This is a great road hotel located about a mile north of the PA Turnpike but off of the road behind a Howard Johnson and a local restaurant/banquet hall. The location off of the road makes the hotel look like an old conference center, but also makes the location quiet and peaceful. The complaint about the hall carpet is a past problem since the hotel was recently renovated. The hall and rooms we occupied showed signs of new carpets wallpaper and paint. Everything was clean and fresh, and the beds were comfortable.
The hotel seems to be family owned and the family lives behind the office. The check-in area and lobby are a throw-back to the 60's and 70's family hotel - long before the chains standardized construction. The point is, you can tell that they care for the building like it was their home, and the guests their friends.
My only complaint is a security issue. Our visit was obviously in the hotel's off season, and an entire wing of the hotel sat with lights off just beyond our rooms. Additionally, the entrance that we used for our rooms did not have the commonly used card readers allowing complete access to the hotel corridors. That made the women in our group just a bit uncomfortable.
All in all, for the price, the hotel was unbeatable, especially for an overnight passing through. There is a small pool that was still closed for the season, and a continental breakfast that consisting of coffee and boxed baked goods.
If you want in-room movies, shower caps, and flat screen TV's, those are available down the road for $100 more a night. If its a good night's sleep and a hot shower that you want then save your money and stay here.
