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 🙂👍🏻❤️

This is one of those properties that goes above and beyond. I think the commercials for Holiday in were created for this location. For being a limited services "express" hotel they sure have a lot of outstanding features. First and foremost it's a great location for anywhere in the Meadville/Conneaut Lake area with easy access to the highway. Second, the employees are all extremely friendly and happy. Third, the property is spotless. Fourth they have free happy hours, free Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, free popcorn from a machine, they give you a bottle of water at check in, and they have a free ice cream bar in the evenings. I do not get this much at a full-service hotel. In addition, their "continental breakfast redefines the term. There is a huge spread with large quantities. They had 16oz chocolate milk, not some 4oz little gulp. Last the rooms are clean, modern and spacious. The bathrooms rival that of a full-service fancy pants chain. As a person who travels to Meadville on a regular basis, you have won my business for life.

My sister and I decided to stay here on our way to Canada. The staff was wonderful. Loved having soup and ice cream at night. The breakfast was good with hot and cold items. If I am ever in the area, I plan to stay here. If you are on the second floor, go to the back of the property and it is on the second floor.

This is our 2nd yr. Of visiting this motel on this weekend, eating at Crackle Barrel, then going to steam tractor show in Saegerstown, pa the next day. Our very special friends from Pittsburgh around meet us here at the motel. Their drive is 1 hr, ours is 4. What a fantastic time. Motel is phenomenal plus they offer great Aarp rates. Thank u.

From booking to check out this hotel did not disappoint. Stefanie greeted us with a warm friendly smile and provided some great local info. We were visiting Meadville, PA fro the first to tour Allegheny College. She provided us with general information and also added some details about the area. After a long day of driving the heated pool and hot tub where a nice treat but the unexpected complimentary ice cream just made our night. This hotel went above and beyond to make the guests feel at home. Thanks for a great stay. If we return to Meadville we will definitely book our stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

This place is beautiful on the outside and inside. Upon checking in the staff greeted me and treated me very well. They even were grilling burgers for the guests which was a nice surprise. When I got to my room I found it to be very clean and pleasant as expected. After about 10 minutes the front desk clerk called me to make sure everything was okay. The reason for 4 starts instead of 5 is that the next morning I was woken up at 8am by a knock at my door by housekeeping. I was not happy and I asked politely what they wanted through the door and she said "take your time I'll be back." I never had heard or saw her again so not sure what she wanted. There are many eating placed within walking distance and I recommend this hotel if staying in Meadville.

Had a great stay in this clean, comfortable hotel. Breakfast was great and there was lots of space for the whole family to sit. Staff were always around and eager to accommodate our needs. Some family members mentioned hearing children jumping around in the room above them, but I didn't notice anything in my room. We'll surely be back!
