This hotel is very convenient to shopping (South Hills Village Mall and Village Square). There are several decent restaurants within walking distance. The pool was adequate and has a pool bar. Parking is abundant and ice machines are located on every floor. We stayed in a room overlooking the road and there was much traffic at night. My son enjoyed... More

The hotel was easy to find and has plenty of parking. Things seem pretty up to date and fairly clean from the outside although someone's dog poop was just hanging out in the parking lot (I obviously blame the dog owner here). The front desk person was cordial and got me checked in pretty quickly. I headed up to my... More

The $$$ you pay for this is unfortunately not reflective of the quality of rooms and service you receive. Bathroom tubs were dirty Bathroom shower liner was filthy and stained badly Toilets were not cleaned properly Bed linens-when we went to bed, we started feeling a stinging kind of biting all over. Woke up this morning and had marks. We... More

Average hotel. Stayed here to attend a Pittsburg pirates baseball game. Location was excellent. Right across the street and plenty to eat within walking distance. The rooms were average. Could be more cleaner but nothing terrible. No refrigerator in the room which I found odd but not a big deal. Everyone was friendly.

It is very convenient to the south hills. It is clean and the staff excellent. It is a bit old and barebones though clean and well cared for. It is as I expected. Not luxury but not down and dirty. Good price performance.

This was my first time staying at a crowne hotel, but after staying here I will be trying this brand of hotels more often. The rooms were clean and spacious. The only bad this about the hotel that I would have to say is the Internet which was miserably slow, and pets (if anybody is allergic to them request a... More

Typical hotel that was at the top of its game in the 70's but needs some tlc. Walls in rooms desperately need painted. Clean but age still shows. Location cant be beat. Staff very helpful, outside tiki bar is very odd.

Staffs were friendly and accommodating. Room was really great. Clean and huge. At least the one I had during my stay. Slept well at night. A branch of the famous Primanti Bros is just nearby.

Arrived July1st in the early afternoon. Room was ready and nicely cleaned.Staff at front desk very welcoming. Our room was cleaned each day as we needed and overall I could not ask for any better. Great location to walk across the street to the mall. I have only had good experiences here.
