Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjsct Nice experience
Very nice facility. Convenient to PA Turnpike and the towns of Irwin and McKeesport. Quiet location away from the highway.
Staff friendly and efficient and the rooms were very comfortable.

Very clean; comfortable bed; staff very friendly; YUMMY cookies put out in afternoon; quiet except for the usual hallway noises of doors slamming and shouts of "housekeeping" that I find to be common in most places; breakfast okay; price of room seems a bit high but it is the only place decent to stay in Irwin! And yes, awkward to drive to!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michaelh77 I Want To Like This Hotel, but difficult
I really want to like this hotel, because it is convenient for me and I am a Platinum Priority Club member. Believe it is managed poorly and very loose. Some problems this stay:
Bugs in the tub
Bed lamp not working
Asked for wake up call.....never called.
Had to change room due to smell
Desk help in sweatshirt and jeans
Seemingly indifferent to my arrival
Not a good sleep
Not asked about upgrade
Clock was one hour fast in room
Towels smelled like smoke
Crack very large under the door
However, the internet is great here, breakfast is good, but the rest of the stay was a test for the senses.

I had a very comfortable stay at your hotel and will definitely stay there again. I just wish that you had a pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by guest54554111 Quiet Location With Plenty of Shops/Restaurants Nearby
Nice location, really enjoyed a family restaurant nearby called Teddy's (great food). Breakfast had lots of choices. Front desk staff was not friendly, had an attitude every time we walked by. Maintenance also came by our room before we had checked out, but apologized once they realized we were not ready yet.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tired52 Inconvienent Access
This Motel has very inconvenient access if you want to do anything locally. Directions are not provided at turnpike exit, and when you make the wrong choice 2 U-turns are required to find the place.
Its driveway is immediately adjacent to the turnpike entrance ramp, and you can easily be confused and find yourself back on the road! Convenient when you leave, but otherwise difficult.
We were also given a non-smoking room that had previously been smoking-the putrid smell prevented a good sleep.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cannon245 Very small rooms
In most every way the hotel was excellent except for the size of the room and bathroom. They were so small that I would rather not stay there again. This is too bad since all else was great about the hotel

Recently i had to fly to Pittsburgh to enjoy my best friends wedding & i stayed in this hotel. The stay was AMAZING, the room was very comfortable, clean, big and nice!

If i had the opportunity to visit again Pittsburgh i would stay here again ;) nice job guys ! Thank u for everything!

My wife and I traveled for about two weeks and stayed in different hotels and facilities. Some were even rated five stars. Our stay here was as nice and in some cases better than the five star recommendations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DebC7 Comfortable, clean, great service
We have stayed here several times when visiting relatives in the
area and have always found it to be clean and comfortable with
knowledgeable and friendly employees. Good selection of foods/beverages in complimentary breakfast. Small but adequate fitness room. Complimentary fresh cookies in late afternoon/early evening. Great accomodations for price. Right next to PA Turnpike entrance, so convenient for travel.

We were traveling and decided to stop here for the night. We booked the room through Priority Club while still on the road. We arrived around 11:00pm and were cheerfully greeted. The desk clerk asked if we want an upgrade. Of course we said sure and she put us in the Bridal Suite. Very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Picohio7 Great service - awesome breakfast buffet!
I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express. This is the second time I've stayed here for family visits. We were treated with great courtesy; the room was clean, did NOT smell like cigarette smoke, and everything was really attractive. In the morning, what a great surprise -- continental breakfast included everything you could want for a good, hearty breakfast. Even the kids found something to enjoy. Thank you so much for an enjoyable stay.
Only 1 challenge -- getting into the hotel from the highway -- it's a one way divided highway, and somewhat difficult to navigate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ed71 Very clean room and very friendly atmosphere
We were very pleased with our stay for one night. The staff were very personable and friendly. By staying at the Holiday Inn we knew what to expect from the breakfast selection. The pancake making device made them fresh, tasty and it was very easy to use. Thanks to all the staff for an enjoyable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe22202 Friendly Staff
I have stayed here on many occasions over many years. The staff is always friendly. The rooms are quiet. I think Holiday inn Express hotels generally are an excellent value but this one has an exceptional breakfast bar. I'm rating it as 5 stars compared to other hotels in this price category and class. At the holidays, the staff decorates so it looks a bit more like "home" for travelers...including a huge tree in the lobby. The signage for the access road could be improved. The fitness room has been enlarged.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChampDoc recent stay
I have stayed here on numerous occasions. All previous visits I would rate 5 stars. This recent time it seemed a bit noisier than all the previous stays. There did seem to be some sort of convention going on and other guests were engaged in rather loud conversation in the hallway, often right outside our room. Also the room rate was higher than I recall in my previous stays. I trust that the 'noise' level this recent visit was an isolated occurrence; as I said all previous stays at this site were excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nitamarie Courteous staff and great service
My husband and I stayed here the weekend of February 23, 2013 because thats where the bride and groom had blocked out rooms. What a pleasant surprise. We travel alot and have stayed in many different hotels and this is definitly at the top of the list. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The staff could not have been more courteous or helpful. We would recommend the Holiday Inn Express Irwin to friend and family. The only tricky part is pulling out of the driveway, especially at night.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michaelh77 Reception Staff very POOR
Upon reception, the staff did not even stand up.....but sat the whole way through my entry process. Never acknowledged me as a Platinum Member. Never offered a bottle of water (although in previous stays they did), parking lot was near empty...yet, never offered a room upgrade.
Lazy staff, not knowledgeable or considerate of Customer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1wearytraveler Poor access
The hotel itself is up to par with any other Holiday Inn. The staff is friendly. The problem with this hotel is the location. There are two ways into the hotel. Both are a nightmare. One is at the top of the entrance ramp to the PA turnpike. You must cross all lanes of traffic to get to it. It is not marked or lit. The road itself is not in good condition. There are NO lights anywhere on this road. Once you actually find the road and turn on it, it's hard to tell if you are staying on the road or if you are going over the hill. The other entrance is at the bottom of the entrance ramp to the PA turnpike. Coming off of Rt 30 into the hotel is not that bad, except of course there is no lights on this road. Exiting the hotel from this point is another matter. You can only turn right onto Rt. 30. You must also cross the entrance ramp to the turnpike to get to Rt. 30. If I had known how dangerous it was to get to the hotel I would have never booked it. I won't stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chefsjeff Comfortable, Great Service, Considerate
Plusses: Excellent Service and Responses from front desk and other staff. Examples: We arrived early evening and found a couple stacks of current newspapers for our use, fresh baked cookies for us, and an ice machine that never ran out of ice. The rooms were quiet and ours was non-smoking with no residue or faint odors of abuse. There is a small refrigerator and microwave as well as tv and Internet access. They offer a sumptuous breakfast and it is ... extraordinary.
Minuses: leaving. we liked it there, it was just easy to be there. The fitness room just down the hall, just... easy. A smaller almost insignificant thing compared to all the great plusses, the bottom shelf of the bedside table had something sticky on it and on the cover of the Gideon. We will return there again and again. Access to is easy, from requires a bit of a drive over to Arona Rd but so what? it adds only a few minutes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GracieSue Need new bed
We have been staying at this property over the past 10 years. We find the location convenient although the entrance is a little confusing since it is next to the entrance for the Turnpike. I am hoping there are plans to improve the entrance in the future. The rooms are fine, although the bed in the room we were in could be upgraded. By the third night, it was very uncomfortable.
The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is standard fare.
. All in all, we will continue to stay there since it is convenient to where we need to be..
