“Convenient hotel, very clean, newer property”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We have stayed here a few times. The rooms are very clean and we slept great. Friendly check in and they upgraded our room. They did a great job with a very nice breakfast buffet, well stocked and they offer healthy options (fruit) as well as the pancake machine. We did not get to use the pool or workout room this visit but they are available if you get the opportunity. Overall, fantastic property and very helpful staff…

First, my one major negative: I find the nightly price of this hotel very high. That said, they certainly don't give you much else to complain about. The property and rooms are exceedingly well-kept. The bed was comfortable. There's an indoor pool and fitness center (and free access to the Franklin YMCA if that's not good enough). And there were plenty of free breakfast choices, although it's always disappointing to get processed omelet products instead of something fresher. The friendly helpful woman in the breakfast area made up for that by gladly fetching a list of ingredients so my gluten-free wife could eat (the omelet product, it turns out, has modified food starch, which almost always is a wheat trap).

I stay here frequently on business.The hotel always appears fresh, new and clean. The staff is great and very attentive and very accommodating to special requests when reserving rooms. The breakfast room is always clean and the food is kept hot and fresh.

Stayed here for a family trip for the Oil Heritage Festival in Oil City with my immediate and extended family. Our room was clean, and well attended. Breakfast was excellent and well-kept. The location was very convenient for us to travel to Oil City and the surrounding areas. The hotel is next to several restaurants for dinners and lunches and a Wal-Mart to pick-up stuff for picnic lunches. We were all very happy to have stayed here.

Room Tip: Our party had five rooms throughout the hotel including a handicapped room. All were very nice.

The room was very nice and clean. Entire staff seemed efficient and friendly. They did not have our room ready but instantly upgraded our room. The breakfast was delicious. It was not fancy but the selection was awesome. Only complaint was the indoor pool was cold.

Overall good experience. Was given a large handicapped room at end of hall. Hotel was clean and quiet. Room was quite plain, but efficient. Close to the local restaurants, shopping and easy access to main roadways.

Being situated about 6 miles from Oil city and Franklin the location is a bit remote. Given it is an "Express" no hotel restaurant available; the 2 that we drove to were not very good, when there is nothing to do back at the Inn then I would look to spend a couple of hours enjoying a meal, Maybe we were unlucky but after 30 mins we were done and dusted with the meal.

on the positive the staff were genuinely interested in making sure everything was Ok for you during your stay. the rooms are a good size & clean.. Oerall evertything looks quite new. Gym is a bit basic, but exactly as per the photo.

Felt the cost @ at around $140 was a bit on the high side though for what was on offer. breakfast was quite basic. Free WFI .
