Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ALEVY11554 Great Hotel for the money
HI Express and Suites is a good location and hotel just outside of Bethlehem and Crayola Factory. While the hotel offers a great place to stay the breakfasts can be outright cold. Just about everything for breakfast except the pancakes and coffee was cold or room temperature. Something most HI Expresses have done well this location has not. How can something as simple as this be so hard to do. Most of the food is prepared before hand.
Also the WIFI is almost non existent. If you find it you can't use it because you cant connect. Bring a network cable with you for your room to plug into the port.

I reserved two rooms the day before with my credit card. Upon check-in, I was told I was "lucky" to have arrived before 6:00 or they would have given my room away. I told the front desk I had a confirmation number and she insisted I did not. She then proceeded to tell me the other room was checked into, but she could not put my two rooms together, because they weren't confirmed. The air conditioning in the room did not work properly; adjusting the temp setting did not work. The room became unbearably hot and we could not sleep. The shower had some mold/mildew. Wifi in the room was sporadic. The breakfast was adequate, but for the cost I would have stayed in a less expensive hotel and gone to a restaurant. The senior discount was zero and a senior breakfast would have been a lot cheaper elsewhere. The senior discount only allows you to book without a deposit. In fact, booking 9 days in advance is a cheaper rate. Finally, Beware of the horrible entrance/exit right below the hotel. You must go slow, because it is a HUGE bump. Stay across the street at another hotel. It's half the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Slumber28 Comfortable room, but....
Comfortable accommodations and pleasant service, however, my 3-star rating for room cleanliness was due to the significant amount of mildew on the bathroom shower tiles. Actually, it was quite jarring to pull back the shower curtains for the first time and see black grime on the walls (gross). A daily dose of Tilex is probably all it needed, but somehow this part of the cleaning was overlooked. Otherwise, the beds were comfortable and the room was spacious and accommodating.

When we arrived at 10:30 Pm. Rupi behind the counter was having a difficult time checking us in. She ran our card, said no it was declined. My husband said run it again there is plenty of money. She did and it didn't work. My husband ask for a manager and she told us no one was available, it was only her. So my husband gave her a new card and it didn't work. So he said there must be something wrong with the way you are doing it and she replied very rude and insulting us "no, The lady card before you worked fine." My husband told her to get someone else. So she said her supervisor was on her way. The supervisor took the card after she got there with no sense of urgency or friendliness herself. Rupi started defending herself and talking over my husband when he was explaining what was going on. On the first try of running card the supervisor got it to work. Rupi needs some training on how to do her job and how to be respectful to her customers. We will never visit this hotel again. All the employees we encountered gave us the impression they hated their job and it made us feel like we shouldn't spend our money with this hotel chain.

We were traveling on business and had to vacate one hotel and move to this HIE. Stephanie---the front desk clerk---allowed us an early check in (before Noon) and upgraded us to a suite.
Hotel is light and airy; parking lot clean and open; staff all friendly and helpful; breakfast had plentiful choices.
We love this hotel chain!

This hotel was in a good location for me and easy to get to. I had stayed there on previous visits to the area.

I was traveling with my 9 year old son and was very impressed how attentive all the staff were in looking out for our interests. They asked how they could help frequently and were very friendly.
