I have stayed at this hotel a few times while visiting penn state. The rooms were always clean and the people were always courteous. The beds are also comfortable and the hallways are quiet. Have always felt comfortable and safe in this hotel. One time, they accidentally assigned me to a smoking room. When I contacted the front desk about this, they had me moved within 10 minutes. The free breakfast buffet is also a nice feature. Although it does not have a large variety, it is a good place to grab a cup of coffee, cereal, and some fruit. If you require a full breakfast, there is an IHOP in the parking lot. I will be returning a couple of times during the upcoming semester (except during football weekends, when EVERY hotel in state college charges 4 times their normal rates). I'm looking forward to returning.

Arrived after booking 2 rooms for one night. Found 1 bath towel in our bathroom, a used bar of soap in a cup in the bathroom garbage can, soap bar residue on the sink, unknown plastic bag on the towel rack and the bathtub drain plug broken and sticking out of the drain. Room and bathroom were moderately clean but expected better. On a good note, room was quiet with AC running all night even on the first floor near front desk, bed was comfortable and clean. Sorry, no info on the other room other than described as poor.

I don't stay in this area much and this time thought I would try someplace different. There are any number of hotels in this college town and since I have stayed at the chain before I thought I would give it a shot. Staff very friendly, hotel clean. Linens clean and mattress firm. Breakfast area large, although the selections limited. Luggage dollies a little beat up but usable.

Room Tip: Ask for the parents rate, which I am assuming is for the college parents when visiting. The sign say...

Very old hotel,beds are very old and uncomfortable,dirty carpets,bad odor,the tub was clogged and the sink was falling in pieces,faucet was broke,the tub was dirty,I had to buy Clorox cu clean myself,Gross hotel!
The front desk clerks were very nice and professional,but the hotel is in a very bad condition.
I paid $97 to stay in this old dirty discussing place! Almost the price of Hilton.
Very disappointing experience! This hotel should be closed by the hotel inspectors.
