We'll stay here again!

We had a quick but great stay at the Nittany Lion Inn. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff was very helpful (especially in getting my daughter's wallet, which was left at Rec Hall, returned to her) and friendly. We had lunch at Whiskers. Our waiter Jack was attentive and the food was tasty. The brunch buffet in the dining room was very good!
