Stayed here during my vacation in Pittsburgh. It was very easy to find as soon as I got off I-79 (even though I didn't follow the directions Google Maps gave me). I was warmly greeted by the owner when I arrived and was promptly processed even though it was apparent he was training a new employee. When I got to... More

Stayed here 2 nights with a friend from college while visiting Pittsburg to see a couple pirates games. Place was about what we expected for what you pay. Old, smelly, and showed wear. The room right next to the lobby we assumed was storage bc there were bugs crawling all over the window. Our room however was ok. No major... More

Badly needs updating, smells bad, sketchy area- spend more money for a better room- you'll sleep better! Wish I hadn't listened to the other reviewers. Easy access to the highway, clean & a free breakfast (my teenage son passed on) ...that's as positive as I can get. Poor value.

All I was looking for was an "average" room for the night. Our room was not even close to that. The carpeting was totally shot. The caulk around the sink and shower was broken with pieces missing. The free WiFi was so slow that it was practically useless. It just appeared to me that even small upgrades would make a... More

Stayed here when all flights out were cancelled and every hotel I called was packed. Although the manager was very friendly I can't really recommend this place. It was much farther from the airport than I was told over the phone (20+ minutes - not 10, a $30 cab ride one way). The room smelled very strongly of paint as... More

This is clearly the Best Value in the Pittsburgh Area, the Staff & Management go out of their way to accommodate all of their good customers and are very helpful, respectful & polite. You will enjoy your stay at this Econo Lodge, and it is a perfect location for easy access to HWY 79 on your way to or from... More

I stayed here for 1 night on my way to the airport. The room was comfortable. The decor is a little dated/ Bed was clean and comfortable. Overall cleanliness was good however,the carpet under the TV stand dresser needed to be vacuumed. The manager who checked me in was very friendly and helpful with driving directions. It is not a...

Needing to attend a funeral in Pittsburgh on the same weekend as a Steelers' game, three college football games, parent weekend, AND a Bruce Springsteen concert was a logistical nightmare! There was not a hotel room to be found anywhere within a 1-hour drive of downtown Pittsburgh. I called 24 hotels without luck. Finally, we found one room at the... More

I stayed in the Econo Lodge for 1 night. It was really good experience to stay there. Mr. Bimal Kumar owner of the property helped me a lot. He showed a Great Hsopitality. The staff is very helpful. The place was in my Budget. This place is highly recommended for everyone.
