I almost feel silly giving it 4 stars because it really was basic, but other than a cracked window in the hallway and being in need of a little sprucing up, this place was great and a great value (around $120). I usually stay in more upscale places. I was on my way to a golf outing up in the Poconos and needed a place to spend the night. This was absolutely acceptable and easy on and off from the highway.

I came in the a.m after working a night shift at Lehigh Valley Hospital hoping to get a room to sleep so I can go back to work that evening. The receptionist was so professional & graceful they had a room for me that was very clean & very well-kept . The room and the hotel was newly renovated,everyone was just so polite. I was given a gift baggy with a sleep mask, ear plugs & earphones. It was clear they wanted me to be very comfortable. I also received a call that evening from the receptionist wanting to make sure that I was okay and all my needs were fulfilled. Amazing hotel five star all the way. I have stayed in many hotels in Allentown this is the best thus far. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I cannot remembering advising without reservation to not stay at a hotel for any reason. This may be a first. The service at this hotel is non existent, the rooms are not cleaned or made up, and the place looks abandoned. In other words, THIS HOTEL IS CLOSED as of Dec 22, 2017. Rumor has it that it has been purchased and will be remodeled and reopened under another brand.

As a rewards member, I stay in a lot of your properties. This was my first visit to Allentown, I stayed 3 days over the Thanksgiving Holiday.Downtown Allentown seems to be in a revival, sadly your hotel is not. Room was ok, but in my opinion you should strive for much better for the price. Curtains where stained, the heating system stayed the same regardless of what I did, I wonder why? I even put the A/C on with no change. No housekeeping on Thanksgiving, which is the way it should be, but it would have been nice to know. The breakfast there is a JOKE. My family and I went down a little after 9am, we had a appt. at 10:30, should have been plenty of time. Food didn't arrive til 10:15, which we couldn't box. I inquired if it was like this all the time and was I told it was. I like the Holiday Inn brand, they have really improved over the years, but not this one. I think it could be a large part of the revival of Allentown if it wanted to be. I plan to be Allentown a lot in the near future, I don't want to look for other chains.

Dear ChesapeakeCoach, I appreciate you providing your honest feedback here of our hotel.

It is about 8 minutes driving but 30 minutes to walk. However, with the Fair traffic and parking issues, walking might be best!

They have a restaurant, but, no complimentary breakfast. There is a very nice restaurant right across the street.....sorry, forget the name, but it was very good for breakfast.
