I've stayed here a couple times and have been impressed each time. The staff are all very personable and friendly. The rooms are comfortable although are not "modern" which I think adds to their charm. The housekeeping staff cleaned my room thoroughly for a new arrival and did an awesome job cleaning for a stay over. The rooms are very... More

The rooms are disgusting. The bathroom was full of centipedes. But that's not the worst of it! I made the mistake of eating in the restaurant on Saturday 6/30. The waitstaff was rude and the service slow. I paid with a bank card/credit card. When I checked my online bank account the following Monday-- they charged me not once but... More

Please, please,please do yourself a favor and pay attention to the reviews you read about this place. They ARE accurate. I didn't believe it could be as bad as it sounded or was rated but after staying here during Memorial Day weekend, it is TERRIBLE. The rooms are ancient, sheets dirty, the bath towels were worse and the beds.....I don't... More

We stayed here for our daughters graduation first weekend in May. Everyone associated with this property needs to be congratulated. They are remodeling, so don't know about all the rooms. We got one of the older rooms, but were pleasantly surprised. From the front desk, to the ladies working on cleaning your rooms, to the restaurant, it seemed that everyone... More

I have stayed here for the past few years for a reunion. Though they painted the rooms. The wallpaper is peeling, the televisions are a joke and the sort is the moving of the dining area to make a smoking bar. Service was horrible in the dining room. Breakfast great bargain. Inner meal bland and sonot worth the cost.

The rooms reminded me of days gone by. 70's carpet, 80's tile and 2012 pricing for a 3 star hotel, all wrapped up in a Motel. The place would benefit from a little updating. We will book at a chain next time we are in town. Happy hour was a bargain. 4 of us had drinks and apps for under... More

Thank you for choosing the Autoport. Being the first motel in Pennsylvania we do have rooms reminiscent of the days gone by. We appreciate the feedback and would just like to inform you that since the property has had a change of ownership we have slowly, but surely, been updating our guestrooms. Just request a newer room next time and... More

This is a great place to go for drinks, especially during happy hour which is 5 til 7pm. The appetizers and many drinks are half price, and it's great to sit out on the patio during the summer. The waiting staff are pleasant and they are accommodating to families.

I have lived in state college for quite some time and never considering the Autoport restaurant for dining. Well, my wife convinced me that the food was very good there so we decided to go for an early saturday dinner. I was very impressed.

Room looked like it was from a hotel in the 1970's, not the cleanest either (sheets were stained) and smelled so musty like the room had been closed off for 20 years! Bed was uncomfortable and pillows were flat. Heat stayed on constantly even when turned off and at 3am we woke up and it was 88 degrees in our... More
