We found the pool and hot tub to be really great! Very clean and well maintained. The entire hotel was very clean. The rooms were a little smaller than what we are used to, but the amenities made up for it. They offer free popcorn, cookies, soup and a breakfast buffet every day. You can also get free bottles of water at the front desk. We found Jennifer K., the night desk clerk, to be extremely pleasant and knowledgeable about the hotel and the area. She went over and above to make our stay great!

Let me first say ALL the staff that we came across was super friendly!! From the first step in the door to the time we left! The bottles of water when we checked in was a nice touch! The toiletries in the room are PERFECT! If I'd known, I would not have brought my own. And I ALWAYS do! I love the idea of the antibacterial wipes for the TV remote and such! Thanks for that! Nightly ice cream and other treats are great! The young man at the desk Sat evening made a prefect suggestion for takeout pizza from a place called Gianna"s (SP?). That was probably the best takeout pizza the hubby and I ever had! The pool area was very clean and relaxing I even say a few pool toys for the kids! This hotel makes us even happier to be rewards members. Its great to have a place to stay where you can really feel as close to home as possible! To sum it up, as our friends said "This is what you want in a hotel when you are traveling out of town!"

We arrived late to the hotel and were greeted by friendly staff and free refreshments for ourselves and kids. We enjoyed the beautiful pool and hot tub area open until 11:00. Our room was very clean and comfortable. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious hot breakfast, with great service and lots of variety. Will definitely go back the next time we travel this way!

Rooms are average size, but clean and tidy. Location is excellent with many restaurants within walking distance. The service is outstanding, and the breakfast and evening snacks were more than expected!

This hotel will meet all expectations of any 5 star venue you've been to. From the welcoming staff who got us checked in, to the the lady from housekeeping who insisted on going downstairs to get us a luggage cart to get everything out easily the next morning. Soup and ice cream available for the evening. Rooms were very clean, breakfast typical for this type of establishment. Often times it's little things that push our everyday average experiences over the top. This hotels people, and those little extras make it stand above the rest. I'd give them a 7 but the scale only allows a 5.

State convention. Room very clean. Breakfast buffet one of the best I have had at a hotel. Nice touch with CANDY IN rooms and hallways. Soup offered in afternoon which us very nice. Recommend hotel for family's work couples. A k so has swimming pool.

Love this place. My wife and I stay here about 4 time a year on weekend visit to see our kids, the staff is excellent and very friendly, overall great place to stay. It's in the heart of meadville not far from the lake or I-79, Erie is only 35 minutes up the road. The only negative if you want to call it that is rooms 202 and 204. The building is set into a hillside so the rear parking lot has a direct entrance into the 2nd floor and that entrance is in the middle of these two rooms. 202 has the elevator and ice machine to boot. So, as I said earlier, I will always stay here when in town because it is by far the best place in meadville, but stay way from 202 and 204

Although it's an older hotel and needs a few updates, the staff goes out of their way to make it a great stay. When I checked in, the desk clerk handed me a cold bottle of water and a small bag of pretzels. Then she told me that they would be setting out popcorn, cookies, soup and a 25 cent cocktail hour later that night. My room was very clean and housekeeping even set out a disposable anti-bacterial wipe for me to wipe everything down [the tv remote, light switches, hair dryer, etc.]. What a great touch! If I am in Meadville again, I will stay here.

This isn't your run of the mill HI Express. The people shine as soon as you walk in. I was greeted by Jennifer who couldn't have been nicer, giving me an upgrade, suggesting restaurants, and even digging up a free appetizer coupon for me. This facility has been upgraded to the newer IGH specs and is in very good condition. They offer soup and a happy hour bar during the week. I highly recommend this facility.

Welcoming staff from front desk to maintenance crew. Everyone greeted us w kindness Great soft baked fresh cookies and warm popcorn were ready for us upon arrival?!! Comfortable beds/pillows clean safe rooms. Fabulous hot tub and big pool. Even at night they had chicken noodle soup (tasted like homemade!!) and a variety of ice cream!!! All complimentary!! if have to say this was by far the #1 hotel we have stayed in the u.s. And to end our stay there as I checked out they gave us a cold bottle of water for our commute home 🙂👍🏻❤️
