Not much to look at from the outside, but here's what I got for $64 (incl. tax): Clean, quiet (be sure ask for a room on the back side, away from the road) room with King bed, small couch with pullout bed, spacious desk with comfortable desk chair and lots of outlets for my electronics, fast Wi-Fi, 32" flat screen...

HVAC unit that allows you to control weather you want heat, ac, or none anytime of year. Good bathroom counter space. Flat screen TV.... More

We have to come in to State College for Indoor States and this is perfect for us. Clean. Quite. Polite. You can not beat the price either. Breakfast comes to you in a cute cubicle in the wall. I just chuckle when I open it. Another plus is the frig and microwave. I am sure we will back again next... More

I've stayed here dozens of times over the years. It's a fine budget spot to stay. Clean rooms, friendly staff, easy access and a fun if rather spartan breakfast. It's very reasonably priced, and it's very hard to do better, esp for the money. Good wifi. I always stay around the back so I don't get much noise from the... More

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.

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
