I can see where if you had a courtyard room this might be a nice enough place to stay, but my room was dark and smelly (room 171, if management is reading) with worn-out furnishings and a horrible TV selection - unless your idea of news is what Fox puts out.
The breakfast buffet is good, but served on cheap paper and plastic, in a facility owned by a university that prides itself on its "green" credentials, in a city that is famous for its environmental creds.
It's also on the extreme far end of downtown, so anything interesting is blocks away.
No restaurant, no bar, and very little within walking distance.
If PSU wants to be serious about running a hotel - and lots of schools run excellent ones - they have to do better than this.
Not impressed, and will make sure my corporate travel desk knows what a dump this worn-out Red Lion hotel is.
