The staff is personable, and helpful. The hotel needs some updating, but it's not bad. My bed was a little softer than I would like, but hey, it not my bed. The room was clean and everything worked as it should, except the A/C unit. Took me a few times to get it to reset to get the heat to... More

I kind of understand why this hotel is rated an unassuming 5 out of 8 in Johnstown. I have stayed here on a few occasions, but this time was subpar. Now, let's get this straight: a HIE is not a five-star property and I am not expecting five-star service. Just the same, take a look at the following list of... More

My recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express Johnstown was very pleasant. Here are some details of my stay at this hotel. Arriving and checking in at this hotel was very quick and easy, and there were popcorn and cookies for the arriving guests. Before long, we were in our room. The room itself was very neat and tidy, and... More

The location is really nice because it's close to all the restaurants and the mall. Really many attractions to see as far as going on a vacation, but it does have everything else you need close. The rooms were clean and sufficient.

I am at the Holiday Inn Express once a week for our local Regional Business Networking Group (RBN). The staff always has our conference room set up and ready for us every morning. As well as a delicious breakfast of varying foods.

The hotel was ok. The ac was a 1983 model that you had to kick every so often to keep it running. The water in the shower all the way hot was luke warm. The plus was the hotel was next to beer place and bar. The hotel offered a shuttle. But was always booked. The staff was rude and... More

The friendly staff really is the stand out of this hotel. The girl that checked us in (Kayleigh I believe?) was so personable and friendly...kind of refreshing. The lobby and breakfast area was very nice and the breakfast itself was standard HIExpress quality. The hotel itself definitely does need some updating, but I really had no major complaints.

This motel is very good. Nice clean friendly staff. Lots of sores for everything you need. I would definitely recommend this motel if you are visiting the area. Close to Johnstown Center and windber just down the road.
