Budget Host Pottstown
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in New Berlinville
Reviewed 28 March 2014

If you're looking for accommodations similar to a Hilton, Comfort Inn, or even a Days Inn, move on. If you're looking for a clean room on a budget and aren't particular if the furnishings are new, you have velvety and plush towels, or even a garden tub, then you've found a good place.

I stayed here for work and got a king room. The bed's a bit firm, but comfortable. I prefer flatter pillows, so this place was great. The bathroom is on the smallish side with a tile shower, but it's clean. There is DirecTV on a 24" flatscreen. WiFi is very good; fast and never was dropped once. There's a small fridge and coffee maker in the room as well. Now my room was a little drafty by the door but that's not a big deal to me even though it was cold out for most of my stay. Like dogtired2010 said, there are workarounds.

I also want to add that the owner is very friendly and accommodating. She even took my laundry to the local cleaners for me since I never got back to the room before closing time. You just don't see people like that very often and it's little things like that which make you remember a place.

All in all it's a gem that's a little rough around the edges, but is worth it if you can look past any cosmetic hangups you might have. Also, if you don't mind being in a more rural/small town setting, you'll probably like this place. If I'm in the area again for work, this place is the first one I will call. I have even recommended it to a couple of my colleagues.

its a older motel but the owners seem to want to keep it up as they live on site and are friendly and helpful. prices were great. room comfortable if a bit dated but the furniture looked all new and the king bed was very comfortable. my only concern was a all night party in the other building by what seemed to be full time residents, im surprised other guests in that building who were woke up in the early am did not complain. over all a nice clean place in farm country but convient to every thing and i will stay there again

my family and i have used the meldor motel for over 15 years while visiting friends in the boyertown area....in the past, the rooms were not fancy, but always well kept, clean and comfortable...last time we stayed two years ago, they were getting a little run down, but...when we needed to stay again this past wkend, figured we would be okay...its budget host now, should be okay, right??!!? NOT! the room upon check in was filthy....toliet looked like it had not been cleaned after someone had been very sick..... floors were scum dirty...walls ... mirrors, everything was a disgrace...i dont mind the rusty tissue holder..but when it looks like feces and goodness knows what else on walls, pictures and light switches...cigarette burns in the bedspreads and blankets.... if the owners read this, and i did let them know we were very unhappy, please.....dont disgrace a quaint, awesome town like the boyertown area by letting the motel get any worse....get a serious cleaning crew in there....on the positive, so far no bedbugs...

Room Tip: check out your room before you pay.....

Not on all the big sites but the best value near Barto/Pottstown. Outside Corridors accomodated my elderly dog nicely plus nearby grass for dog-walking. Reasonable pet fee (10). Clean comfortable room. Sure I could find lots wrong with it and give it a terrible review
for stupid reasons like the tissue dispenser was rusty, the ceiling had been repaired or there were no instructions for the Direct TV, they give you only soap and shampoo, no overhead lights....but all are either unimportant in the grand scheme, or there were workarounds.

A friend stayed here and also liked it. Convenient to Route 100 and close to Boyertown. Gas, convenience store and cheesesteak shop half mile south a plus. Rustler2010's review was accurate and helpful. Nice shower - fine but powerful mist.

Room Tip: Rooms on East side further from highway, closer to office. Adequate grass for dog-walking.
