5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2010

We stayyed with our 2 young children and had a clean room with a decent size bathroom. The was too much furniture in the room causing it to be a little cramped, but it was excellent for the price. We went to the continental breakfast each morning and it was really good. Large variety. Rooms were clean and it was not noisy at night which provided a good nights sleep. we would deinately recommend!

We stayed one night and mentioned we were going to Mohegan Sun and got a good rate. They had a free shuttle service to the casino. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, with refrigerator and microwave and coffee pot. Hot breakfast. Close to many restaurants.

We stayed in this hotel on our way to and from Boston. The selection process was no more than where we were when we got too tired to drive and what hotel coupons we had from the Pennsylvania Welcome Center. What a nice surprise! Although it was not located directly along the Interstate, it wasn't too far and was perched up on a hill overlooking the city. Both nights we were given front facing rooms with the "city lights" view. The snow made it especially pretty. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very nice for a HI Express. We always travel with snacks so the in-room fridge and microwave were great to have. Free internet, exercise room and hot breakfast made this $69/night (with coupon) deal so great we made sure to stop there on our way back home. For hotels in this class, this one is the tops!

We followed the directions on the hotels own website and couldn't find it! Why wouldn't they take the time to refine their directions so more customers wouldn't quit in frustration? Odd
The hotel is freshly renovated, and the public areas are as you would expect in a hotel of this class, but the rooms are Odd. They are absolutely packed with new furniture and the room feels claustrophic as a result. The pieces are too large for the space. And the sizeable new desk, which is about a foot from the bed, doesn't even have a power strip for laptops, phones etc. Odd. I got the feeling the owners bought way too much furniture at auction and dumped it into their rooms with no thought of basic design.
The place is ok if all you need is a bed and a shower--just don't expect to feel relaxed. Next time through I'll look elsewhere.

Although the staff sound like they try hard, the facility, itself is hard to find, rooms are cramped, wireless internet is intermittent and the accomodations are noisy.

Traffic and noise in and out of the room next door went on until the wee hours of the morning.

At check out, the front desk personnel could only say they "had complaints" on that specific room. Whatever happended to dialling 911 for that kind of activity or at least sending someone up to investigate and may be kick them out? Hmmmm?

Not a lodging facility our business will be using in the future.

Overall, this hotel was great. I've stayed at Holiday Inn's before so I was a little leary but this one exceeded all of my expectations! Very friendly front desk staff, nice lobby, above average rooms! The room was a little cramped (had a king size bed) but it was clean and even had a microwave and fridge. The breakfast was decent! Would definitely stay here again.

We've stayed here before and things are still top-notch.

Nice beds, quality rooms, TVs and breakfast. Use Priceline and get a deal. Nice place to spend a night and get a decent meal in the morning.
