Pottsville Motor Inn

Reviewed 28 July 2007

This place is a real dump. Cockroach in the room. Manager does not always answer the phone for incoming calls. No high speed internet, no coffee, hot water in shower goes on and off, toilet would not flush properly---manager wanted me to put in new device inside toilet tank to fix it---looked at him like he was crazy. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

Reviewed 1 October 2006

My wife and I suffered a break-down with our Ford E-150 van and had to be towed into town to the local Ford dealership. The Pottsville Motor Inn is located next door to the dealership. As I am in a wheelchair and there is no sidewalk to the dealership we had no other choice of where to stay. Darn. The rooms stank horribly and were rarely if ever cleaned. The manager was rude and even tried to charge us $20.00 extra per night for our service dog. He waived the extra charge after my wife called the sheriff to educate the man on the rights and privileges of service dogs in America. We were appalled with the Motor Inn's book keeping practices which we found highly questionable and very suspicious. After swiping my wife's credit card he wrote all the personal information down ( card #, expiration ) on the registration form and put the paper in a box behind the desk. My wife spoke with her bank and on the bank's advice cancelled her card. The bank also advised her to call the Pottsville Police and inform them of this unusual and unnecessary practice. If you find yourself having to stay in Pottsville, PA and pass by the Pottsville Motor Inn do yourself a favor and keep on going.

the room was over priced . very cold, no tv channels. very little hot water. i was unable to recieve phone calls in my room. i had to stand out side in the cold and wait for the manger to return before i could get into a room. i felt that he was rude. the only thing good is the girl who cleans the rooms dose a realy good job.
