“Great Value”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This hotel has been updated since the last time we stayed here. It is a great value. The room was clean. They have redone the paint, new bed linens and carpeting. It had a comfortable bed and a very nice shower. The wi-fi was free. The front desk staff was friendly. We will stay here again. We stayed here after a State College Spike's Game.

We got more than expected at this Hotel. The rooms here are VERY reasonably priced, so our expectations were low, but we were pleasantly surprised.

This Hotel is very clean and updated. All the furniture is in new or near new condition. The beds were comfortable and the wi-fi was free. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

This is not a 4 star Hotel. The rooms were not big and I would describe the bathroom as nice but small. The breakfast is included, but it was just continental, bagels, juice and cereal . . . they did have a little dish of eggs and sausage.

Overall very happy with our brief stay here, it served our purpose very well and was better than what we expected for the excellent price. If you need a brief stay to be near Penn State, I highly recommend this hotel.

Clean rooms, comfy beds, and great front desk. After riding all day the last thing we wanted to do after checking in was get back on our Goldwing and ride to eat dinner. Fortunately for us, there was a TGI Fridays about a 3 minute walk from the hotel. They offered a 10 percent discount off your check at the restaurant if you showed your room card at the Sleep Inn. Would recommend this Sleep Inn to others.

This must have been the best Sleep Inn we have been to. The property is in prime location... our room was very clean, comfortable, and had modern feel to it. This management has done very good job of keeping the hotel well maintained.

The room size is little on the small (for US standards). However, this is on par with most of the European room sizes.

my husband and I went to a concert at the Bryce Jordan Center on May 2. The Sleep Inn was in a great location, just a few miles to the center and easy to find. The frontdesk people were great and friendly, we check in after 5 and was looking for somewhere to grad a bit to eat and they were very helpful. They even explain how to get to the center, for it was our first time in State College. The rooms were wonderful, comforable bed and pillow, slept like a baby, after working all day and then driving. The rooms were clean and quite, even with the window open for air, we didn't hear anything. The breakfast was good, the girl that work that morning was very nice, said good morning to everyone that walked in for breakfast. I would stay with them again for another concert or just to visit. They price was great, one you can afford on a tight budget.

Room Tip: rooms in rear of hotel very quite, enough parking for everyone.

Once I landed, I called the hotel for shuttle pick and they came within 15mins. (I also called ahead of time for a scheduled pick up. But they said to call once I land to confirm & then they would come. But when I called the shuttle was already on its way) The driver was so nice and gave me some useful information along with some tour guide type info. (Like how the TGIF right in front of the Sleep Inn will take 10% off of your bill if you show them your hotel key) I wanted to tip him so I asked him if he could break a $20 bill. He then asked me if it was for a tip and I said yes. He said don't worry about it with a smile. I broke the 20 at the front desk anyway and left him a tip at the front desk. The front desk lady, Shanon, was super friendly and nice. They had free soft and fresh cookies with a donation box next to it. SO good! I took one every time I passed by lol. Breakfast buffet is 6a,-10am everyday. Included fruits, eggs (microwaved patties), sausages, toasts, bagels, cereals, juices, milk, coffee, tea, pastries, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, etc. The lady that was in charge of refilling the food immediately came up to me during breakfast to see if i needed anything. She was also very friendly and kind. I witnessed that the food was refilled immediately for other guests. coffee and tea is available all throughout the day. Hotel was clean, had free wi-fi, free breakfast, free parking, free airport shuttle service, and friendly hotel staff. AND it was inexpensive. I couldn't have asked for more!!

My husband and I just spent two nights at this hotel while house hunting in the area. The room was clean and the amenities were good. The free breakfast was definitely a plus. Staff were VERY friendly and helpful.

Downsides: The pillows were tiny and very strangely shaped! (Little squares!) Gave us neck-aches. The refrigerator in our room was very loud and rumbled. It was pretty obnoxious. Other strange thing was the "sliding" bathroom door. Not a great design feature... and sometimes hard to open and close.

Overall, a good hotel, however.
