Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler149 Unconnected and Stressful
I chose this hotel for the ability to have wired and wireless computer connection in the room so I could work while in town. The Computer connection worked once in 4 days for several hours. Then it caused my computer to continuously look for a connection and not allow any work to be completed until I disconnected from the hotel internet. Therefore one of my clients had to be informed that I could not do any work for 3.5 days. The IT department told me the hotel connection is 1 MBPS. That is so slow that even if I did connect, it would be massively inefficient. I have 30-40 MBPS in my home.
This hotel has very nice staff that are very efficient and helpful, but the hotel needs a huge face lift and needs to get into the times with more efficient and working internet connections.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grammie1 Very accomodating
We booked the room online with the pre-pay option to save money as we were staying for 7 days. The room was for two queen beds with refrigerator and microwave. When we arrived, the staff checked us in and we discovered we had a King bed and no microwave or refrigerator. When I called the desk they told me that the reservation came in as a standard room, so that is what they gave us. They were very helpful and were able to move us to a room with two queens. The next morning they delivered a fridge and microwave. The room was clean and quiet, maid service was great, the breakfast was outstanding! I would recommend and re-stay!

We always enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Express in West Mifflin, PA. The property is clean and modern. Rooms are comfortable with great mattresses and pillows. The free breakfast offers many delicious selections, and the staff is always very nice and hospitable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RoadWarrior2001 Poorly run hotel
We stayed at this hotel 8 months ago. The service and condition declined noticeably in a short while. We travel a fair amount and have a good basis of comparison of other hotels. The interesting thing was how many issues we had that where brought up in other reviews. Towel bar falling off the wall. (Hint: plastic anchors are not a good choice for this). After the first night with a thread bare inside out bottom sheet that would not stay put, we assumed it would be changed, it wasn't. After the second night we left a note to please provide a bottom sheet that stays on, no maid service at all. After a very long day when traveling we looked forward to a clean made up room. We found it just as we left it. Vacuuming is poor, there is always visible stuff on the carpet. The elevators where reprehensible! The carpets where grimy and revolting. No acknowledgment on check in either for Rewards Club Member. Although others who check in did receive recognition. Check in clerk was neither friendly or rude but it was clear we were the last one and he was glad about. Strike three for HI Express in Pittsburg area. Quality Control Reviewer, PLEASE do not post an unbecoming rubber stamp response. If there was action taken with the prior reviews, this one would have been very different I am sure. Will not stay here again! So much for banking reward points.

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times when traveling for work. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is ideal for me, as it is close to the site I was visiting. I don't have a lot bad to say about the hotel, really. Its simple, but reliably clean with prompt and attentive staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manassan Extraordinary Customer Service
I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in West Mifflin, PA, and experienced one of the finest examples of customer service I have seen in a good long time. My wife and I were in the area to attend the funeral of my wife's Dad in Pittsburgh, and I stayed at the hotel while my wife stayed at her late Dad's house to be near her siblings. My adult daughter and my son and his family were due to arrive the day after me, and both had questions about their reservations. I asked the desk clerk, a great guy named Ray, to do what he could to make sure that my daughter's room was non-smonking and that my son's room was non-smoking and had two beds (to accommodate his wife and my two young grandsons). Ray immediately swung into action and not only made sure of those specifications, but also arranged for their rooms to be on the same floor as mine. This was excellent enough, but there is more. The next day, Ray overheard us talking about my father-in-law's funeral, and called me over to the desk. He indicated he was not aware that we were there for a funeral, and mentioned that Holiday Inn has "bereavement" rates for such occasions. He then arranged to bill us at the reduced rate for the entire lengths of our stays, saving me several hundred dollars in total costs!! Ray was under no obligation, other than what he called his "personal conscience," to do this for us...and no one else in my 66 years has ever done anything similar in the hotel business. My highest praise for Ray and Holiday Inn, and lustiest kudos for a job well done. (Oh yes, and the rooms were meticulously cared for, and VERY comfortable - best bed I have slept on in years!!)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by abbategocubs All went well.
We needed a suite for our family of 5. This gave us the room. We had a King suite. Wish the 2 rooms had a door that shut between them so we could cut down on noise when some of the family was awake & some was asleep. We had a jacuzzi suite. We thought that would be great, get the kids in bed & relax together in the jacuzzi. The kids slept in the pullout couch & the rollaway bed. We took the king bed in the other room. Makes sense, right?. The jacuzzi was over in the room where the kids slept. Too bad. Wish there was more fruit at breakfast. It was summer after all. Had to ask for them to bring out any fruit & then it was just bananas.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geotek Good Location
Holiday Inn Express has always been one of my first choices for a hotel when I have to stay out of town for business. This location was very convenient for my business in Clairton, PA area. There are lots of places to eat close to the hotel. Overall the hotel is a great place to stay, although some maintenance is needed. I stayed in Room 338 and noticed that the towel rack was falling off the wall and the countertop below the bathroom sink was falling off. The carpets were dirty if you walked around in your bare feet - noticed that when I jumped in the shower. The breakfast buffet is excellent, but they need to come up with a better way to provide hot water for tea drinkers and oatmeal. It seems like I was always asking them to fill up the hot water dispenser. The equipment in the fitness area was not useful to me. I enjoy running on a good treadmill but they don't have one. Thank you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cleanroom70 Maid service
First I was not recognized as a Platinum Member. Second the room was not cleaned nor the bed made up after the first nights stay. I talked to the manager on duty about this and was informed that she would pass on my complaint to the head of the maid service. The bed the next day was sort of made up. It looked as though it was a chore to do the work. The pillows we just thrown on the bed. The bed sheet was not pulled down over the mattress and the remainder of the covers were partially tucked in. I again complained to the manager on duty and showed the photos I took on both occasions. She stated that this was hard to believe because after the maid service leaves the room another person is to check that the service was performed correctly. I was asked if anything could be done to satisfy me and I stated my feelings and went back to my room. I will never stay at this hotel again nor will I recommend it to anyone. I am disappointed in IHG for allowing this to happen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by atxan Stayed for GAP trail ride
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The clerk gave me a better rate when I told her we were there for the GAP! She printed out a map for us to find a trailhead with parking when I said we had trouble finding one. We were surprised how hard it was to find lodging on the GAP, so we gave up and drove back to West Mifflin, which really wasn't that far. We were delighted to find a clean and comfortable place. We arrived on Memorial Day and most food places were closed. We found a pizza place, brought our pizza back and ate it in the breakfast room. We were glad no one thought that was a big deal. I stayed at several HIXs on our 3 week trip, and this one was most impressive. This one had a guest laundry while the others did not.

All experiences here have been great, from the front desk personnel to the cleaning team. Each constantly asked if everything was satisfactory. The breakfast room was cheery and the selection outstanding. Note by the cleaning crew were cheerful, especially from Kelly. The room was cleaned early each day which was a plus. Would compliment all at this location.

I took my family there and I rented four rooms and everything was fine. The front desk worker was very nice and the rooms were clean The Breakfast was also good.
However.............. when I checked out I left my Kindall there. I called the hotel three times asking them to check and they never found it. I would think this would put a red flag at the Hotel of the integrity of their employees.
I will not stay there again and will not recommend it to anyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by danman54579 Had to pay for unused night - Not fair - Would not correct
I reserved a room on the internet for three nights as I had
done numerous times before. I guess I did not read the details
and with a higher quoted price I thought the room would have
a refund with typical 24 hrs notice. Somehow I got a non-refundable. On checkout they said manager would correct - no big deal. Checked out. Manager Cory did not correct. Called motel - told to call holiday inn corporate - corporate said only local can correct - called motel - left message for Cory - no answer no correct - leave bad review - the end.

This year I have stayed at newer buildings, this obviously is not, however, it appears updates are taking place. My room lighting was not satisfactory for doing paper- work/reading after dark. The lighting in the rear parking area was minimal, lighting in the main/front parking lot non-existant. My first night, arriving back after dinner & after dark, I voiced my concern at the front desk & was told they would check on it. The second & last night of my stay, the parking lot in front remained dark, so I parked in the rear lot. I also missed having a refridgerator in my room, however, that may be something newly offered in the newer buildings. The staff was courteous and friendly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kmsc Only thing good was Yolanda and Joann
I have never been treated so bad by any establishment before in my life!!!! I hosted a 70th and 50th birthday party for my Mother and I, and the only thing that was easy was making the arrangements with Yolanda. After that the rest was downhill. The manager was very unproffessional the other staff was rude and ignorant to my guest. I nor my friends and family will NEVER host an event there again. The bathroom smelled like urine the one in the room. My DJ started at 5 and was asked immediatly to turn the music down. They were well aware that there was going to be a DJ. They had nobody on staff to get rid of garbage so we had to do that ourselves. Nobody was there to get us ice,as a matter of fact they had 1 person on stafff all night long. I believe that was done on purpose. I would have had better service at a firehall. Luckily none of my guest knew what was going on behing the scenes we had a GREAT event after all!!! Not because of the hotel but because of the people that we are!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tutm Just not comfortable
The room furniture and layout were not as functional as I have experienced in other hotels and motels recently. Computer connections were not current and arranged awkwardly.
The bathroom was not as clean as it shouldl have been.
The televeision was hostage inside the cabinet and did not allow for adjustment if you weren't sitting right in front of it.
Based on this room, I would recommend that the whole facility be given a thorough review and prepare for upgrades in functionality, cleanliness, and comfort.

Bathrooms are on the small side, especially if you not a couple. Breakfast was better than most with a pancake machine that makes good, hot pancakes! A great idea.
We had problems with a running toilet and a dripping sink. More attention needs to be made to maintenance.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cpnyguest Poor Experience
Stayed two nights. First night when I got in to my room it was very cold. The heater output was very low and it took 6 hours before the room was comfortable. The second night a loud dog was barking in the room across the hall every time someone walked down the hall. After two hours I called the front desk and was told it was a pet friendly hotel and that this was considered acceptable. I was moved to another floor. In that room the heater fan was very noisy. Do yourself a favor and stay at one of the several other hotels in the immediate area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HZ58 Over Christmas Holiday 2012
Not a great experience. We were told that breakfast was served until 10:30, went down at 9:35, staff was clearing the breakfast items. My husband had checked out the breakfast and returned for a cinnamon bun, gone, staff said breakfast closed at 9:30, with a huge attitude, her cell phone rang a minute later and she happily answered it.
The bathroom vanity was falling off the wall. I had made the reservation at least a month before, and the hotel was not busy, were all the rooms this bad?
The breakfast staff person was the worst that we had experienced , we went to check out and no bill under the door. Stopped at the desk and reception was not there, "went off to restock".
The worst experience we have had,makes Hampton Inn look like a million bucks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trend Dirty, uncomfortsble and poor guest service.
I was denied breakfast even just a glass of orange juice because I arrive at breakfast two minutes late and found them packing items. The room and common areas were very dirty. I has requested and reserved a room with a fridge and microwave but was suprised to find that I the room reserved for me had none of these items. This Holiday Inn is very poor.
