This was a Hotwire "Mystery" Hotel (3 stars/$51 a night), and much like DMLMK said it's hard to complain at that rate, but there's no way it's worth the $95-$110/night they want. Room was clean, though I arrived to find a non working air conditioner unit, which after I inspected it turned out to just be unplugged. Plenty of parking, and they have several entrances so you can always park very close to your room, which is my key complaint about the nearby Radisson. They have laundry machines which I needed to utilize, but one had standing brown water (check the machines before putting clothes in, thank god I did) and I had to wait awhile to get my hands on the one that was working, seems like laundry is a popular thing to do at this hotel. Speaking of the laundry room, the hotel advertises having an arcade/game room, well the laundry room is also the game room, 3 machines, one not working, as a gamer I'm a little dissappointed in that. The pool is outdoor, and with my stay being in January I obviously didn't utilize it. The amenity list is a little lacking considering that this is a non express holiday inn. To me this is pretty much a Holiday Inn Express that charges for breakfast. There's also a Dunkin Donuts in the parking lot. Hotel is right by a "slip ramp" for the PA Turnpike, you can get off the eastbound turnpike and get back on the eastbound turnpike if you have an ezpass, otherwise the "full" interchange is about a mile west of the hotel. I-95 is not too far either, but you have to drive on the traffic light littered Street Road for several miles.
Bottom line, 4 stars thanks to Hotwire, would have been 3 if I had paid the full rate, it's overpriced.
