I stayed here last weekend with my mother and infant son. The staff was very friendly when we checked in, and very accommodating when asked to provide a crib and some basic kitchen supplies in our suite. The room was very large and clean with a great view of Dorney Park, which was not nearly as loud as I thought...

Great stay, nice staff. Stayed here with my boyfriend the night before our Dorney Park Visit. They were very accommodating, letting us check in very late at 10pm. Room was clean and quite, nice quick light breakfast in the morning including pancakes, eggs, muffins, toast, cinnamon rolls, toast etc. Overall excellent stay after long drive there from Jersey.
