We had a pleasant 9 day stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Allentown. We found the room to be comfortable, clean and quiet. The manager, front desk workers, and the housekeeping staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Kenya came to freshen up the room each day, and she was delightful; I enjoyed her smile. Our trip was a...

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...

Dear Guests, I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your overall stay with us and that you found our staff to be friendly. I do apologize that the mattresses did not meet your expectations. Our beds seem to be a matter of preference. Many people wish to purchase the same bed which another may find uncomfortable. All of our...

I'm an IHG Gold member and I booked my room several weeks in advance and paid for the room in full at the time I reserved it. When my family and I arrived at 8:00 pm we were told that our room was not ready and that housekeeping was still working on them. They must have the slowest housekeeping staff...

I stayed at this hotel while visiting friends in Allentown. The hotel is right across the street from Dorney Park so it is a great location if that is what you are looking for.

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.

Perfect if you are going to Dorney Park. Truly just across the street. The only two things I did not like: 1. To get to Dorney you must cross a 4 lane road, which is basically a highway. There absolutely should be a crosswalk with a light there. Kind of scary, esp with small kids! 2. There are only 7...

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting your comments on TripAdvisor. Just recently, there was an article in the local newspaper with talks of building a crosswalk for all of the traffic coming to and from the park. This would be great! Hopefully they get the funding they need and the plans go into action. I also want to apologize the...
