My family and I have been coming up to State College for 18 years. We started staying at this location when it was the Nittany Budget Inn, remodeled into a Motel 6, and now a Quality Inn. We've never had a problem here and have enjoyed staying at all three incarnations for 10+ years. Now that it is a Quality Inn there is a refridgerator, a comfy computer chair, an arm chair, and a hair dryer in the room. The bathrooms also now have the usually mini-toiletries found in other hotels. Breakfast fare was bagels, danish, eggs, sausage gravy, assorted juices/coffee/tea, and fruit. The staff at the desk were all extremely courteous and helpful (with obtaining cabs and numbers for various restaurants in the area).
The only detraction from the room would be that the paint in the bathroom was peeling - this after a supposed "remodel." But it isn't the Ritz nor the Nittany Lion Inn so if that is the worst of it for the money - who cares?!
The hotel is also only about a mile from campus/College Avenue which makes it in a prime location.
I took away a few points on "value" because I hate how all the hotels in the area raise their room rates for football weekend. Ridiculous.
