This place is by far the worst I have ever seen or stayed at throughout the country. Do not be fooled by other reviews you may have seen online. The only reason I stayed here was because I secured some football tickets last minute and no other place was available ( 1 month out). I should have known that in... More

We recently stayed here and it is just what we needed for our short stay. The room we stayed in was modern and clean! :-) Aside from the room being to taste we were impressed with the pricing for the rooms. A must stay for any businessman.

I just stayed here on Aug. 14, 2015. I asked to stay in one of the original rooms (cabin). The desk clerk made sure I knew what I was asking for! But, I wanted to experience the OLD days. I got room 27, and it was very clean and was comfortable. It was wallpapered with a wallpaper that made me... More

We stayed at the Autoport (PA's first motel) while attending PSU's accepted students tour. We had a late arrival and found the front desk clerk very courteous and welcoming. I cannot say enough how impressed I was with the cleanliness of the room. We also enjoyed a nightcap in the lounge (even though we don't smoke, the smoking lounge wasn't... More

Let's get something out of the way, the best thing about the Autoport is the BBQ (which is amazing). I took the risk and stayed here after the black light heard round the world Hotel Impossible episode aired and should have stayed away. The room was cramped but, for the price, not so bad. The hotel was also pet friendly... More

We didn't expect more than a room for the night, but ended up having a great time at the bar and had dinner at their on-site restaurant. The food was awesome, the service was prompt, and we saved a bit of money too! Ask for their cabins for a truly one of a kind experience.

My husband and I stayed for PSU friends & families weekend and had a great time. The room was modest and clean (no blow dryer) for the price. The property has two bars, one smoking and one non-smoking and a restaurant. We enjoyed all three. I had a greek omelette for breakfast that was delicious. Although it was closed, they... More

Couple friends and I went to PSU for the weekend to see a football game. We needed a place to stay and found the Autport Motel. Prices were reasonable and we were shocked at how clean and nice the rooms were. Service was great and we will definitely be back for our next trip. And the restaurant isn't too bad... More

I've stayed here a couple times and have been impressed each time. The staff are all very personable and friendly. The rooms are comfortable although are not "modern" which I think adds to their charm. The housekeeping staff cleaned my room thoroughly for a new arrival and did an awesome job cleaning for a stay over. The rooms are very... More

The rooms are disgusting. The bathroom was full of centipedes. But that's not the worst of it! I made the mistake of eating in the restaurant on Saturday 6/30. The waitstaff was rude and the service slow. I paid with a bank card/credit card. When I checked my online bank account the following Monday-- they charged me not once but... More
