Hotel with good price

My family and I booked this hotel online. After arrival and getting to our room we decided we couldn't even stay the night. The whole building smelled of cigarettes the room had random springs on the table, dirty pillowcases the toilet paper holder was barely screwed into the wall. We immediately checked back out and found a new hotel.

Location: Dorney Park's Halloween Haunt
Staff was amazing, had a flaw and brought it to the staff attention and it was taken care of in a timely manner. I stay here every year in October and will be back next year!

"Not the best experience"

I already wrote a whole review on this today and none of it was favorable. I really don't care if you post it or not. I'll never stay there again.

Old run down rooms.

Room smelled old and musty. All plaster cracking peeling. Bathroom old and yucky with rust in shower and along walls. The toilet never flushed on first try. AC took 8hrs to cool the room by the time we were leaving it just started to get cool while we sweated all night. Room reminded me of a rundown crack roach motel and was not up to standard and free breakfast tried raisin bran which was stale and no milk was supplied had to pour my coffee in it just to get rid of cardboard taste so I could take my medicine.

convient location

The hotel was close to dorney park and the allentown fairgrounds which was the purpose of our trip. they definetly could use a remodel the place in general was dirty from the stained hallway carpets to the holes on the wall in the bathroom and the cigeratte burns on the tub to the water in the swimming pool. it was a cheap place to lay our head for the night but  our room was tiny ( one large king bed) and we came home reaking of ciggarettes (granted we did book a smoking room since that was they had left)

Dishonest and dirty

Bad hotel. Room smelled. WiFi did not work. Promised a credit for the inconvenience. Later, they reneged on the promise. No milk at breakfast. Salty pool. Do yourself a favor and find a place you will enjoy. TV reception was terrible--snowy picture--all channels.
