hit with the girls. The free breakfast is perfect for the parents to feed the team without added expense or leaving the hotel.
Cons: The room air conditioning was not as cool as expected (and it wasn't that hot). Longer pool hours would be nice, especially on a weekend. Better eggs
This hotel was exactly what we were looking for...a place for 10 families and their 14 year-old softball daughters to stay while in the area for a softball tournament. Not too expensive and close to numerous restaurants.

Nice for overnight, but some issues

Pros: Great Staff and elegant, comfortable room.
Cons: Enlarge parking lot, do something about road noise. Getting to I-78 was very confusing and roundabout.
Location: We came for the pinball show, gambling at Sands and a non-sports card show. The location was close for everything.
Excellent, helpful staff. Rooms were very nice and expansive. Beds a little on the firm side. Parking lot is way too small...we got in around 11:00 pm and had to park in one of only two spaces remaining. We were on the side with the highway and the noise from passing vehicles was very loud.

Nice Hotel easy access

Pros: comfortable, secure
Cons: change of hotel type was a surprise with no reservations found.
Location: hard to find with name change.
Business stop over, nice hotel. Will return if business allows. A little out of the way for visits to business location. Hope the confusion with the hotel name clears up.

Excellent Hotel!

Spent two nights at this hotel and was very pleased with everything.  The staff was friendly and helpful, the room and hotel were clean, my son had lots of fun in the pool and the free breakfast was great!  My son loved the automatic pancake machine!  I would stay here again in the future!

Not "by" Dorney Park

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy
Don't be fooled--map it! This hotel is not at, by or near Dorney Park. I wasn't going to the park but wanted to be close to the Interstate and Muhlenberg College. This wasn't close to either. Plus, the room smelled bad and, being right beside a heavily trafficked road, very loud, especially at night. There is a "quiet side" to the hotel that faces a neighborhood. If you stay here, request the quiet side. I will say this: the staff was nice and the breakfast was very good. However, I have stayed in a lot nicer hotels for less money (I'm looking at you, Hampton Inn).

pleasant stay.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, nice pool
Cons: small parking lot
we arrived after midnight and found the parking lot full. had to park on the side of the drive area in front. Room was very nice, basic but good. booked family of 5, but room had no sofa/couch/bed. had to share queen with two 7year olds. didnt ask for cot at midnight. Nice continental breakfast with hot food and cold, well provisioned. modest sized pool was very enjoyable. Staff was very nice.
