The room we had wasnt a dump, but it was an older place. There were no bugs, the place could have been cleaner. The room was big, the bed was comfortable although there was something nasty all over the blanket, but I bring our own stuff so what I took off the bed stayed in the corner till we left.... More

DO NOT STAY HERE FOR ANY REASON!!!! A friend of mine and I were looking for an inexpensive place to stay to go to the Penn State game in State College for the weekend. The price would be the only thing positive to say. I must also add I don't typically take the time to write any type of review... More

Stayed here Sept. 19, 2013. Was traveling to PA, got tired and decided to get a hotel at 11 p.m. The bathtub was covered in black sludge, but we were too exhausted to change rooms. Was told the next a.m. that the hotel couldn't give any discount or refund because we booked through bringfido.com. A bringfido rep worked for 2... More

Head of housekeeping has a poor attitude, with a "pass the buck/blame" mentality. Even when she's at fault, she's not. She also seems to resent doing her job, such as fixing key cards that stop working. There were ants in the bathroom when we arrived. Several of the chairs were broken, which she claimed was all new furniture. Her definition... More

I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the last two years. I find it to be safe and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms open directly to outside which is convenient when you are traveling with pets. I had to change the date on my original reservation and confirmed that the changes had been made... More

What a dump. The room was dirty. Weird people hanging around. A lot of bikers and truckers leaving at 5:00 AM. Very loud. The room smelled. No ice machine. If you wanted ice you had to go to the front desk and ask for it. The front desk is in a totally different building abot 200 feet away. Staff was... More

...then this is the place for you. The pictures on the site are misleading at best. It may be a blessing that smell-o-vision hasn't be invented yet because that alone would discourage you from booking a room here. Really enjoyed finding a cupcake stuck to the carpeting next to the sofabed. And by "stuck" I mean plastered. The sofa bed... More

The motel was very run down and did not look anything like the picture on the website. The room was very damp and smelled like mildew and the carpeted floor was wet. The bathroom smelled like pee. Luckily we only had to spend a few hours the room to sleep. I wish I would have spent a few extra dollars... More

I stayed here for two nights and had absolutely no complaints. The room was quite large and well furnished with a table and 2 chairs, a nice desk with a nearby outlet, lots of lights and a downright HUGE counter beside the sink. It is so nice to have a place to spread out all the toiletries. There was also... More
