This motel on North Atherton is warm and friendly. Rooms are well furnished and clean. The motel is family run and staff cares for the well being of visitors. During off peak season prices are relatively low. Heating is a little noisy. They have free tea and coffe in the lobby. There is no possibility for breakfast but just in... More

Soap was still on my skin that I could feel it drying my skin. I decided to stop by planet fitness and shower to get ride of the... More

My daughter attended a 2.5 day volleyball camp at PSU and I decided to stay in town with my other daughter instead of driving 7 hours round trip on a Wed and then again on Friday. Did not make reservations ahead of time and luckily The Stevens was able to accommodate us. We did have to switch rooms the 2nd... More

Found this motel when we were looking for an affordable place to stay in State College. Our room was clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable. Rooms include a microwave and refrigerator. The restaurant next door serves a great breakfast. There is a trail nearby which is convenient for a walk or run. There is also a small playground at... More

This is a great little place to stay off campus at a reasonable price. The owners are extremely nice and accommodating - I had to ask for a few things while I was there, and they were very gracious, polite, and prompt. The free wifi works very well, the rooms are clean, if maybe a bit old-looking. While it's no... More

Looking for fancy? Go somewhere else. Looking for a solid, clean, comfy family-run experience? Book the Stevens! Great location on Atherton, right next to the Waffle House (!), down the road from Trader Joe's, Wegman's, Hi-Way Pizza and a wealth of other great food choices. Friendly service, spotless room, nice and quiet and away from partying students, the Stevens continues... More

That's about it. This is everything a Motel should should (M, motor hotel) Very friendly, very homey feel. Good location, easy to find. This is the sort of place that locals direct their friend to. And it's cute. :)

This is a classic no frills motel with a great price for State College. If you are just looking for a quiet night's sleep in a comfortable bed this is the place. Room was clean. Windows open for fresh air. Visit the Waffle Shop next door for a terrific breakfast!

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
