Nice Hotel

For one thing, the room wasn't ready when we checked in. We had to wait at least an hour for the room. Not the way to build a business.

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.

New Hotel

Brand new hotel. OMG paper thin walls! can hear EVERYTHING on both sides and upstairs. I have a reservation here for later this year and I am going to cancel and change hotels. Its a new hotel, don't they have good cheaper soundproofing technology these days? I won't be surprised if this place is falling apart in a few years.

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.

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.

PSU Football Weekend

Spent 2 nights at the BW in State College 9/14-9/16/2012. The hotel was very clean. Staff was friendly. The Hotel is located north of Campus near the Nittany Mall, so you need to drive into Downtown or take the football shuttle bus on gameday. The hotel staff was very good. The rooms feature 2 queen beds and plenty of room. i was really pleased with the quality of the hotel. They also had a great breakfast every morning

Clean and quiet

Unlike most of the chain hotels in State College. this one seemed to be relatively new. Cleaner and quieter than most in town, though a little far out. Easy ride to Beaver Stadium or BJC, thoug not cloise to College Ave. Overall I was quite happy with my stay here.

Great example for Best Western

Overall a great experience. Our only complaint would be that the bathroom floor was extremely cold and there were no heat vents so we had to keep the door open all the time. The staff was great and the pool area is exceptional. Breakfasts are wonderful and the breakfast staff is excellent! This was not our first time at this hotel and we will definitely stay there again.

Good overnight stay.

We arrived at check-in time hoping to have time to get ready for an evening wedding. We had 2 rooms booked and only 1 was ready. Staff said they would call up to the room when the second room was ready. It took close to 2 hours to get it ready. We managed to get to the wedding on time and had a great overnight stay afterwards. To be fair the hotel was very busy on the weekend.
