“Motel is clean & comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2010

This motel is very basic lodging. The room and bathroom were small, but I was impressed with the cleanliness. I was there on a weekday and it was also quite peaceful and quiet. I slept very well. It is only minutes from the PSU campus and is very reasonably priced. I do not know if they charge more during football season but I was charged $71 for two double beds. I would definitely stay there again.

This place is perfect for an alumni weekend when you have been partying and need a bed to sleep in (even though the rates are very expensive as with everyone other hotel in State College). Its clean and basic. Don't expect anything special.

Pluses: Inexpensive, located near campus, A/C and TV work well

Minuses: Don't expect plush carpeting or fancy bathroom.

Other: Get a second floor room so headlights from parkers don' shine in room, and second floor rooms have nice, high ceilings.

Conveniently located near the Penn State campus, the Rodeway Inn delivers clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. I have stayed here on multiple occasions and leave satisfied every time. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, wireless internet in the rooms and refrigerator/microwaves. I highly advise you to stay here during your next trip to Happy Valley.

The Rodeway Inn fit all my travel needs perfectly. It is low-priced, about a 15 minute walk from Penn State University, my room had a microwave, refridgerator, cable, free wireless internet and there are plenty of places to get food just down the road.

The thing I appreciated most was that they let me check out late because my flight didn't leave until late afternoon and I did not rent a car. They were very accommodating to my needs, I stayed two nights and they kept my room very clean. They even have a continental breakfast (muffins, juice and coffee).

The Rodeway Inn really exceeded my expectations, I would recommend it highly.

  • Liked — Free internet, cleanliness and allowed me to check out late
  • Disliked — Continental breakfast

Small, decent, no-frills hotel that is close to all of the action in State College. Our room was very small but was clean, except for the fact that one pillowcase had a stain on it. You can't expect much for the price, however. It's not luxury, but it was fine for one night.

  • Liked — Price, Location

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2007

Lovely little place to stay! Room had microwave and refrigerator; second floor has enclosed walkway outside rooms, and windows near cathedral ceilings like skylights! The shower was great with wonderful water pressure, there was room for my CPAP on the bedside table, "real" tissues and a full length mirror. Finally a hotel with a thermostat that made the temperature comfortable. The tv is tiny, small bathroom with minimal counterspace, but wireless internet and a
simple continental breakfast fulled MY needs!
