Great location to shops, restaurants and campus.

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Cons: The hotel could be updated a bit with new carpet.
Location: Great location for being close to the downtown area and the university.
We arrived very early to State College. I thought I would try to see if I could check in at that time. The person behind the desk was so nice and was able to accommodate us at 11am. I was very pleased about that.

Perfect Location

Posted Jun 24, 2017
Pros: Staff and location. Room was pleasant if not opulent.
Cons: Could use a small coffee shop or offer basic breakfast items.
Location: Too many nice small restaurants and bars to mention. Nearby food establishments high quality for a college town.
Staff is really attentive and cheerful. Could not be placed better in the city and that allows for a totally walkable experience if you choose. So many restaurants, cafes and small shops at your doorstep. Altogether a very positive experience at the Days Inn.

Ideal location, great experience

Downtown location is very central for access to bars and restaurants. The facilities themselves are modern enough and well maintained. On the whole very pleased with my experience and will stay here again on future visits.

Nice hotel at walking distance to PennState

Posted Jun 2, 2017
On my first time going to Pennsylvania for my daughter New Student Orientation at Penn State, I couldn't choose any better... walking about 4 small blocks and was already at the University Park Campus. The staff at the hotel was more than nice. They have free shuttle service to the airport. The room was very comfortable... I did not give them all the rating because I have a lot of allergies and I was very specific about that when I booked the room and seem like they didn't read that part. For my next visit, I will call the hotel directly

Hotel was very nice. Clean rooms and staff was friendly. Pool was also a plus. Close to everything downtown. Would be nice if they offered a breakfast. Will use this hotel again.

Very convenient location

Posted Apr 28, 2017
My son and I were visiting Penn State University and the hotel is located within walking distance to the campus. I found the hotel staff to be very cordial and accomodating. As my son embarks on being a student at Penn State, I have no doubts that I will be staying here numerous times in the near future.

Clean, modernized, dog-friendly, great location

Posted Apr 17, 2017 on Hotels
Some hotels will permit you to check in early, but this hotel stuck tight to their policy of no check in before 3pm. That was inconvenient. It is an old hotel, but they've done a good job keeping up with the rooms, which are very clean and have been modernized. It is a dog-friendly hotel, so expect some barking. Nice pool. I would come back again.
