Let's start with the good part. They traded our room with 2 regular beds to a queen size. Now the rest. You truly get what you pay for. Air conditioning barely working and mounted so high in the wall you couldn't reach controls anyway. Confusing switches and several controls for heat and AC. One would need a tutorial. Lots of...

This is not the most glamorous hotel, but it will do its purpose. Nothing fancy inside, but it is downtown and has what you need: a shower and bed. They do offer free breakfast, which is donuts, coffee and water. You get one parking spot per room, as it gets full on busy weekends. It is hard to get a... More

Booked this motel for the PSU-MD game Halloween weekend. Was told by the owner upon booking a month in advance that at that time, there was a 2 night minimum but may be dropped to 1 night closer to the date of the game. Checked in on Friday, Oct 31st and asked if we could check out the next morning,... More

This motel has a great location for State College, especially if walking around campus and the "main drag" is the primary purpose of your visit. It has been 20+ years since I've stayed in a motel and it took a bit to adjust (not used to the windows and door leading directly outside where people can walk by, etc.). This... More

Just spent parents weekend at penn state and nothing but good things to say about the imperial motor inn. Not expecting much for the price but rooms were clean, beds comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. For a small budget hotel the location is ideal right at the corner of university drive steps from campus and downtown. The owners... More

You get what you pay for. It was a bit stale-smelling inside, but other than that, I saw zero creepy-crawlers, we didn't have our valuables stolen, and the personnel were not as soul-less as others have reported. One complaint: the bathroom could have been the one in Saw, without the murder scene or the torture devices. The shower leaked and... More

While other hotels were charging $150 or $200 and most had no vacancy, picked up a room for $69 a night, a 1000 feet from my kids dorm, on move in weekend. Now that's value. The hotel is old but it's clean and basically in good shape. Only issue I could find is holes in the bedspread almost like cigarette... More

I was in State College for an overnight stay while my daughter was staying on PSU's campus for orientation. I didn't spend much time in the room, but while I was there, it was serviceable. Each room has cable and large screen TVs. I was also told there is wifi, though I did not have any devices to try it... More
