    Here in business - rooms are a little dated but in State College one of the nicer hotels. The staff are friendly and accommodating as well. Very close to all PSU activity and in the heart of campus. Nice place.

    Courteous staff from valet to housekeeping! Clean spacious yet cozy rooms and bath. Had two restaurants and room service. Conveniently located to campus and most must see attractions. Easy to make reservations yourself rather online or call in. 5 stars!
