          This beautiful inn is a tradition at PennState. The rooms are a bit dated, but the inn is well maintained. The food is very good, the staff is outgoing and friendly and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in State College.

          We love this Inn! It is so great to stay on campus. So close to everything! Whiskers is a great little bar with awesome pretzels. If you love Penn State, you will love staying here! We will be back in a few months.
