“Oh my aching back!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2011

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!

Nice small hotel, near Reading Airport. Travel with friends and children for sporting event. The rooms were nice, comfy bed, CLEAN BATHROOMS! Did my usual mattress check when I arrived, everything looked good. Free Parking! Small fridge and microwave that we did not have any extra charge. Hyatt, Sheraton, Hilton charge for fridges and parking. Hotel staff was nice, had easy to follow directions to our event. Free breakfast daily was fine, coffee, tea, hot choc, milk juice..fruit, bagels, eggs, serve yourself, but it was nice to grab a coffe/tea and head out the door. Maid was good, extra towels were available as requested. Would stay there again for sporting event.

Me and my husband stayed here for our religious convention that is held in reading every year, and they have always accomdated us so nicely! this hotel has been very reliable on being clean, helpful, and a nice breakfast :) it suits us perfectly while we are in town for only three days, two nights. Not fancy but for being an "express" you will be pleasantly surprised! will always try to book this one first!

Lets start by saying this was a great hotel that everyone should stay at. It is in a quiet part of town and not in the bad part of Reading. I got greeted with a smile, which was needed after a long day of traveling. I got a free bottle of water and a gift bag of snacks. Monday-Wednesday they had a manager's reception where each person gets two free drinks (wine/beer) and snacks. What a great treat.
The rooms were clean and I didn't have any noise problems with other guests. The breakfast was delicious and the area was kept clean. I wish I didn't have to leave because it was such a great hotel with amazing amenities.

We have stayed here for many years and always found the staff and manager very nice and helpful. However, we stayed here recently and found out it now has a new manager and staff. The staff were unfriendly and gave me conflicking stories about things. As there are many newer hotels in the Reading area, we will stay someplace else next time.
