Scottish Inns & Suites, Allentown

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Dirty, shredded carpeting and collapsing ceiling material. Carpet so disgusting that I wouldn't remove my socks during the stay

This motel is in a very good location. Plenty of food options in the area. The price of the stay very very good. The free breakfast is ok. However, my main concern is the cleanliness of the rooms and facilities. If they improve their cleaning services, I would say this is the best deal in the tri-state area. Unfortunately, their hotel needs more diligent cleaning staff.

I already told you it was filthy so please do not ask me for another review!

Right from the start this hotel was an adventure, From someone managing to open the door with their key to a broken faucet that came right off the fixture this hotel never stopped providing my girlfriend and I with unpleasant surprises. When we first walked into the room we were taken back by how dirty the room was. Bits of paper and lose change littered the floor. The sheets were old to the point of being transparent and covered in stains. The toilet was in desperate need of a good scrubbing as it developed a ring at the water line. The phone and alarm clock were sticky and the chair at the desk was filled with crumbs. Just to top everything off the "Do not disturb" sign had "Don't forget to tip house keeping" Scribbled on it in purple sharpie. Structurally the hotel walls were paper thin and you could hear the television from next door, as well as the conversations people were having in the hallway. If you need to stay in Bethlehem for an extended stay this is not the place!

The location of the hotel is very good. If you need to eat , there are two diners by the hotel. Also, the hotel is very close to the airport and important highways. In addition, there is a strip mall in front of the hotel. You will find a grocery store, small department store, and various ethnic restaurants. The beds of the hotel were very comfortable. However, this hotel needs renovation and refurbishing urgently. The front desk people were very friendly and courteous, but those in charge of cleaning the room were neither dilligent nor thorough. In essence this hotel is not for families. However, if your are tough and need a comfortable bed at the most convenient location, this hotel does the job very well.

I was pleasantly surprised with my stay, needed a cheap hotel to spend the night after missing my flight and for the price, it's not bad. Could use some work on cleaniness, but not bad. People in other rooms seemed kinda sketchy but I wasn't bothered.

Came to Allentown for a convention. Chose the Scottish Inn because had a really good rate. Well, you know how it is right? You get what you pay for . But that is not a problem for me, i'm the most reasonable person out there, especially when i only need a place to sleep , nothing else. The problem is that the Scottish Inn is perhaps one of the most unsafe place I've ever been too, and coming from NYC i can assure you it takes a bit. Not because of the tenants and people living in the motel, but mostly from the staff practice: Forgot my key in my room, late at night, went to the reception side window to ask a replacement key, the person working at the desk thought it was a nice gesture to give me one WITHOUT asking for any form of ID. Just asked me : "Sure, what room number?" Never seen this person before that, i could have been anybody, anybody trying to rob me or kill me for what i know. The most annoying thing of it all is that i called the receptionist out on it and instead of apologizing about it and realizing the stupidity behind his gesture , he got mad at me. he yelled at me :" What the hell! I don't think you would lie! ", got extremely defensive and arguing. If you come to Allentown you would surely believe that there is more going on than just a lying around: Everyone smoke in the motel, lots of drugs usage in the premises itself, pimp sitting outside all night long.... And the sign on the entrance obviously says " We are not responsible for lost propriety

Great and comfortable room. Everything was clean and in order when we got there no bugs anywhere that nothing we've got a no smoke room and I did not smell any smoke for the whole night

Woken up at 5 in the morning by the Latino community apparently living in the room next to us. Breakfast was awful and cramped, room smelled of paint despite not being freshly painted.

Hotel was located next to the airport, but is not a family hotel, the rung and room smell like it was done 50 years ago and smoke. Bathroom very dirty and hotel doors broken no lights around the hotel very sketchy hotel not recommended.

My stay at this hotel was nice.staff was friendly room was clean. Breakfast was good.

It was good comfortable, it's always good to get away from the craziness in the family during the week. I enjoy my stay.

Very clean ! Nice updated room! Super friendly people working there. They let us sleep in a little over an hour extra for free!

Booked cheapest room for my guys and they were happy.

Great hotel for the price paid. Clean, quiet and friendly staff. Would visit again in the near future

It was very accommodating. I enjoyed my two night stay with my boyfriend. I.came.here bedore once.or twice I liked.it because im a smoker

30min drive from Blue mountain. Stayed here for one night. Staff was very nice. Stairs to 2nd floor are a bit eerie at night. Bring your own soap and towels (you'll thank me later.) It's nothing fancy, you get what you pay for but you can't beat $50/night if you're just looking for a place to crash. Lots of food choices in the area. I was satisfied.

Hotel was in great location to major highways..staff was informative. Room was adequate.

everything was fine except the bathroom sink drain stop wasn't working well( a little inconvenient). I reported it the morning I checked out to the hotel clerk

I was there on a business trip, location was perfect, even two restaurants on site. But I had unwanted guests - Bedbugs - I was there only for two nights and saw the bite marks (25 of them) after the second night. Lucky me, I didn't take the bugs with me, I stayed in three more motels, no problems.
