“Nicely decorated but agree about the noise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We were taking a road trip and wanted to stop somewhere near Rt 80. This was abit far off the beaten track, but worth the drive for the amenities. Very nice king "suite", nicely appointed, but a bit snug, with all the furnishings...the desk chair and side chair almost didn't fit. I have to agree with the previous reviewer, the soundproofing is not great. We were there on a Tuesday night, and we could hear our neighbors and feel the vibrations and hear the neighbors above us. That said, I would still recommend it. I like the "green" touches. Breakfast was fine.

We have stayed in State College many times as our daughter is a student at Penn State. This was our first football weekend in the town and the first time we stayed at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room is spacious and comfortable (the "king suite", with a king bed, a half room divider and a sofa bed), the bathroom is new and very clean. The breakfast buffet is a bit more extensive than those at other hotels and the buffet is kept spotlessly clean. It is a few miles outside of the college town, (but not inconvenient) which actually is a good thing when 100,000 people come into the town for the weekend! We had two complaints: The minor complaint is that the pillows are small and not very supportive--we both had kind of a time getting comfortable with them. The more major complaint is seemingly at odds with what others have said and is the following: The walls seem quite poorly sound insulated. On both Friday and Saturday nights we were kept awake by other guests, hearing their conversations, their moving about their rooms and their louder exclaimations. Perhaps being a football weekend the guests feel a bit more--uninhibited, should we say?--because to be fair these guests were being quite loud, although once awake we could hear some of their more moderately toned conversations as well. I would consider staying here again because of all of the good things about it however.

We stayed here over the weekend for a Penn State football game. It is new, clean, and quiet. The breakfast is adequate (your typical hotel breakfast) and the service was fine. The pool and hot tub are a little small, but we never saw anyone else in them. The workout room looked pretty good with new machinery, as well. The location is about 3.5 miles from Penn State, which was the only real downer for me. We came for the game, and in retrospect, I wish we had stayed a bit closer to campus. However, the hotel is easy to get to and is convenient for cyclists, like ourselves. We were able to get right out onto some quiet country roads for some great riding. This is definitely not your typical Best Western; it's a step-up than any other I have stayed in. The price (for game weekends, at least) is a bit outrageous ($300/night), but I guess they have the demand and are able to raise the rates to what they are.

I travel a great deal. Stay in 3 to 4 hotels a week. Not usually a fan of the Best Western brand. Have had very bad stays at other locations. This one is GREAT! Clean,clean,clean...Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Look forward to staying again in future.

Couldn't have been happier with finding a room here for this football game weekend. Clean, convenient, and relaxing. Good breakfast and family friendly! Would love to stay again next year! Ample parking and close to the mall/shuttle.

From the moment I entered the lobby I was impressed. Beautiful decor and a very helpful and courteous staff that helped me get familiarized with area. The room was lovely, comfy and made to feel like home. In the morning the breakfast buffet was wonderful. Not just a couple of cold, hard items. There was a choice of hot and cold dishes. Not a chance of going away hungry. This motel was a great value for a reasonable price. Thanks to all!
