“Nice place, nice location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This hotel is nice, both clean and comfortable. The staff was wonderful. I only gave it an average rating on value as I think the rates are a bit on the steep side. The location is good in that it is close to the outlet stores and the interstate, yet it sits back from the road so there is not traffic noise. The breakfast buffet is standard, but hot and plentiful. I was pleasantly surprised; the biscuits and gravy were really good!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

this hotel was more then we expected. super friendly staff and clean. we booked the Jacuzzi Suite and it was large and was much more than we were expecting. the cleaning ladies we also really nice giving us extra of things they noticed we used. frontdesk staff was very helpful in recommending places to eat etc they also extended our check-out to 2pm free of charge incase we over slept or wanted to do more shopping...2 min drive to the outlets. I will say there is nothing else to do while here but go to the outlet mall so if you are looking for activities to do after you shop there is not much in this city, i would recommend staying in Erie and driving up to Grove for the day (roughly 45-1hr drive). Grove does offer deals but not that many. I found more in Erie. Worth the drive to check out especially coming from Ontario with 13% tax and already inflated pricing. will 100% be returning before xmas to do much more shopping.

Room Tip: top floor. we were on 2nd floor and we could hear the people above walking around at 4am. NOT FUN!

Conveniently located minutes from premium outlet mall, average cost. Super comfortable clean room, big thanks to house keeping staff for maintaining the rooms. Hotel is located a fair distance from the main road thus expect quite night sleep, ample parking. Did not enjoy Free breakfast not enough selection eggs are not fresh but reconstituted. Had to clean my own table as no one available and staff too busy having personal . Did not use hotel amenities cannot comment

This was a pleasant stay. Laundry facilities at a reasonable cost (cheaper on the second floor). We received money off vouchers for the outlet village and also 10% off at the local restaurant. A good place to stay as half way between Toronto and Washington DC. The pool was clean and lifeguarded with a jacuzzi.

Plenty of space and back from the main road so it was quiet.

I made a reservation for 4 nights then needed to change one of the dates, still staying 4 nights. Holiday Inn charged me for an extra night just to make the change..$140.00. This is BAD BUSINESS. I am stuck or I would change hotels.

This hotel was very nice, very clean. 24 hour popcorn, coffee and water with lemon. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was usual Holiday Inn fare, but such a variety you can always find something you like. The near outlet shopping was busy, but also clean. The only problem I can come up with was the price for a Thursday overnight stay. It was a bit pricey. We were going to Pittsburgh (about an hour away) to see a Pirates game.....and granted, it was cheaper than any downtown Pittsburgh hotel, but still a little high in my opinion. Besides the outlet shopping, I'm not sure what else there is to do in the area.

On a whole, the room and hotel met my expectations for the price. I stayed here to visit a child who is at Westminster College. I would stay here again. The front desk staff were very helpful and courteous. The breakfast was good and the area clean. My room was clean. This is a nice hotel for the area and price. Rooms had microwave and frig. For a Holiday Inn Express, I think it is a nice place to stay. It is not going to be the Ritz or a 5 star hotel. Would recommend to Westminster families.
