Went up to Penn State for Parents and Families Weekend. The town was packed and the local hotels really jacked up the prices of the rooms. It was difficult to even find vacancies in town. We booked this hotel that was a 50 minute ride away from State College. While the local Hampton Inn wanted to charge us $200 - $300 per night, this Hampton Inn charged us $116 per night (AAA rate). What a great value. Free high speed wireless internet in our room, complimentary hot/cold breakfast, heated indoor pool and really comfortable bedding.
The hotel was built in 2007 and sports an attractive decor with nicely maintained facilities. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom had a marble topped vanity, ample hooks and a good array of amenities. The room also had a microwave, mini refrigerator, a lapdesk and an ergonomic desk. The bed was quite comfortable and we slept well. The kids and hubby enjoyed making their own waffles at breakfast. The area was clean and everything was well stocked. I was happy with the fresh fruit salad, my kids were thrilled with the sausage and cereal and my hubby was pleased with the baked goods. We even got to enjoy a swim in the pool with out youngest daughter and even though it wasn't that hot it was clean and decently maintained.
The only drawback to the stay turned out to be some odd technical difficulties. The TV in the fitness center kept shutting off while I was on the treadmill. After I called the front desk, the manager on duty told me it was "some sort of a mechanical glitch". It was frustrating to try and re-start the TV when it kept turning off. Getting me to work out is hard enough without having to try and figure out technical problems! Then, the telephone in our hotel room randomly rang throughout the night startling the whole family out of our slumber. Again, when I approached the manager on duty, she told me that they had no way of tracking (due to privacy laws) to see whether the calls were from a misbehaving child or a mechanical problem. Even though they were very friendly and courteous I didn't get the impression that either of these problems were going to be addressed anytime soon.
I must say that this hotel offers great value and if you are in the area you won't be disappointed...but just don't be surprised if you encounter some glitches.
