“Worst motel ever!”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

We ended up here using PL for a great savings to take the family to the poconos for the weekend for my birthday. 1st rm was very nasty, overwhelming odor of tobacco and a musty smell. We had air freshener,didn't help. The bathroom tiles and molding were missing and buckled. tub had mold stains all over. Whole room was very dirty. Cob web everywhere. We asked for a non smoking room double beds he said they didn't have rooms like that!..LOL later a new employee showed up and gave us one.It was cleaner but the blankets had cigarette burns all over them (I MEAN ALOT). We woke up the next morning to find big black crickets had gotten squashed by us in our bed! We got up (me freaking out) packed up everything went to get some hot tea/coffee from their continental breakfast and the office was locked we had to wait till the guy came it later. It was 7am and we left. Stopped at a diner insted didn't take showers or anything it was soooooooooooo grossssss! We will never use PL ever again for putting us there!False Advertisement on both parts!

Great location if you want to go to Mount Airy Casino. Rooms not the cleanest but not dirty either. Bathroom could use updating, pillows are flat bed not the best. All in all it's ok for one night. I did not see any bugs as was mentioned in earlier reviews. There is a fridge and microwave in room. Not any coffe maker as mentioned on website

fellow travelers ....for gawd sake's do not stay at this hotel . please take heed to all of the other negative reviews that this dumpy hotel has received. my husband and i stayed at this hotel this past weekend. we were suppose to stay for 2 nights but the conditions were so bad we got up the next morning and called around and found another hotel to stay at . the room was very smelly . it had a sickening damp musty over bearing smoke smell . the bed side telephone was from a super 8 motel . the filth and grime build up on the phone was terrible . the number buttons were stuck on it . the room was filthy and full of cob webs on the ceilings and lamp shades. the room itself was full of spiders and etc . we used clothes hangers to clean out 3 big cob webs and spiders out of the shower / bath tub . there was only 1 towel and 1 washcloth to use . there was no water to the sink . the pillows were as flat as a newspaper . the bed seemed like a glorified board with cloth on top of it . i have never seen such a dirty filthy unsanitary and unsafe hotel room as this one . my husband and i took pictures to document our complaints . i could go on and on about this hotel ..... but i am sure you get the picture ....... stay away from this place . spend a few more dollars on a hotel room that is more decent .

Room Tip: there is nothing i can say or will say that will get other travelers to stay at this dump !! do...

First of all the person at the front desk was not helpful at all. Apart from that the hotel was terribly dirty! And the smell was horrible! We stayed there for just one night and just because we did not find anywhere else to stay. Although it would have been better if we slept in our car!! Definately think twice befors staying here.. The money we paid was NOT worthed at all!!

My husband and I spent the night to see a concert that was at the Mt Airy Casino. We couldn't really afford the $300+ rate of the casino so we decided to book at the Travelodge. It had descent reviews and was located 1 mile from the casino. Well the non-smoking rooms smelled like the bottom of an ash tray not to mention the smell of mold was overwhelming. I did not even put my suite case on the floor. There were cigarette burns in the comforter and TV. The room felt really damp as well. We cranked the heater before we left for the concert to heat up the room and by the time we got back 10 hours later it was still cold. We actually attempted to get a room at the casino and pay the price, but they were completely booked, as were most of the other hotels in the area. If we had the option, we would have left.

Also beware of the address. The GPS did not take us to the location based on the above address, its almost directly across from the casino on the intersection of woodland road and 611. Ridiculous!

THE Room odor was so bad we stayed out of the room as much as possible.It smelled like mold and had a musty odor.There were spider webs around the window. The toilet and sink in the bathroom was not bolted down tight, Shook every time we used them. Pillows on bed had sweat stains probably from other guest, did not have covers on them so we did not use them.The room just felt dirty. Will not stay in hotel 8 again.
