Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very clean from every perspective. Quiet, though close to the highway.
Convenience store right next door.
Convenient parking right in front of the room.

There was supposed to be a breakfast, but I was never told where.
The WiFi password was not on the key envelope.
The carpet was squishy.

Other reviewers were spot on in their assessment of this hotel. The carpet is aged and not great, the rooms are CLEAN, the beds are comfortable. Sleep quality was good. Breakfast is very light. Employee interactions were good. A great spot for just needing somewhere to sleep after a concert. Would stay again.

I'm Diamond with Both Choice and Best Western. I've Never stayed at an Econo Lodge before. It was Late, I was Exhausted and it was right off the Highway. I Pulled up, checked my I phone and saw an 81% Recommended. I said it's Only to Rest, I'll Get a Real hotel in the Morning. Needless to say, I'm Staying Here for All # nights. Alex the Late Night Manager was so Beyond Kind. I was Tired, Probably Not Pleasant and He Treated me like His Family. He saw how tired I was and Offered to Help me unpack the car. Hello, I Don't get that Treatment at Hiltons. The Hotel is Not Expensive, But Don't Misunderstand That For Being CHEAP !!! You Get MORE Than Your $$$ Worth Here .

Called to confirm reservation, Mike answer the phone at desk with rudeness and extremely bad tone, Since I am from Pittsburgh area , he is not going to honor reservation, I live 50 miles away and wanted to stay near airport to catch early flight. But Mike and this hotel does not know how hospitality industry works and I never posted review in my entire life but he threatened me go ahead complaint if I want. Not a good business.

Showed up really late - almost midnight - so was not sure what we were really getting into. Huge potholes in lot - found them bu surprise. The rooms were very, very, very outdated. If you need a place just to lay your head for one night - and one night only, you should be ok.

We had a good giggle at the bottle opener....in the bathroom...right beside the toilet. It was clean but really needs to be updated. Some of the doors did not have room numbers on them, so you just hoed for the best.

It did have a free breakfast the was cereal, pastries, waffles and of course coffee/tea.

Being an auto club member, I received 10% off during booking. The motel is very conveniently located, just off I-79. The room has a good size with 2 double beds for a family of 4. My room was also equipped with microwave & fridge without extra charge. The complimentary breakfast was bland, with just cereals and pre-packed muffins. Milk and orange juice came in jugs. I booked this motel because it was the cheapest I could find on the internet with the 412-area code (i.e. Pittsburgh). Overall it was just an average stay. A Motel 6 nearby was actually a few bucks cheaper, but with basic amenities.

Was looking for a place kinda close to Heinz Field without breaking the bank. It's about 6 miles from there. One story motel, not sure how to describe it but the rooms were in like individual strips. Anyway, it was a nice set up, rooms were recently renovated. Clean, fairly spacious with double beds, nice sized TV, fridge & microwave. Both people at front desk I spoke to were very nice, we stayed 2 nights. She told me breakfast was 6am-9am but we didn't get up in time. There is a Get Go next door, that it also nice & has lots of food. We really enjoyed our stay, we would DEFINITELY stay here again!

We are visiting Pittsburgh and this is close enough, about 15 minutes. The price was great. The rooms are simple but nice. The rooms are updated for real as of our visit July 8, 2016. Everything was clean and modern. Shower had a great head, WiFi was free and worked great, and beds were clean, and it did NOT smell like smoke (thank God). I never trust hotels, but take my word for it, this is great.

When I pulled up to this motel, I was concerned. It was late, it looked like it was not kept up and the guest signing up in front of me was a little disconcerting. When I walked into the room, the style was outdated. I didn't even know if I would stay the second night. However, it was a super comfortable bed and the room was spotlessly clean. The air conditioner, TV and wireless were in perfect working order. There was a good sized refrigerator and small microwave in the room. I liked that the room had the sink outside of the bathroom. Service was quick - we needed a cot at the last minute and they were quick to get one over to the room despite it being after midnight and only one person on duty. Breakfast was good, despite the limited menu. There is a convenience store within walking distance with a wide variety of food choices. It is easy to get to Rts. 79 and 376. For the price, it was just what we needed.
