We have stayed here several times in the last few years to have a comfortable and very affordable stay on Penn State football weekends. It is located right on Route 26 approximately 35 minutes away from State College and the drive is very scenic with little traffic. The motor inn is not a fancy place, but it is a quiet, peaceful place to unwind after football games. The inn sits at the top of a hill with a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. You can park right in front of your room (if your room is on the first floor) making it easy to unload and reload the car. The inn dates back to days gone by, but it must be solidly built because we have never heard a sound through the walls on either side of us. The people who are in the office are generally older, friendly and always accommodating. The coffee pot is always on and the coffee is good. Nearby there are numerous restaurants (Donna's and Mimi's sound popular although we have not been to them) and there is a Giant, Sheetz and a number of other businesses nearby. Every room is fairly large with a recliner, a desk, microwave and a decently sized mini-frig with a small freezer. Plenty of space for tailgate foods or supplies for a picnic at Raystown Lake. There is a TV with numerous channels, but don't be expecting a flat screen. Beds seem hard at first, but the sheets are fresh and clean and we sleep like logs in them. The shower is hot and refreshing. The towels are clean, but a little too small and rough for my liking. I am particular about my pillows so I always take mine along, but the pillows must have been replaced recently because I did not think they were that bad this time. There are room darkening curtains if you like to sleep late and windows can be opened for fresh air. Some curtains are showing a little age, but they work fine.
The bottom line is that the place is excellent for the price and our football weekend needs and therefore a 5 in our book. We will be back again!! Thank you for being there for us during our $$ years with two kids at PSU!
