We stayed here overnight when visiting my daughter at Penn State. Check in time was 3:00 p.m. We arrived at 3:10 and were told that a room wasn't available because they were not cleaned yet. It would be at least 15 more minutes and they would call when it was ready. We took a drive to get my daughter something to eat and they did call in 20 minutes with a room that was cleaned. I asked if it had a refrigerator and they said no that would be longer because none of those rooms were cleaned yet. We drove back to hotel arriving at 3:50 and the room with a refrigerator still wasn't ready. I told the recepitionist to just get us a room as now I was losing my patience. She told me they would bring a refrigerator up shortly. Why wasn't I told this in the beginning. They wheeled a portable refrigerator into the room 45 minutes later.
The spa or hot tube next to the pool was out of order and that was disappointing. The pool is very small. If there are kids using it, it gets crowded.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The morning coffee was also tasty. As for our stay, there are other hotels that are cheaper and had better service than this one!
Will not bother going back here.
