“Nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Never stayed in a Days Inn before, but was pleasantly surprised by this one. The rooms are great, and the location can't be beat. Not much to complain about, and a terrific value. Only minor thing that was a bit confusing, was the parking. They have barely any spots on the top parking space which leads to confusion on where to park underneath in their other parking lot. This is minor, and very easy to forget when you had an enjoyable stay like mine. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for having taken the time to comment on your recent stay at the Chairman's Award winning Days Inn PennState. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our location right in the heart of downtown, as well as our recent room renovations. They took some time, but came out very nice! Although our top parking deck doesn't hold all 186 spots, we do have a lot directly below it that has room as well as under the hotel. They are all located right next to each other directly behind the hotel with access to the hotel from each area. Thank you again for the kind words and we look forward to your next visit!

Seemingly haphazard design, with lots of steps to negotiate and a mazy route from the car park to the reception. Room was comfortable enough and the location was ideal, right next to the main street through State College. Shared areas could do with updating and no breakfast included in the price, so was quite expensive for what you got. Would probably look to stay elsewhere first on any return visit.

Thank you for having taken the time to comment on your recent stay with us at the Chairman's Award winning Days Inn Penn State. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our recent room renovations as well as our location in the "Heart of Downtown". It really is ideal, especially if you need to get to Penn State campus, or just head downtown for food and drink. We do have a couple of entrances on the back side of our hotel, coming in from the parking deck, so our guests don't have to walk all the way around to the front, making it easy to access the elevators or find the front desk. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again in the future.

This location is having problems with people booking on line. For some reason they are aware of this problem but seem to make light of it. When booking it makes your reservation for Albuquerqe, New Mexico. This glitch in their system left us without a room for the night. They said we could get a room the next night but would have to pay their system price, they would not honor the price we booked online for. We wanted to stay here because you can walk to downtown from here but we had to find other accommodations. The Manager apologized and called the New Mexico location to cancel our booking and told us they said, " Who is it now?" He said others have had this same problem. Very poor customer service.

I have stayed at this hotel several times now, for an annual conference held at Penn State University. Location is ideal - better to stay here than at a more expensive location where you have to worry about driving in and parking on campus. In this most recent stay, I am impressed by the upgrades in the rooms. Previously, rooms were just okay, or even borderline dumpy. There has been a concerted effort to enhance the hotel rooms, with better carpeting, furniture and bathroom amenities.

Initially I experienced a bit of a hiccough in customer service at the hotel, however the staff began immediate efforts to contact me, even before I had arrived home! The manager I spoke with took care of my concerns effectively and in short order.

Thank you! I will be back!

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our location in the "Heart of Downtown" as well as our room upgrades! You can definitely see the changes with the $2million we put into room renovations. I'm also very happy to hear we were able to care of that hiccup. Thank you again for the review and we look forward to your next visit!

This place is ideally situated in the downtown area. Open or covered parking with elevator access. Clean, decent rooms with good working WiFi everywhere (why is that so much to ask in so many places?). Price was very good for this normally busy college town. Atrium is nice. Pool and fitness area kind of lame. Attached Mexican restaurant is a lively student hangout, even on a Monday night in June.

Thank you for having taken the time to comment about your recent stay with us at the Chairman's Award winning Days Inn Penn State. Thank you for the kind words. Our housekeeping department works very hard to make sure all rooms are clean and comfortable for all of our guests. We did upgrade our WiFi a couple of months ago, so there better service throughout the property. We've added 4+ routers in each hallway so there is never a problem obtaining high-speed internet. The restaurant MadMex is always a good time to hang out or grab a quick bite to eat. Thank you again for the review and we look forward to your future visit!
