“convenient to PA turnpike exit and entrance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2009

This hotel sits very near the PA turnpike so is easy to get to. However, if you can't take noise, request a room opposite the turnpike. The rooms are quite spacious, however they could certainly be cleaner. We had "entertainment" while using the bath facilities. Small ants were collecting debris and taking them into a hole in the tile flooring grout! And the carpeting was soiled and "sticky" in an area near the bed. The included breakfast was fine and food plentiful. There is also free WiFi and pets can come along although we did not do this. This place is fine if you are not going to spend hours in the room. We were visiting with family so didn't spend much time there except to sleep. It's 11 miles from Pittsburgh (north), and there are lots of eating places close by too. Staff was friendly and the Priority Club "goodie" bags were better than most HIE we've stayed in. Beds are also very comfortable with lots of pillows.

If you have kids or apart of a hockey team, dont stay at this hotel
they don't like kids and will make your stay awful. Besides the fact the beds are like bricks.

I have been visiting my elderly parents in Oakmont twice a year for about six or seven years now, and I have tried most of the hotels across the river in Harmarville. The Holiday Inn Express is by far the best of the bunch. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is decent, and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a pool and free internet access in the breakfast room. On my most recent visit, I was in town for my father's funeral. Due to a softball tournament that was taking place nearby, there were no rooms available at the H.I. Express, so I ended up with a room at the Super 8 next door, which was truly awful. After a couple of bad nights there, I walked over to the Holiday Inn Express, and spoke with Matt, the manager. When I explained my situation to him, he went out of his way to free up a room for me and my sister at the H.I. Express. If you have to stay in Harmarville, I recommend the Holiday Inn Express.

Was looking for a place to sleep before visiting Pittsburgh the next day. Since this place had an indoor pool and was right off the Turnpike, it fit the bill.
The good: Was right at the Turnpike off-ramp, so you didn't have to go far before finding it. Even though there was only one person on duty with a crowd of people checking in, she was efficient and we were in our room a lot quicker than I expected. My little girl enjoyed splashing around the pool, and it was open until 11 so there was no rush to get dinner over with. Room was comfy.
The bad: The wireless Internet didn't always work. Getting into the parking lot from the main road took a little guesswork.
Conclusion: If I'm ever back in the area, I'll stay here.

Had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Harmarville, PA earlier this week. The hotel appears to have been recently renovated and the staff members were friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean, with the exception of some mold on the ceiling above the tub in the bathroom. The continental breakfast with delicious cinnamon rolls was an added value. The hotel also has a small exercise room and indoor pool. Of the four hotels in the area (Holiday Inn Express, Super 8, Days Inn, and Comfort Inn), this one appears to be the nicest and has a lot to offer. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

  • Liked — Nice hotel, excellent value
  • Disliked — The trucking terminal across the street might wake light sleepers up.

Very Typical Holiday Inn Express------recently renovated.

Our room was just the average 2 bedroom Holiday Inn Express.

TV had a large variety of channels and HBO available, 2 phones.

Bathroom provided usual amenties, towels and wash cloths were in great shape.

Easy access to Turnpike entrance, in fact I could look out the window and see the entrance, but this did not lead to any excess noise, in fact, this Hotel was very quite !! The hotel was very busy and I hardly heard any noise in the hallways.

On the downside, it was a little hard to find, because the sign was not high enough, but it is the last one in a row of other hotels.

A variety of restaurants and fast food with in walking distance. Two exits from The Pittsburgh Mills Shopping Complex with lots of shopping, eating, movies, bowling, etc........

If in this area again, I would definately stay here.

Stayed two nights in a huge suite- king bed with living area/two tv's with extended cable. Excellent customer service, clean room and public areas, fresh breakfast, very quiet. So quiet, had to turn the a/c on for some "white noise"! Great location near Turnpike offramp- easy on and off. Close to many restaurants and fast food. Safe area. Highly recommend- will definately return!
