“Do Not Stay at Microtel Pittsburgh Airport”
Reviewed October 31, 2007

1.Prior flight stay at the Microtel Motel at Ross near the Pittsburgh Airport---we were promised a shuttle flight to the airport while we could leave our car at the hotel for the duration of our vacation. There was no shuttle available from 1:00 a.m until 5:00 a.m. We had to secure a taxi reservation. We did this and no taxi was to show the next morning as no driver picked up the contract. Unfortunately, the Yellow Cab Taxi Co. of Pittsburgh failed to inform us of this very important information. We had to hurry and secure our own parking at the Charlie Brown Parking and pay an additional $51.00. This money must be refunded to us as we were promised free parking and a shuttle.
2.The Microtel Motel was a huge disappointment as the room was dirty as was the bathroom with remains in there of the past guest. This was gross.
3.At the Microtel Motel we were told to expect a new only two year old motel. We found a dirty room and turned down the bedspread only to find a large brown stain on the inside. It was disgusting.
4.There was no safe at Microtel. Because of this when we went out for dinner, we had to carry our most precious travel documents, passports and funds. This caused us a definite level of stress.

We just spent the weekend at the Microtel, Inn. If you are planning to do stuff downtown, it's a bit far flung, but it is convenient to the Parkway. The surrounding area is fabulous if you are into the convenience of Mall America. Tons of chain restaurants and shops.
Target is directly behind the Inn.

The rooms are very spartan. I said they were much like dorm rooms.
Melamine furniture, very small rooms. My husband said it was a Motel 5.
Not quite up to being a Motel 6.

Don't forget anything, the only thing they provide is soap and towels.
My sister was upset about there not being a blow dryer provided. Get a room on the ends since they have problems getting hot water to the rooms in the middle. Not funny in January.

Free shuttle back to the airport is nice. A bowl of Fruit Loops is provided at breakfast.

My take on this experience is that who really wants to spend money on a hotel room in Pittsburgh? If I were stranded in a snow storm the Microtel Inn would be wonderful. I don't think I'll be choosing it again for any other vacation destination.
