My companion and I slept here on October 20th, 2018. I woke in the morning to find a bedbug crawling across the bedspread. I knew exactly what it was and was angry at myself for not thinking about those little horrors the night before and never checked the beds. The beds have those zippered covers on that are SUPPOSE to keep the bugs out. They do not. It is a total scam to waste money on those covers. The bugs will get in where the velcro closes over the zipper. My companion took the bug in two styrofoam cups to the office and came back telling me they offered him a discount. DISCOUNT! No way in God's green earth was I about to accept that. That man behind the counter KNEW they had bugs there; it was obvious by how nervous he acted. His wife (I assume, his wife) came from the room off to the side to tell me about how clean they are and that those pests can come from anywhere. She had the nerve to tell me I may have brought them in on my coat! They handed me a printout to prove they would not be charging the credit card. They should have paid me because I had to wash all the clothes and the backpack they were in. It was sitting on the floor right between the beds. You don't want to have to pay an exterminator if you drag those bugs into your home believe me. They are expensive and you can not get rid of them with products bought in stores. That is another scam. I tell you from experience. I had the darn things at home. I threw out a bed and two sofas and still had to hire an exterminator. DO NOT STAY AT THIS MOTEL!!! My shoes are still in the freezer in a thin plastic bag and I may just throw them away. I will never be able to see those tiny beasts on that black mesh material. Bedbugs are a devastation and very traumatic experience that I was tortured with. I certainly pray to our Father God that I have not brought any home with me. I will be in the insane asylum if I have to go through that nightmare again. Oh yes and by the way, being CLEAN has NOTHING to do with those pests. Sorry for the prolix post. It is all true.
We stayed at Knights Inn in Somerset, PA on October 11, 2018. The room looked clean, but there was an unpleasant smell that remained in the room. The bathroom was very small, but for one night it was bearable. We got up early and went for breakfast to find only 2 small chocolate donuts in an opened box, fruit loop cereal sitting on the counter, coffee and orange juice. We made ourselves coffee and I poured orange juice in a cup, took a drink and dumped it out. The orange juice tasted like watered down orange drink. We paid only $55 for our room, so I was not expecting something extravagant, but I would not stay here again even if it was free.
I stayed here 2 nights. The property is old and dated. My room was very dark due to the poor lighting. I found it hard to get comfortable. And I woke up with tiny bite marks all over my body. When I Googled it, the marks were the same as bedbugs. I have heard other people say about bedbugs at this place. I believe it's true. The pool is permanently closed. The place just isn't that great. I had a really good rate, but that's about all that was good about it.
Very clean, very quiet, very comfortable. I’ve spent twice as much for a lot less in better known budget chains. Perfect place for a turnpike night. Single story and parking at door makes for quick and easy loading and unloading. Fantastic bedding. TV fine. All the popular food chains nearby. KFC has a generous senior discount. New AC in my room. Ice in office. Very nice Starbucks around corner. The $40+tax rate (saw a coupon on Iexit app) helped offset the ridiculous Pa. Turnpike tolls. Next time I’ll take I-80 instead of paying almost $50 to cross the state. And tolls go up Jan 1. I wish there were such a well-run affordable place to stay at every exit. And speaking of the Turnpike, it’s pretty much continuous big rigs. But traffic moves at 80 mph and I never saw anybody pulled over. Trucks pay $120 plus to cross Pa, which helps to explain why shipping costs more than the item you’re buying.
We stay here every year when we attend the Mother Earth News Fair. The room is clean and it is quite. I like being able to park right in front of the room. We come to the room at bedtime shower go to bed. Our needs are simple. The price for the room is very good. We did not eat the breakfast but husband said they had upgraded the area and they had more choices.
