most convenient and quiet Oakland stay

This was the second time I stayed at this hotel. Staff is MOST helpful and pleasant. My favorite things are that the balcony sliding doors DO open and there's a bookcase in the lobby where folks can take or leave kids' books or reading to get one through an airport delay!

Not a bad place

This isn't a bad hotel. It could be a little cheaper but that's forgivable. The room was reasonably big with a desk and TV and full size bathroom. The place was clean and the staff were nice. BIG plus is that they have a computer in the lobby you can use for free and PRINT for free too. I hope they don't make the mistake of discontinuing this service. It's a Godsend if you don't happen to bring a laptop and/or smartphone. Not everybody has a smartphone and those who have laptops don't always bring them. Location wise, it's right next to U Pitt, though that wasn't my target. Mine was downtown. By cab you can get to the Lawrence Convention Center for about $9 but walk up a street or two and you can catch a bus. You can also catch 28X back to the airport when you're ready to go home. 28X will also get you downtown, not far from the Convention Center, just be sure to get off at that stop because the next is far away from it.

Not a bad location and people are polite

The location of the hotel was not that bad. It was relatively farther than any other hotels that are located near the University of Pittsburgh. However, it was in walkable location (about 15 minutes away from the school). Also, if we consider the price. it was a good deal. However, they do not provide any breakfast. So, you need to find stores that are near by. But, then on same building, there is Panera. So, I guess it was OK.

Great spot in Pittsburgh

This was the most reasonable hotel I found in Pittsburgh near the University. Still, it was great! Fresh coffee in the lobby any time. The rooms have coffeemaker, a refrigerator and a microwave. Rooms were kept clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. They run a shuttle for the vicinity. Bus lines are nearby as is the hospital. Restaurant in building for breakfast and sandwiches. What's not to like?

Quality Inn near Pitt

This Quality Inn was a good no-frills place to rest your head while in Pittsburgh. The room was basic but clean. The free internet service was good enough to connect to my office over VPN. Given the prices of other hotels in the area, it was an excellent value.

In need of Upgrade

Tv's are old and bulky. Wi-Fi was not that fast. very slow this time around. The furnishing need to be thrown out and upgraded. Chairs do not adjust to better height at the desk and are very hard. Switches all do not work at the bedside and there was no lamp at the one side of the bed where the phone and clock were. Rooms need mini frigerators also. I asked for one and none were avail. Had to use Ice to keep some medications cold. Bathroom the floor gets totally wet when your showering. no plastic liner on the shower curtain to keep water in.
