“Clean - OK for quick stop if need this area”
Reviewed March 18, 2008

I must admit I was a bit concerned driving up at midnight to stay there. It's in the middle of a field, with a run down gas station next to it - a little tricky to find the entrance (the small sign is the clue). It reminded me of the movie Vacancy (but with 2 floors), but luckily it picked up from there. Although the outside by the rooms is worn (yet the main front entrance area is fairly well kept), once inside the room, things were reasonable for a motel. The room was clean, the linens fresh, not too small, a little sitting area next to the bed, a small desk/table, small sink outside the bath area. The bathroom was a bit tight - if I were a few years older, would have been very difficult to turn on the bath water (maneuvering around the toilet) without actually getting in first. The "bath towels" were the size of most hotel hand towels, but reasonably soft. Condiments were provided, as was a small coffee maker & coffee. The bathroom fan was quite noisy, but while showering, not too important.
Options: In this region, there isn't much to pick from. Super 8 across street seemed similar (did not stay there). 10 minutes away is the Best Western in Milroy, which is a hotel rather than a motel. The lobby there was OK looking - did not check the rooms - rest looks well kept. The only other option is State College, which is about 40 minutes away, that has a slew of nicer hotels.
All in all, if I had to stay in Burnham for a night or 2, Quality Inn was OK. For slightly longer or if 10 minutes further OK, would check out the Best Western. If 40 minutes away were OK, would definitely hit civilization in State College.

My son and I were traveling from Philadelphia to State College area to check out the college for enrollment. This was one of the closest motels that wasn't booked due to game week at the Penn State campus. We were in very late so didn't get a great look around before checking in. We did notice the room smelled like a swamp- not just the carpet, but the night stand as well. The beds, however, did look inviting with what looked like new bedspreads. When morning came we realized we were in a dump. The shower head barely misted, There was a bloody handprint on the room door by the chain lock, and the burn pile was going strong a few feet from our room. Very scary place. My teenage son thought if hell could take the form of a hotel this is what it would look like. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone. You would be better off sleeping in your car in a different parking lot.

We were at the Clarion Inn Burnham for three nights. Rooms were very clean and stocked with towels, soaps and other things. The hot water for tea in the lobby was cold every morning even after saying something to the receptionist. Dinner took forever to get to us after ordering. We were not in a big hurry, but were very tired. Breakfast was terrible. It took 15 min just to get coffee and another 45 min. to get our meal. There were only five tables of people in the dinning room. We were on a time schedule and were almost late even with allowing an hour extra of time. The management said thay were busier than expected. Our problem is, if you know how many rooms are booked, expect that many people. Like I said there were people at 5 tables and they couldn't handle them.

  • Liked — First floor room and could pull car right up to the door
  • Disliked — Food service was terrible
