“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We stayed here while attending a concert on campus. It's a convenient location to campus activities. The front desk staff was very helpful and polite. The hotel could use a face lift, though. The best way I could describe it was tired. The halls had that old, stale smell and the floor outside our room needed a vacuum but our room was clean, more importantly, the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean and modern looking. The hotel offers free garage parking but keep in mind the spaces are tight and limited. Don't expect to park your full size truck comfortably.

The location is within walking distance of the Jordan center or stadium but the main street is full of bars that were loaded with rowdy college kids. But then, this was a Friday night. Would probably stay again if it was a short period of time.

We stayed here just for a night after going to a concert at Penn State. The girl who checked us in, Basia at the front desk, was super nice and helpful! A very good first impression. Our room was clean and a decent size, and the beds were surprisingly very comfortable. It's a great location too, we walked to our concert venue so we didn't have to worry about driving. The walk back was a bit more uncomfortable just because of the surrounding area having lots of bars and restaurants, and some of the people we saw were a bit rowdy. We were worried it was going to be loud at night due to this but thankfully our room was very quiet and we had no issues getting back or during the night. Definitely recommended, would stay here agin if we were in the area!

Location is perfect for access to town and campus - we didn't need our car at all. Our room was so clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Being close to bars and fraternity houses wasn't an issue because it was still very quiet inside the hotel. Will definitely stay there again.

This hotel looked very nice online,especially for the price. I was pleasantly surprised that the representation of the place was true. We checked in at 4:30 and at that time was told our room wasn't ready...that was unacceptable to me. Rooms were to be ready at 3 pm. No comps were offered for their lateness. Also when booking we asked for a room not adjoining but in the same floor since we had 2 teenagers with. This was ALSO not done. Hotel is in a great location close to everything and has a beer store and a Mexican Restaurant connected!I would stay again but will make sure they know my past issues when booking again.

Very nice hotel, VERY VERY pleasant staff! I work at the Wyndham Gettysburg and will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling to State College! I loved the rooms, cozy and clean! The front desk staff was VERY helpful and pleasant! The interior of the hotel when you first walk in is beautiful! Love the "rainforest" feel with the greenery and the waterfall. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to State College!!

Room was clean and comfortable. Structurally, a little "older" but the friendly staff and free coffee in the morning made up for it! Beds were very comfortable. You can't beat the location to downtown St. College attractions.

Room Tip: we were right near the stair well and that was a little noisy late night
