Where to stay northwest of Pittsburgh

People on this forum have been so helpful in the past as we've gotten familiar with Pittsburgh (our daughter is now a junior at Pitt), and travelled to and from Maryland. Now we're traveling through Pittsburgh to Ohio, and are wondering if anyone knows a decent non-chain hotel/motel/inn/resort within about an hour northwest of the city, near the PA Turnpike/Ohio Turnpike. We'll spend one or two nights before heading to Huron, OH.

Thanks in advance.

Another way to go would be to stay on Interstate 70 to Oglebay Resort in Wheeling, then continue on 70 to 77 north to 80. You could stop in Ohio's Amish Country as you head north on 77. Also, you could follow the river north from Wheeling (stop and pick up some Fiestaware in Newell) then cut over to the turnpike/80 near Youngstown.

I'd second that opinion - there isn't a whole lot of anything non-chain or resort like near Youngstown area. You're going through some very rural country between the Cranberry exit and the OH line on the turnpike.

Thanks so much! We stayed at Oglebay Resort after we dropped our daughter off her freshman year (first time as empty nesters). It was wonderful. We had considered that option, but thought I might be missing something wonderful in northwest PA or southeast OH. I love the idea of traveling along the river. Really appreciate your comments.
