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

Clean room, lots of parking, easy drive to campus, breakfast delivered to your door, very reasonably priced ... value plus. My comments are based on my own experience and are my personal opinion of this hotel. I will stay here again.

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

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
