Stayed here one night after driving my son back to Penn State after Thanksgiving break. Room was very clean, bed comfortable, hot shower with great water pressure. Staff was very friendly. Conveniently located on College Ave, although need a car to get to the college downtown area.

Great value, experience, and staff. I would stay here again. Traveled alone for business. Property was well-lit and I felt safe. They provided plenty of coffee in the room, which was a much-appreciated touch.
