Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by traveler1492 Two Night stay in July 2014
Room was very clean as well as the bathroom. Room was very small for two beds - quite cramped for two adults and two children. Bathroom was very small. Internet connection was awful to non-existent. Continental breakfast was excellent - probably one of the best I have seen offered to similar hotels. A/C in room was cold but very loud and made a lot noise when it came on.

We decided to stay at this hotel because our son and his family live in Johnstown and we wanted to visit. The location is very close to them. We were pleased with the overall experience. The room was clean the bed was comfortable. The free breakfast was very good and there were a lot of choices. Will stay at this hotel in the future.

I have stayed at the JHIE for several years. The staff is always professional and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast area is amazing. Mary does a wonderful job keeping it stocked and clean. I have never had a bad experience while staying there.
I have stayed at many HIE. This one is one of the best!! Looking forward to staying again. Jennifer is to be commended for they way she handles customers and staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BaseballMom65 Not a great experience
We drove 6 hours for a baseball tournament. We never had hot water to shower with. The room was fairly clean, we have had cleaner rooms at other hotels. Another team stayed at the same hotel and at 1:50am they started running around and slamming doors the staff did not do enough to get them quiet. At one point when the staff was knocking at the door and they wouldnt open up, they where just going to walk away. I came out of my room and said you need to stay here until they open that door. When they finally did open up the boy was covered head to toe in saving cream and feathers from the pillow they cut open. All the staffer did was say, please keep quiet and walked away. After that when they did not quiet down the staff just told me there was nothing they could do about it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Cold Shower and No water pressure
I only stayed one night but the shower was cold and there was no water pressure. The staff was friendly and the bed was clean and comfortable. The only issue I had was the shower because this is an important part of my stays. I was in Room 333.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kare12 Beware of the Jacuzzi room
Was given an upgrade to a Jacuzzi room. Walked in and found the couch and refrigerator setting in the middle of the room. Carpet was somewhat wet. Maintenance man came down to move furniture back and said the prior guests had made a mess with the Jacuzzi. Discovered, unfortunately at midnight that evening, that the Jacuzzi was malfunctioning and turned itself on when the water was partially filled in the tub. Then I couldn't get it to turn off right away. What a mess!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamesE1958 Beautiful Hotel Location and Service
This location was very scenic, with mountains and valleys that were very soothing to look at. The hotel it self was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was excellent and tended promptly to every request. I saw a spirit of team work. On several occasions I had to go to my job before the breakfast area was open. The food preparer actual fixed me a little package with oat meal and bananas for me to have for breakfast. That was very nice and unsolicited...I would definitely stay there again.

Room is comfortable and clean with plenty of space for a hotel room. The TV is slow to react to channel changes and is kinda small (in my opinion) I stay here once a month, really good value for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rotgin Clean rooms and friendly staff
We chose this hotel on the recommendation of a friend who had previously stayed here. We were not disappointed. The hotel was not fancy but it was clean and the staff was very friendly. It was conveniently located with shopping and dining close by. The free breakfast was good with a nice variety of choices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonBeth Clean and Comfortable
We have been staying at this hotel periodically since 2011. The rooms have been clean and comfortable. However, a minor dislike has cropped up the last couple of stays and that is the TV channel availability. We used to be able to watch GSN but that channel has been dropped from channel list and this last time we stayed, WJAC which is the local NBC channel was not available even though it showed on the list of channels in the room. So, if you want to watch NBC you will have to stay at a different hotel.

It's obvious IHG bought an old property and just hung a Holiday Inn Express sign on it. That's about the only thing at this property that remotely resembles a Holiday Inn Express. Not what I expected at all! Not returning if I can help it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jdimaio nice place
It was a nice place to stay but the price seemed to be a bit high. It was a little older place and I had just stayed at a much newer place for quite a bit less. Night staff was excellent, morning staff didn't seem as upbeat.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amypat Bed Comfort/Room Temperature
I believe we stayed in room 231. The temp. on the air-conditioner read 62, but it was very warm in the room.
The bed was too soft.
The hotel was noisy in the AM. At 8Am housekeeping was knocking on door and loudly announcing housekeeping. The overhead noise was very loud also.

But like 90% of the HI's I have stayed at. Three pieces of equipment, shoved into a small room with a full wall mirror on one side to make the room look bigger.

I was the victim of a fire and was in need of a hotel stay. The staff (especially Kaylee, front desk) was extremely caring and kind. My room was clean and comfortable. I had an eight-day stay, and it did not seem as if I was "away from home" due to my overall experience.

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.
