Please accept our sincere apologizes for failing to meet your expectations during your recent stay. We appreciate the time you took to tell us about your stay. Your willingness to share your experience can help us to make changes that will improve our service. In general our hotel is a very quit place but during the summer we do receive a lot of group reservations for ball teams and it can and does get quite noisy.Please do not let this one bad experience keep you from staying with us in the future.

Michael, Thank you for the review. I am happy to hear that you had a good stay. Tony's Restaurant and Pub located on site make it easy for our guests to find a nice place to have dinner and/or drinks after a long day of driving or working without having to travel from the hotel. Please be sure to stay with us again when next in the area. Best Regards, Cathy A Collins, GM/CHA

Dear, Cystal, I apologize for any issues you had during your stay with us. Our staff works very hard to ensure that all of our guests feel welcome, have a clean room and enjoy their stay. It was very disappointing to hear that you were unhappy. I am not sure what you saw or thought you say in regard to police raids, prostitution or drugs but I can assure you that these things do not occur at our hotel. I am sorry if our pub hours did not fit in to your schedule. Our restaurant is open 4:30pm to 8:30pm Monday through Thursday and 4:30pm to 9pm on Friday and Saturday. The pub is open during the restaurant hours and general for one half hour after closing. Our Pub is caters to our restaurant guest and is not intended for late night entertainment. I do hope that your stay in State College was good and at least that portion of your weekend was enjoyable. Best Regards, Management and Staff

Dear guests, Please accept our apologies for failing to meet your expectations. Our staff works very hard to accommodate our guests needs. It was very disappointing to hear that you were unhappy. Had we know your were not satisfied with your room we would have been more than happy to move you to a room more to your liking. I apologize for restaurant being closed. As you know from staying here we are not a destination hotel and our business slows down during the holiday season. We have made significant changes to our guest rooms such as flat panel TVs, microwaves and refrigerators. We have future plans to replace the bedding and also add a breakfast room so that we can offer the Q Breakfast to our many guests. I thank you again for taking the time to comment on your stay.

Needs a major update

Posted Nov 7, 2016 on Hotels
The check in process was a bit slow because the clerk was new. Very pleasant man though. The rooms are OLD and the rugs were sagging and seemed dirty. The beds seemed clean as did the old bathroom. We were stuck for a last minute place to stay after a night game at Penn State. Next time I'll book in advance in a nicer place. This wasn't cheap price wise but I would have expected to pay more for much nicer accommodations.

Sufficient hotel for the area

Posted Nov 1, 2016
I attended a wedding at the Bell Mountain Estate in Lewistown. The hotel was very close to the location and close to other businesses. The room had basic facilities. The bathroom was small, but it served the purpose of the visit. The staff was helpful and our room was available before the check-in time, so we were able to check-in early.

Not great

Posted Sep 19, 2016 on Hotels
The place was okay. AC was noisy, Restaurant service in the evening was slow. We walked out on breakfast because we didn't see anyone in the 10 minutes we were there.

Disappointed.

Posted Sep 12, 2016 on Hotels
Very disappointing. It was overpriced for where we were. The hotel lobby was so dark you could hardly see. Ice makers were not working and had to get ice from main desk. Restaurant and bar was closed and that is one reason that we had picked that hotel. Would not stay there again.

Convenient and Clean.

Posted Aug 30, 2016 on Hotels
Very good location near the highway. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Just avoid the restaurant. You wait FOREVER for the food, and when it comes it is not good.

Good for a one day visit

Posted Aug 27, 2016 on Hotels
Our room was a nice size. There wasn't much around to eat without getting back in the car so we tried the restaurant. It wasn't busy but we had to flag down the waitress for refills to our drinks. The food was just ok.
