We stayed here for the first time last wknd for Arts Fest and to visit my niece at PSU, and selected this Sleep Inn basically due to its decent tripadvisor reviews and the fact that it was $100 less than any other hotel we'd looked at. I wasn't expecting much and ended up being pleasantly surprised.
While not close enough to walk, the hotel isn't at all far from campus - less than a 5 minute drive. Lobby and common areas are nicely decorated and comfortable. The room was clean and beds were comfy. Others have mentioned the small bathroom but at least the shower/toilet area had a fan which a lot of hotel bathrooms don't - something that always baffles me.
The always-available free coffee and cookies were actually really good -- and so was the free breakfast. Many hotels in this category offer a limited free continental breakfast but the Sleep Inn had scrambled eggs, sausage, a selection of cereals, fruit, yogurt, bagels, instant oatmeal and pre-packaged danishes/muffins. The two eating areas were well kept and continuously restocked by a very friendly staff member. It was much more and tastier than we'd expected. Even the orange juice was really good.
All the staff we encountered - whether at the front desk, housekeeping or just passing in the hallway - we very friendly and courteous. Service like that goes a long way these days, in my opinion.
The only downside is that the walls seem to be paper thin. I'm not a light sleeper but I woke up several times during the night and early morning because I could hear the people in the next room who were not being particularly loud. The AC unit and mini-fridge were really loud, too, which woke me up each time they kicked on.
Other than that though, this was a great hotel for the price.
(A TGIFridays is right next to the hotel, too.)
