Clean room, quiet, bargain price. I could not ask for anything more. The staff at this facility does a great job. I will stay at this Rodeway again. Convenient location just off I-99 on route 322 Bus. The cost made it a real bargain.

Room Tip: The rooms do not face the highway so you do not get the noise.

Although the outside of this motel looks very dated, the room was perfect for us. We had a comfortable bed in a very large room. The carpeting looked fairly new. Air conditioning worked fine as did the nice size refrigerator. The TV was older but worked perfectly as did the WiFi. Front desk folks were quite helpful and friendly. Breakfast was on the small side but at least they provided something. We would definitely stay here again the next time we are in town.

Checked into this hotel late...treated well by the front desk manager...good older room with excellent heat...in front of door car parking...wireless internet access...really what you want in a hotel is a clean warm room, good bed, and hot shower in the morning...they did all of the above very well at a fair price.

The motel is old and shows its years. Our room had two queen bed and basic furniture. The ceiling was low. The bathroom was small but clean. Location is good for Penn State University on a busy road. Breakfast is coffee and danish.

I tried this motel to speand a night after long day of journey. I Asked the old desk guy to show me a room and he walked with us to show the room. from outside motel looks OK but inside the rooms are too small, not enough room to turn around, bathroom is too small, I rather stay at other hotels in the town they have nice and large spacy room for little more money. This motel's breakfast is joke!.

Room Tip: Higher price but too samll for family.

The location of this hotel can't be faulted. The hotel is only 2 blocks from Penn State's campus. It is excellent value for money. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. What more can you ask for! It appears that the hotel is undergoing a renovation with new carpets which are very nice. Overall A Solid Stay at the Rodeway Inn.

Pros:
-Close location to campus
-Clean, quiet, spacious rooms
-Microwave & Fridge in rooms
-Simple breakfast
-Family owned and run, so there is a personal touch

Cons:
-AC was really really loud

I visited Rodeway Inn during very busy period of Penn State welcome week. From only 2 available hotels in the neighborhood it was twice cheaper. It has perfect location - shops, restaurants, even campus within walking distance. here were excellent people at the front desk, room was much better looking than hotel from the outside, spacious, very clean (though with a little bit of smoke smell), linen and towels impeccable, new looking carpet, comfortable beds, pleasant shower with different options of water spray, AC - loud, TV - small, fast wi-fi. Breakfast... well... I have never seen something like this called breakfast till then. But may be it's because of my inexperience in USA hotels. All breakfast was placed on about 1.5x0.3 meter shelf, with sparse choice, no place to eat there, but everything I took - my coffee, little muffin, tiny cake and even banana were quite good.

All in all: I have had a pleasant stay and I will not be against staying there again.
