Days Inn: Decent Budget Hotel in New Stanton

This was a nice enough hotel with a few extras like a small refrigerator and a microwave. The drawback was the crappy, intermittent Internet.

America's Best Value: Nice Motel in Oil City

This is a nice hotel with a few extras in the rooms like a small refrigerator and a microwave. The lobby was not that impressive but the room was pretty nice. A decent value at $77 as of August 2011.

Italian Restaurant in the hotel but it was closed the day I was there. Nice view of river and park from some rooms.

Melody Motor Lodge: Avoid in Connellsville

This is a bare bones motel with a rather low price. The room had no extras but was clean and adequate. The problem came when I was awakened by the lady running the motel entering the room with a key and saying that tenants were complaining because there was a smoky smell coming from the Central Air and accusing me of smoking (I am a non-smoker). It is not possible to determine where the smell is coming from with Central Air it could have been from a smoking room. The lady loudly accused me of smoking in a non-smoking room and threatened me with a $1500 fine (I think she accused other guests too). I called the credit card company to prevent this possibility. The room was $53 as of August 2011 but under the circumstances was not worth it.

Best Western: Nice Motel in Bradford

This is a nice hotel and they were undergoing a renovation to improve part of the facilities. The work was fairly discreet and did not adversely affect things except near the lobby. The room was nice and had a small refrigerator and a microwave. The staff was good too. Not cheap at $83 as of August 2011, but worth it.

Nice outdoor pool. Lounge and restaurant inside the hotel.

Comfort Inn: Very Nice Hotel in Duncansville

This Comfort Inn had very nice rooms with lots of extras. They had a small refrigerator and a microwave, flat screen TVs and a comfortable bed. They served one of the better breakfasts I had in any motel on this 100+ day trip. The staff was nice too. Almost a 5 out of 5. A great deal at $77 as of August 2011.

Nice Restaurants in Walking Distance.

Star Crest Motel: Not the Best in Mansfield

This is an old-fashioned motel. The facilities are older but in decent shape. Not the place to stay if newer ammenities and spotless rooms are needed. Staff was okay. Nice restaurant/bar in walking distance. Internet was intermittent. Too expensive for what you get.

EconoLodge: Decent Budget Motel in Drums

This was a fairly bare bones motel and although it is older is decently maintained. The owner was nice enough. Not too bad for the traveler worried about their budget.

Summit Inn: Not the Best Choice in Philadelphia

The Summit Inn did not appear to be in the best part of town, although it also was not the worst. There were no real extras and the price was kinda high. Staff was okay. "Continental Breakfast" was a couple of stale donuts, bad coffee, and orange juice (the best part). I would not stay here again.

CAPTAIN’S WATCH INN: Laurel Highlands Secret

The little village of Greensboro used to be the home for pottery kilns that took advantage of a large clay deposit along the Monongahela River, turning out stoneware of many types. The manager of one of those kilns lived in this comfortable house - the Crawford House - sitting directly above the river. -William McCormick and his two bulldogs play host here and do a fine job of making you feel at home. Breakfasts are outstanding, bedrooms are comfortable and the large verandah overlooking the river is a grand place to just sit and watch the Monongahela flow by from. Greensboro is a little off the beaten path, but it really is a very suitable alternative to the hosts of motel rooms along US 40 for visiting the many tourist sites in the Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. There is a lot of things to see and do but a short drive away. People heading to football games and other events in nearby Morgantown, West Virginia at the University of West Virginia, could do much better staying here than there, as well. There are a couple of canoes and kayaks available for guests to get out on the river to make the deal even sweeter. This B/B is a great reason to include southwestern Pennsylvania on your travel itinerary.

The verandah, the breakfasts, the kayaks, the bulldogs, the San Marino flag and the amiable host.

WEILER MANSION BED AND BREAKFAST: Home away from home in the Big Valley

I found the Weiler Mansion B/B while searching the hinterlands around State College looking for a room for a couple of nights during a football weekend at Penn State. The house dates back to the early 1800’s and turned out to be an excellent alternative to the run-of-the-mill motels in State College that grossly inflate their prices on football weekends - on the order of five times higher! Sitting up on the west edge of Jack’s Mountain, the house overlooks the Big Valley - also known as the Kishacoquillas or Kish Valley. The valley is an anticlinal valley lying between Jack’s Mountain and Stone Mountain and is home to several fairly large groups - at least five separate orders - of Old Order Amish.

Rooms inside the house are quite large and the breakfasts that Claudia cooks up are quite the treat. There were eggs, sausages, ham, pies - including the traditional Pennsylvania Dutch Shoofly Pie - among other treats to be seen. The B/B is a working farm and as you drive up, the cows gather about expecting you to feed them. A wonderful front porch full of rockers allow you to sit back and take in the whole pastoral Big Valley scene. Belleville is the closest town - about five miles north where there is a large weekly farmers’ market on Wednesdays that is very popular - and if you are heading to State College, it is about a half hour and two mountains to the north.

Shoofly Pie, Amish neighbors, front porch rockers, friendly cows and wonderful hosts.

Worst Western: Outskirts of Erie

I booked online, which wasn't a big deal. But when I tried to deal directly with the hotel, it became a nightmare. We were three dudes shairng one room with two beds. I called two hours before we arrived asking for a roll-away. When we checked in, the younger dude working the counter was unable to open the storage room door to retrieve the roll-away, but told us when we got back he'd have it in our room.

Which never happened.

The next morning I spoke to the older woman now at the desk who informed me I needed to let them know prior to arrival if we were going to need a roll-away. I told her I did. Her immediate response was, "Well, we don't have any here." Not allowing myself to be confused, I shot back with, "Is your staff aware of this? I called and was told 'No problem.' I arrived and was told, 'No problem.' We got here last night and it has been nothing but a problem." Luckily, Kegger had an inflatable camping mattress and he crashed on that both nights. The third desk worker, a middle aged man, deducted the sales tax and gave me a senior rate.

The breakfast buffet was an open box of Hostess donuts and some juice boxes.

Sheraton 4 Points: Sheraton 4 Points in Philadelphia

The hotel itself is very nice. The bed is very comfortable. However, the only places to eat in the area are at the Sheraton 4 Points and the Sheraton Suites across the street. These places are extremely expensive to eat at. There is nothing else in this area to see or do.

Sheraton Society Hill: Philadelphia - Society Hill

If you are visiting Philadelphia, there are a couple of options on where to stay. We had a conference on the riverfront, which led us to choose the Sheraton Society Hill, because of its proximity. It was a short little walk to restaurants and nightlife, and was on the main trolley paths for the other more exciting locations such as the Liberty Bell and the like.

Overall, the hotel was nice. I thought it was a much older tradtional building, but I learned that it was actually built in the 80's and just designed to look older. The "antique" elevatore made me mad though when I found out that it actually was not slow because it was old, but rather designed that way.

The room was comfortable, mainly because of Sheraton's "Sweet Sleeper" bed, but I would warn you not to get a room on the third floor, because it is located right next to the pool. There seemed to be alot of noise coming from the pool, which was right out my back balcony window.

Stony Fork Creek Campground: Nice Campground

We arrived at this family owned campground via a backcountry road. They have a nice camp store that sells local baked goods and snacks, good coffee and pretty much any of the things you might forget on a camping trip. they also have a good selection of souvenirs and t shirts reasonably priced.
We would definately stay here again. The pool was nice as well as the stocked pond, the playground was a bit small but it appears they are adding to it.

To get to the tent sites you drive across Stony Fork Creek...literally there is no bridge. Because the campground is located in a valley surrounded by rolling mountains the water level definately rose the day we left due to the heavy rains. My sister who went along for the trip drove her small Saturn through with no problem though Id have to say it would be interesting to see how high the water was at the end of the day.

Free campgrounds.

Around Pennsylvania, especially around the walking trails and bicycle trails you can find primitive campsites where you can camp for free.
They mostly have just a toilet and a fireplace, but i found that sufficient for most nights when touring and i think it's great that such options excist in Pennsylvania as it makes the trip more affordable and gives you a more real experience with nature.
