If you are looking for a nice room and are on a budget this is the place! We were looking for a last minute getaway motorcycle ride to the Pa Wilds for the weekend and based on the Trip Adviser reviews I thought we would try the Nittany Budget Motel. So Glad we did, while it may not have shampoos... More

I stayed at the motel this past weekend with my parents and my son. I had read about the motel on TripAdvisor and made my decision to book a reservation based on the reviews. I wasn't disappointed. The room was very clean. Beds were nice and I slept well. Location was good also. Not too far from downtown. I would... More

We stayed at the Nittany Budget Motel on a recommendation from a friend. Clean, nice rooms. The gentleman at the front desk, Tom, was so helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Tom!!

Stayed here two nights, on a fishing trip, at the end of October. It is on the south end of State College, but only a few minutes to downtown. It had everything we needed, very clean room, hot shower, comfortable bed, and cable tv. Staff was competent and friendly. There is a nice beer store inside the office area. And... More

The first thing my wife and I noticed on entering our room at the Nittany Budget Motel was that it was clean. For most people this is a concern due to general sanitation and health issues, as well as to keep from being "grossed out." In our case, this is critical as my wife has significant allergies which leave her... More

I found this place on here and liked how high it was rated despite its low price. I went up to State College for a non-football one-nighter, and I think this place is perfect for that, but I probably wouldn't stay there for more than one night honestly. The sheets on my bed looked like they were old because there... More

A GPS smartphone helps to find the Nittany on the south edge of State College but once you're there you'll congratulate yourself on finding the cheapest-nicest-most unique place to stay in State College. The check in desk is inside a beer case store. The arcane laws of Pennsylvania say you can only sell beer by the case, except if you... More

This place is a gem. It is out of the way, quiet and clean, unlike the hotel in the area we had left due to bugs. The kitchen has a refrigerator that had ample space for our groceries, and the bathroom size was more generous in size than average. The breakfast delivered to your room, discreetly delivered through a service... More

Older motel, but kept tidy and clean. Bath towels were a little thin, but the staff was generous with giving out as many extra as needed. The staff was always very nice and helpful, too. Quiet at night and we were in the front of the property, next to the office. Close to the Kocher Farm where our horse show... More
