I have often come to the Inn on the Mexican War Streets as a couple, but sadly returned to bury my partner. Found solace and comfort in the warmth of the Inn. And found many other travelers out on their own as well, many of them women happy for the security of the setting. Tops for Business or Romance. 5... More

A great alternative to the hotel scene. Very friendly, beautiful inn across from a park where you can go kayaking in a small lake. If you stay for 2 nights, the price goes down significantly. Breakfast is "do it yourself", but with a great selection (including a waffle iron) and variety of settings where you can eat. We chose the... More

The Inn on Mexican War Streets is a very interesting little b&b. The Inn keepers are very nice. The hotel itself is a little worn around the edges, showers are a little dingy, fixtures are older, but it is an older hotel so I guess that is to be expected. There are tons of little kitchy elements in each room... More

We were very impressed with the beautiful room, garden and house. Karl was an excellent host. The only let down was the fact that the breakfast on day 2 was identical to day 1 and appeared to be whatever was left over ( down to the knife still being embedded in the loaf of bread). This is a minor complaint... More

Wonderful location, incredible room.I stayed in Mr Boggs' room with view on the park! beautiful furniture, wood and velvet everywhere, old fashioned style. The owner, Karl is very kind and nice ?. What more to live not to descrbe. Take a car with you since Pittsburgh is very hard to visit on foot.

If I could give the Inn 2 ratings for 2 personalities of mine, it would be a 4 star and a 2 star assessment. First the 4 star, or Beauty rating. The Inn on the Mexican War Streets is a phenomenal place. A historic converted mansion, it has very unique rooms, beautiful garden, spiral staircase, elegant reading room, everything you'd... More

This lovely Inn is victorian in nature, with a gorgeous winding staircase to the second floor. The rooms are nicely decorated and a good size. We recomment it to all visiting friends and relatives. The proprietors are quite anxious to please. It is located across the Allegheny River, from downtown Pittsburgh, less than one mile from the Pirates balllpark and... More

My husband and I were in Pittsburgh for the NHL Winter Classic on New Year's Day. We spent three nights here and loved it. We had the Mr. Boggs room which faces the street and over looks the park across the street (in the picture, the 3 windows on the second floor are Mr. Boggs room). The room was spacious,... More

Breakfast was cold food on a buffet. Coffee difficult to find. Very unappetizing breakfast. I travel to B&B's just to stay at them, and I expect a good meal in the morning. Extraordinarily disappointing. Rooms were fantastic. Lots of character. Very clean. We had our choice of all of them and took the smallest because the decor was so fantastic.... More

This is a lovely Inn with beautfiul rooms. The innkeepers know the area well and are helpful with suggestions. The drawbacks are that we saw the owners only twice during our stay, there was no restaurant despite the advertising, and the rooms off the main upstairs foyer are quite noisy when other guests are talking or moving luggage since the...
