“First time here.”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

This was a good surprise stop on our way to Virginia Beach area. This hotel has an outdoors theme which is very neat to see being from Michigan. The antler lamps and animal mounts in the lobby were really a good touch to the cabin feel. this hotel is just off the highway enough to be able to sleep in peace. The free breakfast and the polite staff made it a real joy to stay the night.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice, However no rooms have a view of mountains or anything just road out front...

I was so pleasantly surprised when we stepped into this hotel. It seemed brand new. The front desk staff was very pleasant and prompt. It had charming lobby decor unlike any HIE I've ever seen - kind of a log cabin feel. This place was located conveniently off of the PA Turnpike, but you could neither see nor hear the highway from the hotel.

The hotel was clean and quiet. The breakfast was the standard HIE breakfast with pancakes, oatmeal, eggs, biscuits & gravy, fruit, coffee, yogurt, etc.

There are not a lot of restaurants in the area. Brady's is very good and the prices aren't bad. I heard Out of the Fire was very good, too, but it's pricey and you need reservations.

I often stay at Holiday Inn Express because I love the clean modern decor, good breakfast and late night meals at the bar if needed. This was a clean and friendly hotel but was decorated with taxidermic animals and very rustic decor. I arrived exhausted but they did not have a bar with snack foods so I had to go out.
The bed was comfy, there was a good fridge and TV and ice machine. The bathroom was very clean. I was just very surprised that this was a holiday inn Express as it was so different in ambience from the others I'd stayed in. The small of the swimming pool was rather intense in the hotel main areas.

Room Tip: very noisy vacuum banging into walls at about 8.30 am. Arrive having eaten... there is not much aro...

Thank you for choosing our hotel and letting us know how your stay was. We are glad that the room was comfortable, but sorry to hear that you were disappointed that we did not have a bar inside of our hotel. We do have a list of bars and restaurants that are at the front desk that are only within a mile away to accommodate our guests, so we hope this might help for any future travels to our location.

I nog a big Dan of Holiday Inns, but we were desperate while traveling through PA. This was a great hotel: new, fashionable, local color for decor, clean and easy to get to. Found a great restaurant just down the road, Out of Fire Cafe. Great combo. Locally smoked salmon.

Room Tip: Rooms facing road are not that noisy, but you May want to pick other side if you are a light sleeper...

Needed a place to stay to break up a long road trip and selected this property based solely on location. Right off the PA turnpike- the location was perfect (don't worry- the highway seems miles away and you can't tell it's even nearby from the hotel). I'm sure many people stay here when visiting Fallingwater (about 1/2 hour away) Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and nice pool/hot tub and decent breakfast buffet. Rates were reasonable and nice touches made the stay a pleasant surprise. I an impressed with what HI Express has done. Great job.

Pleasantly surprised with clean and spacious suite, bathroom recently updated, bed very comfortable. Pool and jacuzzi were great, lobby was charming, and breakfast was better than most. Can't wait to stay there again.

It was the last night of our vacation so I spent a few extra dollars for a suite. I was really pleasantly surprised. The room was really spacious, with comfortable furnishings, a mini-kitchen, a good bath, and -- most important -- a comfortable bed. A Ritz Carlton it's not...although, in Donegal...

Room Tip: Get a suite.
