Holiday Inn Johnstown Downtown

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Don’t park near any rubble piles that you see, the ceiling is crumbling and falling all over, I was definitely concerned about the integrity of the garage. Also, if you use Orbitz or other online booking besides IHG your room bed requests are only a request and subject to availability, definitely take that into account when making reservations here.

Stayed there for a wedding. Very nice. Enjoyed congregating in the public areas with family and friends.

Clean, spacious room, with small bathroom. You can't order room service with door tag, but have to call- didn't bother. Free van shuttle to local restaurants a bonus.

This was a business trip, and I had my choice of hotels. I selected this one because of the four star rating, but now I've come to realize that was a terrible mistake. Let's start with the hotel room (best part of the trip). I have to say how impressed I am with the cleanliness of the rooms. Looking behind a nightstand for a bedside power outlet, I was very pleased to find they even vacuumed there! Ok, on to the Wifi. This is a business trip, and I've challenged myself to write this review from the hotel's wifi. Needless to say I'm 28 minutes in, having had to reconnect several times and wait MANY minutes for the pages to load. Oh, and it's 7:30am. If it were 6pm, on, I wouldn't have gotten nearly this far. I called the front desk on my first night to see if there were problems, and she (very indifferently) told me there's nothing she could do that it's handled by a 3rd party. No sorry, no commiseration, nothing. This is a huge deal as I need to work, and was forced to drive to the Panera 5 miles away for reliable wifi. On to the front desk staff. Entering and exiting the building, you'd be lucky they even pick up their heads to notice you, and forget a smile or hello! This isn't a big deal, but traveling a lot, it's these small things that make a hotel a place you'd like to return to. Most hotels get it, this one doesn't.

Staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very clean

Hotel was very clean. Staff was extremely nice. Great wine bar.

We stayed here twice with our 6- and 10-year old sons, one summer and one winter stay. PROS - Kids loved: the indoor pool, their adjoining room, the shampoo (!). We loved: the entertainment of the indoor pool (escaping winter cold and summer heat), the ease and menu touches of the restaurant/bar, the friendly staff. Special shout to the bartender...can't remember her name but her great service, knowledge, and care mixing a tasty drink at the end of a long day made our trip feel like a top-notch vacation. CONS: some AC/heater noise (but it did crank up quickly), dishes left in the room after housekeeping (more than once), the big groups that stay here can be noisy in the halls, although we never had a problem with that going on super late.

Comfortable clean room centrally located cheap parking

Very clean and staff very friendly, we were there for an event and would stay again.

The best of Johnstown which is not good. Parking was not included in the room price which was no bargain. Parking fee not mentioned in selection choice. No help by staff with luggage. You are on your own. Poor value.

A sound hotel with nice rooms and adequate amenities. We stopped to visit friends who recently moved to Johnstown and they recommended the Holiday Inn as that is where his company had them stay during their move. Overall, a pleasant enough stay. The rooms were clean and maintained. The hotel is beginning to show signs of age, but we would stay again when visiting.

Pros, the cleaning and room service staff were very nice and pleasant. It had a place to walk our dog and they accepted our pet which was wonderful. Cons, the room smelled awful like smoke, the front desk folks could be more pleasant. I would recommend bringing your own beach towels because the towels they supply for the pool are tiny. It is a 3 star place.

The shower didn't work right and when we got it to work there wasn't any hot water. The towel bar wouldn't stay on the wall. Will not stay there again, wasn't worth the money we paid!

This hotel is showing its age, and the rooms need decent lighting, amenities and - most importantly - new heat & AC systems. All of us who stayed there for a funeral in town had a terrible night's sleep because of the cycling on & off of the loud (and hot) heat. By 4 a.m., the same idea occurred to all of us: turn the thing off. We could find no soft drinks in the vending machines. The dining room is pleasant and the dinners & wine list are more upscale than expected. But, the breakfast menu is too elaborate for our tastes.

We chose this hotel because of the indoor heated pool for our two children. The pool was a good temperature (not too cold) and well maintained. Overall, the room was clean and pleasant. A continental breakfast included in the stay would have been nice.

WE ARRIVED VERY LATE AND WERE TIRED. CHECK-IN WAS QUICK AND EASY. THE WHOLE STAY WAS PLEASANT AND UNENCUMBERED.

Rooms were great. Clean, spacious, and had microwave and fridge in the room. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

It was great, clean and quiet! We came to run the Laural Highlands Trail Ultra and this hotel was great and very convenient to finish!

The Holiday Inn-Johnstown was just what I expected. It was centrally located (as the name indicated). The room was large. Everything was clean and neat. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise - really top notch. The only thing I didn't like was that I had to duck in the hallway - the ceiling on my floor was only around 6'6 (I'm 7' tall).

The Holiday Inn was very clean and comfortable. There was a weekend buffet breakfast and there was breakfast every morning. The coffee was in room and delicious. I would recommend this to anyone.
