Reviewed 7 May 2013

We stayed here for our daughters graduation first weekend in May. Everyone associated with this property needs to be congratulated. They are remodeling, so don't know about all the rooms. We got one of the older rooms, but were pleasantly surprised. From the front desk, to the ladies working on cleaning your rooms, to the restaurant, it seemed that everyone was on the same page, to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. They definitely succeeded. Thanks for giving us a great place to stay at an unbelievable price.

I have stayed here for the past few years for a reunion. Though they painted the rooms. The wallpaper is peeling, the televisions are a joke and the sort is the moving of the dining area to make a smoking bar. Service was horrible in the dining room. Breakfast great bargain. Inner meal bland and sonot worth the cost.

The rooms reminded me of days gone by. 70's carpet, 80's tile and 2012 pricing for a 3 star hotel, all wrapped up in a Motel. The place would benefit from a little updating. We will book at a chain next time we are in town. Happy hour was a bargain. 4 of us had drinks and apps for under $80.

Thank you for choosing the Autoport. Being the first motel in Pennsylvania we do have rooms reminiscent of the days gone by. We appreciate the feedback and would just like to inform you that since the property has had a change of ownership we have slowly, but surely, been updating our guestrooms. Just request a newer room next time and we would be happy to accommodate! While we are disappointed in your decision to choose a chain hotel next time you visit Happy Valley, we hope to see you back at the Port Lounge!

GREAT PLACE TO HAVE WEDDING RECEPTION! Owners and staff were very attentive and accommodating, they went out of their way to make sure my daughters special day was exactly that, SPECIAL. The food was endless and delicious! Waitstaff was very professional and was great with all guest, especailly the small children that were keeping everyone on their toes. The Autoport is a great place to hold an event, fun atmosphere and food is always Yummy! The rooms were clean and rate was affordable Highly recommended by this patron.

Room Tip: rooms in first building are very spacious and close to dining area

This is a great place to go for drinks, especially during happy hour which is 5 til 7pm. The appetizers and many drinks are half price, and it's great to sit out on the patio during the summer. The waiting staff are pleasant and they are accommodating to families.

I have lived in state college for quite some time and never considering the Autoport restaurant for dining. Well, my wife convinced me that the food was very good there so we decided to go for an early saturday dinner. I was very impressed. First, they have happy hour on the weekends ( half price drinks and apps.) The food was spectacular and affordable. I had the crabcake sandwhich which was severed on a crossant with sweet potato fries!!!!!! It was soo good. My wife had sliders which were served on potato rolls with home made potato chips. outstanding!!!! The only complaint if any was that our service a tad slow. But we sat outside and the weather was nice so it wasn't that bad. This is a really good spot to grab some grub especially if you can make it during happy hour.

Room Tip: Go during happy hour.

Room looked like it was from a hotel in the 1970's, not the cleanest either (sheets were stained) and smelled so musty like the room had been closed off for 20 years! Bed was uncomfortable and pillows were flat. Heat stayed on constantly even when turned off and at 3am we woke up and it was 88 degrees in our room. Air would not turn on. Didn't want to open the window because we didn't want to hear the traffic from the highway nearby but at 5am that's what we had to do. And told guy at checkout we didn't sleep because of heat. He said, "I will have to tell maintenance" and "do you want a copy of your receipt?". Didn't even apologize let alone offer to compensate us. Should have known better, crappy dinner and bad service last time we ate there and my parents said the same thing last time they had dinner there. Totally went downhill since it was sold in 2007.

Room Tip: To get a good room, go to another hotel!!
