I stayed here for two nights over a weekend in December. The room was clean and very comfortable. The shower was nice and hot! Coffee was good and breakfast was very welcome (breakfast included bagels or Danish and choice of juice, as well as coffee). The bottle shop also had sodas and snacks and was convenient. I would stay here... More

Stayed hear several weekends ago and was very pleased. The room was extremely clean and the staff great! The breakfast (especially coffee) delivered to the room in the morning is unheard of at this price point. As a PSU alum I travel to State College at least once a year and this has been by far the best value I've... More

We stayed at this motel in October and we are coming back this month because we had such a wonderful experience. The room was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. This is going to be our place to stay when we visit State College.

This is definitely a no-frills accommodation. On the bright side, the staff was very helpful and accommodating, and a breakfast of a Danish or bagel with coffee, tea or juice was included and delivered to our room at our chosen time in the morning. Be forewarned that the Danish is the pre-packaged, sugary pastry you would get from a vending... More

I have always stayed at this hotel while visiting my family. My last stay was terrible. I could stay at a hotel 20 miles away and pay the same price with breakfast included and not have the problems I had at this hotel. The phone lines were not working and not fixed during my 3 days stay, the bedside light... More

#1 out of 26 hotels/motels in State College when we made our reservation for a wedding in the area! Well I see now it is #8... On the negative side, it smelled musty and the toilet was broken.

We have stayed here many years now when in the area for PSU game. Our issue is that they never update. Bathroom is in bad condition. Walls have holes/rips in the wallpaper.

My wife and I stayed here for one night, just as a stopover en route to elsewhere. The motel is on the south side of town, located on the edge of an office park a good distance from any freeway, so it is well away from most road noise. (The downside: You have to drive farther from the freeway to... More
