Average, but improving
Posted Dec 2, 2013 on Orbitz
I know the overall reviews of this hotel are not good. However, I have stayed there five times and I haven't had an unpleasant stay. The owners are trying to make improvements, but the hotel is still old. For example, the roomkey is still the old fashioned key and not a card. Make sure the door is locked and the chain lock is used.
Like the saying goes, you get what you paid for. All I needed was a place to stay for the night and a quick shower in the morning. Considering the hotel is less than 30 minutes from State College, it was a convenient and inexpensive stopping point for Penn State football weekends. Book in advance. The rates were double what I paid the day of the stay.
If you are particular where you stay, this hotel is not for you. If you can look past some of the downsides of an older hotel, this place could work for you.
