There is nothing fancy about the rooms but they are clean, comfortable, include a small refrigerator and microwave, and are half the cost of similar chain motels. Parking is right by the room. The location is convenient and the outside of Steven's is very nice--beautiful flowers make it even better. I enjoyed sitting outside our room on the small porch-like... More

Very cool little motel. We had to stay for a week while we waited to move into our home here in State college. People are friendly, very accommodating, clean. I would recommend this to anyone. Owners were on site everyday. Only place we found that could accommodate 6 people in one room.

This weekend was our third time in two years staying at the Stevens motel and once again Jeff and his team exceeded our expectations. We stayed in our "normal room" and everything was perfect. Room cleanliness is spectacular, comfort is spot on and value is as always exceptional. Include the added benefit of the family friendliness from Jeff and his... More

Friendly staff took my phone reservation and was very helpful in choosing the room configuration. We received a warm welcome when we arrived. The double double with double hide-a-bed had plenty of room, even with the sofa unfolded.

Stayed for one night here, as I thought it will be a basic, far out motel. The guy at the front desk provided me with amazing service. He was professional, caring and helpful. All of his recommendations and tips were found to be correct. The room is basic, but clean and tidy with all the required appliances. The bed and... More

As a single Mom, traveling alone to visit my daughter at PSU, I always felt the need to stay in a big chain that cost a fortune! After my daughter moved to an off campus apartment that was right around the corner from The Stevens Motel, I decided to check it out online. I have stayed there 2 times now... More

We have been staying at the Stevens Motel for more than 12 years. It is always immaculate which is not always true of the best of chain hotels. The staff is wonderful and friendly. They upgraded the beds and they are as comfortable as at any hotel at which we stay (and we stay way too many nights a year... More

I have been coming to the State College area for several years now to hike and to visit with friends and each time I was planning a visit, I tried to get in to the Stevens Motel - but they were always booked. This time, I chose a non-football game weekend and was rewarded with a very nice experience. The... More

The Stevens is a cute time capsule of a motel just 1 mile from Penn State University. Its hosts are genial, the room decor is quaint "1950's motor inn" and eat-off-the-floor clean, the location is near some really great restaurants, and the price is reasonable. This is strictly a motel, so don't go looking for breakfast buffets, swimming pools, or... More
