Bad Bed

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Restaurant - If you like onion rings - they have the best I've ever tasted.
Cons: new mattresses
Location: The hotel was centrally located in downtown with close proximate to the University.
The look of the room was suitable but the beds were a total disappointment.....so worn and soft that you rolled into the middle and every time you moved it felt like you were sleeping in a bowl of jelly. If you want a good nights sleep, try somewhere else.

Lovely hotel

Posted May 13, 2014
The Atherton is a great hotel right in the middle of downtown State College. Penn State is across the street and it's in easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and pharmacies. Underground parking is convenient and the staff was very nice and helpful.

Business Trip to PennState University

Posted Apr 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Atherton has an excellent location for anyone heading to State College. It is downtown and across the street from the University. Staff service and support is excellent and helpful. The physical plant is in need of a refresh. Carpets, sheets, table cloths, beds, TVs are all in need of replacement and upgrade.
