The staff was very accommodating, the rooms were spacious and clean, the location was ideal, and the price was very reasonable. This is exactly what one would hope for in a hotel. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Stayed many times bringing our son back to Penn State...our home away from home! The price is wonderful value for the comfort it provides us. We enjoy relaxing in the pool and whirlpool. The room is very comfortable with premium bedding. Very clean and has a fantastic hot breakfast in the morning. Also enjoy the cookies upon arrival!

The front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming during check in and throughout our stay. They even called our room shortly after we checked in to make sure everything was acceptable with our...
