You would be better off just sleeping in the woods nearby. Got a king non-smoking. Room reeked of stale cigarette smoke. Never could connect to the internet, desk staff were clueless. Never again. Seek refuge elsewhere!

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night after visiting friends. The shower looked as if nobody has ever cleaned it. The room was outdated, which wouldn't have been an issue if it was cleaned. The continental breakfast wasn't terrible, the staff seemed as if it was an inconvenience for them to be working there. Upon checkout, the lady at... More

We arrived very late in the evening to stay at this hotel for the weekend of my son's soccer tournament. If it hadn't been so late when we arrived, we would have turned around and found other accommodations. The room had stains on the carpets, smelled of old man sweat, and the bed did not even have a fitted sheet... More

I am a pool member. Every year I join. It is the best kept secret in Lehigh Valley. It's large, lots of room. Professional life guards lead by a guard that takes pride in a clean pool, and makes sure all follow rules. Proud to be a summer member. Great job lifeguards and ownership. Thank you for another great summer.

My room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom did need an upgrade. Friendly staff, decent rate. Great location. Very comfortable, safe, not a bad choice. I did not try the breakfast or the attached restaurant so I cannot comment on that.

Old & smelly. Stains throughout the room. Felt damp & smelled like mildew. We got bit by bed bugs, found the bug & placed it in the tub for staff to see. Motel refunded our money for the incident. Close to 309, 78 & 22. Truckers' stop so there are many trucks parked at night.
