Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Allentown / Dorney

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Rundown"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This hotel is rundown, with broken fixtures and walls, torn carpet, etc. The clerks at checkin were unwelcoming. The hotel is way overpriced for value. We’ll never stay there again.

13-Jul-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jul 02 to Sat Jul 03 2021 at a $120.99 average nightly rate.
"Not fit for a Dog Literally!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I booked this hotel because I was traveling with my dog and was assured that the hotel accommodated animals. While at the hotel which was dirty, loud and outdated I was challenged about my dog on multiple occasions by hotel staff. When I went to have breakfast, I was yelled literally YELLED at by a staff member who was serving breakfast and told my dog could not be in the dining area even after another staffperson had told me it was okay. There were some sketchy people hanging around the lobby when I checked in and the desk personnel had difficulty locating my reservation even though it had been made less than half an hour prior. I ended up checking out at 6 a.m. because these people were so awful. I do NOT recommend.

Overall Score4.0/ 5
I was lost in a snow storm and the front desk stayed on the line with me guiding me through a tricky turn until I arrived safely ! The front desk was super friendly and accommodating during a snowstorm that stranded customers for two days.
