I was pleasantly surprised with this motel. It was a last minute trip. People were friendly and the scenery was nice too. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the locals were always willing to help you find your way.

This place is Central and offers a very good rate. It's one of the renovated Motel 6 – I think most of them are now. The reception staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room itself, I had one with a king bed, was a good size. The only complaint I would have is that the floor wasn't very clean,...

Very nice place, large comfortable rooms without the normal amenities, clock, fridge coffee pot, breakfast etc. However if you want a place to rest your head, get yourself clean without breaking the bank, this is a place for you. Very convenient to dining and shopping.

We were in town for a Penn State game so of course the price was jacked up, but that was the norm for all the hotels in the area. The place was clean and decent, nothing fancy, but it worked for what we needed which was just a room to sleep in. We went to a concert Friday night at...

i stayed there on 11/21 on the way back from a Penn State game. i have stayed there in the past. Rooms were just redone. Clean, no frills rooms. Shower pressure was awful but you can deal with it. Has wooden floors which is odd for a motel. Overall not a bad place for a quick stay.

Me and my boyfriend travel once a year up to state college to go to our yearly Penn State game, and we have tried many hotels 20 miles of State College looking for a good price as we are on a tight budget. We have had our fair share of terrible hotels on this trips, and let me tell you,...

Not that the room didn't have room for them, but no fridge, no microwave. Price was good, couldn't complain at that. Pet Friendly was a plus. King bed was comfy, shower was decent and room was clean. Staff was friendly. So if you don't need the fridge or microwave, not a bad place to stay.

Motel 6 must be stuck in the Don Draper era. Upon arriving, my colleague and I were placed in smoking rooms, which stank so horribly I could barely sleep. I spoke with two front desk staff members about this, who explained that Motel 6 corporate policy did not guarantee non-smoking rooms, and that, had I wanted non-smoking rooms, I would...

We have stayed here several times - usually arriving late in the evening and out by 6:30 the next morning. The surroundings seem safe and the rooms are always clean and fresh smelling. My only complaint is the poor wifi service. Otherwise, a great value.

Thank BellesMomma
