Pros: Cheap stay about a 10-15 minute walk from the Cathedral of Learning, very convenient to Forbes Ave. Free parking, Wi-fi. Panera Bread on the 1st floor. Also a short distance from Schenley Park and a quick drive to downtown. Free Wi-Fi. Cons: Not a good-looking hotel room. Had to put shoulder to door to open it up (a handicapped-accessible... More

The motel was in the perfect location for us which is why we chose it. The parking is free - as others have mentioned - so that's a plus. The quality was a bit less than I would have liked. The linens were clean. The caulk job in the bathroom was amateur. The mattress should probably have been retired a... More

The good things about this place are that it has free parking and it's in walking distance from U of Pittsburgh, everything else about it is bad! The balcony door does not close properly, I SAW A STAIN ON THE SHEET, and the channel guid had nothing to do with the actual channels which was pretty disappointing. The walls made... More

There is nothing particularly special about this hotel, except for its consistency. It is within walking distance of the University's Medical School and main university campus. It is clean, comfortable, and friendly. And, by requesting a quiet room, we always -- always! -- have had no problems with noisy neighbors. (This is obviously important to me). We have stayed there... More

We were able to check in super early, which was a huge plus in my book, the parking was free, the shuttle was free. Room was a little dated, looks like they are trying to remodel and just haven't done it all yet. The room was clean and beds were comfy. Balcony was nice, but it stunk. All in all... More

I use this hotel all the time! A great to stay near the hospitals and university. Staff is excellent and very accommodating. Free parking which is extremely rare in Oakland! Panera Bread Is connected to the hotel so you don't have to go far for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
