I will admit that the outside of Hotel Bethlehem (the back view at least) left me a little frightened. Once we went inside however, it turned our to be a nicely restored, charming old hotel. The rooms are not large - it is old after all, but they are suitable. The bathroom is small but has been remodeled well. Bath products are Bath & Body Works so no complaints there. The walls are thin - we could hear our neighbor's radio but they soon turned it off. The main draw of the Hotel Bethlehem is its charm and location. The lobby is perfect and the location is right in the middle of downtown Bethlehem. There's a great bagel place across the street for breakfast where everyone was super friendly. We didn't have much interaction with staff at the hotel but everyone appeared willing to help. Parking was a little limited and I can imagine it would be a problem if the hotel were at capacity. The parking is free though which is always a nice treat for travelers. Overall, I thought it was a very cute, quaint hotel. There are some areas of improvement that could be made (size of baths and noise levels) but those things typically come along with older hotels. The location is great and I would still recommend Hotel Bethlehem.
