This was a good place at a good price. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Really like the breakfast nook and room was clean and comfortable. Very enjoyable stay and we will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Most of the Hotels that I've stayed at had hard beds that when I woke up in the morning I had a hard time getting out of the bed I was so stiff. This bed was comfortable not too hard and not too soft just right. I was amazed with the price especially when it comes out of my pocket... More

I had a high expectations for this place based on previous reviews, and I was not disappointed. From when I first walked in and was greeted until I left I encountered great employees who were knowledgeable and helpul. Complimentary breakfast delivered to your room each morning? What's not to love! Especially for the price, Nittany Budget goes above and beyond.... More

This property exactly met my needs. I was in town for a conference and did not want to spend an arm and a leg. It was very reasonably priced and only a short drive to the location of my conference. The front desk personnel were genuinely nice. The small convenience store on site was very nice. I loved the walking/jogging... More

My daughter and son-in-law moved to State College and I stayed at this motel for three days last week while helping them move in. It was an excellent place to stay and I plan to stay here again whenever I return to State College to visit them. The room and bathroom were clean; things were quiet. It's a well-maintained motel...

Everything from the staff to the motel room was great about the Nittany Budget Motel. From the time we checked to the time we checked out, the staff was super-friendly and obviously very proud of the NBM. The fact that we were also served breakfast daily as part of the cost, made an already very economical motel, even better. Also,... More

We visited during Arts Fest and had a wonderful stay. Staff was incredibly friendly and eager to help us with anything we needed. Affordable option (even during event weekends). Easy cab ride back from downtown (~$15 with tip). Highly recommended, low-cost option for a no frills stay in State College.

Located west of State College, the motel is easy to find, seven minutes from Penn State, and priced lower than most other properties in State College. The room was clean, and had a mini-fridge and a microwave, plus a flat screen TV and free wifi. A complimentary breakfast (coffee, juice, bagels--you choose from a small menu selection) is delivered via... More

Stayed during Arts Festival. Motel is clean, comfortable and a short drive to town. Management and housekeeping were friendly. In fact, one housekeeper verbalized her pleasure of working for the motel. Receiving coffee, bagels and juice in the "nook" was an added plus.
