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. It was... More

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.

My initial reaction was that it was an awkward little place. You enter the "front" of the building which is really the "end" to check in, and at first glance it appears that you have to take your luggage down steps to get to an elevator. It turns out that if you drive down the side of the building to... More

I rarely write reviews and don't consider myself a picky person, but this hotel is horrible! I could overlook the fact that it desperately needs updating but there is no excuse for finding blood on the comforter. The hotel staff immediately replaced the comforter and gave me a small discount. Secondly, our room had an inside connecting door. There is... More

The staff was friendly, our extremely spacious room was immaculate, the bed was unbelievably comfortable, and the breakfast was decent. It snowed and rained last night and the parking lot could have been very icy. I was thrilled to see someone working on melting the snow first thing in the morning.
