We went to Fallingwater and stayed here because it was close by and our kids love animals. Very friendly staff. Clean and well kept. Very well decorated to keep with the rustic animal theme. Very cool that you have the living treasures zoo right in the backyard and get 50% off tickets there. We couldn’t believe how affordable the hotel was for the quality and experience you get. My whole family had an amazing time and we would highly recommend. The animal park was also very well kept with spacious exhibits for the animals and they all seemed really happy to be fed all day long by the guests.
Horrible from the time we got. Reservation was screwed up said they had no pet friendly suite available even though that is what I reserved. The girl at the desk blamed their mistake on me. I found a motel that took pets and told them to just forget the whole thing. Then she said their was now a pet friendly suite available and I had pay for it whether we stayed there or not. It was down the road next to the turnpike. It smelled bad, moldy like it had not been used for a long time. The floor was so dirty, it was gritty. We couldn’t sleep because of being next to the turnpike. Everyone was rude except the girl that lived next door and asked about towels, she was nice. Pet friendly ? — if you want to walk your dog along a busy road that is about 50 feet from your door. When you call a recording says the number is out of order and gives and alternate number. No one answered the alternate number. Message box full. You should be ashamed of yourselves we checked out early. And even though no one will respond to emails and disconnect me on the phone, I still want my money back.…
We would of rated it maybe higher, but we did not have hot showers for some reason Pros— An animal park across parking lot Good location close to Ohiopyle, Fallingwater and other parks Price Cons— Water not hot in shower Noisy road in morning. A lot of gravel trucks maybe heading to a local quarry Not many dinner options. We went to 7 Springs for dinner Need to get a leaf blower and blow dust and spider webs away outside
Loved our room, we got a jacuzzi room for 2. Not enough tables for 2 computers, but the vanity counter worked for me. The jacuzzi tub is definitely large enough for 2 comfortably even if you are larger than average. The tv had the ability to accept external inputs. The attached zoo was marvelous, (I’m a kid at heart) we went every day! When we first pulled in, I noticed that the parking lot was much darker than I am used to. Then I was struck by how wide the parking spaces were! (sounds silly, I know, but it was nice). We will definitely return!
We stayed for 1 night. I could hear with clear distinction every word being spoken by both neighboring rooms. This lasted until 1:30 am when I finally complained. The complaint was followed up but the noise did not stop. The day managers solution was to give a refund for $27.50. We could hear the party happening in the house across the parking lot in the homes. While the night manager was very kind, the rooms have paper thin walls. Plan not to sleep, and also advice to parents, your children may hear things they should not hear! It was a terrible evening. **I have a video on my cell I cannot post, even on my phone you can clearly hear every word the people in room 207 were saying. I was in 206.
We stumbled across this place when looking for a hotel to stay at for my daughter's (she was 7 at the time) karate tournament. We were so excited to learn there was an animal park on site!!! We definitely were anticipating a great time and this place delivered 110%! We got there late as my husband had to work that day so we couldn't make the 4 hour drive until he was off and the dogs were at boarding, but even though it was late the desk staff was super friendly and helpful. They didn't just tell us where our room was but explained in depth how to get there which was super helpful! We stayed in Pikeview and just loved the room. It was off site, so a few minutes up the road but we didn't mind that as it actually put us a few mins closer to her tournament. The room was like a little apartment. It had a big jacuzzi tub, nice bathroom, little living area, table, and mini kitchen. This was super helpful throughout the weekend especially to make sure she had a warm breakfast before the tournament. The gentleman that was in the suite next to us was super friendly as we met him in passing and we actually spent some time with him and his daughter in the zoo on Sunday (check out day). We loved the little zoo and the fact that we could feed so many animals. Especially the little kangaroos who took carrots so nice with their little paws! The room itself was very clean as was the zoo and gift shop. Staff was nothing but friendly and didn't mind my daughter talking their ear off! We had such a good time we are still talking about it nearly a year later and my daughter and us can't wait to come back. The tournament date has just posted for this year, November 7th, and we are getting ready to book (hopefully the same room) again and plan to make this a yearly family tradition! …
The cabin was centrally located between the heavily travelled PA Turnpike and the busy Rt.31. Which means there vehicles wizzing by all day all night throughout the night. Pikeview is road frontage to the PA Turnpike and Rt. 31. It looks like if has no business being there in that location. Aside from location, the interior had lingering odors of rodent droppings. Did not see any droppings only the strong odor. Too bad on the location and rodent odor, because it has full kitchen, shower, and hot water.
This place may look a little Oakley ,well maybe it is a little Oakley. But I got to tell ya it's really kool . Let's start with the kool. I mean it's very nicely done in true craftsmanship style all very fine woodwork. Did I mention the fire place and the two person jacuzzi what more could you ask for !! Also there's a real animal farm on site with a little gift shop. If you ever happen to be in this neck of the wood make a point to visit ,you won't be disapointes
If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay in the Laurel Highlands that has a little bit of offbeat personality, this may be the perfect spot for you. The rooms have a rather unusual decor - that of a rustic country cabin. I enjoyed the natural wood finishes and the bear-themed blankets & rocking chair. C'mon, how often do you even GET a rocking chair in your motel room? The room was fairly large and had lots of amenities - fairly by mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, flat screen TV with TONS of cable channels, and nice towels. The bed was very comfortable, and there were plenty of drawers & an open closet area if you choose to empty your luggage. There was even a gas (or maybe electric) fireplace with a remote control. The biggest downside for me was temperature control. I stayed during two unusually warm days in late October. Although the room had a thermostat, I couldn't get anything that felt like air conditioning to cool down the room. I ended up leaving the door open for a couple of hours that evening, which worked well, but allowed bugs to get inside. Also, there was a floor heater in the bathroom that was turned on by default, so it got up to 77 degrees in my room while I slept. The next morning I asked the staff if the heater could be turned off, which they gladly did, from a control panel that was NOT inside the room. The lodge share the property with, and is directly adjacent to Living Treasures wild animal park, a small zoo with everything from porcupines, to pigs, to a couple of lions and tigers. In the early evening and not long after dawn, I occasionally could hear either a tiger or a lion roaring. I could also hear a little noise from nearby rooms, but the people were really quiet, so it wasn't a problem. I chose the top floor on purpose to avoid noise from people above me, but if you do so, be aware there's no elevator, so you'll have to carry your luggage upstairs. The motel room section has windows only facing the front, with views of the parking lot. Each unit has a chair on the walkway in front of it. The included breakfast was decent, although short on protein (other than yogurt). There was a hot waffle maker, cereals, oatmeal, pastries and fresh fruit. Signs said that Jimmy Dean biscuits, egg sandwiches, etc. were available for a couple of dollars extra ... and there was a microwave for heating them. There's no restaurant on site, although a few nearby places will deliver. There are a couple of good restaurants within a mile or two, and a few fast-food joints plus large family-style restaurant called Brady's (no alcohol) about 5-10 minutes away.…
My family of 4 really enjoyed our weekend stay. We stayed for 2 nights. The room was wonderfully decorated. My son loved the bunk beds. We loved that this was right next to the zoo. We went 3 times during our stay! My 2 year old couldn’t get enough of it. Breakfast was a plus. My only negative was the pillows were too hard for us. Next time we will just bring our own. We definitely plan on coming back for a weekend visit.
