Situated in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh brings in visitors with its top notch universities and hospitals as well as its championship sports teams and diverse cultural attractions. Lodging options abound, but travelers in search of motel accommodations will find only a handful of establishments in the Greater Pittsburgh Area, most of which are run by Motel 6. Some of the standard features for every Motel 6 location include free morning coffee, free local phone calls, cable television service and a pets-welcome policy. Aside from these commonalities, Motel 6 branches in the Pittsburgh region have a varying assortment of additional amenities and advantages.

As an added bonus, this Motel 6 branch provides a coin-operated laundry service and free Wi-Fi Internet in every room. Other special amenities here include interior corridors and optional micro-fridges in guest rooms.
