“One half hour to Woodward Camp”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We choose this hotel because it was close to the Woodward camp in Woodward PA. Down the street is the Nitany Mall and there are many other stores and restaurants near the hotel. We had 3 kids with us so the double queen room worked out great because there was a pull out couch in the room. plenty of room! nice accomodations

Thank you so much for the great reviews of our hotel. Our queen suite is great when traveling with 3 kids. The Nittany Mall and plaza across the street from us is nice to have for places to eat and things to do close to the hotel.

If you are traveling to visit Penn State then this is a very comfortable, affordable, and convenient location. Our experience was unremarkable in that everything met expectations for comfort and service. It's not the Taj Mahal but you don't expect that when staying at the BW. And everything was well-maintained and good shape. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom very nice, the room spacious, etc. And the campus is an easy 10 minute drive away. All and all, I would highly recommend this location.

Have stayed here 8 times in the past 6 months for work. Went to stay tonight with my significant other for a getaway and it didn't go well. There was a large group of youth baseball players staying on property with their families. Well it was loud, people running up and down the halls; standing with their doors open yelling to each other; generally people not being courteous of other people who wanted to sleep, just all in all not a relaxing time. To give the front desk credit they tried to change our room but had none available. They did offer us a refund on our room with a profuse apology but nothing else. A future free night stay offer would have been appropriate. They girl at the front desk was super nice about it and I kind of felt bad for her because there wasn't much she could do about the ruffians. I may continue to go back because it's my favorite place to stay in State College; however, I will be checking ahead on events that could be booked there. I did request a room on the top floor away from the elevators when I reserved but when I checked in at 2:00 PM I was told there were no rooms available on either of the top two floors.

Room Tip: Request 4th floor away from the elevators and follow up before checking in.

Thank you for the advice to us and future guests. We have been trying harder to keep teams together away from other guests. We had addressed these noisy guests multiple times, however we will review policies better for the future.

Our family recently stayed at this hotel for our 3 day family reunion. Not only was I impressed with the staff help making the reservations, but also with the information provided of the area for planning purposes (as I live out of state and had never been to State College). I had nothing but kudos from my family for their stay at the hotel, and for the quality of service. Our needs were met, the kids enjoyed the pool, and I was very happy with our experience at the hotel.

I would gladly stay at this hotel again, and recommend it to friends and family.

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at this Best Western, which is located off of Benner Pike (on Shiloh Rd), approx. 2.5 miles from downtown State College. I had obtained a very good Priceline deal for two nights, so for the price paid, we were quite pleased - especially since this hotel and in fact probably every hotel in the SC area was sold out for Arts Fest. This BW hotel is clean, the employees are pleasant, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the hotel is located in a very quiet area. Our room was very clean, nicely appointed with a bureau, flat screen t.v., small fridge and microwave, coffee maker, etc., and our bed was very comfortable. The pillow selection on the bed was nice, with comfortable pillows. For a budget/moderate hotel, they have one of the best breakfast buffets I have seen (make your own waffles and pancakes, dry and hot cereal, apples/bananas, yogurt, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, juices and an assortment of pastries/muffins/bagels. In addition, they serve scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes and a breakfast meat which varies from daly to day). The breakfast room and "common areas" are a bit small when the hotel is filled to capacity, but they did open up a conference room to serve as another breakfast area, and there is a small, outdoor patio with some tables and chairs. There is a small indoor pool (warm but could use some upkeep, especially the tiles around the water line and water clarity), a hot-tub/spa, and a small workout room. This hotel only has one elevator, and that might be an issue to some, but the hotel is also only 4 stories tall, so we walked to the 3rd floor several times. The room itself is designed to be ecologically friendly, requiring an electronic keycard to be placed in a wall control to turn on lights/electricity, heating and cooling. This would not be an issue if it weren't for the fact that the heat or A/C is slow in responding (we stayed here before in the Winter and found the same issue, but with the heat). Although we are in favor of saving electricity and being environmentally conscious, we left one of our keycards in the wall control to keep the A/C on at 72F. This is July, and we did not want to come back to a very warm room on a very hot day, and wait for a system that takes too long to cool off. I believe the control is supposed to keep the room at a preset temperature (without the keycard kept in the slot), but, upon checkin the room felt quite a bit warmer than the 74F that the control unit was displaying. Other than that small issue, this is a nice hotel and well located for our purposes. Would use again if I am able to secure a good deal.

This is an odd review. I am writing it hoping that management will see it and buy vacuum attachements for their cleaning staff. When checking into our room we had cookie crumbs stuffed into our air conditioner from a previous guest. The cleaning staff tried with what they had and the girl at the front desk tried with a broom but they could not get all of it out. The cleaning staff said they did not have attachements for their upright vacuum cleaners (and when I looked at the dust behind the TV stand I could tell this was true). So I am hoping Management will see this and buy vacuums with tools. The staff is very good and they try really hard but they lack the tools to do a five star cleaning job.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on th etop floor or you will hear the guests above you moving around.

We do a deep cleaning with a different vacuum. We discussed your review this week and it is something that we are looking into more as an everyday cleaning. Typically, this is not done daily but due to reviews from guests like yourself, we are always willing to make changes for the better. If you would like to contact us directly, please feel free.
Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit with us.
