Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JD2014 Holiday stay review
Stayed here for 6 nights (7 days), my first trip to this location.
I've stayed at other Holiday Inns and am an IHG member for HI's stellar service and breakfasts. I was not disappointed in either of these at this locale.
I feel like my "complaints" were largely because of age of heater and location (hotel and/or room, not sure).
Specifically, the heater was really old (or I am really old, and this is the latest thing). It was a temperature setting and 4 settings (off, heat, cold, standby). I put it at a comfortable temperature but to my dismay found that the thing ran constantly which not only made for a VERY dry night but also when it got above the set temprature the heater turned to AC.
Personally, I find that being in fluxuating temperatures (hot then cold) tends to make me ill, though I did not get so over this trip, thank goodness.
Most of the nights, despite the bitter PA cold, we kept the heater off because of the above. However, we found that the heater running was actually blocking out residual hotel noise as well as outside noise of plow and (trash?) trucks stationed next door. I am not a super sensitive sleeper but I was woken up 3/6 nights by trucks (at least once) and my SO had trouble sleeping because of the noise.
Both me and my SO recognize that the location of the hotel won't change and thus the noise probably won't.
Thusly I wouldn't recommend this hotel but I also wouldn't recommend against it either.
Finally, I got the breakfast I desired tho twice (out of four breakfasts) I heard the chef saying by the time she cooked more the buffet would be over, which is true tho it could have made for a terrible experience for anyone coming late to breakfast. I feel like the food control could be a little better. I did hear her say as well it was an unexpected number of people.
That is a minor minor issue and didn't actually affect me but may be something to looking into considering improving.
None of the above may be experienced by folks staying for a single night (as I expect most HI-Express residents are) so FYI. I hope this information helps someone out there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DonBeth Almost what one would expect from HI Express
Very comfortable bed, decent internet speed, clean room. Only complaint is that room did not have a refrigerator. Only way to keep my wife's med's "refrigerated" was to wrap the bottle in a washcloth (to keep it from freezing) and put it in the ice bucket. To my knowledge this is the only HI Express that we have stayed in that had rooms without refrigerators.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MommaSue Wonderful Staff - Great stay...Lots to see!
We were delighted with our stay at Johnstown - The staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and never failed to greet us in the hall or as we went in or out. It was a quiet place to be when we wanted to sleep and fresh fruit in our room was a nice touch. We appreciated the thoughtfulness of the housing staff. We also enjoyed all the museums and National Parks nearby - a memorable stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kcgreene Everything was wonderful
This was our second time staying at this hotel and my husband and I had a wonderful stay. The breakfast was awesome with a nice selection and the employee serving it was pleasant and made sure nothing got empty and she kept the area spotless. The front desk girls were also friendly and helpful. I thought it was a nice treat to receive water and snacks at check in. The room was clean and the temperature was comfy.
When we are back near Johnstown we will surely be staying here again
