Holiday Inn Express Johnstown
Travel Blogs from Johnstown
Well, another cold, clammy day with another final 20 mile ride in more serious rain. Temperatures ranged from 48 to 54F. But at least I was on a more pleasant set of backroads after leaving the Lehigh Valley and I-78. The northbound lanes around Hershey were a nightmare with a reduction to one lane. Something to avoid on the return trip.
... cooler! Yum! Breakfast of champions! When we went to get gas the attendant told us electrical problems, no gas. So we got off in new Stanton exit for gas which was bout 30 miles down road. Our car is ford escape and getting 40 mpg. Yippee! Beautiful country up here in western PA! Truck traffic is a little much right now! Hope that ...
... it another dimension...we both looked at the same details, wondering together about a lot of things we saw and felt together I think the same excitement.... The guided tour was over, we walked around to take some last photos before we hit the road. We bought some souvenirs but we had to leave something from us, aviv threw her water bottle to the bush....(-; It was 15:00 when we left with a lot of memories, and very good ones...7 hours and we are back to concrete ...
... as yelp came up blank. He sent us to a hot dog place (!), saying "Anne Lo's has the best breakfast in town!" (This turned out to be "Inlow's," actually, but neither Tim nor I got that until we saw the sign.) Possibly this is because it has the only breakfast in town, as the breakfast itself was nothing to write home about (so I won't). It was, however, very cheap, and no, you don't get hot dogs. Regular eggs, bacon, toast, and so forth.
The Bar Ann Drive-In in Portage, PA, is about 2.5 hours north of the zoo. It’s been around since 1955, and, according to the projectionist, who saw us taking pictures of the projector and stopped to turn on the projection room lights for us and then stayed for a chat, is likely to make the switchover to digital one way or another. They are participating in the Honda projector giveaway ...
How has this motel rated in the past?
Not a friendly reception and a small sign required an additional $3 for parking (since August). Yes, it's a small amount, but nickels & dimes add up.
Anyway, one of the 2 elevators was unavailable (in repair). Good thing I was on the 2nd floor and could just run upstairs. I noticed dirty glasses and a cup on the floor by the elevator when I went up - these stayed there all afternoon and into the evening.
The room was clean and comfortable with fridge, micro and coffee maker, so no faults there. And at the end of the hall, it was quiet.
The fitness center has 4 machines, of which only 2 work (a bike and a treadmill). The indoor pool, sauna and hot tub were enjoyed by others as
I labored at the bike.
The restaurant, Harrigans, is convenient and has an extensive wine selection and attractive dessert viewing tray. The food was good but the bill was inaccurate and fortunately I caught the $8 overcharge and was assured that the computer entry was reset for future patrons.
So, the room is fine, but the rest needs some attention.
