Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beatletoons A Very Nice Stay!!!!
From the minute I called to book the hotel, the staff couldn't be nicer. We went to Dorney Park and the hotel is LITERALLY across the street from the park. The rooms were very adequate. Nothing special but that is NOT a bad thing. Very clean and comfortable with a microwave and small refrigerator in it. The shower was AMAZING with fantastic water pressure. The COMPLIMENTARY buffet breakfast was more than adequate and coffee and fruit was available all day. And guests can buy discounted Dorney Park tickets at the front desk. 4 tickets per room, which was perfect for us. It was a short 2 night stay but we were very happy with this hotel.

This is the second year that I've chosen this hotel to stay at and next year I'm choosing it again!! It's always reasonably priced, breakfast is included and it has a nice amount of options. The only thing I wish was added is fresh fruit! The beds are very comfortable, and the staff is so friendly and helpful! Thanks for a great stay, this hotel makes my yearly dorney trip better!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by twinky bed too soft and room smelled bad
When we first walked into our room and every time thereafter, it smelled terrible. To me it smelled kind of like rotten potatoes. After I was in the room for about 5 minutes, I did not notice the smell, but it was definitely there, because if I walked out and walked back in, I noticed it. This lasted the whole weekend. Also, walking into the front door of the hotel, it smelled like potpourri or something really fragrant which I did not like.
Additionally, the beds in our room, 206, were too soft and saggy.
The room was clean and I was glad not to see any bugs. I mostly stayed there since that is where it was recommended by our relatives in Allentown. I am not sure I would stay there again though.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alicia18 Great Front Desk POOR HOUSEKEEPING
When i stayed at this holiday inn and express. I was very impressed when i walked in. It was very clean and comfortable the two women at the front desk where great. Very cheerful and happy to assistant me. Check inn was fast and efficient. But when we went to our room it was a disappointment. The room had a awful odor the bath room was not clean. And the mini refrigerator was completely disgusting. Housekeeping is obliviously not doing there part on this. The morning i checked out i had asked one of the housekeepers for a garbage bag to clean up some of the mess before we left. She said ok and never got back to me. When i checked out the manager was very nice and completely understood the situation. And refunded me a small amount back. Other then that the people at the front desk from the time i checked in to the time i checked out were great!!!! Hope they find new house keepers. This hotel has so much potential. House keeping needs to step it up. So this hotel can be all around the best!!!! A HUGE THANK YOU to the 2 women at the front desk when we arrived the older lady that works the night shift and the two ladies that were there when we checked out. You girls rock and your doing great!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GNmom1 Pleasant Stay
We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express since we were going to Dorney Park and this hotel is just across the street. Not really walkable though since you need to cross a busy highway, but still very convenient. We enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice having a microwave and fridge in the room. However, the breakfast area is poorly designed. It was quite crowded when we were there and there was a serious bottleneck which made it impossible to get to anything. Also, the pancake machine broke halfway into the breakfast service which made the bottleneck even worse. Would be nice if they had a shuttle to Dorney Park.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by perez8885 comfortable and convenient
I was pretty happy with the service. There was only two problems I had. One being the hidden racism. Even though the front desk was being really nice, they still made me feel like because I'm hispanic I wss going to skip the bill. My sister-in-law also felt the same way. Housekeeping was wonderful. I also had a problem with location. Sure it was walking distance, but it was pretty scary crossing the highway during day and even scarier crossing it during the night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TraTra Great Service and Comfortable Suite
The room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. A little table would have been nice for small meals since there was a microwave. The bathroom could've been cleaner but I am always prepared to do a little extra cleaning when I stay at a hotel especially with little kids. The discounted DorneyPark tickets were great and it was a savings being able to walk across the street. I would stay there again and would recommend to friends/family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FamilyTraveler17055 Very clean, good value, nice breakfast.
Great location if you're going to Dorney Park. Located right across the street. However, you probably won't want to cross this busy divided highway on foot. There isn't even a good intersection at which to cross. We ended up driving over and paying for parking. This hotel was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly, even during their busy morning rush at the breakfast bar. The breakfast choices were great. We especially liked the pancake machine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BP47 Comfortable room and clean.... but few amenities
Would have been nice if there was a place inside the hotel to eat lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy, just a few chooses so that you didn't have to go out.
Maybe an indoor pool.

We came for a visit to Dorney Park and it was great! The staff was so nice and welcoming! It was right across the street from dorney and very convenient. It was a little hard to cross the street but thats ok. The room was very good. The only thing is that every time you walk in the door you have to enter the password for the wifi. It was a little annoying but overall, great hotel!

I was looking for an affordable Hotel in close proximity to Dorney Park / Wild Water Kingdom. I could not have gotten any closer. Holiday Inn Express was right across the street. The rooms were very spacious and clean, well decorated and affordable. Breakfast was and extra bonus....every breakfast food imaginable was available free of charge. Already making plans to return next summer with my entire family for our annual family reunion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Momof2inSC Good place to stay
We had two rooms and had no complaints.
We had to leave the motel at 6 a.m. and although they did not officially open breakfast until 6:30 they were kind enough to put out most of the breakfast items for us. That was really kind and helpful since we were headed out to a bike race.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JudyFromUpstateNY Nice room, very quiet, and great breakfast!
We enjoyed our night at the Holiday Inn across from Dorney Park, and it was really fun to be able to see the park. Easy drive into downtown Allentown, too. But the room was very quiet and pleasant -- we were glad to be getting away from it all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AnnoyedNeverAgain Worst Hotel Stay EVER
The staff was great. Very friendly and welcoming, from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. What was not great was the room.
We had the misfortune of being placed on the first floor, right next to the lobby. I was going to ask that we be moved but didnt want to be one of those guests, so I stayed. BIG MISTAKE.
1. I had to keep the curtains closed at all times so that everyone in the parking lot wasnt staring into my room.
2. The walls were VERY thin. The next morning I was woken up early by slamming doors. At first I assumed that it was a hotel guest because surely the staff wouldn't be slamming doors that early.
I was unable to fall back asleep because the door continued to be slammed shut at one minute intervals. On top of this I could hear all of the chairs being moved around in the breakfast area.
When I went to get breakfast, the selection was to my satisfaction and there was still plenty of food left towards the end of service and there was no rush to get guests out of there, which I appreciated.
BUT while there, I realized that the slamming door I heard all morning came from the breakfast area as staff was continuously coming in and out of an employees only door to the kitchen area. They couldn't invest in a swinging door?? I am sure that I am not the first guest to complain about this problem.
Overall horrible and not worth the kinda money they charge.

This is certainly my hotel of choice. My wife and I Stayed here three times in the past 6 months, and each time was better than the previous. Staff was extremely accommodating, always a very warm and friendly morning or evening greeting. The room was very spacious, clean and odor free and quiet. The appliances were adequate. The breakfast was delectable even though there were not such a wide variety. All in all, I do not see myself staying at any other Hotel in that vicinity.

From the time we walked in, the staff were welcoming and helpful for us. We weren't there for Dorney Park but feel the location of the Inn is great for that and reaching all areas of the Leigh Valley. We have stayed here before when our son attended Muhlenberg and looked forward to coming back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Srrr Good Customer Service and Quiet property
I am a business traveler and have stayed in multiple hotels, brands and locations. This location is excellent. No highway under your window, easy to locate, and enough good resturants and shopping close by. The rooms are pretty sound proof as I am a light sleeper and have no problem staying asleep which has been an issue in other places.
Very friendly staff, front desk staff is very pleasant and personable.

We had a great stay at the HI at Dorney Park. The desk staff was super! The young lady who assisted us went far and beyond by correcting our priorty card status and finding out how many points we had accumulated. We will definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EB58 several stays at this hotel
We have stayed in this hotel several times during visits to Allentown. As usual the staff was very friendly and helpful.
However, our room was on the first floor this last visit and at about 6 AM it sounded like some one was continuously opening drawers, the continuous noise was very disruptive to sleep. I suspect our room was very close to the kitchen or near the conference room. In any event on future visits I will request we not be located on the first floor.
In general this is our preferred hotel in the Allentown area.
