DAYS INN -- WASHINGTON PA: GREAT LOCATION

Thursday, September 14, 2006
After a long day of driving, we decided to stay in Washington, PA and chose the DAYS INN as it was posted in the Hotel Travel Coupon Book. It was a good location and a good price -- $40.00 plus tax.
The room was clean and spacious, with a mini-fridge and micowave. Also high speed wireless internet is available for a fee.

The Days Inn has 104 guest rooms, outdoor swimming pool & guest laundry, complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, free local calls and a variety of restaurants nearby.

Log Cabin Motel: My favorite PA hotel

We stayed in the Log Cabin Motel while were went out to western PA to visit Fallingwater. I had seen it on the internet and was dying to stay there. the decor is Log cabin like (who would have guessed) with some very interesting furniture made from natural twigs, branches and logs. Some of the rooms have hot tubs, ours did :) It was a very cozy place to stay. the only downside is there is no breakfast available. We had to drive a little ways to find a diner.

The decor is it's biggest selling point.

It is also located right next to Living Treasures animal Park. In fact the LT gift shop is where the "front desk" is located.

You can get a discount if you have an AAA card.

Rickett's Glen Hotel: Conviently Located in the Middle of Nowhere

The couple of times we went up to do some hiking a beautiful Rickett's Glen State Park, we stayed at this cute little place just down the road on RT118. The owners are very kind and helpful and will make your stay a pleasant one!
The hotel has approximately 8 rooms. When we went in May we were the only ones staying here.
There is only one room that has it's own bathroom with shower, this one is a little more expensive (about $10 more) and is spacious with a queen sized bed. Otherwise the other rooms either have a half bath or have a shared bathroom in the hallway. (with the half bath you have to use the hallway bathroom to shower) All are very reasonably priced about $40-$50 a night.
They do not serve breakfast, however. You will have to travel a little ways to get to a diner. we are quite familiar with the area and went to a place in Dushore that we go to when we are camping nearby.

The Rickett's Glen Hotel is primarily known for it's restaurant, the food is excellent! There is also a bar here, but not to worry, even though it's open until 2, you don't hear a thing in your room.
I loved standing on the back porch at night to hear the perfect sound of nothing but frogs on the nearby lake, and waking up early to watch the sunrise over Beaver Pond.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hotel Windsor: In the city center of Philadelphia

Philadelphia's Hotel Windsor is located right in the middle of things. About 10 blocks walk from either the Museum District, or the Historical area, depending on which direction you go. The room was spacious with 2 double beds, a kichen and 2 walk in closets. Seemed like a good place to stay if you neede to be in Philadelphia on business for awhile, or just simply if you have a LOT of luggage.
It did the job for us, though we only utilized the kitchen for the sake of making tea and coffee in the morning.
The only complaint was that Lou found the bed to be on a slant, with his feet higher than his head. Not the best nights sleep we ever had.

The best thing about this hotel was the rooftop pool. Unfortunately it was not open yet, have to wait for summer for that. We were still able to go to the roof and check out the city views at night. Just beautiful!

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.

Westwynd Farm Bed and Breakfast: A great Bed and Breakfast in HERSHEY!

I began staying with at Westwynd Inn when I traveled to Hershey for business. In all, I spent about a month at the here. During that time, I became close friends of the owners, Frank and Carolyn Troxell. They have converted their home, with the help of a beautiful addition, into a 7-bedroom bed and breakfast. Carolyn is an amazing cook; so make sure to make time for breakfast each morning. The room are all unique, with their own bathroom and gas fireplace. There are three common rooms in the inn. The grounds are amazing. They have a barn where they board horses. Guest are welcome to wander about on the grounds. In the distance, you can see the famous Hershey Hotel. On a beautiful summer day, you will have a hard time remembering a place so peaceful and filled with beauty.

The grounds, the comfort and the friendly atmosphere of the inn kept me coming back. This is an especially wonderful place for a female traveling alone on business. Also, Carolyn has treats out all day long, so after a long day at Hershey Park, you can come "home" to fresh cooked goodies!

This part of Fayette County...

This part of Fayette County has a strange blend of very ritzy resorts and almost run-down motels. If you're not too fussy you'll find what you need. One of the nicer places is The Summit Inn Resort, in Farmington, although it's a little more costly than others.

Columbian Bed & Breakfast: Lovely B&B

We stayed at the Columbian for one night in August to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. At the time, a Sunday night, we were the only guests there, it was nice to have this beautiful old inn all to ourselves. We stayed in the Bishop room, decorated in a romantic style with a four poster bed and a fireplace. Karen, our hostess was very helpful and sweet, not to mention a fantastic cook. Our breakfast, served on the outside patio, was just delightful.

This lovely brick faced B&B, has wonderful wrap around porches, a back patio with coy pond and waterfall and lovely indor common spaces. The whole place seems to be designed for relaxing and enjoying time with your special someone.

Gateway Lodge-Country Inn: Gateway Lodge-Country Inn



The lodge has a heated indoor pool, sauna and I believe there was a workout room. They offer full service meals, or four and seven course dinners by reservation..we got the seven course meals.. wow! You wake up still full and then you have your breakfast reservations to look foward too! =) Hunger is not a problem here! There are rooms, cottages, and suites. We had a suite, good choice! The suites' have king-sized beds, fireside whirlpool tubs and large private bath (with his and her sinks!) The suites dont have t.v.s' but if your not hiking because of the weather or whatever, you can go to the great room and read one of the many books they have available to you. Or swim, or workout, or play a game or go antiquing.
