Nice room. The only issue is access from the main road. Entry required driving past the motel and turning around. The staff was very helpful.

Traveling by myself for Pitt homecoming so I didn't need anything more. It wasn't the Taj Mahal but it was a bed, a TV, a shower and your standard continental breakfast. All sufficient. Just make sure you've got a good navigational app and you'll make your way through the neighborhoods and into downtown before too long.

It was clean and comfortable. It felt very welcoming.

The hotel was sufficient for one night stay however the room was cold on arrival the heater was not turned on in advance! There was only enough towels for one person and the soaps and lotion smelled awful!! The room was very dusty and the carpets were filthy!! The furniture needed much updating including the tv. The pillows were hard and very uncomfortable (Not feather pillows yuck!) I would not particularly choose to book this hotel again and would not reccomend it! It was also VERY noisy constant traffic in and out of the parking lot and the fridge kept buzzin all night long!! definately not a cozy,quiet, relaxing, good night sleep stay here!

What I would expect from a hotel at this price. Great staff.

The room was clean. The shower was hot. The room was quiet, and was fairly cheap.

My friends and I were getting away for a few days to go golf and take in the town. Great value! Just bring your own iron and board, they didn't have one in the room. :-)

came out for two baseball games... no frills no thrills just a cheap room to stay over night to sleep and shower... easy ride to the city... room had no bar soap... this room was ok for what we wanted...

We originaly booked our vacation for friday-sunday, we decided that we wanted to leave thursday instead and check in that night. it was a huge hassle on both 'orbitz' part and 'econo lodge' part. the econo lodge is about 15-20 mins away form downtown pittsburgh, alot further then we had anticipated..

awfull, you said 15min my butt, got lost 3 times arrived at furnal home as they were leaving for the grounds and it being my sister i was in the back of the line..got lost again back to the hotel. with bugs in my bed, and on the walls.off three highways traffic backed up.wouldnt send anyone there.no shopping plaza, no store,cobwebs in my shower.what more do you want.

a stop on a long road trip home .. had a casual dinner at Fireside restaurant just down the road from hotel....good food and cheap prices ....smoking permitted here

it was economy and a decent drive to heinz field. good that is next to the motor way.

Took in a football game hotel was within 5 miles and was easy to get to the stadium. AC/heating unit was rather loud and there was only two towels in the bathroom to use could of had more available right in the room.

THE REFRIGERATOR AND MICROWAVE OVEN WERE A VERY NICE TOUCH. HAVING AN ALARM CLOCK WOULD HAVE BEEN WELCOMED. THE MAID SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL AND THE CLERKS WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THE LOCATION TO VARIOUS INTERSTATES AND HIGHWAYS MAKES NAVIGATION EASY. ALSO, IT'S NOT IN AN ISOLATED AREA, AS THERE IS A FAIRLY NEARBY MALL AND SHOPPING AND EATING PLACES. THERE IS A FAMILY STYLE RESTURANT RIGHT NEXT DOOR WITH GOOD FOOD. IF NOT FOR THE HARD BED WHICH MADE SLEEPING A BIT DIFFICULT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE BEST STAYS WE HAVE HAD IN A ECONOMY CLASS MOTEL.

The room was a nice size. It contained one double bed and a small sofa. The sink was outside the bathroom which I found a bit awkward when I had friends waiting for me to change since the bathroom itself was a bit small. The shower was made for someone short - I had to scrunch down to get my head wet and I'm only 5 ft tall. Otherwise I found it nice and clean, especially for the price I paid. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The mall and several restaurants are about 10 minutes driving distance down the road. Pittsburgh was about a 20 minute ride depending on traffic.

I chose this hotel because it was conveniently located right outside Pittsburgh (5-10 minutes to downtown). It is a great location, right off the interstate and there is a restaurant right next door. The room was slightly outdated but it had a refrigerator and microwave so that was nice. The staff was super friendly, really quick check in and out...the morning breakfast was even good, made our own waffles which is a plus because its hot and fresh. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, its a great deal that's for sure!

Better than I Thought

The room nice and comfortable.but the guy in the front disk is the most stubid man i have ever seen.He called at 11 p.m and asked to come in urgent to the front disk. he refused to say why? and keep calling me.I came to the front desk finally, and found out that he wanted me to contact [...] to get their card number, because it is not working with him.I could not belevie that, and i ended up paying cash and with creidt through the internet.by summary, a stupid man like that can destroy your next day

The hotel was pretty average. Rooms where pretty big with a tv, fridge, microwave, round dining table and desk. My main concerns were that the bathroom shower water pressure was very low, making showering a difficult task. Additionally, the room fluctuated in temperature rather quickly, likely because of an air-draft. A very convenient feature was the parking (at least 1 spot outside of each room). The hotel is 4, 1 story strips.[...]

Just used the hotyel as a place to sleep. It served its purpose.
