What a pit. The staff is good but that is where it ends. I was looking for a cheap place to stay and found it. I booked a non-smoking room and got a smoking room, with the burn marks on the carpet and the bed spread. The bathroom is a joke. I am just under 6 foot and had to... More

Everything seemed very clean, bed was comfortable. A flat screen TV was mounted on the wall, about a 40" model with numerous channels. There was a large shelf to the right of the sink area which was very convenient for setting things down and keeping them out of the way. It's a one floor facility with no central hallway. I... More

The management was very friendly. They first gave us a room that wasn't made up! OOPS! But, that's ok, they quickly gave us the next room over. It's an Econolodge, not Hampton. It was very cheap, and there were some reasons why. Everything was clean, but not totally updated. Teensy bit musty. Cheap paint job (very noticeable in the bathroom,... More

I recall these types of motel rooms as being "the good rooms" from road trips with my family as a child. So, yes, it is a little dated but our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a king sized bed with a couch and coffee table, so lots of room. The breakfast was what you'd expect for a... More

during our trip to Pittsburgh we had a very hard time finding a hotel due to everything being booked. we ended up finding the econo lodge. The room was very clean. a little dated but clean. The beds were comfortable and it is the most quiet place I have ever stayed. A very good hotel for well under 100 a... More

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
