"Super 8 in Allentown -- economy and service"

The hotel has been recently renovated. Try to get a room in the new section, as we did. It's a plain, simple hotel as to be expected in a lower-priced chain (very low rates in fact, two days for what one would usually expect to pay for one), but quite comfortable.
We went there to escape the hurricane and arrived exhausted, late at night. We overslept and missed the continental breakfast -- and the housekeeping staff was kind enough to bring us muffins and cereal, and not even accept a tip!
On the other hand, WiFi service didn't seem to function well. When I called the front desk, they claimed it was "up and running," but that "someone in the hotel was blocking" me. That seemed unlikely since I did not know anyone in the hotel nor was my computer linked to any other computer user.
