We're just passing through on a long trek from Maine to Pittsburgh. Nice amenities in a small room: fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, flat screen tv, wifi and a plate of cookies at registration. Easy on and off 81. First room was non-smoking but smelled terrible upon opening the door - so we were switched out. This room does not have the ability to have a fan on continually for circulation - so that may prove frustrating. Pricing is all over the place. We called earlier in the day and the rate started at $126, then $106 with AAA. But we had a travel coupon book (found at your local grocery store or travel stop) and that coupon said $69 (with no reservation.) But when I arrived and passed over the coupon I was told the room would be $89. Apparently they had sold out of the $69 rooms. My iPhone appeared to have another offer -- but I had ran out of negotiating energy! We're towing a small uhaul and there was plenty of empty space in the parking lot - which was good and very important. It's the Thursday before Thanksgiving - the place does not feel full.
