Reviewed March 8, 2012

This b&b is very comfortable and in a great old house. Breakfast was excellent and served in a pleasant breakfast room with a number of cozy tables for two. If you're looking for lots of interaction with the innkeepers, this isn't the place for you. We don't like staying where innkeepers hover so it suited us perfectly. The location was great, very close to Carson St. We'd go back.

This is a b&b with a lot of character in an area with a lot of history. It's fun to stay in a gigantic old house that is so well preserved (and not split up into individual apartments). The decor is very appropriate for the house (definitely not a modern design), like walking into your rich grandma's house. We stayed in the attic room, which is split up over two floors, and has lots of space. It was a quiet stay during the week and the garden in the summer was really nice to sit in. We were a couple but it seems like a nice place for a wedding. It's a great location for its proximity to restaurants and nightlife.

A few complaints though. I didn't realize no one would be there to let us in and found the door locked. It seems like someone forgot to arrange a key for us but after a call to the manager it was fine. Could have been smoother though. Also, parking was a little bit of a hassle on the street. Breakfast was delicious but it was very early and they weren't too flexible with the times. Maybe better suited to older guests. It was a nice stay but I think my parents would have enjoyed it more.

Thank you for the beautiful wedding atmosphere that you provided on Saturday. The room and garden area was beautiful! Nancy, you were so kind, gracious, and attentive. It made it go smoothly. Everyone that came to the wedding also enjoyed it. They had a great time and loved the atmosphere. It was such a pleasure to stay here. Have a great season and enjoy your teaching retirement.

Room Tip: Our families stayed in different rooms and everyone seemed to enjoy their time here.

The off-site owners are gruff when contacted by phone; Dave was even more of a curmudgeon in person: barely speaking at breakfast, and happy (!) that we were not going to be there on Xmas morning, even though they were just serving a buffet and not a usual breakfast.
The room was cold, and the request to avoid sitting on the comforter was unusual - OK so we didn't sit on it, but we used it to cover us, along with a thin blanket we found after searching through every drawer in the room - we were almost ready to borrow a blanket from the adjacent vacant room.
MGI is at risk for safety code violations. On our arrival, the second floor smoke alarm was hanging from the ceiling without a battery; the next morning another on the third floor was beeping. On our final night, the smoke alarm in our room began to beep - our call to Dave on Xmas Eve was met with a grouchy reply, and we spent 30 minutes listening to the squeal. On his arrival, he removed not only the battery, but the smoke alarm as well. He informed us that they were all 5 years old and defective. NICE!
We ate breakfast one day, it was middling satisfactory; another morning we did not, and left to go out at 10 AM and Dave was already gone - our bed was never made up that day, and there was a basket of fresh towels at our door. No one retrieved the dirty linen. Subpar!
We spent my birthday at MGI, and I was sent an email that I would receive a box of chocolates as a birthday gift - the chocolates never appeared. It's not that I need or want any more candy - just don't offer something you don't plan to deliver.
All in all, we were very disappointed We will not return.

We stayed in Morning Glory in November 2011 when visiting our sons in Pittsburgh. We liked the location very much and hospitality of the host very much. The host recommended to us the best restaurants nearby (Thanks!) and told us a lot about the history of the area. The room was clean and conveniently furnished . There were also other rooms downstairs available for guests for reading and talking with friends. We noticed that other people who came as a numerous group of wedding guests enjoyed the stay very much. And even the B&B was full of guests, because of the arrangement of rooms, everybody was feeling comfortable. Breakfast were home-made, elegantly served and very tasty. Strongly recommended.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Morning Glory Inn this past October while visiting Pittsburgh for the first time and attending our first Steelers game. While starting to plan the trip I had started with hotel and found that the ones in the areas closest to the stadium were outrageously priced and decided to check on Bed and Breakfasts which I prefer over hotels. Upon checking out the Morning Glory, reading the reviews, and seeing the location I knew we could not go wrong, especially with the price compared to the hotels over half the cost!!!
Upon arrival we were not disappointed the location is great. It is right off the main street of the South Side neighborhood. We were in walking distance to station Square where we got the Gateway Clipper over to the Stadium. Following the game we bar hopped and Carson Street and were right by the Inn, it was fantastic. The niext day we did some sightseeing and the Morning Glory was in a central location to everything.
The room was perfect, the bathroom spacious and clean, the bed was a temper pedic and it was beyond comfortable and did not want to get out of it. The down comforter on the bed was amazing and want to purchase it for my own home. The inn itself was nice and clean and the breakfast was delicious as well as excellent service.
We plan on visiting again very soona and hope to make it an anual trip!!
I would defintely reccommend the Morning Glory as THE place to stay in Pittsburgh. I know I wouldnt stay anywhere else.!!

We stayed at the MGI on Sun, Nov 6th. Like many others have stated, our room key was just waiting for us with instructions to call to get the code to access the house. While the room and bathroom were clean, they were not sparkling. We did not have any soap or body wash in the shower and there were large bottles of shampoo and conditioner for guests to share....

There was also a note to remove the comforter before sitting on the bed. Why can't I sit on the comforter? Does this mean they are not washed after each guest?

I tried many different ways to get the TV to come on the next morning to see some local news, but could not get it to come on and could not find a remote anywhere in the room!

When we went down to breakfast, we were served luke-warm coffee that was extremely strong. After a plate of 7 or 8 small pieces of fruit, we were served (3) dollar-sized blueberry pancakes made with yogurt and cornmeal. That's it. No bacon or sausage or anything else. We certainly left hungry!

For $199/night, we certainly expected soap to wash with, along with a more substantial b'fast.

Won't be back!
