A basic, old-fashioned motel--the type my family used to stay in when I was a child Nothing fancy but more than adequate. The room and bathroom were clean. There was a flat-screen TV with cable. And the price even included a continental breakfast, delivered to your room. Although the motel is a little way out of town, there is a... More

I returned to this motel while on business in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is easy to find, and is close to Penn State campus. Room was clean, with microwave and fridge. Free wifi was sufficiently fast for my needs. Continental breakfast was delivered at my choice of time thru a cute (locked) little door and the... More

This place is a few miles off Main St but has great accommodations, clean & a cool little continental breakfast of your choice delivered to your room in the morning & a great restaurant next door. Clean & great rates.

Budget hotel. "Breakfast" was delivered to our door through an odd arrangement reminiscent of feeding time at the asylum, and, although we "ordered" it by filling out a "menu", consisted of cellphane-wrapped quickie-mart pastries. The room appeared clean, but underlying the air-freshener scent, was a decidely unpleasant smell, but, hey, this is a budget hotel in a college town, so... More

Well, maybe not entirely hidden, but a gem nonetheless. I learned of this motel via online reviews. It sounded like it might be a cut above your average bargain brand motel, and it did not disappoint in that respect. I stayed mid-week in what I assume to be the "off season" (summer, school is out) and the facility was not... More

I was going to see my son at PSU (April 2015).

I usually stay at another hotel while in town but they were full. However, they referred me to this motel as they indicated they are reasonable, very clean and nice sized rooms, and they offer a small/limited hand delivered continental breakfast of your choice. It took a second to figure out where the reservations/motel office was as it doubles as... More
