It's a good deal for a non-local who doesn't want to spend hours searching for a cheap ticket months from now. I picked one up for $29.99 during the Labor Day Flash Sale.

I'm closing in on the 55+ ticket deals. :lol:

We stayed here

Close to Kennywood. Has a massive insoor pool. They have a very nice Restaurant and bar. My only complaint was the lights in the hallway were dim. Other then we enjoyed our stay. We would stay there again
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

The area directly around Kennywood isn't the greatest, so I usually stay closer to Pittsburgh. I think I stayed at an Econo Lodge in Cranberry last time that was about a half hour from the park.

Last summer, I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Jefferson Hills. It was a decent, clean place, and you can buy discount Kennywood tickets through them (for ~$30, IIRC).

The Choice Hotels website shows them having laundry facilities, but when I pulled up the motel, their laundry machines were unplugged and sitting in the parking lot. The guy at the front desk said they were getting rid of the guest laundry room. That was my only gripe with the place.
Seat, don't fail me now!
