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.

This hotel is centrally located right downtown within walking distance of the entire Penn State experience. I had stayed here before and will do so again.

Good place to stay for a work trip

Posted Mar 13, 2017
Cons: Newer and properly functioning gym equipment.
Location: NA
I came in from about 200 miles away for a one day work trip and everything was very easy. The staff was very pleasant, the room was clean, and the water pressure was great (weird but I have been places where it wasn't). Also having Mad Mex attached to the hotel makes everything you need for a overnight stay extremely convenient.

Near all the fun downtown!

Posted Feb 20, 2017
Pros: The Bed, tv channels and the bathroom layout with sink outside was nice, very clean and updated.
Cons: The mirror in the bathroom freaked me out. Lighting I the closet area.
Location: 10 minutes away from everything! Loved it!
We stayed for one night. We actually live nearby but wanted to stay in town for Valentines Day Dinner. It was a very pleasant place to stay and only 10 minutes from everything! Front desk staff were wonderful. Didn't interact with the housekeeping staff. It was a chilly night and the heater would not blow hot air no matter what we set it at. Kind of a chilly overnight stay and especially in the morning. Had to run the hot shower to get warmed up and dressed. No iron board was in the room but we didn't need it. The iron was laying on the floor of the closet when we checked in. The mirror in the bathroom was creepy. My eyes looked weird in it and it was odd to look at myself that way while getting ready for the day. Everything else was great!

Pet Friendly..thats the problem

Posted Feb 13, 2017
We had planned to break up a 15hr drive w a stay at the highly reviewed days inn. The problem was it is pet friendly and barking dogs on our floor made it quite obvious. For this reason we have NEVER stayed at a pet friendly hotel. If this important fact had been better advertised up front..we wouldnt have stayed. Understanding staff put a word in for us to receive a 50% refund. We were grateful..ended up back on the road w no rest and finished drive in snow.
