Wonderful room, lots of nice amenities, pleasant front desk staff, very eye appealing. Came to my rescue when my other motel decided to close down without warning. Allowed me early check in and late check out. Most grateful.

Arrived to a friendly check in.... but things went downhill from there. The room appeared clean at first. Then I noticed pink mildew in the shower. To their credit, they cleaned it when I reported it. They claimed it was leftover cleanser....no it was not. Then the remote was missing. Odd because most hotels are sanitizing them. It was found on a chair and was a sticky mess. Then at 2 am, when I turned down the bed, there was a circle of black spots, about 18 inches in diameter, on the sheet. Don't know what it was, but I certainly wasn't sleeping there. I called the front desk. The clerk said no maid service was available so he helped me switch rooms. I checked the beds but forgot to check the bathroom. When I went into the bathroom, there was a yellow stain on the floor by the toilet. I immediately made a reservation at another hotel in the area. This place has so much potential. Too bad there is no quality control on cleanliness. To their credit, my sleepless night was not billed.

Starting with the large woody lobby and sitting/eating area we were impressed by the hotel.  Room was well appointed - looks to have been renovated recently.  Staff eager to help.  Very quiet.  Comfy bed. I dont usually give hotels an excellent rating, but the COVID-inspired deal I got deserves to be rewarded

Being my first visit to this Holiday Inn Express, I didn't know what to expect. Upon arrival I discovered the hotel was completing a renovation. I was given a renovated room on the third floor. The room was nice and had plenty of space. I like the furniture choices and color choices. I also liked the small kitchenette area that included a microwave, refrigerator, and small countertop with a sink. In spite of the COV-ID situation, there was a small breakfast buffet of prepackaged items available for breakfast. I will definitely consider this HI Express when i stay in State College in the future.

I tried staying here the night before a flight home. First, there was NO parking available. The desk clerk suggested I park behind the restaurant next door. I had asked for a top floor room near the elevator. I was given a first floor room at the far end of the hall. There was no effort to accommodate my wishes whatsoever, and the desk clerk was rude when asked. The shower was filthy. There was some type of black debris all over the floor of the shower, and I had to run the water for a long time in order to try to wash most of it down the drain. There was dirt on the carpet, and the room was dated and worn. I will never stay here again. I have heard the Hampton across the street is much nicer. Avoid.
