“The best find in the most unlikely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2008

Oh my goodness. We had to drive from Niagara area to DC - on the way we drove past pittsburgh before stopping, but on the way back, we wanted something "halfway plus an hour" - that put us exactly in Meadville. I had originally looked at Cranberry, and was underwhelmed by what I saw - decent choices for $100 it looked like.

But then I saw the reviews on here and called HIE meadville, got the AAA rate of $80 something (can't remember) - and had a wonderful experience from the first telephone contact.

The hotel itself is pleasantly nice - lobby, breakfast area - all kinds of little extras/free foods and drinks all day. The phenomenal customer service continued on arrival.

The downsides of the room - as has been mentioned, it's a bit older but looks to be renovated in the important aspects. So carpet, wallpaper in bathroom, little nooks and crannies were not a treat on the eyes.

So that's the bad - I can't even list all the good.

- the towels - soft, nice, an "oops" towel by the sink for spills
- the toiletries - nice shampoo/conditioner and bath and body works lotion - plus the extras you don't seem to get anymore like shoe shine wipe, etc
- the pillowcases - labeled as to whether pillow is soft or firm
- the coffee maker - FINALLY - hot chocolate for those of us who don't drink coffee or tea!!!!
- the artwork in the rooms and hallways, the bed, the little chair even though the room is small - all fantastic

They really and truly went the extra mile to ensure provision of the things that matter. We got there after a long, difficult weekend (death in family), I'm pregnant and wasn't in great shape (meaning tired, lightheaded, etc) - and it was our anniversary and we had forgotten in the grief of the weekend.

we asked them to order a snowstorm so we'd be stuck there the next night! (They offered to remove our tires instead, so as not to have to deal with snow.)

We ate at the Italian restaurant, got a 10% coupon from the hotel without even asking, and were just amazed, it seems this town is a deep well of courtesy and service. I just kept looking around and wondering how they are able to offer so much, so generously.

I can't say enough - we are VERY critical, we do a lot of research, and we have stayed in a lot of hotels. This is one place I will recommend widely, we will hope to stay at again, and it's a place I hope continues to do very well - they deserve it.

  • Liked — Quieter than our street but right off highway, phenomenal service, great amenities
  • Disliked — older carpet, drain in tub, older heating system

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2007

A very nice hotel, the staff and service sets it apart from the usual "if you wanted a 5 star hotel you should have stayed in one" attitude I often encounter in HIE properties. The entire hotel is clean (parking lot, lobby, halls and rooms) and everyone was helpful and friendly. There was a manager's "reception" Monday thru Thursday in the lobby featuring a different theme every day.

It is also conveniently located just off the highway, and close to downtown Meadville. It shares a parking lot with an Italian restuarant and a Perkins, with an Applebee's just across the street. It has all the usual business services plus a great wireless internet connection.

I stayed in a single room that featured a nice bed, clean, almost like new beddings, and a decent sized bathroom. The room, typical for a single at an HIE (meaning on the small side), also had the usual iron/coffee maker/hairdryer and a generous sized bathroom. Due to a scheduling conflict the hotel had to put me in a suite for the price of a single on my last night... it was awesome, with plenty of room, it also had the usual suite accessories of a mini fridge, microwave, bar area.

The hotel also offers a complimentary breakfast, it is standard continental breakfast fare, plus cereal and a few hot entrees. It was good but not spectacular, although its better than nothing and probably beats a breakfast sandwich from a drive thru place.

This is, by far, the best hotel in Meadville! The beds are new, the staff is friendly, but most importantly it has WiFi access. The breakfast in the morning is also very good. If you have to stay in the Meadville area, stay here!!!!!!

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express several times while visiting family in the area. Good customer service, very nice staff, and good breakfast buffet. My one negative comment is the size of the rooms, quite a bit smaller then your normal hotel rooms. If you can spend more, the family and Jacuzzi suites provide you with a great alterative and a lot more space. Compared to other hotels, the nightly rate is little pricy; $89 per night for a regular room still seems a little high especially for this area.

  • Liked — Very comfortable beds and breakfast buffet.
  • Disliked — Size of rooms and overall nightly rate.

I was very happy with this one night stay. The hotel has warm, friendly staff. They were quite helpful. Everything I saw was thoroughly clean. There is fruit and coffee available in the lobby.
The whole ambiance of the hotel is "cozy." The best part was the bed. It was so incredibly comfortable that we nearly stayed another night just to be in it! I feel asleep the instant my head hit the pillow.
Unfortunately, though it has been kept nicely, the building is a bit older and has some issues. The thickness of the floors and walls are out of the control of the management. You can hear your neighbors stomping around their rooms and buzzing from hairdryers and sweepers. But the bed was so comfortable I slept through most of it anyway. I actually asked what the brand the bed is so that I can buy one!

This was a terrific hotel! Very clean, super tidy, and the bed was very comfortable. Internet access was very convenient. Linens, both sheets and bath towels, looked and smelled fresh (not dusty like in some places). Breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Meadville, PA!

I was on business trip, and chose the hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. I was not disappointed with the choice! :)
The hotel is clean and cosy, staff friendly and polite, the complimentary breakfast was excellent!
What I especially liked were the christmas decorations in the lobby and hallways. I'd stay there and just sipped coffy in the lobby, if i had more time!
