    Looks like the property has been recently remodeled, however they still have roaches. When I mentioned it to the staff, he seemed less than surprised. Totally disappointed since it is a great location, so close to the school.

    I attended a convention held at the Inn. Very lovely place right in the middle of the Penn State campus. Staff was very friendly, room was very clean. Great for just about any occasion. You're greeted by friendly staff and fresh apples!
