Nice place for an overnight stay

Our stay was overall very nice and the room was a great value. The free breakfast was surprisingly good, and the waffle maker made it all the better. It's located conveniently close to the Penn State campus and is a good pace to stay if you're visiting with your son/daughter. The room itself was pretty nice, besides the dirty sheets on one of the beds that we had to change ourselves. Other than that, though, no problems with the hotel and we will plan on coming back next year.

Close to University

The hotel was about an 5-10 minute drive from the University but very close to movies and shopping. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage, oatmeal, waffles, breads and pasteries. Tea, coffee, juice, and milk available all day. Staff was friendly. Room was clean.

High quality motel

We had a very comfortable, enjoyable time. The staff was friendly and did a very good job of filling in at breakfast for an employee that did not show up. They handled the pressure very well. A+ stay.

Problems with the details

This is the second time I've stayed at the Best Western University Park and unlike my first visit where all was good, this time there was a number of minor snags. None of these was signicant, but taken together, it started to get annoying and should not be happening in a major chain such as Best Western. For example, the battery on the alarm clock was dead. While it could be reset manually and would operate fine on normal electrical power, the hotel has one of those systems common to European properties that requires a room key to be inserted for the power to come on. So when I removed the key card when going out, the clock lost power and reverted to the dreaded flashing 12:00 display. Despite two requests that it be fixed, nothing was done. Second, the housekeeping staff missed a few small details when cleaning up. Third, the complimentary breakfast was completely out of milk early on my second morning. According to the person responsible, there had been no delivery that day. I suggested perhaps a run to the nearest food mart could have solved the problem easily enough (about a block away), but apaprently that didn't occur to them.
