Below are some testimonials, but please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns.

I’ve stayed here and as have numerous friends and family while visiting or passing through the Pittsburgh area. No it’s not the Waldorf Astoria, but it is a nice cozy, clean and comfortable place to get a good nights sleep! It has a rustic charm that the sterile corporate motels can’t claim. It hearkens back to the days of the Mom & Pop family run motels that littered the major routes running through the USA. There are many places to eat and shop, plus a couple fitness centers all within walking distance. So if you like the feeling of being in a cozy small cabin in the mountains then I recommend the Penn Irwin Motel for overnight or lengthy stays.

We spent a few days of a family trip driving the Lincoln Highway through Pennsylvania, and looked forward to some stops at classic eateries and hostelries. This place, near Irwin, PA, was just about perfect. It has been cleaned up and fixed up without losing any of its mid 20th century charm. The walls are dark paneled wood, the bathrooms perfectly adequate but not modern, the rooms spic and span and the bedding comfortable. Our room had a desk and sofa. Amazingly, it also had working Magic Fingers vibrators on the bed. We giggled for a full fifteen minutes until the quarter ran out. Look for the big neon sign up the short drive. This place is nothing like a chain motel, so be prepared for a surprise.

I had to stay in the area for a night on business and was looking forward to the stay after watching a PBS show about motels along the Lincoln Highway. Thank goodness for the large Motel sign because it would be pretty easy to drive by without it. The couple who checked my in were very pleasant and quite helpful. My room was almost too warm when I walked in and I did not see a means of adjusting what looked like steam heat from the radiator, but it wasn’t that bad. The room was appointed with antique furniture, including the bed, chair, desk and dresser and it was all in very good condition. The bathroom looked immaculate and appeared to be in the same condition when the place was new. My bed was firm, as were the pillows, but I enjoyed a very restful night’s sleep. I did not risk a quarter in the Magic Fingers, but seeing it brought back a great deal of nostalgia. The room was very clean and neat from carpet to ceiling. The photos provided by the management accurately depict what you can expect upon check in.
