I usually don't stay in Rodeway Inns, because their standards don't meet mine. However, a six day stay at this Rodeway proved me wrong, at least about this property. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were comfortable, with fluffy fresh towels every day. The place was quiet at night, in spite of this was alumni weekend for... More

Big stain on bedspread. Yuck. I took it off the bed and put it in drawer. Room stank like cat urine. Yuck. Manager was very nice but I was glad to leave. This was a last minute reservation for Friday night of Arts Fest so not many places available. Next time we will just go for the day if this... More

As others have mentioned this is an older property that could be updated. But it is very well kept and very clean. Room was a decent size and included large flat screen TV, refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom was on the small side but sufficient and well-maintained. Employees that I dealt with were courteous and helpful. I did not try the... More

This hotel is quite old but it is one of the cleanest hotels you will ever find. VERY, VERY CLEAN!! Amazingly clean. Adequate, though small rooms, flat screen TVs with lots of channels, well located with food, shopping and college within walking distance. Friendly staff. Skip breakfast, tiny area, few offerings.

The rooms at this Rodeway Inn look rather tired; the place obviously hasn't been updated for many years. The bathroom was cramped (with a tiny shower of the size you often find in Europe) and the flat screen TV was quite small, but the bed was comfortable and the place was reasonably clean. The staff were friendly and welcoming; however,... More

Good location and clean place. Breakfast sucks. The cheapest and minimum stuff. just muffins and coffee and juice. Its better to go to fast food chain and have something else. Even sitting area is so small.

I stayed here the night before a trail race at Rothrock State Park. The main reason I chose the hotel was the budget price ($92 with tax). I wasn't looking for anything fancy as I was just going to be there for less than 10 hours, and 8 of that would be devoted to sleep. Much to my surprise, the... More

The roadway is budget lodging in State College. On a positive, the hotel was clean and quiet but we did have to spent $350.00 for a tiny room and spent as little time as possible inside the depressing room. As per State College tradition, hotel room rates inflate 3x or 4x normal for "event weekends" such as football or graduation.... More

Nice stay, quiet area, room was clean, bed was comfortable. Location was perfect,close to everything. Room had everything I needed, clean bathroom, fridge, cable flat screen TV. I was there to pick up my Daughter from school, 5 minute ride to her apartment which was perfect. If you like shopping, the stores are close by along with restaurants.

For an older hotel, it is very well kept. Clean, and hotel personnel were very nice and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again if needed. Was able to park right in front of room, easy access and location was decent.
