Spent the weekend here in early January while visiting Penn State. First problem came at check-in where the room type we reserved was not available, but instead of telling us, we were just given another room. When calling to inquire the issue with our room, we were told it was given away - later to learn several long-term residents did not check out on time, thus our room type was given to them. After a discussion with the manager, we were adequately compensated for the issue to our satisfaction.
This hotel is well located if you plan to visit Penn State, about 2-3 miles. Several restaurants and stores nearby. Breakfast area and common areas are well maintained. The rooms are certainly showing their age when compared to many other Residence Inn Hotels I've stayed at recently. The furniture, applicances and carpets show their age. The beds are just OK, not bad, but not up to the current quality standards of a newer or recently renovated Marriott. The morning breakfast was adequate and there was at least one person there who maintained the area. Aside from the poor training of the front desk clerk when we checked in, we did find the staff to be friendly. We also found the rooms to be cleaned very well and the cleaning staff were very friendly.
