Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by S2000ap1 Comfortable room - noise from pool and highway annoying
The room was adequate, clean and comfortable. It lacked a fridge which has become more of a standard than a luxury these days. One annoying problem was noise, they put me in a room over the pool and along the side where a major highway ran. Kids were in the pool unsupervised well past the pool hours and the noise was very disturbing. I was staying 3 nights so I thought I might get a room away from the noise but that wasn't the case. Also no ice machine on 2nd floor, just on 1st and 3rd floors and of course I was on the second floor.
Overall the accommodations were adequate for the location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suzanne31 Clean and modern
The room was very clean. The bedding looked newer. There was a choice of a soft or firm pillow. The bed was comfortable.
The bathroom was very clean and modern.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
On a down side the second floor hallway smelled of body odor. However, the room was fine. I noticed new rugs in second floor hall and wonder if that caused the order?
The wi-fi connection was poor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Babble Good and Safe but with a Leaky Fridge
You have to set your GPS to Point of Interest and keyed in McDonald White Haven to reach this outlet. This Holiday Inn is very close to Lehigh Gorge State Park.
We had a 2 Queen Bed studio suite. It was a bit cramped compared to the Holiday Inn on GAR Highway in Rhode Island but was still adequate. The suite was quiet saved for the air-conditioning unit. We still slept sweetly through the night.
The 3D pancake printer in the breakfast area was the smartest one we came across in the chain. They also offered crispy bacon.
The condition of the mini-fridge made me wonder if my cooler worked better, even after a day of activity in warm weather. The small freezer compartment in the mini-fridge was leaking water. We had to consume the BBQ meat the next day.
For the price though, HI-White Haven Lake Harmony was overall a smart choice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FF462 Uncomfortable Beds and LOUD Rooms
While this hotel is certainly in a good location given the remoteness of the area along 476, I was first concerned when there was a line at Check-In at 11:30 pm due to open Vacancy on a Friday night, which is usually unheard of in a IHG hotel property.
As an IHG Priority club member, a gold member at that, I am used to be greeted at every IHG brand hotel I stay at as a member and am thanked by either bonus points or a complimentary snack bag, which I look forward to after long drives. However, out of all my stays at IHG hotels, this was the first time I was not greeted or thanked for being a loyal member and was not offered any bonus points or snack bag.
As for the room, right away I should have been alarmed that there were complimentary ear plugs provided in the room. Should I have actually used them, they would have provided useful given the noise from doors slamming in the hall way to the people above us. This noise was the worst I have ever experienced at any hotel, especially an IHG brand.
Overall the bathroom was spacious and modern as was the room, but some standard hotel amenities were not available, such as a Fridge and Security Safe.
Additionally, granted I was given a King size bed, but I was only given 4 total pillows, all of which were not comfortable and neither was the bed. Usually I have the option of 6 pillows, all of which has different softness or firmness. This was by the far the worst overall sleep I have got from a IHG brand hotel, especially for one that is modern.
As for the breakfast, it is like all other Holiday Inn express breakfasts with fake microwavable eggs, sausage, pancakes, bagels, toast, cinnamon buns, coffee, and juice.
While a convenient location, I probably would not stay here again nor do I really recommend it unless you are in a bind and need somewhere to stay, then this hotel should suffice.

Comfortable rooms. If you need wifi, forget about it. They offer it but to get connected and stay connected was horrible. I thought it was me but I disgust this issue with other guest and they had the same problem. Also, the breakfast was horrible. The staff was ok. The beds were comfortable. just giving you a heads up. There is only fast food and a Wawa to eat at. You have to drive at least 15 minutes to find some food

This was our second stay at the Lake Harmony Holiday Inn Express and we were not disappointed. The room was clean and well appointed and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast staff were particularly friendly and went out of their way to be kind to our kids which was a very nice touch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kaustav quick quiet stay
We had planned for a quick overnight getaway to the Poconos with an objective to just hang back and relax. The Holiday Inn express suites hotel is just off exit 277 on 80W. this is a quiet area about 10-20 miles from the main Poconos attractions... so not too far off and definitely quiet.
We had a good time lazing in the indoor pool, almost had it for ourselves and then was recommended a fabulous restaurant about 3-4 miles from the property which turned out to be very good. The hotel staff was courteous and Debbie was extremely friendly offering local tips around the area. It was her recommendation to go to the Forks Family restaurant and the food was really good.
Breakfast at the property as with other Holiday Inn Express properties was good and ample. refills were prompt and in general was very happy with the service. Being close to everything, we could do the Bushkill falls, outlet mall and return home all in good time.
Would definitely consider staying there again

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stad7 Dated
We stay at Holiday Inn Expresses very often. This one was the most expensive that we have stayed in but the most out of date and worn out. The rooms were okay but not great. The beds were nice but the rugs were kinda gross and there were no mini-fridges like other Holiday Inn Expresses. The floors of our rooms were so thin that our walking on them caused distress to the folks below. We could hear anything that people said in the hall as clearly as if they were in the room with us. The pool was okay but there was a nasty dead bug on the pool deck. Also, the surrounding area is bleak, no place to get food aside from McDonalds. It was a very disappointing stay. We will never stay at this location again.

Great layout of rooms to pool and restaurant. Main whirlpool is seamlessly built into end of pool, perfect temperature and jet power. In-room Jacuzzi not so powerful, barely pushed water from jets. Perfect cleanliness and hospitality. You can't go wrong with this property.

Took my fiance away for a relaxing weekend. We Decided to spend Saturday in, and roam around Hickory Run State Park on Sunday. With what seemed to be a full house, it was fairly quiet, and, although breakfast was a mad house, it was a good weekend away.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis1966 Clean rooms is only positive
Arrived on 2/14 , we were given a room across from pool on first floor , which i thought would be great for kids, not necessarily. When approaching our room we noticed a family , that kept there room door propped open so the children can run freely in and out of room ,as well as parents having easy access to the alcoholic beverages( this was very trashy, these people shoulda stayed at a motel if they wanted to live this way). Very noisy in hotel , could hear everything, foot traffic above us, people walking in hallways , tvs in other rooms. On 2nd night of stay we were awaken by several young children screaming and playing at 11:30pm , with no parents to be found. When we attempted to contact front desk, no one answered. After handling noise situation ourselves, ( pool was supposed to be closed at 10pm , kids had no concept of time when screaming at 1130!, where were theyre parents!) . We were finally able to track down manager a half hour later, he said he was outside shoveling snow.. yeah right!..Our stay could have been a little better if management staff did theyre job by making sure there was no access to pool after hours , controlling the noise level by coming out from behind desk to check hallway once in a while. Also , as a side note , breakfast was "ok" thats all. not many choices for a hotel such as this one. There are other resorts in area that have indoor water parks , and have alot under one roof, such as multiple restaurants, and not much more expensive than Holiday Inn...This hotel also very isolated . mcdonalds and wawa only places nearby. everything else at least 5 miles away

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by M_Ski Comfortable Room and Friendly Staff
I stay at this hotel quite frequently and it is always clean and the staff is always very nice. One area that I do recommend improvement is their breakfast. The breakfast here always seems to be cold, the bisquits are hard as a rock, and the variety is much slimmer than other Holiday Inn Express locations. One of the main reasons I choose to stay at Holiday Inn Expresses over other hotel chains is due to the hot breakfast at no additional charge. This past Saturday, there were no breakfast meats and the pancake machine was down again. Only hot choices were eggs (which were cold) and sausage gravy. Besides breakfast, all other area's of my stay were very enjoyable and I have no complaints.

Very friendly staff at the Holiday Inn Express! We arrived in a snow storm and the front desk staff was so nice. It was a young man, cannot remember his name. He gave us a member gift and thanked us for being members. Our room was upgraded.
The next night we wanted to have dinner and recommended a nice place to eat.

Room was exceptionallly clean and very neat. Beds were comfortable and all items in room were in order. Stayed with wife and two children and all had a pleasant experience. Staff was mainly friendly and hospitable.
Only downsides I can see with my experience were that the manager who took us in on Sunday morning was more interested in tending to the cutsomer phone calls and reservations rather than the customers who were actually standing in the lobby. I would think it would have been the other way around. Happened more than once too.
Other downside was that there is no eating establishement on the premises. Would have been nice to be able to go somewhere right in the hotel to order a meal.
