2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a fine hotel conveniently located in Meadville, with easy access to everything you need. The hotel was very quiet. I appreciated the friendly check-in. Mattresses were comfortable and the room layout was good. The reason I am giving the hotel four stars is because I was disappointed by the breakfast provided. Perhaps I should be giving TripAdvisor reviewers the four stars, though, since they got my hopes up about this. The breakfast is not on par with what you would find at Embassy Suites or even Hyatt hotels. It's fine, but if you are used to those other places, keep your expectations in check. The food service staff was friendly and competent. I'd recommend this hotel overall.

We were in the area for our daughter's overnight visit at college. Another daughter and friend on this trip hoped to check-in early to swim. We arrived about 40 minutes earlier than normal check-in time and were told no rooms were clean and available. Ashley was very accommodating telling the girls they could use the pool until a room was ready. We had time and decided to wait. It wasn't more than 20 minutes before a room became available. Check-in thereafter was quick and efficient. After the college visit, I picked the girls up and went out for dinner. Once we returned and turned down the sheets, one of the beds had gritty black specs on the mattress. I don't think it was bugs but it left us feeling a bit uncomfortable. When I reported this to the office, Jennifer was quick to respond, apologetic, moved us into another room, calling to check on us later that night. The free breakfast was typical hotel pancakes, pre-made omelets, bacon, sausage, breads, muffins, fruit, cereal. The ladies attending to breakfast were friendly and helpful making sure we were satisfied and full. There are freebie snacks everywhere. Free soup, chips, popcorn, candy, even ice cream. Staff are helpful and friendly. The dirty sheet in our first room seemed a unique situation because the hotel is otherwise very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. The location is a quiet and convenient spot in the Meadville area. The staff was just outstanding and attentive.

We did the snow tubing and stay package with Whispering Pines Golf Course, we traveled with a group of more than ten and the hotel staff was nice enough to use the breakfast lounge to have pizza together. The pool area and rooms were clean and well kept.

Room was nice and clean Bed super comfortable Free popcorn cookies water and ice cream when we arrived. Lots of amenities in the room. Quiet Fantastic breakfast! Close to highway. Would highly recommend!!

We stayed here for 5 nights visiting family in the area. The staff could not have been more kind. The free nightly soup, cookies, and popcorn were a very nice touch. The breakfast was always fully stocked and well tended to. I highly recommend the hotel!

We held our PA State Auditors Convention. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpfull. Spotless facility. Very comfortable. Conveniently located close to an interstate exit and many restaurants and shopping.

I'm staying at this hotel as I type. Its almost 11pm at night and its LOUD. I can clearly and loudly hear 2 sets of voices. I know the loud and inconsiderate teenagers are beside me. We have one of those rooms with the door that adjoins to another room and their noise comes right thru. I can't quite determine where the other noise is coming...I think below us. My daughter plays sports and we travel ALOT and I can say that I've never encountered a room with such poor sound proofing. These walls must be paper thin! It'ss going to be a loooooong night night 😕 Overall the hotel seems to be clean and well maintained. If you plan on staying here, just bring ear plugs!!!

Wow what a hotel!, From being greeted with a smile and the smell of homemade cookies to the wonderful breakfast in the morning. This hotel goes way beyond what you would normally get at a Holiday Inn. My 10 year old son said it best "wow mom, I feel like we are VIP's" Thank you to all the staff for kicking off our vacation in an amazing way!

The owners of this hotel have got the concept of Hospitality and Customer Service completely right. Reasonable rates, Very friendly, professional and courteous front desk service. Rooms are very clean, roomy and comfortable. The added pluses are numerous: Free Popcorn, Cookies and Water Free Cold Cuts, Cheese and Crackers and homemade soup from 5-6 pm and to top it all off a 25 cent happy hour. - with a most friendly and down-to-earth hostess & Co-hostess. We had a great time conversing with them. What more could one ask for. Coupons to a local Italian restaurant 300 ft from the hotel ended the evening with a flair. Finally an outstanding and sating breakfast. Kudos to all! Best Holiday Inn we have ever stayed in - Congratulations!

Wow!!! All the little extras in this hotel make it a 5. The staff are incredible with a lot of attention to detail. The little extras (mints in the room, 25 cent wine , welcome phone calls...). Thank you 💕💕
