Close to the campus. Rooms were nice. Hallways and common areas were hot. Courtyard was very hot. Fans would help.

Upon check-in we were asked if we would mind being upgraded due to a shortage of our room type. We accepted and for this "inconvenience" the staff provided vouchers for breakfast and some drinks. The hotel is a bit dated, but it seems like they are in the process of touching things up. Our room was clean and quiet. The pool was thoroughly enjoyed by our children. Breakfast at the hotel was also very good. Overall, we had a positive experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by polar1 Good overall
Not a bad stay. The lack of microwave and fridge made it not quite as pleasant. They did have a microwave in the lobby. This wouldn't be much of an issue normally, but sometimes when I stay the room contains them and other times it does not. I travel for business the same day each week, so it's more difficult to pack when I'm not sure the amenities will be the same.

The hotel is in great shape and our visit was a good one. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff members that we encountered in the hotel or the restaurant were all polite and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reg3640 Comfortable bed and great food at breakfast
Upon arrival, I started looking for a "name" restaurant to eat breakfast in the morning. Finding none I recognized we decided to eat at the restaurant in the hotel. The breakfast there was as good as any I've had and I highly recommend. We also asked for a room with a refrigerator and our wish was granted. We will definitely stay here again when in need of a room in Indiana, PA.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jaythereviewer NOT RECOMMENDED
This hotel was out of date. The furniture was smashed in, the carpet in the hallway and room had several stains, the internet did not work, the room smelled of mildew, the A/C unit smelled horrible when tried to turn on the heat so I had to sleep in a very cold and uncomfortable temperature. The customer service agent at the front desk was a pleasure to speak with as he was very friendly. Due to the above issues, however, I can no longer stay at this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jaythereviewer Just POOR!
Where do I begin...dirty floor not only outside my room, but also in the bedroom. Mildew smell as you walk into the room, dusty lamps and end tables, all the sockets falling out of walls throughout, chase sunken in, and temperature as cold as Iceland! I tried to turn on the heat but it smelled horrible like burning cardboard. The only reason I did not leave was because I was so tired. However, not tired OR trusting enough of the cleanliness to change my clothes. I spoke about my experience with colleagues and they all said they'd never stay at this chain or location ever due to my commentary. I tried to explain that this experience was my own and that they may have a different outcome, but they did not budge on their opinion based on the description of my stay. I cannot in good faith tell ANYONE to stay at this location. The desk clerk was very friendly and professional, however, that's where the pleasantries ceased. Unfortunately, I can no longer stay at this brand hotel ever again. I must admit, the shower was hot but the towels were so old not only did they smell, but also were almost as hard as brillo pads. I cannot speak to the entire facility but, the wing where I stayed and the entrance need a complete remodel as everything from entrance to furniture seem outdated, stale and dingy. The bed was comfortable but, I wonder was that because I was so tired or because it actually was comfortable. I am appreciative that I had a reservation that kept me sheltered from the outside, but I am disappointed that I was unable to truly find comfort in my stay.

I have stayed here a lot over the past 7 years and it seem to me the building is deteriorating over the years. The menu in the restaurant has not changed much over that period and food quality seems to have gone down hill.

I only had one setback...There was a forklift working outside of my room that was a little noisey, and a lot of the parking spaces were barricaded off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Megs23 Loud room and brown recluses
The inside rooms are very loud especially when they place you next to the pool pump house and they couldn't rearrange somethings so my 30 DAY stay was a bit more conducive for a day sleeper. I killed two fiddle back spiders when I arrived and found another in my shower as a morning surprise.

I travel weekly for business and am always looking for a one stop location to stay (dinning, bar, fitness center) with a freindly staff and clean. Even though at my time of stay they were remodeling I found the facility to be clean and you could hardly tell anything was going on. I also really enjoyed as I enter the facility they were having a BBQ for there guest. For those of us that travel the smell of a BBQ is relaxing and a reminder of the weekend to come. My room was extremely clean. The only complaint I would have is the pillows, but then I normally bring my own because I'm very picky about thtat... I would recommend this Holliday Inn to traveiling families and business travels as myself. Thank you to the staff of the Indiana, PA Holiday Inn for a very relaxing stay!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by walkonby not great experience
Hallway were over 100 degrees with extension cords to fans all over. Know repairs are under way but for how long!!! Long term customers for companies during the week use the back parking lot for beer and pizza and music. As well they prefer to use the parking lot as washroom rather than go inside to their room. Intimidating to park back there with all of them hanging around in their well worn work attire.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bigtimetraveler My experience was below expectations
I was conducting a workshop as well as sleeping at the hotel. The first sign of dissatisfaction came the morning of my workshop. I waited more than 45 minutes, and made at least three requests, for someone to come and help with moving excess tables out of the room.
The banquet manager came later to talk with me and stated the room was set to the specifications requested. I stated a couple of times my frustration was with the wait time. I understood staff was busy, however, assistance was needed and I felt ignored.
Second incidence, and the one that prompted me to answer review request, came at lunch. After coming back from being gone about 50 minutes, I noticed the water had not been refreshed. I requested from the front desk to have it done. We went the remainder of the day without fresh water.
Before leaving the property, I spoke with the same manager and expressed my displeasure in their lack of customer attention. She stated they came to my meeting room to refresh but the door was closed and they didn't want to disturb us. I asked why didn't it get refreshed while we were out of the room during lunch. She did not have an answer.
I left with memories of a bad experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by buchsen72 heat in hallway is unbearable
The room itself was fine, comfortable, clean. We slept well, enjoyed the pool, and enjoyed the room service. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food delivery was very prompt.
The issue we had was with getting to the room. There is no elevator, so we had to climb the steps with all our belongings and our 2 young children in extremely hot temperatures. There seems to be no ventilation in the hallways, other than what is blowing back in from the AC exhaust. ENTIRELY too hot; even for a few moments it just took my breath away.
Upon first glance from the exterior of the hotel, we definitely raised a red flag. Climbing the steps in what felt like over 100 degree heat added to the issue. The hallways and entrances were terribly hot and the room numbering system was confusing. I understand that there is some remodeling going on, and the AC units and extension cords are visible from the outside. Even so, there must be a way to reduce the heat in the hallways. I felt like I was standing in the middle of Nevada. This hotel seems to have been an outdoor one converted to an indoor one, and it's just not working as I imagine it was planned.
Unless the heat issue were immediately remedied, I would not recommend staying at this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kat6 look elsewhere
this is an old hotel from the 1970's that is in dire need of upgrading. For the amount that is charged for a stay here you can stay at other area hotels that are much much nicer. Don't waste your money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MM_in_DMV Motel converted poorly to a hotel
This is plainly a cookie cutter mid-20th-century motel building where some amateur contractor was allowed to modify it into a hotel!
There's a roof that now connects the buildings together and traps all of the heat from the rooms' window air conditioners, whose exhausts now vent into the common area. It's a laughably bad design, but you won't be laughing about how sweaty you get if you spend any time outside your room. I am not exaggerating to say it was over 90F at night (July).
There are second floor rooms but NO elevators. Watch out for elderly or disabled guests who may have issues here.
While I can't say the specific rate we paid, it was appropriate for a Hotel, not a Motel. Especially not in a rural area. The hotel staff was friendly, the food was fine, the wifi was fast and free...but I will never be staying here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junior6 No Air conditioning
We stayed with a large group of family members recently and was shocked to discover the 2nd floor hallways had no air conditioning. Also, there is no elevator to the 2nd floor. The temperature in the halls felt like 100 degrees. Nothing was done to correct it. This we were told was not a new problem and it seems nothing will be done to correct it. Very uncomfortable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jessjean32 Good value for Money, but not the best
No elevators, so if you can't go up stairs make sure you request first floor. I stayed on the second floor and it was so HOT in the hallways! But the room was cool; temperature is easily maintained by your room air conditioner. The food in the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. MOST of the staff was friendly and accommodating... but there is always that one person who is miserable... which I had the pleasure of dealing with upon check-in.

The handicap accessibility is poorly designed. Why would they put a room with walk - in shower for wheelchair next to the exit that has 5 steps up and 5 steps down!!!! They exit that we had to use was at opposite end of hall and had no handicap parking at that exit. The carpeting was so dirty that my 10 month old granddaughter's knees were BLACK after crawling across the floor. When you flushed the toilet the bathroom smelled like a sewer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by appleknocker19 Comfortable bed,
Room was great when we got to it.
Initially given smoking room despite reservations 2 months prior for non smoking.
After much wrangling with night attendant I was given another room even though she initially told me they were booked full.
Non smoking room was great on inside courtyard with view of pool and inside gardens.
Slept great and morning attendant granted us a late checkout so my wife and kids could use the pool while I was at a meeting for the day.
