I stay at the Melody every year when I make the 10 hour drive to Connellsville, PA. I am a genealogist and each year I try to make the trip back, although I did have to miss 2011 but I will be there in April of 2012. I know where I will stay. It is so unusual to come across a mom and pop owned place. The owners are so nice and will do anything to make your stay comfortable. One of their maids is Peach, I know where she got her name because she is a real peach! If it is the high life you are looking for, then this quaint motel is not for you. You will find a basic room covered with paneling, an old fashioned TV and bath fixtures out of the 1950's but, the rooms are always clean and that is our number one concern. Ed's diner is around the back of the motel and their food is great and cheap!! The waitress's are all so friendly and take good care of you. If you'd like an old fashioned place to stay with old fashioned hospitality, this might be the place for you! Last time I was there, our room was only $45 for the night, where can you get that??
I hate to read the bad reviews on this place, I wish they would have checked it out better on the internet because the pictures are exactly how it is. They don't pretend that it is a $200 a night motel at only $45 a night, what you see is what you get. I enjoy staying there partly for the nostalgia of the place. I look forward to seeing the old place in a few months!
