I always judge a hotel by towels...these are worn, hard and frayed. The hotel is worn as well. Rooms are tired and need a redo with new beds and a modern heating system. Right now there are two temps, cold and really warm....bad. Lacked hot water in the morning....sad. Group events in hotel were unimpressive. Staff was interrupting to clean up before we even finished our meeting. Resteraunt was fine but sparsely staffed. Go elsewhere.

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. The hotel is clean and neat, and the rooms have more than adequate space. Having stayed here last 3 years ago, it appears as the beds and towels are getting a bit long in the tooth and need to be replaced. Overall a great value and an extremely convenient location for PSU.

Nice hotel right in the heart of downtown State College. It's an older hotel than what I'm accustomed to, but it has a lot of charm. The lobby is located on the second floor, the staff at the desk were courteous. My room was clean and fresh with the usual amenities, I was impressed at how quite it was since the hotel was packed with guest during my stay. Didn't get a chance to dine, or use any of the other services that were offered. It's an easy walk to just about anywhere in the downtown area. If you like old school and are looking for a good place to rest, then this is the place.

This was my second stay here. Unfortunately my company has meetings here that we have to stay over night with. Both times my hotel room was bad. The curtains look as though they had been sitting in a ball for many days before they were hung. The mattresses were awful! They literally jiggled like a bowl of jello. The remote didn't work unless you stood up and pointed it 2 inches from the tv. And there were water stains on the walls.
