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.

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

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michaelh77 Promise Never Received
I had a reward night at this location. The night clerk was very uninterested in her job. More interested in when she was getting off work.
She took my credit card for incidentals, but charged the room to my bill.
There were other problems, too.
I talked with the day manager about these, and she was very apologetic, and promised me 2000 points in my Priority Club.
It has been a month now and never came.

The Holiday Inn Express is my go-to hotel when visiting family in Johnstown. It is dog-friendly, it has onsite fitness, free breakfast with healthy options (fresh fruits, yogurts, oatmeal), and plenty of proteins, too (eggs, sausage, milk, etc). Great cable channels and free wi-fi. Free coffee and tea service all day, snacks in the afternoon, and fridge and microwave in the room for late-night needs...it really is all that I need for a one or two night stay. It's a perfect mid-level hotel, delivering great customer service, Johnstown friendliness, and a cozy night's sleep. Close to shopping and restaurants, too.

When I make my annual visit to my old home town, I always stay at Holiday Inn Express and, as usual, was treated wonderfully by the helpful and friendly staff. The room is always very clean, the noise level is minimal, and the breakfast fantastic. (Love the pancake machine!) Thank you for making my stay so relaxing and enjoyable and I can't wait until next year!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonBeth Nice Hotel
We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions, using it as our base when we are in town visiting relatives. The staff has always been friendly and ouitgoing. We do get dismayed sometimes at the cost since the HIE in Somerset is newer and normally cheaper. This last visit we became somewhat concerned about the cleaning staff. We found a man's shirt laying on the bathroom floor and there was no laundry bag in the closet. It appears that maybe the cleaning staff needs some additional instructions or maybe someone should be making checks. I will say that this is the first time we have encountered the cleaning problem so it remains to be seen if it is an on going problem or just a fluke.

I recently brought my elderly Mother to the area for a sad family occasion. It had been many years since she had seen Ebensburg or Johnstown. Everyone at the hotel was pleasant, quick to offer aide, and always interested in our welfare.
The facilities were immaculate and the breakfast very satisfying.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Njw1 Rooms need an update
The bathroom was small and had no counter space for 2 people. Maybe thought should be given to a shelf under the counter top. The bathroom was very outdated. Could use a facelift.
The king size bed was good. The furniture in the sitting area of the room is very stiff and uncomfortable.
The hotel was clean and the breakfast was adequate.
