Our dream was to stay at the historic Nittany Lion Inn for our event weekend but it was booked. Both the Nittany and The Penn Stater Conference Center are handled through the same reservations service, so we got a room at the Penn Stater. The Penn Stater is fresh and new, staffed by happy folks and very many students, some of whom are just learning the ropes. There was free coffee in the lobby in the morning, which was much appreciated. The facility obviously was designed to have a convenient main front entrance, with a circular drive but strangely, it's blocked off. Guests have to drive around to an inconvenient back entrance. It's a long walk to the front...was an even longer walk to our room (at what seemed the farthest room in the place) and to the restaurant and pub. It's also a long haul to campus. Shuttles were available our weekend but we chose to drive in, with no problem parking. So, positives: clean, new, with lots of space. Cons: a huge distance to campus, so large that it's impersonal and you'll likely face a long stroll to and from your room unless you request otherwise.
