While parked and inside the facility, my car was TOWED AWAY! When I talked with the manager on duty, Amber Yuhaschek, she rudely assured me that I was wrong and she would do nothing for me. Do not leave your car in their parking lot as they may tow you away for no reason at all!

Very affordable and great room conveniently located in the city. The room had a balcony with a fun view. Large room with a couch. Very clean. Stayed the night and went to a Penguins game. Friendly hotel staff brought us to the game via shuttle. I also used the gym which was clean and had nice equipment!

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel two years ago and well, wasn't pleasant.. room was drab and needed a LOT of updating. But due to the the location to McGee's Women's Hospital and recent reviews, we decided to stay again, and glad we did. The lobby has been updated and each floor now is brighter, and very warm...

This is a great hotel in a great location! All of the staff were very pleasant and helpful, and it was very easy to get to any location in Pittsburgh in an easy and timely manner. This hotel was a tremendous value for the price.

My kids have dubbed this one as "the best hotel ever"! When we checked in just a couple of days after Christmas, my kids were allowed to pick presents from under the tree. It was not an extravagant gift, some small things to occupy them but you would have thought they had been given something huge! The ladies at the... More

This is a great economical hotel, with free parking, wifi, newspapers and coffee. This is the perfect hotel for families, students who are checking out the University or if you just arrived in town to check out the Stealers game. The hotel is close to downtown Pittsburgh, steps away from the University and a short distance to Mount Washington which... More

This hotel "motel" was one of the dirtiest places I have ever stayed. My door was left open by housekeeping staff. We were staying there while my husband was at UPMC. The staff were rude.

I really just expected an average experience for the one night I stayed here but, as it is many times when you travel, it's the kindness and service of the staff that really make the difference.
