Reviewed 23 August 2012

starting with hotel manager Andy Dowdell all staff are curtious and caring. Rooms come with comfortable mattresses , luxurious duvan quilts and pillows galore. Adjustable shower head configurations with arm extentions allow you to aim spray from well above your head Marble fixtures make bathroom feel like your room should cost twice the price. This is my go to hotel anytime Im in the state college area

We stayed in room 179, king bed and sofa sleeper. I found the bed and pillows to be very comfortable, but the sleeper sofa our daughter slept on was awful. The mattress was very thin, you could feel the bars underneath right through it. The bathtub and toilet looked like they needed replaced...very stained. I found stains on the hand towels as well. The hotel had a musty odor, but I think it was clean for the most part. My husband wasn't impressed when he went to make his morning coffee and there was a cup of cold coffee already there.

Whenever I'm in the Dubois area for business I always stay here. The room was newly remodeled and had another door that went right out to the pool. The room rate was very reasonable. I especially like the way the hotel staff treats you, it always makes my stay so much nicer.

Not sure what might be happening in Dubois to justify the cost or maybe just that you're closer to the east coast. Nevertheless the bed was very comfy with lots of space to move around in the room. Towels wonderfully soft but the drop ceiling in bathroom made even petite me feel claustrophobic. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again but would need to ask a few pertinent questions first...like does the restaurants air conditioner work, and is there any planned construction happening around the hotel?

We arrived at 6pm and had no issues checking in. We learned the on site restaurant was open till 9 so decided to eat there. Eight of us headed down to eat at 7:30. We were seated and realized that the air was humid and stuffy only to find out that it hadn't been working for a few days despite their pleas to fix it. The wait staff was quick to bring out a fan to us which just moved the steamy air around a bit. Our barmaid quickly brought out libations and kept them coming. Our waitress was also sympathetic and personable. The 6oz steak odered med/rare came out looking like shoe leather in both size and texture so back that went. The swiss burger was served with shrooms fresh from the can and just as cold. Our salad was torn iceberg with a few pieces of tomato on top with dressing from a plastic container. The meal would've been a total disappointment had we not noticed the deep fried oreo's. So eat dinner elsewhere and come back for oreo's.

We were awakened bright and early at 6am by the sound of a jack hammer outside the windows. No one mentioned this tidbit at check in. I doubt very much the folks working randomly selected the location and just started in. Then there was yelling and the hammering stopped but the sound of concrete chunks being deposited in a large metal container just made your heart leap forcing us to get out of bed.

I'd give the hotel another shot if we ever have the need to stop again in Dubois but will eat first elsewhere.

The building is older but I was pleasantly surprised! Room was very nice.very clean. Bed was comfy! Desk staff was very nice and really helpful! Stairwells smell kind of funny, but once youre into the hallways, its much better!!! Its a bit pricey since there is no breakfast included but a nice stay. And it was pet friendly--- thats a big plus in my book!!

I guess you get what you pay for - dirty linen, moldy curtains, broken iron and detritus from the previous occupants. Really uncomfortable stay. Do not reccomend.

The location is within sight of I-80, but far enough to be quiet. There are 2 gas stations and an Arby's between the interstate and the hotel. Parking was nearby and felt secure / well lighted. Desk staff was a very friendly young lady who was quick, efficient and pleasant.
The room was good sized, very clean and comfortable with a TV, a desk, a drawer unit, luggage stand, king bed and 2 nightstands. Large clean bath with the selection of typical give-aways (shampoo, etc.). Great shower with plenty of pressure and hot water!

I was only there for a a day. Wish I had more time or reason to enjoy the hotel longer.
Pricing was great and plenty of places to eat without spending a fortune

Room Tip: Be sure to visit the lounge. Great prices on everything.
