What a Rip-off. Completely overpriced. This is a third-rate motel with third rate service and a third rate attitude of employees. I would stay somewhere else next time.

The Yough Plaza Motel is located in the sleepy small town of Ohiopyle. It is the most convenient place to stay near to the famous Frank Lloyd Wright houses "Fallingwater" and "Kentuck Knob" as the other hotels/ motels are much further away and the Yough Plaza is only a 10 minute drive away. We stayed there at the end of April, during the tourist off-season, so it was fairly desolate. The Yough Plaza Motel is fairly simple, plain, and clean. The room had two double beds which each had a thin mattress, clean sheets, okay pillows and rather thin blankets. It also had a table and armchair. The floor is carpeted and had been vaccummed. The bathroom is very clean. It also had a small color TV with bad reception. The room does not have a phone, so no wake up calls. They do not have much of a front desk for reception, we were told that they would put the key in the outside mailbox and for us to let ourselves in.

I was struck by the number of signs and rules posted on the walls. They reserve the right to ask you to leave without cause or a refund. They take inventory of their towels (4 of each) and their is a sign saying the towels are not to be used to wipe cars or bikes down. They will charge you for anything that is missing or damaged. There is absolutely no smoking or pets allowed. My guess is that the management is used to catering to youths on white water rafting trips, as the Yough River is a white water rafting destination.

The Yough Plaza Motel is fine for an overnight pit stop if you can tolerate the freight trains that rumble through the town every hour until 11 p.m. There is a general store nearby which charges grossly inflated prices on food, and a cafe restaurant across the street. Otherwise, I would look for places outside of the town for food and entertainment. We were charged a reasonable rate for our overnight and they had a very reasonable cancellation policy.

I'd stay here again if I was visiting Fallingwater or Kentuck Knob, as long as you don't mind being treated like a 10 year old kid.

If you're visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, I highly recommend the Yough Plaza Motel in Ohiopyle (about a 5-minute drive).

We arrived in the evening and weren't sure what we were going to get but it was a very pleasant place! We stayed in an efficiency suite with 2 bedrooms, living room with TV and pull-out sofa, bathroom, and eat-in kitchen ($217 for 5 adults). There are also regular rooms. Very clean, nicer than a motel, much like your typical vacation rental. GREAT deck outside the door where we ate dinner and breakfast. All the rooms seem to have outdoor areas where you can relax with deck chairs, swings, tables, etc.

The little town of Ohiopyle is just on the river, where you can paddle or just sit on the banks. The old railway station is now a visitor's center, and there is a pedestrian bridge across to an island where there are many trails. I gather that many people do whitewater rafting on the river(s) nearby, and the motel owners run whitewater tours

All in all it was a quiet, clean, rustic and beautiful little town and place to stay! Everyone in our group really wished we could have stayed there longer!
