“Run, Run, Run For Your Life!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

We checked in early and we were told our room wasn't cleaned and ready yet so they gave us a double bed room for the same price as a single bed. As we walked in my huband and children and I were greeted by a musty moldy sort of smell, which progressively got worse as we headed toward the bathroom, where we found rusted out base board heaters, running toilet and hair in the bathtub drain. We checked the microwave and it was filthy with splattered dried on food. The remote was missing batteries, there were stains on the chairs. The carpet was smelly and dirty so much so we didn't want to take our shoes off. BUT, the worst of all was when we tried to pull out the sofa bed and there was a large greasy black stain on the cushions and as we pulled the bed out a mouse jumped out, there was a massive amount of mouse droppings all over the mattress and linings. If this was the clean we were offered in place of our original room...I shudder to think what that looked like!!!! During the height of the thunder storm my husband packed up so quickly I was still getting our room refunded and explaining the horrible conditions in the room to the desk clerk. I have been in many hotels, but this one took the cake. The entire way home we were all itching and scratching at the thought of what we experienced.

Room Tip: There are NO good rooms here, just leave!!!!!! Oh, and there is no swimming pool or fitness center...

checked in on sunday for about 42+tax. I used a coupon in the Penn travel magazine. Checked out the room first making sure it was clean. Average motel. Good parking right in front of your room. Truck drivers bobtail only. Expedited trucks OK. Lots of restaurants nearby. One next door. Shopping centers close by. Lots of channel on TV plus free high speed internet. For under $ 50 bucks its OK. clean and descent. I checked in on Sunday so not many people around. 3 stars coz its under $50 bucks.

We did stay at your motel in Allentown on the night of October 16th and it was the worst nightmare ever! The hotel advises guests in the lobby to be careful with their personal belongings but in reality what you need is a baseball bat! We were awaken around midnight by noises from outside and the noise was from a young working really hard at stealing our bikes locked on the car!! When disturbed by my telling him "hey - need any help" he ran away and most probably joined his friends who were just next to the break room you have there. I did go to the office to advise the young man working at the Reception desk - not sure this changed anything! Furthermore, the breakfast offered is of terrible quality with coffee tasting like water and bread and danishes so hard that it is ridiculous to expect guests to eat this! In summary, we had a terrible experience and security is totally absent from your motel and guests do not feel safe. So after a sleepless night we could not wait to get out and get back on the road.

DON’T STAY HERE! I made reservations for a Non-Smoking room with a Kingsize bed. When we arrived at the hotel the reservation clerk told me that all the Kingsize rooms were gone but she could give me a room with 2 double beds for the same price! We left to visit family without going to the room (BIG mistake). When we arrived back at the hotel at 9:30pm the 1st thing we noticed was that there were no rooms marked as non-smoking. Our room smelled like someone had just put out a cigarette but there were no ashtrays so I guess it was “non-smoking”. The outside wall of our room was located about 35 feet from a busy highway that had truck traffic all night long and it sounded like you were outside listening to them. The bathroom’s wallpaper was peeling and there was mildew in all the cracks. On the dresser was a Monroe Muffler flier that had a wad of chewing gum stuck to it and the bathtub was full of hairs (not ours). They claim to have a “continental breakfast”but this consists 2’ x 2’ table in the entry way with a plate of Friehoffer Donuts and a pot of coffee with no place to sit to eat and it was too small for more than 2 people to stand. WHAT A DUMP!

This place is a 60s-era (or earlier) motel that has delusions of adequacy. The room decor was dated and the bathroom blind looked like it hadn't been cleaned since the 60s. We had to extend our stay in Allentown due to a surgical problem with a relative and our Quality Inn was full for the extra night. I decided to give this place a try based on the one good review. Their price of $99 for 2 double beds is a joke, but we weren't able to check out the room before we booked due to our personal schedule. Stay here only if you're desperate (as we were). One good thing - the room has 6mb cable internet, but bring your own ethernet cable!

I had 4 different encounters with this place. The first was when they were the McIntosh Inn. It was amazing! cheap, able to check in under 21, and not dirty at all. the people were also extremly courteous. That was in the summer of 07. In winter of 07, it had changed over to the Scottish inn and was not to bad, the only problem was that the lady at the desk was very wierd and called the police on me and my boyfriend because she didn't understand the fact that a charge on a credit card stays pending. after the police called her illiterate we were free to go. In spring of 08 this place still wasn't completly bad. There were alot more families living in it as if it were their home, and bathrooms were kinda gross but i dealt with it because i didn't have any other choice only being 19 and desperate for a place to stay (I'm from jersey so it wasn't a quick trip home). A few weeks later I had to make the trip again to straighten out problems from school and it may have been the worst adult decision of my life. As if the newly posted sign which stated they weren't responsible for any person getting hurt wasn't enough, the toilet wouldn't flush on the first try and the shower wouldn't drain. And then to top it all off THEY HAD BED BUGS! i woke up with bites all over my face arms and back. When we brought this up with management for a room switch, we were vague about the desription of what we thought it could b saying only that we got bit and they knew immediatly what it was! they tryed to transfer us to the scottish inn on Hausmann and the second we opened the door a rat ran by! This was a horrible experience and i advise anyone not to go here! its a week later and im still scratchin and itching like crazy. And the worse part is, they charged full price and didn't want to lower it. Needless to say we called the department of health that day, but i advise to JUST STAY AWAY!

Very nice. It is a small motel, nothing fancy. But the room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. Nice king size bed, nice size room. If you just want a decent place to sleep, this is it. The location was perfect for us, close to everything we wanted. There is also a shopping center across the street.
The staff was very friendly. They had a little continental breakfast in the morning. The restaurant next door is good and prices are reasonable. The rates are great! Wonderful value.
