We decided to stay here while visiting our daughter and her husband in Millvale. Place is very clean, easy parking, comfortable room and bed. Manager is easy to get hold of and answered all of our questions. We never saw the manger which was ok. We were given a code to enter the building and instructions. The place is an...

The suites are relatively close to the University of Pittsburgh and major museums in the area of the University. This accommodation can't be bitten for a larger family. We were travellin gwith a baby and the option to park and the availability of a cot were extremely handy. The suites are clean, with all basic necessities within the kitchen and...

My husband and I stayed here numerous times and highly recommend it. The owner has transformed these older buildings into smaller units which furnish you with everything you need when you are away from home. They are all spacious with plenty of closet room, amenities, free parking space (which is hard to come by around this area), and they are...

Me and my son came up for Steelers v Colts and stayed three nights. The properties are very well maintained inside and out, and have everything you need for a short or long stay. The owner, Robert, is very nice and provides his cell # for anything you need, 24/7. We stayed in unit 11 which is a two bedroom...

This is an interesting property! It consists of several older homes in a row and they have been renovated and turned into apartments for rent. Myself, my husband and our two year old stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. The apartment was really large, well decorated and had a fully supplied kitchen. The location is close to restaurants...

Well stocked and functional apartments in a residential neighborhood close to groceries and not far from shopping and good restaurants. There is also a parking lot behind two of the buildings. The buildings are old but nicely restored. This does mean that some things are small: noticeably the bath tub and the stair steps. But everything is clean and works...

I, as a student, arrived in Pittsburgh 30 years ago and I rented a one bedroom apartment in this street. 30 years later, I came to revisit Pit, as a professor retired from Cal State Univ. staying at the Friendship Suites which is located just between the two houses where I used to stay - 204 and 363 Stratford Ave....

My family stayed in a suite in Building 2 when we moved my son into his college dorm.
