My husband and I visited the area to attend the June Pocono NASCAR race and wanted to find something near the track, but not too close, for lodging. We chose Wingate based upon the location and pricing along with previous reviews.
We flew from Phoenix into Philadelphia and drove to Allentown arriving early evening. The reception received by the front desk was pleasant and helpful although the 25+ young kids in the lobby was a bit concerning. We had reserved a king room, requested quiet, with a Jacuzzi tub which is what we received. The kids seemed to be with a group and were focused on the pool area, which is understandable. Once we were in the room at the end of the hall we didn’t really hear them, although the walking noses in the room above us was a bit concerning. We left for dinner and upon our return most of the kids were out of the lobby area. We were tired and fell asleep after a hot bath.
Next morning we were up early to drive to the racetrack and grabbed a quick bite of the free continental breakfast. I think the number of kids multiplied over night! No worries, we have since discovered that there is a large amusement park only minutes away so that mystery is solved. Bagels, coffee, juice and some fruit and we were off.
Upon returning the room was made up neatly, towels replaced, everything cleaned. The rooms are a bit dated, but again, I knew that going there as we were basically using the hotel for sleeping a couple of nights and not expecting luxury.
Check-out was pleasant as I wove through the lobby as a bus of young teens was just arriving, and another leaving! Organized chaos but the staff remained friendly. We would consider staying at Allentown Wingate again if we return for a future race.
