Recent guest reviews

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 πŸ˜• 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 πŸ’•πŸ’•

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.
