We had out of town guests staying the week-end of 6/16/2006 for a wedding and due to a lack of hotel space in Pittsburgh caused by the US Open, we booked them into this property. Unfortunately, we found the Inn to be more reminiscent of Disney's haunted mansion than a welcoming retreat in the city.
We arrived late on Saturday night to find an inner-city teen dance going on at the YMCA 2 doors away from the inn. Just as we pulled up in the car, a fight erupted at the dance and several dozen teens spilled into the street knocking over newspaper boxes an running amok until the police arrived to disperse the crowd - strike one.
Upon braving the tumult outside and entering the inn, we found a party in progress featuring a number on inebriated guests, including the owner. After realizing that real 'guests' had arrived, the staff quickly began to shoo the party-goers out, but this reception did not make our guests feel any more at ease - strike two.
Perhaps all that could be forgiven, but to add to the chaos, the accommodations just were not that nice. The rooms felt small and dated, the bed linens did not appear fresh and we were generally extremely disappointed with the overall quality.
There are much nicer places to stay in Pittsburgh, please learn from our mistake and avoid this inn.
