Clean and comfortable. Great location. Modern and well equipped (tiny kitchenette, fridge, microwave). Nice big tv. Friendly staff. Fun way to get your free continental breakfast, via "nook" where your order arrives right in your room. Great price. Easy to adjust room temperature. Beds are not new but comfortable and clean. Loved it!!!

The Nittany Budget Motel is a great value option in the Penn State / State College area. Yes, the rooms are older "motel"-style, but they are kept very clean. The staff here is excellent...very friendly and helpful, and a pleasure to work with! The breakfast food delivery is also a neat touch that gives an added benefit to the place.... More

Nice little motel with clean and comfortable rooms, great value. On the edge of town, but that certainly suited as as we were just passing through and it was located right on our route.

We only gave this place a try because of the great reviews that most people gave it - we were not disappointed. We were in for Family Weekend at Penn State.

I expected way less because of such a great price. The room was VERY clean as were the motel grounds. Owners show pride of ownership. Cleaning staff superb. Check in/out easy and super friendly/professional motel guest employees. A bit dated, but couldn't find anything obnoxious and I am very much a perfectionist. Safe area, very quiet, and when you check... More

Initial stay room smelled of smoke, uninhabitable. Second time, reserved room in advance and then cancelled one week prior but was not able to get refund. Be cautious in reserving in reserving w/ this motel. Should have learned lesson and not reserved but not many places available for family weekend. Many other nicer places to stay @ state college.
