On top of the Vulcan Hill - where I-81 crosses PA54 - is a new hotel chain called - Main Stay Suites. They have hotel rooms and full suites available by the night or for extended stays. It is about 9 miles from downtown Tamaqua. It has free parking - free Internet - and free breakfast. Some evening they have a supper buffet. We did not stay there on this trip home - but Manager Janine Murray gave us the VIP tour. We were impressed with the facility - but best of all is the closeness to downtown.
There is no swimming pool - but the Tuscarora and Locust Lake State Parks are just at the foot of the mountain. They both offer swimming.
Another two exits north on I-81 is the Residence Inn. We have stayed there in the past - we even set up a Christmas trees on Christmas Eve. Lulu makes a big fuss over holidays. It is a little more expensive - but does have the swimming pool.
You can call them directly at 570-773-5252 - ask for Janine Murray. Just across the road is the famous "Patch" town - The Vulcan. My mother was born and raised there.
