Stayed recently and had a great experience! Friendly and attentive staff. Clean rooms and quiet. Checkout was fast. Restaurants within a few minutes from the establishment. Recommend if you are looking for a clean room with minimal amenities.

Barry D, Owner at Davis Motel, responded to this review

Thanks for the five star review and the kind words. Our guests save over half by us not offering the costly extravagant frills and superfluous décor and exterior facades of the high priced chains. With that said, we still able offer more amenities than the budget franchises like:: Microwaves, Fridges, Free Fast & No hassling with passwords Wi-Fi, Over 60...

It's safe, secure, clean inexpensive, and the employees are sincerely personable in a way that you don't regularly see at major hotel chains. Great conversations, great people, and a local treasure in the Youngstown area.

Your flattering review says it all ! So I’ll just say. Thanks for the encouraging and kindhearted comments. And we are glad you had the same, “Five Star Hospitality” experience as verified in reviews by the vast majority of our past recent guests. Thanks for staying. :) "Innkeeping" with you in mind, Barry Davis Owner/Mgr.

Reviewed 17 January 2017

At first glance, this shabby old school motel has stay away written all over it. And at $39 a night, how good can it be? Then when you check in and one of the über friendly owners says " do you want a beer, or a soft drink or a water?". These guys seemed to actually be glad I was...

Yes Michael we may not look like the newest accommodates however like you surmised by not being saddled down with the costly extravagant frills and superfluous décor and exterior facades of the high priced chains our guests save over half.

1st read about the owners on this site. Awesome time speaking with them in the office about the history of the hotel, the history of trucking in Youngstown that is connected to the hotel, and the history of Youngstown. By the way, the room was CLEAN, the sheets FELT NEW (and I stayed here twice in the last year), and...

Although Bruce like you some of our guests love our retro charm. However for others we also offer rooms with a more modern appeal. And yes our Davis family for five generations (Ohio born and raised) has been pleasing our guests with clean inexpensive rooms while providing five star hospitality which include as you mentioned our convenient location.

Elegance, Stylish, Tasteful, Lovely, just some words i would use to describe Davis Motel. Fastest Wifi East of San Francisco with some of the classiest employees this traveler ever seen.

The staff were all extremely nice and helpful, and the room was spotless. Great location as well--there was a tavern right next door, and a Pilot just down the street. Would definitely stay here again.

Based on recent reviews we have initiated improvements. We consider your review a “pat on the back” and a “job well done” on our comprehensive refurbishing. Thanks for the “FIVE STAR” review and for staying.

Reviewed 7 November 2016

Davis Motel is the best kept secret on the I-80 corridor. For rates significantly lower than a traditional hotel Davis Motel provides small, clean rooms that have surprisingly good beds. I slept like a baby. I met the two brothers who run the place for their family owned business, and they were great conversationalists, and loaned me an iron when...

Barry D, Owner at Davis Motel, responded to this review

Thanks Thomas. Your kind words makes us feel that our over 55 years of providing ‘Five Star Hospitality’ with the experience passed down from five generations is being appreciated. BTW: Our guests can request a bigger room in our new wing. You made our day! :) “Innkeeping” with you in mind, Barry Davis Owner/Mgr.

New Kensington, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 6 November 2016

The women in the office were friendly although it reeked of cigarette smoke. Our room was in the back and there was no good place to park but we were actually uneasy about parking in the front and walking around so we made our own spot. There was no tub and the shower was not very inviting. There was a...

Older, small rooms. Spotlessly clean with comfortable bed. Very courteous staff. Large counter with microwave and refrigerator. Parking lot needs repair. Easy on and off for Ohio turnpike. McDonald's next door and many restaurants nearby.

Barry D, Owner at Davis Motel, responded to this review

We agree we may not look like the newest “Polished” accommodates. However like you pointed out, “Price is great.” that is because by not being saddled down with the costly extravagant trappings and superfluous décor and exterior facades of the high priced chains, our guests save over half. WTS: We do have plans to resurface our parking lot plus if...

This hotel had a pretty nice setup from the beginning. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice and cozy. I would definitely come back here if I ever stop at Youngstown, Ohio again. The location of this Motel was fantastic because it wasn't too far away from anywhere to get food or gas.

Barry D, Owner at Davis Motel, responded to this review

Besides those nice conveniences I’ll add: Clean rooms with an odorless nonsmoking room option plus our updating with larger granite style desktops and new spacious executive bathroom shelving plus Free and Fast Wi-Fi (With no hassling with a password) and a Microwave/Fridge and each guest receives a free unique welcoming “goody” bag. In addition we have a speedy registration with...
