I was on a sales trip through Western, PA and am SO GLAD I found this hotel! I stay at HI Express hotels all the time and am usually happy, but this one BY FAR was the cleanest one I've ever seen. They're never 'dirty' or anything, but I could've sworn this hotel was brand new, even though I found out it was six years old. The front desk attendant was so nice, and I also met the manager, Sunny Singh. They even gave me a welcome letter with my room key! I've NEVER received a welcome letter before. Also, when I checked out, there was another 'thank you' letter from the GM included along with the bill. Not that I wait all the time for letters, but they definitely do those little 'extra' things to show that they care about their guests. I was also happy that I had TWO bottles of FREE water waiting for me in my room, the room and bathroom were VERY clean, and the coffee was hot and fresh 24 hours daily. Everything was great about this hotel - I will definitely stay here again. Oh, and my room was $134/night. I live in Ohio, so to me, that seemed like a fair price, but I don't know how much hotels normally cost in Western PA.
The only negative I have is that, being in the middle of nowhere, food delivery options are limited. The ad for Fox's Pizza Den in the guest directory said they're open until 10pm, but when I called, the VM said they close at 7pm on Mondays. So if you want food delivered, make sure you call early. But there's a Bob Evans right around the corner, so I just got takeout from there, which was probably much better than Fox's Pizza Den, anyway.
