The HIE is easy to get to--just off turnpike BUT at least first floor hallway is under construction, you can hear the conversation in the room beside you and no room to sit in breakfast area. You can do better for $139.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express off the turnpike Allegheny Valley exit for the first time this Saturday. Have driven past many times. The property was fine for mid-level chain- decent room, linens, shower, TV, space -all standard.

Holiday Inn Express is my hotel of choice in this price range. In reviewing these properties I try to compare strictly with comparable price/amenities, etc. It is pointless to note that a mid-range chain hotel lacks luxury amenities. Having said this, the Holiday Inn Express in Harmarville, PA ranks at the BOTTOM of the many similar properties we have visited.... More

When we reserved a room we requested two cribs for our infant twins. When we arrived we were told there was only one crib available, and that the hotel did not guarantee the availability of cribs. This would have been helpful to know when we made the reservation--it's a little late to find this out after we arrive.

Thank you for your comments. I am very sorry that you had encountered problems during your stay. Unfortunately we do not guarantee cots/cribs because we have a limited number of them. We try our best to meet all requests for cots/cribs but at not always able to. I am very sorry for any miscommunication when making your reservation. More

Our room had an overpowering smell of mold. There was black mold all over the bathroom floor and spots on the wall. I opened the welcome book and there was a half inch of dust on it. I was disgusted by the lack of housekeeping. We will never use this hotel again.
