I stay at hotels very frequently with work, and have stayed at this hotel many times on trips to PSU for both work and play. During the weekend of 11/15/02, I (female) had a room under MY name. I returned to my room after a night on the town to find a MAN in my room. As it turned out, the front desk gave a key to a man who did not even know my last name, the last name of the person in whose name the room was in! The lack of security in that hotel is atrocious. I will never stay there again, and have told this story to so many people in the past 5 days since my return that they'll be lucky to get any customers in the future. DON'T STAY THERE, FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY!
