YES the Hotel is a little dated, However it is far better than the rating it has on TA ?
The staff are excellent, willing to help in any way they can, We stayed on the 6th floor and found our room to be quiet, in good condition with a very comfortable bed.
The air conditioning was noisy (no different than others in older hotels), but acted as "white noise". The location is excellent in that you can walk to restaurants and it has it's own car park in downtown State College, additionally has a bar and its own restaurant.
It certainly has it's quirks, but overall a good choice and quite charming.
