“good place to stay”
Reviewed 21 September 2008

Got a room at the Colony Lodge motel few months ago and was a pleasent stay. The staff were helpful and the rooms were not too bad. It does look as tho they have made some major remodling from last year I stayed. Overall it was good for the money I paid during my son's graduation.

My friend and I stayed at the Colony Lodge near Bellefonte and State College, PA in the fall of 2007.

This was the only hotel available which should have raised a red flag. We paid $69.00 a night which really didn't seem too bad since the pictures on the site looked like it was a nice little simple no frills hotel.

Thank God we decided to bring Lysol and Lice spray, along with our own blankets and pillows! The room was very small which was okay with us. The bathroom on the other hand was so small, you could barely turn around! The tub was stained as was the sink! These were not rust stains. With a lot of elbow grease these could have been clean! ( Well, who knows how long it had been since it was cleaned. It may have been well beyond help!) The window in the bathroom was the roll-out type with no screen and no privacy. This window had to be open during showers and after because there was not an exhaust fan. The floor was grimy and had human hairs on it and I don't mean the ones from your head! ( Sorry, but it's true!) There was no room on the sink for anything but a bar of soap. The towels were also stained!

Now for the rest of the room. There was chair beside the TV which had stains on it from Goodness knows what! We are talking serious stains, not just a drop of food, water spill, etc...No, no, no! I swear it could have been a piece of evidence!
The carpet was okay, except for between the beds where it couldn't have been vacuumed for months. There was so much dust. Then, behind the TV, there was an empty box of woman's sanitary napkins, and several other papers, and of course more dust!

I know this sounds unbelievable, but It still goes on!

The outside door was all marked up and it looked like someone had kicked it a few times, it was filthy dirty!

There is an ice machine. It is way down at the end of the outside rooms and is also located outside. I felt sorry for whoever had the rooms right near it!

Here's the best part! (Worst) When I got home and emptied my ice chest, the water smelled like sewer! No kidding, it was so bad!!!!

Anyway, just to let you know I am not a super picky person, but this was just discusting. This place should be closed down!!!!!! If you are heading to this area and this is the only place left, for God's sake sleep in your car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
