Renovo is an old railroad town. It's very run-down and poor, and somewhat depressing to see. The scenery is great, though. You'll see a lot of hunters, rough-necks, falling down buildings, etc., but in general the people are friendly.

I have stayed at this "hotel" four times - there just aren't too many options in Renovo. The first time, my room was infested with ladybugs. Fortunately, I like ladybugs and I didn't lose too much sleep over it. I was bitten a few times during the night, perhaps not by ladybugs but bedbugs or spiders. Bathroom was a disaster when I got my room, toilet paper all over the floor, but I complained and was promptly relocated to a more suitable room. Paint is peeling from the walls in most of the rooms, some ceiling tiles were missing, and the bed sheets didn't smell clean. Don't expect your room door to lock or even close completely.

There is a restaurant on the first floor with cheap food and it's pretty good. There's also a bar, which was recently added, and the drinks are cheap. The bar is the nicest part of the building.

Here is the skinny, The rooms are junk, plain and simple. the new owners are putting a lot of money into the place so they are making improvements which is a good thing. The rooms are small, Some rooms dont have their own bathroom, you have to use a community floor bathroom, the rooms are clean, but the hotel and everything in it is old, like turn of the century old. dont go in thinking 4 seasons you will be terribly dissapointed. i would rate the rooms a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10 they could be worse. here is the thing though. it is by far the best place that i am aware of in renovo. so although it isnt the best it is the best there and everyday it is getting better. the facilities other than the room are nice, it has a new bar with good prices, the restaurant is clean and the food is good although if you want a refill you may have to go get it yourself the wait staff is nice and friendly just not good at refilling drinks. The hotel staff including the owners are possibly the nicest people you could ever meet they go so far out of their way for you it is amazing. so when you add that all together you end up with about a 5 or 6 out of ten, if your a room rat and never leave it you will be dissapointed otherwise its not to bad.

I've stayed at Yesterday's year after year for an annual reunion. Each year I put up with the dirty, smelly rooms - but this year is the LAST. I booked 3 rooms - and they put me in a different room then I was told about when booking. There was an air conditioner in only one room. There were no screens in the windows. On the second day of my stay we were not allowed to use the water or the toilets. On the third (and last day) they lost electricity due to a storm. No generator, no emergency lighting - instead they had candles lit - which might not be so bad except for the fact that their FIRE EXTINGUISHERS EXPIRED IN 1993 (16 years ago). They refused to refund any of my money. AVOID

Unless you would like to stay in a room that is a little bit bigger than a storage closet with a twin bed in it, stay away from the fourth floor of Yesterday's. The PA state Flaming Foliage Festival was held the weekend I stayed there, the town becomes extremely crowded at this time. I was charged $65.00 for this "room", and the walls were so thin, my neighbors might as well have been in the same bed with me... when they spoke, it was like they were standing next to me.

I have stayed in other rooms on lower floors in this hotel in the past, they do need work, but they are clean. That is the best compliment I can pay this place... the rooms are clean... but this particular weekend the staff did fall behind on keeping up with cleaning the shared bathrooms.

Yesterday's is an old YMCA hotel that once served the Pennsylvania Railroad maintenance shops in Renovo.

The hotel basically is in need of major improvements. The bed's sag, the electrical service is wanting to the point of their using extension cords under the door sills to provide power the old television set in the room. There was a smoke alarm in the room but it was not mounted on a wall but rather laying on the dresser. The water was hot and had good pressure but the sinks are in need of the basics like a rubber stopper. There is no elevator service for the four story building.

The quality and quantity of the food in the restaurant was OK and the value of the meal was good.

If you need to stay overnight in the Renovo area I would suggest that you look for a modern motel in Lock Haven which is about 40 minutes away. This rustic hotel is not where you want to take your family to stay.
