We were visiting Falling Water and driving from NY, so didn't want to add to the drive by staying at one of the larger old world hotels in this area. We chose Yough Plaza because it's five minutes from Falling Water. The town of Ohiopyle is kind of cute — on the river with a lot of kayaking rental places and little stores (most of which close at the end of October and reopen in spring). Yough Plaza is on a side street and is nothing to speak of. The staff was friendly enough, the room was clean, but it's pretty bare bones. No hair dryer, drinking glasses or bath amenities and at $95/night in this rural location, I would have expected a little more. The beds were also pretty uncomfortable and the pillows were hard and lumpy. There's a little cafe across the street, but aside from the spectacular Falling Water (worth the visit, no matter where you stay!), if you're in this area, be sure to dine at Chez Gerard about 20 minutes away. It's fabulous. Charming, welcoming and an incredible bargain with a prix fixe dinner for $50. Worth twice the price — which can make up for spending $95 at Yough Plaza!
