Reading isn't very big and there isn't much to choose from when it comes to hotels. A review on tripadvisor lead me here.
The PROS: It was clean, the room was neat and equiped with tv, wifi, microwave, and fridge. The bathroom was clean. Located next to the Reading airport in the 'better' part of Reading (the city's run down). Accommodated our request for 1st floor room. Breakfast we included in the price. The staff was helpful or not depending on who you talked to.
The CONS: No change at the front desk the night we stayed or the next day. Medicine dispenser next to the vending machine was "out of order" the two days we were there. Breakfast included eggs with some sort of plastic cheese, a rubber sausage and a hockey puck impersonating a biscuit. Stick with the bagels, toast or pancakes. (McDonald's could have done a better job. All of these things I could have overlooked if it wasn't for the bed. OH MY ACHING BACK!!! Trust me...sleep on the floor, you'll get a better night's sleep. This places wins the prize for the worst night sleep ever (and it didn't have anything to do with the yelling 2 y.o. in the next room at 11 pm). Really, why do we stay at hotels? To have somewhere to sleep!
