My husband and I stayed at this hotel recently on our drive across PA from Ohio on our way to Boston, MA. I made the reservation prior to our trip and found this Holiday Inn Express to be close to the highway making it easy to access. The price was right. I was hopeful that it would be a pleasant one night stay when we were offered complimentary shuttle service within a 2 mile radius of the hotel. We had been on the road a while and were tired so the offer of a ride was appreciated. However the bed was the worst. Very hard and with a plastic type mattress pad that made me hot and sweaty during the night even without heat on in the room. I would have gotten up and taken it off but I am leery of removing mattress pads in hotel rooms. It was not a good night of sleep for me at all. The breakfast is so so but is complimentary. The staff at the hotel were very nice.
