I recently stayed at the Quality Inn University Center in Pittsburgh, PA while visiting to attend some Pirates games. My first impression of the hotel was the friendliness of the hotel clerk who's name I believe was Amber. She answered questions I had regarding the surroundings and the bus stops in the area as I didn't have a vehicle. All...

Everything was good. The hotel is a little outdated but clean. I appreciated the free parking! We were able to walk to the PIttsburgh Campus. It was my first time staying in the city; since the price was right, I would stay again.

A good part of my review can be in Sam M of Ohio from July 2014. We moved to another apartment for my daughter and found the freshmen were moving into their dorms the same weekend.

Went to Pittsburgh on a college tour with my son. I picked this hotel because of price and somewhat close location to Carnegie Mellon Univ.

The lobby Is clean and inviting, but the elevators smell like rotting food as well as the hallways. The hotel Is dated but the carpeting and beds are new and very clean.
