Another business trip and if the choice were up to me I wouldn't stay at the Clarion Hotel in New Kensington, PA. I get the impression that it is a family run hotel and the front desk staff was not very professional. My room was on the upper floor (no elevator) and grouped with other rooms where there were "long... More

I have stayed here maybe three times prior and always thought it was pretty bad, but this time took it to a new level. We checked in and when to the room only to find it still dirty from the previous people. Went back to the desk, gave us another room, this on had wall paper falling off the wall... More

We only stay here because it is the only hotel that accepts a pet in the area where our relatives are. Baths outdated, no exterior door locks, rooms with refrigs are all occupied by contractors. Carpets lumpy/dangerous, halls reek of tobacco.

I was in the area on business and stayed here after having an issue with another motel. I did not have an opportunity to look at these reviews before checking in or it wouldn't have happened. After taxes, the AAA rate came to $85. Most other area properties are getting at least $70 per night, so I guess everyone charges... More

Stayed here for 1 night to race at Westmoreland BMX in Apollo PA. This was the closest hotel that I could find that took pets. This is a massively large hotel with multiple entrances. Even had a restaurant onsite. Grocery was nearby. The room with double beds was large. Was disappointed there was no refrigerator or microwave. Almost seems like... More

I am a road warrior, single female. Absolutely do not stay here. The condition of this hotel should be $30-40/night. Surprised it is not by the hour. It is horrendous. Inside rooms; however, the outside doors do not have keys to them, so anyone could get you. The customers are a mix. Breakfast is not included in this price. Rugs... More

We stayed at this hotel a year ago and were disappointed with the room and hotel due to cleanliness and disrepair of rugs in hallway, broken dressers in rooms, and filthy laundry area. We thought after a year they would have done some repairs after we stated our unhappiness with the manage. Guess what, rugs still need replacement, we had... More

I am from this area, and needed to stay in town for 3 nights to attend a funeral. Wish I had known about the Springhill Suites at Pittsburgh Mills, would have never stayed here! The place is a dump-hasn't been remodeled for many years and is really bad. All the a hallways smell like smoke and the front desk clerk... More

I grew up in this area, (I am 62) and I don't know how they continue to stay in business, I suppose because there is no competition other than the Marriott at the Pittsburgh Mills. Proprietor needs to start spending some money and update this place or they will not last....spent 2 nites and I'm quite sure this hotel has... More

We reserved 3 ground floor rooms and reserved them well in advance because two members of the party could not walk up stairs due knee defects and surgery. They gave away all the rooms and put us on the second floor. They had no elevator and were unsympathetic. Ice machines were always empty. They would send us to the bar... More
