Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diane12345 Really great place to stay
This hotel has a very cute mountain lodge theme which is carried throughout the hotel. The rooms were very clean and spacious. My only " complaints " would be that the room needed more lighting and that there were no armchairs or comfortable chairs to relax in. The only chairs were stiff desk chairs.
The staff were extremely friendly. The indoor pool was a fun surprise. Overall , we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return !

to find a little gem. It's a little odd for two city girls to meet the eyes of animals recently treated by a taxidermist but otherwise, this hotel is decorated in a welcoming quaint and cozy cabin feel.
We'd only planned the single night but will definitely come back and bring family and friends to the area. Fallingwater is only minutes away: we had no problem getting there in about 15 minutes for our 8:30 tour - even after breakfast!
The town seemed a little sketchy but the hotel is clean, comfortable and cozy with large suites that let you really relax.

This Holiday Inn Express has great decor - very fitting for the area. Our room and all public areas were well maintained and very clean.
The rooms facing away from the highway have super views.
Breakfast was awesome - lots of choices and everything was freshly made.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coll we were the guests of the day and got upgrade!!
The bed and sheets were so comfortable. Love the pool, hot tub and snack machines. Loved my upgrade of breakfast in bed and king bed! The ONLY thing I do not like about the Holiday Inn Express' is the COFFEE. Yuk! Either get much much better coffee of offer flavored creamers to cover up bad taste. I am a coffee person big time! Other then that it was PERFECT. Id recommend to anyone and I will return #if the coffee improves#!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by moh06 Great service, great location, beautiful room
We have stayed here twice while making visits to Fallingwater which is nearby. The front office staff is very friendly very welcoming and doesn't hesitate to answer questions about the surrounding area. A great place to stay and convenient stop when traveling the tollway.
Will definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rollo66 A great option
We love stopping at the Donegal Holiday Inn Express. It is an excellent stop off of the PA Turnpike. The rooms - service and breakfasts are excellent.
We always time our trip so we get in for dinner. There is a terrific family restrauant only a few miles west - Brady's. It adds to our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sorrynicknameselections Nice Hotel - Would stay again
The only problem is that the hotel is a bit noisy - slamming room doors can be disturbing if you are trying to sleep in. Otherwise, no problems. Staff were wonderful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kris276 Best place!!
We just stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while attending idlewild and the Pittsburgh zoo! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and the pool and hot tub were a blast. The hotel made us feel at home with its rustic feel and wonderful continental breakfast. Would not have changed a thing about this hotel., on the second night they upgraded us for free. We will definitely be back!

I gave top ratings to this hotel as it exceeded all my expectations. Setting is nice. Staff is courteous and congenial. Room was immaculate. Breakfast bar had a varied menu each day, and there were attendants present to lend assistance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rotorfinn Clean, comfortable, away from Turnpike noise, fine breakfast!
Previous reviews helped me to decide to stay here because it was 2/3 of the way from Michigan to DC, going to attend son's Air Force retirement. Unfortunately, I came down with a bad bronchitis attack and we returned home the next day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TrailerMike Memorable? Yes. But not for a good reason.
I had made my reservation as always, from the mobile app (kudos!).
After a long day on the road and arriving to no great fanfare but some brief banter between the desk clerks, I received my key cards.
Up to my room on the 3rd floor looking forward to some relaxation, I activated the lock, flipped the door lever and backed into the room while shepherding my luggage.
The surprises occurred in this order:
1. The room was lit brightly with daylight. Hmmm, that never happens.
2. As I swung into the room my eye caught a partially empty water bottle by the lounge chair.
3. My head on a swivel I saw a woman's open luggage on the bed and a used but folded hand towel over the sink edge.
I waited for the shriek that never came. Thank goodness! She wasn't there. Couold you imagine how it could have gone???
Back to the lobby to explain what I'd witnessed. Apologies ensued, then a new room assignment. Up to the 3rd floor once again where - TADA - neither key card would activate the door to the new room.
Back down to the desk again, luggage still in tow through all of this, where I received a feeble apology and a new set of cards. They worked - FINALLY.
I like the chain for the usually consistent service and room quality. Didn't happen this time. The disappointment was the lack of an offer of compensation for their error - not even a discount to a local restaurant or an extra bottle of water.
It was probably an anomaly. Let's hope so.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dardar28 This is a GREAT hotel!
This hotel was the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. As soon as we walked in, my 5 year old daughter exclaimed "this place is beautiful!!" My kids loved the "outdoor" theme, my son wants to buy the place and move in! They loved the pool area. The beds were very comfortable. The continental breakfast was by far the best I've ever had. It was actually a full, hardy breakfast- and the food was fantastic! The kids loved the pancake making machine! Overall, this hotel had everything we needed, at a very reasonable price!

I must say that this was one of the best hotel stay i've had since being a gold member. The staff was extremely friendly and even made me the ' guest of the day." This hotel was extremely clean! I also remember needing to wash my clothes although there was no washing facility. The overnight girl offered to wash them for me! Again, this property blew my mind! GREAT JOB!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jerseypeeps Great Experience!
On our road trip out to Missouri and back to NJ, this was our last stop. I have to say that this was the best stay out of all and a perfect way to end our vacation. Upon entering the hotel, the beautiful lodge decor "wowed" us. Warm cookies were at the check in counter (yum) and I was surprised by being given the honor of "guest of the day". We were upgraded to a suite with complimentary breakfast room service. We opted instead to go downstairs for breakfast before our departure though. The buffet
was great, complete with warm cinnamon buns. Enough variety for anyone. Room was crystal clean and staff was great. Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thebrasilian Good Choice for this Part of Pennsylvania
For anyone wanting to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" and "Kentuck Knob" projects, as well as the "Laurel Highlands," the Holiday Inn Express / Donegal (PA) is very convenient and very nice. It has all the traveler amenities one would expect, and is highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by D2964 Fun decor, staff, and all over experience
What a great place you have here in Donegal. All other hotels should take a page from your play book. From the front desk to the cleaning service were warm and friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer. We were especially taken with the "hunting lodge" decor. Extremely clean and comfortable. The pool was clean. Nice of them to give my husband and me EACH a priority bag of goodies. Plus the price was the best. Especially after looking at New Stanton and Benteyville....very bad. Benteyville gave us one bottle of water as the priority gift...cheap.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Calimour Headed for Fallingwater
My friend and I were looking for a place to stay to be fairly short drive from Fallingwater. I've had good experiences with previous holiday in express sites, so we booked in Donegal. We were surprised to walk in and see the decor was an outdoorsman theme, yet somehow stylish. Jessica checked us in and she was incredible. She could not have been more accommodating during our stay. One thing of note is that they have a guest of the day program. During our visit, I was the guest of the day. The perks included breakfast served to your room, points on your priority club account, but most importantly, our room was upgraded to a suite. The suite was spacious, nicely organized, and very clean. The trip to Fallingwater took about half an hour, which was exactly what Jessica told us when we checked in. I would stay here again in a minute if I was going to attraction in that area.

The stay at this brand new hotel was refreshing to say the least! The whole experience from the room being comfortable, clean and relaxing, to the professional staff and the wonderful "free" breakfast made our stay great! It was a nice and quiet stay, just the way we like it! I would definitely recommend Donegal's Holiday Inn Express to anyone.

My Husband, son and myself recently stayed at the Donegal Holiday Inn Express and our experience was excellent. The staff was so friendly and could not be more helpful. Special thanks to Hailey at the Front Desk she really went above and beyond every time we returned to the hotel from being out we were greated with a smile. Thanks for the great stay. Would definitely stay here again should we be in the area. Thanks

Clean water, quiet night, super food close by. Convenient to Seven Springs skiing which means I'll be back. Thanks HI X for doing it right!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by phoneboy A Step Above the Typical Holiday Inn Express
The hotel is very nice with some nice decorative touches. There seemed to be an issue with the hotel's mechanicals on the roof when we were there. We were upgraded to a nice room, but it was very noisy and disrupted our sleep.
The front desk staff are generally nice, but not too helpful or creative when solving guest complaints.
There seems to be an issue with electrical surges and power outages as well.
The breakfast variety and dining area is excellent.
Once the mechanical issues of this hotel are solved, it will earn my highest rating.
