“Simple - Nice - Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2009

We just needed an inexpensive no-frills place for the night. This filled our objectives. The staff was very nice and the room was clean and had a fridge and micro that we didn;t need, but nice amenity to have if you need it. Net door is a Kinds Family restaurant open 24 hours if you want food. Saw a swimming pool but apparent;y not open as the cover was still on from the winter. We enjoyed the exprience and would return Again,

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2009

I was actually shocked when I walked in the room - nice bed, loveseat, updated heating/AC unit, remodeled bathroom, good lighting. What's the problem? Then I hooked up my computer and connected easily to the Internet and got 6700kbps down and 1800kbps up - amazing! The walls aren't the most beautiful color and there aren't 800 thread count sheets on the bed, but this place is a lot better than many of the more "standard grade" hotels I've stayed in. Definitely recommended, especially for the price!

There was a foul stench in the room. I called the front desk to report the water in my room was brown and they didn't seem to care. I requested two doubles and they gave us a single. How do you fit four people in a single. When I left I found out they charged my credit card twice. Awful!

Quite clean, a fridge in the room, microwave too, and for only 40 bucks a night! There's a computer in the "continental breakfast" room with fast internet, that made me happy too. I was quite satisfied.

  • Liked — cheap

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2006

Being an auto club member, I received 10% off during booking. The motel is very conveniently located, just off I-79. The room has a good size with 2 double beds for a family of 4. My room was also equipped with microwave & fridge without extra charge. The complimentary breakfast was bland, with just cereals and pre-packed muffins. Milk and orange juice came in jugs. I booked this motel because it was the cheapest I could find on the internet with the 412-area code (i.e. Pittsburgh). Overall it was just an average stay. A Motel 6 nearby was actually a few bucks cheaper, but with basic amenities.

  • Liked — Reasonably priced and conveniently located near an I-79 exit
  • Disliked — Limited continental breakfast selections
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay here if you are concerned with budget
