          Property is conveniently located right on campus. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The food and service at the Whiskers is good. I highly recommend staying here.

          Room was very quiet, food exceptional, service over the top and the piano player in the lobby was worth more than the price of admission. Experience has always been top notch and great location for PSU.

          Very friendly people. Hotel had spacious rooms and was conveniently located to all campus and College Av. activities. Whiskers bar is friendly, good service, and has a nice outdoor patio. Most parking is available at a nearby garage that you don't have to pay for.
