MAY BE worth a second look but I wouldn’t make reservations until I had a chance to check it out. t was clean enough but it needs repairs. The doorknobs are falling off. There are cracks in the tile. The driveway needs to be mowed. The tables on the porch, which needs to be swept, need to be dusted. The Martini Bar had a great menu but they were out of several juices and liqueurs. We invented our own drinks based on what they had. On our second night there, they didn’t even bother to open the bar. Breakfast was a choice of a bagel or an English muffin. I’ve had about the same at a chain motel. Sadly, the restaurant, which had received good reviews is closed. The rooms were spacious but it was hard to shut the doors and we had to ask them to turn on the air conditioning. On the plus side, there was plenty of off-street parking and it was in a good location. Shadyside has several cute restaurants and is in walking distance. In the other direction is Carnegie Mellon University, which is also quite a pleasant walk. It is also a quick drive to the Phipps Conservatory (or within walking distance) and a reasonable distance to the Strip. More effort on the part of the owners would make this a recommendable hotel. Despite these features, there is no information about Pittsburgh or things to do in the area is provided. We asked about a movie and the staff member seemed unfamiliar with the neighborhood. The staff was pleasant but unmotivated.
