“Best Room in State College”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

If your going to State College to drop your kid at any of the State College Camps or for a visit to State College. This is the place to stay. Beer Store on premise. Every Import you can imagine. Clean Room. Wonderful knowledgeable staff. You feel like your staying with family. The breakfast is fun who delivers Bagels and Coffee to your room. I would think this would be a great motorcycle trip destination as well.

Room Tip: Rooms in back are quiet Nice view of Sunset over Cornfield

Most of the Hotels that I've stayed at had hard beds that when I woke up in the morning I had a hard time getting out of the bed I was so stiff. This bed was comfortable not too hard and not too soft just right. I was amazed with the price especially when it comes out of my pocket and with the complimentary breakfast that was delivered to the room. This was defiantly a Great Value

I had a high expectations for this place based on previous reviews, and I was not disappointed. From when I first walked in and was greeted until I left I encountered great employees who were knowledgeable and helpul. Complimentary breakfast delivered to your room each morning? What's not to love! Especially for the price, Nittany Budget goes above and beyond. I would recommend this place to any friends and/or family who visit.

This property exactly met my needs. I was in town for a conference and did not want to spend an arm and a leg. It was very reasonably priced and only a short drive to the location of my conference. The front desk personnel were genuinely nice. The small convenience store on site was very nice. I loved the walking/jogging paths around the property. As a woman traveling alone, I always felt safe. The small continential breakfast was a nice touch. The room was very clean and comfy and the bathroom actually sparkled.

My daughter and son-in-law moved to State College and I stayed at this motel for three days last week while helping them move in. It was an excellent place to stay and I plan to stay here again whenever I return to State College to visit them. The room and bathroom were clean; things were quiet. It's a well-maintained motel and the persons in charge are attentive and caring. There's even a free continental-type breakfast available delivered to a "breakfast nook" that opens up right into your own room. In all my years of staying at motels that's a wonderful feature I'd never seen before. There's a convenience store within short walking distance, that has a Dunkin' Donuts. The price is more than reasonable. I had never been to State College before and was very glad I found this place.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we’re doing! Our breakfast is definitely a favorite amenity at the Nittany Budget and we are pleased that you enjoyed it. We think it is a wonderfully unique feature in the growing landscape of cookie-cutter hotels. We are glad that you found us to be economical without sacrificing quality! Our staff will be very pleased to hear your kind words about them! Good luck to your daughter and son-in-law in their new home and we look forward to seeing you back soon!

Everything from the staff to the motel room was great about the Nittany Budget Motel. From the time we checked to the time we checked out, the staff was super-friendly and obviously very proud of the NBM. The fact that we were also served breakfast daily as part of the cost, made an already very economical motel, even better. Also, the fact that they were pet friendly really made this the only place that I will stay when I am in State College! Keep up the great work, folks!

Room Tip: Probably rooms behind the hotel were more quiet - less car traffic and foot traffic. Very safe and...
