We booked a room at the Inn to take our daughter on a college tour of Penn State. The hotel sits on campus so I have to give it 5 stars in terms of location but 2 stars overall. The room we stayed in (1st floor)was very dated. The carpet had stains in various spots that compelled us to keep our shoes on and the wall paper was peeling and discolored. We checked in and left the room to tour the campus. Upon returning to the room that evening we found the heater/room cooler to be very loud. The beds were not comfortable at all. I thought perhaps this was just my take on them, but my husband and daughter felt the same way. The room was a decent size and there were plenty of fresh towels. There is a small single serve coffee pot, however when we attempted to make a cup it was not drinkable. The unit needs to be either replaced or serviced, as it brewed it filled the cup with some sort of white floating foam (Not creamer). For the cost of the room, I was expecting better. We paid $150 with tax for a small room with two double beds. We have stayed the night in a few hotels in the last few weeks on college tours and this was by far our least favorite and yet most expensive room. I would rather drive 6 hours to get back home then stay the night again at this hotel again. The staff was friendly and the cleaning crew do a fine job. The areas that need addressing are beyond their control.
