This is such a nice hotel and it has such great features! I almost don't want to share the quality because then there will be more people who discover it. But I feel, to be honest, I must let others know this is a great place!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MotherLYearth Amazing experience!
We stayed at this hotel for the convenience to Seven Springs because we had planned a few days of snowboarding. The hotel was very easy to find and right off the turnpike. Right away we were greeted when we arrived and the stay only got getter after that. They upgraded us to a suite and let us keep our snowboards and equipment in our room. When we came down for breakfast the next morning, there was plenty of space to eat and the food was delicious. The breakfast area looks onto the pool area that was beautiful. I like how the breakfast area had sofas and the tv so that if you wanted to read or relax out of your room, there was a warm, cozy spot available. When we needed recommendations for places to eat, the front desk provided us with a bevy of choices by handing us a multi-page list of choices, all of which were wonderful. Seven Springs was only about 8 miles away from the hotel and was easy to find. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to come back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack527 Good accommodations
I called ahead only 2 hours before my rather late arrival, and the service from the front desk was excellent. I only gave my name and my IHG Club number, and when I arrived, my room was ready, my check-in complete and correct, with my usual veteran discounts, etc.
The room was comfortable and already warmed up on this very cold night. The bed was great and I got a good night;s sleep.
The next morning, breadkfast was ready at 6:30, and I was on my way.
Thanks very much. I will be back.

The front-desk staff was very friendly and helpful at check-in. We were provided with directions to various locations, as well as recommendations of restaurants. The breakfast staff was also very helpful, and continued to restock breakfast items all morning.
Great lodging option for 7 Springs Resort!

We've stayed here the last 2 years for our annual Seven Springs ski trip. The hotel is always clean, the staff is very friendly and the breakfast is fantastic! It's a great value!
This time we stayed in a king bed room but I would also highly recommend the room with a king bed and a jacuzzi!

I selected this hotel based on the amenities and lodge-like atmosphere it provided. The hotel was clean, and staff seemed courteous. We enjoyed our short (15min) drive to the slopes and hope to return again soon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike2014 I really like this hotel
This hotel is a favorite hotel of mine. Everything comes together: price point, the nice pool, the quality of the rooms and the niceness of the folks at the front desk. Plenty of parking and close to the ski resorts. The only minus is the quality of the breakfast specifically the eggs and sausage which aren't that good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hockeymom8080 Not blow away.Just OK
The staff was not very friendly and acted like we were bothering them when asking for recommendations for dinner. The standard room that I booked was not available so I had to stay in a suite that was $40.00 more per night. The breakfast was OK but the pancake machine was broken. This was my least favorite Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlene + Jan Wonderful!!
We were on our way to Chicago for a memorial service when it started to snow, we took exit 91 off the PA turnpike for the Holiday Inn Express. From the second we walked in our experience was excellent, friendly service, comfortable beds to a warm breakfast. When we left Chicago to come home we could of made it home (12hr drive) but decided to go back and enjoy another night and only leaving us 3 1/2 hours to drive the next day. Once again we couldn't get over how wonderful everything was. We usually drive straight through but after this experience we agreed from now on we'll stop and enjoy another stay at the Holiday Inn Express off exit 91.
Thank you for making a difficult time in our lives more enjoyable!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeK101 Best hotel stay for the price
I was really surprised with this place. Holiday Express is cheap and usual decent but this one blew everyone away. The hotel is actually modeled for the area (mountain lodge) rather than your typical hotel look. Cookies at the reception desk. Pool and hot tub indoor which felt great after a day of skiing. Staff was very helpful when we wanted to order food. Provide menus and phone numbers of multiple places. Breakfast was better than any continental I've experienced. Definitely a positive stay and would love to visit again.
Only con is that it is probably 15 minutes from 7 Springs and I believe they claim 10 minutes. Still a short and easy drive with great scenery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GCSkier Comfortable, clean and convenient to skiing.
My wife and I stayed here last weekend for a few days of skiing at Seven Springs and Hidden Valley resorts. This hotel was very convenient. Easy to get to, only a few miles from both ski resorts. The hotel seems (must be?) almost brand new. Very nice and somewhat unique decor, especially for a chain-type hotel. Very well kept by a friendly and helpful staff. Spotless rooms and common areas. Good free breakfast. We tried a "queen special" room, which included a nice soaking/jacuzzi tub right in the room (in addition to a regular tub/shower combo in the bathroom). The private, jetted tub was GREAT after a day on the slopes. Well worth the extra few dollars. We also liked the fridge and microwave in the room for snacks and beverages that we brought along. Obviously the location makes it a little less convenient than staying in a lodge or condo right at the resort(s), but still a great alternative if you want to save a few dollars and still have a really nice room. Very good value, we will definitely stay there again if/when we go back to the Donegal/Seven Springs/Falling Water area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lena02 Location made It!
My boyfriend and I stayed here on a Monday night after a day of skiing for holiday. The décor is suiting to a mountain resort. The fireplace and stone mantel was placed in front of two big chairs. We didn’t swim but the pool area was also themed with large wooden beams and had a mountain feel to it. We live in Pittsburgh so I appreciated the furnishings because it made me feel like I traveled further than just 50 minutes from home. The hotel itself is about 10 – 15 minutes from seven springs and not even a minute from the turnpike which was perfect. There were several ski rental and ski lift passes along the road. There were also several bars, pizza places, and fast food venues along the road. The staff was super helpful in recommending where to eat on a non-weekend stay.
We booked the Jacuzzi room and we were definitely pleased with the Jacuzzi. The hot water never ran out and it was decent sized considering my boyfriend is a bigger man. We were disappointed with the size of the room. It had higher ceiling but was pretty narrow. We felt like there was no breathing room. There wasn’t any water in the fridge which was inconvenient. We weren’t particularly fond of the continental breakfast either, granted it was free; we still ate about an hour after eating there. most importantly, the place was clean. I wouldn’t mind staying here again at all but I will probably try out something different next time just to mix it up. All-in-all, it’s an affordable place for ski season the week of New Years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete 11 Helpful & friendly employees=lasting reputation
The management and staff of the Donegal Holiday Inn Express are to be commended for their professional work and friendly attitude toward all of the guests. The attention to detail displayed by the house-cleaning folks and the kitchen staff preparing the morning breakfast are worthy of special mention as well. The entire team undoubtedly contributes to the quality reputation of your hotel line. I have no reservations regarding another stay in any of your other facilites based on my experience in Donegal, Pa.

We stayed here for two nights while we went skiing at Seven Springs. This is a great location, off exit 91. There is a gas station and McDonalds near by. You are only about 7 or 8 miles from Seven Springs. Seems like a newer property. The rooms are great, we got upgraded to a suite. Two queen beds and the sofa turns into a bed. The room also has a mini refrigerator and a microwave. The complimentary breakfast was good (it was complimentary - enough to get you started for the day). Got free cookies at check in. We were very pleased and have deiced to come to Seven Springs for next few years and stay at this property. Very reasonably priced and great service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reverend One of my favorites
I travel throughout the US and Canada for business. This is a HIE that sets itself apart from the rest.
This was my second stay here. The interior of the hotel is unique until you get to your room. Once in the room you get the standard HIE rooms. Comfortable and familiar. This hotel has been upgraded to the more modern room look as well. The room, lobby, etc. were all clean and well kept. The overall stay was great.
The only downsides to this is that is the typical HIE breakfast (meh) and the walls were a little thin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WMB1 Holiday Inn done right
I have stayed in Holiday Inns from Massachusetts to Florida and as far west as Arizona. The service has always been more than satisfactory and my stays pleasant. However, the Holiday Inn Donegal has set the benchmark against which all other Holiday Inns should be measured. The front desk staff is courteous, professional, personable, and attentive to guests needs. The same must also be said for housekeeping staff and other support staff. All are consistently professional, courteous, attentive and diligent in performing their responsibilities. The quality and appearance of the physical plant and the quality of the food service reflect this.
Kudos to a hotel and staff that make you feel welcome from the time you arrive until you leave. Their approach to customers make you want to come back. We know we will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mozi Tranquil and refreshing
This was my second trip to the area in a month. We arrived late in the evening for check-in and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was exceptionally clean and was at a comfortable temperature upon entrance. The bed had pillows of select comfort levels (soft and firm) and blankets which provided warmth and softness. The shower did not run out of hot water for those who take long showers of if you have a large group. The breakfast included hot items such as scrambled eggs, omelets, bacon, and even a pancake maker which was mess free just press a button. The atmosphere is so quiet and peaceful and no interruptions from any traffic at all could be heard. The hotel is not on a loud road by any means.
The location is not far from Pittsburgh (1 hour away) or Johnstown which are fun places to visit for leisure or history.

Stayed here in September while attending a convention at Seven Springs. Great location!! First night was great!! Second night became very loud around midnight and continued for several hours.. Very rude wedding quests slamming doors, yelling from one hall to the other. My room was next to the vending machines which was very loud coming through my walls.They must have emptied the machines as much as they used them. Hotel staff should have taken charge and quieted crowd done. Next time will request room away from lobbey and vending machines.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrMajestic Very Nice Motel
We were just passing through on our way to Indiana. We checked in @ 11:00pm and checked out @ 8:00am. The room was very clean and the breakfast was hot and fresh. The only problem I had was trying to make a reservation using my IHG members points. I called the members hot line and was told there would be a 15min hold time. When you're traveling late at night, you don't want to be on hold for 15min. or more. I was also told by the clerk at the motel that they couldn't process my reservation using my members points. I think that the clerks should have the authority to take reservations using members points. Other than that, I am very pleased with my IHG membership. Our stay in Kendallville, Indiana was very nice also.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pet6 Bit unwelcoming
Nice room, all to familiar HI Express style. Breakfast pretty basic, usual HIE but not well presented and staff doing things by numbers.
First night a weekend and breakfast chaotic.
Only other comment is that both the desk and other staff were incredibly uncommunicative. Certainly didm"t promote the place or make you want to come back.
Didn't receive the usual bill under the door, and on check out, was just told "all set" without looking at anything! By then we were used to being ignored so just left.
So apart from the people thing, this is your usual HI Express product and probably the nearest to Falling Water if thats what you re up to.
Final warning, we had two encounters with cars driving with no lights in the dark near the hotel….local game?? Take care.
