When you first exit the highway to head to this hotel you will be greeted by a not so great looking industrial area and a gentleman's club in front of you. The hotel itself borders train tracks, a 7-11 and a fireworks store. However, we never felt unsafe and you need to look beyond the surroundings because this is a fabulous hotel perhaps not in the prettiest location. It is also only a quick 5 minute drive from Sesame Place and for the savings in the package price we found it plenty convenient for the park. There aren't many amenities in the immediate area around the hotel as far as restaurants but there are plenty just up the road in Langhorne near Sesame Place which is where we spent most of our time.
We stayed here as part of a Sesame Place package and from the moment we walked in and received a little goodie bag with coupons for Sesame Place and a bag of cookies for the kids to share we could tell the hotel was up to the challenge of catering to families of small children. On the Sunday we were there a balloon and face painting artist was in the lobby during breakfast . They also have decals of Sesame characters on the walls and the breakfast attendant handed out crayons and coloring pages during breakfast. All of these were nice added extras.
The outdoor pool while not huge is ideal for families. It was warm and the maximum depth is 5 feet. I am sure it would be more crowded during a peak time of the year but we found it empty both times we used it.
The front desk staff was all wonderful. We had to make several requests to the desk for extra towels and supplies and they were always able to help us out even late at night after we had returned from a day in the park.
The only downside was the Sesame Place package site clearly listed "1 King Bed and is a Non-Smoking room. Also Included: Sofa bed for 2 people...". We arrived expecting a sofa bed and found that instead there was a chair and ottoman. We had brought a cot for one of our children but thought there would be bedding for the other child. Since there wasn't we had to pay the 10 dollar a day fee to add a roll away bed to the room.
Overall we would recommend this hotel as a good base for spending time at Sesame Place. You will always be warmly greeted by the front desk staff and come back to a clean and comfortable room after a busy day at the park.
