Thank you for having taken the time to comment about your recent stay with us at the Days Inn Penn State. We apologize that there were no luggage carriers available for your use. We do have four carriers available for our guests, however, unfortunately it does occur that a guest takes one into their room rather than returning it to the front lobby area. I have passed your comments regarding the restaurant over to the Executive Chef and Restaurant Manager. Mad Mex is independently owned and operated, but comments from our guests at the Days Inn are invaluable to helping them improve their operations. We hope to see you again in the future.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

You cannot get a better location to stay than this Days Inn. It is convenient to downtown and the campus but far enough away to be quiet. You would not travel just to stay in this average hotel but it is a great choice if you are visiting Penn State. We did have a heavy smoke smell in our room. I called the front desk and within 3 minutes they found a new room for us that was much better.

Thank you for having taken the time to comment about your recent stay with us at the Days Inn Penn State. Our location in the "Heart of Downtown" is truly second to none. Our guests are within a block of all that downtown has to offer, shopping, dining, entertainment and the PSU campus. I am glad to hear that our front desk staff reacted quickly to your concerns. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The hotel was convenient and in walking distance to everything. The lobby is spacious and clean, the kids loved the pool. The hallways are clean and smell fresh as did the rooms. I think the rooms could use an update, same as the beds and air conditioning units. I wasn't upset because the price of the rooms was very reasonable and we weren't in them more than to sleep since it was a tournament weekend.

Room Tip: We were facing the garage so you could see your vehicles on the roof.

Thank you for having taken the time to comment about your recent stay with us at the Days Inn Penn State and for your wonderful comments. We are glad to hear that the kids enjoyed the pool. Our staff strives daily to provide a clean and comfortable hotel for our guests. We continously work on providing and updating our hotel and guest rooms with the most modern of amenities. We are currently installing LED bathroom mirros, which I must say are very cool. We hope you visit us again soon to see our latest updates.
