Came to this hotel after spending a night at Days Inn. (Days Inn was terrible) Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. This hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and courteous. Breakfast was satisfactory, but not spectacular, as to be expected of a free hotel continental breakfast. In the evenings they had warm cookies in the lobby that...

My wife and I stayed here for one night while traveling to our final destination during our summer family vacation. The hotel is directly across the street from Dorney Park but also offers easy access to the interstate. The hotel is very clean and offers a good stop over choice if traveling in the area or passing through Pennsylvania. Besides...

Arrived on late afternoon... The front-desk guy was on trainee....and he was very slow... Finally I got my room... Unclean and the floor of bathroom was sticky... The breakfast was free of charge but the food was cold and cheap.

I stayed there for a couple of nights with 6 workmates. Hotel is not bad and rooms are nice. Seriously, the only disappointing thing was noise. There were people and kids running and screaming in the walkway until quite late and hotel staff simply seemed not to care enough to do something. This made for all of us a very...

We stayed one night here after a day at Dorney Park. I was really surprised that, given the location, there was neither a swimming pool nor guest laundry facilities. Quite disappointing actually, but we didn't feel like driving to a different location after a long day at the park. The owner/operator should realize that more vacationing families would be interested...

I stayed here last weekend with my mother and infant son.

Great stay, nice staff. Stayed here with my boyfriend the night before our Dorney Park Visit. They were very accommodating, letting us check in very late at 10pm. Room was clean and quite, nice quick light breakfast in the morning including pancakes, eggs, muffins, toast, cinnamon rolls, toast etc. Overall excellent stay after long drive there from Jersey.
