This is a great place to stay in the area. The room I had was very clean and the staff was always very friendly. Free breakfast and free internet service are always a plus. If you do not want to go out for dinner they do serve a "light" dinner at about 5:30 p.m. which is very nice - not much but a little something. All - in all a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Easy access to Interstate 81 and State Hwy 61.

With the sunset making driving impossible we just stopped at the nearest exit and were very pleased with this Holiday Inn Express. The ladies at the front desk were so nice, the room was clean with very comfortable beds. I travel with my own soft pillow but didn't need it since there were firm and soft pillows that were correctly marked on the pillowcases. Cracker Barrell is the only nearby restaurant so bring your own cocktails, as I always do just in case. Breakfast was included and it was a full breakfast and very good.

Room Tip: The third floor was very quiet.

I'm happy you found us and enjoyed your stay. Our Express slogan is "Stay Smart" and smart is what I would call a woman who travels with her own cocktails! Hope you stop by again.

this motel was clean and well maintained. i travel to this area 4 or more times a year and i found this motel to be the best place to stay. the hallways and my room smelled fresh, there was no odor in the linens and the bathroom was clean. the hotel was quiet and comfortable. the fitness room had equipment in working condition. unfortunately the Jacuzzi is shut down because of ada restrictions but no jacuzzi is better than an open filthy one like i have seen in some hotels. i had to do some work in the room and the accommodations were perfect, a couch and coffee table. there is a cracker barrel restaurant next to the hotel and there are restaurants in frackville such as the dutch kitchen and a few Italian restaurants as well (trust me Italian restaurants are pretty good in the region). this may cost a little more but clean and safe are worth the price. there is no pool but what good is a frigid and dirty pool anyway. i will come back here.

We love feedback from our guests especially the positive! The only way for us to improve is to hear it from the guests. Our housekeepers take pride in their work and it is really nice that you took the time to write a review.
As for the jacuzzi, unfortuantely, we do not have the space to add the safety lift required for ADA compliance so we did shut it down. We are waiting on estimates for removal and trying to find a good use for that space.Hopefully on your next visit we will have an area you can enjoy.

After having a nightmare of an experience at another chain hotel we tried this hotel and what a great experience we had. Very clean rooms. Polite staff. Nice that free breakfast included. Microwave and fridge in all rooms. Very quiet.

After reading reviews we decided to try the Holiday Inn Express Frackville. We have stayed at quite a few hotels in the area and this was by far the best. Clean comfortable room - we had the king suite and like previous reviewer stated ,the bed was extremely comfortable. Had dinner at Cracker Barrel which was within easy walking distance. Breakfast was really good.
Joann at front desk was extremely helpful. We will definitely make this our hotel of choice when visiting upstate PA in the future. Hotel is smoke and pet-free.

The Front desk staff have been here between 4 to 9 years. They know their job and the area so you can be comfortable asking them for anything you may need. Thanks for staying with us. We look forward to having you as a guest in the future.

Okay, probably the nicest you'll find in the area. Clean rooms, and comfortable bedding. Breakfast area was pretty good. Seems they have soup or something in the evening. If you use AAA be sure to have your card with you, they check it (most places don't). Plenty of parkinig, Cracker Barrel in the next lot, short walk. Bright spot in a depressing area. Just off Interstate 81, and Route 61.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we do soup or appetizers at night Monday-Thursday.

It might help if I explain the reason for our policy to check AAA/AARP or any discounts. We only have 65 rooms and like all hotels only a percentage is loaded at discounted rates. It would not be fair to you to pay for a AAA membership and then find the discounted rooms are gone because we gave them to just anyone that claimed they had AAA. In a hotel with 300 rooms it doesn't make a difference because you have so many rooms but in a small hotel that frequently sells out I prefer to keep the people happy who pay to belong, as I do, to AAA/AARP and other beneficial discounted programs.

Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you again.

I often visit this area in PA so I need a quick overnight stay. I chose this hotel at first because I know Holiday Inn is a reputable name and because Cracker Barrel is across the parking lot.
Good food and cute store. Very country.

The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly. They make homemade soup every night and have a nice selection for breakfast to grab on the way out, or sit and eat (help yourself)
It is included.

I am picky when it comes to vacationing and the resorts I stay at. I must say, this is no resort or vacation spot obviously, but I can say I feel more comfortable and satisfied here in an overnight facility than many resorts I have stayed at on tropical islands!

Simple fitness center- jacuzzi no longer in operation.

For the purpose I seek, this is a great choice.
